Double up on LEGO Harry Potter free gifts at

A surprise second LEGO Harry Potter freebie has gone live online and in-store, which means you can now double up on magical gifts-with-purchase for the next two weeks.

We already knew that 40577 Hogwarts: Grand Staircase would be free with a £130 / $130 / €130 spend on LEGO Harry Potter sets from today through July 31 (or while stocks last), but the LEGO Group has also tossed a bonus freebie our way in the shape of 30435 Build Your Own Hogwarts Castle. The polybag contains bricks to build a microscale Hogwarts Castle, a Dumbledore minifigure and a Collectible Wizard Card.

You’ll be able to snag that by spending at least £40 / $40 / €40 on LEGO Harry Potter sets, and it doesn’t take a mathemagician to figure out that means hitting the higher of the two thresholds will net you both freebies in one fell swoop.

It makes the higher required spend for 40577 Hogwarts: Grand Staircase slightly more palatable, although it’s still worth noting that none of the new summer sets alone is enough to qualify for the boxed gift-with-purchase (beyond 76408 12 Grimmauld Place in Europe).

There’s always the option to grab a couple of new sets, of course, or even aim for any of the theme’s three direct-to-consumer sets in 75978 Diagon Alley, 76391 Hogwarts Icons Collectors’ Edition and 71043 Hogwarts Castle. That 6,020-piece microscale rendition of the wizarding school is about to go up in price by a painful $70 in the US (and potentially in other territories, too), so now would be a good time to pick it up.

If you do, you’ll see both 40577 Hogwarts: Grand Staircase and 30435 Build Your Own Hogwarts Castle added to your basket through July 31, or while stocks last. Head here for a closer look at everything the larger of the two free gifts has to offer.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.

    I don’t seem to be able to get the Hogwarts GWP, despite being eligible for the Staircase set.

    It’s not been showing up in the cart or at checkout all day, the great hall stairs show up once the threshold is hit though.
