Barnes & Noble: Elf on the Shelf Set Only $2?!

12:31 PM MST
The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Wowser! Check out the email and picture above that I just received from reader Ali:

I was in Barnes and Noble and they are doing a huge $2 clearance.  They had tons of those boxed Elf on the Shelf book/elf that retail for close to $30 for only $2.  And they had a lot of them in both stores I was in today (Fairfield City, Connecticut).  These are great holiday gifts, especially just before the season starts!  They also had monopoly games, puzzles and halloweeen stuff marked to $2!

You may want to call your local store to see if they have any in stock before making a special trip over there. Be sure to come back and leave a comment if you’re able to find these at your local Barnes & Noble store too!

(Thanks, Ali!)

    Thank you! I stopped by after work and got a pale skin boy and a skirt, plus an adorable penguin stuffed animal all for $2 each. Even the cashier commented that they’re a great deal!

    I used the in store pickup option online to see what was available.

  • Chad says:

    None in the Norman, OK store.

  • Ali says:

    As of 6:45 pm the Norwalk, CT had approximately 30 left. I bought the last 2 light skinned elves, but there are a lot of dark skinned elves. I asked a salesperson and they will ship for $3.99 for the first and .99 each additional. Norwalk, CT store tel.203 866 2213. I know I saw over 75 units at the Westport, CT store earlier today as well.
    Good luck.

    If I can get to a B & N, and they have even 1 available, I will get it for you to do a give away, Collin. We have one and my kids love it. It adds some magic for them :)

    I’ll keep you posted!

  • Debra Brock says:

    I went to our local B & N in Newington, NH this afternoon, and they had sold out, but a very nice customer services employee called the other nearby locations and was able to find me dark-skinned boy and girl elves. I was able to give my cc info on the phone and have an elf shipped right to my house for $3.99!

  • Tammy R. says:

    If someone has any extra that they want to sell at a decent price I would like to purchase 2 of them. Please send me a email if you have any and would be willing to sell me 2 of them. I will pay for the shipping just let me know what your asking for them.

    Thank you,

  • Alexis says:

    I have a few extra that I would be willing to sell of anyone is interested. My email is

  • Susan says:

    2 stores in Long Beach , CA. 1 store was sold out, so I went to the other store, where they had 11 on the floor., about half light skinned, half dark skinned.

  • Nikki says:

    I got the last one in Redlands California! I can’t believe the picture! Wow!!

  • Whitney says:

    I went to 3 B&N in SoCal, Toluca Lake, Burbank and Glendale. Glendale has a few dark skinned ones left — I made off with a TON of great deals, besides 5 elves they also had memory games, cookie and cupcake kits, Christmas Childrens books (and a few really nice coffe table Holdiay books, and a good selection of Christmas Cards! Best $26 bucks I could have spent! Next Christmas just got a lot easier for me!

  • lacie says:

    Wow I wanted one for my kids …. If someone has one for 2$ is like one … Thanks email is

  • marie says:

    Westport, CT still has some. They only have male light skinned ones though. I called and had 2 shipped to my home for a total of $9 and change!

  • Colleen says:

    Thank you so much for posting this! I was able to get some for my daughters at $1.80 each since I am a member. They had maybe 15 left but I didn’t want to be greedy and buy more than I needed since I know others in the area still wanted them.

  • Scham says:

    I have been trying to locate one and can’t! Anyone have an extra $2 elf they would be willing to sell? I really want to get one for my son. I will pay shipping. Thank you so much!

  • Carmen says:

    I called all the locations in San Diego and the only one that had any left was at the Bookstar/Barnes & Noble in Point Loma (Rosecrans St.) I bought a few right before closing and there were still about 20 or so total left in both boy and girl and light and tan colored elves.

    • Single mom says:

      Thanks, Carmen so much for the heads up. I live just a bit north of Atlanta and all sold out here. I called your B&N and was able to order two and have shipped to me. Cashier was so nice and helpful and we compared accents. She said they have a few more left for anyone still looking. Good luck!

    • Shirley says:

      Thanks Carmen I got their last one (I’m in East County San Diego).

  • Lynette says:

    If you google Elf on a Shelf there are a bunch of places offering it online for under 10 you can do an order on Walmart with free store pick up too!!

  • mosleymom says:

    thank you! i picked 5 as gifts for next holiday season. I love this Christmas tradition.

  • Amber says:

    If anyone has an extra they would be willing to sell please email at a _ lane 05 at hotmail. Thanks! My B&N said available online, but in store was not.

  • Judy says:

    I found some cute stuffed animals for $2 but the manager would not let me use the $10 off $19.99 toy purchase. The coupon did not exclude clearance but she wouldn’t even try the coupon…just said NO!

  • kelly says:

    norwalk CT store still had 20 dark skin boys as of 30 minutes ago…they can ship anywhere in US…call now!

  • C. says:

    My local store in Springfield, VA is sold out. I went by right after work yesterday and was told that someone had come in a few hours before and purchased all that they had (the cashier estimated that it was about 25-35). I don’t know what that person was planning to do with them, maybe donate them (I hope but doubt) but just want to express my disappointment with fellow deal hunters who purposefully scoop up all of a good deal without giving someone else a chance :(
    Luckily, my best friend in New York found about 50 at her B&N at 82nd & Broadway in Manhattan so maybe give them a try!

  • Laura says:

    Did anyone get any extras they would be interested in selling? None of the B&N around me had them in store.

  • Pam Crapps says:

    WOOHOO I got three shipped my grandkids are going to be so happy.

  • Sharlene Anne says:

    The San Diego, La jolla store has about 30 left! If you order for hold/pick up online they honor the $2 price or just call they’ll hold it for you for one day.

  • Grace says:

    found some at Barnes and Noble Pasadena. I tried pick up in store and they called me to say they could not hold clearance items but they had two dark skinned boys left. Got one today for $1.85 when I used the 15% off coupon too. Thanks so much!

  • Carol Robinson says:

    My grand daughters were so excited to see if I could buy one for them but no luck in Dayton, OH. If anyone out ther could help mr fine one I would really appreciate it. Thanks Grandma Carol

  • Cindy says:

    There are a few dark skinned boys left in Bethesda, MD. Called Gaithersburg, MD and Rockville, MD, all out. I was able to snag a girl and a boy…score! Seems like they cleared out of the girls first!

  • Wendy says:

    My Twin Falls, ID store shipped them all back to the vendor. Does anyone know of a store that has a very light skinned boy with the lightest hair they make available?

  • Mari says:

    I’m in CT and tried Danbury , Waterbury, Hartford and they are full price.
