Does the OP work for TRU or did he just happen to see a sign hanging around their store?

Yes he does. And he's a ginger.

We can trust the OP.

Thanks.

If it hasn't, I am doing so now.

And for those who don't know, prim is pretty much the authority on TRU deals around her. As I said, I work there & have found out about more stuff from him than anywhere else.

I'm pretty sure that's how it works. If I recall from the other times they've done a deal like this, you're not going to have your receipt say that one was purchased at the full amount and one game has all the discount.


And that's completely fine with me. I was just looking for a way around the buy two to get one for $30 thing. If I could get the other $30 back from the $60 spent total I'm good. I was just wondering if they'd do individual returns for a promotion like this. Any idea if they do same day returns? Could save me a trip AND $30.

I"m really hoping this isn't a YMMV regional deal. In the past certain deals like MW3 for $29.99 were only available online and in certain markets (not mine).

My fiancée is gone all weekend and my neighbor/friend is working all weekend. I am thinking about just going to Walmart and buying both games I want for $120 and then Sunday or Monday getting the ones at TRU then taking them back.

Thanks.


You 're welcome Gertle.

If anything I'm just returning the favor. I've been around long enough to see you've been spot on with the TRU finds you've posted up before.

It's not fraud but it's a little sketchy to be doing it like that. The promo after all is meant to require you to buy 2 games to save $30 each. Not one.

YMMV, each newspaper may contain different ads. I got mine in NYC from the Thursday ad bag dropped in front of my house.

Retailer circulars are usually delivered with Sunday newspapers, although sometimes you can find the new ones in-store on Saturday.

September 2 cannot come soon enough!

Between the 3DS deal at Kmart, the B2G1 3DS game deal at Best Buy, and the 2 for $60 at TRU, I will have a very busy weekend.

Is the in-store pickup for TRU accurate? It's saying no stores within 50miles have NCAA 13 in stock for either PS3 or 360

No it's not. If you look around their site, it says somewhere that they only do in-store pickup for certain things and they will slowly expand the program. It is not a good gauge at all for checking store inventory.

Seriously though, you should be able to do it. You have never tried this before?

well, best buy seems to have some kind of policy of rejecting certain type of price match, and this isn't a typical price match with 2 product for 1 price.

It's a TRU promo though, not from the dev, so don't look at a sale equating to the quality of the games.

I just dont know if I should just pay for Gamefly for a month and finish off Max Payne 3 and Sleeping Dogs from were my Redbox rentals left off. Or just pick them up at the sale next week. If I Gamefly them I will try to blow right through them and if I buy them they might just end up sitting on my shelf for awhile.

For future reference, here's the page with their price match policy:

http://www.bestbuy.c...cat204400050011

While it's a bit old, here's a post from a BB mod on their forums from 2009 stating that they do NOT at this time price match offers for free items, gifts with purchase or special bundle packages, but that stores can make exceptions on a case by case basis.

http://www.forums.be...-s-r/td-p/63294

Hey bestbuyer23,

While we are able to match the regular sale prices of most items at our competitor’s brick-and-mortar stores, I regret to inform you that Best Buy® is unable to honor offers for free items, gifts with purchase and special bundle packages. Like TheLexMachine mentioned though individual stores may choose to make exceptions to this policy on a case-by-case basis.

Okay, I'm a bit new to all this price matching stuff. I live in Hawaii and we only have one toysrus. So I know the deal will go fast once they open their doors. I read about people going to Walmart, then buying the games, then when the ad comes out, they price match it and then they get $60 back? Will Walmart do that? Sorry if it seems like such a stupid question, but I'm just new to all this. If they will honor it, then I will do the same. Thanks again
