TRU $10 off $50 coupon (rewards)

Post by UnknownUser » Tue Feb 21, 2012 5:48 pm

Just got a mini-catalog from TRU today that included said coupon for Rewards Rus members. Valid 2/24/12 (this friday) to 3/17/12. One transaction only.

Was this mailed to you? Or something you picked up in store?

Wait was this a catalog with the swingsets on the front and mostly outdoor toys, but a page of LEGO towards the back? I got this today, but no coupon (yes, I'm a rewards member). I still hate TRU! :lol:no

I got it via mail.

Yes, that's the one. Won't be surprised though if only certain members get the coupon...

Was the coupon a peel off?

Yes, my coupon was a peel-off (and it was on the circular with the swing set cover).

@Atmail35: maybe someone (mailman) took it?

Mine didn't have a peel off coupon either. My catalog in November did though.

I haven't seen one of those catalogs in awhile.

Just got it yesterday. I didn't know that TRU had the largest lego selection but $19.99 for the catwoman chase set is robbery.

I also received the same catalog with coupon in yesterday's mail.

I received one last week, but my coupon was $10 off a $100 purchase only while using the TRU credit card.

The mark-ups are horrible. I've seen and heard some of what everyone has said on this board but I don't frequent TRU myself. Everything in the catalog is marked up in the Friends and Batman line.

___________________MSRP / TRU
Steph Cool Convertible 14.99 / 20.99
Butterfly Beauty Shop 24.99 / 28.99
City Park Cafe 29.99 / 40.99
Heartlake Vet 39.99 / 51.99
Olivia's House 69.99 / 80.99

GL, Batman, Joker Bionicle 14.99 / 19.99
Catwoman Catcycle Chase 12.99 / 19.99
Batcave 69.99 / 89.99

SW Endor Rebel 12.99 / 14.99
SW Elite Clone 12.99 / 14.99
SW Droid Escape 19.99 / 21.99
SW Geonosian Cannon 19.99 / 21.99
SW Tie Fighter 54.99 / 59.99

Ninjago Venomari Shrine 6.99 / 8.99
Kai's Blade Cycle 14.99 / 19.99
Jay's Storm Fighter 24.99 / 29.99
Rattlecopter 29.99 / 34.99
Cole's Tread Assault 39.99 / 49.99

Friends, Batman and Ninjago have the worst mark-ups just based on this ad alone. I know you're probably savvy if you're reading this forum, but PLEASE don't be fooled by TRUs advertisement. What gets me is that they state for every set before the price in big bold letters: ONLY. We're ONLY asking for a 20% markup is what it SHOULD say.

Maybe TRU doesn't get a deal from Lego. Maybe they're forced to buy sets at retail price and the mark-up is their profit. Maybe we should feel sorry for them. :P NAH!

You're better off buying from Lego directly from their website (or Amazon). For the cost of just one TRU mark-up, you can have most of the sets shipped to you. And the beginning of March has double VIP points-TWO pluses over that other toy store...

I thought about that, but don't think so. Usually with the peel offs there is a plastic coating on the catalog where it "sticks". I really think TRU didn't send one on my copy. Which is fine, since I don't really want to buy anything there anyway! ;-)

Finally got my catalog/flyer in the mail today. Thought I wasn't going to get one. I got a 20% off a regular price item coupon which works out to be a much better deal for me than 10$

My sister got the same one and she lives two town over. It's got to be random.
