Must enter promo code 952229 at checkout.

Apparently not free shipping even though it says it twice on their page :(

UPDATE:
Ajh says that it's possible they'll reimburse the shipping but it's YMMV. Still probably the lowest price for the game from a reliable source:

I have had this happen to me before at TRU with promo codes and than losing the "free shipping" on the item. I have always just placed the order and than contacted CS by e-mail and I always got the shipping cost refunded back to me.


UPDATE2:
Leenak on page 2 confirmed that they will refund the money and the order qualifies for free shipping!

Where's the free shipping? Tax+shipping is kind of killing the deal :(

It's not free shipping; as soon as you enter the $10 off code "952229" you lose free shipping

Ya, sorry guys. I guess with the coupon code it kills free shipping which seems wrong since they list it twice on that page!

$5+ for shipping plus about $3 sales tax basicallu nullififes the $10 promo code. Store pick up is not an option either.

I wonder if we can call to get the free shipping. The free shipping terms don't seem to say not valid with other promotions.

So I guess Toys R Us is no longer ShopRunner eligible?

Edit: At least anything I would WANT to buy from there is not, anyway.

This is the cheapest (right?) I have seen the game so far. It's really tempting to jump on the 42 dollar price.

Sucks the shipping and sales tax shoot it up seven bucks after using the promo code.

I have had this happen to me before at TRU with promo codes and than losing the "free shipping" on the item. I have always just placed the order and than contacted CS by e-mail and I always got the shipping cost refunded back to me.

I made my purchase and e-mailed them about the shipping. I'll report back once I get a response.

42 dollars is still a great price either way.

They do it quite a bit, depending on how many PM requests they receive and their current stock/availability.

no idea i thought they were supposed to???


It's totally at their discretion.


This is a great price so close to the release date. I'm really tempted but... backlog...

Everytime I have seen Amazon PM a TRU deal it always factors in shipping. That is why when TRU had MW3 for $29.99 last week AZ PM'd but at $34.xx.
