[US] Toys R Us Promotions 7/15 - 7/21
It's bizarro world today at ToysRUs.com. Looks like most/all (I didn't check every set) LEGO sets are down to MSRP or lower. They also have some sort of 20% off your entire toy purchase going on - excluding sale items. I thought at first they marked the LEGO sets down to MSRP, so that they would be "on sale" and thus excluded from the 20% off sale. But even the non-sale items, such as Death Star, Imperial Shuttle, etc. seem to be excluded. All LEGO sets seem to be excluded, except the newly added Cosmic Cube. That set doesn't qualify for the free ninjago hidden sword polybag. So I'm guessing TRU considers any set which qualifies for this hidden sword promo to be excluded from the 20% sale.
Anyway, perhaps this will change or get fixed.

-15% Off a purchase of $50-$74.99.
-10% Off a purchase of $49.99 or less.
Orders of $75+ ship free.The coupon is only valid in-store, but it also doesn't stack with other sales and promotions. Most LEGO sets are currently "discounted" down to MSRP, eligible for the free polybag, or both. Most of the new Summer 2012 sets are in-stock online at MSRP.
Good luck finding the Summer Star Wars wave, actual sets on "sale", OR the Ninjago polybag in a store.
TRU makes my brain hurt.
JCPenny used to do the same thing, everything was always on sale with them, they recently switched to a "low prices all the time" model and sales have dropped off.
People would rather "feel like they are getting a deal" rather than actually getting a deal.
People are funny creatures...
But there's also a general 20% off purchases over $75 on-line - excluding sales items, and apparently excluding items which are part of another promo (like the hidden sword polybag offer).
It sounds like there may be hope in-store for negotiating exclusions/discounts (which I've had mixed results with), but I've never had such luck when calling to place an order.
Sadly, Jabba's Palace is out of stock.
Of course, TRU was out of stock (online) for the free Ninjago Hidden Sword polybag, so I didn't get that. "Hey, here's a free polybag with purchase! Only we're out of stock! Ha!" Toys R Us likes to play games with its customers.
I called the store closest to me and asked if the coupon would work on LEGO and I was told yes. I called because of the "Not valid with any other offer" part in the details of the coupon. Just sharing for those that can use it.

I am glad that I have a Lego store here in my city and when I talked to a Lego Rep today they told me they were getting the new stuff come next Monday.
