^ I think only one coupon can be used on one item - but I might be wrong

^ yes, both coupons for each disc, but two additional coupons - TRU wouldn't make any money from the transaction.

actually I'm wrong, it looks like Toys R Us does take both the 10 and 5 dollars coupons in combination. I think I saw that Target only takes the maximum of one coupon per each disc.

TRU will get reimbursed for all the coupons if they submit them. Manufacturers coupons are better than cash, I don't understand why some retailers either don't take them or are resistant to them.

Target takes one manufacturer's and one Target coupon per item, although they have been known to take more than that.

I'm wondering if I should pre-order them today just to ensure I get them tomorrow. I'm not too worried about $15-20 towards another Disney title.

I'm sure copies will be plentiful everywhere. But with the coupons and high number of TRU pre-orders, I'd pre-order if I planned to get it at TRU. And/or get there as early as I could.

I would not be surprised if certain TRU stores had so many pre-orders that they have no copies to put on display, but just piles of them reserved behind the desk, with many never getting claimed.

So TRU will accept a $5 AND a $10 for each title, a total of $30 of saving on both films?

Again, everything at every retail store is always YMMV.

But generally, TRU is the best at taking multiple coupons. Target's official policy is to take one manufacturer's coupon and one Target coupon per item. Target and other chains may take 2 or more manufacturer's coupons per item, but YMMV.

I was planning on buying at Target, since the closest TRU is 30 minutes away. If they are taking both the $10 and $5, though I'm going to go there tonight. Regarding the $20 off another Disney title, that needs to be purchased tonight with the TS 1/2 preorders, correct, and Pixar is not excluded? No coupon required, it just rings up $20 off the total?

So, what are the odds of a "Complete Toy Story trilogy" box-set by the end of the year?

100%?

I went to BlockBuster today during lunch (Get Smart BR Used for $6.99) and notice they already had TS 1/2 out for sale.

No discount if you buy them together.

Honestly...I don't care about a set. I just want these films now. Never owned them. Saw them like crazy then and rarely now.

If that is the case, I imagine we'll get a decent amount of coupons for it courtesy of Disney.

Does it matter if I'm getting 1 and 2 for basically free now?

Anyone see how much they will be at Wal-Mart?

I am out of town, but I have both the $10 and $5 off coupons with me. No Target/Frys/BestBuy/TRU out here in the middle of Washington, but there is a Wal-Mart.

Thanks.

I was thinking the same thing, but given the crazy low prices and movie-money for the first two... I'm not waiting. At most it would just be these releases in a box of some kind. I guess if that's important enough, than wait.

With the chance of getting these things as cheap as 4.99 possibly..why wait?

I didn't notice till now that the TRU deal was on a pre-order, so I'm going to hit Target and hope they take the $5 coupons on top of the $10 ones. But even if they don't, it will come with movie cash, so it's not a bad deal anyway.

Edit: Nevermind, I just looked at the weekly ads and Toys R Us still turns out to be a better deal, because if you buy both movies you get each one for $16.99, and you should be able to use both coupons on each, for $15 of savings on each one.

The link for the $10 coupon still isn't working as of 6:35 a.m. MDT on 3/23/10.

For whatever reason, the Disney Movie Rewards site is having issues. I'm trying to login to an existing account and it keeps returning that an account already exists. Either they have their links crossed on their login page or they're having major issues today.

if you read the small print on both the 5 and 10 coupon it says one coupon per item purchased, other use (2 per disk) constitutes fraud, so yes TRU may take both but you are stealing as they wont be able to get both values back from the manufacturer.
