On Sale: 20% Off All LEGO At Target

Target 20 Percent Off October 2014

We were worried that as the School Holiday sales started to come to a close we would be left paying full price for LEGO. Luckily Target are on the case, and for two weeks they are offering a flat 20% off all LEGO sets.

The sale runs from Thursday October 9th 2014 until Wednesday October 22nd.

We always love sales that apply to the full range of LEGO sets. The series 12 minifigures will hopefully appear in stores during this sale.

There are also a few sets featured with a slightly higher discount

  • 60058 SUV with Watercraft, $20, Save $10 (33% discount)
  • 60056 Tow Truck, $20, Save $10 (33% discount)
  • 42027 Desert Racer, $23, Save $7 (23% discount)
  • 42026 Black Champion Racer, $23, Save $7 (23% discount)
  • 42022 Hot Rod, $30, Save $10 (25% discount)
  • 41034 Friends Summer Caravan, $30, Save $9 (23% discount)

Bricktober Coming To Toys R Us This October

Bricktober Logo

We had read some reports about a Bricktober event taking place at Toys R Us stores in the US, and we crossed our fingers and hoped that Australians would get something similar.

The latest Toys R Us catalogue has the answers – Australian LEGO fans will have a chance to grab one of four exclusive Mini Modular sets when they spend $100 on LEGO. These sets appear to be a different scale to the 10230 Mini Modulars set, but still look great. We have included larger images of the four sets at the end of this article.

Toys R Us Bricktober Sets 2014

From the terms and conditions it appears that the offer is one set per $100 spend. The sets are also given a retail price of $14.99 but the terms do not make it clear if they can be purchased separately or not. We have asked Toys R Us for clarification.

UPDATE

We received a response from Toys R Us about availability;

The Bonus Lego Building Sets will be available to purchase separately. Unfortunately these are not currently available online, only in store.These retail for $14.99 each.

The catalogue runs from Wednesday October 1st – Tuesday 14th October. Check out the full catalogue here.

There are also a few different sets on sale. It’s not the largest sale, but it should certainly help get you to that $100 threshold.

On Sale: 20% Off LEGO At David Jones Until October 6

David Jones 20pc Off Sept 2014

It looks like David Jones has decided not to miss out on the school holiday sales action.

From now (25th September 2014) until October 6th David Jones are offering a flat 20% off LEGO.

Please note that there is some conflicting information on the David Jones website. The front page says that this sale excludes LEGO Star Wars, but there is no mention of that on the offer page;

Also save 20% on full-priced toys from LEGO, MONSTER HIGH, THOMAS & FRIENDS, DISCOVERY KIDS, V-TECH and STAR WARS. Offer ends 06/10/14.

The online store is showing the discounted price for Star Wars sets.

Thanks to our reader YT for letting us know about this sale.

All The September Deals Compared

LEGO In Store

With so many different sales starting this week we thought it would be helpful to compare the various deals on offer.

We have combined everything that was featured in the catalogues into a single list, sorted by set number. From this list you should be able to determine who has the best price for a particular set.

There are also a few things to take into consideration before looking through the data

  • Myer has 20% off all LEGO, so if a set you want is listed with a discount lower than 20% you may want to check the Myer price.
  • Target has 20% off City and Star Wars, so if a set in either theme is listed with a discount lower than 20% you may want to check the Target price.
  • Kmart and Big W discounts less than 20% may still be cheaper than Target or Myer, as they have slightly lower regular prices.
  • The Kmart and Big W sales are for selected sets only, not a broad percentage off sale.

Check out the table below

On Sale: 20% Off Star Wars & City Sets At Target

Target Logo 2014

It looks like this is the last of our school holiday sales, and unfortunately it’s not quite as good as some of the others.

From Thursday 18th September 2014 until Wednesday October 1st Target are offering 20% off Star Wars and City sets.

There are also two Friends sets listed at a discount in the catalogue, but the 20% does not appear to apply to that theme more broadly.

On Sale: Kmart School Holiday Sale On Selected Sets

We haven’t seen a heap of toy sales recently, and now it looks like we know why; retailers have been waiting for the school holidays to capitalise on all those bored kids.

First up in our array of September School Holiday sales is Kmart. From Thursday September 18th 2014 until Wednesday 1st October they are offering discounts on a range of sets. This isn’t a flat percentage off sale, so we have compiled a list of the various discounts below.

On Sale: Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price At Toys R Us

Toys R Us B1G1HP

It would seem that Toys R Us just love having LEGO sales. With their 20% Off Selected Sets sale wrapping up yesterday, we were starting to worry that LEGO fans were going to have to pay full price.

Luckily, Toys R Us have decided that the best follow-up to a LEGO sale is an even better LEGO sale.

From Wednesday 3rd September 2014 until Tuesday 16th Toys R Us are doing Buy 1, Get 1 Half Price on selected themes. That works out at 25% off for two identically priced items.

Themes included in the sale are

  • Technic
  • TMNT
  • Chima
  • City
  • Friends
  • Creator

Shoppers are also allowed to mix and match across themes. For example you can get 50% off a Creator set when you buy a Friends set. Half price item must be of equal or lesser value.

You can check out the catalogue here, or browse the sale online here

On Sale: Catch of The Day LEGO Deals This Monday

Catch Of The Day LEGO September 2014

We don’t have a lot of information on this one but we wanted to share it before the sale kicks off.

This Monday (1st September 2014) from 12PM AEST Catch of The Day will be offering selected LEGO products on sale.

Catch of The Day sales can disappear pretty quickly if they are well priced. Be sure to check the prices before making any purchases. If the set is new and common you should be able to get it elsewhere for 20% at other times of the year. If the preview image is any indication, there could be some interesting items.

Update

The sale is now live, but the few good deals appear to have already been snapped up within the 90 minutes. Generally the sale is disappointing, with most sets under 15% off. When you add in postage those discounts are quickly made redundant.

Here are a few sets that may still be worth considering, as they have more than 25% discount.

The Millennium Falcon was also a good price, but has now sold out.

There are also the following older sets, which are listed as Retired on the Australian online store.

  • LEGO® Legends of Chima Cragger’s Command Ship $99.99
  • LEGO® Star Wars The Malevolence Set $159.00
  • LEGO® Ninjago Battle Storage Case $17.95
  • LEGO® Legends of Chima: Nest Dive $14.95
  • LEGO® Legends of Chima: Tower Target $14.95
  • LEGO® Summer Riding Camp $139.99

You can find those sets listed here http://www.catchoftheday.com.au/event/41107/
