Better than me, I wanted that Hobbit set for $18, the pen holder house and a very small PAB order. PAB won't add to cart, and when I click "Check Out" it directs me back to the [email protected] home page. The Hobbit set is now OOS. I still can't get the darn pencil holder.egadzook wrote:Just got an email that they had to cancel one of the items in my order, as they ran out of stock on the Brainiac Attack. Boo hiss.
First and foremost, thanks Toysnbricks for updates this holiday season! I never got to pick up a Target minifigure cube because brickpicker members bought them all out but we scored just about everything else on our list! Without you guys, this holiday would have been more expensive and less fun for my kids!
grats to everyone that got great deals today! Now on to another topic,
Use common sense and don't be greedy with cool free promo's like GB! They are for the children and families, not resellers..
A LOT OF BANS WENT OUT TODAY. greedy resellers tried to make excessive $100 orders for the free GB. If you are in this camp and reading, you got what you deserve. Isn't 1 order or 2 enough?? But no, some folks have to keep going and going. I'm sure Lego was cool with multiple orders but not 20..
The problem with greed is that it never ends..Markets in societies of free trade are by and large regulated for the main purpose of limiting those with power from using that power to manipulate the market furthur.
The lesson: Don't abuse TLG free promo offers! simple as that.
Lego and Target and TRU don't mind resellers, but they can get very annoyed by them.. be careful.
I get your point here, which I wouldn’t disagree with. But when you insinuate that you have inside information and make it so dramatic, it’s not very believable. Try toning it down a little next time.
Now if you DO in fact have specifics rather than blind shots in the dark as it seems to me, please do share. I am a LEGO addict, for myself, my son, and any future kids I might have. So I’m sure at times that it might appear to TLG that I might be a reseller because of the volume I buy. So I’m always wondering if this is an argument I’m going to have to have with someone at sometime. I am absolutely certain that I am in the highest percentile of purchasers at my local LEGO store, yet I didn’t get invited to the hour early VIP thing last week, for instance. Which by the way bothers me way more than I would have enjoyed actually being invited.
PS - don't anyone bother explaining to me how the VIP event might or might not be based on purchases, submitting surveys, etc, etc. I know about all that.
So what did they say?pepe wrote:I placed multiple orders to get multiples of some promotional item and now lego will not ship to me anymore as they believe I am a business. The ban is real, I don't know what the threshold is but it did happen to me. I think I had placed 10 orders as I was getting large sets I was going to be holding on to for a while.
Brickmythic – you’re not off the hook! 1 person sounding like Han Solo “it’s real” might validate that the ban does in fact exist. But again, how do YOU know “A LOT OF BANS WENT OUT TODAY”. I’m not just out trying to call someone’s BS as it might seem. I’m interested in the details of how it actually works, and how exactly you know this information.
Derevans – I also wonder if big spenders like us are being looked at. In a 3rd group or some watch list, not quite at the banned level yet. It’s impossible to overlook our spending (I have $1,500 in points accumulated in the last 13 months, not including thousands I bought at Legoland, Amazon, Target...), yet we’re not even invited to an event that (historically) was for customers exactly like us.
Just noticed that the Brainiac Attack set is available at Target for $19.99 online and ships free! Good news for those that missed out on the Brainiac Set during Black Friday sale.egadzook wrote:Just got an email that they had to cancel one of the items in my order, as they ran out of stock on the Brainiac Attack.
