Customers who buy The LEGO  Movie from blinkbox will get a whopping 50% off tickets to the LEGOLAND  Windsor Resort (up to 4 adult & 4 children’s tickets) and 500 Clubcard points which can be transferred into vouchers to spend with Tesco online, in-store, on fuel or exchanged to get four times more value with Clubcard Boost.
