The beginning of a new month always means new LEGO promotions, so let’s take a look at what’s happening this time. September is usually not as exciting as August when a lot of new sets get released (see: All New LEGO Sets & Promotions for August!), but there are still some offerings you may want to take advantage of. 🙂
First of all, there are two free promotional items this month; the free LEGO Legends of Chima Worriz’ Fire Bike set that you can get with purchases of $50 or more, is a carry-over from August and will last until September 14th. The second promotional item is the free exclusive LEGO Classic Spaceman Minifigure (with a little LEGO Classic Space robot). This offer is only available for LEGO VIP members from September 1st to the 14th with purchases of $99 or more. So basically if you make a $100 purchase, you will get both promo sets and of course free shipping.
The amazing and monstrous #76023 LEGO Batman The Tumbler is now available for all (not just LEGO VIP members) and you can get it at either official LEGO stores or the Online LEGO Shop. You can read more about this set here: LEGO Batman Tumbler Available Now!
Then from September 17th, LEGO VIP members get early access to this year’s LEGO Holiday exclusive, the #10475 LEGO Santa’s Workshop – a very cute set I will be reviewing within the next few days. The set will be available for non-VIP members in October. You can check out other LEGO holiday sets at the Online LEGO Shop.
I think it is worth placing at least one order in September to get the free LEGO Classic Space Minifigure promo set, otherwise you may consider waiting until October, where the Double VIP Points promotion will begin and last for the entire month. Which basically means that you will get $5 worth of points for every $50 you spend (instead of $100) at official LEGO Stores and the Online LEGO Shop. So October is a good month for making your larger purchases and maximizing the amount of points you get. You can then spend the accumulated points on future purchases. And in November, when the holiday shopping madness officially begins, LEGO will have their own version of Black Friday (called Brick Friday, of course) with discounted prices for LEGO VIP members and some other promotions.
Personally I don’t like to wait until November because a lot of the most desirable sets are sold out by then – especially all of the holiday sets like the LEGO Advent Calendars and the LEGO Winter Village sets. I would suggest that if you have a very specific LEGO shopping list for the holidays, you take care of it now or in October to avoid the crowds swooping down on LEGO retailers and the Online LEGO Shop.
So what do you think? How do you like this month’s promotions? Are you planning to get anything this month or saving up for later? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉
