Shop@Home “Clearance” Sale

LEGO Brand Retail

Shop@Home put a bunch of things on discount on their Sales and Deals page. Considering most of these are end of life, I’d guess they just want to try and get rid of them in order to make room for the summer sets. Either that or they’re just sitting around, collecting dust, and not making any money for LEGO. In any case, if you’re looking to stock up, these savings might be worth it to you. Some discounts are better than others. A few notable licensed set items:

Toy Story:

Prince of Persia:

There are also a couple of keychains on sale if those types of things catches your fancy.

Thanks to that guy from our forums.

Amazon’s Plummeting Prices, Shipping Deadlines – Update 2

7789 Lotso's Dump Truck

Update 2: Free Super Saver Shipping deadline in time for Christmas delivery has been extended to December 19.

Update: It seems the BOGO page has been taken down with a message saying that “this deal has expired.” I pushed two Lotso’s dump truck through to the final order screen and still saw a 25% discount. If you act fast enough before they change their code, you can still net the discount.

This might be one of the last updates I do for Amazon. Their window for Christmas delivery using Free Super Saver Shipping closes on December 17, which is tomorrow. So if you’ve been procrastinating about ordering stuff from Amazon, tomorrow would be your deadline to save on shipping and still get things in time for Christmas. Of course, if you have Amazon Prime, that’s a whole other ball game. You can view their shipping schedule for more information.

One other thing you have to consider is that once an item that is sold and shipped by Amazon is sold out, third party vendors items become the default shopping option, and prices tend to shoot upwards once that happens. So with that, let’s move on to the deals.

Amazon still has their BOGO 50% off page up and running. Scanning the deals, I’ve spotted a few sets that continue to go lower in price.

Remember, all the sets above qualify for the BOGO 50% off discount.

Not on BOGO, but:

  • 7596 Trash Compactor Escape is discounted pretty nicely: $29, down $10 bucks and some change since our last mention.
  • The price of 8038 The Battle of Endor has slowly but steadily been dropping the past few days. It currently stands at $82.24, down from $99.99. One of the best OT sets ever made.
  • You can never have enough tauntauns, amirite? 7749 Echo Base is down to $21.19 with free 3-5 day standard shipping.
  • And finally, In LEGO Duplo news, 5816 Mack’s Road Trip is down to $29, down from $49.99.

Not on BOGO but the following items are seeing a pretty nice discount:
