    #40567 promo is live

    I just ordered the Starry Night set, which is on back order (it says “ship by 6/23/2022”). The #30434 and #40567 were added to my cart, so now we see how or if I actually get them. 
  • madforLEGOmadforLEGO Chicagoland USMember Posts: 10,533
    Wow, they actually still show the #40567 hideout as available in the cart. A bit surprising.. LEGO actually figured out there would be a large demand on one of their promos?

        So you didn't add a key chain or base plate, anything in stock they could ship right away with your 2 GWP? I have heard it both ways on different posts here but I would not trust Lego to put aside the required GWP for an unknown later date to ship when those sets come back into stock. I didn't think they ever just shipped GWP without any paid for sets. I really hope I am wrong on this!

    I must admit, I forgot about this advice. Hopefully if it really does come back into stock in a week, there will still be GWPs available 🤞

    I got a shipping confirmation for one order, but the order that has a set I was hoping to give as a birthday present is of course just sitting in the warehouse, so frustrating.

    Just got my #21333 with both GWPs, so it worked out this time :)

    Double VIP now through June 30

    Is 2x VIP points even worth it anymore?  I gave up caring about that years ago. It's easier and cheaper for me to get stuff thru Target per say than Lego.  I can at least return stuff to Target easily.  I live 3 hours one-way from the closest Lego Store.  Spending hundreds to get a $5 reward is meaningless.

    If you’re spending hundreds, you’ll get more than $5…

    I mostly just buy stuff from Lego that is never on sale at the other places.

    Same here, like as noted, the points do add up. I got a Assembly Square for about 100 off earlier this year with points and I'm not getting that from Target. Plus when it comes to the physical store, Target is not selling Pick a brick or Build a figure either. As for returns, the only time I think one needs to return a LEGO bought item to a physical store is if Paypal is used when buying online. Otherwise fairly sure you can get a Return label from LEGO CS.

    I live 12 miles from a LEGO store... I saw the double VIP, #76406 is in stock there... but it would take a gallon of gas to get $5 worth of VIP points. So I might as well pay RRP at my nearest Target (I needed other stuff there anyway). But... not in stock there, next nearest Target is 5 miles... So might as well go to the LEGO store, maybe hit the PAB wall too... Maybe tomorrow.

    Just got an email from Lego that states Double VIP Points July 12-13. I'm surprised they are offering 2x points so soon after the previous offer (June 24-30).

    Santa's Front Yard GWP is available again with $170 purchase online or in store July 8-15 while supplies last.  Not going to try to meet the minimum but if it's available in store Saturday & I end up spending enough at AFOL day at least it will be a bonus parts pack.  I'm trying to hold off my big purchases for the Harry Potter GWP.

    I bought the Adam West cowl late last night, to take advantage of the sale and 2x VIP.

    I've just learned it shipped, of course, with Lasership.

    Eff.

    You'd think that LEGO could offer different shippers or something, sure it may cost more, but if someone had issues with a certain provider, maybe it would be nice to be able to choose another. I get with companies that they have contracts with shippers etc etc, but it would be nice to be able to pick your shipper.

    Did anyone else get a “Oops! Something went wrong!” email from Lego today? It seemed to be a repeat of an email from earlier in the day, but I couldn’t figure out what “went wrong”.
  • jmeninnojmeninno The Batcave (MA)Member Posts: 1,069
    Granted, I could have paid for shipping via FedEx or something...but I wanted free shipping.  I had wanted to run into a brick and mortar store to avoid this issue but time didn't allow for it.  I know what the definition of insanity is but I'm hoping for the best.

    Not a deal, but worth mentioning if you have been patiently waiting…

    The mini Disney castle #40478 is back in stock.  Limit 2

    Well that didn’t last long.    Poof!
    Mini Disney Castle #40478 TOOS.   

    Maybe it will do the in-and-out of stock dance tonight.   I thought for sure there would be more considering the mini haunted house is coming out.

    These are available at the Disney Store Online, but at a $5.00 additional cost.

    Yeah. Dumb.  I agree.  But that’s probably going to be the new price for this set if it’s available next month anyway.  
     You can at least save the ShopDisney [email protected] costs by using promo code SHIPMAGIC.

    Got my sets from the Double VIP promo today.  One of the boxes had a razor crest microfighter in there.  That's an extra $10 set for free to sweeten the deal.

  • FizyxFizyx ColoradoMember Posts: 1,243
    This isn't really a deal, but as I was doing a quick check prior to the August price increases, I noticed that the Typewriter, which has been out of stock recently and unavailable at the $199.99 price, is on back-order on the LEGO site now, and still at the old price, presumably through tomorrow.  So if you were looking to pick it up before the price increase but couldn't find it, I'd hurry over now!

    I dunno, all I know is previous ones never appeared to be available via the US VIP rewards...

    I thought they were a trial run, in the UK only.
  • jmeninnojmeninno The Batcave (MA)Member Posts: 1,069
    There was a rumor out there that the Pirates pack was going to be a promo with a $50 purchase this month.  Wondering if it is an unfounded rumor...or perhaps it will come true...

    It wasn't for me for like 5 minutes last night. It would appear to be redirecting me to the site after waiting on the page for a while and the screen would just turn white. Refreshing the page just restarted you in the queue. Was able to get in eventually without much issue though

    I already have two of the Forest Hideout but bit bummed it's gone already in the US.  Dropped into my Lego store on the ay home from the airport yesterday and they had tons of them behind the counter. Guess I should have bought something big to get another Hideout.  I really hoped it would last for the ViP orders for the Castle online.

    If its really gone (and I hope someone had enough forethought to remove them from the cart until the Castle is available, but then again its LEGO), why am I not surprised? I mean who is running LEGO at this point?
    "What would people likely buy for the GWP forest outpost?"
    "Well the new castle is coming out"
    "Excellent, when it is due to be released? "
    "August 3rd"
    "Ok lets make the promo, with limited quantity as well, available starting on Aug 1st"
    "I don't think people will like that if they sell out before the Castle is available"

    I just added the Castle to my cart, and no Forest hideout GWP ..., now it could appear after the VIP only ordering (or it just has not appeared yet in the cart, and maybe there is a site issue where it will eventually appear), but doubting it.
    It is a limit of one Castle set right now as well so it should hopefully mean that people will have a better than average chance to get one in the next few days.

    Heh, I cashed in a VIP code and got the LEGO tin sign.. so at least I got something else, even though I had to give up VIP points to get the reward in the first place... Given what I spent tonight, Ill spin it to my advantage..lol.

    The Pirate VIP pack GWP #40515 is now available.  It says until 9/30 but with the GWP going quickly lately I doubt it will last that long.  Min purchase is $50.
