ABL Report : TRU Clearance Blast

ABL and Nomo went to Toys R Us to check out the clearance blast.

Nomo wanted to get the Mega BlocksDespicable Me Minion Lab Playset he saw online.

minion-megaNomo wanted to use the coupon to get an additional 25% off.

They found it in store.  They didn’t go a good job of marking the prices correctly.



When ABL and Nomo got to the check out, they found out their coupon didn’t work.

Shay Fei Fei and Nomo looked at the coupon again and researched the Terms and Conditions:

Offer available in store only. Quantities limited; no rain checks. Excludes gift cards, Red Hot Deal items, Buyer Protection Plan, phone orders, Special Orders, all fees, and shipping. One coupon per customer. Not valid with any other “R”Us offer for same item or on prior purchases. Must be surrendered at time of purchase. Value is forfeited if item is returned. Void where prohibited. Valid USA only. Cash value 1/100 of 1¢.

Apparently according to the sales person the price wasn’t ending in a number 8.  Only prices ending in an 8 that are on sale are eligible for the discount.

ABL and Nomo paid for the item then went around the store to look for items ending in 8.

ABL tip, if you’re going this week to use your 25% off coupon at your local Toys R Us, look for clearance items with prices ending in 8 or if you don’t need really need to, skip it.

A SALE doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a good deal.

Smart Shopping!
