Super secret LEGO deals on Amazon!

If you read my previous post on the Black Friday/Cyber Monday LEGO Sales you know where to find the best LEGO deals already. However if you are still looking for more LEGO deals, here is another one: the Amazon Lightning Deals!

The Amazon Lightning Deals are a special holiday promotion, and although they include not only LEGO sets, some of the best LEGO deals can be found here! (20%-30% discount is what I have seen so far on some pretty sweet LEGO sets.) Amazon will continue running Lightning Deals for at least this week (they call this the “Cyber Monday Deals Week”), so you can still take advantage of the excellent prices!

There is a catch though; getting those LEGO deals require some work on your part. Deals included are only available for a short period of time (a couple of hours max) and there is a limited quantity of each item listed; once they are gone, they are gone. Also, you need to finish your purchase within 15 minutes after you choose an item, otherwise it will go to the next person in line. Read the Lightning Deals rules here: Amazon Lightning Deals Overview.

From my experience I can tell you that deals on LEGO sets are gone in around 30 minutes, so you need to jump on them fast. I recommend checking the Lightning Deals page every morning to see what deals are coming up for the day. The description is going to be a bit vague (they don’t specifically say what the item is until the listing starts), but if you are familiar with LEGO sets, you should recognize them. Here is how the Amazon Lightning Deals page looks like with some LEGO deals (click on the image for a larger view):

As you see there are two upcoming LEGO deals here: #4194 LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Whitecap Bay #4194 LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Whitecap Bay and #8679 LEGO Cars Tokyo International Circuit.

Once you see there are some LEGO deals you want to take advantage of, make a note of the time the listing starts and come back to the Lightning Deals page at that time. I have seen that LEGO sets are usually offered in batches. Meaning there will be 2 or 4 in a row on a particular day, so check them all out. Here is another screen-shot with a LEGO deal already open and another one starting in 30 minutes (click on the image for a larger view):

As you can see at the time of this screen-shot 49% of the #7962 LEGO Star Wars Anakin’s & Sebulba’s Podracers set has already been claimed, and there is 1 hour and 30 minutes left till the end of the deal. Also notice that the set is 28% off the regular price! (The second set, #4183 LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean The Mill had a %25 discount once the listing started.)

Also, please note that these deals are not only for LEGO sets, they are available in all Amazon categories, so if you are looking for some bargains this is a good place to check. Personally, I have the page bookmarked and I check every morning. 😉
