Bricktober Continues at Toys R Us

Posted by ,
Attack On Weathertop

Valid Sunday October 6 through Saturday October 12, Toys R Us has several promotions running. Firstly, there is a Buy One, Get One 40% Off deal on ALL LEGO sets. And by ALL, Toys R Us is excluding Chima, Technic, Mindstorms and likely anything they consider a "Hot Deal" or "Hard to Find." Though it is certainly more difficult these days to find a good deal at TRU, it is not impossible. Do your best to find sets with as little mark-up as possible, and then pair them with similarly priced sets to maximize your savings.

Additionally this week, you will receive a Toys R Us exclusive minifigure set with ANY LEGO construction or LEGO board game purchase of $60 or more. Lastly, Toys R Us continues to offer 10% Back on Toy Purchases made through October for Rewards "R" Us members. The "rebate" is capped at $100 and will be emailed to you as a promotional gift card in mid-November. "Rewards" dollars will apparently continue to accrue as well.

Don't forget that Toys R Us (like Target) is also now price matching most online prices in store, including their own. I will probably try it myself this month with Jabba's Palace (9516) and/or Constitution Train Chase (79111) via Amazon. I imagine the rebates and Rewards dollars will still accumulate and also hope to receive that week's giveaway.

I don't think they let you ad match AND get the buy one get one 40 % off.

Right, no price match and BOGO, but you *should* still be able to get the 10% + Rewards + minifig set.

Just a little bit jealous that Americans only need to spend 60$ to get their freebies. The way LEGO sets are priced it's always a bit wonky to get the magic number of 75$, on top of taxes and all that typically the CND buyers wind up spending 90$ or more just to get free Chinese Mini-Figures.

Not always a bad thing, at times, but a bit frustrating for the math to work out just right unless you pick the same priced sets for each purchase.

Quick question though, is there some big sale in the States on Weathertop? Or was the pic just chosen at random, cause the article makes no mention of that specific set.

TRU also is promoting a free 30270 polybag with $20 purchase of any LEGO sets.

I got a TRU 2 minutes from my house. TRU doesn't let you combine deals. Nor do they price match online deal. They never carry enough freebie if any. Nor do they carry HTF. Believe me, I tried :)

I get local TRU to price match online prices all the time. That's the only way I ever purchase any LEGO from there.

They will tell you "NO price matching" because that's what they're programmed to do. Go in there and tell them how to do their job! ;-)

My TRU initially gave me next week's set of minifigures (which honestly, I think is better than the first set) but I wanted to make sure I (and everyone else) has a chance to get them all. I asked one employee about it and he said "That's what the sent us." I said "Are they all the same?" To which he responds "Yeah, that's what they sent us." He wouldn't even go look! So I waited to talk to someone else and they found the first set and put the others away for next week.

I believe any TRU price match problems are from lack of training or not enough register training, not some evil corporate plot.. Some employees don't even know how to check if an item is in stock in the back warehouse.

I went to buy 5 pack yesterday before I found 60$ worth of stuff to spend I figured I try to just buy the 5 pack for the 20$ alone and they let me buy it with no problems. How ever once I looked at recipte it says "promo not for separate sale" they still sold it to me. This could just be an example of lazy employes though =)

Not really missing anything at TRU Odeinoichus, US TRU Prices = Australian Regular Retail Prices...

(Sorry Aussies, I know you need some Lego love.)

TRU will price match amazon. I did it today to get the minfig pack. They just won't combine price match with a sale ie: buy one get 40% of the next etc.

Most of their big items seem to be "hot price items" and can't be combined to make the BOGO.

minigifures are super special types of minifigures. ;o)

They had the minifigure packs out with the rest of the LEGO aisle at my TRU. If I was even remotely interested in any of the figures I would have purchased it separately. I asked about it specifically and they said "yeah, they sent them to us like that to sell." There was no signage anywhere about receiving it free with certain purchases and none of the employees knew anything about the promotion...

But I only went in there for the Giraffe polybag and left since everything else is ridiculously expensive compared to every other LEGO retailer.

The "Hot Price Items" are showing the discount in the TRU online store. I haven't placed an order yet though.

I'm planning to stock up on some Friends sets for holidays and birthdays for my two daughters. They love them.
