How To Save 40% On LEGO Cars Sets

Postby Staff » Mon Jun 27, 2011 2:21 pm





Right now, Toys'R'Us stores are having two promotions that stack with each other netting you a total 40% discount on LEGO Cars sets.

Promotion 1: BOGO 50% on all LEGO sans Star Wars, POTC, or Alien Conquest. But it works on Cars sets.

Promotion 2: All Cars construction sets are 20% off.

Now you're probably thinking, "what about the TRU markup?" Last I checked, which was this morning at 11:00am, there is no mark up except for their exclusive set, 8679 Tokyo International Circuit, and that markup is only in store. It's priced at $98.99 instead of MSRP of $89.99. Online, the price is $89.99 before discount. And you get free shipping if your order is over $100. Still, all other sets are at MSRP. To maximize the discount, you'll have to get two of the same priced sets.

Example: 8487 Flo's V8 Cafe is regularly $59.99. With the Cars promotion, the set drops down to $47.99 Getting two sets with BOGO, your total is $71.98 before tax. $120 worth of sets for $72 bucks is 40% off. Not too shabby.

They're also running another promotion where if you spend more than $25 on Cars 2 toys you get their exclusive metallic Lightning McQueen toy, pictured below:





Both promotions end this Friday, July 2.

Has anyone gotten this to work yet? I tried adding two items to the cart. It gave me the 20% CARS discount, but not the BOGO discount. There doesn't seem to be a promo code, so this "should" be automatic. Will try again later. But, maybe need to call them directly to place the order?

You might need to call them.

I got the correct discount to trigger once i removed the lightning mcqueen toy.

The TRU near me (Burbank) has the 20% off but not the BOGO. They had no idea what I was talking about.

Tell them to go to TRU.com to check, or print the ad and bring it in. They HAVE to honor the BOGO promotion as long as it's going on. Or, you could just order directly from on-line.

Hmm. Seems that particular TRU just isn't doing it; when I look on the website for deals it asks for a zip code and I see the same flier I saw at the store w/ no BOGO.

Tempting to buy online but I'm only looking at two of the 15 buck sets anyway, so the shipping takes away that sweet sense of victory. But 20% off is still cool; I'm going to get the Guido/Luigi set tomorrow.
