As far as the PAB boxes. They do expire March 31st. And interestingly enough, in the small print from the 2010 calendar, Lego described the PAB box as equivalent to a small cup. But I agree with others here that it "at least" holds much more. You can naturally fit more into a square design, rather that a round cup, and the top is angled up to fit more.
First pic is a PaB box filled with 1x1 round plates. Second pic is the same quantity filling the large PaB cup. Note: the flaps on the PaB box were closed flat, and if I had topped it off with something like slope bricks which conform to the shape, it pretty much would have filled the large PaB cup completely.
Just tried to find the email to double check it but cant find it so perhaps I deleted it. Anyway before I pull the trigger and spend it, Just wanted to ask the community here if they have an experience with having a deadline to spend Lego VIP points?
I'll save you a click!
"Do my points ever expire?
Yes, all VIP Points expire on December 31st two years after the year in which they were earned. "
Try it and see, if it comes without the poly phone them and I'm sure they will send one out rather than pay for the return (as the item would be included on the checkout page). Take a print of the page, just to be sure.
Ok, not completely, the hot dog poly left some dents in the Camel's box :(
We just got in a $400 order and checked our account and the individual parts purchased are being counted towards the V.I.P. points...
The invoices are also new with pictures of the individual parts that were purchased...
this IS good news!
My 'replacement parts' order yesterday didn't accrue any points. Mt call in this morning confirmed that I wasn't due any due to it being for replacement parts and not PaB.
The same parts available through PaB can be bought as replacements parts but the scale of pricing is different, points aren't given and there is limited as to the amount of lots/total number of parts that can be bought in one order.
There are two people in this thread whom within the last 24 hours have confirmed their 'Replacement Parts' orders did not accrue any points. I have today placed another order of which didn't get any points either.
I wonder if your operator applied your VIP number to your order in error (against policy). I can't explain it otherwise since Replacements Orders have been confirmed by CS twice today to not grant points.
I think you've been lucky. Try it again. :o)
Did your new invoice have pictures of the parts on it..?
I have never received anything by email regarding my replacement part orders if that is the invoice you are referring to.
When I place orders for sets, I get an invoice by email of which again the two 'set' orders placed last week didn't have pictures on their invoices.
