already ran out of vip set?
Nope, it's still there although I have to go to checkout to see it appear in my cart.
If I would have known Caveman and Lloyd promo would have continued, I would have bought the Friends sets during double VIP promo.
Not a big loss though.

Saturn V is out of stock, can't add to cart.

Tried with BB8, have to login (VIP account) to see the VIP set added.
Oh, it only shows up in the cart, not while you are adding it to the bag. That's weird, they usually show up as soon as you add something to the bag. Oh, well.

That made return and repurchase really tempting if they are giving out three bonuses in store as well.

I wonder if I can "return"/adjust in store for the double VIP and freebie bonus if I bring the fully built rocket :)
Kudos to Lego for packing protection for the cave-couple set and Lloyd minifig

Tempted to buy Winter Village Station + 3 seasonal sets to get over 125$, but do I really want a 2nd Lloyd and a 3rd Caveman set?

I tried to sell a few extra sets on kjiji before and all I could get are low offers from lowballers,so I think it's a waste of time if your time has any value.

No VIP set yet, but I have 1 Lloyd and 2 Caveset already. I wish they were giving away different promotions.

I may try to trade them via Kijiji. I want that Batman Pod, the Fountain promo of last year (40221) or some seasonal sets I missed.

Best strategy would be to sit on the sets until they are out of production, then sell. It'll sell, just may take some time.

I'm sure old sets gain some value, but generally is not that much and kijiji is a horrible place where deal!!!
for example I'm monitoring my dream set, the star wars ucs x wing.
everyone has it on sale for 350 (and over). no one can sell it! they repeat their ads for months...always same sellers.
I was able to score last week 2 brand new sealed star wars set on kijiji : u wing (75155) and the new kylo rens tie (75179) for 110 in total. I think not bad price at all. she had to lower price multiple times because she was getting only ridicules offers!
mine was the best!!!

Man, I bought my sets at the physical retail Lego store, not knowing Lloyd and the caveman are still available when you shop online. I might just re-order online and return my first order to the physical store.

I once sell stuffs in Kijiji. People tried to price match with Amazon Face With Tears Of Joy
I told them to buy it then from Amazon it will save them more.
