I was able to go directly to the product link, order 2, and still get the deal despite it saying it expired.

It actually does appear to still be working despite the page saying it has expired - it is taking 50% off the cheapest set in my cart still. Just a minute ago got the Toy Story Train and the Star Wars Y-wing fighter for $86.78. The problem is we don't have the page showing us what sets qualify - and many of the discounted prices from last night are gone (Fire Brigade was $140 last night and $150 today - but still works for the 50% off second one deal). There is a page on this at brickset that lists a bunch of the sets so you can look there if still interested. Good luck!

All of the PoP set are/were in the sale, some of the Toy Story sets. I just tried with the largest PoP set and it still shows the discount on the final checkout page, though all of the prices went up from last night.

For me, the sale started at midnight PST and I was able to order pairs of like priced items to get the maximum discount. Now just waiting for Amazon to actually ship.

Many of the set prices changed this afternoon. POP sets were around 33% off before the 25% would kick in. If you ordered early today you ended up getting 30% off the tantive and fire brigade. Still a good deal but I was happy I placed an order last night and just had it adjusted.
eBay store, contact me if you'd like to perform trades from my inventory. I'm looking for original genosian fighers, second version a-wing fighters and tie bombers. I may be interested in other sets so let me know what you have.

After being in the online chat for about 20 minutes, the guy couldn't get a Tantive IV and Battle of Endor to work. It was applying the discount if you want to buy two Tantive IVs, but Endor is a no go, for me at least.

That's because the endor set is not part of the sale. only the sets shown on the two pages of the link work.

for any of you having trouble, just keep trying.
seems a silly thing to say, but as you might have gathered from the above info...
stock goes in and out without rhyme or reason.

i was trying to get the discounted neptune carrier (down to $45 from $60)
and the discounted quest against time (down to $40 from $50)

earlier today, the neptune carrier was in stock,
but by the time i got to check out,
it was gone from amazon's stock...
and it was sending me to another seller, but fulfilled by amazon,
and the %50 off the 2nd item wasn't showing up.

came back tonight, and lo... neptune carrier back in stock.
with the original price reductions + the added discount...
$110 MSRP for $65.
no tax, no shipping....
if you add in the 8.25 sales tax i saved,
that's 45% off the total order.

It seems the good sales always pop up when there is nothing I need.

I really should stop buying all the sets I want the day they hit the shelves.

I'll be making the same trip you are returning the Y-Wing and ARC-170.

In my case, it seems the good sales always pop up when I don't have any spare money.

Ordered Tantive IV on 7-Dec. It arrived 8-Dec. Didn't realize it came in yesterday as my wife had ordered some stuff on Amazon and thought it was her order. I came home late yesterday from work and didn't check the box. So I was pretty happy when I came home for lunch today and checked the box.

Just received my fire brigade and tantive. Went online to check my invoice and they didn't adjust my original total. I got onto chat and the guy from India said he saw a note on the account about the retroactive discount and that he was issuing my 25% credit. He ended up giving me way more than that amount. My order total was 279.98 and he refunded me 97.99 which is 35%! Considering the trouble I had to go through before and after, I think it's just good karma coming around to visit me.
