Starting today (February 1st) and running through to February 28th (shame it’s not a Leap Year), cardholders will receive double VIP points on any LEGO Star Wars purchase – excluding the mighty 75192 UCS Millennium Falcon.
Because, presumably, they know the cardholder already has one and doesn’t need a second?
Most interestingly it looks like there is an upcoming sweepstake to win a solid cast metal R2-D2 minifigure. Regular readers will remember that LEGO recently ran a competition to give away two pewter R2-D2s (which closes at midnight on February 1st so you still have a chance!) – and then later revealed that there are still 10 silver, three additional platinum versions and a gold one still at large.
Shipping delays in Belgium still have North American VIP members cardless but LEGO assures us that online purchases will not require verification, and LEGO brand store buys accompanied by a regular VIP card will have the appropriate bonus applied.
Forum member CaptainGato in Florida reports that he received his Club 75192 VIP card two days ago, so US customers are starting to see their exclusive membership card arrive.
