    Just got back from the store. Ended up with all the sets and got $65 worth of them free and 2 free movie tickets because of the $25 or more purchase deal.

    These sets are awesome because they come with G1 mini figures. Sale is only through the weekend

    Correction, I orginally thought it was $50 minimum purchase but it's $25 minimum for the movie tickets so you could potentially bring the whole family to the movies if you spend $100, with the sale this is a pretty sweet deal.

    That's horseshit. My TRU told me the KREO sets aren't qualifying for the free movie ticket.

    I bought the big Optimus and Megatron sets and they handed me the free ticket. I would definetly go back there and try for the movie ticket again.

    I wonder if you could have taken a few buddies and broken up your Kre-O buying bonanza into individual $25+ purchases, that way you could score multiple tickets for every $25+ purchase made. Then you could take a bunch of friends to see DOTM or just keep seeing it yourself.

    The kreo sets don't automatically ring up under the promo

    I went to the cust service desk and pointed out that the kreo was merched under the Dotm signs and had the promo tag on it and they gave me one

    Yeah that's what I meant in my initial post, you have to make multiple purchases to get multiple tickets, or you'll only get one.

    I did mine at the customer service desk as well, the ad states all toys and playsets so these should definitely qualify.

    Still a no go for me and I understand why: several ad signs around the store state all "action figures, play sets, or accessories" are eligible. Kre-O is considered "Construction Sets." So, it looks like your guys' store is more flexible and I just didn't get that lucky. Good news? Sentinal Prime is awesome :rock

    I was able to get all of the sets minus the 2 larger Prime sets and also got 1 movie ticket. Would have gotten more had I broken up the purchases though. No biggie, now to find time to open them up :D

    Got my free ticket with the following purchase of jazz kreo, mirage kreo, skyhammer and generations sideswipe. That purchase pushes things above 50 bucks and I had a 10 off coupon in a mailer that I used. So for 45 bucks (taxes) I got two kreo sets, a deluxe and a voyager with free movie ticket.
