8% IS THE NEW 5%?: I received this notification from Toys R Us in my inbox a few days ago:
This is apparently the new standard, not just a one-off promotion. $10 per $125 spent works out to 8%, which is pretty good, and this applies to Babies R Us as well. How good is it?
I went by the nearest Toys R Us to check out their gift card suppy. This is the extent of it:
So unless you do all your spending at Applebee’s, Burger King, and Barnes & Noble, there is no “8% Everywhere” scheme in play here as far as I know. That said, I have only checked this one Toys R Us and I haven’t checked any Babies R Us stores yet, so who knows.
