Bring out the kid in yourself by shopping at Toys "R" Us. Enjoy the savings you can find when you save money by using Toys "R" Us coupons. And if you'd like to feel even younger, check out the savings tips below. You could save so much money it might be like you don't have to worry about money at all.
More often than not, you can find ways to get free shipping from Toys "R" Us. The easiest way is to spend $100 or more at toysrus.com or babiesrus.com. If the total shipping fee for your cart full of products is below $20, standard shipping will not be free. If it's over $20, you'll still have to pay the fees. There are also a few items that don't count towards your $100, and they include video game consoles/handhelds, software, accessories and the Buyer Protection Plan.
If you'd like to save up to 60% and 70% by barely lifting a finger, head to the clearance and sale sections before you look at anything else. The products here aren't any different from the products that are still selling for full price. Some products might even be brand new.
Want to be in the know for great new sales and special promotions? Sign up for the email newsletter; it'll automatically take you to your own Email Preference Center, where you can customize the kinds of updates you get, whether they're about products or sales from either Toys "R" Us or Babies "R" Us. This is also the place that will let you know about any safety tips or recalls for items you have purchased or are thinking about purchasing.
Always shopping at Toys "R" Us and wishing you could save a little extra money? It might be a good idea to get a Toys "R" Us/Babies "R" Us MastercardÂ®. Every dollar you spend at Babies "R" Us or Toys "R" Us earns you four points, and every dollar you spend on other purchases everywhere else earns you one point. When you gain 1,000 points, you'll get a $10 savings reward certificate. The certificate is good at any Toys "R" Us or Babies "R" Us, and you're allowed to earn up to three certificated a month. And once you're approved for the credit account, you get 10% off your next purchase.
There is also a Toys "R" Us/Babies "R" Us Card that you can apply for which is only good at the Toys "R" Us and Babies "R" Us stores. You earn four points for every dollar you spend, and rules for certificates are the same as for the MasterCardÂ®. You also get the offer for 10% your first purchase after approval.
Both Facebook and Twitter are great ways to get in-the-moment updates of sales and deals. These social media profiles talk trends and events, and they also list specific sales, complete with photos of new products. Look at their Wall to find new deals, or check out their discussions page for tips from other Toys "R" Us customers.

Save between 5% and 26% (if you have good timing--discounts like that won't last long) when you purchase discount gift cards from Gift Card Granny. Card values are anywhere from $50 to upwards of $300.
If you're not sure about the look or feel of anything you're about to purchase online, you should go to the retail store. The store locator gives you addresses, phone numbers and driving directions. Shopping at the actual store is a good idea because there are often different sales and different items in stock than online. You don't have to pay for shipping and if you need to return an item, it only takes a few minutes, instead of days, to get your money back or make an exchange.
Another thing that might save you some extra money is going to a Special Event at Toys "R" Us. There are events for parents and for kids, and there are seminars, ways to get free stuff and special sales events. Check back often to find out what's happening the coming month.
When you join the Rewards "R" Us program, you get $5 in reward certificates every time you spend $150 on certain items. The only limit on how many certificates you can earn is that you can only receive $20 in Toys "R" Us Dollars every month ($60 per earning period). Members also get access to members-only shopping and sale events, exclusive email discounts, rewards when your friends and family buy things off your baby registry and, finally, you can earn free products! These items include diapers, infant formula, greeting cards and LeapFrogÂ® products. The program is free to join, and you can either register for it online or in-store.
For a complete list of ongoing sales, look at the Hot Deals page. Everything from percentages off to "buy this get that" type offers are listed here along with the date they expire. To shop for the items that are included in the special offer, simply click on the link and you'll be automatically directed to where you can shop for them.
Another easy place to find out about special offers and great deals is to check out the weekly ad for your local Toys "R" Us store. Offers will often vary by city and/or state, so be sure to enter your zip code or city and state to find out what's going on sale near you. You can browse by brand or category if you're looking for something specific, or you could just glance through the pages and find out which purchases could save you the most money, such as buying outdoor personal water parks for $100 off.
