Every year, LEGO is fond of releasing its advent calendar series that offers a bit of a LEGO surprise for each day of December up until Christmas Eve. Traditionally, LEGO offers three advent calendars under its most active themes, namely Star Wars (75146) retailing at $39.99, and City (60133) and Friends (41131) themed calendars both retailing at $29.99 each.
This time, LEGO seems to be in an early Christmas spirit with its latest addition to the advent calendar series – and this time, they’re giving it away for FREE! The LEGO Holiday Countdown Calendar 40222 is this month’s promotional set that comes free with purchases of $99 and above starting October 1 until 25 or until supplies last. It comes in 250 pieces that you can use to build and rebuild the 24 individual creations that go along with the calendar.
Like any other previous promotional, you can expect that the Holiday Countdown Calendar will be another hit and given that October is the start of the early Christmas shopping rush, it might disappear quickly. However, there might also be the possibility of having the 40222 available for separate purchase since shop.LEGO.com lists the set with a retail price of $19.99. There is no option of purchasing it separately as of this writing. Nevertheless, placing your orders for this month of October is a sure advantage since Double VIP points are up for the entire month.
