There is some speculation that Wii games will be B2G1F starting Sunday. When they have done this promotion in the past could the games also be purchased online?

When they do the sale every Oct (Buy 2 get 1 free) on all video games - 75% of them qualify for the promo online. Online you'll see a buy 2 get 1 free caption under your game. At the store they all qualify. They usually don't do the buy 2 get 1 free after Oct, I hope your specualtion is right!

I was in TRU Monday & 2 of the "oldtimers" that work there told me they think they will do another b1g1 (or b2g1) before Christmas, but didn't know for sure when... Hope they're right!! :yup:

Just to remind folks, there is also a buy 1 get 1 free at KB on BF. I think I will check out their stock before deciding to do this deal. I bought 6 games on the buy 2 get 1 free back in October and still want to get some more titles. I LOVE our Wii!!!

Question - If I went today and bought 3, then went back for an adjustment on Sunday, would they honor it?

Our KB has a very bad selection of games and I saw no Wii games the last time I checked it.

Does anyone know if the Wii Play that comes with the remote would be considered a game and eligible for this promotion?

I went in to my store today and asked if the games went on sale or they had a deal like buy 2 get 1 free, could I bring back what I bought and get an adjustment and the mgr told me yes.

I bought 6 games during the F&F sale. The only plus was I was able to order the not yet released titles at 20% off. The next weekend it was B2G1, it was online, and you couldn't get titles that hadn't been released yet. I think I'm going to be taking the majority of those back bought at 20% and do the B2G1 deal instead.

I just got back from my store. They were also selling the Wii's so there was a line of about 40 people in front of me. Some of the games were already sold out but I was able to get Olympic games, Playground, and Ratatouille. I also used my coupon to get the $10 gift card. If any of you are heading out try to get there as early as possible.

I Will NEVER buy from Toys R Us online again! During one of there 2 day sales - I ordered 2 Wii games (on Friday) - got the confirmation email and my CC was charged... the following Tuesday - I get a cancellation email with NO REASON! (Charge still pending on CC)... I call - woman said she couldn't figure out WHY yhey cancelled, since both games were still in stock - I could re-order ... but the prices had gone up! It took me 3 days and 3 managers before one agreeed to honor the prices and took a new order. Once again - new charge on CC... I get a confirmation email and then 2 days later am told that one of the games is backordered (Even though it is STILL on their site at the higher price!!!)... I have HAD it with TRU and would not count on receiving any games you may order from them in time for Christmas! :mad:

I just got back from TRU, got a Wii and the girl ringing me up, said they were selling 60 today and saving the rest back for BF. I asked how many and all she would say is more than 100 but less than 200. I also got a few games, couldn't pass up the Buy Two get one Free deal. I also was able to use my $10 off g. card and the $25 gift card I got from buying Mario Galaxy!!!! So glad now I don't have to go to TRU on BF, I hate the lines....

I just ordered online and was able to preorder several games with the b2g1. One of them is Super Smash Brawl that is on the top of my DS list. It does not come out until Feb 08. For Xmas I will give him a picture and say coming soon. I ended up getting it for free w/some other names he gave me. Now I am set for Valentine's Day and for Easter 2008. He is pretty much done except for the pre-orders that are coming out this week that I have ordered at Gamestop. ahhhhh now I can rest.

I know walmart will price match on BF so you can always take the KB ad and match buy 1 get 1 there. I know I am going to. b1g1 is much better than b2g1

I may be wrong but I thought I read Walmart doesn't price match B1G1 free items on that day.

Super Smash Brawl is supposed to ship out on 12/8, I just pre-ordered it today from ToysRus.com I did the buy 2 get 1 free, one of the titles was out of stock after check-out so right now it only shows me buying one game and getting the second one free. Hopefully it stays that way. ;) **Ugh, Feb. release date. Had to cancel my order as we'll be moving before Feb.**

we went this morning and I wasn't able to get the carnival game that I wanted but she said I could keep checking back. I can bring back the game I bought but didn't want and do an exchange then.
