LOL, the DS bundle is alright. Anyone who buys a DS will probably buy one game right away, and might as well buy a $2 accessory to get 25% off the final price.

But yeah, the ad... -_-

so how does this work, say if I buy a DS, an accessory, a game, I'd get 25% off everything, so feasibly speaking, a 130 DS, a 20 acc, and for the heck of it, a 20 game, would be 170, 25% of that would be 127.5? Is that how it works?

Ideally you get a $3 accessory instead of a $20 accessory and you get it all for like $115.

Hey, I don't see the reason for the hate about the ad. Awesome deal if you're looking for a DS. You could get a ten dollar game, and a three dollar accessory, and wind up with the system for under 100.00 before tax. In fact, I may consider picking up the Pokemon system if they have it.

129.99 for the system.
9.98 for the cheapest possible game.
4.99 for the cheapest possible accessory.

$115.96 pretax is the absolute minimum for what TRU has actively in stock.

Interesting, when I was at TrU this morning for the B1G1-50% I noticed a much larger than it used to be section of DVDs, including a decent selection of Disney Bluray movies. They're in the middle of remodelling this store and the DVDs are inside the R-Zone area, which is a move (in the past they were just outside).

This COULD be a decent deal, maybe...

is elite beat agents down to $5 or 6 yet?
it's one of the best games for the system, but lots of tru locations still have piles sitting around.
would be great for this combo, imo

I believe your math is wrong? Adding those up and deducting 25%, I get 108 pretax. Still a little off from my 100 dollar math I had done in my head, but close.

From what I remember my store carries these blu-ray movies:

Bridge to Terabithia
Cars
National Treasure
National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets
Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
Ratatouille
Wild Hogs

There's a pretty good selection online also.

Not really related to the ad but does anyone know when TRU usually gets shipments in? My local store (Scottsdale, AZ) has been out of PS3s for nearly two weeks now. And yeah I'd just go get one at someplace else but I have $120 in store credit that I'd like to use up.

Guess who's going to Tru on sunday? ^_^

Been chomping at the bit to get a DS, but I wanted to wait until it was 100$ or less. Now I can effectively get it for that price and 50% off one game along with a "free" accessory. Nice!

Edit: Does anyone know what would happen if I bought a 40$ game now, waited a week, and tried to swap just the game (sealed) for another game? Reason I ask is because I really want to get Dragon Quest 4, but it comes a few days after the ad ends.

the more key thing with me is what the best accessory to get would be (not the cheapest, but something that has some decent use also cheap)-there are a couple 25-30 game I want to get, so I am set on the gaming department---just the acc.

You should be fine. TRU allows returns/exchanges on games within 45 days as long as it is sealed and with a receipt.

You would have to call your local store and hopefully they will tell you. All stores have different delivery dates and truck schedules are never the same.

Do TRUs still carry the original trio (Coral, Polar, Onyx) of DSes in-store, or is it entirely cobalt, red-black, and metallic now? I see that they have them listed, "out-of-stock", online.

Coral Pink, of course, being the one color a friend of mine wants. :/

In the ad there is a thing about 15%, 25%, or 50% off one Hasbro, Parker Bros., Milton Bradley, or Cranium games. The amount is based on the monopoly symbol in your ad.

Anyone know what symbols represent each % off? I got the dog.

I was just looking through the paper and saw this ad. What caught my eye was a 20% off grandparents savings card. It's for anyone over 50 years old and they get 20% off supposedly any item. Anyone else see this or try it? My cousin and friend is looking for a PS3 so this would be killer.

I just picked up one today, but after reading the back, I'd say it's pretty worthless as it can't be used online, only in store, and expires tomorrow. The CPN SKN# is
