Spin Those NXT Deals!
Folks, the season for extreme sales are almost upon us. The clogged stores, parking lots, gas stations, and roads...who needs the stress? Lucky for us, the Internet is free from those problems and allows us to shop from the safety of home.
This is my plan. Save some bucks, the stess, and the possibility of following my Wife to every store in town...by using the trusty old WWW to find the gifts I might need for myself...I mean for my family and friends.
So, there are some earlybird sales and things happening. Here is one (since I deleted the RIS sale link):
- MicroCenter Online is offering the NXT 8527 at $199.99 (+5.99 Shipping) USD Here
Several other online stores (such as, Amazon) are offering Free Shipping to save you some bucks and there will indeed be more (possibility better) offerings before this year rolls out. If you spot a good one post it here or drop one of us an email.
But w/ the internet sales you've just posted, I'll likely save myself the hastle and the trip to the LEGO store for what probably would be only 10% off.
Last year, I got our first NXT kit w/ a 20% internet coupon w/ free shipping. I was hoping for the same this year but those coupons were out in September so I likely missed them.
Again, thanks for posting the sales. You saved me some money.
The scratch-off discounts would be great if I had a LEGO Store in my part of the country.
I really thought that these earlybird sales were going to be the high side for the NXT this season.
The MicroCenter $179.99 is nice but it is for In-Store purchases only.
Post them when you see them. The sales are going to be quick.
Hm..could someone buy me, say, a hundred of those kits and bring them over the pond at the next visit in Europe? ;-)
I'm just sayin'.
I was there last year for BF and it was crazy. They may not have the same incredible deals this year but it may not be worth saving the extra $20 if it takes 4 hours to complete the purchase.
I sometimes like to count how many people just leave and drop their stuff on the counter as they go out... very poor customer service at purchase time - they're great on the floor when you have a question.
$219 + shipping.
