UCS SSD


Browsing through the Walmart.com inventory, they have a number of large discounts on the larger Star Wars sets, as well as various other $100+ items. Here are some notable deals:

>>10188 Death Star is $357.89 ($399.99 MSRP)
>>10221 Super Star Destroyer is $335.99 (MSRP $399.99)
>>10225 UCS R2-D2 is $151.19 (MSRP $179.99)
>>10217 Diagon Alley is $125.99 (MSRP $149.99)
>>Modular Building Series is around $120 range ($149.99 MSRP), though most are sold out online.
>>(10224 Town Hall is $161.97 (MSRP $199.99).
>>10231 Shuttle Expedition is $78.27 ($99.99 MSRP)
>>10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper and 10219 Maersk Train are $99-100 (MSRP $119.99)

All of these qualify for $.99 Shipping or free Site-To-Store Shipping, though I've heard some troubling stories about Walmart's shipping quality. Amazon.com has already price-matched some of these like 10231 Shuttle Expedition, 10224 Town Hall, and 10225 R2-D2, and they also qualify for Free Super Saver Shipping.

Thanks a bunch for the heads up. I've been wanting the Shuttle Expedition set for a while and that's a great discount. All you Discover Card members out there, remember that you can shop Wal-Mart's website through the Shopdiscover site and get an additional 5% in rewards dollars.

I thought these might be in response to the b1g1 40% sale from tru this week. If you're getting 20% off or better at amazon, it's a steal with free shipping and no tax if you live in a "good" state for it.

Yeah thanks a bunch... NOT! I really, really need to turn off tweet notifications for you guys. I just bought the SSD, TB, GE and Pet Shop yesterday. I have no self control or closet space... sigh. :)

Amazon is matching WM's Pet Shop and Fire Brigade price, the pet shop is sold out on WM too. $223.18 shipped to me for both on Amazon, hard to pass up!

Exactly! I couldn't justify NOT buying them. I mean come on! Eating is overrated anyway.

Oh man I wish I had $337 to spare for the Death Star right now - I'd take the savings over the VIP points from LEGO next week!

Thank goodness for credit cards. Gives me 30 days to sell of some other stuff to pay for this! Was not going to make the UCS Falcon mistake again...

It figures. Right when I was ordering it, it jumps back up.

I feel like I finally pulled the trigger on this set at the best possible time. Almost ordered yesterday from Walmart, but just couldn't get past the $20+ in tax. Thank you Amazon!
