New Releases Now Listed At Amazon

Amazon Australia Thumb

Amazon Australia have added listings for a heap of the new June releases. Prices seem pretty good for most of the sets, comparable to Kmart pricing for the most part.

Note that Amazon acts as a marketplace so once the Amazon AU sold item sells out you’ll see listing from other sellers. Check the price and seller before you make a purchase. Prices were accurate at the time I collated the information but Amazon often adjusts stuff.

Also some of these sets are “temporarily out of stock” so will be shipped when they become available.

This article features affiliate links.

Reminder: Check Amazon During Sales

Amazon Australia Thumb

Here is just a friendly reminder with all the sales kicking off this week – Amazon will usually lower their prices to match other sales.

If there is something that you are after it is usually worth checking Amazon. If you have Amazon Prime you should also get quick delivery direct to your door. With the advice to stay at home as much as possible I suggest using online ordering as much as possible.

This link should give you all the Amazon Australia listings. [affiliate link]


Amazon Prime Day Is Today

Amazon Australia Thumb

Today is the first Amazon Prime Day since the launch of Amazon Australia.

If you are a Prime member (or sign up for the 30 day free trial) you will get access to deals for the next day.

I don’t know how good the LEGO deals will be but there seems to be a few that are going to pop up.

The first LEGO offer I can see is the Technic 42063 BMW R 1200 GS Adventure set for $53.99, which is a great price considering the set has a $89.99 RRP. You can grab yours here, but be aware that the deal is currently 41% claimed. This deal ends in 5 hours.

There is also a deal on LEGO Boost launching in 18 minutes.

If you want to keep track of the LEGO deals this link should show the active offers. Keep refreshing during the day for new deals as they pop up.

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

Amazon Australia Thumb

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.
