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.

    • Paula Mason

      Can you tell me how you found them online for store pick- up please?

      • Gayle

        Search for Elf on the Shelf on BN website. Choose pick up in store option and type in your zip when prompted. It will show you what’s available nearby. Price online is $29.

    None in the Norman, OK store.

    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.

    • Kristen

      Just called Westport, and they are sold out already! If anyone scored an extra, I’d love to pay you for one.

    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 πŸ™‚

    I’ll keep you posted!

  9. Debra Brock

    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!

    • Leigh

      I’d like in on that! Any way you could help me get them?

    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,

  11. Alexis

    • Tammy R.

    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.

    • Kristen

      Both Long Beach stores are now sold out. Look like I’m 2 steps behind.

  13. Nikki

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

  14. Whitney

    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!

  15. lacie

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

  16. marie

    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!

  17. Colleen

    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.

    • rebecca g

      what area are you in?

      • Colleen

        This was the Nashua, NH store.

        • rebecca g

          thank you!

    • Scham

      Colleen which store was that?

  18. Scham

    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!

  19. Carmen

    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

      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

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

  20. Lynette

    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!!

  21. mosleymom

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

  22. Amber

    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.

  23. Judy

    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!

  24. kelly

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

  25. C.

    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 πŸ™
    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!

    • MH

      I am confused. I called the NY store and they will not honor the $2 price if they ship it to me. πŸ™

      • Sarah

        Call the 82nd and Broadway in Manhattan. They are shipping to me with the $2 price. If they dont, then speak to a manager and say that they are already doing it for someone else!!! Good luck πŸ™‚

    • Sarah

      Thanks for this comment C. I am in Indiana and there are none here. So I called the 82nd and Broadway store in Manhattan and they were soooo nice and they are sending 2 (one for me and one for my girlfriend) out tomorrow! WOOHOO!

    • heatherlovesfred

      So excited!!! Just called the NY store at 82nd & Broadway and got 2 for just under $10 shipped!!

      Here’s the number I called. Good luck! πŸ™‚

      • MH

        Thank you! I will try again! πŸ™‚

        • MH

          I’m so upset. They are sold out now πŸ™

  26. Laura

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

  27. Pam Crapps

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

  28. Sharlene Anne

    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.

    • Destinee

      Is this at the Dalton Bookstore? I tried looking online but it said they didnt have any in stock πŸ™

      • Sharlene Anne

        It’s the Barnes and Noble “Bookstar” on Genesee Ave.

  29. Grace

    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!

  30. Carol Robinson

    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

  31. Cindy

    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!

  32. Wendy

    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?

  33. Mari

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