Can’t wait for Black Friday to pick up the latest AAA titles, but still aching for some sort of discount? An early bird sale is live at Toys ‘R’ Us in their new offer Buy 1, Get 1 40% off. Virtually all in-stock, new condition video games will qualify.
Yes, that means this week’s new release Watch Dogs 2 will also qualify for this sale. Picking up last week’s Dishonored 2 along with Watch Dogs 2 in this sale would run you a grand total of $95.98, which is $24 cheaper than buying each separately online for $120 (pre-Black Friday anyways).
You can checkout a full list of the deals here, and we have a few suggestions on what to buy:
- Nintendo games
- New releases
- Titles that rarely goes on sale
Here you’ll get the most bang for your buck, as many will not even get discounts in the upcoming holiday season. Titles such as Xenoblade Chronicles X, Zelda: Majora’s Mask, and World of Final Fantasy don’t really need discounts to sell, but they are still included and qualify in this ‘Buy 1, Get 40% off’ sale. Note that this sale has also been extended to “toys-to-life” figures such as amiibo and Disney Infinity.
Note: There is another promotion being run on ToysRUs.com where if you purchase more than $100 worth of qualifying items, you can use code 10DOLLARS to get an additional $10 off. It has been confirmed to stack with this current ‘Buy 1, Get 40% off’ sale.
In a rare move, Toys ‘R’ Us is also offering free shipping on any purchase $19 or more. That beats the customary $5.99 we’re use to seeing. That said, there’s always free store pickup if you have a location nearby.
Unfortunately, if you are a Pokemon fan, you’re out of luck with this sale. All Pokemon titles at Toys R Us are running 20% discounts, but the discounts do not stack in the ‘Buy 1, Get 1 40% off sale’. Don’t get too glum, though, because 20% off all Pokemon games means you’re getting the exact same discount buying 2 Pokemon titles as you would buying them in this sale. (Trust us, we did the math). This means you’re still getting a great deal if you pick up either Pokemon Moon or Sun before its Friday release.
The Toys ‘R’ Us sale is valid from now through Saturday, November 19. You must add two items to cart to see the discount. There is a maximum of three discounts per order. You can see full details/terms condition of the sale here.
