One thing we’ve noticed about the LEGO VIP program is that it has a tendency to be tied to the LEGO Star Wars product line, perhaps more than all others. We need look no further than the glossy Black VIP Card first introduced in the hectic days of the mammoth UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) set. Every now and then, LEGO pulls some promotional deals of assigning double VIP points to purchases of specific LEGO sets for a set duration. These promos aren’t usually broadcast so blatantly by LEGO in advertising, though they can be checked by VIP members on their account info page at LEGO Shop@Home.
With the start of a new month, LEGO has refreshed its selection of LEGO sets that will earn double VIP points when bought. For October that will be a couple of LEGO Star Wars sets, in particular the 2018 LEGO Star Wars X-Wing Starfighter (75218) and Yoda’s Hut (75208).
There’s a lot of VIP points to be doubled with either of these, with Yoda’s Hut (75208) carrying an estimated 59 (118 when doubled) and the X-Wing a hefty 159 (318 ditto). The double points are in effect when buying the sets until the end of October, so if you haven’t gotten them yet, now’s the best time to add them to your LEGO Star Wars collection.
