Your Buying Strategy of the Day: Monday July 7th, 2014

So a few days back I mentioned that LBR Stores had some sets on “clearance.” Well that ended and was promptly replaced by several themes being 20% off. That’s phenomenal for in-store prices. The following is a breakdown of the sets that have been reported by JerseyBrickGuy to be on sale. The final cost includes 6% sales tax which is also included in the part out ratio. They have been ranked from best to worst value.

41007 Heartlake Pet Salon 29.99 23.992 25.43 53.71 2.11x
76016 Spider-Helicopter Rescue 44.99 35.992 38.15 79.66 2.09x
41006 Downtown Bakery 29.99 23.992 25.43 51.62 2.03x
79120 T-Rawket Sky Strike 34.99 27.992 29.67 60.1 2.03x
76009 Superman: Black Zero Escape 19.99 15.992 16.95 32.86 1.94x
76002 Superman: Metropolis Showdown 12.99 10.392 11.02 21.21 1.93x
3315 Olivia’s House 74.99 59.992 63.59 121.89 1.92x
41008 Heartlake City Pool 39.99 31.992 33.91 64.55 1.90x

Keep in mind, these prices are completely independent of other stores’ past and present sales. By that, I mean that these prices might be worse than sales we’ve seen before for these sets. I recommend the Turtles sets as they really haven’t gone on sale too much to date. I don’t know if there are any in-store limits, but usually there is a limit of 5 of any SKU. Whether they will limit you to a total number of sale items I am unsure.

Finally, and this one is definitely YMMV. The July store calendar claims that the Turtle Sub (mmm….turtle sub….) gets you 50 bonus VIP points all month long. Could it in fact be 20% off plus ~$2.50 in extra VIP points?
