For what it’s worth, Toys R Us is offering a Buy 2 Get 1 Free on all LEGO (excluding Star Wars and Pharaoh’s Quest) today only. This is good in-stores and online.
You can also still get the free LEGO backpack with an order of $30 or more, and get free shipping online with an order of $100 or more.
Thanks BrickUpdate for posting about this in the forum last night. Hopefully some can take advantage of the deal, though with the two hot sellers excluded and a lot of sets still sold out from the holidays, it’ll be hard.
