Buy 2 get 1 Free at TRU

Postby Coret » Sun Sep 20, 2009 7:02 am

So it's that time of year again, Geoffery's Birthday Sale, and this year they are doing a BTGO on ALL LEGO Sets. (Excludes Star Wars and Bulk.)

Stupid small print ruining my day.... Oh well, at least Indiana Jones is included in it. It is still a very nice sale.

While the printed circular excludes Star Wars LEGO, all the TRU web reference include it, as does the SW LEGO page:

Maybe it's online only, or maybe it varies store-to-store, depending on how strictly they interpret the flyer?

When does this run? I was in a TRU yesterday and saw nothing about it.

EDIT: Answered my own question. I guess I'd better head back over there today.

Just because the banner is posted at the top of the page doesn't necessarily mean that they are including Star Wars in the promotion (clicked your link). At best, though, it may vary from store to store, but my TRU is also excluding Star Wars and bulk.

EDIT: Just noticed that they ARE including Star Wars in the promo online! Cool!

Well, by including SW online, they have to ship it to you, which probably negates a big chunk of the savings. I was all ready to hit a local TRU for this today. I even have rewards coupons to use.

The page for LEGO Star Wars at the TRU website that you get to from their main page seems to be missing a some of sets (Endor, Y-wing and Venator) that do show up if you do a search for "LEGO Star Wars". They even have the AT-OT on sale.

Well in the past, I have seen it where they say excludes Star Warts, and then you get to the store and scan them, and they are included. So we can only hope, but if not, it is still a very nice sale on the other ones.

Can you let us know if this works at all? :)

Even if the system glitches and allows SW sets, they still have signs clearly stating that SW is not included.

Here's my haul. Shipwreck Hideout was free, so I saved $27 (compared to regular MSRP, not TRU price)

Does anyone have a list of current TRU-exclusive sets? I'd like to pick some of those up on this sale. The ones I know of are Squidman's Pitstop, Wind Turbine Transport, Shipwreck Hideout, Home One, Tractor, 4WD with Horse Trailer, the three smaller Belville sets, Combine Harvester, and Farm. Is the SP3 Max Security Transport or the Star Wars Pirate Tank a TRU exclusive?

Not sure about the Max Security Transport, but in my travels I've seen the Pirate Tank at Target, so that's not a TRU exclusive...

I probably won't be able to get to a TRU before this thing ends, but if I can I'll have to take this opportunity to get all the SPIII sets I've been eying (pretty much all of them)...

Don't forget that Count Dooku's Solar Sailor is a TRU exclusive. Overpriced, underwhelming (from what I've heard), and old, but still a TRU exclusive.

I had a $30 giftcard from last week's Scribblenauts/Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story promotion, so using that along with this new deal allowed me to snag $53 of LEGO for a measly $13 after sales tax. (For those of you keeping score at home, I picked up the Fire Truck, Tow Truck, and Air Mail; trying to bolster my Town/City collection lately.)

Thanks for the heads-up on this! I went and picked up some of those fancy-schmancy Technic sets that I've always liked but never prioritized. . .

AND it looks like online finally figured out they goofed when they put Star Wars on sale - the sale has come off most Star Wars LEGO sets now.

They've fixed the website so that now Star-Wars is NOT included in the sale. They must have been blown out yesterday as most of the stuff is SOLD OUT today.
Do something.

Man, that sucks that TRU pulled it off their website. I was hoping to get some echo bases. :)
