Your kids have made their Christmas lists, and now you’re wondering how you’re going to get what they want and stay within your limited holiday budget. If you’re looking for a specific toy and want to know where to find it at the best price, deal-searching sites are the way to go. Not only will this save you the legwork of going to all the usual sites to find the best price on a Baby Alive doll, but the best deals may be on lesser-known sites that you wouldn’t have even thought to check! Here are four deal-searching sites to help you find the absolute lowest prices on the toys your kids want this season:
BuyCheapr is an easy site to search and navigate. For example, I searched for a Monster High Doll and got 44 results with images of the different dolls, prices at various websites, and even shipping and handling costs. In this particular example, I found that Target has the best deal on the Spectra doll for only $15 right now, while other retailers are offering the same doll for quite a bit more—around $22!
Dealnews is a great website that searches over 2,000 online retailers for the best deals that are currently being offered online. Through this site I found that Sears is currently offering the Little Tikes Sort 'n Store Toy Chest for $57.99 plus free shipping. That beats the next lowest price by $9 (Diapers.com’s sale price), and it beats Amazon and Toys”R”Us by a whopping $27!
Deals2Buy not only provides you with where to find the lowest price on what you’re looking for, but also notifies you of any coupon codes for the store or specific product. The day I searched, I found the Disney Store was having a sale on some of their dolls—dolls such as Cinderella and Merida from Brave were going for $20 (they sell for $25–34 elsewhere). I love that Deals2Buy also gave me the free shipping coupon code and informed me that the Disney site charges tax (not all online retailers do), so I knew exactly what to expect at checkout.
DealsPlus is an online community where savvy shoppers share deals they find online or in-store. You can find coupon codes, information about upcoming sales and even search by "freebies" (my favorite). Users also vote on whether the posted deal is good or not. Through DealsPlus I found that Amazon is offering the Hot Wheels Car Maker Playset for $33.49. My search shows the next lowest price is $40 at Walmart!
