Smart to have it, I would not have bought HH without it. Also bought a number of other smaller items like the new pencil cup holder and Lloyd ZX keychain, because of free shipping.
Total of about $400, thanks to "free" shipping. Are you listening Lego? :) I only buy online when I get free shipping!
I say that because select VIP members are receiving free shipping deals with different amounts of money needed to be spent. Some have received $49 while others at $99.
Testing the market. :)
I personally think $49 is a good choice, it isn't really that hard to spend $50. ;-)
Lego doesn't get the same low cost of fulfillment that Amazon enjoys, and thus needs to sell more in a single sale to make up for "free" shipping, which of course isn't free.
The other problem they have is that they don't double up on the free polybags... I actually placed two orders tonight, one for $88, the second for $192 for the HH. Why? To get a pair of free polybags. But now [email protected] has to process two orders, pick and pack two orders, ship two orders.
This increases their cost more than simply adding a second free polybag in when you spend over $150.
@legofantexas - did the same, 2 orders, a shame!
Has anyone been able to double up on promo materials in a LEGO store?
I was talking about VIP shipping since LFT mentioned "Total of about $400, thanks to "free" shipping. Are you listening Lego? :) I only buy online when I get free shipping!"
Apologies for the misunderstanding.
If you buy from the retail store, they will "sometimes" give you multiple polysbags for each $75 you spend, if you ask nicely.
I saw the haunted house in the Lego store and really like the color scheme. However, it does seem a bit overpriced to me.
Magazine. Not to excited though as this isn't the one with all the 2013 previews in it.
