This is my first time doing thise hope I'm doing it right. TRU is having the 2 for $10 on August 9th-15th and also will be giving out $10 gift cards with a $30 purchase.

I frigin' knew it!

I had a feeling that they would be doing the same thing as they did for the Transformers ROTF figures.

I want that giftcard NOW!

Too bad my TRU still only has what's left of the first shipment of figures they received. After 3 different truck orders the only new items they've gotten in stock are more of the Ripcord 12" figure. So I doubt this great opportunity to purchase a ton of figures like I did initially will manifest anything great here in Montgomery.

The first time TRU did the 2 for 10, they had nothing, but the Firefly & Barbeque exclusives. Then after the sale, they restocked with the Helix wave. Hope they still have something for the second sale.

You can still buy now and receive your refund later. Keep your receipt and they'll honor it.

just one question:

how come there are 3 different item numbers?

but i'm glad i can pick more figs. hopefully TRU will have the newest waves.

not to mention to get rid of those 50 figs of dessert duke, 80 figs of baroness, 140 figs of snake eyes, etc.

ntfrceshockwave
08-01-2009, 05:41 AM
3 item #'s for collection 1, collection 2, and the TRU Exclusives have a different #. In the first sale they werent mentioned but still worked. This time they advertise it notice the pic.

My local TRUs haven't even gotten the Firefly and Barbeques back in stock since the sale or the Helix wave. Just the same Wave 1 and 2 stuff since launch day. Annoying to say the least.

08-01-2009, 07:10 AM
let's be sure it's the same sale like last time. they have specific item #'s this time around so I hope it's not just limited to bbq, break and desert duke. in other news, if it proves to be the same great sale as b4, I will be buying 6 at a time and get my $10 gift card. (6 pit commandos then 6 ice vipers then helix and whoever else I missed) We can't lose!!

This is nuts. If it is the same sale as before plus $10 gift card for every $30 you spend... That opens the door to so many possibilities. I guess all those gift cards I'll be getting will go to buying the video game.

too bad that store is only in 5 states...

Meijer: Store Locator (http://www.meijer.com/custserv/store_locator.jsp)

seriously, the Targets around here haven't had much except the exclusives and the first two batches of the usual suspects. at least I can use the ad to price match if I see anything I want. plus, I'll be getting some money back when Target has their sale since they'll match their own prices within 2 weeks.

When I first tried to cash in on the 2 for 9.99 sale at Toys r us, I really didn't find anything that I wanted in the way of newer figures. I even visited a couple of them, then I went to Target and then Wal-Mart and found nothing that wowed me! So, I took my Toys r us ad to my local Target, where they just recently started to price match competitors ads, went to the Joe endcap and found the new wave of figures just waiting for me! I did this two days in a row with no problems. Just wish I had picked up the G.I. Joe Pit Commando and Elite-Viper. So keep this in mind when shopping during this sale!

Put it this way, all the $7.99 figures will be part of this sale. In case you didn't know there are 2 different collections and each one has a different sku #, and the exclusive bbq and firefly share a seperate sku #. So in total there are 3 SKU #'s. Which all 3 are part of the sale.

Same as some, the first sale was a complete bust here in Boise. Was there when they opened the doors on that Sunday and they had pretty much only the exclusives.

However, I might check this out as I've been waiting on the vehicles and I would love to get a Crusher and Dragon Hawk. That will easily hit the $30 mark. Cha-ching!

Thanks for the heads up!

I can't wait for this sale! Loved the first 2 for TRU sale and will be going back for (hopefully) more! The first sale they only had the first wave of each collection and wave 2 of collection 2. Hopefully this time they have waves 3 & 4 of both collections as well as the TRU exclusive Snow Serpent and Bench Press figs.

Damn...this kills me. I've got no TRU's near me at all...made a big round-about trip a couple weeks ago to take advantage of the LAST 2 for $10 sale, but there wasn't much in the way of cool figures. Now a bunch of TRU's are starting to get the new waves, and they're going on sale again...but there's no way I can make that trip again.

At the register when 30 bucks of merch gets rung up it automatically issues a 10 dollar gift card. So technically you should be able to get both deals. Just remember be real nice to whoever is at customer service. It really helps.

Is this a nation wide deal, or just your area? I have yet to see this advert. in my area, but my TRU usually stays on top of there stock and updates regularly.....I mean the whole front of the store AND a good chunk og the action figure isle are FULL of ROC stuff, so it would be good if they did this and had stocked just before it....Wont hold my breath though as this seems like a ploy to try and dwindle runs 1 and 2 to make way for 3 so they dont end up sitting on them......

I hope everyone catches the small print who expected to buy tons and use the gift card at the same time:

*FREE GIFT CARD OFFERS: In-store only. See back of card for Terms & Conditions. Gift Card offers expire 8/15/09. Quantities limited, no rain checks. Limit 1 per guest. Madden NFL 10 & GI Joe Collectible Gift Card are valid beginning 6 hours after activation and expire 9/30/09, except where prohibited.

Key points, 1 per guest, so more than $30 won't get you more cards at one time, and 6 hours after activation before you can use them.

6 hours after activation... LAME! I was planning on going to one TRU, getting 6 figs, then heading to the other one across town and getting 6 more figs for $20 after using the $10 gift card... oh well, guess I'll still use the gift cards though at some point.

I can speak from past experience with the Transformer Gift Card that you can only get one gift card per order however you can do this as many times as you want throughout the sale.

For example, I bought $30 worth of TF on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc and got a gift card each day until I had enough to get the Pit for $25 at the end of the sale.

You are better off buying smaller quantities more often than spending $300 and expecting 10 gift cards.

They will do the difference on 18 of the figures and you will still have to pay $7.99 for the 19th one since the sale is 2 for $10 and must buy 2 for the sale price.

I am not sure you will get a gift card however, since past promotions like that said "prior purchases excluded" but you can ask and see.

Yeah, it seems that they either didnt add these item #'s / skus to the sale by accident or are not including them for the online purchases.

If you check the close up of the ad in the beginning of this thread, the item # for the new wave is included though...guess we will just have to go in-store for them....

It must be a problem with their website. Collection 1, and 2 have their own skn#'s, the other skn# belongs to the exclusive figures. The last ad for the 2 for 10 didn't feature the exclusive ones even though it still worked. Also on the TRU website it says save $10 on a $30 hasbro purchase and save $20 on a $60 hasbro purchase. They probably need to fix what they are advertising online.

ntfrceshockwave
08-09-2009, 02:12 AM
I guess the sale for the hasbro items is only on certain hasbro toys. Good news to those who want to purchase the pit its on sale for $69.99 and free shipping.

I can't wait till tomorrow morning. I have a ten dollars off a 50 dollar purchase card and any Joe purchase over 30 gets me a $10 giftcard. I'm going to stock up on custom fodder and probably get a Steel Crusher or Dragonfly.

Jeffrozup
08-09-2009, 03:51 AM
you're right i added 6 figures to my cart to see if i would get the 2 for 10 and it did not work.

The discount will only work ONE time per order online. Thus if you add 4 figures to your cart, you will get 2 of them for $10 and the other 2 will be $7.99 each.

But ALL ROC figures will be on sale in stores. This includes the wave 1, 2 and 3 figures PLUS the TRU Exclusives.

I did not find my TRU ad in the paper this morning. Although I checked online and the sale is on... O well.. I went last night to TRU and bought 4 figs at regualre price 35 bucks for just 4 figs.. Today I can by 6 figs for 30... I knew about the sale, but I also knew that TRU honered there price match... I did this becuase last time there was a sale like this, both my TRUs were mauled and nothing was left by 11am.... So in order for me not to miss out on the figs I wanted i went late last night to get what they had out without having to worry about getting there early in the morning.

I just got back from my local TRU and their computer was not properly set for the sale. TRU computers adjust the gift card off of each item and then charge you for the gift card. Unfortunately, it was adjusting before the sale price then the 'sale' price was adjusted to $5 each and then the gift card was charged. Effectively negating any sale or free gift card. After being told by the cashier that I didn't understand the promotion, the manager returned two of the figures to get the price correct. If your heading out today, make sure you check your receipt!

Hit up Toys R Us this morning, they had a lot of figs (No Dr. Rex wave yet!), besides that they had every figure up to date besides Helix, pit commando, crimson neo viper and elite viper. Picked up an Ice Viper, PP Snake Eyes (grey timber), Eel, General Hawk, Sgt Flash, and Desert Scarlett. Also picked up another Mole pod for 12.99 at Kmart.

I had the same problem as 03Mach1 had. Although I wasn't paying attention and only realized it when I got home. Guess I have to make a trip back.

By the way, you do get the $10 gift card for purchasing the game.

so i just took my reciept from last friday in and got the following, and im still alil confused by it... i originally purchased 26 joes.. she refunded them i added 2 (to make an even 28) so for every 4 figures it was 31.38 with tax and i got a ten dollar gift card.... so i walked out of there with 2 more guys and $70 in gift cards... part that sucks is you have to wait 6 hrs for them to activate, so i had them set some joes aside for me so i can go back in 6 hours and get them :)

so really you don't get a 'gift card' for free, you are actually paying for it....

Not at all man. Exactly SHE was being so condescending about it. Ive been in retail management for 8 years, 5 with Target. I know how promotions work, I know how to read a receipt, and most of all I know how to ADD. Hopefully they will have it figured out by the time i go back for round 2 later. lol

hello all-

Don't know if this is nationwide, but there's a glitch in the TRU system regarding the 2 for 10 figure sale with the free 10. gift card...

The TRU computers will give the 2 for 10 price, but does NOT free charge the gift card (so total for 6 figures is 41.00). That's not the sale as advertised, so bring it to the cashier's attention!!

I had to wait for 2 store managers, who said I had to pay the 41.00, then they refunded me the 10.00 difference...
both of them contacted TRU corporate this morning to get the issue resolved, but for now make sure you're not getting ripped off when you buy!!

Also, you can't use the gift card at time of purchase (it doesn't activate for 6 hours).

One final note-- when they override to refund, your TRU Rewards points will be deleted, so make sure you have them re-scan your card so you get the proper credits, or call TRU's 800 # to get the credits retroactively!

It's a great deal, but TRU is NOT handling it as well as they could-- be savvy, and you'll be all set... happy hunting!

You do get a free $10 gc seperate of the 2 for 9.99 sale AJ, it looks like you got hosed by the same Issue that Mach and I were dealing with. You should be getting 6 figs for 31.38 not 4. And a GC for each 6 figs free and clear!

I know you're only trying to stick it to TRU and thats cool.

But i hate it when people(Scalpers etc) take advantage of this deal and then plug the shelves with their returns. The returns don't sell then no new stock gets put out.

I hate people who mass buy and do this.

08-09-2009, 02:07 PM
So here's my TRU story I lucked out!
Was at TRU as the doors opened this morning. To my surprise hey had a bunch of the wave 3 figures. I bought 4 elite vipers, 3 eels, 2 crimson neovipers, 3 pit commandos (basically every army builder they had) plus Hawk and Deep Six.
that's 14 guys should be 70$ plus it's a 10$ gift card for every 30$ of joe product bought. Well none of the sales rang out correctly. They tried ringing 7 guys each on 2 transactions to get the gift cards to ring out. Well 7 rang up for 40$ which should've been 35$ so they somehow thought I was paying for the gift card. what really happened I think is that the 7th guy rang up for normal price as it's 2 for 10, not 5 each. plus tax is about 40$ anyways they rang it out, gave me the gift card, then decieded that to make it work, they'd have to take 20$ off the next 7 guys, they accomplished this by making those 7 2$ each, meaning I paid 14 and some change after tax for those 7. So I paid around 50$ for 14 figures, plus got a 10$ gift card meaning I really got 14 figures for 40$ thanks to some non-working promotions and bad math lol.

That's 2.85 per figure!

All wave 1 and 2. No new figs or any vehicles other than the ATV and gunship.

Pretty disappointing.

I managed to haul my sore ass out of bed at 9:30, get myself dressed and even drove myself to the Toys R Us this morning!

I got there about 10:05am, since I am running a little slow with the surgery and all. I see a couple people who moved faster than me get into the store already. I waddle in and go to the Joe display, I see some Elite-Vipers, lots of Helix and Flash's, some Crimson Vipers and a Neo-EEL. No Hawk's and No PIT Commandos. Ah well.

I picked up 3 more Elite-Vipers, the Neo-EEL, 3 Flash's and a Sgt Stone. While I'm looking two other guys are talking about the Joe-movie and taking pictures of the display setup.

I go to check out and they can't find the "special" GI Joe giftcards, so I say it doesn't really matter to me and they give me a generic $10 giftcard. Ends up being around $42 for 8 figures.

I leave and put my stuff in the car, and grab my TRU receipt from Thursday, I go back in and grab 2 extra figures (to add to my 4 from the receipt). I take the receipt up to the register to get the difference back since I paid full price for the figs last Thursday. They accidentially only gave me the difference back on 2 of the figs, and sold me the other 2 and gave me another giftcard (They had found the Joe giftcards). I still need to go back and get my money back for the other 2 figs...

So I go to leave and the other 2 Joe-fans are outside talking, I had overhead that they were going to come back when the store found the Joe-giftcards, so I told them they had found them and they thanked me and saw my COBRA tattoo on my leg. They asked if I had seen the movie and I said no, I had been in surgery for my appendix on Thursday and missed seeing the movie so far and they asked if I was looking for the Helix figs.. I said no, I had been looking for the PIT Commandos but didn't see any. Then the one guy says he had gotten 4 today (he beat me to em!) and he'd be willing to give me 2 for his cost! So I gave him my non-joe $10 giftcard and he gave me 2 PIT Commandos!

I thought it was really nice of him, and he said he just liked to keep things out of the hands of scalpers, which I think we can all agree with. Anyway just wanted to share my TRU story, which ended up happily ever after for once.

I can continue to feed my PIT commando'itis now http://forums.fighting118th.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

cool. So the TRU employees didn't care that you got 2 gift cards within 10 minutes? So theoretically I could get 6 figs, take them to my car, go back in and get 6 more, and get 2 gift cards?

Cool about the guy giving you the PCs too!

At the Redwood City, CA TRU I lucked out and bought:

1 PP Baroness
1 D6 Duke
1 Dr. Lewis
1 Para-Viper
1 RA Ripcord
1 AA SE

For some reason these weren't in the store's system yet, so they scanned 'em all in using some other Product Number.

$32 + the gift card. Yey!

Now here's the sad part.

I wasn't sure I was going to keep them all. I bought everything except for SE, Duke and Baroness as trade stock for fellow Tankers. I realized that if I couldn't trade them off, I would want to return them...

However, since the correct product number wasn't on the receipts, I might have been stuck with them. I swung by another TRU on the way home, I decided to sort it out with the store there and ensure my receipt would be good for the wave I just bought.

The guy behind the counter was extremely helpful. And we decided that the best thing would be for me to return all the figures now, he'll enter the correct Product Number for my wave into the store computer, then I'll rebuy them all.

Well, after all that...my credit card was declined. I had enough to buy it the first time, but since returns aren't posted to the account for a few days, my card was max'ed. My ATM didn't have enough either, and I had no cash on me.

At that point, I had to let them go. I ended up just rebuying Duke and Baroness with what I had in my checking and let the others go. The guy did let me keep the gift card though.

That's what I get for being irresponsible with my money.

Just a heads up. I bought 4 figures today from TRU. They rang up 7.99 each so it totaled 31.96. So I received the $!0 gift card. Then the sale price is credited AFTER the card is rang up so basically I got 4 figures and a $!0 gift card for 21.39. My receipt looked like this:
GI Joe figures 7.99 x 4 total 31.96
$10 gift card Promo - $0.00
2 for 9.99 Promo 31.96 - 10.57
TOTAL- 21.39

So just grab 4 figures instead of 6 to break 30 bucks and get your $10 gift card. It's basically like 6 figures for 21.39.

This happened to me also. I bought the 8 figures needed to get the $30 total for the gift card and it came to $52 something. I paid and then started thinking that something wasn't right as 4 sets of figures for $9.99 is $39.96 and not $49.96.

The computer rang up the gift card first then the sale price like Mach said. The lady at CS went ahead and fixed the problem and said hopefully it will not happen again during the sale.

Has anybody bought figures after 3 p.m. to see if the computers are fixed. I don't know if the 6 figures glitch is fixed either that somebody else mentioned here.

This happened to me also. I bought the 8 figures needed to get the $30 total for the gift card and it came to $52 something. I paid and then started thinking that something wasn't right as 4 sets of figures for $9.99 is $39.96 and not $49.96.

The computer rang up the gift card first then the sale price like Mach said. The lady at CS went ahead and fixed the problem and said hopefully it will not happen again during the sale.

Has anybody bought figures after 3 p.m. to see if the computers are fixed. I don't know if the 6 figures glitch is fixed either that somebody else mentioned here.

went by twice and got 6 figs each time and ended up with some nice scores as well as 2 $10 toysrus cards. not a bad day

Could have ended up with 3 gift cards if you had taken advantage of the computer glitch. Buy 4 at a time and get a card. You would end up with 12 figures and $30 in gift cards for 60 bucks instead of just $20 in gift cards and 12 figures.

I just back from returning 6 of to Target today after my TRU run this morning. I have done so much returning its sick.

Target 7.99 -> Target 6.99
WalMart 7.88 -> Target 6.99

Target 6.99 -> TRU 5.00

Their system is all screwed up. The gift card eligability is being calculated off the original price. So 4 figs, regularly $32, will trigger the promo. Then when the sale is totaled the 2/9.99 Promo is triggered. Therefore you only need to get 4 figs to get the giftcard, and 2/$9.99 figs. Each set of four needs to rung as a separate transaction. I just did this about 20 mins ago, and got 7 sets of 4 figures, 28 in all, as well as $70 dolars worth of gift cards, for just over $150.

Went to my local TRU today and they had nothing but Peg Warmers. I asked a guy there if they had any in the back and he said (nonchalantly) "all we have is what is here in the display". Well, thanks for at least checking you douche!

Then I went to the customer service counter to try to get a flier to take to Target and the guy just said, "I only have one, you can only look at it and then give it back to me." That was a very poorly stocked and equipped toys r us.

hmmm coulda but I was rushing in and out in between jobs so honestly not worried about it since I never even got a chance to look at receipt until I got home much less knew about the gift card. plus I was more concerned about getting the $800 job I had done in the 4 hours I had allotted my workers. AND we did WOOOT. thats $200 an hour baby sweet, well until my wife takes it all in divorce sigh WTF(

The Duke got kitbashed, and I gave Resolute Duke his M-4, Dusty his body armor and hands, and tossed the pistol and helmet in "The Can" (my coffee can full of extra pieces).

Barbecue got posted on the shelf, and Dusty got his SMG and Flint his Shotgun.

Target price matched but would not match the gift card because it is a Promo offer only at TRU which is fine with me.

I haven't a clue why, but that's not just your store. Maybe they've decided to stop distributing the ad to save money or prevent pricematching? Either way it's rather annoying.

My TRU did that during the first sale. I forgot to get the add out of the sunday paper, figuring I'd get one from TRU. I asked to see the add, then asked if I could get one and was told go to customer service, so I did and they didn't havee any, except for the "cashier's" copy. But I did get the add for this sale though, from the sunday paper.

I got the Joe game for 39.99 for the PS3 plus they gave me the 10.00 gift card. I thought it was only going to be given out with toy purchases, but I wasn't going to complain.

I'll third the sale flyer thing. My TRU wouldn't give me the ad when I asked at the customer service desk they said they only had a few and they were for store employees only, but when I checked out with my game in the video game section I asked the nice older lady ringing me up and she gave me hers.

I went to TRU and at first I got 4 singles and a 1/6th ripcord to make sure I get the $10 gift card. When it was ranged up the checker told me if I paid for the 4 I could use the $10 gift card on ripcord and when she rang that up she told me if I get something else I could get a gift card so I got a second ripcord 12" ( needed some parts for some kit bashes) I went to a second TRU to use the gift card on 2 more, then I had the bright idea to buy 4 use the gift card and pay $10+ tax and get another gift card so I can get 6 joes for $10+ tax I ended up with 4 joes and a $10 gift card that I could use 6 hours later.

i gotta say i am gonna side with toy r us. they shouldn't have to provide customers with the ammunition to go buy the product somewhere else. I wouldnt want to waste the miney i spent printiing those ads just for the person to take it and go somewhere else and buy it.

just buy something at toys r us and exchange it target for the ones you want.

Went today and got a Crimson Viper, Cobra Eel, Elite Viper, and a Hawk along with a Cobra Gunship, which of course all got me the $10 gift card.

What was funny was they were totally out of Snake Eyes and Storm Shadows but had pretty much everyone else. I had to laugh at that.

Still haven't seen any sign of the Doctor, Impact Armor Ripcord or Accelerator Suit Duke. Hopefully like the Helix wave they'll be everywhere soon.

My TRU still has plenty of the the first few waves but strangely none of the Scarletts in blue camo. There were plenty of the exclusives. I bought an extra SE and SS to open. I also got the video game and that put it over $30 bucks. The gift card is sweet.

I never really get as lucky as some 'Tankers, but I decided to stroll into TRU about a half hour before they were to close last night and picked up Arctic SE, Rex - the Doc - Lewis, 2 Para Vipers, 2 Neo Vipers, 2 PP Baronesses, SE w/black Timber, Accelerator Suit Duke, Reactive Armor Duke, and CC sans the chest holes. All 12 for a little over $60 and 3 - $10 gift cards. I believe I will be purchasing a Night Raven now. Me so happy.

You need to spend $30 on Joe items for the $10 gift card....so 6 figures ( @2 for 9.99 ) gets you just about there. I picked up a set of ROC invitations for like $3 to get me to the gift card promotion.

Not sure I understood the above quoted post. If he is saying you have to buy 6 figs, that is not true for my TRU.

4 figs (@ 2 for $9.99) does get you the $10 gift card. The gift card is given based on the non-sale price ($7.99), so 4 @ 7.99 = $31.96.

Did not read the preceding 19 pages, just wanted to clarify at page 20 that 4 does get you the $10 gift card.

I love this sale! I picked up 2 more Neo Vipers, 1 Snake eyes and 1 stormshadow, the ninjas ill keep on card since I have 2 loose ones I love the card art on these figs. Unfortunatley I have to go to Target for recent waves because my Toys R Us still only carries wave1 and 2 but mostle 1.

Well, I went to TRU today. I found 2 PP Baroness, 2 Arctic SE, 2 Dr Rex, and 2 Para-vipers. I went to the main register bought 4, and then came back in and went to the video game register and bought the other 4. So, basically I scored all the figures I wanted for a total of around 20 bucks after I got 2 $10 gift cards.
That TRU sale can't be beat.

As has been stated many times now, FOUR FIGURES will trigger this promo. The Gift Card promo is calculated off of the regular price of the figs. Maybe it's not right, but that's the way they programmed their registers. When the cashier hits total, then the $2/9.99 is triggered.

There's still two more days left for the sale hope I find something worth buying.

You would make $8 on each set of 4 you returned to Target plus get a $10 TRU gift card.

I dont think you'd MAKE $8, since you'd have to pay initially at Target, but you'd make sure you got the figures you wanted at the $5 price, AND get the giftcard.

Luckily TRU had all the figures I wanted this time around so I didn't need to travel to different stores.

Anyone know if I went back to TRU with one of my receipts if they could adjust it ????? or get me another gift card ???? anyone know if it would work ?????

not if your original purchase was still over the $30 limit.

For example. You buy 8 figs for just over $40 and get 1 gift card. You can return 4 figs and keep the gift card (b/c of the screw up in TRUs computer). Then rebuy those figures and get another gift card.

I dont think you'd MAKE $8, since you'd have to pay initially at Target, but you'd make sure you got the figures you wanted at the $5 price, AND get the giftcard.

Luckily TRU had all the figures I wanted this time around so I didn't need to travel to different stores.


Actually you would get money back because Target's regular price or sale price this week is still higher than TRUs 2 for $10 price.

If you bought the figures at Target for $7.99 or $6.99 or $6.49 you will get money back if you also got them at TRU for 2 for $9.99.

Go buy 4 figures at TRU ($21.28 here) and get the $10 gift card. Then go buy 4 figures at Target at $6.49 ($27.66 here) and then return the TRU figures to Target and get the difference back plus get the gift card.

I had several receipts of $6.99 and $7.99 figures from before that I used when I found the ones I needed at either TRU or Target this week. I would go to TRU and buy 4 figures then return them to Target to keep the gift cards for future use and got $6-8 back into my account each time.

I think if you have multiple gift cards you can get another if you use them. Free loot on top of free loot. Now that's balla'.
