[Toys R Us] TRU: Magic: The Gathering Trading Cards - 30% OFF...

Hi there,

If you collect Magic: The Gathering Trading Cards, Toys R Us is having all the sets at 30% OFF, including the big boxes, single packs, etc. It's in-store only, bonus sale that isn't in the flyer, selection varies per store. Clearance are not included. It ends July 29, no raincheck.

If the signs are not up, just price check. It should all ends in 95.

Just so people know, this isn't really a deal. Even with 30% off, the products are still over MSRP.

Hi there,

MSRP in US dollar or Canadian?

Ya oftentimes you can still get MTG from gaming stores for less, but at 30% off you do find some nice gems. I got the last round of Commander decks for like $25 each after the various discounts and sales TRU had. So I'll swing by the old store today and see if anything worth grabbing. Sometimes you get lucky ;)

This is true in most cases, but like LoANeal mentioned, you can snap up some boxed products that hobby shops tend to price above MSRP because the contents are worth more than the sticker price.

I'd cop some Commander decks at 30% off. Too bad there isn't really a TRU that stocks MTG close by.

That one is tricky. You can check MTG's website but honestly it's more personal knowledge. Booster packs at game stores can range from $4 CAD (which is proper) to about $5 CAD (when they wanna rip you off). Boxed product changes with the type, but honestly Commander decks usually run between $40-$45 so if you can get em for $30.00 or under you're set. Really cost out booster packs from things like Fat Packs and if you hit under $4.00 a pack after tax you got a decent price. I've seen some Shadows over Innistrad packs hit like $3.00 at TRU's last sale, just really don't like the set xD

Anyone know if you can combine with the 15% off store-wide?

Why bother proxy at all when Cockatrice exists? Way easier less effort and you save trees!

If I'm honest I haven't actually spent money on MTG in about 2 years, Most times they pay for themselves, usually pull some super rare card and sell it back to the store for the next set xD

Hi there,

Uh, the 15% only applies to regular price items only (ends with a 9). :p
