Today Only at Toys R Us get a Free Original Skylanders Starter Pack When you Buy the Skylander Giants Starter Pack. I was able to purchase the Wii Giants Starter pack and get the PS3 version of the original Skylander Starter Pack for free. You will need to bring a copy of this coupon to get the deal.
I figure if you are new to the Skylanders universe this would be a great deal. Otherwise you could sell the original pack, making the price for the Giants pack about the same as the best Black Friday price without risking life and limb.
