A new double VIP points event is on the way for the official online store, but what is it about this offer that makes it the best time to buy sets?
Anyone new or unfamiliar with the world of LEGO might be confused at the mention of VIP points. In summary, these digital credits are earned by anyone with a free account on the official online store whenever a purchase is made.
The more you spend, the more points you earn. These can then be put towards exclusive rewards in the VIP Rewards Centre or alternatively, money off future orders. That latter option can be useful when looking to get massive and exclusive models from LEGO.com such as 75313 AT-AT, though conversion from points to discounts differs between regions.
Being able to save on official online store orders is also what makes a double VIP points event the best time to buy, with the overall discount upped from 5% cashback to 10% for a limited time. That deal might not sound huge, but can be used on anything on LEGO.com, no matter how big.
In short, making a purchase on the official online store without a VIP account means you’re missing out on future savings, and those savings will soon be doubled from February 24 to 28 in some regions and reportedly from March 12 to 14 in others.
