LEGO Store: Free Alien Conquest Brick with Foursquare

Post by atmail35 » Wed Aug 31, 2011 9:17 pm

The Lego Store did this one weekend in August, but I noticed that they are still offering the deal if you check in for the first time.
If it's your first time to the LEGO Store, Welcome! Check-in and receive an Exclusive Alien Conquest Collector Brick! Thanks for stopping by, be sure to introduce yourself to a LEGO Store associate!
You download the app on your smartphone and "check-in" when you are in the store. You "unlock" this offer and show it to an associate on your phone and claim your brick, while supplies last.

Go to http://www.foursquare.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; for info on how to download the app.

I was hoping I could get one of these, but you can only do it if you have a smartphone, huh? That's annoying (I don't have one).

I guess you do need a smartphone. Maybe ask a friend who has one?

I hope a lot of people take advanatage of the Foursquare offer because it makes me think that if it is successful for them they will offer other promos. I still think the concept of foursquare is kind of lame but I'll do it for these freebies.

I'm going to the Santa Clara, CA store at lunch in a little bit here. I've got foursquare set up and ready to check in. I'll see what happens...

I just got my brick today at the Costa Mesa, CA store. Seems like they didn't have many left but it won't hurt to try! The August calendar said it was a duplo brick but thankfully that's wrong; it's a regular 2x4x3 brick.

Turns out I forgot on Friday but I went again today (Saturday)! I did the Foursquare thing at checkout and the girl said they were out of the promo bricks but gave me a sweet city polybag instead! Score. Its 30012, some guy in a weird flying contraption. Strange set but maybe better than that promo brick - more useful at least.

PS I got a Grand Emporium and a Creator Hillside House. Anniversary gift from my baby. :wave:

I just did this at the Lego store in Sherway Gardens (Toronto). They still have some available. They also have the Super Star Destroy on display. It's Huge! The minifigs do go inside, but it's certainly not minifig scale.

Tried it on Tuesday when we took the kids for the mini-build in Concord NC. They said they didn't have any left. The older guy behind the counter had to ask the younger guy, who I know for a fact is a collector himself. They didn't seem like they had their stories straight, so to speak, and I'm not convinced they really were out. Does anyone have a picture of it or an extra? I'm really digging the Alien Conquest theme.

They also were out of the Microlight mini-plane thing, but gave me a Kingdoms target practice instead. :zzz:

I got one last weekend at the Portland OR area store when I was driving through. The young employee pretending to straighten boxes and be invisible in the corner of the store acted really put out, insisted they didn't have any, and didn't even look to see if I had checked in with the app which surprised me a little because usually LEGO employees are really nice. But he came out of the back with one so I left happy :up:

edit: here is a shot of it in the bag
