Tip of the Day Tuesday: Finding the Toys ‘R Us 12 Days of Christmas Deals

I posted a few weeks ago about the Toys ‘R Us 12 Days of Christmas Deals. I signed up for the e-mails, which I have always gotten in the past, but then, to be honest, I’ve been so wrapped up in the Amazon toy deals that I kind of forgot all about it.

So, if you’ve been wondering about the Toys ‘R Us 12 Days of Christmas Deals, apparently this year they decided to just post them on their website rather than sending out e-mails.

Here’s how you can find them:
*Visit ToysRUs.com
*In the upper left hand corner, you will see an ad that says “Countdown to Christmas: Deals of the Day”
*There are numbers (I believe today is day #4) that you can click on
*There is also a click that says “Click here for today’s coupons – In store only” Here is the link for today’s coupons.

Today’s deals are:Today’s coupons are good for:
*Save $10 on Thomas & Percy Carnival Set or Thomas Take Along Morgan’s Mine Adventure set ($29.99 w/ coupon)
*Save 50% off these Nintendo DS coupons (I can’t see the images to post what’s listed, but they will be $9.99/each)
*Save $20 on 12″ Thomas the Tank Engine Bike or Disney Princess Travel ‘N Trike ($39.99 each w/ coupon)
*Save $10 on singing machine disco light karaoke system ($49.99 w/ coupon)
*40% off V.Smile pocket portable learning system ($29.99 w/ coupon)
