67%-75% off at S@H

Postby Nannan » Fri Jan 21, 2011 3:37 am

S@H has further lowered the prices of their sale items. As of 5am EST, all magnet sets are at $4.48, keychains are $1.48, the Wind Turbine Transport is $18.00, Shadow Snapper is $8.98, and more stuff are at 67%-75% off. Nothing is listed as sold out. Good thing I'm in China right now and it's the afternoon, so I didn't sleep off these great deals :)

Thanks for the heads up buuuuuuuudy. Grabbed a Shadow Snapper, a single drum roller and a Ackbar, Leia, 3po magnet set for 27 plus shipping. Not bad. I did notice that the Power Miners section is gone. Are they doing away with Power Miners?

I haven't heard anything official, but I think PM is gone for now and I wouldn't expect it to show up again any time soon, if at all.

yeah, great deals! I never buy duplo, but for 75% off, i snagged that toy story crane. Not to mention, can never have enough scout troopers and ewoks! Tossed in a couple of those pump action cars for dirt cheap, why not.

Yes, thanks for the heads up Nannan! My wallet doesn't appreciate it, but I do. I was able to score some Rollers and Shadow Snappers too, which at those prices are amazing deals. I'm bummed I missed the Wind Turbines at $18.00 though. If any FBTB-er grabbed a bunch and is looking trade some away, let me know.

Blah. I had ONE shadow snapper set in my cart, got to the final submit page, and suddenly had it removed as being out of stock. Guess the order isn't "reserved" even when it's in your cart and don't check out fast enough?

I appreciate the heads-up, at least. Does anyone know if these sales would be applicable at a b&m LEGO store, as well?

Thanks a lot for the notification! I posted about it on the home page.

I got three magnet sets and a keychain for about $20 (down to $10 after using VIP points). Not too shabby at $1 per minifigure, lesser quality or not.

Since posting, 7747 Wind Turbine Transport is also now listed as $18 (down from $60!) with a "call to check product availability" on it.

I called about the Wind Turbines when they were listed as "call to check...", but they were out. However, the interesting thing I did learn is that Lego actually has 2 different inventory systems. There's main one for S@H and one for S@H Customer Service which is tied into the warehouse, which I guess is supposed to be more accurate. So I guess the call wasn't a total waste. :|

I would have bought a Wind Turbine Transport at that price. Crazy thing is that I was just going to bed last night when that sale went live. If I'd only checked that before I went to bed. Oh well. I might go snag some magnet sets - can't complain too much when it's below 1/3 of the MSRP.

As of 1:30 pm EST, the Wind Turbine, Roller, Shadow Snapper are back up listed as "call to check availability". However, don't get too excited. My 3rd call of the day to S@H was again highly insightful. This time I learned that their inventory and the website are all out of whack today. The Turbines are supposedly all gone, regardless of what the website reads and their internal system only showed 3 items for "sales and deals". As Deandre Cole would say, what's up with that ?!?

Am I the only one who finds it odd that the minifig magnet sets are STILL available? How many are they trying to unload?

Heh. The UCS Obi-Wan Starfighter is off of the sale and back up to $99.99...yeah good luck with that. I got it at 75 bucks, and I'm very happy with it for that price point. 100 is just too much for what it is.

I thought these magnets were glued now? Are the ones available on sale not glued together?

Do you mean that there weren't any Turbine Transports to begin with? That would've been a bummer.

I believe that cygnet at The Ugly Duckling at Bricklink (it's a mouthful, I know) reported that he managed to snag a turbine set.

The people who got in on the clearance early enough to buy 7747 'wind turbine transport' said it sold out very quickly, so there couldn't have been many. Of course, maybe someone snagged a ton, but my point is that the window of availability was small enough that I wouldn't lose sleep over it.

I ordered a wind turbine early this morning and it went through. Then an hour later I got an e-mail saying it is on back order. :(

No, I'm pretty sure they were there at the start of the day. However, the S@H reps told me that once they went from available to out of stock Friday morning they were gone for good. The "Call for product availability" listings were errors. The turbines were sold out and the listing should have stayed that way, or so they said. Who knows though, their system seemed to have serious problems today.

Thanks for clarifying that, I ordered mine right when the sale went live, so I should be able to get it.
