Yes, did you not read Rickey's post?

I think my TRU is hiding the minifigures and polybags in the back and will stick them out Sunday morning when the sale ends.

Just wanted to make sure as I read that someone said it only worked on construction sets.

In the TRU near me, the minifigs are label as a "hot price" item and thus not part of the sale.

TRU is such a rip off. It really should be illegal to jack prices like this. Maybe someone will class action lawsuit sue them.

Class action lawsuits do nothing. Sony has been sued a few times, each time they made 10 times more money on the illegal acts than the class action suit pays out.

I have tried to make this "sale" work for me and there is just nothing worth the trouble. Maybe Barrel Escape, maybe. But I went to TRU yesterday to attempt a price match with Target and was politely stonewalled by the manager. He insisted that they did NOT match online prices...

I can confirm that the HOT PRICE items were still available for BOGO 50% off in my local store. I was able to score 2 Coast Guard Patrol boats for $51.67 each after tax (on the shelf at $64.99 each). They are also offering in their weekly ad a $10 gift card with a $40 purchase and it does stack. I left with a $10 gift card too.

Yeah I bought four random series 11 when they first came out a month ago and never went back. I got three rare ones out of the 10 they had so I was happy. Went today and they were redoing it to take your eyes away from the fact they were ripping you off, tons of LEGOs everywhere, empty CMF bin. Which is weird because they always get the shipment in on Saturday or early Sunday.

However in a random box thrown on the floor was the brain TMNT polybags, 30270, for $4, so two for $6 is nice.

And I could have gotten two of last years Star Wars advent calendars (they are really going to confuse people soon) for $45 plus the $10 gift card.

The prices in there were so bad and the layout even worse I didn't even try to find other deals. But TRU is still the store to find polybags.


I bought last year's Star Wars advent calendars for only 29.99 3 days before the BOGO 50% coupon came out. I can't believe they marked up the price from 29.99 to 49.99.

They're still $29.99 at my store. The new one is $49.99.

I picked up 2x barrel escapes at TRU as it's a decent discount after the $10 gc coupon. They're $44.99 at my local TRU so ~$33.74 each and a $10 gc. I was actually hoping the TRU site was going to keep them at $39.99 before the 20%/25% off sale but that was wishful thinking...

Last year's SW Advent calendar is $30 at TRU, was $24, then $30 and at first $50, it was a $40 set. However you can now get two of them for for $45 and get the $10 GC. That's worth it, but I already got it for $22 with tax. I really just wanted R2Snow2. :)

I found lots this time. The bigger priced sets with a newly opened toyrsus card equaled (x+10%)-25%-10% plus a free 10 gift card plus $10 off more after spending over a $100... That last part only worked on certain sets. But this was a big buying opportunity if you got the right csr helping you with all the stackable discounts.

The lego friends dolphin cruiser set is a good deal as it's still at the msrp price of $69.99. It's a hot price item but the sale works on it in store and online. I am actually surprised they haven't fixed it yet...
