#13165692 ToysRus Weekly Ad 1/17 - 1/23: Buy 1 Get 1 50% Off All “r” Super Buy Video Games

Posted by bmulligan on 22 January 2016 - 03:12 PM

People are going to call me a cynicist, but Buy 1 Get 1 50% off is the worst kind of deal. Worse than B2G1 and certainly much worse than B1G1. If TRU wants me to step foot in their smelly, loud, rugrat-infested store, they need to have better deals than this.

I don't think anyone's going to call you a "cynicist" 'cause that's just a made-up word.  I think you mean CYNIC - but then again, I don't think you mean that based on the definition of that word either.  What you are is a PESSIMIST.   But, you are correct - a bogo50 off is, effectively, a 25% discount.  a B2g1 is a 33.33% discount, and a b1g1 is a 50% discount.  So overall, the b1g1 is the best deal.  But, the only day I ever seen a rugrat infested ToysRus is on Black Friday.  364 other days of the year it's mostly empty - probably because of their inflated price structure.

 

Does anyone have a link to an ad scan of this or an email?  I can't find this deal online and I'd prefer not to drive 30 miles to find out it doesn't really exist tomorrow.

If you say "Bread's Done" three times in to a mirror, @Shipwreck will appear in your house.
