FYI if you find a clearance copy of Metro 2033 for 360 you can flip it on Amazon for about $80 before fees.

He's not that guy, that guy was much cooler. Smitty sucks and I've been begging Josh to get rid of him for literally months.


TRU story, I am cooler than the both of ya. 8-)

I have some cool (not-really-a-deal-stuff-unless-free-is-a-deal) community things planned too. Once Josh and I hash it out, I'll be sure to go nuts about it.

You probably mean their coupons. Rewards don't have that restriction:

Rewards"R"Us Members who are not "R"Us Credit Cardholders - "R"Us Reward Dollars can be used towards the one-time purchase of qualifying products in-store or online at Toys"R"Us and Babies"R"Us. Excludes gift cards, diapers, formula, photo studios, Thyme Maternity, Buyer Protection Plan, assembly fee, breast-pump rental fee, delivery fee, and shipping & handling. Value is forfeited if item is returned. If used in-store, certificates must be surrendered at the time of purchase. Only one "R"Us Reward Dollar certificate can be redeemed per item for online purchases. Certificate prorated among eligible items purchased. See additional Terms and Conditions.


It's whatever they send out when I purchase X dollars. Last 2 x $5 I received was told that the rewards certs cannot be used on video games.

It needs 2 million more views. Just kidding!

-More games at TRU! Whenever there has been a good deal, there is never enough stock to keep a deal going past the first day.

Honestly, when I shop at TRU, I either go there for clearance titles or occasional deals; it's a little farther out for me than Kmart. Based on my observation, there have also been times when they didn't stock games I thought they should have (i.e., the games were either too obscure or too generic).

Welcome back Josh! :applause: You are the reason I stepped into Kmart gaming arena and maybe you can do the same for Toys R Us. I haven't stepped in one in ages so here's hoping you can work your wonders on them. Look forward to what you may have in store for us in near future. :)

I'm pretty sure you were told wrong. The terms of the rewards are exactly what I pasted above. And doesn't this sound like the KMart thread, or what?

One thing that i hated when buying new releases at kmart was missing out on dlc that other stores would have.

Josh, try and get exclusive dlc for some titles. TRU has done it before.

So glad to have you back SHC-Gamer. The K-mart deals you provided us were incredible. Coupon stacking was too amazing.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

TRU definitely carries more market share than I had at Kmart, definitely something to work on.

Will be interesting to see what he can do with Toys-R-Us, KMART-Gamer was great while it lasted. The deals were amazing, but of course things frequently didn't run smoothly because of the stores failures'. Honestly it's going to be a pretty big challenge for him to bring deals at Toys-R-Us IMO. Their online shipping kills almost all deals, and their store (around here) isn't well stocked. They are almost, almost as challenged as KMART IMO (in terms of foot traffic it might be worse).

Toys-R-Us around here is at least in a nicer/newer shopping center, but their stock is very barren (although I can look past the old "clearance" stock if there are legit great deals on new releases). Hopefully what Josh is able to bring to the table can at least be effective in all areas in the country... and not just at certain stores that bother to participate.

I can't speak for it at the moment but I can confirm that the RZ certs did not work on games last year. It was a change that even prim4444 confirmed himself.

Biggest problem with TRU is that the stuff goes OOS pretty quickly since they only keep certain qty. on hand.

It may have changed recently because I remember trying to use it before Easter to purchase some Skylander figures and the register wouldn't let me use it.

Retail in general for the most part, especially this late into the cycle. It should rebound soon and I will be able to help out in particular providing context to certain stores that you think need help from an inventory perspective.

TRU is overall a better customer service experience. Kmart was impossible to find anyone working near electronics to get into the game case. TRU issue can be finding someone available to help you in the game case when they are busier. If I go to TRU I try to go during the daytime on a weekday when it's empty, but don't even bother on the weekend or even some afternoons.

A Video Game Deal of the Day seems like a no brainer. That alone gets me to check what Best Buy is doing on a regular basis.

I can understand using coupons or gift cards to drive brand loyalty to TRU so I'm sure that's nothing new.

I never even consider TRU.com for a purchase due to the shipping charges, so obviously that's a consideration. One really awesome feature that no stores seem to do is make it possible to order something from another TRU. For example if I am trying to get the last copy of Chicken Shoot 2 on the GameBoy Advance and you have a store that has it in stock, allow me to order that for purchase or create a process in which something could be transferred to a local store for purchase.

Likewise, there are a number of items that TRU may have carried in the past, with limited stock remaining company wide, but it's not available where I can pick it up. The first issue is finding out if TRU even has any stores with the product, let alone trying to figure out which stores would have it. These items are no longer listed on the website so the chances are pretty low to clear this merchandise.
