Decided to make a TRU clearance thread to help us all find deals at TRU. Deals are harder to come by at TRU than other stores but hopefully with these tips we can all contribute to finding deals together. Also, though this thread is mainly for videogames, like other YMMV threads, it is encouraged to post non-gaming items in this thread.

 

TRU Online Clearance (All Items)

FAQ

Q: Is there a way to track items?

A: Currently the only way to track is on the TRU website.

 

Q: Can I buy pennied items?

A: Items that are $.02c are not suppose to be sold. Items that are $.03c can be sold to customers but are suppose to be donated.

.02 is the one that is not supposed to be sold if on the floor.

 

Q: Is shipping free for online orders?

A: Shipping is free with an online purchase of $19 or more.

 

Q: What is "Clearance Blast"?

A: Clearance Blast is an event at TRU where clearance items are discounted by the color tag on the item and day. Generally during Clearance Blast events items can be marked to 90% off. Items can be 90% and not be a part of the Clearance Blast though.

Q: How do I know that an item is on clearance?

A: In store items on clearance will have a red clearance label under the item price tag. Now that doesn't mean other items aren't on clearance though.

Q: Can I check the price of items?

A: Yes, each TRU will have price checkers that can be used to scan barcodes. Once scanned, the price in that store will be displayed.

Q: I WANT FREE STUFF!!

A: That wasn't a question but TRU does offer in store events where they give away small toy items. These events are for kids so don't be a creeper and go by yourself.

Just to get the thread going. TRU is having an event right now for B1G1 40$ Off selected LEGO Batman toys. If you buy $40 worth of LEGO Batman items in store you get a free movie ticket to the movie. Ends 2/18/17.

No offense. But, this thread seems kind of needless. TRU rarely beats deals if you have GCU or Amazon Prime.

As far as clearance. If your IMS and PSC are any good. All this stuff should be off the floor for people to find.

When Forza, Dead Rising, and Ryse vanilla copies went to $.02 I checked 3 stores in my market. They had gotten rid of all of them.

Anyhoo, happy hunting everyone.

The same can be said about Target and Walmart clearance threads than. Online prices are better with GCU / Amazon, good luck finding pennied items or items marked 90% off randomly in store at BB though. 

 

Not that this thread is for those pennied items. TRU has some very odd national pricing for clearances. I found a few weeks ago some Afterglow Kral PS4 headsets for $15/each. I would have looked for more but TRU doesn't have a good inventory tracking system. 

 

This thread is only needless if you aren't willing to put in work to find items like all other YMMV threads.

It is random throughout the year but TRU will announce when they are doing it. Take a look at this thread from some years ago during that times clearance blast.

Well, I get to see the price changes of things even if some TRU doesn't have inventory of them. If I see anything good I will post it here.

I wish they would bring back that yellow, blue and brown tag clearance rhing. I cleaned up with that blast.

Also a few tips. Items whose price ends in $xx.98 are clearance. Clearance is chain wide, just depends on if your TRU still has the item.

Any item with a red/orange price sticker on the item with a discounted price is not clearance, and the price only affects that particular one. These are typically open box/returns/may be missing something.

If you hear that a particular item is on clearance in store, but go to a store and the price tag does not reflect that, bring it to a scanner. It may have been skipped over when new labels were put up, or possibly the store wasn't properly notified. This can happen sometimes if the store only has one of that item.

Ya that nation-wide clearance a few years ago was really good. I cleaned up on flips and other stuff.

I know this isn't related to the topic but I purchased a NES Classic today in Southern California at TRU in Culver City(6) when the doors opened at 10AM. I'm shocked that there were no lines or any type of news that TRU had a restock at other locations. I personally called Burbank(8), Hawthorne(10), and Torrance(10) locations confirming they also had restocks of the Classic with about 6-10 available depending on location. Was this on purpose?

Players guides for Fallout 4 and Zelda Majora's Mask are discounted to $0.02, good luck.

Dang. TRU is almost closed here, so I have to miss it. Wish they did this for online as well.

Someone on Slickdeals reported that they got 2 copies of Overwatch PS4 for $9.99 each. Might be a employee Fuck up though

Stopped at TRU first thing this morning to check on Overwatch PS4. They still had the $9.99 sale price sticker in front of the game, but it said 'Friday Only!' above the sale price. One copy left. I politely told the clerk that they still had the Friday only sale stickers on several games and she told me they'd honor the sale price. :) xbone version had the 'Friday Only!' sale sticker also but it was $39.99... looks like $9.99 on PS4 was a one-day error.

Man, CAG has been slipping lately.  That shit would have been posted early in the day on Friday back in the old days.  Now it barely gets a mention two minutes before closing time.  Would have loved to pick up Overwatch for $9.99.

Yea I was able to get to one of the two TRU locations Friday night before closing. Was able to snag the last two copies of PS4. They wouldn't let me get the X1 version at the PS4 price

Im surprised too, cant believe that I must have missed it, I mean someone had to post it here someplace.

 

As far as this thread, its a good heads up , but now Im twice as sad,  missing overwatch and finding out there ISNT a real clearance blast, like the last one with the different colored tags. :-(


WANTED: Old games- N64, Turbografx, SNES, etc. Paypal/or trade for newer xbone/ps4 games.
