That's actually a crazy good perk.  You could get the equivalent of 10 death stars for the price of 5 before hitting your max.  You could easily land all of the bigger sets before hitting the limit.

You say he still has plenty? >:D

Pete, if you can, try to hold out another month for those larger sets. Rumor is LEGO Shop is doing a 3x VIP Promotion in the first half of October. I'm planning on getting the Cantina and either the AT-AT or the Star Destroyer then.

Confirmed to be Double VIP Points, and lasting all month. So every $50 you spend gets you a $5 reward.

When I stopped at a Toys R Us today (looking for the Rebels 3-pack) I struck up a conversation with the employee who rang me up and it turns out he had already set up the bags of parts for this weekend's mini-Ghost build, so he gave me a bag and instruction sheet.

Not an amazing design, but still a neat little attempt to do the Ghost at this micro-mini scale. Also glad I don't have to go during the build hours and jockey for the parts among throngs of screaming kids...

I picked up the UCS X-Wing.  Last day of no tax on Amazon last week left me fiddly.

Wanted to pick up the mini-modulars at TRU this month but no way I'm forking over $300 just to get x4 "$20" sets for free.  I'll stick with the big ones.

Got the B-Wing today, with Double VIP points ending tomorrow at the LEGO Store. The clerk hinted that there might be some online deals for Black Friday.

Finished up what I needed from the 2014 sets using points and getting double-points:

Cantina
AT-AT
Star Destroyer
Trade Federation MTT

Would have been cool if the Slave I was out, but oh well... no new Star Wars lego until 2015 for me now...

When we eventually move into a new place I get to build all these, and it's going to be amazing - and take weeks.

I picked up the UCS R2-D2 and X-Wing today.  Having a buddy who works at the Lego store is awesome.

Snagged the new Star Destroyer today, the LEGO Store was having a single day of Double VIP Points. Puts me at $45 worth of rewards, and I'll probably snag the Ewok Village next.
