I got it via mail.sidersdd wrote:Was this mailed to you? Or something you picked up in store?
Yes, that's the one. Won't be surprised though if only certain members get the coupon...atmail35 wrote: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!
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.

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!starfire2 wrote:@Atmail35: maybe someone (mailman) took it?
My sister got the same one and she lives two town over. It's got to be random.pumbaugh wrote: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$
