Free minifigure from Shop at Home (and erroneous extra set!)

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I received my latest order from LEGO Shop at Home, and along with all the stuff I'd actually ordered there was a Series 7 Minifigure along with postcard-sized card saying "Brick or Treat," and that the minifigure was a special treat to thank me for my order. Sweet! Are these being included in all Shop at Home orders right now? If so, for how long?

Astonishingly, there was also a fairly large set included entirely by accident (!), 4438 Robber's Hideout - I hadn't ordered it, it wasn't mentioned on the invoice and I wasn't charged for it, but there was still a copy of this $40 set in the shipping box along with all the stuff I'd ordered. It would've been soooo easy to just keep it and not notify TLG, but my conscience got the better of me and I called them to let them know; they're sending me a shipping label to return it (they initially offered to just email me one, but our printer's been a little wonky and I wasn't sure the label would print cleanly). Ah, well...

Hey, I see I got a new descriptor under my avatar. So those things are just assigned by mods here, then? Heh.

Anyway... so has no one else gotten a free extra minifigure (intentionally) thrown in with a recent order? It's clearly a deliberate bonus item, and I can't have been the only person to have gotten one, but I hadn't heard *anything* about it until I got my order yesterday...

Might have been a mix-up with your order and someone else's, though that is a long shot.

Still, that was very good of you to let them know you got an extra set. I know alot of people on other forums would have been bragging about how they kept it.

I placed 4 separate orders with Lego.com this month. I have received 2 of those orders so far, and both have included the "brick or treat" card with a Series 7 minifigure bag. Even though I have too many of those, that was pretty nice of them.

By the way, kudos for the honesty!
