Target Corrects The Simpsons Minifigures Price

Well that didn’t take long! Following on from our post this morning we have just received the following tweet from Target Australia;

We’re calling this one as a win for LEGO fans everywhere! Now we just need a 20% off sale to make the price even better.

Target Selling The Simpsons Minifigures Above RRP

Target Pay More

If you go to the Target Australia website you will notice that their logo proudly proclaims “Get more. Pay less.”. Unfortunately that isn’t true when it comes to The Simpsons LEGO Minifigures.

Target Australia is selling these minifigures for $6 each, which is $1 more than the Australian RRP (based on the http://shop.lego.com/en-AU/LEGO-Minifigures-The-Simpsons-Series-71005 price). Sure, $1 doesn’t make a lot of difference in the scheme of things, but at Bricking Around we are all about LEGO fans getting the best price. It’s also possible that this could be the start of a worrying trend where in-demand products are sold at higher prices.

We know that our readers are savvy shoppers. Unfortunately there are LEGO fans out their that won’t know any better. That’s why we are asking everybody to get involved.

Here is what you can do:

  • Share this story with as many people as you can. The more people that know the better. We need to send a message to Target that inflated prices are not something Australian consumers will stand for. Let’s stop the problem before they apply the same thing to bigger sets.
  • Buy elsewhere. Outer Rim has the minifigures for $3.99 each. Big W, Kmart, David Jones, Myer and Toys ‘R’ Us are all selling these for RRP of $4.99. Shopforme has them for $5.
  • Price match in store. If Target is your closest store then don’t be afraid to ask for a fair price. Price matching is at the discretion of the store itself and there is no official Target policy, so this may not work for everybody.
  • Tell Target you aren’t happy with their pricing. We have included various contact methods below. If enough people tell them then maybe we can get them to change their price.

We know that RRP only means Recommended Retail Price, and that Target can charge what they like. We still think that for a product that is widely available charging above RRP is a bit unfair.

On Sale: 20% Off Toys At Target

Target 20 Percent Off April 2014

Right on schedule, another School Holiday/Easter toy sale appears.

Target is currently offering 20% off all toys, which of course includes LEGO. The sale is on now (April 10, 2014) and unlike most of their 20% off sales, is running for two weeks (until April 23, 2014).

There are a few sets specifically listed in the catalogue, but they are all just the regular 20% off, with the exception of 31025 Creator Mountain Hut. The Mountain Hut is featured for just $45, which is a $14 or 23% saving over their standard price.

Looks like a new 20% off sale is about to kick off. From the 13th to the 26th of March Target is offering 20% off all toys, including LEGO.

These sales are usually only on for a single week, so a two week long sale is a bit of a treat.

If you are planning on taking advantage of this sale, don’t forget that you can get a free kids movie ticket when you spend $60 or more on LEGO.

On Sale: New Offers At Target

Target 25 Percent Off Online B2G1F

Target is running another sale on Toys, but this one is a little bit different – It’s actually two different sales.

The first offer is a straight 25% off all toys online.
You can check out all of the available LEGO here 

The second offer is 3 For 2 (buy two sets, get a third for free). This offer is only available in store.

Both of these sales end Wednesday 29 January.

 

There have also been reports that the 3 for 2 offer applies on top of the existing 20% off sale, this potentially means you can get 3 sets for the price of two discounted sets. That’s a pretty good deal.

Toys R Us

ToysRUS LEGO City Trucks
First up we have a range of LEGO City trucks for $19.99 (VIP Club Price). These sets are pretty easy to find for $20, so not a huge saving there.

ToysRUS Selected LEGO City
There are also some other LEGO City sets reduced by 30%. There are some decent prices in this selection.

ToysRUS Selected LEGO Creator
Some good deals can also be found on Creator sets. The Treehouse and Aviation Adventure sets are particularly well priced.

ToysRUS Selected LEGO Chima
Some minor savings to be had on Chima too.

ToysRUS LEGO Castle
The newest Castle range is on sale for 20% off. While 20% is a good saving, these sets can probably be found cheaper elsewhere.

Target

Target 20 Off Toys

Target is keeping it simple with 20% off all toys, which obviously includes LEGO. 20% off is pretty common these days, but it is still a good pre-Christmas offer.

Ninjago 2014 Sets Spotted At Australian Target Store

Ninjago 2014 At Target

If you have been eagerly awaiting the return of the Ninjago range in 2014 it looks like Christmas has come early.

Five of the new sets were just spotted by Bricking Around at a QLD Target store. They were literally still being put on the shelves when they were spotted but we took the time to check the prices of each, and luckily they were already in the system.

The best part of this news is that Target currently has 20% off LEGO. Not only are 2014 sets available now, they are already discounted. Your local store may not have stock yet, so it might not be a bad idea to call first. These were spotted at the Forest Lake QLD store, and there were plenty of each.
