Vader Pod promotion

Update: Here’s the legalese of the promo:

* Offer is valid December 15-24, 2017 in LEGO® Stores, via or orders over the phone. Offer applies to Star Wars sets in the current assortment. Offer excludes Star Wars key chains, magnets, clocks, watches, books and video games. For online and telephone orders, points are attributed to the account once payment is received. Points will not be credited retrospectively for purchases made prior to, or after this promotion. Points will not be earned on any applicable taxes or shipping charges. Offer cannot be combined with any other VIP offer, discount or coupon. Offer not valid at LEGOLAND® Discovery Centers or LEGOLAND Parks. The LEGO Group reserves the right to amend or cancel this promotion at any time without prior notice. Subject to availability.

A slight update to the cancelled Vader Pod promotion that was supposed to happen mid-December. It’s still cancelled, but the substitute promotion is different for North America. As I said in my previous post, Brickset reported that the promo is cancelled due to quality control issues, and that customers can receive a 10% off discount on LEGO Star Wars sets instead. This is still applicable for the European market.

The North American market will be seeing a different promotion. Customers can instead get 100 bonus VIP points on all LEGO Star Wars sets purchased from Brand Retail locations or LEGO Shop@Home. This does not apply to the extended line such as books, keychains, magnets, and anything else that isn’t a building set. This promotion will run from December 15th-24th.
