What’s Up With Big W’s Batmobile Pricing?

The latest Big W catalogue features the App-Controlled Batmobile on sale for $119. It’s not an amazing discount but it’s not terrible either. What is a little confusing though is that Big W are advertising this as a $30 discount, which would put the regular price at $149. The RRP of that set is only $139.99.

A recommended retail price is just that – a recommendation. There is nothing that forces Big W to sell the set at that price. But (with the exception of sale events) Big W has always sold the set for $139.

This catalogue shot from August shows the $139 regular price

I considered that maybe the advertised $30 discount was a typo, but according to a Google cache of the product page from November 11th 2018 the price was $149.

It certainly seems that Big W increased the price of the set so they could advertise a bigger discount.

On Sale: Selected Sets Reduced At Big W

Big W 2017 Logo

Big W has a new pre-Christmas catalogue out with a heap of toys included. There are some LEGO deals among the pages but it’s not the most extensive list.

You can find a list of the sale sets at the end of the article – I’ve only included the ones that are actually on sale, as there are some sets in the catalogue that aren’t actually on sale.

This sale runs from today (November 15th) until November 28th. You can check out the catalogue for yourself here.

Click Frenzy 2018 Deals

After not being able to access the site all day I’m a little late in getting these deals posted, but here are the LEGO related Click Frenzy deals.

Myer – 25% off LEGO

Myer’s offer is an impressive 25% off toys, including LEGO. Unfortunately the usual exclusions seem to apply. All up there are around 175 sets included in the sale. I can’t find a set end time for this offer.

You can view their full listing here.

Big W – 20% off LEGO

Big W is offering 20% off their regular price of LEGO. With prices typically already lower than RRP this is a good option. This sale runs until 7PM AEDT on November 14th.

You can find the sets included here.

David Jones – 20% off LEGO

The percentage may not be as high as Myer but David Jones is offering 20% off LEGO with no obvious exclusions. The broader range of sets included makes this a tempting offer.

You can view their LEGO range here.

This offer ends at 11:59 PM AEDT, so get in quick.

eBay – 10% off (for eBay Plus members)

eBay’s offer is terrible if you aren’t a paying eBay Plus member. Even if you are it’s nothing remarkable. There is a minimum spend of $120 to qualify for this offer. You’ll need to enter the code PFRENZY at checkout to get your discount. This offer ends 11:59 PM AEDT on November 14th.

You can find eBay’s LEGO portal here.

If you find any other deals let me know.

Sorry again that this is late. I tried to keep people informed on Facebook where possible.

Thanks to everybody that sent me details about offers.

On Sale: Selected Sets Reduced At Big W

Big W 2017 Logo

Father’s Day always throws up a few discounts – sets that the retailers think are blokey enough to feature in their catalogue. Our first example is these few sets that Big W are offering at a discount.

Overall it’s a pretty limited selection but I know a lot of people are keen on both the UCS Y-Wing and the App Controlled Batmobile.

The sale kicks off tomorrow (August 23rd) and runs until September 5th.
