5% Cashback at LEGO Store via Cashrewards

630

Pretty exciting. I've been waiting for Lego store to be added to Cashrewards. 5% back on purchases or 3% on their exclusives.

Cashback is ineligible if using codes not listed on Cashrewards.
Cashback is ineligible on the purchase of gift cards and when gift cards are redeemed (spent) for either partial or full payment.
Cashback is ineligible on purchases made through the LEGO App.
LEGO Exclusive Products are branded with an 'Exclusives' label on the LEGO website. A different cashback rate may apply to these items as per the listed cashback rates.
Cashback tracks to member accounts up to 5 days after receiving LEGO confirmation that the product has been shipped.

    Nice find, especially on items typically not available outside of LEGO stores/.com.

  • Enjoy and Well Played TA :)

  • Just an FYI its seems that Lego.com.au was also added to Shopback but with 4% back on purchases or 2.25% on exclusives. I can't seem to find what they consider exclusive.

    https://www.shopback.com.au/lego

    • Lego store items which are exclusive will have an exclusive tag on their pages, so hopefully it should be easy to figure out.

      • some items that say they are exclusive go retail after a few months, are they still exclusive?

        more clarity would be nice.

        • They have basically limited retailers only that can sell them but are still exclusive I would say :)

  • Ok now Mos Eisley is a no brainer!

  • This IS exciting. Considering lego don't do PayPal etc I thought they'd never allow cashbacks or anything else

  • Thanks for this post. Not necessarily a tonne of cash back but will add up quickly on a few big purchases. I'm new to the cashback thing, does "Cashback is ineligible if using codes not listed on Cashrewards." mean we can't use VIP points for a discount, because generally that'd be more on a large set I'd think?

    • From terms: "Cashback is ineligible on the purchase of gift cards and when gift cards are redeemed (spent) for either partial or full payment." So if you use your VIP points for a discount you will not be able to get cash back.

      • I wouldn’t have quite considered VIP points as a gift card but I suppose that’s fair. Wish it was more clear on the specifics in this case

        • After second thought it's this term that would prevent you giving cashback: "Cashback is ineligible if using codes not listed on Cashrewards" You need to redeem your VIP point for a discount code. I agree with you that it needs to be more clear hehe.

          • @melfn: That’s what I was thinking too. But they do have an alternate section for promo codes so I wonder

            • @OrbitalAxolotl: It's hard to say precisely without a store rep to clarify, although I interpret it as if you are using a third party code or paying with just gift cards. Surely they would allow their own standard VIP program?

              • @acAgenCy1: I’m just not sure if it’s LEGO or cashrewards who make the rules. Might contact them both and see what they say and worse case give it a shot and see what happens. Though in my experience the customer support people will probably have no idea.

    • Update on this, got a non answer from Cash rewards that was basically “might make it ineligible, might not” and LEGOs customer service is very busy and usually a bit useless so I just bit the bullet and made an order using VIP points. Will update if I get Cashback but apparently takes a few days

  • So am I correct in interpreting the conditions as excluding vouchers "purchased" with LEGO VIP points?

  • Does this mean that prices at the store went up the same amount to cover this 'discount'?

    • I don't believe the prices have changed from the usual, these sorts of things are fairly standard practice in retail nowadays.

      • I still don't understand why they just don't drop their prices instead of letting a middle man pick up 6% and passing 5% back to the customer. It is rather pointless isn't it?

        • Presumably affiliates refer them more sales, for example someone might have seen this advertised on cashrewards and spent $200 they otherwise wouldn't have. Or spent $200 directly with Lego for something urgent when they would usually pay RRP at Myer (where Lego probably get $150)

          And if someone goes directly to their site without a referral they pocket the full amount

        • Stratified pricing. E.g. like airline ticket sales, for similar seats they would charge different rates based on what the consumer is willing/able to pay. So they can capture the full sales from customers who pay RRP and then also gain sales from customers who are swayed by the cashback. That way they can still make full margins from customers who do not use cashback, rather than losing profits by discounting the whole lot.

  • This is great…but it only last until 24 September 2020.
    None of the really expensive Star Wars sets are in so I won't be able to take advantage when they get more stock in. Also they have no ETA for those sets either as I was told via customer service.
