Toys one of the "Don't Buy on Black Friday" items??

Postby woohoo » Fri Nov 16, 2012 9:18 pm

Read an article online that stated you can get better toy deals the week of December 9th than on Black Friday. I only have 2 BF's under my belt so I was wondering what some of you more seasoned shoppers think.

I think it depends. There are toys that I will buy, but I don't generally buy the "just for Black Friday" toys. If there is something I have my eye on that goes on sale, I will get it. If it just something random, I usually skip it because they are generally really bad!

I have already gotten some good deals, I have some good deals that I want to get on BF, but I am sure there will still be good deals in weekly flyers and online up until Christmas. It depends on what you are looking for. Usually popular toys are not discounted a tremendous amount.

Last year I bought my kid's a train table for 139 at toysrus the first week of November. Then I believe it was the first or it could have been second week of December they had the same table for 115! December is probably the best time for toys sales if you can't find it on black friday.

Judging from last year, toys were cheaper Black Friday and/or the couple weeks before Christmas. I found they were most expensive before Black Friday. I bought toys and then returned them once I saw the black friday ads with the same toys cheaper.

You can buy on black Friday and get a price adjustment if it goes down before Christmas. My experience has been that if a toy is on sale on Black Friday, it is unlikely to be priced less after Black Friday.
