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 LEGOLANDÂ® Parks has been fulfilled. If you signed up and registered as a LEGOÂ® 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 https://vip.lego.com/promotions. Thank you for your excitement for the LEGOÂ® brand and the LEGOLANDÂ® 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

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

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.
