LEGO Points at Target

News flash – LEGO is expensive.  Fortunately, many angles exist for obtaining these building blocks at a discount.  One such place we do so is Target.  And it got better a good while back.  LEGO purchases at Target are eligible to earn points in LEGO’s VIP loyalty program.  This partnership, previously extended last year, now lasts through 31 July 2023.  Here’s how to earn LEGO points at Target right now.  But first, why are LEGO points worth collecting?

Why You Should Care

LEGO VIP members can redeem for a variety of items.  Individuals can redeem points for discounts, from $5 to $100, on LEGO purchases.  More interestingly, members can redeem points for LEGOLand park admission.  Many other redemptions exist; check out for more.

How To Earn LEGO Points at Target

Target purchases of LEGO earn one VIP point per dollar.  Online and in-store Target purchases are eligible.  However, the points aren’t automatically applied to your VIP account.  Follow these steps to obtain VIP points.

Step #1

Take a photo of your physical Target receipt or screenshot of your invoice.  For online orders, select the order with the LEGO purchase and click “View invoice.”  Then, click “Print invoice” in the top right corner.  Take a screenshot of the print preview.  Save the photo/screenshot to your computer/device.

Step #2

Head over to and log in to your VIP account or create one if you haven’t already.

Step #3

On your VIP account home screen, scroll down, ensuring the “Complete VIP activities” menu is expanded.  The big Target symbol is on the left (see above).  Under “Upload Target Receipt” click “Complete.”

Step #4

Upload the Target receipt image you saved in Step #1 by clicking “Select Photo.”  Click “Submit.”  You’re all done for now!

Step #5

Subsequently return to and log in.  Click on the crown at top right next to your name.  You may already see points here.  Click on the VIP account (crown symbol again) in the middle of the screen.  Scroll down to view your updated points history.  Points take up to two business days to post, but I’ve received points within one business day when I’ve submitted by early/mid week.

Add It to the Stack!

Even better, earning LEGO VIP points at Target stacks with all existing methods to discount Target.  These options include but are not limited to:

  • Target Circle promos
  • Sales
  • Normal Target Circle/Redcard Earnings
  • Purchasing with discounted Target gift cards

The Red Card is just one way to save on LEGO at Target.

LEGO Points at Target – Conclusion

Of course, Target doesn’t offer every LEGO set.  Many exclusive sets are only available via, where it’s more challenging to stack savings.  But with some patience and legwork, one can obtain a variety of solid LEGO deals at Target.  And a friendly reminder, this Target/LEGO partnership is currently valid through the end of July.  I’m hopeful that it’ll be extended, though.  How do you discount LEGO, with Target or otherwise?

  1. So my question is: What is preventing people from buying the $1000 limit per month at Target, claiming their VIP points, then returning all the purchases to Target?
