haha, shipping was $1 more than my entire order. So in essence shipping kills it.

 

2 more pieces to the collection (the other 3 were just filler).

 

Thanks.

Add something to make it over $20 and shipping is free.

If you're really thrifty, then return the item you added to the store. (Though this is rather devious)

I just want to find a cheap Wreck-It-Ralph, but it's so hard to find stand alone. Most of the sale ones are out of stock anyway, so good luck finding enough to take advantage of this deal...

Such a sound business model, I bet they'll be around forever.

They way over stocked on these figures like everyone else.

Now they're just trying to clear inventory, which in some stores dates back to the original release "Spyro's Adventures" characters from 2011.....

 

Writing that, just filled me with memories... dammit.

The fact they filed for bankruptcy really hits me in the childhood and memories....

C'mon glitches! :whee: jk
No doubt they lost a ton of $ the last time this promo was active a few wks ago which def isn't good for accounting purposes. Ppl were going crazy getting tablets, consoles, Legos, & etc as the free items...last major event before they filed bankruptcy =( I wasn't able to score anything tho lol

Glitch going on where you can pay for the first fig in your cart and get the rest free, even if they are higher priced.

Got 15 figures for $17, some are repeats but for $1 and change per figure brand new, who cares. 

Threw in a game that was on sale to put it at $34 for the free shipping. Thanks for posting!


I'll have an E please, Bob.

this worked for me btw.

 

For your 1st selection, choose the cheapest figure. $3.99, then each figure after drops to $0.00 so long as you stay w/in the promo. Normally I know they charge you the highest price, but I was able to get Nemo down from $14.99 to $0.00 and paid $4.99 for the promo because...Han Solo, that's why.

This deal makes me wish that they had more of the Disney figures. I have all the Marvel and Star Wars characters and light up variants already.

Okay, maybe not.

 

Just got my email confirmation and they did something funky. While it's not $14.99 + sh/hd & tax, it's certainly not $4.99...ymmv.

Out of curiosity, was this the "we received your order" email or the shipping/pick up confirmation email where the price changed?

It's not the "we received your order" email, but it doesn't seem to be an actual shipping confirmation either. The subject line is: "Toys R Us / Babies R Us Order Confirmation # XXXXXXXXXX". Inside it says that it confirms that the order is processing.

I was overcharged $50 on a $30 order last time they did this promo. Had to dispute the charges with chase to get the money back. Never again TRU, the way you mange your company, you can go bankrupt. I'm done buying thru their website!

Seriously though, TRU's website sucks and their mobile site is worse. I'm frequently stuck while so unnecessarily long JavaScript runs. You'd think theyre mining for bitcoins on your local browser..

Interesting. I didn't get that email, I only got the "we received your order" one but I did about half of it for store pick-up so maybe that's the difference?  The total in that email was correct though and so far the paypal total is also reflecting the website total.

After hearing the horror stories last time I intentionally used paypal and saved my receipt from the site as a PDF as proof for what they charged (plus the email they sent confirming the order) so hopefully won't have any issue getting PayPal to only charge original price if that happens.

At what point is this not a deal yet a normal occurrence?

This happens every other week. Now it isn't even news, it's common sense.

Right, that's just one of the sales they have been circulating for months, another week be buy a starter pack and get some figures free and a week later half price on starter pack... and repeat... until they help Activision clear out all overstock I think.

Thanks Op. Skylanders would be the only thing for me here. I already have the entire Infinity figure set (excluding promo d23 mickey figure/disc and alternate vader). Also completed my Infinity disc collection last year. I have quite a few skylanders but never really got into them. Nice deal.

 

Edit: Is this in store as well? I wouldn't mind picking up additional figures for the kids. They can't play with mine  :D/ lol.

But they're not going out of business or shutting down any stores. They're just doing a financial restructuring.

Yes, the same deal usually in store too.

The store might also have figures that's not available online, I saw a couple of Knight Light and Mare in one store before they became briefly in stock online and sold out soon.
