Toys R Us Having Buy 1 Get 1 Half Off Sale This Week

This week at Toys R Us stores, pretty much all Hasbro products are buy 1, get 1 half off, and not just of the same brand. So you could buy 1 Transformers figure and 1 Star Wars figure, and the discount still applies. This sale will continue until the 18th, according to in-store signage, and since TRU has been told by Hasbro to set aside the August street date on almost everything Transformers, they have a lot of new product right now. Good luck, and good hunting!
