Double VIP Promotion Now Live

LEGO usually have some sort of double VIP promotion during October and sure if enough we now have not only Double VIP Points but a nice little VIP bonus set too.

VIP Exclusive Set

The 40178 VIP Set will be added to your cart with orders over $200, assuming that you are a VIP customer.

As for the double VIP point offer, this equates to 2 points for every $1.50 spent.

The website has not yet been updated with the details of this offer but once I am able to confirm end dates I’ll update this article. Update: Here are the official details of the promotions.

Double VIP Points runs October 10 – 15.

VIP Promotional Set: Valid on VIP purchases 10 – 25 October, 2017. Valid only on item 40178. Qualifying purchase must be equal to or greater than $200 in LEGO merchandise only. One LEGO Exclusive VIP Set per household. Set cannot be purchased, exchanged or substituted for any other item or cash value. While supplies last only.

Are you planning to pick anything up during the promotion? You can head to LEGO Online here to place your order.

LEGO Looking For Giveaway Suggestions

sophia-cu-with-chat

Everybody knows that LEGO regularly have giveaways on their online store. These bonuses help tempt people to buy at RRP from the official online store. There have been some great giveaways in the past, and there have been some less great ones too.

Now LEGO is directly reaching out to the adult LEGO fan community for suggestions on future giveaways. They have asked partners like this site to find out what people want in a giveaway. I’ll collect your suggestions and then pass on the top 5. Enter your suggestion in the form below and then I will provide a poll to help finalise the top 5.

I’ll be taking suggestions until October 24th, and then from then until October 30th I will feature a poll of your suggestions.

Your suggestion can be anything that LEGO might produce – that mean no new IP and no suggestions that violate LEGO’s rules (drugs, nudity, war etc). More detail is available at the end of the article if you are still unsure.

On Sale: Various Offers From Toys R Us

Toys R Us have a new catalogue out, with a headline offer of “Buy one, get one half price” on selected themes.

They also have a few different bonus offers.

Main Sale Offer

TRU August 2017 B1G1HP

The main sale offering is buy one get one half price across Duplo, City, Friends, Technic, Creator and LEGO Batman Movie. You will be able to mix and match across those themes. The lower priced item will be the 50% off one, so you may need to split your purchase across multiple transactions to make the most of this offer.

TRU Ninjago Movie Competition

You can learn more about this competition here. The comp runs until September 24th, just in time for the movie.

 

May Issue of K-Zone Magazine Features Free LEGO U-Wing

The May issue of kids magazine K-Zone is out now and like some previous issue this one comes with a bonus polybag. The 30496 U-Wing set is a scaled down version of the 75155 set from Rogue One.

Kzone May 2017 Free U-wing

At 55 pieces this is a great little build. The magazine itself may not be of much interest to the AFOL community but for around $6 it’s worth getting just for the LEGO.

The magazine is available from Coles, Woolworths and Newsagents.

Thanks to Aidan for reminding me this was out.

On Sale: Selected Sets Reduced At Toys R Us [Plus Batman Bonus]

Toys R US Logo 200px

As Easter approaches we have even more sales coming out.

This offer from Toys R Us features a fairly wide variety of sets on sale. The range of $29.99 sets down to just $19.99 are fairly tempting.

The sale kicks off today (April 5th) and runs for two weeks (through to April 18th 2017). You can view the catalogue for yourself here, or as always with selected sets sales you can see a list below.

They are also offering a bonus polybag 30523 The Joker Battle Training with purchases over $50. Unfortunately their LEGO Batman Movie sets are barely on sale (about a 10% discount on some). Unless you really, really want that particular polybag I would suggest going to Myer and getting 20% off and their bonus polybag.

On Sale: Various Myer Offers – 30% Off Rogue One Sets, 20% Off Others, Plus Batman Bonus

Myer have a new catalogue starting today and for the most part it’s pretty disappointing, compared to their recent 25% off sale. Despite the underwhelming catalogue, there is plenty going on with Myer.

30% Off Rogue One

Myer April 04 2017 30pc Off Rogue One

First up is the best offer: 30% off Rogue One toys, including the LEGO sets from the film. I’m sure there are plenty of you yet to pick up some of these sets and I doubt you’ll see them much cheaper.

You can view the LEGO Star Wars range online here. The Rogue One sets should be 30% off, and the rest are 20% off, which brings me to the next deal;

20% Off LEGO

While Rogue One sets are 30% off, it seems the rest are 20% off. I’m not sure at this stage why or when it ends. I’ll check for updates. The 20% off runs until April 9th. Unfortunately this seems to exclude the sets in the on-going $15 off/$75 offer which is Friends, City and Duplo sets. You can view the full range here.

20% + 10% + 5% At Myer eBay store (31.5% Off)

This one gets a bit confusing. The sets that are on-sale for 20% off are also 20% off at the Myer eBay store. Myer’s eBay store is also offering 10% off purchases. You can also get an additional 5% off with the code CAU5.

If my math is correct that works out to be a discount of 31.59% off. That’s not bad.

The 10% bonus offer ends April 9th and is applied automatically in your cart. Still not sure when the 20% off ends. The 20% off also ends April 9th. Note that the 20% off excludes City, Friends and Duplo too.

View the Myer eBay range here.

Also if you buy on eBay you won’t get the Batman bonus offer…

Batman Bonus

Myer April 04 2017 Bonus Mini Batwing

Finally there is a bonus for LEGO Batman Movie fans… Spend $60 or more on LEGO Batman, DC Superheroes, Marvel Superheroes or Star Wars and receive a free Mini Batwing set.

 

Thanks to Alyssa and Ebrahim for making sure I didn’t miss the catalogue sale.

Batman LEGO Dimensions Pre-Order Offer From EB Games

Unfortunately the LEGO Batman Movie Story Pack for LEGO Dimensions has suffered the same fate as the film itself, with release being delayed until March 30th.

To ease the pain slightly EB Games are offering a deal for anybody that pre-orders before release. If you pre-order the LEGO Batman Movie story pack you will receive the Excalibur Batman Fun Pack for free.

LEGO Dimensions Batman Preorder Bonus EB

The EB price for the story pack is $79.99 and their price on the Fun Pack is $24.99.  For the sake of comparison the previously released Story Packs are currently $69 at Big W, while fun packs are $22. Those prices make the EB offer look pretty good.

Thanks to Wade for sending this through.

On Sale: Selected Sets On Sale At Big W, Bonus Friends Offer

BIG_W_LOGO_CIRCLE_Small

For those of you who didn’t spend your entire LEGO budget at Target this morning we have an offer from Big W.

From today (November 17th) until November 23rd Big W have a range of selected sets on sale. You can view the list of sets below as always, or you can view the catalogue for yourself here.

Note that this is in-store only as the Big W website is currently only for browsing due to a security problem.

If you are in the market for some LEGO Friends sets then there is a bonus offer that you won’t find elsewhere – spend over $20 on LEGO Friends sets and recieve a free 30208 Smoothie Stand set. I have heard that the 30208 sets have been available separately for $5 over the last view days, so it’s not a bad bonus.

Big W Nov16 Free Smoothie Stand

Free Christmas Gift From LEGO Online

If you needed further evidence of the rapid approach of Christmas then this offer from LEGO should do the trick. It’s not even November yet and LEGO are already offering Christmas bonuses.

From 23rd October 2016 until 20th November 2016 you will receive a free 40222 24-in-1 Christmas Builds set with orders over $120. The threshold is a little higher than some previous offers but with free shipping still set at $200 I imagine most people would be aiming for that anyway.

October 2016 Christmas 24in1

The 40222 24-in-1 set features parts to make 24 different Christmas inspired mini builds. It’s a great looking set and the fact that it is free is even better.

Don’t forget that the Double VIP points offer is still running until October 31st.

I’ve added some more pictures of the free set below.

Christmas Train Offer Details

40138 Christmas Train Thumb

We have had a few people contact us about the 40138 Christmas Train set which is currently a freebie for US customers.

With the Double VIP offer a lot of people seem to want that bonus to go with their orders.

The information that we have from the latest UK affiliate email indicates that this offer should be available for Australian customers from October 23rd. We’ll post about the offer once it does go live.

At this stage we don’t know when the Double VIP point offer ends but you should be able to get double points and the Christmas train if you place an order from the 23rd to the 31st.

The affiliate email states that the train offer runs until November 20th. The Gingerbread House may be available after that.
