shop.LEGO.com March offer updated (US/Canada)

Posted by ,
Republic Frigate

LEGO has altered the offer at shop.LEGO.com today. Gone is the free shipping, it's now double VIP points, which works out at a 10% discount and is obviously better than free shipping if you're spending a lot.

- Double VIP points on every purchase, until 8th April.
- Legends of Chima Speedorz Sale: 20% off the first wave of Speedorz, 70100 - 70106 and 70113.
- FREE, Exclusive LEGO Star Wars Republic Frigate with $50 LEGO Star Wars order.

Bummer they split the double points and the free shipping this year. Think I will have to pass and cross my fingers for a good May the 4th

^I have to agree, I want to pull the trigger on the haunted house but would like to get the most value for money. Unless they do a free ship in April... =P

If you live near a B&M Lego Store, they will take your order here in the store and offer to ship it to you for free. I think that only goes for large sets, or if the set is not in stock. They have done that twice for me, but both times it was for a set that wasn't in stock. If the ony boxes they have on the shelves are not in great shape, you might be able to make an excuse that you really want to buy the set, but don't want the one(s) that they have on the shelf. YMMV on that one though. From my experience the staff in the store are always more than accommodating.

Anybody else ever experience that?

I don't know if I'd agree with 2x VIP points being "obviously better than free shipping" if only because VIP points = money already spent, and free shipping is money not yet spent. Seeing as cash in-hand is always more valuable than both "future money" and "money tied up in a gift card that can only be spent in one place" I consider it a wash.

Interesting. The U.K. shipping and handling is a flat £3.95, but in the U.S. it is a tiered price with a flat 5% for orders over $500 being the best "value". The free shipping is much more valuable to us then the double points.

Jasper, yes, we just encountered that problem today (two out-of-stock items) at our local Lego Store, and yes, they were very nice to take our order in the store and ship it to our house for no extra cost. It was a nice way to take advantage of the double VIP points (waiting for them to show up on our account) on items we knew were not available in the store.
