    Thanks to the coupon on the Happy Meal Bags I scored a $15 Animated Grimlock from TRU.

    That coupon makes Animated Voyagers a great deal. If you have the chance I recommend swinging by McDonalds to get a TF Happy meal w/coupon.

    Has anyone else out there scored a pretty good deal with one of these Happy Meal Coupons?

    I'm stockpiling those coupons at the moment just knowing that I'll be buying a bunch of Animated Voyagers and other 19.99 and up toys from now till this January.

    CH@OS!

    Anyone have a scan or description of the coupon and how it works? The last coupon craze we had, we found out most of us were committing retail fraud by using. So I am a little wary of 'cooooooooupon!'

    There is a coupon w/barcode that is printed on the side of Happy Meal Bags that is good for $5 off any Transformers ANIMATED purchase of 19.99 or more.

    I simply tore it off the bag brought it to TRU (it's good at any retailer I believe.) they scanned it at the register and it took $5 off my Grimlock. It said "manufacturer's coupon" at the register when it was scanned.

    I used the coupon at TRU to buy leader bulkhead. $5 is a nice little chunck of change to save on a $19.99 (and up) toy. I will be seeking more of the McDonalds coupons.

    yeah that was a nice marketing ploy by mc d's and hasbro....mc d's gets business from the happy meal revenue and traffic and hasbro gets more folks buying TF's...WIN and WIN....

    the fraud on that target coupon apparently wasn't everyone using it, it was that someone edited the "toys" part off and posted it, so a bunch of stores were forced to give 5 off any 25 dollar purchase. stopping acceptance of all coupons would be the only way to prevent further fraud.

    http://consumerist.com/tag/fraud/?i=5022685&t=target-discontinues-coupon-due-to-rampant-fraud

    anyone who originally received the coupon in email will be receiving a $5 gift card to make up for it, which i think is totally awesome of target.

    The coupons are good until January 26th 2009. I mean you might as well stock up on them. How many people here can say 'Yeah, I probably will be getting 2 or 3 TF:A toys in the next 6 months'. It's 25% off basically. Plus you get a McDonald's TF toy and also food. :p  Great deal. I haven't eaten McD's in years but have had them twice this week. hah

    Also, I bought Prowl and Blackarachnia and used the coupon at Target. Technically that's only $19.98, but they still scanned it and it worked.

    Hmm... well I don't eat Happy Meals but I think my dad does occasionally lol. I'll let him know to keep the coupon (but my dad's pretty good with that stuff, he always brings me like the SpongeBob Burger King toys so I'm sure he'd give me Transformers =P)

    Well, I went to McD's today for lunch....didnt get a Happy Meal, but I found out that if you ask nice enough, they will just give you a bag or two (I got two) just so you can get the coupon....and I guess I was really nice, cause she also gave me a BB for free too :D

    My wife discovered this today, and my daughter got the McD's Bumblebee toy.

    Now, I just need to find another Grimlock, and I have another coupon saved for Ultra Magnus!

    Heck, if these were for the Universe toys, I'd be living on Happy Meals!
