Goooood morning! Is it January yet? No? I guess I’ll have to keep shopping, then.

Today it’s the Saturday Sale, with up to 50% off select styles. Combine the deals with a code for the sweetest deal: Use HOLIDAY08 for 15% off any order, or HOLIDAY50 for $50 off $200+.

There’s free shipping on thousands of great gifts at Target right now, and still plenty of time to ship before the holidays.

Today’s Gold Box Deal at Amazon is a Sonicare Elite toothbrush for $79.99 (43% off). Also, spend $139+ on qualifying products and receive $40 off a future Amazon purchase (see the site for details).

Toy prices continue to go up and down and all around at Amazon, too—if you were on the fence about the Playskool Ball-Tivity Center, it’s down to just $6.99. (If you bought it at a higher price, well, I guess now is when we all complain about the lack of price adjustments….) Other deals I spotted this morning:
LEGO Police Command Center for $27.89 (38% off)
Melissa and Doug Easel is down to $25.99 (57% off)
Melissa and Doug Solid Wood Dollhouse is down to $47.99 (70% off!!)
Nerf Dart Tag Hyperfire for $19.99 (half off)
Fisher Price Smart Cycle for $59.99 (45% off)
Tonka Scoot N Scoop Ride On for $9.99 (67% off)
MegaBloks King Arthur Battle Action Castle for $23.99 (70% off)
LeapFrog Explorer Smart Globe for $49.99 (50% off) (Santa brought this last year—it’s a very cool toy)
Cosmic Catch is down to $7.99 (68% off)

Wooo. I feel like I need to take a break after combing Amazon. Back in a bit with some more….

Okay, here’s a few more things to check out (that aren’t toys): Today’s St. Nick’s Pick at Lands’ End is extreme squall jackets for 35% off. Free shipping on anything you buy there through that link, too.

Overstock is liquidating select electronics this weekend; as always, check the prices (some are… ummm… more liquidatey than others) (yes, that’s the technical term), but there are some deals to be had.


  1. Okay, I’ve now moved from the “one more really neat thing for Kid X” to “I’ll put that in the closet and have a good start shopping for his birthday”!

    Somebody please stop me before I have his next 6 Christmases and birthdays bought for. 🙂 On this one, though, I blame DH. I had the Amazon window open with the LEGO Police Command Center showing when he walked by. “That’s a great price! Oh, it comes with all those things?! Get it!” 🙂

  2. I almost bought that dollhouse when you listed it before but now I”m soooo happy I am a procrastinator!

  3. [insert swear words here] I just bought a sonicare without the $40 off.

  4. Darn! The coupon has tons of exclusions! Including Keen and Crocs (I’ve had my eye on a pair of Keen sandals since the KEEN contest at the end of November.) Hmmmph. Might have to get a pair anyway…

  5. must resist shoes….
