    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).

    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.

    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

    #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.

    #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: 85
    ^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.

    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.
