Then it mentions the 10%, 20% or 50% scratcher cards in the Stores and a big ol' block of lawyer speak.

On the topic of these deals, it's all seems lackluster. The last two or three years I have done the Lego 'hope and wish' thing and only ever seen the 10% discount. This went for anyone in the stores at the time I was there. It really felt like a lottery, which makes second guess my plans to head to the Glendale store Friday.

Hi. Which Lego store might you work at then?
I suppose it's possible that simply telling it like it is may deter folks from participating in the discussion. However, sometimes in order to get dialog moving, we really just need to lay everything on the table. If you think that the holes in the system will be kept secret by some sort of nebulous code of silence, I would suggest that's a wildly naive take on the situation.
If you do happen to work for Lego or have some association with the company, I would encourage you to request that they a) develop promotions that are accompanied by a sound set of enforcibly and unilaterally imposed rules and b) that they fully disclose all terms so that customers know what they are getting into.
I've received lots of great responses to my questions to this point. I expect that to continue with or without the participation of any representative from TLG. Thank you for your contributions.

My local Toys R Us has a sign out front saying no returns/exchanges will be allowed until after 1pm on Black Friday due to the expected crowds and craziness. So it seems like this would work at TRU. However, I have not seen anything like that at Target. But I picked up a Troll Fortress this past weekend anyway. My son wants it, and hopefully they will price match sometime that day. If not, he still wanted it (and I got 5% off for the redcard).
