On Sale: 20% Off At eBay For Black Friday

eBay 200

Black Friday in Australia is a confusing mess of offers that seemingly start at random some time in November. Still – cheaper LEGO!

eBay is one retailer getting in early with their offer. They have a new discount code now live that will give you 20% off a range of items.

It’s a bit of a crapshoot as to what is included in this one but this link should give you a decent selection of LEGO. [affiliate link]

To get your discount enter the code PITCH20 at checkout. The offer ends at 11:59 PM (AEDT) on December 2nd. Maximum discount is $300 per transaction. Multiple items may be purchased in five transactions (up to a maximum of 10 items per transaction).

As always with a broad eBay sale like this check the listing price before discount to make sure you aren’t being ripped off.

Xtra Xmas Accessories: Cute, A Little Bit Hemisphere-ist

LEGO Xtra is a bit of a dark horse of a LEGO theme – your first instinct might be to view the theme only as something to buy to reach a free shipping or GWP threshold but there are actually some interesting combination of parts available in these cheap polybags.

For 2019 LEGO have released a new Christmas themed Xtra set in 40368. Here in Australia the set will set you back $6.99. For that you get 32 elements. Unfortunately, as of now you can only find this at the LEGO Certified Stores around the country.

The set comprises of single elements as well as a few mini-builds.

The single elements include two gold fences, a 6 point ice crystal star thing, beanie, snow shoes, bag, Christmas tree and Husky dog. There is also a white leaf element that doesn’t really count as a build because the instructions just say to add two studs on top.

The mini builds that are included are a cute snowman, candy cane pole with wreath and two presents.

Overall I think it’s a good mix for adding extra detail to your Christmas builds. Which I guess is the point.

As is common with pretty much every Christmas related toy this set is very focused on the whole Northern Hemisphere “white Christmas” thing. The closest I’ve ever seen to a snowman at Christmas is when you buy two bags of ice from the servo and you put one on top of the other.

If you are planning an Australian Christmas MOC there’s probably not going to be much use for snow shoes, a beanie or snowy foliage. Maybe that’s why it’s not available in the Australian online store?

If you are open to a bit of Northern Hemisphere cultural appropriation in your LEGO Christmas then I’d suggest this is a good buy. Assuming you can find it.

On Sale: 20% Off At David Jones

David Jones Logo

David Jones is joining in the Click Frenzy sales with a pretty standard offer for them – 20% off with no exclusions.

This probably isn’t as good as the Big W discount for most regular sets but David Jones does have exclusives that you won’t find everywhere, like the Ideas Treehouse.

As usual for David Jones you won’t see the discount until an item is in your cart.

The sale ends 11:59 PM AEDT on November 13th.

You can find David Jones’ LEGO range here.

On Sale: 20% Off At Big W

Big W 2017 Logo

If you don’t already have an alarm set for tomorrow morning you might want to do so now. As part of Click Frenzy’s online event Big W will be offering 20% off LEGO from 7am AEDT tomorrow morning.

The sale runs from November 12th to November 13th (Midnight AEDT).

You can find Big W’s Click Frenzy landing page here.

This is an online only offer.

On Sale: 11% Off At eBay

eBay 200

Today is “Single’s Day” a made up holiday designed seemingly just to sell stuff (kind of like most holidays). What they don’t tell you though is that Single’s Day is poorly regulated/enforced and you can take advantage of the deals even if you aren’t single. They never check!

To get in on the Single’s Day action eBay is offering 11% off a range of items. I think it’s site-wide but it doesn’t really say that clearly.

To get your discount you’ll need to spend over $120 and enter the code PINCH11 at checkout.

This offer is likely to be for today only.

You can find eBay’s LEGO portal here. [affiliate link]

On Sale: 20% Off City & Friends At Target

Target has a new catalogue out with discounts on two of LEGO’s biggest sellers – City and Friends.

You’ll get 20% off all sets across those two themes. With Target’s regular pricing being a little below these prices actually work out a bit below 20% off for most sets.

The LEGO City sets can be found here, and the Friends range here.

They are also offering $50 off the price of the new Millennium Falcon 75257.

target-offers-november-2019

These offers end November 27th.

On Sale: 20% Off At Myer

Myer Super Weekend March 2015

It’s another super weekend at Myer.

On offer once again is 20% off LEGO with the usual exclusions (Creator Expert, Ideas and Hogwarts Castle).

You can check out Myer’s LEGO range here. [affiliate link]

This offer ends at 11:59 PM AEDT on Sunday (November 10th).

While this offer might not be the best one added incentive is that Myer is giving away a trip to LEGOLAND Malaysia. To go in the draw you need to spend over $75 on LEGO. More details here.
