We have already talked about the newly released 2019 sets (see: January 2019 – New LEGO Sets & Promotions), but there are a couple of promotional items and special deals I wanted to bring to your attention. 🙂
As we discussed at the beginning of the month, the LEGO Store Calendar now only features the various in-store events, and does not talk about the monthly specials. In addition, the LEGO Store Calendar is no longer available online ahead of time, so it has become difficult to plan ahead. In summary, we can no longer rely on the LEGO Store Calendar for planning our purchases, and have to pay more attention to the front page and monthly specials page of the Online LEGO Shop.
Something else that also changed this year is that freebies are no longer added to your order automatically. You have to go to the Offers and Promotions page at the Online LEGO Shop to see what’s currently available, and grab one of the promo codes that you will have to manually enter at the checkout page. It’s easy to forget to check on the promos, and having to manually enter the code also makes shopping more tedious.
On the plus side, now we can choose between two different promotions. This month, LEGO is offering a free set with purchases over $25, and you can pick either a LEGO City or a LEGO Friends set. The LEGO City Fire ATV features an all-terrain firefighter vehicle with blue siren bubble light, plus a firefighter minifigure with helmet, axe and a fire extinguisher. The LEGO Friends Club House Pod features a Stephanie mini-doll figure with exclusive outfit, a hamster, plus a piece of mission equipment for each of the five friends. At checkout, enter code ATV1 for the City Fire ATV or POD1 for Friends Club House Pod at the Online LEGO Shop.
LEGO also changed how they handle Double VIP Points promotions. Instead of offering Double VIP Points on all sets for a short period of time, now they offer two sets each month with Double VIP Points. During the entire month of January, you can get the #41369 LEGO Friends Mia’s House and the #42094 LEGO Technic Tracked Loader with Double VIP Points. Both of these sets are new releases, so it’s great to get double points on them. You can find them at the LEGO Friends and LEGO Technic section of the Online LEGO Shop.
We talked about this previously, but for the sake of completeness, I will mention it again: There is a really nice promotion for LEGO VIP members who purchase The LEGO Movie 2 sets! You will get two cinema tickets to The LEGO Movie 2 if you spend $60 or more on The LEGO Movie 2 sets. After your purchase, you have 21 days to go to VIPExclusiveOffer.com, upload your physical or digital receipt, and receive your free movie tickets.
➡ LEGO SETS ON CLEARANCE SALE: While LEGO is promoting the new 2019 sets, they are also clearing out some old stock.
