I saw in their weekly ad Toys R' Us has a buy one get one 40%.  All 3DS, PS3, and Xbox 360 software. Offer excluded on Skylander and Disney Infinity starter packs.


"I bought the last one yesterday SUCKA!"

There is a glitch that worked for me once, bought two of the exact same game and the 40% worked on both. Someone want to try it?

Just tried it with two copies of Mario and Luigi: Dream Team and the 40% off only applied to one of them, so it's a no-go. :cry:

Online; I probably won't be able to get to a B&M today, unfortunately.

I was looking to get a couple 3DS games but this deal looks to be just an average deal, judging from the full price of TRU's selection.

CAG, should I snag X and Y at 32 a piece or wait for possible other sales?

I have a good feeling there will be at least one other good deal down the road--I'm personally hoping that Josh has TRU do a "Buy 1, get the other for 50% off" deal like he did for Black and White at Kmart when those released.

Thats what I'm hoping for, I recall getting black and white b1g1 50% off at TRU. With the current deal I'd have to wait 2 weeks for shipping on a pre-order.

Don't do it on pre-orders. They cancelled Monster Hunter 3 ultimate even though it already was released.

Yeah, looking at the deal's picture on the site, it says pre-sells (assuming that means preorders) aren't eligible.

Doesn't mean they can't or won't have time to cancel it. 


so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

That or someone will have them for $29.99 each.  Thought about pairing Tales of Xillia with GTA V, but you're still paying $48 per game.  Also, for some reason, Tales of Xillia seems to be excluded online.  Buy 1 get one 40% off ain't that great when you're dealing with regular prices.

Excludes Skylanders, Disney Infinity Starter Packs, Kid Icarus: Uprising for Nintendo 3DS, Star Fox 64 3D for Nintendo 3DS and sale items. Must add to cart 2 eligible items for offer to apply. Discounted item must be of equal or lesser value to lowest priced item purchased.

 

It seems these are the only ones excluded. Should work on Pre-orders.

Might be time for Mario Dream Team and Luigi's Mansion. Dream Team and Pikmin 3 would have been nice if Wii U was included.

Anyone know if Best Buy will PM or would that be YMMV due to the % discount?

Possible, but not 100%.

Ad says no, but that never stopped it from working in the past. You could also start a stink and maybe get lucky. I think many managers would be happy to lose some Wii U stock.

Welp, decided to order Titanfall for X360 and GTA5 for PS3, so $35.99 for GTA5 :)  Let's see if TRU ends up cancelling preorders or not.

 

Changed my mind and get GTAV with Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD.  Quite a combination there.

Had actually bought the last copy of :3ds: Tekken 3D while I was at TRU last night, and went to another today that still had a few of :3ds: Resident Evil. Thanks OP

I recall getting Pokemon Leaf Green and Fire Red for $24 at Bestbuy when they released. Elsewhere they sold for $30. 

 

Im tempted to do this deal but these games I WANT on day one. I need X at midnight, I havent been this pumped for a single game since prolly Smash Bros.

Yeah at $32 a piece its not worth it imo, I will find it easily for $35 so $3 isnt worth it. I also feel we could buy 1 get 1 %50 off

Any chance of price matching games that are part of the promotion then doing b1g1 40%?
