    It told me that I printed it the maximum number of times …. 5 or 6.

  2. Nicole

    I also went on my iPhone, and it looks like if you go to Toys R Us website on there, you can activate a mobile coupon πŸ™‚

    • vergin

      how did u do that

      • QL

        Type: toysrus.com in your phone’s browser and the coupon will show up. When you get up to the register click on “Activate this Coupon”. The cashier has instructions on how to scan the code from your phone. They can manually enter it if there are scanning errors. HTH

        • Vergin

          when I click on the coupon, it opts only for printing.

          Thanks for the reply.

          • Daniela

            Thank you, it works for me!

    • Janie

      That was easy! Thank you for putting this! I love using coupons from my iPhone, rather than using papers& ink.

  3. Kim

    Anyone know if the barcodes are specific to your e-mail account or is it one barcode for everyone? I printed the toys r us and babies r us e-mail and noticed that they have the same barcode. Will I be able to use both?

    • Rei

      If it’s the same barcode, no. You’ll need to print from 2 different computers.

    • Bianca

      I had the same question. Does yours end in 60895?

      • Jennifer Ragan Knutson

        Mine ends in 0494.

        • Kim

          mine ends in 60071

    • Lisa

      mine ends in 60605

    • missiontosave

      I was able to print from a few places with 3 different codes. But I have a reader now who is saying all hers have the same bar code numbers. So maybe they got “hip” to us all!

  4. Karen

    wondering the same thing Kim!

  5. karen

    The link to print the coupon is not working. It keeps giving me an error message and going back to the previous page. I’ve tried through my email and the TRU page. Anyone else having this problem?

    • Sue

      it comes in a pop up

  6. mysanityandme

    mine ends in 0147

  7. crossfirext17

    I just went to the website and printed a coupon and went to a different computer and it was a different bar code.

    Went to print again from the original computer and it was the same barcode… so looks like it’s one time per computer

  8. Rory

    I have been using different internet programs and it gives me unique barcodes. Also, if you close the browser and reopen, you should get new codes. I have gotten 6!

    • Sharon Fuller

      I tried closing and reopening and got the same code. Maybe if you use a different internet browser, though…

    • katie

      why do you need 6? do you actually think that is ok? this is why store’s have cut down on coupons. in the end the over use is passed on to customers with them raising prices. I personally believe this is unethical. So thank you for contributing to the reason store’s don’t want to do coupons.

      • Bianca

        Please don’t be ugly. For some of us, this is the only way we can afford to buy our kids presents for Christmas and birthdays. The stores have regulated the coupons with the code and they will take as many as they want- whether it be 1 or 5. So let the store handle it.

        • J

          There is a thing called “greed” though. Six is a bit much and you’re well aware of it. While your intentions might seem good to you, not being able to buy CHRISTmas gifts and all, we should be a bit mindful of the true intention behind using so many.

          • Bianca

            My kids made a list of 10 things they want. That’s all I would allow. I will be using these coupons to get the items THEY WANT. Not anything extra. I don’t think that’s greedy. While others may abuse the policy, we are not the ones who should be judging them. I did not print 6 copies of the same coupon.

            • doreen

              Jesus only received 3 gifts. 10 is a bit excessive.

            • Renee

              OMG- that is funny!

          • Alea

            I fully agree wholeheartedly – these coupons are meant to be only printed ONE time to find ways to get more is definitely unethical. If people weren’t so unethical, stores would do more promotions and more coupons instead of having to raise their prices making everything more expensive for everyone.

          • VP

            you couldn’t have said it any better!!!!

        • cindi

          Yes, the stores have regulated the coupons with the barcode…one per IP address, but obviously some people get around that. When you take the coupons into the store for use the person accepting your coupons at the register has nothing whatsoever to do with corporate coupon promotion or regulation. So whether they take 1 or 5 really has nothing to do with the long term effects coupon abuse has on the price of goods or available future coupons. I agree though that there is no need to be ugly or mean to anyone.

      • Makayla

        I agree with you. Publix in our area have limited us to 4 of each coupon and one of each competitor, so you can’t even do great deals by stacking anymore on staple items that are actually needed. This reminds me of the Pier 1 coupon, saw a family of 6 each get a free item including their 4 year old O_O and not even bother to look around the store for anything they needed. But hey to each their own as long as they don’t come preaching to my door about their “beliefs”.

      • Susan

        Agree. There are a limited amount of prints, so for EACH person that is printing 5 or 6 coupons, there are 4 or 5 people that won’t get any at all.

        • hollybethmann

          It’s easy to go overboard and want to print all that you can – I think that is normal and we’re all human. But at the same time, we say that for some of us its the only way to buy our kids Christmas presents. I can’t even imagine what you can buy there for $5 for a present. Also, our kids are spoiled rotten in our day and age – and we’re the ones doing it to them (myself included). I think that’s why people are so unhappy and never content. We’re raising them that way. Last thing in my rant – Thrift stores have amazing toys and stuff you can buy for super cheap. My son got a nerf gun (or several over the year) for 50cents a piece. There are ways to buy presents super cheap too.

          • Makayla

            Awesome! My husband still gets his dockers for work from Goodwill, as he refuses to buy “uniforms” that the company requires. Also he bought me a Coach bag for a whooping $20 πŸ˜€ I was super excited with my present and the fact that all my friends love it thinking I pay $$$ for it.

          • Tonya

            i agree that many kids are very spoiled these days. I think my generation was spoiled as children too. It’s absolutely understandable that parents want to give the world to their kids, but when you give them “everything” you are depriving them of many more important things in life. Material things shouldnt equate real happiness. In my opinion, give them what they need and some of what they want. Teach them to work hard for what they want, to give to others and to be grateful for what they already have.

            • hollybethmann

              Tonya – I LOVE your last couple of sentences so much. That it something I will remember – “Give them what they need and some of what they want…” and I totally agree about giving to others and being grateful. Also we should be a better example to the kids.

              This whole situation is reminding me of Christmas time when Toys R us had a big sale – with Operation selling for only a dollar or something like that. I believe it was Christmas time….I got there exactly at the time when the sale started or store opened and 2 to 5 women wiped out the entire stock – getting at least 30 or more games each. I wonder if they were going to resell them – on Amazon or somewhere else. I know if they were commenting on here, they’d all say they were donating them all. But it’s not always like that and I understand we all need to make money.

              But that day, one of the ladies gave me one single game (out of her cart full) and it was really nice and I appreciated it. But truthfully I did want to get the deal (I would have got it for my nieces/nephew), but my son had an operation game that I bought a year or so before (before I began couponing – so it was an expensive one). And then a lady showed up and looked really stressed out and asked me if I knew were all the games were for a dollar. She looked really sad when I said they were gone. So I gave her our game and she was so polite and almost didn’t take it but I told her we have it already. So, sometimes – going overboard with the freebies or cheap deals isn’t so nice. I also don’t like it when I go to Walgreens and find that the one thing I really needed and was on sale is wiped right out within an hour. I’ve also found those items hidden behind things on the same shelf though. I am once again going on a really long tangent here.

              I just can’t agree with your comment more Tonya. You said it in much less words than I did – but it is impt to be grateful and generous. People can be really touched by someone’s generosity. I have an idea – as I printed out two of those coupons. And, I had a tough time waiting an hour as my son wandered through the store with his $5 coupon- only to want some candy πŸ™‚ lol..I am going to Goodwill this week and I will give the 2nd printout I have to someone there! πŸ™‚ I assumed people who were already shopping at Toys R Us had enough or had the Q already – anyone else want to try that? I think it is awesome idea…:))))

          • koko

            Thrift stores are amazing of you go at the right time. You aren’t supporting corporate greed, it’s more environmentally friendly, and you can often find things you wouldn’t normally in stores. I love, love, love Hip2Save, and when I’m not responsibly using the coupons and shopping the deals listed here, I get almost everything else from thrift stores (mainly Goodwill.) If you’ve never tried it, you should πŸ™‚

            • hollybethmann

              I agree koko πŸ™‚ I LOVE our salvation army thrift store. It is the best – with the best prices. I try to make sure I donate a bunch of stuff too – i’ve bought some really unique and interesting things. πŸ™‚

        • Bianca

          If you haven’t noticed, They are printing 5 or 6 OF THE SAME BARCODE. I will bet money that the store will not accept them. I work retail, I know all about coupons.

          • hollybethmann

            i think printing multiples of a Q with the same barcode is actually illegal..i could be wrong..

      • HP

        i can’t agree with you more. My kids want stuff too. I can’t afford it all. But I won’t go printing 6 coupons just to possible get it free… Just saying.

        • hollybethmann

          I agree! πŸ™‚

    • Trish

      If people who use multiple coupons make you angry, please use yours to buy yourself some skittles and taste the rainbow!!! Life goes on……

      • Jaclyn

        LOL! Too funny! πŸ˜‰

      • Haseena

        LOL!! Trish, you just made my day. That was hilarious.

  9. Brandy

    Yeah, I think 1 per computer. It let me print several copies, but they all end in 0851.

  10. Brittany R.

    If anyone doesn’t need theirs and would consider sending it to me I would very much appreciate it!! Thanks! Toasty311b@aol.com
    God bless!

    • Bianca

      You can find it on the Toys R Us website.

  11. appu

    my husband and i printed from different computers and the codes r different too.

  12. Sharon Fuller

    I got the same barcode. Is it the same for everyone? Mine ends in 60578.

    • terri

      no, my barcode is different

  13. jata

    I was able to print from the same computer and printer 5 times before I got the message of hitting max print for offer.

    • mary

      If toys r us or babies r us intended for everyone to get $25 off, they would have advertised that, not $5 off. It doesn’t matter if you can only use $5 per item. I am tired of everyone trying to “get one over” on store’s and make sure they “get their’s”. Why not be happy that you are getting $5 off?

      • Bianca

        I have printed two coupons and may use the two digital as well. I’m not trying to “get one over,” I’m trying to survive on less than $30,000 a year with 4 kids to buy for. Please don’t be judgemental. This is not the place for it. The stores have learned from experience to limit these deals. Toys R Us knew what they were doing when they sent this coupon out.

        • rowan

          When a company makes a coupon print once per computer with a UNIQUE barcode they ARE trying to regulate it. It’s essentially one per person, or one per computer. Using different computers and programs to create different barcodes is tricking the system even though you’re not intending to be sneaky or dishonest.

        • adri

          I know its hard to get along in life but take responsibility for your own action. Dont blame the store, lol. If I could I would print 2 or 3 but can only print one. And if I did print 3 I would say its cause I wanted to, needed to not cause the store made me do it

          • Alea

            I agree with you Adri – don’t blame the store! Times are tough for everyone, stores included which is why they do these promotions to get people in their doors to hopefully buy something more than just $5 worth of free stuff. Toys R Us is barely surviving right now – Babies R Us is what’s keeping them going right now.

            • adri

              I am thinking I am going to buy my baby a bathtub from there. Thats what I still need and batteries for those sings , bounces and things

  14. Bianca

    I printed one coupon from chrome and one from explorer and they had different bar codes. I’m going to guess that those of you who printed 5 of the same bar code are not going to be able to use all 5.

    • Jenny

      I also printed one from IE and one from CHrome. I printed 2 so each of my kids has one to use. Thank you Collin and thank you Bianca for this tip!

  15. Ann

    Personally, I think you can only use the coupon if it has a unique code since it says “one time single use only”.

  16. Danielle

    So if the bar codes are all the same you can only use 1 right? I’m confused because it let me print 5 of them and then said I hit the maximum amount of prints lol ????

  17. Brandy

    Agree – just because you were able to print several copies, it appears if they have the same bar code, you will only be able to use one.

  18. Makayla

    Just an FYI. These coupons are one per person and one per use and one per computer. You are able to also get a mobile coupon from your iphone or ipad. Once the coupon scans once, it will not work. The register will read, already been used and they will not do an override.

    • J

      Hope this is true! I’d really like to be able to use mine before TRU decides to change their mind on it.

  19. Anna dm

    Bummed that I can’t use it on diapers, baby food, etc. Are the toddler snacks considered baby food? Like the veggie straws.

    • Lisa

      It says excludeds baby food. I was actually thinking the same thing? I was going to use it on my daughters favorite Snikkity Snacks. I had never heard of them before Hip2Save, but with coupons they are the best valued healthy snacks I’ve found that she thoroughly enjoys πŸ™‚

      • Annadm

        I prefer the veggie straws and the apple straws dipped in hot apples and cinnamon are amazing. I use my grandmas recipe. The also have clearance snacks all the time. Perfect way to get cheap organic foods.

    • Teri

      I tried to use my coupon to get some Sammy Jammies (it’s a type of toddler snacks, similar to nutrigrain bars). And the cash register rejected it and only took off $3.75 off my sippy cups and charged me full price for the sammy jammies. Good thing I caught it when she was ringing it up so I politely asked her to hold off and I went back to pick something else to buy so I can get the full $5 off.

  20. Elizabeth

    If you have a smart phone and go to toysrus.com it gives you a mobile version..no printing, no ink. Save extra pennies!!

    • Vivienne

      Thanks for the tip!

  21. Kim

    Help! How do I activate the mobile coupon? I went to the website on my phone and clicked on the save $5 and it just offered me the print option on my phone. Which of course isnt’ going to work?!!! How do you get the mobile option to pop up? I have an android phone.

    • rachel

      you have to go on your phone to the toyrus website. click on the coupon and it will say activate this coupon.

  22. Marissa

    mine ends with 60869! THANKS COLLIN!

  23. Marlena

    There is also the same coupon in Shopkick app . I do not know if it has the same barcode or not . Worth trying.

    • Lisa

      Awesome! Thanks!

  24. Jennifer

    I was able to get 2 – 1 for each of my boys. Thanks!

  25. Darcie

    I received a text message to the link from Babiesrus to the mobile coupon version.

  26. mary

    Toyrus sent me the coupon via text, I am subscribed to their text deals

  27. Julian

    This is not the place for negativity. Everyone here has something in common and that is saving money. Let’s all get along. Someone that prints out 6 coupons from a website, isn’t going to stop you from living your daily life. I hope everyone has a great day!

      thanks Julian! good point

      Very well said Julian! πŸ™‚ Hope you have a great day, too!!! πŸ™‚

    Yay, it worked on clearance got the doggy blue slippers, the same ones that burned out in our apartment, life is getting back to normal πŸ™‚ thank you for heads up on this coupon ! Love Your site! πŸ™‚

  30. Keeley Smiley

    I work at Toys R Us and I can already let everyone know that if it’s the same barcode it won’t work. There was a lot of problems with the chuggington coupon because of this. We just can’t accept them, the register won’t let us. We stapled all the chuggington coupons together with the same barcode just to show customers when we had to explain it. People were not happy about it but really there’s nothing we can do.

    • Yoko

      Thanks for the reminder that the coupon is indeed one-time only use and we can not print multiple of same bar-coded-coupon to use multiple times.

    • Emilytwinmom

      I remember seeing a woman freaking out on a cashier over the chuggington coupon, and it made me sad as a couponer. That poor cashier didn’t know what to say! To me, this is part of the spelling of “we no longer accept coupons” πŸ™

  31. Jodi

    Do you think Walmart will accept this coupon? The nearest ToysRUs is quite a drive for us.

    • Michelle735

      My Wal-Mart will only take Manufacturer Coupons not other store coupons.

  32. jenn

    I went this morning with my ONE coupon and shopped clearance. I got 4 Mario folders and one fashion dress up dog thing for $0.98 which just happened to be the price of one of the folders!

  33. Natasha C

    I got a Little Einsteins DVD for my kiddo πŸ™‚ It was only 4.99 and it had Disney reward points πŸ™‚

    Happy Shopping Everyone.

  34. Sarah

    Crayola crayons are still on sale 4 for $1. Picked up 20 for free after coupon. Favors and supplies for toddler “art” birthday party and will use the rest for donations. Thanks!

    • Annadm

      Good idea! There are a bunch of local schools that can use them.

  35. Tarri

    I printed from Firefox and Chrome and got the same number on the q.

  36. ashley

    I printed one from two computers (different ips and barcodes) and used one at BRU. My husband tried to use the other at TRU and it wouldn’t work. πŸ™

  37. betsy

    can’t print this coupon! won’t come up???

  38. Laura

    I’m pregnant and I got two NUK pacifiers for $1.00! Pretty happy about that πŸ™‚

  39. Danielle

    I just want to say- there’s a blog I follow that the people who run it are so rude and they always delete my comments and everyone who comments after me is really mean and I am so glad that hip2save isn’t one of those blogs.!! I commented about a charity on there one time and they deleted it. They also copy other blogs and you can tell them about a deal, and they take the cedit for it! They are the rudest people. I am really proud that hip2save is not like that. And that’s why I absolutely LOVE Hip2save! I just want to say thank you to Collin and all the others on here for being so polite and helpful! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    • Yoko

      Welcome to Hip2Save, Danielle! Collin shows us how to get good deals and people are very nice and helpful here. I hope you enjoy Hip2Save as much as I do! πŸ™‚

  40. Kim

    It clearly states 1 time single use, I bet it’ll beep if you try to use it twice.

  41. Micki

    Awesome! I can’t wait to hear what people are getting with the coupon.

  42. Stephanie

    My kids were super excited about the Crayola sidewalk chalk and wooden tic tac toe game. I was happy about only spending 1.06.

  43. Sherita

    I just used mine and initially printed off two so that a friend could use one and we were not allowed since I used a coupon before her…. they are for sure only letting you use one per computer!!!

  44. Alisha

    I found some Xia Xia Crabs on clearance for $4.98 and you got 4 crab shells for FREE, they also had Xia Xia playsets on clearance for $4.98 and you got 2 more FREE so I paid $5.41 for 3 playsets, a crab and 4 crab shells! The only playsets my store had were the same so I’m going to donate the other 2! My daughter is going to love this for her birthday!!

  45. Trish

    I printed a second coupon after clearing my history trail and they had different barcodes. I gave my second coupon to the lady that checked out behind me….it made her day!!

  46. Ann

    Wow reading all of you ladies comments made me feel bad for not using it to day. If anyone would like an extra 5 dollar coupon, I have it PDF so I can attach in a email. Send me a request using ecoupon11@hotmail.com and I’ll try to email it to one of you ladies.

    • Ann

      Sent it to Stephanie.

  47. Kimberly B.

    I used one coupon and got one regular pack of Crayola dry erase crayons and a pack of bright dry erase crayons they were buy one get one 50% off 3.99, and a magic float maker marked down to .60 from 5.99. and a Razor X skateboard on clearance for 3.00 marked down from 29.99! So after tax all of that cost me 5.02 super excited because I had just installed a big dry erase board for my girls to draw on and have been looking for a good deal on the crayons I got that and so much more!

    • Emilytwinmom

      The crayons are awesome! If you have a hard time getting them off the dry erase board try lysol. I have twins who use their dry erase boards daily and sometimes the crayons are hard to get off completely. Just thought I would share the trick πŸ™‚

  48. Ashley57

    My husband got some candy and I got some wrapping paper and gum. Also, you do not have to spend $5. If you spend, $4.50, you will get everything free.

  49. kelsey

    I have an extra 5.00 coupon if anyone wants it email me at ecouponchick101@yahoo.com. I can sent it to you as a PDF!

    • kelsey

      Gone:)

      • Melissa Spence

        Thanks again, Kelsey!

  50. Jaclyn

    Does anyone happen to know if you can use more than 1 of the $5 coupons (printable + mobile) in 1 transaction to get something over $10+ OR do I need to do seperate transactions?

    • kelsey

      I was wondering to!

    • Shannon

      The coupon states Not Valid With Any Other “R” US Total Transaction Offer or on prior purchase.

    • Laura

      I don’t think you can use 2 of the $5 offs together but you can use it with another BabiesRUs coupon. I combined it with a $10 off $35 clothing purchase and my cashier said it could be used with some of the other coupons in my mailer and with the 20% one that they always hand out if you have one.

  51. Kenci G

    FOr everyone getting the Crayola products Target has string Cheese 2 for $7 you get a 2 $3 off crayola coupons and a Free giant Crayola Coloring book. This may go good paired with the 5 off coupon πŸ™‚

  52. mary

    I got my baby a banana boat sunscreen 10 oz which was on sale for $6.49, so just $1.49 after coupon and hubby got baby a book which normally cost $13 for $5. We were happy overall

  53. ann.dee18@yahoo.com

    I feel so fortunate today. I have 3 kids and my husband makes $150k a year but we have a lot of bills and expenses so this isn’t as much as it seems. It was such a blessing today. I printed out 8 coupons(different computers) and was able to take my kids shopping today. they were all so happy to get their princess barbie dolls.

    • Laura

      You have 8 computers???

      • ann.dee18@yahoo.com

        yes. we have one laptop for each of us and then 2 iPads. Things are very tough this year so this is such a blessing!

        • JT

          With 2 ipads and 6 computers – things are not tough Ann. Give me a break. By you stating to the world what your husband’s income is – it is like a punch in the face to others. I am trying really hard to restrain myself but I am enraged when reading your posts. Maybe you’re a spammer – just trying to wind people up (in that case, it’s working). Otherwise, you need to realize that the fact you have 6 computers and 2 ipads means you are not suffering from financial problems and in need of printing out $40 dollars worth of coupons. Like someone else commented, if the store wanted you to print out a $40 off coupon – they would have made it $40 off. They made it for $5 off for a reason – and stated one per person. I don’t think it’s a crime to print off two. But 8? And then to say how tough it is with $150K – it really is annoying to be honest. I am struggling with money – for real – and paying the rent is top priority. The broker I get, the more likely I am to start selling stuff off. And, my son’s computer would be the first thing to go. People need to stop whining and complaining about how tough it is – when you have so much more than others in the world. The poorest people I ever met were illegal immigrants in Thailand from Burma – they had nothing – but they were 500 times happier than anyone I”ve known in the states. It’s obvious why…

            And to clarify one thing – my son’s computer is actually my own – I just allow him to use it. I won’t even “give” it to him for him to have it until he earns it – which is going to take a long while. I’ve also spoiled him too much …and I want him to learn how to work hard for what he has.

            I am sorry i upset you, JT. But, things are really tough for us. We have student loans that we took out when we went to college(hence the good job my husband has) but, just because we make a lot does not mean we don’t struggle. I coupon all of the time and buy most things on steep sale. Just because we have computers and iPads does not mean we don’t have it tough. We never go hungry and we have a nice home but that does not mean we are going to spend money like crazy. I believe that everyone should be careful with their money. You mentioned selling stuff to make money. Well, I do the same thing. I sell on ebay all of the tme. All of my kids’ clothing comes from gymboree but I sell the stuff that no longer fits them and then use the money to buy them new clothes with that money. Just try to remember that just because someone makes a lot doesn’t mean that they can spend it freely. We are very careful how we spend. We could have bought a new car this year but instead opted for a 2011 SUV to save some dough…times are tough for all of us.

              You must be joking to prove a point – about how blind we are as a society about what we have and what we think we “need.” I think you’ve proven it very well. We all make choices. If you want to see what real poverty is – sell some of those iPads and a computer or two and take a trip overseas – it will make you appreciate every breath you take. Life isn’t about all this crap we collect. You’ve made me realize how much I don’t want the coupon and how much more important it is to give it to someone else – who has less – just to make their day. The thing about your 2011 SUV as a sacrifice is so ridiculous. And I am not judging you – I just think you must be totally joking here. I had a very high paying job before the economy crashed and had a lot of money. But things changed – I ended up getting a 2001 Ford Taurus from a govt auction in my state – it now has over 204,000 miles and the AC just stopped working when the weather in my state hit the 100s and stayed that way for weeks. I had to help relatives move – and drive in a car that was 115. I tried to laugh about it with my kid and just ride it out. I still don’t think it’s that bad – not bad enough to fix as of now. Thanks for making me think. My favorite quote: “I cried because I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet.”

              I am sorry to hear of your situation JT. I am just trying to say that no one should judge another’s situation unless we know it completely. Why is it wrong for me and my family to use 8 coupons if we have access to them? Does this coupon state that it must be used by the poor? No. Are coupons in general only for low income families? No. I have every right to use these coupons. I am not doing anything wrong. What I am trying to get across is that anyone can be struggling, no matter what income bracket. I could use these coupons just as much as the next guy and my point in the very first post I made is that I feel so blessed to have come across these coupons. My kids can now have some extra gifts at Christmas time.

              Awww sounds tough! but get over it! you don’t know how blessed you are comparing to other people. You could have bought a new car this year but instead opted for a 2011 SUV to save some dough? Really? you think that really is a big sacrifice??!!! you are blessed to even have a 2011 vehicle. There are a lot of things you could cut down in life if you are having really have tough time. For example, kids don’t need to wear gymboree clothes !!!! It’s all about making choices.

            • ann.dee18@yahoo.com

              I don’t understand why everyone is judging me without knowing me. And, my kids only wear gymboree clothing because they are good quality, last through my 3 kids and I can resell them on ebay for more than I originally bought them for. So, why wouldn’t i buy them all gymboree vs walmart? Also, we are very cautious with money. For example, I am about to go grocery shopping. We only eat organic so I am on the computer printing coupons for some of the organic products that we purchase. Am I wrong to do this? Also, Nat, you stated that I could cut down in places…well, that is what I am doing when I use those toys r us coupons…right?

          Sounds tough. Sorry, but my husband has been unemployed for 16 months, and I work part-time with autistic children. Tough year is trying to get by on $66k a year, with a mortgage. We are trying to sell things that are in our garage to buy food.

          • Holly

            Susan – thank you for commenting. I agree with you 1 million percent. And, I too am struggling after dealing with constant health problems and being a single parent and disabled vet also. I am currently really struggling with things and also starting to sell things out of my home and even becoming a bit of a picker – to buy and resell. I hope things get better for us πŸ™‚ and I understand what you are dealing with. The couponing helps. I heard a saying once…”The woman was so poor, all she had was money”

            • Susan

              Holly, my heart goes out to you. Sending prayers and blessings to you and hope you find relief in the struggle. I’m sure you are doing the best you can for your children.

            • HollyBeth

              Thank you so much Susan. You too. πŸ™‚ You are very sweet. Things will get better. My grandma’s favorite..Romans 8:28..and it will all work out in the end!

          • ann.dee18@yahoo.com

            Susan, that sounds tough. I hope things look up very soon for you and yours.

            • Susan

              Thank you for the kind words. I do secret shopping a lot to earn free gift cards and free dining, and surveys bring in a few extra dollars. When I look at our bills as opposed to our income I’m shocked we’ve lasted this long, but God is gracious.

            • ann.dee18@yahoo.com

              He sure is, Susan! I have been doing surveys too…love them!

          • Emily

            Our dream is to make $66,000 a year. I could do a lot with that. We are a family of five making it on about $53,000 a year, with a mortgage.

            • My socks have more holes in them than YOURS do, so there!

              Everyone should also consider that 150K salary really is NOT that much in a high cost of living area, where private schools are the only option unless you want your kids to have a crappy education because the classrooms are overcrowded (and sometimes dangerous to boot), commuting is a way of life because all the high paying jobs are in the city and gas is so expensive, healthcare premiums are ridiculous, you have student loans to pay off, maybe you couldn’t get pregnant and needed in vitro to have a family or had to adopt and pay an adoption lawyers sky high fees in order to be able to have children, etc. How do you know the IPads weren’t a gift or something she won from a contest? Please stop being so judgemental. This is not the place for a “my life is worse than yours” competition on a coupon blogging site. Times are tough for EVERYONE.

    • Andrea

      People like you ruined my chance at even getting the coupon.

      Thank you for contacting Toys ‘R” Us regarding the $5 coupon. We apologize for any inconvenience that this has caused. At this time the Coupon has been removed from our website and all social networks due to multiple coupons being printed with the same code. The coupon offer is β€œone per Guest”, as stated on the coupon. We will continue to honor any valid coupons through Thursday, 8/16. We do not have away to re send the email or have a way to print any new coupons. Again, we do apologize for any inconvenience that this has caused.

      • Cheryl S.

        I guess I will be getting that response too. I got the email, but when I click “get coupon” it just goes to the website. πŸ™

    Anyone try using the crayola coupons at toy ‘r us with the crayola deal? I tried on Saturday with the crayola B1G1 and it wouldn’t accept the coupons that I got from the Kraft string cheese. They said they couldn’t override the coupon and push it through because it came up invalid number or something. The manager tried telling me it wasn’t taking it because the items were on sale and part of the B1G1, so I didn’t get as good of a deal on the items as I was expecting – may return them if I find them cheaper elsewhere.

  55. amy

    Has anyone tried using their coupons yet and did it work to use more than one? I also received 2 different emails, one from babies r us and one from toys r us, so I think I should be able to use both – I’m not going to print anymore, I just wanted to give one to each of my kids to buy something…..just wondering.

    • kara

      Amy I also got 2 emails and both had the same code as the internet one I printed. πŸ™

      • guest

        If it’s the same code then you can only use it once

  56. brenda

    i am not sure if this is allowed but i only have one computer and love this coupon so i purchased some off of ebay, i printed them and myself, hubby and four children went off to toys r us and they let us use two each, if you want the seller i purchased from the item number is 390454035018 if you do a search on ebay for that number you will find them and it was legit they worked great

    • kelsey

      I have some extra toys r us coupons! People at work printed some for me (all with different barcodes) but I only let my daughter use 2 because its not her birthday or christmas so she does not need a bunch of new toys:) Just email me at kmegerth@yahoo.com with how many you want and ill email the PDF to you!

      • Susan

        Great thinking. We don’t need them here. After an hour in TRU, we found there isn’t much you can get with $5. Fortunately, the cashier let us combine our $5 coupon and the $3 birthday coupon. And, this after coming from JCPenney for the free child’s haircut.

        • couponchick

          I found this ad on craigslist for these coupons! Only 6 dollars and she has 5 sets of 10 toys r us coupons! I bought a set and they all worked! She allowed me to use paypal because I dont live near her!! Amazing deal http://billings.craigslist.org/mad/3204220806.html

      • kelsey

        GONE! they are all gone now:( sorry
        Hope everyone who got one scored some amazing deals on toys!

  57. Deb

    Good grief, Ann-really sorry about the unkind & judgemental comments above. I’m late jumping in here.
    I certainly hope none of the rude remarks were originating from fellow believers. Gives us a bad name & even poorer witness πŸ™
    I would never trade my set of family issues(and we ALL have our share) for someone elses. Yes, people are hurting-that’s a given. But folks with a healthy income can get in difficult situations just as easy as those making minimum wage. None of my business to judge…

    Here’s a positive, productive course we all can do-
    TAKE IT TO THE VOTING BOOTHS IN NOV AND V-O-T-E!

    • ann.dee18@yahoo.com

      thanks, Deb. I too, like yourself hope that these comments were not made my fellow believers. So sad to think that they could have. πŸ™ My point was that even though someone may have a healthy income, doesn’t mean they don’t have a lot of bills to pay. Mortgages, student loans, insurances, doctors bills, school tuition for children, etc.

      • lynnalee

        I’m not even sure why you have to explain yourself ann.dee18@yahoo.com … You came out here to ‘share’ your coupon experience with everyone only to get judged upon….. for nothing.

        Not to be a jerk to anyone else, but I have friends, co workers, and family that have I-phones who were able to give me codes because they can’t make it to Toys’r’us. I did 4 seperate transactions for 4 different people…ran an errand for them… doing someone a favor. I hope no one in line was judging ME for using 4 coupons (ps i had 2 kids and my husband with me) because technically they were not all for me.

        Anyhow, a $5 dollar coupon isn’t going to ruin it for anyone. i guess my situation was different… i didn’t print multiple coupons with the same codes because that wasn’t going to work… Toys’r’us allowed each phone to generate a code – how is that unfair? – its only fair to use those generated coupons. If the max limit of coupon links was reach, they should have taken the coupon away… I don’t think that the main reason they took it off was because of the duplicate barcodes because those barcodes would NOT have worked anyways.

    Are you guys still able to print the $5 Qs?

    • Jamie

      no I wasn’t. boo! the text didn’t work either. I have never seen so much bashing on this blog before. wow. I think it’s fair to say we are all struggling in different ways. I myself am a single mom barely making $34k a year, with a mortage with a job I’ve been at for almost 11 years with NO health insurance and the state of IL thinks I make too much money to get insurance thru them! I coupon bc a friend taught me how easy it is and I am SO grateful for her. I will tell you what tho…if I had 8 computers and had that many q’s I’d pick something up and save it for Toys For Tots. That’s just me πŸ™‚ now breathe ladies…that got a little intense just reading it, I can only imagine how you feel typing it πŸ™‚

    My kids got a my little pony and small lego set today! We’re moving soon so it was nice to let them get a treat since they’ve been a little lost in the shuffle and time to swim with mom and dad too! Its been a really good day!

  60. Lara

    Unfortunately I wasn’t able to print the coupon earlier this week, but stopped at Toys R Us last night to pick up something. Ended up finding that there were a bunch of items on clearance and got some Kung Zhu stuff for my kids…the Special Force Hamsters were 3.98 (reg. 9.99) and the sets were marked down to .99 (reg 15.00)! I ended up with $65 worth of stuff for about $12! If you live nearby a store you might want to see what you can find!
