I posted this morning about a deal on Toy Story 1 & 2 next week at Toys ‘R Us.
I was excited about that deal, but the deal might be even sweeter, today (3/20) only, if you buy Princess & the Frog there and pre-order both Toy Story movies at the same time.
Here’s the way this works:
*At Toys “R Us, there are reportedly pre-order cards in the movie section (the cards are reportedly the size of a movie case and are on a red and white sheet of paper with Buzz, Woody, and Jessie). Pick one of these up along with a copy of the Princess and the Frog Blu ray combo.
1. Buy the Princess & The Frog Blu Ray – $26.99
2. Give the pre-order card to the cashier – pre-order the Toy Story 1 and 2 combo packs (they will charge you $5 for each pre-order)
You will receive a $15 credit instantly for pre-ordering both movies (some people are reporting that they received a $20 instant credit)
Use your $10 Princess & The Frog printable coupon
Total OOP = $11.99 ($6.99 if you get a $20 instant credit rather than $15)
Then, on Tuesday, follow the steps here for buying Toy Story 1 and 2. You will be charged $16.99 per movie because you prepaid $5 for each movie already. Use your two $10 upgrade coupons plus the $10 promotional instant discount and you end up paying $3.98 out of pocket for both movies. Your total out of pocket for all three movies is $15.97 (or $10.97 if the $20 comes off instantly at your store).
DISCLAIMER: I have not tried this myself, but many people are reporting on Slick Deals that this is working. I bought my copy of Princess and the Frog at Toys ‘R Us, but didn’t even know about the pre-order option. I am actually thinking about going back out to do this deal tonight before it is over!
UPDATE: I just went and did this deal and I paid $7.01 out of pocket for Princess & The Frog Blu Ray/DVD combo and the pre-orders for Toy Story 1 and 2. Some people have asked if the $10 off promotion will still come off next week if you pre-order both movies and I can’t guarantee that part will work, but the way I look at it is that I originally paid $16.99 (plus tax) for Princess & The Frog this week and I was going to pay $13.98 for both Toy Story movies next week, so even if the $10 doesn’t come off next week, I will still be paying almost $10 less than I had originally planned to pay. Kelly also alerted me on Facebook that you get free Kissing Frogs with a $30 Princess & The Frog purchase. If you buy the DVD and two egg decorating kits (priced at $1.79/each), you get the kissing frogs for free, too!
