Hot Lego Deals – How To Get the Best Deals!

Stock the gift closet, for less!

My kids just absolutely LOVE Lego sets! For any gift-giving occasion (like birthdays or Christmas), Lego sets are a safe bet and happily received. And really my whole family loves these toys, with Dad in the lead. Lego sets don’t go on sale very often, so when one of the sets you want is discounted, you should snatch it up!  To me, anything 20% off or more on Lego sets is GREAT!

However, sometimes (especially around holidays) some of the individuals selling Lego Sets aren’t honest.  Here are a couple of ways to tell right away if you are getting scammed! Here are the tricks I use to be a Frugal Lego Deal Finder!

Tips and Tricks

  • Check The LEGO Shop!  They tell you right up front what the price SHOULD be!
  • If it doesn’t have a List Price, you are either paying retail, or getting scammed.   The picture below shows you what the scammers inflated price looks like, and the 2nd example shows you what a real sale looks like.  You can’t mess with the list price on things, but you can make it disappear from the item you are selling.
    How to spot a Lego Deal - List Price
  • Always look for a piece count.  The going price on Lego sets is about $10 per 100 pieces, give or take a little.  However, when you don’t see a piece count, you can’t use that to judge.  People spend a lot of time using photo shop to make the Lego sets they are selling at an inflated price seem awesome!
    How to spot a Lego Deal - Piece Count
  • For both of these examples, my inflated product was the LEGO Castle King’s Carriage Ambush 7188.  It does list the item number, so a quick hop over to the The LEGO Shop, and I can do a search by item number (7188), but nothing came up.  So then I hop onto Google, and do an image search and it shows me it had 285 pieces.  That means it should be somewhere in the $20-$30 range, not almost $50! However, it did also tell me that this is a retired product, so yes, some collectors are willing to pay more, and that’s what the seller is hoping for.

We love bringing you the best of the best LEGO deals!

But there are a TON of options!  Instead of having you scroll through 50-100 different sets that could be on sale at any given time, they are sorted by major LEGO theme! Did we miss a set?  Please let us know in the comments!  We’ll be happy to add it!

Lego deals on Amazon 6-15


  1. Thanks for sharing the info about $10/100 legos; I almost purchased a 188 piece set for $48, thinking it was much more than it really was!! Really appreciate the wakeup call; not everything on Amazon is a deal!

    • I’m so glad you found the information useful!!! I’m eventually going to turn it into a pretty graphic, but for now just wanted to get the info out there! Amazon is GREAT, MOST of the time 🙂 But especially with hot items like this, you have to be careful 🙂

  2. Thanks for the great Lego info. My son desperately wants the Minecraft regular sets(not the Micro Worlds) but they’re sold out at all brick and mortar stores/normal web stores. I just can’t convince myself to pay more despite how much he wants it.

    • Sadly, I think just about everywhere is sold out, or WAY overpriced for Minecraft now 🙁

      • Yep! Pretty much anyway. Lego added them back to their website but they won’t ship until at least Dec. 29th. 🙁 May buy them anyways and print the picture and tell him that they’ll be here shortly after Christmas.

        • The Lego store would be my best guess as well. They take about a week to get the stuff to you, so if it ships on the 29th, it’ll probably be to you by the 5th or so.

    This is awesome just like Lego is. My kids love to play with it for hours and hours but to be honest most times I think Lego is so expensive! Thanks!


  1. […] are now many Mega Bloks building sets geared toward the older children too! Cheaper than most Legos too. Check out some of these Mega Bloks deals available right now! These make such great gift ideas […]

  2. […] also have a whole post dedicated to Lego deals that beat Lego store prices by at least […]

  3. […] pay more than that.  When we put this list together it was $119 on Amazon!  See how to tell What’s a Great Deal for Lego’s on Amazon.  But if you find it for less than that on Amazon, get it fast, because this is it’s first […]
