The website had reported no stock on the set, but there was one on the shelf.
I also wonder if it shouldn't be a hot price at all, because this isn't on the exclusive list iirc.
Disappointed, but not surprised.
Online, applying the 20% puts the 50% off item (BOGO) back to full price. :(
The #42009 is a bit bit intriguing if Amazon was not able to sell them and possibly put the set at 25% off.
Are these transferrable? Could I email them to a friend? Thanks,
If you email your friend the coupon code, I do not see why he cannot use that code for an online order. I do not think their system associates a rewards coupon code with any user.
Expiration dates are one of the reasons I got fed up with TRU rewards and I cancelled my TRU Visa. It used to be they sent you $10 gift cards that had no coupon limitations or expiration dates.
I assume that would not work with the 19.99 man bat set since it is "marked down" from 27.99 so the 20% off would not work. Thanks again,
Price matching often does not work with their coupons, or sales, again YMMV on that.
Again TRU loves their games.... Is it BOGO50 on RRP? Or is it BOGO50 on TRU's 'RRP'?
cause if it is TRU' RRP, then for most items it is like 'BTFNRRP ( Buy two for normal RRP) Again? Wow.... Not on BOGO50 though.. now THAT would be nice!
But most of the time it is no longer worth mentioning that there are BOGO50s without also noting that you may find good deals but probably will not, as anyone new may actually think that a BOGO50 means a lot at TRU.
Now, having said that, again the TS is actually at retail right now which is a bit surprising as most of the other sets are hiked over RRP.
While they are likely no longer found at TRUs anywhere, would not mind finding two #3677 at a store for BOGO as it is showing as 99 bucks right now..lol.
Anyway, I found one #42009 (Mobile Crane) at my local TRU. I was on the fence not only because I really didn't want to get rejected about keying in the coupon, but I'm a bit jaded because ~28% off just seems too low nowadays. With Amazon now selling Technics, 20% off is probably going to be the typical discount for technics now. Then I guess I rationalized it and added the R rewards, which bumps it up to about 30% off.
"Weeelllll! I guess that's OK then!" I said to myself and brought the box up to the service desk.
The lady DID give me a face when I ask to key in the code. I guess that's just the preview of what my wife will do when she sees yet another giant Lego box hogging up space in the closet...
Do not get me wrong, I appreciate the heads up, as many others likely do as again you can occasionally find a good deal during TRUs BOGO50s but I would say the good deal is the exception and not the rule.
So thank you for mentioning it as is turns out the TS was at RRP and was part of the BOGO50 so they are about 95 each if you get two (instead of 119.99 each)
