Looks like nothing is in stock anyway. Most of the big sets that this would pay off on are sold out. Best deal would have been pairing Diagon Alley with Fire Brigade and Grand Emporium but all three are gone.

so you're saying they enforce this policy in-store as well? what's the point of offering buy 2, get 1 free if you can't, uhhh, buy 2 and get 1 free? unless that is spelled out on the store shelves, they don't have a leg to stand on. i think a reasonable employee or manager would allow the sale. i've had things like this cleared up on previous occasions -- of course, a tru credit card in hand always helps. ;)

I went in with two fellow LUG members to try and make good use of this deal. Almost everything we looked at was marked up. We finally decided to each get a Spongebob Heroes of the Deep set. Sticker said $14.99. We took it up to the register, and did the deal. One of the guys even had a $5 rewards card. Total came to about $35. Upon closer inspection, we found that the price had been raised to $17.99. Fortunately the manager brought the price down for us after we showed her the sticker. I see now that the online price is also $17.99, which is insane for a 95-piece set.

This is why I don't go to Toys R Us unless I REALLY have to.

I did the same thing. I bought the two spongebob sets which were priced on the shelf at 19.99 and 14.99. When I checked out they rang up at 24.99 and 17.99. I, too, was able to get the manager to reduce them to the displayed price but what a scam.

You just have to be very smart with these TRU offers. And buying in the stores almost always works out better than online, as you can argue things with a real human being.

I used this B2G1F offer. But I sit in the store with my iPad checking each item against the MSRP. I only ever buy items from TRU that are priced at MSRP for a start. Otherwise any discount you apply is just removing the mark-up and you might as well just order it from Amazon at that point.

With this B2G1F I found 3 sets with no mark-up, then I applied the $5 coupon I had earned, plus TRU had mailed me a $10 off $75 coupon too, so I applied that one as well. And then one of the sets I picked allowed me to get the free Ninjago Shrine as well.

So.. in summary: bought 3 sets at retail price. 1 set totally free. $15 off the remaining two. And a free $10 Shrine.

Still not as good as Borders where I was buying Lego at about 80% off on a routine basis.

If it wasn't clear, my attempt to take advantage of the BOGO was online only...but I stand by what I've already said, with no expectation that TRU will change their practices due to anything I say here or elsewhere. If you got a deal you were happy with, more power to you. I couldn't get what I wanted the way I wanted, so I'm content to shop elsewhere to do so.

And lets not forget the $25 gift card for $20 special that Borders was doing last year. Between those and the coupons, I was able to get the HP sets pretty cheaply. Of course the sales were not as nice after they noticed what was going on and instituted TRU pricing on all the LEGO.

the point is if you're patient you can get the best deals at tru (and amazon for that matter) -- but if you have to have a set right when it comes out (impatient types), then yah, pay full price at target or walmart because it will be cheaper there by a few bucks. although i have been lucky at some target and walmart clearance sales, in general i save more money over the years buying from tru and amazon.
