Your Buying Strategy of the Day: Tuesday April 1st, 2014

Nothing has really changed since yesterday. I scheduled payment on my RedCard and hopefully I’ll be able to order 8 more Quinjets before they sell out.

So I’ve been asked what my strategy will be for Double VIP at LEGO which starts today. I’ll run down what I would buy. These items will be just as good anytime between now and the 15th, but they may be out of stock for parts of that time frame.

70812 Creative Ambush at $39.99, limit 5.

This is the Target exclusive and has yet to go on sale. 10% back is better than 5% off with the RedCard which is the same as 5% back with regular VIP. It’s not much of a discount, but it’s better than nothing.
Part out is $88.79 or 2.22x.

70811 The Flying Flusher at $29.99, limit 5.

This is the Walmart exclusive and has yet to go on sale. 10% back is better than $29.99 at Walmart…ahem, I mean $29.97. I forgot they did us a solid and knocked 2 cents off all of their prices. You could FIND 2 cents on the floors in there!
Anyway, part out is $79.35 or 2.65x.

Finally, LEGO® Mixels™ Yellow Collection at $14.99, limit 5.

These have been on sale here and there, but nothing substantial or renewable. The Yellow ones are the only good ones for part out.
Part out is $37.56 or 2.51x.
And don’t forget, you can get up to 99 of each Mixel, but only 5 of the 3-pack. Also, buying all 3 separate is 2 cents cheaper which could add up if you bought a lot. That’s 12 cents savings if you bought 15 singles instead of 3 combo packs. Whatever! Just get yourself some Double VIP and remember, never redeem VIP during double period. You can redeem it afterwards and you make more when buying at full price than when using VIP dollars.
