Hot Lego Deals – How To Get the Best Deals!
Find the Best Lego Deals & Avoid Getting Ripped Off
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 few ways to tell right away if you are getting scammed! Here are the tricks I use to be a Frugal Lego Deal Finder!
Top 3 Tips to Get the Best Lego Deals
1. Check The Lego Shop
2. Pay Attention to the List Price
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.
3. 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 photoshop to make the Lego sets they are selling at an inflated price seem awesome!
Putting These Tips Into Action
For both of the examples above, 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 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.
