Toys R Us 20% Discount

Post by Yogibara » Sun Aug 12, 2012 3:17 pm

They're running a 20% online purchase from now until Aug 18 when you purchase $100 dollars of stuff. Plus when I clicked on the link there was another promo for 15 dollars off a Lego purchase with a coupon code. Where can we find those?

Toys N' Bricks always comes through with the info -- this thread should solve the code mystery ;-)

Yeah, thanks. sorry about the double post. I can't seem to get the 20% discount to work on Lego though.

Has anyone gotten the 20% to work on LEGO? It's not excluded by the terms sheet of the promotion.

They will exclude by adding in the free mini figs...then it becomes a special offer

Sly. Are they still jerking us around in revenge for the 10 off 50 fiasco?
Anyway, the more complicated they make things, the more likely it is they will outsmart themselves and screw up again. I'm just biding my time.

Also, when you do the 15 off 50 for something right close to 50, it drops the price... but you lose the free shipping for 49 and over! I mean sure, they have a right to structure it that way, but it probably isn't good long term business practice to constantly create the impression that you are bait and switching your customers.

That's fine I'll keep spending my money at places that actually want my business. Amazon, with amazon prime, is a no brainier first with target and Walmart a close second and third for finding deals. TRU is a fallback plan. I just got the amazon visa and now I get three points for every dollar and a 100 points = $1. I don't know about you guys but that's a nice little bonus in my household.

Ah, I wondered about that. I was going to finally bite the bullet and order an IS last night but the 20% was not being applied. I figured there was some loophole I had not thought about.

Removing the figure from your cart doesn't change anything either, in case you were wondering.

Has anyone tried calling customer support and trying to resolve it that way? I tried removing the figures too, but no luck.

I just had a look at the details of the coupon and Lego has hit the exclusion list. I hope this isn't the foretelling of new and negative trend of Lego exclusions.

They actually changed it. Wish I had a screenshot of when it clearly WASN'T on the original exlusion list.

+1 yup they changed it. Not only that but on the Pet Shop the coupon showed under the details unlike other Lego and it still wouldn't apply.

With B&N, Amazon, Yoyo & the occasional Lego.com sales why bother shopping at TRU...they won't be getting any more of my money.

Actually, I just tried it for the SW Y-Wing($15 off 1 time use coupon) and it discounted... so I don't know what TRU is doing. If it still applies tomorrow than I'll bite.

The $15 works but the 20% doesn't. The Shuttle at $79.99 is ok with the coupon I guess...wish the Town Hall would go on sale...where have all the bogo gone :down:

Having had a similar problem with one of their Memorial Day promotions that wasn't being applied, I made sure to take a screen grab.

They cancelled my Y-Wing order... says it's not in stock at my store but site still says it is in stock for my store. Maybe it got bought out in the morning? I'm gonna check the store anyway. If it's there you better believe I'm raising you know what... :evil:

UPDATE: I go to my store and they have like 15 Y-Wing sets! I printed out a coupon before I went so I still got it for $39.99. So I don't know what Toysrus is doing with their store pickup option... :down: I didn't complain since there was a very loud crying baby at the time. I'll just take it up with the Toysrus site. :mad:

Man I got REALLY spoiled from all that BOGO 50%, B2G1 90%, etc. My wallet loves it though. I seem to be waiting a lot longer these days, and having to settle for 20-30% most sets instead of getting the 30-75% off everything from previous years.

Target isn't having as many sales/ clearances which makes it even worse. I don't even bother looking at TRU anymore with all the price increase shinanigans...
I have mixed feelings about new releases: I can't wait to see and get the new sets... but I can't figure out where I'm gonna put them or store them.

yup, the sales have been pretty poor this year. probably because of the worsening economic condition and also the frauds and shoplifting going on. seems like more news this year about lego theft.
