Mattel Pixar Diecast CARS: The Toys R Us (TRU) Holiday & N20 Cola Shopping Plan

The Buy 5, Get N20 Cola for $5 is up & running.


Buy 5 single CARS at Toys R Us (in-store and only singles count) – you don’t have to buy them all in one trip or one store. (um, yea, good luck finding 5 in one store you want). SAVE YOUR RECEIPTS!

Once you have 5 or a multitude of 5, then you’re ready for …


Go to the Mattel redemption website. Even if you intend to mail in a check, if you do it all online, at least you have a transaction number. Follow the page along to enter your address info – at the next to last page, you can choose to pay by credit card or mail a check. It doesn’t really matter as you have to mail in the cardbacks and receipt anyway but you can choose. Note the reference number. You can either print that out as your address label or simply write the number on your envelope.

You should get an email back that they acknowledge this info and they are waiting for your cardbacks, UPC’s and payment (if by check).


Open up the CARS. You will need all your saved receipts and the UPC. But here is where it gets tricky … because on the singles blister packs, the UPC is in different places depending on which card you are buying:

DESERT BACKS/SUPERCHARGED/WORLD OF CARS: The UPC is underneath the CAR on the cardboard “road.” So if you are buying a desert back/Supercharged or World of Cars CARD, you will need to mail in BOTH the cardback AND the UPC on the “road” underneath.

WORLD OF CARS: RACE O RAMA: If you are buying one of the new card design, you only need to mail in the cardback since the UPC has now been moved to the back.


Mail your cardbacks and or cardbacks AND bottom UPC (if necessary) along with payment (if paying by check) to …

Disney/Pixar CARS N20 Cola Car Offer
P.O. Box 1229
East Aurora, NY 14052

You will get an email when it ships.


What CARS qualify?

Essentially every “singles” CAR you can find and buy at TRU between now and December 31, 2008. There is a scan of the qualifying UPC’s listed below from the back of the mini sheet in the stores but it is essentially every single CAR ever released that you might possibly find on a TRU shelf bewtween now & December 31, 2008.

BUT this being TRU, you have to 100% vigilant!

For some oddball reason, TRU will occasionally sticker over the Mattel UPC and place their own – these UPC’s do NOT match up with the ones on the approved list – DO NOT BUY! RETURN those CARS. Why does TRU do that? No clue.

Some people report that lazy TRU cashiers might run one UPC and then try and just list the other CARS you’re buying (presuming you’re buying different CARS) as ‘quantity’ 4 or whatever … this makes your receipt INVALID for the promotions and in fact, disallows your returns at TRU anyway since the UPC doesn’t match. If they attempt this, stop them and politely point out you are buying these for a promotions and they must be rung up separately. Again, accepting this only invalidates your receipt for the promotions so either ask them to ring it up again or walk away. Of course, if you’re really buying 4 of one CAR, then you are obviously okay.

Toys R Us online purchases?

Doesn’t appear to qualify but they sell so few singles CARS online anyway plus with shipping – you are better off just buying them in a store.

Website with other info on the promotion is HERE.

“DisneyCarsFanatic” was kind enough to scan in the form which should be in stores today (of course, it was not at the store I went to).

This list essentially matches the previous website listing with the addition of about 16 UPC’s at the bottom last column – the new Race O Rama releases from CASE A, CASE B and maybe even CASE C …

You’ll also notice some of the Kmart CARS on this approved list even though – good luck finding them at TRU. It does not mean TRU will be getting them, it is only listed in that for some reason, the CARS Collector Day Event had fallen through at Kmart and maybe they had to move the promotions so you’ll find a lot of CARS on the list that do not exist or will not be out by 12/31/2008 but they want it covered just in case. It’s better to have something on he list not actually available at TRU than to have you buy something that got shipped early and not count.

Additional Toys R Us Holiday Shopping Tips

Sign up for the TRU Loyalty Card – Buy $150 worth of stuff before the end of the year, get a $5 gift card … yea, it’s not much but it is something 🙂

There is also a coupon in the Sunday version of the Toy Wish Book worth $10 if you buy $75 dollars worth of stuff at once between now & pre-Thanksgiving (or good for about 4 weeks). (Note, the Toy Wish book in stores do NOT have this coupon).

And of course, we & some of our readers have ideas and programs for toy donation so even if you have loose “extra” CARS, here are some ideas to consider & a link to Toys For Tots.
