This is the last week of Bricktober and while the Buy-2-Get-1-Free sale never materialized, Toys’R’Us is offering dollar discounts: spend $50 or more on LEGO construction sets or games and receive a $10 discount or spend $100 or more and receive a $25 discount. The catch is that it does not apply to LEGO Star Wars sets, but Pirates of the Caribbean and Harry Potter are fair game. If you need a small LEGO set to tip the bill over the threshold, the stores are awash with Collecitble Minifigures Series 5 right now. Beware of any potential TRU mark up that may affect your potential savings. This offer is good both online and in-store. They offer free shipping on orders $75 or more, so it might save you a car trip to order online. And finally, you also get a free “Astronaut” magnet with a purchase of $20 or more.
Update: I’ve been told that in order to get the dollar discount to work online, you have to delete the free promotional items in your cart since the online system won’t allow promotions to stack. You didn’t want a glued minifig magnet anyway.
Update: That 30055 Vulture Droid set we reported on earlier? While they were physically at Toys’R’Us retail stores for a few weeks now, they were unavailable for purchase until now. You can buy them individually for $4.99 or if you spend $30 or more on a LEGO construction or game set, you can get it for free.
Also, there’s a 25% off Cyber Week promotion going on at the website. It says “up to 25%” on LEGO. The selection isn’t very big, but 7965 Millennium Falcon is priced at $112.49, down from TRU price of $149.99, regular MSRP is $139.99. The funny thing is, despite the discount saying that LEGO Star Wars is excluded, if you remove all the promotional items, the $25 dollar discount applies automatically, for a net price of $87.49 and you still score free shipping. That’s about a 40% savings off of MSRP. There are a few other sets on sale as well such as 7962 Anakin’s and Sebulba’s Podracers for $71.24, 7964 Republic Frigate for $97.49. For the Republic Frigate, you can add 1 Collectible Minifigures Series 5 to bring your total up past $100 to trigger the $25 dollar discount. Again, this particular deal is only available online and ONLY for today, Sunday October 23rd.
