I just got back from toys r us to buy Mass Effect 3 but did not get the $10 gift card. Of course the store didn't have the weekly ad so I couldn't confirm. I can't seem to find the weekly ad on the toysrus.com site for this week that mentions the $10 gift card for mass effect. Can someone point me in the right direction so I can go back and get my gift card?

I work at Toys R Us in the Electronic Department. I can confirm that BOGO and the 10 dollar gift cards for Mass Effect 3/MLB 2K12 are only for certain districts. These deals don't work in my district. I didn't get the 10 dollar gift card either.

Noob question here ... How does the 40% trade-in bonus work for MLB the show? Do I have to trade in the games and purchase simultaneously? Does the credit instantly go towards purchase of the game? And finally, does the Unlocked 10% bonus stack onto the 40% (thus making it 50%)?

Bring in the games, get your credit, buy your game.

Do I have to trade in the games and purchase simultaneously?

Typically yes. I say typically because it all depends on the employee you deal with.

Does the credit instantly go towards purchase of the game?

It is a seperate transaction and goes on a "trade-in" card (think Gamestop).

And finally, does the Unlocked 10% bonus stack onto the 40% (thus making it 50%)?

Of course it stacks! That is the benefit from being unlocked.

I picked up Arkham City for 360 this morning. I thought I had a $10 certificate for Best Buy (Premium Silver member), turns out I had $30 worth! I got Arkham City and a Smores candy bar for $2.01. Great day it was.

Similar thing happened to me. I wanted to jump on the BOGO Vita games deals. The lady at the counter hadn't heard of the deal. She rang up two games and the system didn't apply the discount. I tried looking for the ad online and in-store and no luck.

Luckily she price-matched after I showed her that the deal was available on the TRU website. This may be YMMV though. I live in Philadelphia.

What am I missing - I don't see the $25 GC online, or in a flyer and the guy at the store have no idea what I'm talking about. I was going to pick up a Vita

I had the same problem last night! i got lucky and found the ad on there website at the last min cause i was about to give up. He had to price down the vita to $275 and add on a $25.00 GC purchase. Cause there system doesn't bring up the deal at all and theres no way he could of just toss in the card

I wish there was a Toys R US near me. Almost 10 dollars in shipping kills that deal for me since they aren't Shoprunner eligible.

I'll just use the $10 off gamestop coupon instead , I really wanted Ninja Gaiden though.

Toys R Us is getting to me this week... now they say Unit 13 and MLB 12 are not sold in stores... Im guessing they are waiting for the sale to end and then ship them to stores

I wish I could order Resident Evil and Metal Gear 3D online, then choose store pick up at TRU (the one I go to just mentioned the deal is only online, so yeah.), but for some reason, Metal Gear isn't eligible even though it's already released. Might choose Tekken instead.

Does buying now and exchanging when those 2 games come in work?

I picked up the 320gb hard drive for 360 from BB. All stores within 50 miles are sold out so I had to have it shipped.

They used to but I just went and looked at their price match guarantee, updated on March 4, and it no longer includes anything that would allow the TRU deal to be matched.

Has anyone tried? I did a Google Product search and see that Best Buy has Reality Fighters listed as in stock.

For what it's worth, the $249 price on the 250GB Xbox also works (automatically) on the remaining holiday bundles in-store. Picked one up after I trade my old, 2x MS refurbed Elite at GS for $140.

If I trade in games to best buy can I use that credit towards street fighter x tekken or do I need to buy the game first with cash? Also I am still pissed last week I went up there and there computers were down so I missed 50% and am now losing about 50 dollars credit.
