    I signed up for a TRU rewards card months ago. For the first few weeks, I was getting coupons in my email all the time, but I haven't seen any in a long time. I can't figure out how the heck this program works. Does anyone have any idea?

    It's a percentage of your total select purchases.

    If you spend like $200 you get a $5 coupon or something to that effect.

    It's similar to Best Buys program with points.

    Okay, I thought it was something like that. I'm not a fan of that sort of promotion. $5 is hardly an incentive to spend $150-$200.

    The period before Christmas is probably the best time for the Rewards account. 10% of your purchase is earned up to a total of 50$ in rewards.

    Conversely, the period right after Christmas is the worst time as you can't earn any "R"Us dollars on purchases from December 25, 2011 through January 31, 2012. :(

    Yeah,I don't understand the rhyme or reason as to who gets those e-mail coupons either.I'll go through a stretch where I get them frequently,but now I haven't gotten one in quite a few months.

    I've been a member of TRU rewards for at least a year now and haven't once gotten any kind of points or coupons. It's actually kind of annoying because I got about 10 bucks built up I'd love to have been able to use recently.

    I hate the expiration date they put on them.

    Every time I've gotten cash coupons they expire within 2 weeks.

    Ah, finally got another email with my rewards coupons. Just a $5 and a $4 coupon. Maybe I'll pick up some of those Power Core two packs...

    I use the card there often, but still have no idea how to redeem/check anything on it. Only in this year i've spent 250$ there. Must be something on it.

    I just got coupons and my rewards money but it seems like a long time since the last tiem I got them. You can actually track your spending on the rewards website but it seems like not every purchase qualifies for rewards.
