New Customers Can Get $20 Off At Amazon Australia

Amazon Australia Thumb

I just managed to get myself a great deal and wanted to share the details with you.

Thanks to a tip from a friend I managed to get a 31084 Pirate Roller Coaster for $69 delivered.

How? Amazon has lowered the price of the set to match Kmart at $89, and new customers can get a $20 credit by using the code AMAZON20.

The code will only work if you spend more than $79 and haven’t purchased from Amazon before. If you have been thinking about trying them out then $20 is a good incentive.

It certainly seems that Amazon is starting to be a bit more aggressive with pricing, for example lowering prices to match other retailers. I know I’ll be checking them out more often from now. They have good prices on 42078 Mack Anthem and 17101 Boost Creative Toolbox at the moment.

You can see the full range sold by Amazon Australia here.

Amazon Australia Officially Launches

The media said that Amazon Australia would launch by Black Friday but that came and went without any word from Amazon. Instead they have opted for the momentous occasion of Tuesday December 5th to launch the Australian site.

So now that it has launched, are the prices amazing? Has it instantly killed local LEGO retail trade? The answer to both is no. If I had to summarise the Amazon.com.au for LEGO fans in one word it would be “Okay”. It’s not amazing but it’s also not terrible.

Really the only factor that people really care about is price. There are two sides to this – Listings from Amazon themselves all seem to be around the 20% off mark, the sort of prices you can either find on sale at Myer, Toys R Us and David Jones or often the regular shelf prices at Kmart, Big W and even Target.

I often tell people that 20% off RRP should be the price you aim to pay, if not better and Amazon does have some better prices – For example the LEGO BB-8 set for $99 is a good deal at around 37% off RRP.
