Both Bricksworld and thebrickshop (Lego Certified Stores in Singapore) are running a different gift with purchase promotion to celebrate the release of the Creator Expert 10258 – London Bus on the 1st of August 2017. Singapore Retail price : S$199.90. (10% discount for members do apply)
**thebrickshop is running the promo based on a first come first served basis for the first 100 sets at each of their LCS outlets (Compass One, Jurong Point and NEX) and will give out an EZ-Link card with a special print with a purchase of the 10258 London Bus
An EZ-link card is commonly used as a fare card across all types of public transport in Singapore including buses and the subway.
**Bricksworld is running the promo based on a pre-order basis (online orders to be collected at Plaza Singapura) and will give out a build of a London Hackney Cab (aka London Taxi) for each pre-order purchase of the 10258 London Bus.
In our opinion, both promos have their merit and are quite well thought out.
- thebrickshop definitely took inspiration from the London launch giveway which was in the form of a driving licence(see below) and giving it a local twist by making an EZ-link card used by most of the general public for public transport fares and Electronic Road Payments.
- Bricksworld chose to go with a complimentary; complementary pairing of a London Taxi build to go with the London Bus. Cute.
