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.
I, personally, have been waiting for this one: 7789 Lotso’s Dump Truck is finally seeing a discount: $12.99 down from $19.99. This was the last set I needed to complete my Toy Story collection before the line goes poof (it’s already discontinued).
With the approach of summer sets, there is also the arrival of clearance sales. Reports are flooding in of Summer clearance at Target stores, with themes including Power Miners, City, Star Wars and Indiana Jones sets. Some noteworthy finds include:
8037 Y-Wing 30% off
8039 Venator 30% off
7199 Temple of Doom 30% off
This varies drastically from store to store, but it’s worth checking out if you have a Target nearby. Be sure to check in occasionally over the coming weeks when they up the savings to 50% off or higher. Also be sure to scan clearance items, because they may even have outdated labels and are cheaper than advertised! Happy hunting!
