LUG Bulk is a program run by the LEGO company for members of LEGO User Groups (LUGs) to purchase bulk quantities of LEGO.
LEGO User Groups are groups of people from a region that meet regularly through the year to discuss and build LEGO. They organise and participate in group shows and promote LEGO as a hobby in a variety of ways. Groups that are recognised by the LEGO Group are able to participate in LUG Bulk.
LUG Bulk is governed by the rules set by LEGO each year such as participant numbers, minimum order spends and age limits. LUG Groups determine how to run each LUG Bulk in a way that benefits their members; such as voting for which parts the group will purchase, who can participate in the LUG Bulk and minimum and maximum spends.
LUG Bulk is a long process that can take up to a year and is challenging for volunteers to manage. LUG Bulk the App focuses on helping managers to run the process smoothly through sign-up, voting and buying.
