No 1600 point digital cards at the TRU I checked. They had other values, but not that one.

Yes, matched it up exactly, down to the sharp corners (some have rounded corners). I actually went so far as to buy it just in case the discount came up during checkout. So now I own a MSRP points card. Oh well.

In case there are any CAGs near me, this deal worked at the Toysrus in Wayne, NJ. I made my purchase around midnight, at 12:05am so I'm not sure if it's still active now. This is the card that rang up $9.99:

There were two different types of card. One is paper and says digital code on it. The other is plastic and has the code scratch off panel on the back.

The store in Totowa NJ has only the Spyro's Adventure single characters as part of the $5.99 promotion, not the new Giants.

I'm going to check the msp card when I go to work tonight.

I was there just yesterday, wish I could have scored that deal! I assume this is dead by now?

Skylanders giants singles are still on sale. Combined with groupon and $1 filler =$2.50 a skylander. I now regret buying so many during the b2g1 at best buy

Wow, didn't know there were so many CAGs in my area! Going to the Rockaway, NJ TRU in a few minutes, will post what I find there (also looking for the $10 Wii games which is showing out of stock everywhere in North Jersey).

I work at the Rockaway Toys R Us. Let me know if the deal is still alive so I can go back there after being there all day.

No good. I saw they still had stacks of the MSP cards at the place and got happy, but the guy tested it for me and it rang up $19.99. Wanted to stack up before the Christmas sales, but no biggie.

Also, only the original Skylanders were ringing up $5.99. The singles for the Giants still came up as $9.99.

Thanks for letting me know. I really don't feel like going back to that place until I have to tomorrow. I work in R Zone sometimes so I've probably seen you there. Small world.

I'm glad I work at Best buy and right next to Toys R Us and Target so I can check things like this out when I see it on here. Thanks for the heads up OP, always looking for cheap MSP and seeing as there is that Massive microsoft sale coming up, gotta stock up!!


Cool! You must be working at Emeryville, CA!

Sadly, the best buy glitch was on release day so it's pass the return period.
