On Sale: 20% Off At Myer?

Myer Logo Small

If you look at the title of this article, you’ll see something a little bit different – there’s a question mark. We have received a few messages that there is currently 20% off LEGO at Myer.

Unfortunately after scouring the Myer website for the last hour we haven’t  be able to find any specific information about this particular sale. That means we have no idea when this sale will end. We have our fingers crossed that this will run at least until Sunday for those doing some last minute Christmas shopping.

We have checked the online store and the site does appear to be applying 20% off to LEGO products.

If you have any information about this sale let us know in the comments and we will update the article accordingly.
