Toys R Us Holiday Sale: Simple Buy 1, Get 1 Half Off

Everyone always keeps us apprised of game sales. Around this time of year, readers are especially interested in saving a few bucks, and we don't blame 'em one little bit.

The latest sale could really help to either boost your own collection or serve as a "one for me, one for you" opportunity. And you know, while some sales are sorta complicated and feature a lot of caveats and requirements, this one from Toys R Us is as simple as can be: buy any video game, any hardware accessory, or any strategy guide, and get a second item of equal or lesser value (in the gaming category) for 50% off. This offer lasts all the way until December 24 so feel free to browse about and find a way to take advantage; there are lots of games out there, now that the fall assault is over. Which games did you miss? How often do you see cut-and-dry quality deals like this? Look, the holidays can be all sorts of stressful for everyone, so it's always a bonus to have a retailer be all consumer-friendly and give us a break. We deserve it, right?

We would suggest that you be nice and buy one game as a holiday gift. Of course, the receiver doesn't need to know about this sale, and that you got a game you want for half price.

Man, I hope I can get my big check in time so I can buy-out their gaming section.

And rename it, "Games-All-"MINE"

Just what I was going to ask. I certainly hope so, because I have a huge list of games I would like to catch up on a bit.

I saw this on another site. Isn't it "Buy 1, Get 1 50% off" like this pic says?

I think someone got a little too excited and comprehended the ad wrong. It is buy 1 at full price, get a second game at half off.

If it was truely buy 1, get 1 free, it would be the deal of the century.

I like how the add says "It's our biggest video gaming event ever!"

And yet they have this offer several times a year.

Oh well, there's still a few good 1/2 tons of games I still need.

So I'll agree to settle for 1/2 ownership of their gaming section.

It's a good deal. Especially when it comes to those cheaper 20 games.

Ben,

Your first report was "crack" to me.

But your fixed-it made me "crash" hard.

Damn, now I need a "Buy 1-Get 1 free" 12-step program.

Soooo, ya know of any support groups???????

This deal is not what it is cracked up to be. Don't bother with it. I have a 10% discount at toysrus and it still is not worth it. Your better off with buy 2 get 1 free. Btw, the best deal I have seen is buy 2 get 2 free from game crazy. Which was so damn amazing >.<
