Your Buying Strategy of the Day: Monday February 24th, 2014

First, a correction from yesterday. TRU is not continuing last week’s sale of BOGO 50% off various sets. Instead, they are having a 15% off your regularly priced purchase sale when you use the coupon code SALE15 online. They also removed all of the new Chima, Star Wars, & Super Heroes sets from their site. So in other words, don’t bother with TRU this week.

This one is a serious YMMV sale, but I’ve personally seen this work near me. Walmart is having a “take an additional 30% off clearance items” sale in their stores. So any LEGO that was in the clearance section is now even cheaper. The curious thing about this sale is that the red-tagged $##.97 sets which are 2 cents below MSRP still count as clearance for this sale. So that’s 30% off MSRP or better. I personally picked up one of the LEGO Movie sets for 30% off just because it was tagged $29.97 in red. Crazy. Not sure if it will work anywhere else but it is worth checking out.

Kmart is supposedly also having a similar sale in which clearance items are further discounted. I haven’t been to a Kmart in a while but the last time I was there, the only LEGO in clearance were some Speedorz and some Friends animal bags. If you can find sets on sale there, great, but the Kmarts near me always seem like they are about a month away from no longer carrying LEGO, 2 months away from no longer having a toy section, and 3 months away from closing up shop overnight. Basically, they aren’t worth checking on a regular basis.

Finally, if you must have something, this set has been on sale for a while but I always passed over it.
70706 Crater Creeper is $10.99 from $19.99.
The part out value is $33.39 or 3.04x so I guess it could be worth picking up. There’s a current limit of 30 on Amazon with free shipping when you buy as few as 4 copies. So they aren’t going anywhere. If you are looking for something with a great part out value and an easily obtained high quantity, this is your set.
