Two Simultaneous Toy Sales on Amazon

Amazon has had a Toy Sale going on all month. It's hard to find the 70 percent parkdowns they advertise, but I did find a couple good deals, espcially if you haven't redeemd that free Cookie magazine subscription (or $15 rebate).

Lego sets are rarely discounted, which makes Hasbro Transformers Risk Game ($7.50) and you're in boy-toy heaven, and your cost was only $12.50. (Wait, you know what I mean.)

After you make your purchase, you should get an email letting you know how to claim your free magazine subscription or $15 rebate. Remember, you have to spend $25 in toys FROM THE SAME SELLER.

I did a similar deal last night, except I bought something I knew my daughter would want to bring as a gift to birthday parties again and again: her favorite game, Hungry Hungry Hippos. It's $17.99 now, but last night it was under 9 bucks! (Where I found out about that is another story that I will tell you soon.) I bought three of them, and once I redeem my Cookie rebate I will have gotten them for $5 each. That's a good birthday present -- good price, and something I don't feel cheap about giving! (Although you can't get that game for that cheap today, it is apparently available for the Buy 2, Get 1 Free games promo).

So, I was just about to share all this good stuff with y'all, when I noticed's post this morning: There are Monday Markdowns in toys today as well. So shop away!

Thanks for the heads up on the Lego set! My son has been begging for one and I have been hesitant to buy because of the prices.
