[USA] LEGO VIP Members – Double Points October 1-31 – Updated

Update: The LEGOLand offer is no longer being offered. Here’s the official word from Shop@Home regarding the matter:

Due to unprecedented response to this promotion, the allocated number of free and discounted tickets to LEGOLAND® Parks has been fulfilled. If you signed up and registered as a LEGO® VIP member prior to September 23, 2011, you will still be able to redeem your voucher during the week of October 24-30, 2011, provided there is capacity at your chosen park, and you comply with all the terms and conditions for the promotion as posted at Thank you for your excitement for the LEGO® brand and the LEGOLAND® Parks, and your overwhelming response to this promotion.

Checked my mailbox today and found a small catalog, confirming the rumors from the last few weeks.

Yes, October is Double Points month for all of you VIP Members! This is good for orders from Shop At Home, in a LEGO Store, or over the phone.

Some of the point deals you might want to take advantage of:

3677 Red Cargo Train $159.99 / 319 Points
4194 Whitecap Bay $79.99 / 159 Points
10218 Pet Shop $149.99 / 299 Points
10222 Winter Village Post Office $69.99 / 139 Points *
10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van $119.99 / 239 Points *
10188 Death Star $399.99 / 799 Points
And yes, for all of you who have been sitting on your hands for a month, avoiding pushing the “buy” button:
10221 Super Star Destroyer $399.99 / 799 Points

*Available October 1st

Clear some space on those credit cards, as this is probably the first of a good sale season! (I hope)

In other news:

In celebration of the Grand Opening of LEGOLAND Florida, VIP Members can get in to any LEGOLAND park (as long as “any” means California or Florida) FREE from October 24-30. You can also get $10 off admission for up to 6 friends and family members visiting the park on the same day.

TRU BOGO 50% In-store and online this week

If we haven’t given you enough reasons in the last few weeks to frequent your local TRU, here is another:  This week, both online and in-stores, Toys’R’Us is having a Buy One Get One 50% off sale (aka BOGO 50).  While I considered not posting this sale, mainly because it excludes licensed themes including Star Wars and Toy Story (our focus), I feel this is still a good deal and worth sharing.   As an aware fan of LEGO like you are, you’ll know this sale essentially cancels the TRU markup on most sets, so if you’re in the market for older hard to find sets often easily picked up at a TRU or non-licensed TRU exclusives,  here is a chance at a small but worthwhile discount.  Good luck!

[AU] Australia TRU offering 7754 Home One for $60 off!

Thanks to forum member LL918 for sharing this tip from down under.

If you happen to live in or are visiting Australia, check out their Toys’R’Us stores for a decent deal on the TRU exclusive 7754 Home One Mon Calamari set.  The set is on sale for $140 through Christmas Eve.  This is $40 off the MSRP and $60 off the TRUP.  Get one while you got the chance!

[US] Some sets on clearance at Target

Fans of Indiana Jones sets and other licensed lines (but not Star Wars, boo) should check out their toy isles at local US Targets. Forum members meeotch and Mister Ed have seen sets like 7682 Shanghai Chase and 3834 Good Neighbors at Bikini Bottom on clearance for 30% off.

On a side note, start keeping your eyes out, in general, for pre-holiday sales. Last year was a doozy for sweet pre-holiday sales. Great sets, both SW and non-SW were showing up at up to 40% off in the weeks leading up to mid-December 2008. Send me (forum tag: copyright) a PM or post in the “Finds” forum all about the deals. I will be sure to get relevant news on the front-page so the community can capitalize on all the sweet holiday deals right away!!

[US +] 7672 Rouge Shadow 50% off at LEGO Brand Stores & S@H

Thanks to forum members meeotch and Arkov for pointing this out…

At both LEGO Brand Stores and Shop at Home through the 25th of June, the 7672 Rouge Shadow is on sale for 50% off. It is a decent set, especially at that steep discount, and worth picking one up. Additionally, if you purchase $50 or more in Star Wars items at the LEGO Brand Stores this month, you get a free Assassin Droids battle pack. To recap: 2 x 7672 + 1 x 8015 for $50 + tax, originally $110. Not too bad!

As far as I am aware, this is valid at US LEGO Brand Stores, but often such deals spill over to brand stores in other countries. Please PM me (user: copyright) to confirm if this offer is found in your local international LEGO Brand Store.
