STEAL: Toys 'R' Us sale using Target coupons & price matching

Okay, modifying this entry to clarify stuff. The sale prices are from Sunday's TRU ad as well as the ad from Friday's TCH. Take BOTH ads because the prices for toys found below are from one or the other. Go to Target, who now price matches, and use the Target coupons to get the final price. Note: While Target does not honor % off sales the TRU ads contain not just the % off but also the final price, which Target DOES honor. The actual policy states: "Prices advertised only as a percent off or $ off" If you have any problems just ask for a GSTL.

Mr. or Mrs. Potato Head is on sale for $3.99 at Toys 'R' Us. I don't know if TRU takes manufacturers printable coupons (I think they do) and there is a $2 off coupon at That brings the final price down to $1.99!!

Where to get coupons

BEST PLACE: The Sunday newspaper!

In stores:

Blinkies – Found on various store aisles these little machines spit out coupons as you pull them out. Most blinkies have little lights that blink hence the name.

Catalinas – Receipt-like coupons printed at the register. Not all stores have Catalinas (such as WinCo). These are typically NOT printed on the back of the register receipt.

Hang/Wine Tags – Found around the neck of a bottle with a little piece of string or rubber band.

Peelies – Coupons found on certain products that peel away from the product.

Tearpads – Coupons on a tear away pad. Typically found in a display and not directly on the product.

Other ways:

Home mailers - sign up for products online or even contact a company to either complain or complement their products. Click here for a blog with over 200 links to companies that will mail you coupons!

Internet coupons - There are many places online that you can print coupons from. See links below for printable online coupons.

Magazines – Pretty much all magazines will have coupons in it. Better Homes & Gardens, Sunset, Parenting, Working Mother are a few. The BEST magazine with coupons is All You magazine.
