#11333133 TRU: $25 Gift Card w/WiiU, Save $20 on any 2 PS4/XboxOne Games / Up...

Posted by FrontBurnr on 09 December 2013 - 03:30 PM

These updates need to be more clear. Select Wii u games? Scribblenauts Wii u? Which one? Either?

arkham origins for only ps3? Why so nit-picky with the platforms? It makes me think that these aren't competitive deals; they're conniving ways to unload unsold/unwanted stock on sucker customers. Another example of this is the $5 GC with one 3ds game or $25 with two, because I know damn well there's only one game on the list worth buying at full price. You can get the others for much cheaper on Amazon.

this now completes my personal assessment. Sorry if you don't like it. I dont plan on arguing or discussing. This is from me to TRU, and I put zero "blame" on Josh. I know that there are corporate implications he must deal with, and that I do not understand. I've been a loyal TRU customer since Josh moved from Kmart, so I'm entitled to voice a concern, no matter how disagreeable it may be.

Honestly, I'm just not getting updates. It's sporadic. I'll get them in advance a couple weeks in a row than get in a dry spell where I do my best just to read the online ad on Sundays when everyone else can anyway.

 

Going to ask Cheapy to take Representative off my name; I'll still post as I see or receive the offers but I can't say I'm a part of their org or affiliated now with this lack of involvement.

that's great for you, but yet again, a huge pathetic fail for a tru retail location. Not sure why josh moved from Kmart to tru when the sane bullshit persists. Maybe the format Josh uses is fundamentally broken.

 

Just to reiterate again, I don't work for TRU, I really only act as a consultant. I'm pushing them for better offers and to be as aggressive as possible but I literally control nothing.

 

I do however pass along all feedback I see and try as hard as possible to provide a voice for the community to corporate so they can see the impact of decisions both positive and negative.

If you don't mind my asking, what did you do to win the GC? Was it a standard sweepstakes-type deal, or something else?

 

I run contests on my network a lot actually. Currently we're giving away an Xbox One and a PS4. We're at least doing 2-3 promotions a week.

Josh, the 20% coupon doesn't appear to be stacking with the infinity power disc promo of 2 for $6. It stacks with basically every other deal including the grand theft auto one. Is there a way for you to get the computer guys to fix this?

 

Hopefully you answer this and not ignore it like you usually do my questions lol. I know grand theft auto is the main priority this week.

 

Looking back, I don't see a 2 for $6 power disc offer. I know there is a bogo 40% off on all Skylanders and Disney Infinity single figures and accessories, is that what you are referring to? Shoot me a pic of your receipt to josh@frontburnr.com and I'll forward it on for them to investigate.

Any news on a B2G1 or anything this coming week? I have wanted a pikmin deal since launch and to be honest I wasnt thrilled enough with the mario and luigi deal either, I dont want some game that will sit in my backlog. Now disney infinity is coming out and I would love to get the three of them... I saw the Infinity coupon, and maybe im being picky, but $60 alone is still too steep for me, this is cheap ass gamer but all 3 for $120 I would have to bite on.

 

Yes, I've got the details for a big ad for TRU next week. I'm working to get it up on my blog and here today. Was going to post it yesterday but the info didn't come through all the way. It's a very solid set of deals.

Hey, I wanted to get it at TrU! They sold out within an hour though in my area for the PS3 :(

 

Totally understand, just giving you a hard time :)

How about actually shipping the ones people ordered last week for $37.50.

 

I did not know there was an issue with these, I'll follow up to see what's going on. 


Is NCAA in-store only? I apologize if this is a dumb question as I don't shop at TRU as much as I used to. Thanks.

 

Not dumb! This will be in-store only. In the ad you'll actually see a Prima Guide offer but since the guides are no longer available the Gift Card promotion will replace it.

Updated thread with NCAA 14 offer. $25 gift card with purchase. 

 

In the ad it will say a free Prima Guide but that deal is no longer in effect due to an issue on the guide side. This offer is much better anyway and I hope definitely sets the tone for a great year to come. 


Updated thread with Deadpool offer today and tomorrow. Buy Deadpool get any $19.99 or below game free.

Josh,

 

What is TRU obsession with the $19.99 value games? Do they buy more inventory then other retailers? It seems like every single freakin' week they have a B1G1 40% off or buy "X" new release get any budget game for $5.

I think they might have more older game inventory in-stores then competitors.  Based on 3 standalone stores I've visited in NYC, excluding Time Square, I saw many older games that many other retailers sold online primarily.  About 20% - 30% of games I saw in the display cases were clearance or value games, so they need get the games moving somehow.

 

 

 

Couple of reasons actually. To move through older, clearance games as you say but also, they have good relationships with their value video game distribution partner(s) that results in promotional opportunities.
