Have you been holding off on buying some movie Transformers just waiting for a decent sale? Now is your chance to grab something that you wanted and get a little cash back for it!
Toys R Us is advertising this week that when you buy $25 of Transformers Games and Toys, you will receive a $5 gift card in return for use on your next purchase.
Of note: The advertisement showed a movie Bumblebee gift card, and the voice changing helmet is also on sale for $5 less, putting it at the same price point as competitors ($29.99).
Also it should be mentioned that toysrus.com
has a similar sale, but offers an immediate $5 off for $25 or more online purchases.
And of course (however unfortunate) there is only 1 discount per purchase! Thanks to Canned Pasta for giving us the heads up last week, so we could save our $$$$ for this week!
