Black Friday Sale: 25% Off At David Jones, When You Buy 2 or More

David Jones Logo

It seems that Thursday is Australian retailers prefered day to roll out their Black Friday offerings. It doesn’t make any sense to me either but I’m certainly not complaining about 25% off at David Jones. Of course there is the qualifier of 2 or more items but it’s not particularly difficult to achieve that.

This offer is in-store and online until Monday (11:59 PM AEDT online).

The best part of this offer is that it doesn’t have annoying exclusions. You want to get two UCS Millennium Falcons for 25% off? Go for it. Two Ideas or Creator Expert sets? David Jones isn’t going to stop you. You get the idea.

You can check out their LEGO range here.

Here Are LEGO’s Black Friday Deals

Tomorrow may be Thursday, but it happens to be the day when LEGO is kicking off their Black Friday deals. Yes, even here in Australia.

There are a range of offers taking place from the 22nd to 26th of November – each for one day only.


At 30% off these set prices become competitive with some retail offers, especially when VIP points are factored in. If you want to take advantage of any of these offers I suggest getting in early on the relevant day.

There are also some sets that are being reduced 20%. You can find that range on the promotion page.

LEGO’s Retiring Soon List Features Almost 200 Sets


2018 is almost coming to a close, which mean next year we’ll be getting a heap of new sets. Of course all those new sets means that production of some older sets will have to stop.

The Australian online store has marked 198 sets as retiring soon. It’s an extensive list that covers most of the existing themes. Unfortunately “retiring soon” is a bit of an abstract marker, as LEGO doesn’t specifically state when a set will actually retire. Despite the uncertainty it’s clear that if any of these sets are on your wanted list that you should get them sooner rather than later.

You can see the full list here, or check out the handy table at the end of the article.

I’ve done a bit of digging around to find some options for buying a few of the more expensive sets. You can read that breakdown below.

Based on how quickly the Diagon Alley promotion ended I wouldn’t muck around.
