    So... one point per dollar spent, instead of 6.5 per dollar from Lego... Better than nothing, I suppose.

    This is great news, especially for those who have RedCards and get an extra 5% discount.  That, plus the fact that Target puts more sets on sale compared to [email protected] and they're usually willing to pricematch major competitors makes this news even more appealing, assuming it's true.  Earning a paltry 1 pt/$ is just the cherry on top for those of us who already prefer buying Lego from Target for the reasons above.

    I guess it's great news? I don't know, I look at the Lego.com site and and I get $20 in credit for 2,600 points. Maybe this deal will pay off for others, but I can't even say I'll be buying a fraction of that between now and the end of the year.
    Hopefully others will see a tangible benefit from the promotion.

    You have to spend $400 at [email protected] to get 2600 points, unless you earned that amount during 2x VIP, in which case you'd have to spend $200.

    If I bought that same $200 set at Target with my RedCard, I'd immediately get 5% off that price.  Not to mention, Target semiregularly has sales on Lego sets, whether it's a straight up discount or a gift card promotion, whereas [email protected] mostly sells sets at MSRP.  This supposed VIP point tie-in with Target runs through Black Friday and Christmas, which you can pretty much guarantee will mean sales at Target.  So, you'd be likely be earning VIP points (albeit at a smaller rate) while also enjoying added discounts that Lego might not have.

    So even if you don't have a RedCard or the Lego sales at Target suck for the rest of the year, how is this not good news?  It's an added perk for anyone who wants to shop at Target and doesn't take anything away from [email protected]  I only wish this started when I bought some sets during the 20% off sale at Target a couple of weeks back.

    Well, if they start cross-enforcing limits between Target and [email protected] via a joint VIP account, that would be a pretty big problem.

    And not worth 1/6.5 of an award….

    I'm not implying that it's not good news, only that the level of "good" depends on the buyer. I have a red card, and I'm sure I'll be making some Lego purchases between now and the end of the year. If it's a set that I want and I can get it at target on sale with 5% off on top of that, I'll get it at Target. But the MVP kicker won't impact my buying habits to encourage me buy more from Target that I wasn't already planning to spend on Lego, and certainly not enough to create a tangible reward towards a future [email protected] purchase. But like any purchase-based promotion, the results will vary based on how much a given consumer will purchase.

    I think what would be interesting to know is how a promotion comes about, how the idea gets approval, what kind of results they're hoping to see as a result of the promotion, and how they measure the success of a promotion like this. Who knows? if it's successful, maybe it'll become a permanent partnership between Target and Lego, and maybe even extend to other companies like Wal-Mart.
  • MugenPowerMugenPower Member Posts: 620
    That's fair, and I don't think it'll do much to change anyone's buying habits either.  It's just that for once, this seems like a (small) win for the customer amidst all the changes that have happened from Lego these past few years (VIP program changes, price increases, lackluster discounts, increasing GWP spend thresholds...).

    Stolen from slickdeals, Target has #76218 up for preorder for $200.

    76391: Hogwarts Icons Collectors' Edition is still 249.99 at Target. IT may be the last opportunity to get it at that price. 
  • autolycusautolycus US-SEMember Posts: 1,284
    Home Alone is still $250 also.

    Really really tempting, but I just spent a ton yesterday in order to save $180 on 4 big sets that also went up in price. Those were higher priorities than Home Alone, which has probably moved off the wish list unless there's a big Black Friday deal the year it retires -- if such things ever return anyway.

    Has anyone had any luck with getting VIP points for digital purchases?  I tried with the the sanctum and they denied it saying that the item isn't included in the promotion.  The instructions say that a DPCI is required but it doesn't look  like Target adds those for digital receipts.
  • PapaBearPapaBear East CoastMember Posts: 542
    The info kept saying receipts, so I assume it is in-store only.  The details also said 1 VIP point per dollar spent which is less than a %1 reward.  That's not enough to motivate me to stop by Target even if I was driving by it.

    The submit page mentions screenshots of online orders will work too. The 1% isn't that big of a deal but figured I'd try since it seems like it should qualify.

    For anyone who's curious about the VIP points promo, I also submitted an online order and it got rejected.  I chatted with CS about it, who asked me to share the digital invoice again, and she added the points manually to my account.  I asked her if there's anything I can do differently in the future and she said she wasn't sure since it's such a new thing, but that she'd speak with her boss about it.  So in the meantime, looks like contacting CS is the solution.  Yes, more fuel to the fire for those who are ho-hum about this offer.  ;)

    FWIW, I also submitted a physical store receipt and it got approved within a day.

    Hey you all, I submitted my four online orders and they all got approved. Still working on an in store approval (which got rejected by showing a screenshot of the "In Store" purchase through my online account).

    For online orders, if you go to Target.com via a web browser, then log into your account, go to your orders and find the applicable order. While viewing the order, on the right hand side under the total amount paid, there is a "Receipts & Invoices" button. Click that. Then there will be two buttons on the top, one for "Print receipts", and one for "View detailed invoices". Click on the "View details invoices" one. Then there will be buttons on the right that say "View invoice". Click the applicable one, then in the upper right hand corner of the invoice, you have the option to "Print invoice". Click on that button. A new window will appear to print the invoice. Take a screenshot of the invoice preview, save as a JPG, and submit that as your receipt. You may need to adjust the scale to show the entire invoice in one screenshot. The four I submitted yesterday were all approved.

    I'll bet there's a better way to do it via your mobile device, but if you have a laptop or desktop at your disposal, the aforementioned way works.

    I'm trying what @MugenPower did, and submitted a photo of the physical store receipt. Will confirm, but it sounds like this works as well.

    Hope that helps you all.

    Another thing that may be helpful to some of you. I made an in store purchase of the Viking Ship (31132) on Monday. The price on the shelf showed $99.99, but when it rang up at the self checkout, it was $119.99. I fortunately took a picture of the price on the shelf, and asked the cashier about it. She adjusted the price to $99.99 after I showed the picture.

    May have limited time to do this, as I'll bet Target will begin updating prices labeled on the shelves.

    Good luck!

    That's exactly what I did, except I printed it to PDF and uploaded that.  I think the problem is that it doesn't show the DCPI, which was listed as a requirement for eligibility.  Maybe they've learned to work with that since then, but glad it worked without a hitch for you.  Hopefully that means it'll work fine from now on.

    I did the same thing but the result was "The products listed on your receipt are not included in this promotion." (I bought 31132 and two 30043) I have to chat with the CS and 93+7 points were added to my account manually.  A Red Card free shipping $5.99 and 5% off are treated as a promotion and will be deducted in the subtotal, according to the CS.

    I was able to find a  #71374 Nintendo Entertainment System and a #71755 Ninjago Temple of the Endless Sea at a Target for 30% off in a clearance aisle marked "return as is".   I made sure to check first that they weren't tampered with.  Anyway, I tried the upload receipt on Lego.com on Friday night and it was rewarded the next day.  Not a problem.  Just scanned it and uploaded it.

    I finally called Lego to cancel a backordered item and figured I'd ask about the target receipt that was denied.  They just had me email them the image and added the points.  Later when I looked at my account I saw that they gave me 6.5 points and it was based on the full price, not the sale price...so there's a bonus.

    I submitted a mixed receipt with several other non-LEGO items on it and a single polybag. Mine went through without issue. Granted I only ended up with 5 points....but better than nothing. Considering I don't have a LEGO Store anywhere close to me, knowing I could get at least some points from a local purchase is nice.

    Sorry, meant 6.5 points per dollar.  So it was 1625 points total instead of 200.

    For anyone still following this receipt upload saga, I submitted a digital invoice from another online order (so, no DPCI) a few days ago and it was approved without me needing to contact CS.  So, it looks like they're catching on on how to deal with this.

    It's now been a month since the World-Ending LEGO Price Increase... and I have not seen any shelf prices raised to the new amount. But they scan at the higher prices. How many non-AFOL customers have unknowingly paid more than they thought because a LEGO set was just one thing in a cart full of miscellaneous stuff?
    This couldn't possibly be a deliberate oversight, could it? 🤔

    It could just be the employees at your store are slacking.  I've been to a few in my area and the shelf tags for a few of the sets I remembered were updated.

    If you find shelf tags at the lower price still, it might be worth the effort to try to get them to honor that price. You might have to purchase, then go to customer service and tell them you were charged more than the shelf tag says. If they won’t budge, you can just return it then and there.

    I've always just had them do something like that during checkout, even self checkout.  Could save you from an extra wait in another line.

    Yeah, I did that with some items that were cheaper with the phone app, all I had to do was get the associate to come over (I was at a self checkout) and verify that the price listed was for the store I was at. As long as it was the store, they manually change the price in the system.
    Actually that may be why people are seeing discrepancies, if you go to multiple Walmarts, but do not change the store you are at in the app.

    That would have been my first suggestion, except I figured they might want to verify the shelf tag price by sending someone to look and the self checkout monitor wouldn’t be able to do that, I assume.

    Yeah, but they'd still have to do that if you went to the CS desk, so it would still save you from potentially waiting in another line.

    Take a photo of the price.  Maybe they wouldn't bother walking back to check.  (The time and date of the photo would show it was taken 10 minutes ago too.)

    In my experience unless the price difference was like 40% or more they wouldn't question it and would just give you the lower price. If the price difference is more than they're approved to just be able to give you themselves they'll call a supervisor over.

    Target has the Delorean 10300 for the MSRP $199.99 LEGO shop also finally got it restocked. With a Target Red Card you get 5% off ($10) as well. which is about the same you earn in LEGO VIP points. Target is hit or miss with protective shipped packaging though. At Target I did a search for "LEGO Delorean" and nothing came up. You have to enter "Lego 10300" or "Lego Back to the Future"

    @dehnehsu it may be worth checking your local Wal-Marts for the "sale" price of $170 on the shelf, and you know the condition of the box before it lands on your doorstep.

    Good tip. I heard it is has showed up at that price. It's available online at Walmart for the full $199.99. The problem with our local Bay Area, Ca. Walmarts and Targets is they love to ruin the boxes of higher price LEGO by tightly strapping the Spider Wrap security cables cutting into the edges.

    It's also been available at Amazon for $200 for a few weeks now, although the ship date is a little ways out.  Also a hit or miss in terms of shipping condition, but it's another option if you really want one.  Thanks to a tip, I managed to catch it when it came back at the original MSRP on Amazon nearly a month ago, but haven't seen it come back at that price since.  Still haven't received it yet, though.
  • karritkarrit USAMember Posts: 711
    Looks like the Target deals at least on the Friends sets are all the beginning of the year sets or older.  Walmart's clearance sales had better prices.  I don’t know about the Ninjago or Duplo ones since I  don’t buy either but I did notice a Buzz Lightyear Duplo set on the list.
