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.
