No more BN Bargains?

The 30% Kids Club coupons cannot be used on LEGO in BN… but then again even at 10% off prices I think some sets are worth ordering from BN.

Read this off HWZ thread and just wanted to share what ‘delay’ shared from his correspondence with BN on the use of the 30% discount code on LEGO:

    Dun know why they disabled the discount from 22 Feb onwards. Was able to get the Clone Turbo Tank while it was still working. Missed out on the Police Station when I checked out on 22 Feb. Sigh.

    Best online deal and cheap shipping . Saved around 50% off the retail price.

    On the brighter side, I was able to order Apple Tree House and Krusty Krab Adventures when the code was still working. Now I’m eying Hagrid’s Hut and a new miracle coupon to fall from the sky.

    i hope this is not because they make a loss from selling lego…it will be really sad…

    hopefully the code will come back alive for Jun releases…now i got a $5 kid’s club voucher and i don’t know what to buy…
