Toys R Us launched a "Friends and Family" promotion Thursday that discounts toys, games and other items by 20 percent. It just so happens that it also works on Playstation 4 and Xbox One game and accessory pre-orders as well.
The "Friends and Family" promotion is available both in-store at Toys R Us with these printable coupons as well as online by using the coupon code "FRIENDS20" at checkout. It can be used on almost any product sold by the retailer but for the purposes of this article it will be limited to video games.
The big attraction with the coupon is that it can be used to pre-order any of 20 Xbox One games or PS4 games that will arrive when those console's launch in November or later in 2014 for an effective price of $48. Similarly, PS4 accessories (currently just the DualShock4 controller) and Xbox One accessories can be had for the same 20 percent discount.
Naturally, the coupon works for any current or yet to be launched game or accessory for the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, Wii, Nintendo 3DS and PS Vita as well. The only limitation on the coupon from a gaming perspective is that it cannot be used to discount console purchases.
You'll want to act quick if the coupon interests you though as it expires on Saturday, Sept. 21. Free shipping is available for orders over $79 and sales tax is applicable.
