TRU Buy 1 Get 1 50% Off Deal

Postby SDIronClaw » Thu Sep 08, 2011 7:58 pm

It is back, Toys R Us Buy 1 Get 1 50% Off Deal for Sept 9th and 10th only. Looks like it is any Lego Set, including Star Wars, HP, and etc. Nice chance to pick up some of the new SW line, even though it comes out to be about 30% off with the TRU markup. Reguardless, it is a pretty good deal.

Link for coupon is below:

it actually comes out to be near 20% off or less with the markup on Star Wars and other licenses. couple that with TRU's restrictions on quantities (limit 1 per customer on expensive sets) and their BOGO sales are now pretty close to useless on the higher priced sets. Oh well. It was was fun while it lasted :/

Yea, I tried ordering two Death Stars since they are in stock, but alas it only let me add one. Drat.

Does it work with the $40 off $150?
eBay store, contact me if you'd like to perform trades from my inventory. I'm looking for original genosian fighers, second version a-wing fighters and tie bombers. I may be interested in other sets so let me know what you have.

Good question, I would say probably not. I do know however there were guys getting the double deal on the 20% coupon and the cash amount off. In this case, I would highly doubt it.

i would imagine that since all those discounts are all automatic they WOULD stack. back when tru had a bogo deal with lego, it stacked on top of the 20% discount on all cars items. so lego cars sets were on the cheap. i'd look for the article but i'm lazy.

the fine print on the 40 off 150 says it does not combine, but you never know

I'd suggest that anybody wanting to try to stack the discounts should order sooner rather than later, in case the TRU folk become privy to stacked coupon codes/discounts.

Ohhh, if the collectible minifigures are still normal price, I'd love to get some for half off. :)

On a hunch, I jumped over to fao.com and found they are still showing $25 off $100 and the bogo offer on lego items. May be worth trying to make a phone order to get them to honor it. You can get two 69.99 sets for just over 100 and then another 25 off. Sith Infiltrator and Village Raid here I come!

I was in at the Ontario Mills TRU this afternoon and they had both deals posted on the same placard, but also states "Offers Cannot Be Combined." I picked up $154 worth of Lego and received the $40 off.

Good time to get some alien attack sets as they are not marked up at the local TRU.

Granted, it works out better on high end sets, but not for the lesser sets.

TRU :
LEGO Star Wars Clone Trooper Battle Pack (7913) $14.99
LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian Battle Pack (7914) $14.99

so $14.99 + (50%) $7.49 = $22.48

Target : $11.99 + $11.99 = $23.98

I'm sure when the total sets are around $100+ each it's a better deal.

Usually it's only good for one pair of items purchased, and TRU has raised the price of Series 5 to $3.49 each.
