From CAG:

Please bare with me folks, this is my first post so I'm sure you guys probably don't think I'm much of a credible source, but I seen the Toys'R'Us ad for 12/14 - 12/20 and about the 7th page in on the bottom right hand corner, it has the complete Rock Band 2 bundle for Xbox 360 or PS3 for $109.99. And next to it it says you get a free $25 gift card with the purchase of the bundle. I'm from Indiana, so I would assume this deal is for the US only. Hope this helps!!

FRIDAY DEC 19 UPDATE (by DOA75):
TRU BELL GARDENS, CA must of got a shipment last night. I scored one, no questions asked! Rang up $119.06 with GC! I originally went to get a copy of Rainbow 6:Vegas 2 for $20 and they were OOS, asked on a whim if they had Rock Band 2, they did! See post #1954 for my receipt.


EDIT: How is this deal a scandal? It's in Toy's R Us weekly ad so it's a legit deal. It is both BB & WM policy to match the price of competitors prices on the same available brand and model, so yeah this deal is valid until this saturday ( December 20) But Rock Band 2 will NOT be $109 after saturday.

-------------------------------


Text on front of gift card states it expires 1/31/09. Users have pointed out that would not be valid where overriden by State Law. If the expiration is a concern for you, simply buy something with the (expiring) gift card, and return it--TRU will give you a new gift card back without the expiration date as part of the return (they match the payment method used).

Ad states that gift card isn't activted until 12 hours after purchase... but SD'ers have used the gift card with success on a 2nd purchase immediately after the RB2 purchase.

Wal-Mart will price match the discounted price, but will usually not match the gift card offer.
Typically, Wal-Mart requires an actual ad from a paper, not a printed PDF or other form.

Sales person confirmed with me it was pricemistake. They couldn't catch it earlier.
So this will not be regular price for Rock Band 2. And you will not see this price soon again.

Ok i knew i wasn't seeing things. I am in Dallas and my hard copy toysrus ad which i picked up at the store on sunday says sales prices valid dec 14-18. I went online to look at my ad and it shows a new ad valid for dec 19-20, the old ad with the rockband deal is no longer online. Why would our ad end on the 18th and others end on the 20th? That bites!

I think you're right, that's why I got a PS3. But I DID need some sort DVD player since my home theater doesn't load DVD's anymore, but for some reason still plays CD's, and I can use it for surround sound on my HDTV. So my brother and I went halves on a PS3 with the Sony Card, came out to $283 and change SHIPPED. My old DVD on the home theater (Zenith) didn't look too good anyways on an Aquos 46" LCD, so I think we got a pretty good deal, play Blu Ray, DVD's, games, internet browser (like we need another one).
