After going to TRU tonight since my girlfriend had to get Pokemon immediately, I am not sure how good of a sale this is simply due to the selection.  The TRU here did not have Dragon's Crown or Diagaea D2 which I wanted to get later.  Their selection overall was quite poor.

Seems some games dont work for online shipping. Tried to get killzone vita and pokemon x but the discount didnt apply.


Love your life and hate everyone elses.

Skylanders "deal" typical mentality: jack up msrp, have a sale. Suckers

Best Buy deals have really gone downhill ever since lowering GCU price to $30

XBL deals are absolutely shit compared to PSN, but even those have been sucking

DELL is absolutely the worst online retailer for video games. Avoid them at all costs.

Aw, what's wrong...does an internet opinion about video games disagree with yours? Cry more.

Seems that even though on the web site it says "ALL VIDEO GAMES" the promotion is only for select games..its false advertising

Josh,

 

There was a promotional item in this weeks ad for a special edition Skylanders Gill Grunt action figure for Rewards R Us members who make a $100+ purchase of skylanders. This figure was not available at any stores on Sunday, and furthermore there was no protocol for stores to take down names/numbers or provide a raincheck. There should be a memo sent out to stores to remedy this issue.

 

Furthermore, when attempting to purchase a SINGLE video game, the $10off or $15off coupons do not currently work, and require an override. With the buy 1 get 1 40% off promo, a single game will ring up at regular price, but be listed as a promo item in the system, thus making the coupon void on an attempt to purchase just a single game.

Brother caved and decided he wanted to jump on the Pokemon X/Y bandwagon. Think we'll jump on this offer while we can.

Whelp. Bought both Pokemon X and Y for $69 after tax. Store a few miles down the road is the only one in the area to have both games in stock, so I'll be swinging by later this afternoon. Even saved a few bucks with this deal-- certainly won't complain about that!

Looks like you can buy Pokemon X and Y online now as part of the promotion.

Correct. Did it no more than 2 hours ago. I take it the site wasn't allowing you do this earlier?

Just got back from Toys R' Us with my copy of Pokemon X and my brother's copy of Pokemon Y.

 

I haven't played a Pokemon game since Red/Blue, but I'm about to open up X and get back into it. Here goes nothing.

Anyone have any luck stacking the TRU %20 off any Skylanders purchase with the $10 Frito Lay coupon?

Yes, I was able to do that and got the starter set for $49.99 + tax.

 

I pre-ordered so I also got the free Hex Lightcore and a free $10.99 figure (got Roller Brawl).  I tried adding the Tower of Time to take advantage of the buy one get one 40% off deal, but they couldn't get it to work right.  They told me the 40% was coming off the lowest price item which was one of my free items and there was nothing they could do about it.  After a little complaining on my part they got a manager who agreed to just sell me the Tower of Time by itself at 40% off.

Confirmed that you cannot use any tru coupons on the b1g140% deal. Games scan as "promotional items" thus rendering the coupons invalid had to ask for a manager and argued.

this feels like a scam lol, though I know it has more to do with incompetence than thievery. That said...pathetic. We should be able to use them on something like this. I should've known this was a fallacy the minute I found out that my first $10 gift card lasts a month then expires. Probably won't be able to use it on anything lol. Lord knows what other restrictions are put on these cards.

guess I'll stick to basic b1g1 deals and completely ignore anything having to do with gc or coupons.

the KGB had a saying when inflation was so high and the frank was almost worthless: "they pretend to pay us, so we'll pretend to work." similarly; TRU pretends to give you a deal, so I pretend to shop there and take the promos seriously.

B1G1 40% off doesn't apply for preorders :(

 

Last week, B1G1 40% off did work for Wii U preorders

My wife and I have been waiting to see if there's going to be a b2g1 free sale at the end of the month. If not we were going to jump on this. Decisions decisions.

Went to my local TRU and they had no copies of Killzone for Vita. My local Best Buy actually price marched the offer. I know it's YMMV but I just asked in the off chance they would. Picked up Wind Waker HD and Killzone for Vita. While there also got an Xbox 360 wireless wheel to give a shot for $12.99 Thanks OP.

Missed frito, but there are ones for about $2 on the bay

where is the 20% please?

and how did you get a free $10.99 figure?

Here

 

If you pre ordered during a certain time frame, they were offering the free figure as a bonus. They would have emailed you a coupon for the free figure to your email associated with your rewards account.

Thank you for the coupon link

If I buy a copy of X/Y could I then return the one that is not 40 percent off and keep the one for 24?

I think you would get $32 back.

First game = $40
Second game = $24
Total = $64 (return value of each game should be $32)

If I do the BOGO, can I exchange a $60 game for a newer release next month (Injustice Ultimate Edition)?
