LEGO VIP Weekend Early Black Friday Promotions

LEGO is running an early Black Friday event for LEGO VIP members this weekend. This is a great way to avoid the Black Friday shopping madness, and you also have a better chance of getting the sets you want before they go out of stock. Below are the details.

During LEGO VIP weekend (November 20-21), you will get the #40410 LEGO Charles Dickens Tribute set with purchases of $150 or more. This is a nicely designed, quite substantial 333-piece set with exclusive minifigs. This offer is valid at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.

The second freebie this weekend is the #5006291 LEGO Teal Brick with purchases of $200 or more. This is a 110-piece set for building a teal-colored large 2×4 stud LEGO brick on a black stand. A freebie for sure! This offer is also valid at official LEGO stores and Online LEGO Shop.

In addition, you will also get Double VIP Points on all purchases this weekend, which basically means a 10% discount.

And there is yet another freebie for LEGO VIP members. The #10274 LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 is already available for LEGO VIP members before the wider release next month.
