  • Lindsay S says:

    I was able to get the nerf gun this morning and I got the beyblade destroyer dome last night for 19.99 with the 5.00 credit you posted about yesterday!! Thanks so much, I was going to go to target for their black friday deal, but now I don’t have to and I got it cheaper!!!

  • barbie says:

    got madden 2013 fir teh xbox for 20.00!! it’s normally 50, but half off plus the $5 promotion they had yesterday! thanks collin!!!

  • Caroline says:

    What am I missing? I only see Black Friday Week deals, but nothing about lightening deals or limited time ones!

  • Stacey says:

    Just as a note….
    If you have one of those old Amazon mom accounts; BE CAREFUL not to click for the free trial of prime. I did that, and got charged the $79 with no free trial. When I called, to tell them that I made a mistake and didn’t realize I want eligible, they deleted my account. Now they tell me that in order to get the Mom benefits, I need to join Prime for $79. Never mind that I had been a member of the Mom program for over 2 years. They told me there was nothing they could do. They wouldn’t even offer me a discount!

    • katie says:

      Same thing happened to me. I read it as if you have a moms account you can try the prime for 3 months. Never once did it indicate it was charging me. As a matter of fact it even stated on the screen I had three months to cancel OR i would be charged the $79. If I had not read your post Stacey I would not have looked at my account and realized I had been charged. I called and they are reversing the charges but that takes 2-4 business days which means i won’t have my money in time for black friday or cyber monday, so this REALLY hurts my plans for holiday shopping. I asked how they can not actually state they are charging you right NOW. And he didn’t have an answer. Then he said he checked and I joined the moms feb. 2011. They should make it clear if you were a member of the mom program even if you never were a prime member it doesn’t matter what the screen says you will be immediately charged. Thank you again Stacey!

      • Stacey says:

        Just so you know…..when they reverse the charges, they may cancel your Moms membership too! That’s what happened to me. They said I was ‘grandfathered’ in to the Mom program and now that they canceled it, there is nothing they can do unless I pay

    I got the skylanders figures for $2.97, now I wont have to go to Best Buy on black friday! And I got lego harry potter years 5-7 for wii for $10, and yesterday the hunger games book for $1.96! I love amazon :)

    • mj says:

      ha! Awesome! i did the exact same deals! so much better than waiting in long lines, huh?

      • Kim says:

        I grabbed these skylanders figures b/c they seemed like a great deal. We are getting my boys a Wii for Christmas and they always see this game displayed at target and they are in love with it! So excited to give it to them, but I am having trouble figuring out this skylanders thing. I have the Wii, I now have 4 figuress that I paid $2.99 each for. What next? Do I try to find one of the starter packs for a good deal? Do I have to get spyro’s adventure (that is is what the figures are labeled as), or can I get the giants starter pack which seems like it is going to be cheaper than the spyro’s game. Will the spyro’s figures work with the giants starter pack if I am able to get that cheaper!

        Someone who is knowledgable about this, please help! I know nothing about this stuff!

        Thank you so much in advance!

        • Alisha says:

          Yes, all of the Spyro characters will work with the new Giants game…not sure about the other way around. I was going to get my son the Giants game at Walmart on Black Friday for $38.96, cheapest price i’ve seen, everywhere else is $49.99, however, last Saturday I received a coupon from Toys R Us that was Buy the Giants starter pack for $74.99 and get the Spyro Starter pack for FREE $69.99 Value, so I did that deal and now will have both games. I also purchased the Spyro characters for $2.99 so my son will have more options to play the games. And now I don’t have to get them at Best Buy on Black Friday either.

        • Crystal says:

          I am new to Skylanders too – we got my son the Skylanders Giants starter pack for Christmas – but here is my understanding (from the salesperson at Target and reading reviews online). In order to play the game you need a Starter Pack. The starter pack includes a few figures, the game, and a portal (the thing that the characters stand on, usually on display at Target). Spyro’s Adventure is the old one and Giants is the newest version. From what I understand, the Spyros figures will work with the Giants game so you can get either, but I did read that the portal that comes with the Giants version does not require batteries while the older version does. So based on that alone, I went with the Giants starter pack.

          Once you have the starter pack, you can then purchase more figures which will expand the characters available in the game and open up new stuff in the game.

          If you do purchase the Skylanders Giants starter pack, it is on sale at Target through tomorrow for $49.99 ($25 off). My Target had a few left yesterday when I was there – it may also be available online, or you could try price matching at Walmart or Toys R Us. Hope that helps!

          • Kim says:

            Alisha, Crystal, thank you soooo much for your detailed explanations!!!! It helps a ton! Alisha – what a great find at Toys R Us…I would have definitely done what you did and picked them both up!!!

        • debra says:

          FYI, the game is addicting! My boys have the Spyros game and now have around 40 characters. It gets expensive but I buy one as a reward for good grades etc. I bought the Giants game this week and have already purchased numerous Giants figures as well. This will be another Skylanders Christmas! Another fyi, you will need at least one figure from each of the elements in order to get to each level of play. Each figure is labeled fire, water, etc. I learned that one the hard way. Every time they reached a new level I had to buy another element figure to open up that level.

    • Shannon says:

      Were the Skylanders Lightning Deal? I don’t see them under the missed deals or current deals.

      • Kim says:

        They are still showing up under available when you scroll through, but they show as 100% claimed. They had 4 figures available for $2.99 each.

      • Crystal says:

        They are listed as claimed, but when I tried to join the waitlist, I was able to buy 3 of them immediately – I am still on the waitlist for the 4th.

        • Kim says:

          Look ahead a litlte bit, in about an hour or so, I think they are going to come up again. They are mystery ones, but says something to the effect of video game accessories for $2.99 and there are 3 of them I think…A huge guess here, but maybe they are going to offer it again…different characters? Who knows?! I will have to try to remember to go back and check…

      • Lynn702 says:

        Yep, you can still buy when you join the waitlist. Shows that the items will be in stock on Nov. 22nd. :)

        • Kim says:

          Okay, I think I am going with the Giants starter pack. I just read on that there is an in store deal going on for $50 and there is a $5 off coupon flyer that he linked to to get it for $44.99. It is ringing up incorrectly though (right now at least) and doubling the $5 discount to make it $39.99. Several people confirmed. That seems like it is the best I am goingto be able to do on this!!! Might head over there after work, fingers crossed that they have some left!

          • Lynn702 says:

            Thanks for the info! Ran to TRU after work and they had plenty on hand; paid $43.22. It would’ve been $4 cheaper on Amazon doing the Lightning Deal on Thanksgiving but thought I had a better chance of getting through TRU. :)

        • Shannon says:

          I click to join waitlist & it loops back to another screen. Any pointers?

  • Ashleigh says:

    do we have to add the items to our cart and immediately check out to get the deal…not sure how it works

  • Lauren says:

    The $5 off of $25 credit counts before the lightening deal price. I got the $19.99 probe thermometer for $14.99!

  • Debra Brock says:

    Thanks for the heads up! I scored the Pure Fun 9001KJ Kid’s Jumper Trampoline! I took a few minutes to compare prices (and get my husband’s blessing ;)), but am glad I didn’t take too long, they went FAST!

  • an says:

    so i am really confused, because the timer on the leapfrog was deal starts in 10 minutes. i scrolled forward to future deals, then scrolled right back, and it showed, join waitlist, then it said waitlist full, now i reloaded page, and it says join waitlist…..

  • Shannon says:

    I have added multiple items to my cart, then at proceed to checkout where I enter payment info the prices go back up. I go back & view my cart and the items are at the lightning price still and are listed as available. Any pointers?

  • rebekah says:

    I got the tag reading system for $15!!! So excited right now! It was a lightning deal for $20, but they took the $5 code off. :)
