VIPs Get Early Access To Second Christmas Bonus Set

If you head over to the Australian online LEGO store you may notice a new offer – VIPs are being given access to the second of the Christmas bonus sets a little bit early.

VIP Early Access Ice Skating

It may be worth waiting a little bit though – reports are that this offer has appeared a little bit early, and it will not officially kick off until tomorrow (22nd November 2014).

When the offer is live the set should appear in your cart, so it may be worth checking regularly over the next day or so. As this is a VIP offer you will need to be logged in with your VIP account to access the deal.

The offer should become available to all shoppers soon.

Thanks to Josh for sending the information about the offer.

Not only is this set cute, it also goes perfectly with 10245 Santa’s Workshop.

To take advantage of the offer you will need to have an existing VIP account, or contact LEGO customer service prior to placing your order. The image above will take you directly to the store.

Santa’s Workshop is also now available to non-VIP customers

10245 Main

If you are interested in this set it may be worth holding off until the 15th of October. Australia usually follows the UK promotions, and there are strong indications that a new promotion will kick off in the second half of the month; A bonus Elf Workshop set when you purchase Santa’s Workshop. At this stage we are unable to confirm with absolute certainty that Australia will be getting this promotion.

LEGO Online Store Currently Offline [Updated]

LEGO Offline

It seems that the online LEGO store is currently offline. We aren’t sure what is causing the outage, but at the time of writing (9:30AM AEST) it has been offline for at least three hours.

UPDATE: The store is back online. There doesn’t appear to be any difference (no new sets added).

 

If you have been trying to order something and came across the Service Unvailable page it’s not just you. This does appear to be a global outage, with multiple regions experiencing the issue.

August sees the release of some much anticipated sets like the Mini and Exo-Suit, so let’s hope the store is back online soon.

Here is the message currently displayed

LEGO Increases Free Shipping Threshold By $50

Free Delivery

For LEGO fans looking to buy something hard to find or exclusive the official Australian online LEGO store was a good option. They do sell at Australian RRP, but the inclusion of regular bonuses meant it was easy to justify the little extra. Unfortunately, as of today, the free shipping threshold has increased from $150 to $200. To some it may not seem like a big difference, but it will make the online store less appealing for a lot of shoppers.

A good example of the problem is new Star Wars set 75054 AT-AT. With a price of $169.99 this set previously qualified for free shipping. As of today you will either have to pay $35 shipping or add an extra $30.01 worth of LEGO to your order. If you have a strict budget then the online store just no longer became an option.

Here is what the online store website says

We strive to offer you an unrivaled shopper experience. Due to changes with our shipping logistics, we have recently had to review our free shipping threshold.

As far as we can tell there have been no increases to their standard shipping charges, which have always been high. The minimum delivery charge is $25.00.

What can you do about this change?

The first thing we suggest is contact LEGO customer service and tell them that you aren’t happy with the change. We aren’t sure if LEGO will revise their position, so your next option is to shop around. Stay up to date with sales and check Amazon.com. With a lot more sets shipping to Australia and some good sales Amazon has become one of the cheapest ways to get LEGO.

Thanks to everybody who made us aware of the change
