I just love the small icons for systems. Makes it so darn easy to browse the deals quickly! Great idea!

Got Wii Sports Resort but TRU didn't let me use the $20 GC, they said it takes 6 hours to activate though when I came home and called the number and checked my balance it said $20 was available...! They charged me only $29.99 for Wii Sports Resort plus $20 GC so I was only taxed for $29.99 so I can't complain. Just waiting out the six hours, I assume they have a ton of Wii Motionplus inventory when I head back for my 2nd player.

You may not be able to trade in Wii Sports Resort without the MotionPlus, since the game isn't playable without the attachment.

I was able to trade in just the game and base was $17. Worked out good for me total cost for 2 Wii sports resort $100 (but I got +50 in tru gc, with edge and bonus 40% I got +25.50 in Gs credit for the resort game) so for about 24.50 overall I got the game and 2 wii motion plus if you subtract the second wii motion plus I kepts cost alone -20, it works out to me paying 4.50 for a complete Wii sports resort :D.

I was given a $20 gift card without having to be a Reward Zone member. Seems like everybody who wanted to buy the game was eligible for the gift cards. Might be helpful information for anybody still wanting to get in on the $10 gift card but is afraid of not being a Reward Zone member. This was in Gainesville, FL.

I bit on Wii Sports Resort @ TRU. My kids love Wii Sports/Wii Fit, so they will enjoy it, at least. Just have to remember to use the GC before the Sept. expiration date...

BTW, it is also super easy to be a member. I just signed up online @ rewardsrus.toysrus.com. It's free and you can print out a temporary card for immediate use.

i bought the game at TRU this morning... i didn't realize Wii Motion Plus was required to play the game... i thought it was just "compatible" for enhanced game play... but that's ok.. I'll go back tomorrow and use my $20 GC on a second Wii Motion Plus

the sword fighting game is my favorite!

Preordered 4 copies, got $100 bucks in GC's and will simply sell the games to family for $45, and keep the GC's. Will go back tomorrow and pick up Bloom Blox + another wii resort and get another $25 GC and have about $10 left in change from my other GC's and turn that into NSMBs or some other DS game. All it cost me will be about $25 bucks out of pocket.

BAMMMM!!!

On a non-TRU note I went to Target for Punchout + (Free-ish) Nunchuck. It doesn't look like they restocked for this sale. So the same 10 or so Punchout + Nunchucks that had been sitting for weeks at $65 are all that they have, I'd assume.

I picked-up my copy of Wii Sports Resort from TRU and talked the girl into giving me a regular gift card that was active instantly. I was going to pick up the Tiger Woods 10 bundle but deceided to wait untill next week just in case I get a coupon in the mail or there is another 15% off one in their next weeks ad. Plus my birthday is this week and my mother-in-law always gets me a gift card to Gamestop or Best Buy but I told my wife to tell her to get me one for TRU.

Picked up two copies at TRU and got two $25 promotional gift cards as advertised.

I asked the cashier and he said it was perfectly fine to buy a standard Gift Card with the promotional Gift Cards, he actually recommended it after I brought it up.

I'm looking at the receipt now and am a little confused though. Can anyone check theirs to see if this matches up?

WII SPORTS RESORT 19.99 T1

(numbers) $20 GIFT CARD PRMO 49.99-20.00
(numbers) BALANCE DUE 29.99-5.00
(numbers) $5 GIFT CARD 24.99-5.00

VALUE CARD PROMO 25.00


SUBTOTAL 44.99 + 1.75 (tax)
TOTAL 46.74


The BALANCE DUE part confuses me, where did it come from? It says that on both receipts (separate transactions).

You would rip your family and friends off for a good deal? That is really sleazy.

I was too lazy and forgetful to preorder, but I got the $20 gift card, which doesn't expire, so I'm happy enough.

The balance due part is the $5.00 you paid to pre order the game.

Whoa whoa whoa. Who said anything about friends?

As far as family goes, my moms side are full of lazy people who wouldn't wake up early on sunday to go get the deal. They still want the game, so i'll sell it to them for $5 less than retail and no taxes which would have been another $5. They're happy, I'm happy, and you can go cry in your cornflakes. I don't see how I'm ripping off someone who was too lazy/drunk to bother to go take advantage of a deal I told them about. They can always go get it themselves now, but they would end up getting a $10 GC and have to pay more than $45 bucks for it. Which they are aware about but don't want to go and bother with.

I could always just sell them on fleabay for $49 bucks. That would be ok though.

Usually at the end of the next month. So if you buy a game in July, the promotional gift card should expire on the last day of August. The same time span was given for the RE5 promotion, as well as the games they released a month ago (i.e., Prototype, RFG, etc.).


oh really? since i bought prototype in june so my gift card would be expiring soon? where do u actually check that at

It should say on the card. At least the one they handed out yesterday said when it expired.

Picked up my copy yesterday. Managed to use a $10 off $50 coupon that came in the mail on it. $36 and change* out the door with the game and $25 gift card. The gift card has Mario & Luigi on it and expires at the end of September. I don't mind that so much since Metroid Prime Trilogy, Scribblenauts, Beatles:RockBand and GH5 all hit before then. I'll be able to use it on something.

*$50 - $10 coupon - $5 deposit + tax

Got some luckiness yesterday. Went in to Best Buy to match the TRU deal. Instead of giving me a gift card, they just took $20 off the price of Wii Sports Resort down to $29.99. Had a $5 reward zone cert so got Sports Resort for $24.99 + tax out of pocket.

Then went across the street to Target to pick up Tiger Woods bundle (BB was sold out...thankfully). All they had were the bundles with a big $49.99 advertised price tag in front of it. Of course it rang up $59.99 and without me saying a word the CSR knocked it down to $49.99. Was returning a gift and got a $30 gift card, so walked out of store with Tiger for $19.99.

In all wound up with Wii Sports Resort and Tiger Woods 10 bundles (including 2 Wii Motion +) for $44.98 + tax out of pocket. GOOD DAY !!

That is generally their policy, although it seems like you had an easier time of it than I did. It went through about 6 people (and I started at Customer Service), and took about 20 minutes for me. They showed me the big sign up front which states they don't match promo offers, but at least they were willing to look online when I told them that the policy listed there specifically details the matching of instant gift cards. I used $25 in reward certs (I had $30, but it came to $29.99, and they wouldn't let me do it if the total was less than the cert amount. Wish I had known about the MGS4 guide drop, I would have tried to add that in to get the total to $30 ;) ).

Best Buy, OH Best Buy, how you seem to disappoint me week after after, again missing Xbox 360 games and any good deals... Where are the xbox 360 games? :bomb:

I wish Circuit City was still in business so it would force Best Buy to change its deal strategies
