LEGO Minecraft. It’s a bit of a strange concept. Minecraft itself is somewhat inspired by LEGO; a blocky system that lets you create whatever you want, albeit in videogame form. But to bring Minecraft to the physical world, it needs LEGO bricks, and so LEGO Minecraft was born into a thing. And it’s popular with the young ‘uns, or so we hear.
This month’s double VIP offerings on LEGO.com and in store are two LEGO Minecraft sets. Purchasing either LEGO Minecraft 21173 The Sky Tower or LEGO Minecraft 21174 The Modern Treehouse will net you twice as many VIP points as they usually would. The offer is available until 30th September.
If you shop at the LEGO store even semi-regularly, it’s worth signing up for a VIP card. You’ll accumulate points on your purchases which can be used to redeem cool rewards or turned into store credit. Typically, you’ll get around 5% of your purchase back in points. But with double VIP items, you’ll get 10%.
LEGO Minecraft Modern Treehouse is £99.99, so if you buy this before 30th September you’ll get almost £10 back in VIP points. The Sky Tower is £54.99, so that’ll net you over £5 back in points. Not bad, eh?
