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.

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/

On Sale: $10 Off For Every $50 Spent At Myer

Myer logo

As part of their Myer One 10th Birthday celebrations Myer are offering $10 off for every $50 spent on toys.

This sale runs from Thursday 28th August 2014 until Saturday 30th and you will need to be a Myer One member to take advantage of the offer. If you aren’t already a member you can join online. If you have an iPhone or Android device you can download the Myer One app which can be scanned in store.

This sale is not quite as straight forward as a regular 20% off. The offer is for $10 off for every $50 you spend, so a $89 set would only go down to $79. To take full advantage of the sale you may want to try and spend a multiple of $50.

More information on the sale can be found here and information about joining Myer One, and the Myer One apps can be found at https://www.myerone.com.au/

On Sale: 20% Off Selected Sets At Toys R Us

Toys R Us Logo Small

We almost missed this sale which is tucked away at the back of the latest Toys R Us catalogue (because it’s labelled as a Babies R Us catalogue). Luckily we spotted the details of the sale on the Toys R Us website and tracked it down.

From Wednesday 20th August until Tuesday 2nd September 2014 you can get selected sets for 20% off the regular price.

The included sets are mostly City but there are also Duplo and Star Wars sets on sale, including the Microfighters sets

2014 Toy Sales: Target Sale Extended Until Sunday

The Target Toy Sale was supposed to be coming to a close on Friday the 8th of August, however it is now extended until Sunday 10th of August.

Target Toy Sale 2014 Extended

A few extra days won’t make a huge difference, but it’s nice to have some more time to contemplate those larger sets.

If you are planning on taking advantage of the extension don’t forget to check out our overview of the sale.

On Sale: Toys R Us Friends & Family Sale – Save 20%

From Friday 1st August until Sunday 3rd August Toys R Us are having a Friends & Family sale with 20% off all full priced items. Here’s hoping that some of August release products appear on shelves for this one.

Amazon Sale: Buy One, Get One 40% Off

Amazon Logo

It looks like the toy sale mania has spread to the US. Amazon have just kicked off a Buy 1, Get 1 40% Off sale on a range of products including a range of LEGO. It’s not exactly the broadest range, but there are still some decent sets included in the offer. Of particular note is the new Guardians Of The Galaxy sets. These aren’t released in Australia until August, so it is very surprising to see such new sets included in a sale. Also included is the X-Men vs Sentinel set that we know people were interested in. That set is not in the Australian retail catalogue, so we don’t know when that will be showing up here.

Click here to view the offer – Buy One, Get One 40% Off

This is a limited sale, and we aren’t sure exactly when it will end.

We generally try and run the numbers on all of the Amazon offers that we post here, but with such a variety of sets available it is going to be impossible for us to check every combination. We suggest that before you hit that final confirmation button you have a quick look at the total in Australian dollars and compare that to the Australian retail price (which you can find here). With 20% off being fairly common in Australia, we suggest that as your baseline for saving money.

2014 Toy Sales: All The Deals From Target

logo-target-toy-sale

As the other stores raise their prices back up, Target are just showing up to the 2014 Toy Sale party. The delay has certainly raised some expectations; especially with the sale being marketed as ”The Greatest Toy Sale on Earth”

Has Target pulled off a shock late win in the battle for our LEGO budgets? The main discount on offer is

20% Off LEGO

which is fairly common, and doesn’t exactly scream ‘greatest toy sale on Earth’. The Ewok Village and R2-D2 sets are good exclusives, and they are going to be popular. There are also a few sets with higher discounts.

For comparison we have had a look at the Amazon price for the Ewok Village. Based on standard shipping to our Brisbane address the Amazon price works out to be $301.98 AU. For a only a few dollars difference we suggest getting this from Target, but if stock runs out you do have other options that won’t cost you more. Here is the Amazon link for anybody interested: LEGO Star Wars 10236 Ewok Village

The sale runs from next Wednesday 23rd July until Wednesday 8th August. Starts online this Friday 18th July 2014.
