Your Buying Strategy of the Day: Monday February 17th, 2014

First thing today is that I saw Kmart has an extra 30% off their clearance items in-store only. This would first require you to actually find items on clearance inside of a Kmart. I know, this is hard to believe. If I happen to be near a Kmart, I might check it out, but otherwise, there’s enough deals to be had elsewhere.

We talked about TRU’s new sale yesterday, and now the results are in. There are some new deals to be had at TRU that weren’t foreseen yesterday. (evil laugh)

Let’s start with the obvious, then I’ll show you some tricks.
76009 Superman Black Zero Escape is $17.99 and eligible for BOGO 50% off.
http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=20000646&skuid=15436956
$13.49 each after discount with a part out of $34.78 or 2.58x.

79008 Pirate Ship Ambush is $89.99 and eligible for BOGO 50% off.
http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=19965396&skuid=15426448
$67.49 each after discount with a part out of $158.48 or 2.35x.

Then of course you have Series 10 and 11 CMFs which are $3.49 each and eligible for BOGO 50% off.
There is a limit of 2 from each series, but it puts the final cost at $2.62 each.

Then we move on to the items you may not have thought of. When TRU first introduces new sets, they are often not marked up for a short period of time. Well there are a ton of new sets coming out March 1st and some of them are already available for ship-to-home from TRU. And oops, they forgot to mark them up before making them eligible for BOGO 50% off. We’ll have to let them know that there’s been a mistake.

We’ll go from low to high. These are all eligible for the discount, they are all at MSRP, they are all eligible for ship-to-home, and they have all been out already in Europe so they should have inventories and part out values.

75031 TIE Interceptor $7.49 each after discount.
http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=29975446&cp=2255956.2273442.2255962.3696486.31151746&parentPage=family
Parts out for $16.28 or 2.17x.

75033 Star Destroyer $7.49 each after discount.
http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=31225016&cp=2255956.2273442.2255962.3696486.31151746&parentPage=family
Parts out for $18.17 or 2.42x.

75029 AAT $7.49 each after discount.
http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=31225056&cp=2255956.2273442.2255962.3696486.31151746&parentPage=family
Parts out for $17.78 or 2.37x.

70127 Wolf Legend Beast $7.49 each after discount.
http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=29975486&cp=2255956.2273442.2255962.3696486.31151746&parentPage=family
Parts out for $27.64 or 3.69x. (items missing)

70125 Gorilla Legend Beast $7.49 each after discount.
http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=31224916&cp=2255956.2273442.2255962.3696486.31151746&parentPage=family
Parts out for $15.02 or 2x. (items missing)

There are also a few more Chima and Start Wars sets at MSRP and eligible for the discount but without inventories. This may be the best way to get a jump on the competition as these sets likely won’t see sale prices for at least a month.
