TRU LUVS U: 7 games for $4

Photo1.jpgBy now you’ve probably seen the front page of this week’s TRU’s ad with the incredible sale on Hasbro games – we’re talking $3 games, down from $10!  And to sweeten it all the more, today’s Smart Source has $2 and $3 coupons.

Big deal, Goddess, I can almost hear you say, we get deals like this all the time!  But notice the circle in the upper right hand corner with gift card promotion:  Spend $35 on Hasbro board games and get a $10 TRU gift card.  The card isn’t activated for 6 hours, so you can’t immediately roll this into another deal.

There is a limit of two like games per transactions, which is pretty easy to hit.  I shopped at the Downers Grove store on Butterfield and they were not only well-stocked, they had tons of employees for assistance.  Using two board games ($20) and five $3 games, you hit $35.  Use either the $3 or $2 coupons (all scan) and you’ll pay as little as $14 and get a $10 TRU gift card.

Half-price diapers at TRU?

ToysRus is giving out $20 TRU gift cards when you buy 2 boxes of their Babies R Us brand diapers, 72 ct or higher.  I’ve read some stores have Value Packs for $10, but around here I only saw the regularly-priced ones for $19.99.    Buy two for $40 and get a $20 gift card.  You won’t be able to roll this immediately – shelf tag says the card won’t be activated for 6 hours – but I don’t see why you couldn’t run it several times over the course of the promotion (ends February 10).  Check out your local TRU and BRU – maybe you’ll spot those Value Packs!

LEGO Star Wars podracers – may the farce be with you

The captioned picture is the model showing in this week’s Target sales ad for $30.  This is definitely a ymmv situation, because I was unable to find ANY Target with these in stock – the smaller stores don’t even have a shelf tag.  No Walmart carries it (checked regular and Supers) either.  I was able to get this model on a price match (with the ad) at a TRU location, but again, ymmv.  Sale price at TRU is $94+!

Here is the Target stock number if you want to start calling:  204001096.
