Note: You can skip the next paragraph if you now all about VIP points...
October was also double VIP points, meaning for every $1.50 spent you would get 2 points instead of the 1 point. With every 100 points you would receive $7.50 off your next order if you so wish, or you can accumilate those points to a higher value and use it whenever you choose to do so. Taking full advantage of the double points the order I placed was for the 10232: Palace Cinema. Instead of getting 128 points I got 256 points. I also added 40058: Decorating the Tree and 40059: Santa’s Sleigh to my order giving me another 32 points instead of the 16 points that it normally is. I had a few points already on my account and that pushed me over the 300 point mark giving me $22.50 off any future purchases.
My goal is to accumulate enough points to knock off some $$$ to purchase the new 10243: Parisian Restaurant Modular being released on January 1st 2014.

I was a bit disappointed that this Exclusive set come to me crushed in my S@H order. But Very happy to get none the less.

The back of the box shows you how both Exclusive sets look added together. They look neat and I look forward to picking up the second set at the end of November.
You get 3 unnumbered bags and an instruction booklet.

winter village sets that are released each year. I'm glad I place a second order in October to receive a second set of this while getting the LOTR Tower of Orthanc with the double VIP points and getting 372 points instead of 186 points. I cant wait till the end of November to pick up part 2 of this Exclusive series and start building my Winter Village nativity scene, and have it ready for Christmas.
