    Let's kick this off with a Scuttler #70908 for €64, that's 20% off German retail, 30% of Belgian price.

    Great! Let's get started then.

    First off, a general remark. When ordering from another country, Amazon will typically apply local VAT to the order. Local being the country where the goods are delivered - i.e. the one you reside in. This means that the amount you pay might differ from the advertised amount as the advertised amount includes German VAT (19%). The rate applicable for your delivery address will ultimately apply. 

    What country you reside in also influences how good a deal is. LEGO tries to maintain a different price level for LEGO in Germany compared to a number of neighboring countries. Additionally, Amazon.de sometimes has delivery restrictions on some sets so a particular offer might be inaccessible to you because of the country of your delivery address. 

    Amazon currently has Batman Movie set  #70901 Mr Freeze Attack for 17.99 EUR currently. Pretty good deal if you're in the Benelux (RRP=29,99 €), still an okay deal for Germany (RRP=24,99 €)

    Note that Amazon might deliver for free to your country and that it has tresholds for free shipping in that case. Free delivery always takes a couple of days as well.

    Amazon DE is price matching Galeria Kaufhof. There might be other sets as well, but #75106 Imperial Assault Carrier is now EUR 77.99 - about the lowest it has ever been for anybody who wants to complete their SW Rebels collection.

    Right, checked the Galeria Kaufhof deals (here). Amazon will not need to make a big effort to match them. However for Nexo Knights collectors it might be worth keeping an eye out for Amazon matching their price for #70316 Jestro’s Evil Mobile (they have ot for EUR 29.99).
  • KerreKerre In a bar, under the sea.Member Posts: 246
    Amazon.de seems to have no stock of #70316 and Galleria Kaufhof only ships to German addresses. Which is a good thing for me personally as I'd be tempted to buy a second one *Hangs head in shame*.

    I'm tempted by the #75106 - Sabine with helmet! - but I'll try to resist as I'm already way past the agreed monthly LEGO budget for Jan/Feb.
  • sid3windrsid3windr BelgiumMember Posts: 854
    I've acquired #70900 (smaller discount, +- 27%) and #70901 (indeed +- 40%, thanks @Kerre).

    That being said I've currently blown my budget for May so you're doing alright.

    Seems that  Galleria Kaufhof has discounted some more sets and Amazon DE is following suit. I spotted these:
    • #75147 - StarScavenger for EUR 39,14
    • #75157 - Captain Rex's AT-TE for EUR  85,25 
    • #75149 - Resistance X-Wing Fighterfor EUR  60,89

    I bought #75147 in December from Amazon.de for only €30,67
    That was such an awesome deal, since its RRP in NL is€69,99
    Anyway thanks @stlux ;   for the headsup!
    Won't be buying any of those, since I already spend waaaay more than I had planned when I scooped up a whole bunch of sets discounted 50% at Lego S@H
  • KerreKerre In a bar, under the sea.Member Posts: 246
    #75170 The Phantom for 29,99 € (Benelux RRP=44,99 €, German RRP 39,99 €) at Amazon.de currently.

    If you value your LEGO set boxes to arrive undamaged, do be aware Amazon.de possibly still sends these out either without or with very basic packaging (cardboard sleeve, not a box) as I described in the Amazon.co.uk thread.
  • KerreKerre In a bar, under the sea.Member Posts: 246
    #75172 Y-wing Starfighter for 44,99 € (Benelux RRP 69.99 €, a bit more than 35% off).

    ^
    I just ordered that y-wing! It is €79,99 at Lego S@H in NL. I paid €45,75 for it on Amazon.de since VAT is currently 21% in NL. Still saved €34,24 on it compared to Lego S@H or any other retailer here.
    Is that set €10 cheaper over at S@H in Belgium!?
  • KerreKerre In a bar, under the sea.Member Posts: 246
    ^You're right! Benelux RRP=79,99 €, German RRP=69,99 €. That's almost a 43% discount even with the higher VAT taken into account.

    Hadn't checked the figures that well as I was in the process of ordering one myself. My price alert set at 50 € had triggered and that typically prompts me to go into "Order now!"-mode in case stocks are limited. Deciding what I consider a decent price for the set is done when setting the alert. 

    You're also correct regarding the price difference caused by the VAT rate. I stopped taking that into account for posting deals here. Comparing is complex enough already with these differing Lego Shop Euro RRP prices - did you know the RRP in France differs from the German and Benelux prices? It's 76,99 € over there? Belgian VAT is 21% like in The Netherlands so I paid 45,75 as well. Prices for delivery to Luxembourg would be lower than the Amazon.de advertised price since LU VAT is 17% instead of 19% in DE.

    ^#60110 Fire Station  is 59,99 €, not 71,99 €

    Oh, and for completeness' sake: Duplo #10838 Family pets is 15% off.   
  • stluxstlux LuxembourgMember Posts: 1,419
    Amazon DE is price-matching some other German shops, resulting in some decent discounts on e.g.
    • 75149 - Resistance X-Wing Fighter for EUR 55.99
    • 75157 - Captain Rex's AT-TE for EUR 79.99
    That's close to the lowest price these sets have ever been.

    They seem to be regularly going in and out of stock, but just check a couple of hours later. Worked for me.

    No Prime required.

    Prime only: Nexo Knights #70352 Jestro's Headquarters for 64,99 €. That's 66,08 € when ordering from Belgium due to VAT differences. RRP in BE is 109,99 €, a 40% discount. 

    Amazon.de is at it again with their "frustration-free packaging" for this set. If ordering one, do be careful to check that "ship in Amazon box" checkbox if you want at least a chance of receiving the set box without major dents, tears and bags missing.
  • snowhitiesnowhitie BelgiumMember Posts: 1,954
    For buyers from NL, when you buy for more than 40 euro, add 10korting for 10 euro discount, once per person, I've not tried it for Be, but it might work. Already went mad on amazon.co.uk, great discounts at the moment, even with the extra postage :)

    Doesn't work for BE, tried it yesterday (forgot to announce it here, likely due to my disappointment). Shame, because the RC Tracked Racer was being pricematched with TRU DE, and an extra 10€ would mean instabuy for me...
  • snowhitiesnowhitie BelgiumMember Posts: 1,954
    This Technic Air Race Jet (#42066) for € 76.55

  • sid3windrsid3windr BelgiumMember Posts: 854

    • First Order Star Destroyer #75190 99.99€
    • First Order Heavy Assault Walker #75189 109.98€
    • BB-8 #75187 79.98€

    Not an offer per se but relevant for Belgian Amazon.de shoppers:

    Amazon.de is launching prime in/to Belgium today. My take:

    It's basically the same offer of what was already available on Amazon.fr but with the benefit of being able shop in Dutch and get Dutch-speaking customer support.

    Currently you get:
    • One working day delivery: My experience with Amazon.fr prime is that this promise is not always upheld. Hopefully this will now further improve. Personal positive here is that packages processes as on-day delivery consistently have arrived in better shape than the free-delivery ones.
    • Prime Video: still no Dutch UI, some but not all content has Dutch subtitles. Some single seasons of Kids' series started to appear with Dutch audio though: Paw Patrol, Dora, Peppa Pig, Team Umizoomi, Ben and Holly, Spongebob, Avatar, Korra.  Limited overall selection compared to Netflix for instance but a okay-to good value proposition considering the price and content Prime as a package. I personally really like some Amazon-produced content like The Man in the High Castle and American Gods. Tip: get a vpn subscription too!
    • Access to Prime-only offers and early access Lightning deals: I still find it shady to have to 'buy' access to be able to buy products. Guess it works to get customers committed to the Amazon ecosystem though. Quite a bit o LEGO offers have been are Prime-only recently.
    • Twitch/Prime Photos could help sweeten the deal if relevant for you.
    The ugly is still that difficult choice between Amazon.fr and Amazon.de. There is no Belgian Amazon site. Well, there is, but it's an unrelated Insurance broker.
    Now you have the difficult decision of choosing Prime on .fr or .de as well or pay a Prime subscription twice if you want to benefit from both.
