Toys r us price match. Playmobil

Found 30th Oct 2013
Hiya, I'm not sure if everyone is aware of toys r us price match (I don't realise until today) I was buying playmobil but assume it works in all toys. I got the playmobil toys or amazons much cheaper price and I still got the free advent calendar (for spending £45+ on playmobil) all I had to do was show them amazons price on my phone. Sorry if this price match is well known, maybe I'm the last person to find out lol.
I hope it's useful for others. I spent just over £45 and saved over £40 plus the advent calendar.
This was in store, I'm not sure if they price match online but they don't have a big range of playmobil online anyway. Best going in store.

Just so it's clear, as I've waffled on up there, this is to show that toys r us price match and you get a free advent calendar as well on playmobil.

"How do your prices compare?
Do you match the pricing of other online retailers? We try to offer you competitive pricing, however, we do not have a price matching policy at this time.

Is the "Bricks and Mortar" Toys "R" Us store pricing the same as the Toysrus.co.uk online pricing? Once again, we try to offer you competitive pricing. There may, however, be times when there are differences between in-store and online pricing.
"
Shame they won't price match online; I would have gone for this otherwise.

You're extremely lucky, I've been refused pricematching against amazon on 2 or 3 occasions, different shops! Cold sorry!

If you look in their Christmas Catalogue the information is in there, I was given a free Vtech watch which is a great item for buying £40 of Vtech, great deal.

Good post. I didn't realise they done this. Cheers

Toys r us can sometimes be cheaper than amazon, went in today and got the large pirate ship, play pool and the free pirate advent calendar for £48.83 should of been £92.97 if I'd of paid full price for everything!!

I have also price matched with amazon at toys r us

Thanks OP... I'll take it with a pinch of salt of no guaranteed success and try my luck next time. Didn't know about this so this post was enlightening.

I have successfully Price Matched at Mothercare before to get Amazon prices for something I needed the next day. That worked really well too.

Our local toys r us had a big banner up the other day saying we now price match but don't know the terms.

I actually discovered this today whilst buying playmobil and lego city. On their website it said £53.99 whilst in store £69.99!! I didn't think to match to Amazon, doh!

yes its true they are now price matching..just show them the deal

I asked but was told they price match all but not Amazon and those with online only shops. This is because that matching against Amazon without their high street overheads is deemed not like for like. (TRU quote). Those that get Amazon price match have luckily caught someone that hasn't read all terms and conditions.

I tried this at the Merry Hill store after seeing their banner advertising that they now price matched
and they told me they only price matched other stores within a 10 mile radius.

I got them to price match a talking minion that was available in Argos for £15 less. Showed them on Argos website on my phone easy as pie & very friendly too! They also pricematch their own online deals in store

Isn't that out of stock at Argos, the lady serving me didn't even check if amazon had stock.

What things were refused? The toys r us person I asked said some things aren't included but as I was only interested in playmobil I didn't ask.

Seems like it very hit and miss. Fingers crossed it works for other people although it does seem silly toys r us don't know their own t&cs. Btw it was the Scunthorpe store I visited.

Toys R Us Solihull point blank refused to price match Amazon or any non-bricks and mortar shops. Bit silly as for £8 difference they lost £60 of sales today.

Just an FYI guys I work for toys r us, our official price match rules are that we will price match a local store if the item is in stock. We are not supposed to price match online prices but it is at the managers discretion whether we do or not. Hence some stores doing it and others not, all should do tbh it's a sale at the end of the day.

got a talking minion stuart for 15 pound cheaper weren't going to do it as argos had it out of stock but luckily smyths just opened in Glasgow and said on website available for store pick up so had to match.WERENT best pleased but !!!!!
