Picked up a couple of 2 for $10.99's, but was prepared to be let down as the sale signs specifically said items $8.99 and under.

Welcome to the club!  The Rep scout is incorrectly priced as well if you find one.

Got an email from Hasbro: Buy $10 worth of Star Wars stuff on HTS and get a free figure.

Quote
Receive 1 Free STAR WARS Action Figure with any $10 STAR WARS purchase

Receive 1 Free STAR WARS action figure with any STAR WARS purchase of $10 or more available only through the HasbroToyShop.com website. Figures may vary. Valid only while supplies last. Offer may expire without notice due to error, fraud or other unforeseen circumstances. Offer valid in U.S. only. Void where prohibited. Subject to terms and conditions of use and HasbroToyShop.com policies. Offer expires August 22, 2011 at 11:59 PM (ET). 2011 Hasbro. All Rights Reserved.

I may give it a shot although the free figure is probably going to be a 4-LOM or ROTS Obi-Wan or something.

I picked up and extra Fi-ek-sirk-birk-girk and a AT-RT Driver at the 2 for $10.99 sale price at TRU. so I can further back the findings that it does include Vintage.

I got this too.  Too bad they don't have anything worth getting on the site.  There's mostly Legends figs available, with just a handful of CW and Vintage to pick from.  Lame.   :P

It's hard to make $10 when each figure is $8.99. :-\

It seems that that no matter how many tries you make, they put Saga Legends ROTS Obi-Wan in your cart. Could be a place holder for a random figure, but really...I bet they just have that many Obi-Wans in stock.  :P

I can also confirm the 2 for $10.99 deal at TRU is including TVC. I picked up a couple of Stormtroopers for that price. For under $6 a piece after tax it's much easier to swallow than at almost $10 a piece.

Also I found tonight that the CW Republic Scout Speeder rings up for $4.24 at Target due to the SKU/DPCI retiring. None of the other mini-rigs at the store I was at rang up at that cheap price.

Yeah, another confirmation of TVC being included. The signs on the pegs at TRU say ALL Hasbro 3.75 inch figs, no mention of prices or anything. Basically anything Marvel, Star Wars and GI Joe that's 3.75 inch is eligible. I picked up two CC Pilots yesterday and even asked the cashier if they were included since they rang up $9.99 each, and she said they did.

TRU.com is running a one-day sale today, 20% off what seems to be all SW toys...  They've got army builders around like AOTC Clones, AT-RT Drivers, etc.

Typical TRU.  Republic set is sold out, TFU set is not showing up online, and the Vintage Y-Wing is not included in the sale.

Anyone know if there are any current HTS codes available?  I wasn't sure if the Comic Con one still worked or not, but maybe there were others.

Got my TRU Rewards bucks for $10 in my e-mail this morning.

Good timing too! I received a $5 rewards coupon in the mail on Monday as well - and the TRU I hit before going into work got in a case of the Video Game 5-packs - I scored the two Force Unleashed sets I needed and the total came to less than $70 with tax. Nice!

Booooo!  I didn't get any coupons.  I did get the original email and bought x2 Hot Rods last week, but no dice.   ::)  Oh well...just happy to have that headache behind me.
