Talking about assumptions you seem to be making quite a lot about my knowledge PD. In which case you did reply to be argumentative because, by your own admission, your very own internal translator already told you what I was saying. You just wanted to argue semantics.
And they can assist you in reading the terms and conditions of the promotion if required.
Saw a couple buy $600 worth of Lego and be given one polybag. They weren't too happy about it. They made them choose between the Volkswagen and the Clone Trooper Lieutenant! Helluva job they're doing, huh? Fact is they didn't handle the promo well. They chose to err on the side of stinginess rather than generosity. And a lot of people didn't like it.
I wanted multiples of these to give as gifts, and was even willing to spend separate increments of $75 to get them. But they didn't want my money, and I made sure they didn't get my money either since they were more interested in making sure I got just one promo per household per lifetime. And now the promo is over, and they have "lots" left over.
Also as @cheshirecat states, they ran out online before the end of the promotion.
And as for the heart not bleeding comment, why are you assuming that every person entitled to this promo is a Brickset reader or similar??
Most customers in a Lego store do not know anything about promotions until they are in the store, you saying that its their fault if they miss out by not going into the store until late in the month after you have taken your multiples for 'gifts'? I do know where you are coming from with this, and in fact had a very similar experience myself, I think this is a slightly different argument as this isn't about getting 2 copies of something that says 1 per customer but more a case of bad customer service from the salesperson at the time. In my experience it appears that Lego HQ is trying to trying to reduce leakage, there have previously been a 'lot' of unaccounted for promo's just disappear. When you then counter in that a lot of the Lego store staff are quite young I think it is natural that they are sticking to what they are told. I again question whether "lots" left over is factual, I would be surprised if they ran out online and had "lots" in store.
I love the fact some people on here feel we should feel sorry for those that didn't get multiples yet not for those that might not get one at all if the promo runs out early.
it was a fresh case, and I was on my way out of town late. They weren't getting rid of those by end of day.
Wasn't there a big event booked for Monday? Maybe they had them in for that?
They had way too many. THUS, your "lots." If there is a question of validity, whelp...I cant help there, other than saying it's my word.
You have been called "argumentative" in this thread, and you brushed it off.
The fact is, you are, and you seem to not see it. You're finding points to argue about, even if they don't really pertain to the point at hand. Regardless of the day, he could be one or two days off, a case full of promo items at the end of the event is not going away in a day or even three.
Rather than accept that point, you argued semantics over it.
You have been coming across as combative here, you might not be aware of it, but I wanted to point it out to you in the event you didn't know.
Back to our regularly scheduled programming.
Why should I accept the point of someone who I know nothing of and can't even get the date right?
I am well aware of coming across combative this evening, some times its the only way people will actually listen.
But again thanks for your oh so helpful post, I will be sure to take it to heart.
Ahh, look, how sweet, you have some more nice 'likes' from your little cronies!
Anyway, I got two VW Campers in the end, wonder what will happen to those that are left. Maybe there will be another VW camper promotion in a few months? Didn't TLG run more than one promo with TC-14?
Jesus Christ, some people!!!
Anyway, promo over, thread should be closed to stop all these wingers and complainers.
If we are going to start calling each other out for behaviour considered argumentative we are going to have lots of useless posts here.
Anyway the terms and conditions are there. I find the randomness unfair (Although Fairy Bricks has benefited) Either everyone should be able to get multiples or no one should. Maybe on a month long promotion you should be allowed a couple of orders so long as there is say a two week gap between them. The website should be fixed to reflect purchase limits.
Sleep required. Time awaits with the three dimensional people.
...and if you don't eat your meat, you can't have any pudding!
These little extras are to cater to the small percentage of adults who buy/collect/sell Lego. The kids don't care. Most adults buying for their kids don't care.
I went into my local Lego store with birthday gift certificates to buy Jabba's Sail Barge. I got both promos. An older gentleman even came up to me when I was in line and asked who the set was for. I told him for me lol. He obviously didn't care about the promos.
We should be glad we get them at all, and they are increasing in number every year. I for one say thank you Lego, and keep up the good work.
I agree...if you got one - yay. It's a headscratcher if it showed you got one in your bag at [email protected], and then....nothing, though. The fact that the rules are different in store, and online kinda stink for people that cant get to a store all the time. I understand the "huh" questions everyone mentions above (without the legal talk).
Times....they are a changin'.
I had one in my BL store, priced at what I thought was a "probably not sell" price. And it sold, just it and nothing else in the order. Worked out at about 33% discount on my £50 order to get it.
I think they are doing multiples of the Xmas promo set for multiple orders this year based on what others have said. I didn't bother with them this year, so cannot confirm it.
I got two from four orders, I know of people who only got one from multiple orders and of those who got 4/5, one from each order.
I said earlier in the thread that I could live with it being one per household if it was enforced on every order but it wasn't unfortunately.
In January I placed two orders and only one received the ATV polybag so I thought they might have run out. I knew I was not getting it because it was not added to the cart which is fine.
In February I placed 4 orders latish and did not get the Piece of Resistance polybag added to any.
When delivered they added a large holographic Lego Movie Sticker that has a bar code in the first order and the second order seemed to have the polybag added to the cart after the order was placed and it arrived(No Sticker in the second order). Thanks,
Forgot to mention - my two orders placed in January, only one had the poly. I believe they ran out towards the end of the month as it wasn't on my invoice nor in my cart when I checked out.
