On Sale: 20% Off At Big W (Plus Possible Extra 10%)

It is looking like this weekend could be the perfect storm of LEGO offers at Big W.

They are advertising 20% off LEGO on Saturday November 18th and Sunday November 19th. Both online and in-store.

Big W 20 percent off November 2017

With Big W’s already lower than RRP prices on most sets, a 20% off sale works out to be great value.

What might push you over the edge is that there is a supposed Family & Friends sale on too. This doesn’t appear to be advertised on the Big W website at all but the flyer (linked below) has been doing the rounds online. It could be a fake but doesn’t seem like it.

Assuming that the offers stack you should get 28% off Big W prices. This could be an expensive weekend.

For the Family and Friends sale you will need to scan the barcode or use FF10 online. The 20% off sale doesn’t require any work from you.

On Sale: 20% Off City & Friends + Selected Sets On Sale At Target

Target 200x200

I think that we can probably expect the major retailers to have some LEGO on sale from now until Christmas and the latest catalogue from Target is proving that point with a few different offers.

First up is a 20% off sale on two popular themes – Friends and City. Target prices can be lower than RRP so a 20% off sale works out to be fairly decent.

The catalogue also features a range of sets on sale. The catalogue sets cover a variety of themes beyond City and Friends.

The sale starts tomorrow (November 9th) and runs until November 29th. You can view a list of the sets included below, or view the catalogue for yourself here.
