Thanks. Went there and the employees didn't know anything about this. Bought the 2 Muppets' BD for $9.99.

What other titles would be part of this deal? I tried going on their website with no luck. Reason why? All Sony BD are going to $3.99 on BF at TRU, most likley reason for this sale yesterday.

Thanks joltman for the post here. I didn't end up opening the thread there because of the way it was worded (I mistakenly assumed it would have been some high priced titles so still not going to interest me) and only stumbled upon it due to your thread here.

FYI, these will be $3.99 each on Black Friday (well, and Thanksgiving night). Granted, TRU will be absolutely mobbed that day, but great deal if you plan on going there anyway...

I'm curious if they had Hook (Jumanji was in the list), but I guess it's a moot point because the deal is dead (just 11/11-11/12 according to the ad). I would've liked to have gotten a few of these for $5 each, but it wasn't meant to be.

There are 2 TRUs in my area both of which are about 10 miles away. Ironically, I was forced to drive right by 1 TRU on the 11th and couldn't stop in for even 5 minutes because in order to hit my mandatory 50 hours per week at work (overtime unpaid of course) I literally didn't have 5 minutes to spare before Friday midnight. As I was driving by I was cussing/cursing out my work and my evil bosses under my breath. Then I was forced to drive by the same TRU on the 13th, but I didn't go in because the deal was over.

Manzana, you should totally start making videos in the vein of KrazyJason, although the opposite. You can video all the deals you miss out on. It would be hilarious and I would definitely subscribe!

Yes! Glad I didn't miss out then. Although I'll have to brave the crowds. TRU opens at 9 PM on Thanksgiving.

TRU opens at 9 PM? That's worse than Walmart's 10 PM. I'm not going to expend my limited energy for a busy BF on a handful of Sony BDs at TRU, especially as it would be a 20 mile round trip drive when I'd rather be home trying to sleep for the dreaded 10 PM at Walmart and midnight everywhere else.

I picked up 6 of these on the 12th. Grabbed both Muppets flicks, both Stuart Little flicks, Jumanji, and Zathura. I know they'll be a dollar cheaper each on Black Friday, but that extra $6 is not worth dealing with the Toys R Us crazies on that day.

I agree, and I would've done the same thing if my work and scheduled had allowed me to make it inside TRU. In fact, I was going to buy exactly those BDs that you listed, except for Stuart Little where I already got suckered at $7.99. I'm not sure if Hook was part of the sale, but I would've gotten it if it had been. It's strangely one of my favorite movies, and I love the soundtrack (John Williams' last really good one).

My only possible hope is to PM the TRU ad at Walmart since there's no way I'm making it to TRU on BF, but it's yet to be seen if Walmart will PM BF ads this year and also whether Walmart carries a single one of these BDs in stock. Chances of success: 10%. So I'll probably wait until next year to pick these up for $5 or $6 somewhere.

"Hook" wasn't part of the sale, don't worry.

I wanted to grab "Winged Migration" also, but I didn't have anything to pair it with.
