Apparently there's a 20% off coupon out there for TRU if you "like" them on Facebook.....just in time for the SDCC stuff.

Thanks for the heads up!

does it have a set expiration date, or is it something like 2 weeks after you "like" them?

The one I just printed runs from 7/25 through 8/14 - like iFett said - hopefully with enough time so I can use it to score 20% off of one of the Force Unleashed sets I want to grab!  ;D

It's 20 percent on one item though, right? That's why I gotta find a vintage boxed BAT-AT now.

Correct, one item.

I got an e-mail from Toys R Us this morning that if you spend $50 from 8/7-8/13 you'll get $10 in rewards mailed to you.

It says it's a special offer for "Select Rewards R Us Members" - so your mileage may vary I guess...

Is it only in store or online as well?  Do you need a coupon?  Thanks!

It is in-store purchases only.

Here is the exact wording:

From August 7-13, you will get FREE $10 Geoffery Bucks with your in-store toy purchase of $50 or more at Toys R Us. Offer valid on combined purchases made between 8/7-8/13. Your FREE $10 Geoffery Bucks will be emailed to you.

So I think all you need to do is make the $50 in purchases during next week and make sure that you have them scan your Rewards R Us card.

And here's the disclaimer, which is pretty standard with their Rewards R Us program...

Quote
*$10 Geoffrey Bucks can be earned from combined eligible purchases made in store between 8/7-8/13/11. Only one $10 Geoffrey Bucks can be earned per eligible RewardsRUs member. Eligible purchases of $50 or more exclude baby food, diapers, formula, wipes, Ameda, Baby Brezza, Baby Jogger, BOB, Britax, Bugaboo, Cybex, ERGObaby, Mamas & Papas, Motherhood Maternity, Nap Nanny, Pediped, Peg Perego, Phil & Teds, Robeez, Tommee Tippee, Under Armour, electronic learning toys, netbooks, tablets, video game hardware, video games, Apple products, FAO products, Robot Galaxy, Buyer Protection Plan, gift cards, photo studios, phone orders, Special Orders, assembly fee, breast-pump rental fee, delivery fee, and shipping & handling. Geoffrey Bucks will be emailed to you on or about 8/17/11 and are valid through 8/24/11 at Toys''R''Us. Certain restrictions apply.

And, yet again, I don't get an email, despite spending an inordinate amount of money at that store. It is a train wreck. Their loss.

And here I bought the TFU set yesterday and and the Marvel Sentinel.  Oh well, I used a 20% off Facebook coupon on each - so I saved $18.

How did you get two?  Also, did you have to ring them up separately?

TRU also has a deal on SW basic figures this week (Commander Blackout is exempted).  It's Buy Two for $10.99.  That deal applies to The Vintage Collection, Clone Wars and Saga Legends (along with other Hasbro properties).  And in the case of TVC it's essentially a BOGO deal.  I scored another Cloud Car Pilot & AT-AT Commander to fill the ranks at this price.

Wonder if that includes the Times Square tru? It might be worth checking out.

To answer my own question: Yes. And I went down there and they adjusted the price of my Wave 7 figures! I am quite a happy camper now.

Weird that TRU.com doesn't honor the 2 for $10.99 price but (some) stores do.

Wow...I actually got that one.  Put me in the camp of never getting **** from TRU emailed to me.

Justin - you can print up to 3 of the TRU FB coupons.  I didn't go there, but apparently you can do this.

yeah - I got two from each FB account (my wife and my own).  Yes I rang them up separately.
