While we already discussed the various promotions, and new releases this month (see: June 2016 – New LEGO Sets & Promotions), there are a couple of specials that LEGO sneaked in later in the month that I wanted to bring to your attention. 🙂
➡ LEGO CREATOR BIG BEN AVAILABLE: The #10253 LEGO Creator Big Ben is now available for LEGO VIP members. This set has been getting a lot of praise for from the LEGO fan community. You can check out the press-release here: LEGO Creator Big Ben Pictures & Details, and find it under the LEGO Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO VIP 100 BONUS POINTS: You are probably a LEGO VIP member already, but in case you aren’t, right now is a great time to join. LEGO is offering 100 bonus points just for signing up. This is basically a $5 reward you can use towards your next purchase. Membership is free, and there is absolutely no downside to it. As a LEGO VIP member for every dollar you spend you earn 1 VIP Point. 100 VIP Points give you a $5 reward that you can use towards a future purchase. LEGO also regularly runs Double VIP Points events, which allows you to earn more points. You can use your VIP membership at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop. You also get access to members-only gifts, early access to exclusive and hard-to-find sets, and get invited to members-only LEGO store events. You can earn 100 bonus points until the end of the month. If you would like to join, sign up here.
➡ FREE SHIPPING FOR VIP MEMBERS: Normally LEGO offers free shipping on orders over $75 at the Online LEGO Shop, but this month the free shipping threshold is lowered to LEGO VIP members to only $35. With all the new sets that were just released, this is a really easy threshold to meet. You can find all the new sets under the What’s New section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO SHOP NOW OFFERS PAYPAL: The Online LEGO Shop recently added a new option to check out with PayPal. This is a convenient and easy-to-use way to pay that most people are already familiar with, so it’s nice to see that LEGO added it as a payment method.
Hope the above information helps in taking care of your LEGO shopping needs this month. What do you think? Are you planning to get the LEGO Creator Big Ben? Or take care of some smaller purchases while the free shipping threshold is lowered for LEGO VIP members? What are your favorite new LEGO sets this summer?
