Great news for LEGO fans! Looks like LEGO listened to feedback, and decided to offer unrestricted Double VIP Points from now until the end of the month! As you may remember, it appeared from the LEGO Store Calendar for October that select sets were going be offered with Double VIP Points (see: October 2018 – New LEGO Sets & Promotions) on October 8-9th. However, those dates came and went with no special offers. The Online LEGO Shop did list two sets with Double VIP Points for the entire month; the #75208 LEGO Star Wars Yoda’s Hut, and the #75218 LEGO Star Wars X-Wing Starfighter, but that’s a very paltry offering compared to specials from previous holiday seasons…
Fortunately, looks like LEGO realized it was a big mistake to disappoint and turn away their fans during the holiday shopping season, so they are now offering Double VIP Points on every purchase with no restrictions! This offer started yesterday (October 15th), and will last until the end of October. It’s a perfect time to buy the big sets from your wanted list, as well as take care of holiday shopping. The offer is valid both at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.
Also remember that the second freebie offer for the month also just went live yesterday. From now, until the end of the month, you will get a free LEGO Minifigure Collector Frame with purchases of $75 or more. While LEGO offered frames like this before, this is the first time we get a frame that’s not related to any specific license. The frame is made of sturdy black cardboard with a 32×32-stud dark-gray baseplate glued inside. The frame also comes with white brackets and slopes to build little stands to attach to the baseplate, plus an exclusive minifig. You can hang or stand the frame, or lay it down flat. This offer is valid on all purchases at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.
This month has been certainly confusing as far as special offers, but it looks like it has been all straightened out, and in our favor! If you have been eyeing some of the large sets like the #75222 LEGO Star Wars Betrayal at Cloud City, the 75192 LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon, the #75159 LEGO Star Wars Death Star, the #71043 LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle, the #10261 LEGO Creator Roller Coaster, the #10256 LEGO Creator Taj Mahal, the #10255 LEGO Creator Assembly Square, the #42083 LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron, the #70620 LEGO Ninjago City and matching #75657 LEGO Ninjago City Docks, the new #21311 LEGO Ideas Voltron, or some of the earlier large sets, the Double VIP Points period is the best time to get them. You will earn twice as many points as normal, which you can redeem at a future date. Double VIP Points basically end up being 10% savings on your purchase, which is especially beneficial on large and popular sets that almost never go on sale.
And of course, you can also stock up on smaller sets from your favorite theme, as well as the holiday sets like the #10254 LEGO Winter Village Holiday Train, the #10259 LEGO Winter Village Train Station, the most recent #10263 LEGO Winter Village Fire Station, and the LEGO Christmas Advent Calendars. To see the whole selection of currently available sets, visit the Online LEGO Shop.
