2011 Black Friday Thread

9 posts in this topic

Don't know if this should just go into the general sales thread or not, and don't know how applicable it is to other countries, so I figured I'd make it separate.

BFAds.net just posted the 2011 Toys R Us scan/list. The "scan" is terrible (it's actually poorly taken photos, probably from a phone camera). The strike-through prices are what TRU says are their "usual" prices (yes, we all know they often charge over MSRP).

On a side note, I know our friends in other countries have little sympathy, but one of the things that helped bring me out of my dark ages was BF sales. "Back in the day," they'd have one or two items with TREMENDOUS discounts. I got 4504 Millennium Falcon for $80; the AT-AT Walker for $75; the X-Wing for $25. (all different years/places). Had I not gotten those, I would not have started my LEGO SW collection at all (I would have stuck to trains... and they'd just killed 9V and the only trains I bought since then are the Emerald Night and Maersk Trains).

Now BF has become "just another sales day" for most companies, instead of the WOW, SUPER HUGE SAVINGS day it once was.

This is from the Holiday book (prices good starting end of Oct), not Black Friday sales. I got the book last week.

You're right, my bad. Looks like this actually ENDS on Thanksgiving.

Doesn`t looks like much savings from those prices.

I'm sorry if this is off-topic, but does anyone know of big Bricklink stores that make discounts on Black Fridays/Cyber Mondays? I have saved a few bucks and would like to buy several astromechs and other figs, so I could use a good discount. :classic:

Watch the brick link sales forum for this. There are always sales to be had in there. Some better than others.

And there's always the thing at Lego stores where you scratch the little card for a discount. I forgot what the biggest discount was though...I hope I can combine the discount with the $15+ discount I'll have with my VIP account...

Black Friday. More like stay inside at home and don't you dare leave Friday. *sigh*

I read up on that last year. I think there was a theoretical 50% off as the max, but I read a post by a Lego store employee who said nobody ever got that high among all the hundreds of customers that day. Like, it's possible, but basically it ain't gonna happen, lol. I'm not 100% sure on the numbers, as my memory is fuzzy. But the feeling I got back then was that nearly everyone got something like 10% off and then just a few lucky people got something at the next level, like 20 or 25% off, and essentially nobody got the highest discount possible. Again, don't /quote me on this, haha.
