Christmas card from TLG

This morning at work I was surprised to receive a Christmas card from the Lego VIP programme.

It was a nice little surprise (and the first card I have received aside from one from my mum!) But I was disappointed there was no coupon inside ;-)

Anyone else get one?

    Just got one as well, figured there would've been something a little special in there but still put a smile on my face! (it doesn't take much!!)

    I spend so much, they could at least have thrown in a solid gold Darth Vader minifig or something...

    Apparently I have one at home too.

    Oh wait, that was from Christmas 1981. The last time I received anything from them.

    Yep, one turned up this morning. With 'VIP' on the front I thought it was coupons for Slave 1 and Detective's Office! Oh well.

    They are nothing special. I got one. :-)

    If anyone wants it, I'll exchange it for a Valentine's keychain. I'll cross my name out and add yours in my neatest handwriting. With a crayon.

    ^ No deal - clearly they give these out to just about anyone, where as the valentines keychains were just for us special few! ;-p

    ^ Yup, @cheshirecat‌, they really do give them out to anyone, since mine arrived this morning....;-P
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 17,504
    Well it turns out I am a somebody ... I got two. One at home, one at work. Or maybe they knew I was going to throw away the first one.

    No Christmas greetings for me yet. However I did feel the love a few years ago.

    I finally got something from them for being a VIP member (about time).

    They also included a $10 gift card for being in the top 10% of customers at their store. A nice add-on and one that I'll be sure to use soon!

    Mine arrived today.

    They may be a bit premature though with the ©20114 on the back, lol.

    I just registered the VIP after two years so imagine I could have gotten these freebies and deals :/

    You and me are going to fall out LEGO.
  • legomattlegomatt Member Posts: 2,546
    I didn't get a valentine fig, event invite, pre-sale slot, vip bonus, discount, or a christmas card from Lego... but after watching The Hobbit:Bo5A yesterday at the cinema, I think I've experienced a 2-hour long middle-finger from Peter Jackson. (They say he didn't have a cameo-role in this one, but I think he shone his arse at me for the whole 144mins). :oD

    Lego is forgiven.

    I now have other enemies in much greater need of a thorough thrashing. ;oP

    Do you have marketing preferences turned on or off?
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 17,504
    Wow, that is a pretty huge gift.

    @CCC nah, it's ok.
    I was just exaggerating whatever list of events i could think of (probably got some wrong) purely for the comedic effect by comparison. :o)

    I helped out in the Minecraft area at Brick2014 and Julie, the Lego executive running the display said we would get a little something from Denmark as a thank you.

    Well today I had a knock at the door and the DHL guy handed me a large parcel which contained:

    1 Christmas Card and Business Card minifig
    3 Series 13 Minifigs
    3 Creator Xmas baubles
    4 Toys R Us Bricktober Minibuilds #40180 - #40183
    5 Minecraft Sets including the Mine #21118
    6 Animals and Birds from the seasonal series this year #40085 - #40093.

    To say I am blown away would be an understatement!

    I would like to thank Julie and the Lego Group for this present.

    I would complain that I did not get one, but it is not like that is going to reduce my purchasing from LEGO or of LEGO from other retailers. My want to buy a house will likely do that. I mean what is the alternative, buying Megablock? no thanks.
