Mar10 Day 2022 & August Releases

March 10 is Mar10 Day… apparently this has been a thing since 2016. Myself, I am only aware of it as of today. However, I am sure it is a chance for Super Mario fans the world over to get on their couches and party. Incidentally, the LEGO® Group is taking the chance to celebrate as well. To commemorate Mar10 Day 2022, the LEGO® Store is offering a special giveaway. Going to a store with your LEGO® Mario or Luigi figurine and waving to the in-store Mario cutout earns you a free collectible coin. Alternatively, you can take a picture with the cutout to get one. This offer lasts until March 13, 2022, so you better get your P-Meter powered up and get to a store!

Get yourself a coin, GWP, and extra VIP points!

Additionally, true to the rumor in our March promotions article, spending $50 or more on Mario products earns you a gift-with-purchase. In this case, you get Fuzzy & Mushroom Platform expansion set. This offer is valid until March 24. However, what we were unaware of on the calendar is that purchasing select Mario set bundles also earns you extra VIP Points.

  • Super Mario Team-Up Bundle (both starter kits) = 1000 bonus VIP points
  • Luigi’s Mansion Madness Bundle (4 sets) = 1500 bonus VIP points
  • Mario The Beach Blast Bundle (3 sets) = 1200 bonus VIP points

As if that wasn’t enough to get you bounding over bombas, the LEGO® Group announced a new wave of sets coming out this August. You might recall, August 2021 saw the release of the Adventures with Luigi starter course. Subsequently, Luigi got his own line of sets with the January 2022 Luigi’s Mansion line-up. This August, the focus shifts from the plumber brothers to their damsel in distress, Princess Peach. Read on for set specifics.

Looks like Super Mario fans have a lot to get hyped about in March. Today’s announcement brought news of sets, gifts, and VIP points! Interestingly, these promos coincide with double VIP points this weekend. I do not know if you can get double VIP points and the bonus points from theses sets. Usually, there is some fine print against that. However, you can try. Happy Mar10 Day 2022!

Until next time,
