well its back up a little bit more-

I am glad i have such a crazy sleeping schedule that allows me to surf amazon 4 oclock in the morning haha- im hoping that the RGS goes down 50% or something- these are really crazy deals

so how are these things working guys? i just found the AT-TE by chance- but im trying to figure out how you guys get those speed deal clues or whatever.

It would be great to score the sandcrawler at a cheaper price if possible

Okay, I have to ask. How did you get that many?

Do you have 6 different accounts?

How do you find out when Amazon puts the star wars lego sets on sale. It seems like that choose random hours of the early morning/late night to do it. Does any one know the times?

Look around the top of the page (the Amazon page) and there should be a little gold box (like a wrapped present or something). That leads to the lightning deals page. At least that's what I see when I go there.

Also, I will echo the "How did you get 6?" question.

I don't think the AT-TE deal was advertised before it happened, but I could be wrong. As far as the Magnaguard Starfighter and the Indy Jungle Cutter, thye are listed in the lightning gold box deals. They don't exactly tell you what they are, but the clues make it pretty easy to figure out. I think they have 10-12 a day and in the morning you can look at the clues for all 10 and see if their will be a Lego one on that day

I found out that if you add a gold special into your cart without committing to buy, it still shows up later in the day to think about buying it. I put one in the cart at around 2:30pm and did not check out. When I went to check it at 11pm (I assume they were all spoken for), it still showed the $10.75 savings off the sale price. Maybe they were not sold out?

No, I simply put six in my cart and ordered them. No trickery... just LEGOery. Razz

Why?

Was the AT-TE a gold box deal or was it just listed at 50% off? multiple people bought multiple sets, unlike the other deals where you could only buy one? Gives me hope that maybe it will go back down to that price.

I am not sure, honestly.

I just saw it and I bought it. (at 3.30AM, boo sleeplessness)

Now it is back up to just 25% off.

I played around with this for other gold box deals, you can add it to your cart but if the deal is expired, when you go to checkout the discount will be taken away.

Today, 10:00 a.m. PST:

"Ready is he for his own saber?" Yoda would be very impressed with this lightning deal!

It's the Clone Wars Ultimate Lightsaber at 37% off.

Today, 12:00 p.m. PST:

Make "Jetrax" to get this great deal that you won't want to "LEGO"!

Probably this: http://shop.lego.com/ByTheme/Product.aspx?p=8942&cn=541&d=351

Perhaps you'll notice that this thread involves Amazon sales...Amazon offers "clues" to what will be offered in their upcoming and very limited "Gold Box" deals.

UCS General Grievous is on sale for $40.99 at amazon.com. If you are even thinking about it, I would jump on this deal quick. Prices on amazon.com tend to fluctuate pretty wildly.

Copyright, I need a ruling. I'm reviving this thread, but I'm not sure if this is "clearance" so I don't know if the existing "all holiday clearance" thread qualifies...anywho:

7626 Jungle Cutter $29.99 (MSRP $39.99)

7673 MagnaGuard Starfighter $33.74 (MSRP $44.99)

7674 V-19 Torrent $41.24 (MSRP $54.99)

In the time it took you to post that, you could've looked, but I will humor you: currently, the AT-TE sale is like a buck off (via Target) and not worth mentioning.

As far as I am concerned, the post-holiday sale should have already died.

So this is fine!
