July offers at shop.LEGO.com

Posted by ,

It seems that LEGO has worked out how to get us to buy stuff at full price from shop.LEGO.com by offering us an exclusive polybag that can't be obtained any other way. This month, it's 40078 Hot Dog Stand that's being offered free with purchases over £50 / $75 to VIP members.

And it looks like free shipping will be available on orders above that threshold for the foreseeable future.

Here are links to the shop: UK | USA | Canada.

It doesn't matter for me because i'm hopefully getting Lego Back to the Future Delorean Time Machine and Lego Minecraft on 18th July :)

Its good for people who buy Lego Exclusives during these promos, but I am not hyped for this promo :)

I clicked the link and it just showed a generic message about supporting Brickset; there was nothing about the Hot Dog Stand.

I'll wait with my wallet until the 15th, because with Lone Ranger definitely out then, then hopefully the rest of the summer waves will come along to join it on the same day (or the day the DeLorean time machine comes out three days later) (and yet another freebie!). Yes, HF, Chima and Castle, I've got my eye on you all! ;-)

^^ That's what I'd expect to happen, I used my generic links. You can still take advantage of the offer via them.

I think people who are hoping to get the BTTF set on 18th July are going to be disappointed. Apparently there's a mistake in the store calendar.

If the release date for the Back to the Future set is postponed it gives me more time to save up!! :D

So just to make sure I am correct, this is only available for VIP members? Which I am not at the moment :(

^ It will take about 2 minutes of your time to become one, well worth it.

I'll get my redundancy package on the 12th - splurging on the Lego site may well sooth the blow...

You have to be logged in to your VIP account to see the offer on Lego.com. FYI.

Hopefully it'll end up buyable in-stores. *fingers crossed*

Was planning to spend some gift cards to buy Orthanc this month anyway, this looks fun. =)

Am I right in thinking it's Brickset's 16th birthday today??

There's also a Hero Factory poly free with purchase of any HF set later in the month. I think the 15-31.

Makes me glad I held out on Orthanc for a little bit.

will these also work in the offline stores? Hope to go there next week...

I must be a total LEGO n00b. There is a way to get LEGO sets for less than retail? Bricklink is retail or above on most new sets, eBay and Amazon are the same way. The only way to get a discount, at least that I've seen, is to hopefully win an eBay auction.

Since Sheffield has had the PaB wall updated very recently, I filled 3 large cups and bought a few other bits to get the Hot Dog Stand.

I absolutely love this polybag. Very impressed with the monthly polybags lately.

Can anyone who gets one upload the instructions?

Kliq: sales. Amazon, wal-mart, target, and yes, even toys r us. Especially watch for clearance sales. Need to be careful with toys r us though. They regularly markup items over retail price making the "sale" price not as appealing as it may immediately appear.

Ordered my Orthanc Tower this morning. I knew the hot dog stand was coming, and I wanted that more than the free poster.

Kliq: The link to how to get sets for cheaper is right to your right over there. Have fun!

@Kliq: You can find Legos on sale you just have to be very dilligent in looking for them because once they are on sale they don't last long. Your best chances of finding the larger sized Lego sets will be harder to come by unless you are shopping on Amazon or rarely TRU when they are running a BOGO 1/2 off sale. But know your retail set prices when you shop. I look so much I know the retail prices on just about everything. Target and Walmart are good places to look because they are everywhere.

@Kliq: Wal-Mart is one of the best for deep clearance deals. When they need space, and are overstocked, they will authorize local markdowns of sometimes staggering percentages. In May, I picked up 79010 Goblin King Battle for only $49.99, a full half off retail. There were even 4 on the shelf. (No, I wasn't "that guy" who bought them all. You folks know who you are!)

Would love to take one of those Vampyre Castles off your hands legowomen1980p! What a great price. That and the Scientists Monster are the last two MF sets I need.

Love this polybag. Will probably purchase off BL.com instead though. OR I have a Jor-el or Iron Man poly to trade for this if anybody is interested or missed out on last months special.

I really wish this was available in Asia or in Singapore!
