To claim the free points – which can be spent on future purchases and exclusive rewards at LEGO.com and in LEGO Stores – all you need to do is create a My Nintendo account and redeem the reward by clicking here. You’ll then receive a code to be entered at LEGO.com.
Rewards through Nintendo’s online store typically cost gold or platinum points, which you can currently earn for free through the VIP Rewards Centre (synergy!), but the 250 free LEGO VIP points are available to claim for zero points of any kind.
It’s not a mind-blowing amount – 250 points is roughly equivalent to £1.56 when redeemed for rewards vouchers, or potentially more for physical and digital rewards with a higher value – but will take you halfway towards the new LEGO Luigi keychain, for instance. Plus, free is free!
Of course, you’ll also need to be a member of the LEGO Group’s loyalty program to take advantage, but chances are we’ve just described you anyway. If you’re somehow not a VIP member yet, head over to LEGO.com and sign up – it’s absolutely free, you’ll earn points on every purchase, and you’ll get a free blue VIP keyring just for joining.
