Yes, it is. Most of the better sets are out of stock though. In fact, I can't find anything that really seems like a great deal. :S

Almost everything worthwhile is still sold out from the previous sales, and anything left seems to be price inflated still. :x

good hunting tho.

I just got back from Toys R Us and didn't see anything about this. The sale signs from the past week were still up.

However, I did just get the weekly flier:

It's more like an all-you-can-eat buffet except for the steak and lobster, which are full price. It makes sense that they would exclude their top selling items from the sale. The intent is to move the less-popular product.

That's just Toys R Us. They are incredibly deceptive with their promotions and pricing strategies.

it's a classic bait-and-switch, yet they evidently get away with perpetuating it on a regular basis on a public that ranges from unsuspecting to jaded and bitter.

best thing to do is file a grievence with the ftc for misleading advertising and make a report with your state attorny general and maybe tru will get spanked...cause its hell explainging to a kid why they cant get 3 star wars kits cheap when the ad says in big letters ALL

Signed up for the Toys R Us rewards program in December and got my first set of Rewards R Us $5 coupons. Does anyone know if they stack? I have 3 and it would be nice to apply $15 off their inflated prices for the new Star Wars sets.

Yes, you should be able to use them all at once (as long as they are all valid for the same range of dates).
