So…how do you feel about a little holiday shopping in August? Save up to 78% at Amazon’s Toy Savings Event.

This cute Webkinz Leopard is 65% off–originally $14.99 on sale for $5.19. These make great birthday gifts!

The Small World Living Super Cool Ice Cream is 30% off (list $11.99, on sale for $8.26).

Save 40% on a LeapFrog Leapster Explorer Grade School Globe-Trotter Pack (list price $99.96, on sale for $59.74). This item also qualifies for free shipping.

These are just a few of the toys that caught my eye. Some of the sale items offer free shipping while others will ship free when you spend $25 or more.

Check out Amazon’s Toy Savings Event to see if there’s anything you can tuck away for a future event. I shop year-round to help ease the financial burden during the holidays.

AmazonCyber Monday lasts all week long at Amazon.com. Some deals will sell out fast, but more deals are added throughout the day.

Right now, they have 60 deals posted, but not all of the deals are live yet. Here are a few deals that caught my eye:

Some of the deals will have a “Join waitlist” button. This simply means that the available discounts have been placed in carts, but haven’t been purchased yet. If a deal becomes available and you were added to the waiting list, you will get an alert in the right-hand corner of the page.

Amazon also has a slew of Kindle books discounted to $0.99, $1.99, $2.99, and $3.99. Head to Milwaukee Consumer for more info on the Kindle books.

Also check out Amazon’s Cyber Monday Week Deals in GPS–Garmin and TomTom models are marked down with 47% off and more savings.

Amazon 2011 Holiday Toy List Released

AmazonAmazon has just released their 2011 Holiday Toy List. This list is conveniently organized by age, gender, price, discount, brand, and category (such as arts, baby, cars, etc.).

Amazon is a great place to research toys. You will get a wealth of information about each item. The best part, in my opinion, are the reviews. Here you will find honest reviews of the products–and not just a few reviews, but tons!

Amazon is very popular which is why you can find so many reviews. Be careful though–while Amazon oftentimes has great prices, they aren’t always the best price. Two years ago the Zhu Zhu Pets were actually more expensive on Amazon. Do your research!

However, more often than not, Amazon will offer competitive pricing.
