looking for a certain gift for holiday but want to stay in budget . you may be suprised at the ways to find the item for less .

So post what you are looking for and maybe someone can help or post any tips for getting items - even ones that never go on sale for less $ out of pocket .

IE Video Game consoles - IPods Ipads etc are often at a set price by Apple- Xbox - nintendo etc that the companies are not allowed to price them for less BUT you can watch for sales tha include free items - free GC to store with purchase that you can use for other gifts or if walmart even food shopping.

Free cases- covers games etc with cameras - ipods ipads etc , if you cant find a sale at least watch for a freebie with the item.

if you plan ahead you can use GC from points programs etc like swagbucks for amazon GC; to cut the costs down .

videogames
Toys r us often has buy one get one 50% off or Buy 2 get 1 free videogame sale that covers xbox - wii - DS etc
is also often good online ( although to be honet i find their shipping a bit high - but sometmes there is free shipping if a certain amt is spent)

look at out of the norm places.
Kid a thomas the tank engine fan ? or legos or knex etc craft kits use a craft store - the on sale price may be 1-2$ higher but if you can use a 50% off coupon and get one per week - you can do well.

I'm looking for these:

I'm not finding them online for less than about $25 (with shipping). The few advertised for less have high shipping which brings the price back up.

I wouldn't even know in which brick-and-mortar stores to look for this toy, in order to follow the ads.

Don't forget to check specials at various retailers!

One toy that Wesley wants is 49.99 at Target. It's 52.99$ at Toys R Us, but by spending over $50 in that department, I get a 10 pack of Hot Wheels cars free.

i am looking for one of those bluetooth cases/ keyboard for an ipad 2
if anyone sees any listed in any early release black friday deals or elsewhere please let me know.

right now i see them for about 80-100$ at stores but they are the name brand ones .

i see one at kohls for 49.99 and if the 30% off coupon works on it it might be worth it to get it thru kohls or online if i dont have time to shop and just immediately pay off the CC .

but if i can do better with black friday it might be worth it ,
i have $$ coming tome in staples rewards from ink trade ins etc that would go towards one at staples if they had a sale but i al also considering using the staples reward $ for something else too

We are trying to get a tablet for DD. Missed the one on groupon and the 1st Big Lot too,

For us-we desperately need a mattress. So That should be a process. I want a real nice one but at the best price. And in another economy it wouldnt be a gift but this year...

All You Magazine Subscriptions

I want to renew my mom's All You magazine subscription for Christmas and if the price is right, I would like to start getting the magazine for myself. I currently buy it off of the magazine rack for myself and have a soon to expire gift subscription for my mom. Thanks!

Ooooohhhh, I'd like an All You subscription too and I missed the last good one Amazon had. I also check slickdeals for deals as well.
