    Postby gabriellee11 » Mon Aug 01, 2011 10:00 pm

    I have a copy of September 2011 store calendar. I don't have a scanner, but you can take a sneak peak at this photos that I took. So, pretty much you will get:

    -Free Mini Airplane with $75 purchase (September 1 - September 30)
    -Free Mini Hogwarts Express with purchase of Diagon Alley (August 1 - September 30)
    -Lego VIP Members earn 50 points on purchases of $75 or more (September 1 - September 30)
    -Lego Minifigures Series 5 coming in September
    -Mini Model Build is a Scarecrow

    Thanks gabriellee11!

    If you look closely at the catalog image located at the back of the calendar, it looks like there may be another FREE Shipping offer this fall.

    hehe...it is last year holiday catalog.

    It says:

    "A New Lego Design Challenge is Coming! Last Year, the Grand Prize Winner was featured on the 2010 Late Holiday Catalog front cover. Stay tuned for more details about this year's LEGO Design Challenge on September 1."

    By the way, it is only 50 VIP bonus points on purchases over $75...not 75 bonus points like you put in front page and in very small letters it says it is the whole month.

    Sweet, thanks for the post!

    The free mini hogwarts express w/ purchase of Diagon Alley is pretty neat! Might just have to get one for myself.

    Well I just bought DIagon Alley at TRU BOGO! I wonder if they have extras if they would sell it after the promo (but no guarantee that they will have it). It must be a polybag right?

    And of course we have a conflict with the date of the Sept. Club meeting :( bummer!

    I would assume if they have extras, they will just run another freebee promo.
    Could always call them Oct 1st.

    Yeah TRU seemed to get the past couple of series about 2-4 weeks before Lego direct was selling them. They'll probably be at TRU in the next couple of weeks.

    Here it is. My store actually already have it in stock and they were giving away with Diagon Alley purchase because it started August 1. Even though they said they have limited quantities...I am taking a risk and wait until next month so I can get mini hogwarts express, mini airplane and 50 bonus points (I hope they stack).

    Was that mini airplane available at Target or Toysrus before???

    I don't fall for the free polybag giveaways anymore. Not unless they are a special minifig like the ARF Trooper or Silver Clone Trooper... The "free giveaway" polys are usually stuff that has already been sold somewhere else or will eventually be sold... example: I just picked up the Police Boat at Lego store less than a month ago for 1/2 off... they had given the set away for free in like Janurary or February...
    I have mixed feelings about new releases: I can't wait to see and get the new sets... but I can't figure out where I'm gonna put them or store them.

    I went today (Sept 14th) to use my 10% off coupon and get the mini plane and they are OUT of them already! They are giving out the small police boat....no thanks as I have a bunch of those. Will check another store this month. :(

    Boo. If you find a store selling them, try to get an extra, and I'll buy it from ya! =)

    I'll see what I can do, but I'm not hopeful about it! I really can't believe it is mid-Sept and they are sold out already. Bummer!

    I was at the Lego Store in Michigan this past weekend, and they were all out of them too. They gave me a Lego Club Max keychain and a Ninjago magnet set instead. Was really looking forward to that plane for some reason!
