[TRU] In-store and on-line 15% off and other offers

Post by atmail35 » Wed Aug 14, 2013 10:10 am

This was mentioned in the Coupons Forum by forum member, starfire2, but since it is valid on-line as well I'll post it here.

You can get 15% off a Regular priced purchase with this coupon through 8/17.

http://trus.imageg.net/graphics/media/t ... N_9597.pdf" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I found it worked on non-LEGO clearance IN-Store (items ending in .98) so try it out in-store on LEGO.

Use code EXTRA15 on-line, appears to work only on Regular Priced items.

You also can get a free LEGO Legends of Chima Crug's Swamp Jet (30252) online with a $50 LEGO Construction purchase on-line. (UPDATE - appears sold out on-line).

My store was advertising either the LEGO Friends Poodle's Little Palace (41021) or Chima Crug's Swamp Jet (30252) free with a $20 LEGO Construction purchase.

I guess YMMV on the in-store...perhaps I should move this to "in-store deals". ;-)

Still not a good deal online...when you use 15% off code, it has removed the option for free shipping.
Only 1 promo at a time online. Essentially it is back up to $90 with shipping.

Add something small, such as AT-RT Walker 75002 (which is on sale for below MSRP at 17.99), and you get free shipping back on the 75025. Price comes out to 94.48 before tax, shipped.

AT-RT is cheaper at Amazon etc, but the point is to add something small to include the free shipping. I suppose you could add something for around $5 and still get the discount, but I haven't tested it.

Not even shoprunner 2 day free shipping works with that promo code, boo!

That being said, I added a $20 set that was "on sale" at RRP. :) and got free shipping that way...

They seem to have disallowed use of the 15% off code with the Jedi Defender set. Guess I shouldn't have waited to pull the trigger.

Just bought the Jedi set in-store. It works. I also bought Cars Big Bentley Bust Out 8639 for ~$42 after 15% discount. I had to make sure this was discounted because when I scanned it, it says it's on promo. This seems like a good deal for a >740 piece set.

Tried to apply the 15% off coupon to the modular sets (like the Pet Shop) but couldn't get it to work. TRU is horrible, as usual...

Any other deals out there to take advantage of the "clearance blast"? I'm not feeling optimistic that the 15% off will fly in store. And I'm way too used to getting at least 50% off MSRP on clearance deals (thank you KMart, WalMart, and on rare occasions, Target, for spoiling me. :-D )

I couldn't get any of this to work, why do I even bother with Trus anymore. Everytime I see one of their sales no matter how good it is I just say to myself "that won't work" and don't bother. This one seemed promising so I through a couple modulars in my cart, it woudn't work and wouldn't tell me why. That's the last time I think with Trus, the only way I've found to get a deal is when their is some loophole they overlooked like a groupon and clearance or something like that. I want them to do well cuz of they're like the last toy store, i'm happy to pay regular full price for some new items and exlusives there, but I'm just tired of feeling tricked.

That's nothing. I got a coupon from them for like 30-35% off one Baby item:

Excludes Toys, Furniture, Diapers, Formula, and some others... I was like, wow... 30-35% off $4.99 Teething Rings... yay!
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.

Wegj,

Modulars and other items that include this tidbit under the Special Offers section
This is a LEGO Hard to Find item with limited availability and is excluded from all LEGO Promotions.
will not work with any coupons. There had been times when those items, including the Death Star and Super Star Destroyer would work with a BOGO 50% sale, but those days are long gone.

On a side note, the extra15 code is once again working with the Jedi Defender. I also realized that your subtotal has to reach at least $79 in order to receive free shipping. That means you'd have to add at least a $4 item to your cart to get free shipping included. The minifigure series are $4 each, but you could take a look to see what's a nice filler item to include.

I removed myself from TRU text alerts and emails, I just can't stand the place and won't even entertain the idea of spending money there. It's like if there is a sale I already expect a price increase and I feel as if I have to hunt for an actual good deal.

If you need series 10 mini figures, they would only be $2.70 each with the coupon.
