If you're a fan of Harry Potter and LEGO, today is your Black Friday. That's because LEGO is offering the 374-piece Diagon Alley set for free with any purchase over $99 until 11:59pm EST November 21st or while supplies last. But that's not all!
LEGO released a ton of awesome Harry Potter stuff this year that will help you get past that $99 threshold. Just keep in mind that LEGO is running a double VIP points deal on the crown jewel of the collection - the brand new 6020-piece Hogwarts Castle set. The odds of a straight up monetary discount on this set during the holiday season is slim, so the double points deal is probably as good as it will get. Plus, becoming a LEGO VIP is easy and free. If you're unfamiliar with the Hogwarts Castle set, here's what you need to know...
LEGO's 71043 Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle set includes a whopping 6020 pieces, which is second only to the Star Wars Ultimate Millennium Falcon set with its chart topping 7541 pieces. You can order one right here for $399.99.
