Your Buying Strategy of the Day: Sunday January 5th, 2014

First up, we have 3 sets that Kmart has put on an about 20% off sale. (17%-21%) The good news? These are all brand new sets. The bad news? None of them have inventories yet on BrickLink. It appears that Kmart is taking the sneaky approach and marking up their “regular prices.” It’s not a bad thing because those inflated prices are never actually charged, but they create an artificial 25% off sale when in fact the prices are around 20% off. It’s as if they are price matching TRU normal prices before having a sale. Very sneaky, sis.

60058 SUV with Watercraft
http://www.kmart.com/lego-city-great-vehicles-suv-with-watercraft/p-004W004700281002P?prdNo=6&blockNo=6&blockType=G6
has the best discount at $15.99 down from $19.99, but as a City set, we can assume the part out value will be low.

70721 Kai Fighter
http://www.kmart.com/lego-ninjago-kai-fighter/p-004W004700345002P?prdNo=17&blockNo=17&blockType=G17
is down to $16.24 from $19.99 and has some new elements in red along with two minifigures.

70723 Thunder Raider
http://www.kmart.com/lego-ninjago-thunder-raider/p-004W004700346002P?prdNo=20&blockNo=20&blockType=G20
is down to $24.96 from $29.99 and contains three minifigures along with some tank treads.

So if you are up for a gamble and want to have these sets ready as soon as the inventory is, this is your chance to get them with free shipping. The maximum quantity of each is 5.

Toys R Us has a “Spend $60, Save $15” which I’m not sure if it works in-store also, but is definitely online. That’s 25% off but excludes Movie sets, Mindstorms, & Hard-to-Find. So I loaded a cart with polybags and there was no mention of the discount. So it looks like it will be worthless to use this discount.
