Your Buying Strategy of the Day: Friday January 10th, 2014

Today I have a rough rundown of what can be expected at Target. It appears that all Targets are dropping their prices at different rates. You might see these prices, you might see higher prices, or you might see lower prices. These are the lowest I have seen or have been reported to me. There are more sets that are on clearance and I will update this list accordingly once I’ve verified more prices in-store. If you are seeing something that I am not, feel free to leave a comment or email me. Thursday is still the day of the markdown and it doesn’t look like any of these prices end in “4” so there are still markdowns to be seen. Last year the clearance took place mainly in February, and I remember a lot of advent calendars being in the mix. I haven’t seen any of them this year yet.

Most of the other sets are on clearance too but I don’t have the prices.

44007 OGRUM $9.08 from $12.99, 30% off, $20.40 part out or 2.25x

So if you haven’t been to Target, perhaps you can put together a game plan with this list and make your move next Thursday or even some time this weekend.
I did put together half of an order from Toys R Us online. Their “spend $60, save $15” sale ends on Saturday and it applies to some items you might not expect. Like I already told you, you can get the TRU exclusive Hobbit Barrel Escape for $27.99 each before this discount with free store pickup. http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=17058996&cp=2255956.2273442.2255962.3696486.31151746&parentPage=family
What you can also get with this discount is The Lone Ranger Cavalry Builder Set http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=20000626&cp=2255956.2273442.2255962.3696486.31151746&parentPage=family on sale for $10.99 before discount. There is a limit of 2, but they will ship it to you. Finally, no order is complete without the Lake-town Guard polybag http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=28737556&cp=2255956.2273442.2255962.3696486.31151746&parentPage=family which is $4.99 with a limit of 4. All of these items stack with the $15 off, however 2 Cavalry sets and 4 polybags will not get you neither free shipping nor $15 off. You’ll need to add more to your order. It doesn’t really matter what you add at this point, but you need to get $20 more in your cart. Nothing else jumped out at me, but two of this new Movie set http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=29927836&skuid=17631059 which hasn’t been marked up yet will do the trick. The set has a pending inventory still, but every LEGO Movie set with an approved inventory so far has a part out value of more than double MSRP.
