Although the offer is not very exciting this year, it would be remiss of me not to tell you that this weekend and next you can pick up a polybag when you buy the Daily Mail.

The bags on offer are:

I believe that on Sunday the paper will set you back £1.60 so the offer might not be worth getting out of bed for, particularly if you have the polys already.

It would also mean having to buy the Daily Mail...

^ I understand you can now get it "round the back" wrapped in a copy of Bigg Juggs mag, just to spare the embarrassment.

Whatever happened to the promotions that lasted all week. Last one like that was in May 2015. Still, better than nothing

On the one hand I want that X-wing, but being seen with a copy of the Daily Mail...urrgh, makes me shudder.

I wouldn't want to taint Bigg Juggs by association - I do like the little lava slinger though

X- wing was being sold in Lego store for £3.99 a few months back so that's worth having. Glad I didn't buy one! Lady I know reads The Mail and she's loopy so that says it all. Buy the paper, get the Lego, cut out the voucher and send someone else back into the store to get another toy. Providing they've not marked the voucher in some way. Final stage... Bin the paper. Can think of a few good uses for it but best not to say on here in fear of offending someone!

Get them from absinthe, (that's what I got on predictive when typing in WHSmiths) and tesco express on Sunday only. Shame we don't get absinthe free as well, might need it when reading the paper.

According to mysupermarket, the Mail is 90p on Saturdays and, as Huw said, £1.60 on Sundays. Worth it for the LEGO. I'm especially looking forwards to this weekend's polybags.

I don't care for the Mail or any red top - they're all drivel - and will recycle my copies the first chance I get after leaving WHS. Depending on the branch, the staff will sometimes dispose of it for you so you don't even have to take it away.

Just left the "paper" behind on the counter last time they had one of these offers.

Would anyone be willing to pick up the drivel for me? Its not available here in Ireland...

EDIT : The paper is drivel - not the Lego! :-)

My local newsagents and post office has just been rebranded a WHSmith Local. Asked lady in shop if they will be doing the offer. She just stared blankly and seemed confused. Don't think I can be bothered to get bus to my nearest actual WHSmith and buy a paper I don't like because doing that would cost me more than what the sets would be if shops just sold them. Oh well.

Despite my opinions about the paper, I've always taken advantage of the Lego offers before, then immediately put the paper in the recycling. However, I can no longer in good conscience buy the paper just for the Lego in light of some of the outright racist bile I saw on their front page in the run up to brexit. If I really think I need the offered polybags that much, I'll head to eBay or bricklink and I'd respectfully urge others to do the same.

I know this is not the place to air ones political views or opinions but "be the change you want in the world" and all that...

perhaps the real issue is why does LEGO continue to work with the Mail, if you really want that change in the world, why not boycott LEGO altogether?I Know thats rubbish talk, but you cant put it all on the Mail(not defending them at all)

wouldnt it be great if they perhaps cycled the offers around.One year The Guardian(they could use the boost in sales) Telegraph etc

Update: my gran gets the Daily Mail for recipes and exercise tips, so I'm bribing her to get the set for me today :D Moral quandary averted.

1) Go to any Waitrose, shop for over £10 and get the newspaper for free
2) Go to WHSmith, usually right next to Waitrose, and pick up Lego
3) Enjoy

i missed out on the xwing for my son because i assumed "Tesco Express" would have it. #epicfail

Got today's one. Nice little set. Flicked through the paper. It did have some cute pics of otters so not completely awful!! Time for lego to use a different paper. Guardian, times or telegraph quite expensive on weekends. I know the red tops are a bit naff but at least they have the photo story problem page.

Anyone know if there is a mail-in option for the vouchers as with previous offers?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Don't inflict the cost of recycling it on your local council, leave the paper behind so that it has to be returned to the printers and they have pass the cost of recycling it back to the paper.

There is a mail-in option for the vouchers, as I'm having to take advantage of it for Sunday's polybag. However... Things have changed! Firstly, you have to have an official claim voucher from the store, countersigned by a member of staff there. No photocopies accepted, so no more people just buying the paper and not visiting the store where the promotion is being run. Also, the address is different - They're going to the customer service team of WHSmith, not the Daily Mail. Finally, you have to send them a 75-pence-stamped self-addressed C5 size envelope to get the polybag mailed back in - So no more profit margin for anyone doing the eBay thing.
