January Set Price Battle: Who’s Got The Cheapest Everyday Prices

January 2018 Price Battle

While certain retailers price their LEGO sets at RRP, there are others that try and compete with lower everyday prices. Those cheaper prices can often be better than 20% off the regular price.

I have looked around at the three majors who promote themselves as having low everyday prices; Target, Big W and Kmart. I went through the “new” category on their websites and compiled a detailed list of all the January release sets and how much they are charging. For Big W, who have a small sale on, I looked at the regular price not the sale price.

You can find all of the listings for yourself here: Kmart, Big W and Target.

Looking at the numbers it seems that Kmart is the winner with almost all of their prices lower or on par with Big W. Big W generally isn’t too far off with their pricing. Target is a clear last with a smaller online listing and the sets that are listed almost all higher than Kmart and/or Big W.

Obviously sales are going to affect these numbers, but it’s worth saving this list to check when you see a 20% off sale at Myer/David Jones/Toys R Us, as the set you want could still be cheaper elsewhere.

Here is the important information, the list with the best price for each set. If you scroll right down to the end of the article there is also a full list of prices rather than just the best ones.

    Thanks for doing this, it’ll come in handy.

  3. Tim says:

    Don’t forget that the big department stores generally price match. If you want multiple sets (or don’t have the store near you) just go to the one store and ask for a price match. This list is great to identify which store to price match against.
