LEGO Spend $159 and Get a Free Mini Gingerbread House @ LEGO.com

720

The mini gingerbread house normally cost around 50 Aud and it is pretty hard to get, free shipping +99 dollars, I just bought the creator expert gingerbread house (hardly ever on discount anyways), you get VIP points (around 5% money value to use for your next purchase) + the mini gingerbread house, seems to be a fair deal. Cheers.

      After crocodile loco as well and has been oos since day one except the first couple of hours, they will get more in when they can unfortunately with shipping very slow atm could be anytime. And dont feed the ebay overpriced resellers..

        It's strange…always in stock at the official Lego stores. Annoying, but had to march down to the Lego store to pick Up an exclusive the other day which was always OOS online

    you often see people on Gumtree/Facebook that have a heap of brand new sets for sale for under rrp… where do they get them from? if you're a lego member, do you get some sort of discount depending on how much you've previously bought?

      Not sure … but one time we found some suspiciously cheap Lego sets on Gumtree, and met the seller in a car park at a shopping centre. She came out with it, still wearing her Big W uniform, and happily told us she was a manager there.

      Uh huh.

      Cash exchanged and we got the hell outta dodge.

        -25% off sale price
        - 5% staff discount = 28.75% off
        - 5% wish = 32.31% off..

        Sells to you at 30% off RRP and makes a few bucks?

        Probably in breach of employee benefits T&C, but plausibly not illegal behaviour?

      Don't you see those ACA clips of people brazenly walking out with a trolley full of LEGO .
      You buy with no receipts if stolen Police will seize it .

        So lesson is, if you hear a knock at the door quickly flush your cheap lego down the toilet before the fuzz get it 🤪

      To my knowledge, there is no standard discount for being a LEGO member but you can cash out "points" you earn on purchases at the LEGO store or via the LEGO website. It's possible that some astute LEGO buyers may be turning a profit by purchasing sets using their points and flipping them online but I suspect there's an extremely limited number of people that have the funds and knowledge to do so making this an unlikely cause of the sets you're seeing online.

      That said, I have a few theories about what might be happening here. The one I'm convinced is most likely is that people who work in retail (Kmart, Target, Myer, etc.) purchase LEGO using some kind of staff discount knowing they can resell it on Facebook Marketplace, Gumtree, eBay, etc. with a higher margin (but, possibly, still below list price at a major store).

      I also suspect that some of the stock has "fallen off the back of a truck" so to speak. Selling sets under those circumstances means any kind of money is profit which is why you see some great sets for prices that seem too good to be true.

      Further to that, I suspect that some people are converting other scams/illegal activity into cash. For example, use stolen credit card to purchase gift cards > use gift cards to purchase high value items that are easy to liquidate (i.e. LEGO) > sell stock on Facebook Marketplace, Gumtree, eBay, etc. to convert to cash.

      if your new to lego, you wouldnt know that pretty much ALL Lego sets (unless Lego.com exclusive) precovid where being sold under RRP from the likes of big w, kmart, target, ebay stores etc

      I would never buy ANY lego precovid unless it was at least 30-40% off. and trust me, i bought quite a bit at that price (and still do quite frankly)

      There are supply issues now. so unless you are in lockdown and want to build right now, please do not buy sets that were released in 2020 off sellers for RRP or over. just wait until supply catches up

    •  

      I dont see many under the cost and if they are the shipping is bumped to make up the normal overpriced value.

    •  

      I have been trying to think how this works so I concluded on a few outcomes

      • Obviously stolen direct from a store, but this will only be for sets in stores
      • Stolen credit cards/money laundering, as some sets are seriously exclusive to LEGO online stores
      • Genuinely buying them but selling them for RRP or about $10-$20 cheaper or so, this depends what free gift (like this post) is offering where they may have offloaded this free gift and wants to make a teeny profit. Not to mention they will be able to accumulate the VIP points on LEGO online and reuse it to buy other sets.

    looks like double VIP points finished on 19th july even though banners are all over their site.

    •  

      Not sure if it has changed but now it says "VIP Double Points Offer applies to items 10698 and 31102 only."
      Was it for all items before?
