The sale starts AFTER RE5 comes out with the gift card. So...you would by RE5 on Friday (13th) for $60 and get the gift card. Then go back 2 days later and get two games for $80-$20 gift card=$60.

Unless I am misunderstanding the OP since the sale seems worded oddly to me. Which I am...should should try and edit the OP. It should say buy 1 at original price get one at $20 off. I read it as....both would be $40.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

I just post exactly what the ad says. Basically buy two games that are $40 or more and get $20 off the total, and if you do the RE5 deal you would get $40 off.

This deal is good if you're looking to buy RE5 plus two other games. Right now, I only want to buy Star Ocean: The Last Hope, so I don't know if I can justify paying $40 - $60 for another game just to save $20.

But TRU has been doing great deals lately. Thanks for the heads up.

Anyone know if Toys R Us carries Tales of Vesperia? Would be worth it to do the RE5 deal + the $20 off to get Tales and Star Ocean for $40 each.

they do, but id recommend star ocean over tales of vesparia... you can pick up tales for about 30.00 all day long on ebay.

Man, the money I'm saving being a CAG is huge.

Here's my plan

Buy re5 and get 20gc on fri.
Buy sf4 and valkyria chronicles. Get 20 dollar off plus 20 more using the GC.

And return the sealed copy of sf4 at target where I saved the receipt. When I bought it last
Month.

60 + 60 + 60 - 20 - 20 - 60 = 80 dollar for full priced games.

I think you're miscalculating. You're not taking into account that you already bought SF4 so techinically you bought SF4 twice.

He's also returning his copy, thus they negate each other basically.

yea but he has -60 in his calculation. Thats why it looks like hes paying 80 for 3 new games.

nice fraud ... stores really need to start putting some type of their own lables on the games to keep people from doing this..

maybe use something that could only been seen under a certain type of light the store has... THe sticker glows a certain color they know its theres. If not they should have the right to call the cops (or at least ban your ass from the store)

cause your trying to rip offf the store


about the Return and keep the Gift card.. Dont even get me started on that cause the idoits who work at TRU will never understand how a gift card works and will be ripped off so many times its not funnuy


I went few months back when soul bubbles and other games came with a 10 buck gift card.... well one of the other games was a dinousar game i think battle of the giants

well i did not need the game and i take it back..... The person working the return counter credits my credit card back 30 bucks and im trying to tell them i shold only get credit back 20 since they would not take the gift card back. worker stands there for 10 mins like they dont even understand english... and i finally ask to speak to a manager and they act the same why after i tell them everything. About another 10 mins goes by and the manager looks at me and says

Just keep the extra 10....... just sad how they cant figure it out.. same thing happens when you get a 20% off total order coupons ... They refund the entire 100% instead of the 20% off bill
WOOOO I STINK

How is this fraud? The poster is not misrepresenting the copy of SF4 to any store.

From what I understand, they buy RE5 + 20GC. They use the GC to get SF4 and VC for an additional $80+GC. They take the new, unused copy of SF4 where they are in their right to return to Target as they have a valid receipt. No store is being taken advantage of here.

I'm really confused about the morals here. I can see it being fraud if he returns the TRU copy to a store he didnt buy it from to get credit from that store, but that's not what he's doing. He bought SF4 at Target for $60, he found out he could get it cheaper somewhere else after he had already opened the Target copy. So he is returning the TRU copy of SF4 to Target with his Target receipt. Target is not losing out in any way, its no different than if he had returned his Target copy for a full refund, and neither is Toys R Us. I've seen plenty of people suggest doing things like this many times without anyone mentioning fraud, so what's the deal with the fraud talk now?

Will this work?

Buy RE5 and keep it and the GC.

Buy Madworld(or other game that costs above 40 dollars) on Sunday, use 20 dollars off on dead space.

so dead space price is currently at: 30 dollars(didn't EA slash 10 dollars off the pice?)

Use RE5 GC on Dead space

Dead Space current price: 10 dollars!

return Madworld(or other game that costs above 40 dollars)

get RE5 and dead space for 70 dollars(+ tax)!

Both games have to be $39.99 of more, also it takes $10 off the price of each I'm looking at a receipt from Christmas presents when they had the same sale. Littlebigplanet and Prince Of Persia, each rang up at $49.99 after the Buy 2 over $39.99 get $20 off promo. Sorry for bursting your bubble, but better to know now than wait and find out then.

tru usually does it so its lesser or equal value.

so if u buy madworld for 40$ and deadspace for 60$ they'll take 20$ off madworld.

Well Target is losing a sale of SF IV at $60 that was made in the past before a better deal showed up... They may then not be able to get rid of their entire stock at that price. It's not fraud. However, Target is losing out.

so dead space price is currently at: 30 dollars(didn't EA slash 10 dollars off the pice?)


Since when is Dead Space $30? EA slashed the price from $60 to $50.

try a gift receipt


If trying to return a game to TRU with a gift receipt to try and keep the GC, chances are it's a no go. This also affects store credit exchanges.

TRU has changed how they ring up promotional deals and this is reflected when you use gift receipts. When it comes to GC, TRU now discounts the game upfront and charges you the amount for the GC. So if you got in on the Killzone2 deal last week, look at your receipt. While you still paid 59.99+tax and got the $10 GC, the receipt shows the game at 49.99 and $10 for a $10 GC. When you take the game back, TRU automatically defaults the game value to 49.99 unless you have the GC that came with it.

Even if you give the game away as a gift, they will only honor 49.99 as the exchange value. I've seen customer service do this now as normal policy.

so if you bought 2 games that is $50 each.
Which is $100 total, they take $20 off 1 game. so that is. $50 + $30.
When you return the $50 game, how much would you get back?
$50 dollars or would they only give you $30 because of the minus -$20
Im so confused lol.

*edit* i kinda get it now after the guy above me posted.
So basically, if you returned any of the 2 games at the same price you bought it yet. minus the $20. You get the lowest value back then eh? lol unless i'm wrong again

damn, that does make sense. :(

thanks for warning me ahead of time....

Oh well. At least I'll get the $20 g.c. to use on something.... maybe the next COD?
