LEGO Store Free Shipping Includes PAB
I discovered this yesterday. Apologies if it's well known or obvious but I certainly didn't know so I thought I'd share it.
The deal where if something is not available to buy in store then you can get free postage from an online delivery applies to the online PaB selection.
I was told this in the Stratford store yesterday and did a quick order of some parts I knew I needed but was waiting for a larger order to make it worth while in terms of postage.
They would prefer that you've put together your order beforehand and have it in your shopping basket, otherwise the queues could get very large as you browse for elements.
I did double check that this was official rather than a special offer extended to me because of my natural charm (:-).
Of course Bricklink is usually cheaper, but for a handful of parts (if you're going to the store anyway) this could make a PaB order more cost effective.

Are you saying you can order from [email protected] PAB and have it delivered to a Brand Store to avoid postage costs?
So you go to store, order from [email protected] PAB on their PC, then go back to the store to collect it when it arrives.
But I don't think they want you messing around building up an order for ages in store, so better to have but an unfinished selection in you basket first.
There are actually more items than I thought that are cheaper from PAB than BL. Had a nosey through recently and found many, including some great bargains
When building up a PAB order, does it get attached to your user name? If I build a PAB order at home, it doesn't appear when I log on from elsewhere. Is this something wrong for me, or do others find that too?
@CCC that was certainly the plan, and how it was described to me. They let me log in with your own details - they must then put some secret code in or something to make it free postage.
My understanding what that the work in process PaB orders, are just stored locally, but once you put it in your basket that is different. However, I hadn't done that and only wanted one type of element so Ruth let me add it.
I have not tried putting the order together ahead of time as suggested. One potential downside I see is that you have to log in on the store's public computer, right? Even if you make sure you log out afterwards, there's still a little bit of risk there.
Indeed there is a bit of a risk, but my experience is that they'll let you deal with your VIP account just from your name or the number, so I think if someone really wanted to illegally spend my VIP points they probably could, so I'm content to take the logging in risk.
