Walmart Discounts TDOS Sets Up To 24% Off

Postby Staff » Thu Dec 12, 2013 3:25 pm

79011 Dol Guldur Ambush

The good news: Walmart is applying a discount on all of the The Desolation of Smaug LEGO sets as high as 24% off. The bad news: all but one of the sets are unavailable for delivery, meaning you'll have to order online and go to your local store to pick up.

Other good news: LEGO [email protected] has all of the Smaug sets in stock AND you'll get a free Hobbit poster with any purchase. Other bad news: no discount.

Went to a local Walmart that had 79012 Mirkwood Elf Army set in stock tonight. They had it for full price, $29.99, told the lady had it for $25 and she told me that Walmart stores no longer price match the website.

She says they quit doing that a while back. I hadn't heard about that, has anyone else?

I ended up not picking up the set just because I was ticked off they wouldn't price match. I can order it online and do store pick up at that location, but I can't get a price match, that seems stupid to me.

You can always do "Pick Up Today" online and get the same price, in the store. You can even do it from the mobile app and usually pick them up quickly. I did that for this sale, and have the Ambush set waiting for me at one of my local stores.

As to the price match, that's always been at the discretion of the store managers. says everywhere that prices may vary in stores, and they' don't typically do the match there. Kind of the downside to doing all of the Amazon and instant-matches, since there's not an easy way to verify or control (or more frequently, even keep stock in the stores when that happens).
If the above post didn't offend you, you're probably reading it wrong.
