[USA] TRU 20% off one item Facebook coupon (print up to 3)

Postby JamesBenjamin » Thu Aug 04, 2011 1:45 am

Credit for the find goes to someone on TFW2005 (Transformers forum) where I used the coupon to pick up my Masterpiece Rodimus Prime.

Go to TRU's Facebook page, on the left side there's a 20% off coupon link. Click though and print it out! Its that easy!

You can do it three times before it tells you you can't any more, but I printed one at work then 3 more at home (to test the qty) with no problems. It seems the qty is either tied to your browser or computer, not your Facebook account.

With all the new Star Wars sets coming in, I'm sure this will come in handy. Expires 8/14.

Thanks for the heads-up. It looks like it maxes out at three individual print runs, but within each of those runs you can print as many as you want: print once, set the quantity to whatever, print again with another quantity, and then print the third time with another quantity. I did three, one, and five to test it that way and it worked fine.

Each print run will have a single-use barcode though. When you close that tab and click "print" again you get a new barcode. Each barcode # is usable only once.

Thanks for the heads up! I'm probably not going to use this on LEGO, but they do have a couple of other exclusives I'd like to get.

D'oh! I hit print without closing that window, so it used the three runs and all with the same barcode. Good to know you need to close the window to get a new code.

i know what i did wrong. i hit the print this coupon as soon as the print job was done, thus getting the same bar code. it wasn't until i closed the window and clicked on the link on the facebook page that i got a new bar code.

fyi, if you clear your cookies for the coupon page, you can generate more coupons.

Printed off a few of these bad boys, picked up the Knight Bus and the new Hoth playset (my heart screamed "PODRACERS!" but my brain said "Discount on Hoth is a more practical decision"). I may still go back and pick up the podracers, too. Didn't realize the TRU markup was so high on some of those sets, though! Hogwarts and Hogwarts Express were marked up so high that even with the 20% discount, it wouldn't have even been $10 under MSRP! Lamesauce. . .

FYI - TRU Rewards just sent an email promo, $10 Geoffrey Bucks for in-store purchases of $50 or more between Aug. 7 and 13th...

I think I'll take my 20% off coupon and go pick up the podracer set or the Falcon.

Thanks guys - I just printed out 2 more coupons - all 3 have a different bar code.

I picked up the Falcon with my first coupon. Its $10 above MSRP ($149.99), but between the other $20 I'm saving and lack of sales tax buying in NH (I live in MA), it ended up being $120 for the set and back to the good old 0.10/piece ratio from back in the day. Their markup was about the same as what I would have paid in sales tax.

Anywhere I can cut corners, I'm all for!

Now I need to figure out which sets to use the other 2 coupons towards ;-)

That's strange, the new Falcon was actually marked at MSRP ($139.99) at my TRU. Can pricing vary from store to store?

I wouldn't put anything past them. They probably upped the price during this coupon period (sorry, its the pessimistic/conspiracy theory side of me) ;)

It's $149.99 on their website too...

This deal is back on, but it looks like you can only print 1 coupon this time. Not sure if its tied to your FB account or 'puter. i tried at work and will try again at home later and see what barcode # I get.

Does anyone know if they'll let you stack this with the $25 off $100 sale going on this week?

You can use both in the same order, but not on the same item. The $25 off will go to the highest priced item. Both do stack with the various Star Wars sales items they have - which I thought was supposed to end on Saturday.

Yes, it will stack on the $25 off deal. In order to qualify for the $25 off though, the discounted price must still exceed $100.

The barcodes are a little trickier this time. Printing it three times, even closing out each time, still yielded the same barcode numbers. The only way I got it to reset was print 3 of the same coupon and then clear the cookie but I have not tried the new number yet to see if the new coupon/number is valid.

Are you sure it'll work? I've never had any luck stacking deals at TRU. The last time this coupon was out it specifically restricted promotion stacking.

And now the coupon page isn't loading for me. Blah!
