Now that the Christmas shopping season is over, it is time for stores to get rid of their leftover inventory and free up shelf-space for items coming in the new year. LEGO fans are especially lucky in this regard because LEGO always comes out with a huge range of new LEGO sets in January – which of course stores want to carry – so they have to be very aggressive with their pricing to clear out the shelves. Thus, this is an excellent time to pick up LEGO sets for yourself for a fraction of the regular price. This is also the time when LEGO fans who operate a BrickLink or eBay store to go bargain-hunting to refill their inventory. So let’s talk about where are the best places to look, and compare notes on what we find! 🙂
One of the obvious places to find after Christmas LEGO sales is of course at official LEGO stores as well as the Online LEGO Shop. If you have a LEGO store near you I would highly recommend stopping by as you can find some real bargains. If not, check out the Sales & Deals section of the Online LEGO Shop. LEGO’s after Christmas sale is usually 20% off, and as much as 50% off on some items. Better deals usually go extremely fast, so take a look as soon as possible at the Sales & Deals section of the Online LEGO Shop. Also, remember that some of the 2015 LEGO sets are already available, so if you are struggling to meet the minimum for free shipping, you might want to check those as well at the What’s New section of the Online LEGO Shop.
The next best place to look for LEGO sales is at local big-box stores that regularly carry LEGO. I highly recommend checking at Wal-Mart, Target and K-Mart. You can also check Toys’R’Us, although they are not known for having great deals after Christmas. Keep in mind that many times labels on the boxes and prices on the shelves will not be adjusted right away due to the after Christmas chaos, but you can take up the boxes to one of those price-checking stations to get the most current price. It is a bit inconvenient, but the good thing about it is that nobody else will know that LEGO is on sale so you don’t have to fight the competition. It’s all yours for the picking. 🙄
Online another place you can check is the Amazon LEGO Store. In general Amazon’s prices are the best, and with free shipping over $35 and no tax to most states even a smallish deal can save you a bundle. Here is the link: Amazon LEGO Store
Those are the places I would check for after Christmas LEGO sales. If you find any good deals please report back to the rest of us. Members of the online LEGO community have been excellent at supporting each other in previous years. And it’s also really fun. I will update this page in the comment section as myself and others are finding LEGO sets on sale, and you can do the same. So grab your shopping gear and let’s go for the big hunt! 😉
