Sweet Deals

Do you get a rush when you score an incredible deal?  I must admit I do.  Whether you totally understand or just think I'm plain weird, you are going to love these deals. 

Toys R Us is running some fantastic sales on toys!  Now is the time to stock up for your children, grandchildren, your friends' kids, birthday parties, etc... 

This week at Toys R Us, you'll find these great deals:

VTech Toys Buy One, Get One Free.  PLUS, there was a coupon in the Sunday paper for $5 off a VTech toy priced $19.99 or higher.  I found additional coupons online at, VTech's Site, and  You are permitted one coupon per item.  Some websites have a print limit on the coupons so you can use more than one site if you reach your limit.  Check out my savings:

Toy #1   $24.99 -$5 off coupon= $19.99
Toy #2   $24.99 -$24.99 for BOGO -$5 off coupon = -$5
Toy #3   $20.99 -$5 off coupon= $15.99
Toy #4   $20.99 -$20.99 for BOGO -$5 off coupon = -$5

Total spent on 4 toys: $25.98.  Basically, I bought one and got 3 FREE! 

Fisher Price toys are also Buy One, Get One free but pay attention to the details.  You must Buy One priced $24.99 or higher and then get one free under $24.99.  There are occasionally coupons online for select Fisher Price toys but I haven't seen any recently.

I also bought some fun games utilizing both the store sales and coupons I found online at the same two sites.

Gator Golf Elefun 

Reg. price each $19.99,  Sale Price $11.99 -$3 coupon= $8.99 (More than 50% OFF)
The same deal applies for CuponK, Bop It and Bop It Bounce.

 Hasbro Operation  Connect 4

Reg. price each $16.99-18.99,  Sale Price $8.99 -$3 coupon= $5.99 (More than 60% OFF)

Candyland  Chutes and Ladders

Reg. price each $9.99,  Sale Price $4.99 -$2 coupon= $2.99 (Almost 75% OFF)
The coupon for these games came from

Last week Little Tykes toys were Buy One, Get One free and I also used a $5 off coupon I found online.  Watch the Sunday paper for next weeks ad.  I'm hoping Toys R Us will have more great deals and I'll have my birthday and Christmas shopping done before Summer even starts!  You can also register to receive emails from Toys R Us.  They frequently run one or two day deals where you can score additional savings. 

For example, Melissa and Doug toys are currently Buy 2, Get 1 Free.  A few months ago during this same sale, they also ran the toys at 25% off on a Thursday 1 Day Deal.  So, you can receive both specials at the same time!

There are plenty of other great deals.  Click the link below to view this week's ad.

This topic veers a little bit from my normal business posts but money savvy topics apply to most families.  Families are why we do what we do!  Couldn't resist sharing this!
