It’s back, and just as cuddly

I don’t know if y’all remember this, but last year Amazon did a bonus buy thing where if you spent a certain amount of money on toys, you got a free limited edition Gund teddy bear. I always figure out how to do that deal when they offer it, because the bear is really nice—soft and adorable and a pretty hefty size. It makes a great Toys For Tots donation if your kids have enough stuffed animals already.

Anyway, the deal is back; spend $75+ on the 150 or so qualifying toy items, and this year’s bear is yours for free. Plenty of the qualifying items are already on sale, too, so if you have a bunch of shopping to do, this would be a great way to get started.

And if you get the bear and decide to keep it for yourself, I certainly won’t judge you.


  1. So, I am debating whether to buy a Lego set now or wait. And I am working myself up into a tizzy. Do I buy it now? Do I buy through Amazon? Will there be better deals later on? Who will have the best deals on Lego sets?

    Can you offer your very wise opinion?

  2. Here’s my general philosophy on things like Lego at holiday-time: There will be certain Black Friday discounts and it’s likely a few sets will show up in that early-to-mid-December toy clearance Amazon will do. If you don’t care which set you end up with, you can probably wait. If your child wants a specific set, it may not be worth the gamble. Discounts, yes. Discounts on everything, no… plus, the popular stuff will sell out or be hard to find.

    I’m not sure that was helpful, but there you go.

  3. @Erika: If you don’t care if it’s Lego brand or not, stalk Woot and also search Amazon for Best Lock off-brand. Three times (or more) legos at a fraction of the cost! The girls are getting several sets this year. For the amount of money I paid, even if they aren’t as good, I won’t be out too much.

  4. thanks to both of you!
