Target: PlaySkool Activity Ball ONLY $2.48!

Well, it looks like Target has started to clearance some of their toys already! One deal to note is on the PlaySkool Activity Ball! I've heard reports from a few sources now that it's on clearance for just $7.48! Plus, you can use the $5/1 coupon from here to score one for just $2.48! What an awesome price! Make sure to price check this toy because it may not be marked.

Let us know if you come across this toy or any other clearance toys!

(Thanks, TheFrugalFind!)

Oooo...I'm going to check that today! Thanks! :) I have some babies who I'd love to buy toys for but so far all of the great deals have been on bigger kid stuff!

Leesa said...

I am also going to go and check this out today! I'll report back and let you know if I score this deal. I sure hope so because I haven't bought anything yet for my youngest. Oops!

My Target had it for $11.18 on clearance, so $6.18 after the coupon. I'm waiting to see if it goes down more!

Anonymous said...

My Target also had it for $11.?? so around $6 after coupon!

My Target has it for $16. ): Thanks anyways for posting though!

I got it last night for $2.98 at my Target!

kristin m said...

Awww...I picked it up on Friday for $6.28 & thought I got a great deal! I will check to see if it goes lower & have them price match!!! Thanks!

Kathi said...

Can't wait to check - Thanks! If it is higher, I'll check again Tuesday morning when they do their clearance mark downs.

Off topic, but I wanted you all to know that I tried to vote for Collin this morning and none of my votes counted. My husband voted on his computer and they counted...I don't get it...I thought it was strange that, as popular as Collin and her site is, she dropped to second place. Please check to see if your votes are really be counted. What I did first was clicked "view results", moved my cursor over the line under her site to see her total votes, and then voted, and checked to see if the number of her votes went up, and it didn't. I even emailed Collin and babycheapskate@gmail.com...I haven't heard back yet. If you read the comments on that site, right now it's the last comment from "Nap", who said her votes aren't being counted. I'm going to vote on my husband's computer to try to get Collin closer...let's all help get her to NUMBER 1. Again, please check to see if your votes are being counted. Thanks.

Becky said...

I'm hoping to check this out tomorrow. Has anyone priced the G-Force Blu Ray combo pack?

Anonymous said...

I got one yesterday for 11.48...well 6.48 after coupon..I should have checked the other target may have been cheaper..though I was very excited..even more excited that I found the CHristmas mr potato heads too finally!!

Midwest Coupon Mom said...

Fran, I saw your comment and went to vote and the same thing happened to me. I voted several times and the vote count never jumped.

Heather said...

My Target (Northern Minnesota) also had it for $11.18 on clearance, so I ended up paying$6.18 after the coupon, but that's still such a sweet deal for a present! :)

fran said...

Midwest Coupon Mom,
I know. Someone else left a comment on that site that her votes aren't being counted either, but baby cheapskate left a comment that Collin's button is working fine, but it's not...I just sent her another email. This is definitely a rip off. I wonder how many other votes aren't being counted!?!? Let's rally around this one, for Collin, and send emails by the tons until this problem is fixed.

kara03 said...

Fran.. I was wondering the same thing about Collin being in second. So i did what you suggested and my votes were not being counted either~

Heather said...

In the Target weekly AD that came out this morning they have G-Force DVD priced at $15.99, and for the Blu-Ray it just states "Low Price", I'm guessing it will be $19.99 like most people are projecting. So with the $10 printable and $5 Target Blu-Ray, it should be around $4.99!

Midwest Coupon Mom said...

I (mommy2parker) left a comment right under cheapskates saying that mine weren't being counted. Maybe if we all post in the comments section over there, they will check into it more.

Midwest Coupon Mom said...

Something is definitely wrong with her button on that page because out of curiousity, I just voted one time for each of the blogs and my vote counted for every one EXCEPT Collin's.

Belle said...

Maybe it's only 1 vote per computer?!

fran said...

I didn't want to register on the cheapskate site...that's why I sent the emails. Try sending her an email...maybe if she gets enough of our complaints, she'll do something. I think if this isn't fixed soon, they should give Collin the $150 prize. With all of us that voted over and over again, I bet if Collin's votes were counted, she would still be in first place.

fran said...

Belle,
That's what I thought, but now I don't think so. None of my votes were counted today...if that were true, at least one would be counted. And how did swag grabber get close to 2000 more votes than Collin...I don't buy it.

Kim said...

YAY ! I was hoping these would be on sale soon ! I found a Christmas themed Mr. Potato Head Spud Toy at Target for $6.97. After the $5 coupon... $1.97! Great donation gift. Also, Kmart is having the Mr.Potato Head Suitcase on sale this week for $10.00 (down from $17) using the $5 coupon, makes it just $5 !!! I'm getting a lot of good deals for the childrens hospital !!! Thanks for all you deal posts, it's helping a lot !

Midwest Coupon Mom said...

I don't think it's one vote per computer because I just went back and voted for one of the other blogs for a 2nd time and it counted. Tried Collin's again and it didn't count.

fran said...

Someone doesn't want Collin to win...this contest is fixed (rigged). How else can you explain this?

Anonymous said...

My votes didn't count after i vote the first time :(

Mrs Save Alot said...

same for me, my vote didnt count and it was the first time I voted today...someone fixed something so that Hip does not win

Anonymous said...

The tinkerbell bluray is at target for 19.99 this week as well as the G force one... should be 4.99 after coupons! YAY!

Anonymous said...

Where is everyone getting the $10 printable G Force coupon? I would love to get this? Thanks for your help!

Anonymous said...

Maybe you can only vote one time.

erika said...

Got it! Thanks!

I have a question and I am sorry it is off topic- From the Ulta deal last week, I purchased a fragrance and got the free robe.I just today found that same fragrance for half the price at another store. If I return the original fragrance to ULTA, do I need to return the robe as well? Thanks for your help!

Anonymous said...

I picked up 2. Thanks

fran said...

Anon,
I would think that you would have to return the robe too. Why don't you show them the ad where the fragrance is cheaper...maybe they will match that ad...I'm not certain as I don't shop there, but it's certainly worth a try. My theory is "if you don't ask, you don't get". Good luck:)

pattil24 said...

just wondering . . . on these blog awards -- while I get what we're trying to do is show Colin 'the love', has anyone really looked into these awards? Ok -- I get that the $150 prize money is nice -- but the way I see it -- its pretty clever marketing for babycheep. For $150 they've got all us passionate couponers going to their website - which increases their traffic numbers which makes them more attractive to advertisers. What does Colin really get out of it other than a logo for another website on her website and $150? hmmmmmmmm I'm thinking this is just some very clever marketing - not a 'real' award that reflects the real quality of this website compared to others. Not the Colin doesn't deserve a ton of recognition - that is NOT what I'm saying. . .just want us to keep the perspective here. Don't flame me if you disagree -- just think its worth thinking about!

So, I went to my target today and they were back up at 11, yesterday when I went they were on clearance for 6, but not today. She said it was just a sat deal....

Bev said...

This is off topic here, but I'm not sure where else to post it. A while back, I got a bunch of coupons in the mail from Target. Included in there, was a coupon for a "$20 Target gift card when you open a Target baby registry". First of all, I'm not expecting a baby, nor am I planning to have a child anytime soon, so I'm not sure why I received the coupon book. I was at Target on Friday and took the coupon to Guest Services. I asked the clerk what I had to do to get the $20 Gift Card. She took the coupon, and within 15 seconds, she handed me a $20 Target gift card! No wonder I love Target!!!

Kim said...

Well, I didn't get the activity ball because it was still Clearanced at $12. I did get them to price match the mr. potato head suitcases though.

Anonymous said...

My Target had them clearance at $7.98 last night. Maybe the price is regional. I can't imagine them putting stickers on all of those toys and them removing them overnight. They were on an endcap where the clearance toys usually are.

My votes have not counted since yesterday. I noticed it when she started falling behind. Definately interesting......hmmmm

Toni said...

My Target had it for $ll.18 also. With the coupon it was $6.18 and they only had 3, so I bought it at $6.18. It is still a deal - down from $15.99. Thank you.

Heidi said...

I wish that there was a way to make sure that we all put where we're from on posts like this, or at what stores we've found that prices are better. That way we're not all running out to the same store or if it's regional, we could potentially figure it out that much sooner.

Anonymous said...

Got mine for $2.98 so happy

Anonymous said...

Great deal, got the last one. WOOT. and it was only $2.48 hehehehe

Leesa said...

I bought the toy for $6 and some change. Still a great deal, I think.

On another note... my votes aren't being counted either. Really not cool nor fair.

Couponaholic said...

It was on clearance at my Target (Spokane, WA) for $7.48, got it for $2.48 after coupon! WooHoo!

Voting: I just switched from Firefox to Internet Explorer and now my votes are counting... Try switching if you can~

fran said...

kara03,
That's what babycheapie said to do, but how do they explain when someone cast a vote for each of the 5, and Collin's vote is the only was that didn't register? SG's tally wasn't going up that much today and now all of a sudden, because so many people are complaining on that site, now SG's tally is increasing fast. I have Internet Explorer and my votes aren't counted. I swear this contest is fixed...We shouldn't have to change browsers...our votes should count.

still 15.99 at my store :(

$11.16 in Summerville, SC earlier today.

Thanks hip2save! I found it today at my local SoCal Target at $7.98. WOO HOO!!!

Anonymous said...

$11.16 in Carmel, IN. (Near Indianapolis). About 7 left. Did not want to buy any myself, but got excited when I FINALLY found the Santa Mr. Potato Head!!

Anonymous said...

Florence SC still has at $11.18, I asked if they knew when they would be lowered, he said that a seperate crew comes in and does that so he wasn't sure--they are marked down 30% at this time. The other stores must be 50%. I am going to keep checking.

Anonymous said...

My target in SoCA was still at $11 something. I asked the employee when they would be marked down more and he told me to just buy it and get a price adj within 3 weeks. Um, I don't think so. My luck, they will want to price adjust after the coupon. I will wait and hope they go lower. They had 4 left so I am taking my chances. Thanks for the tip!

Anonymous said...

I paid $6.18 for mine, which is a still a great deal. There were only 2 left in the store. I am going to try to have it price matched in a few weeks and see what happens...never hurts to try. :-)

Courtney said...

It's 11.18 @ my Target in Dayton, Oh :(

Here's the link for the G-Force coupon.

http://adisney.go.com/disneyvideos/animatedfilms/gforce/couponoffer/?cmp=dmov_dvd_gfo_coupon_url_gforcecoupon
?cmp=dmov_dvd_gfo_coupon_url_gforcecoupon

If for some reason this doesn't work I just typed in "G-Force coupon" in the Google search box. Several choices came up.

Carla in OR said...

If you guys are talking about price matching after you buy it...do you mean getting a price adjustment if it is clearanced to a lower price? I tried that on the TAG readers last summer and they said they do NOT price adjust on clearance! Lame! Hopefully it was just my store (that was Wilsonville, OR). They also would not let me return and repurchase the item, which is ridiculous IMO because someone is going to buy it for the clearance price...why waste the time of having someone reprice it and put it back on the shelf!? Maybe my customer service lady was just having a bad day...hope it works out for y'all!

wow !!! cant believe what happen to me tonight i went to target to get the activity ball and it was the last one,and it also was on sale for $11.18. I planed on getting two for gifts so ,anyway i pick those kodak cameras up and they were $3.97 and i got two and also swiss miss coca for $.97 and some driscoll raspberries for $2.50 and this is the best part my total. I used the $5 off for the toy (2)$5 off on the cameras and.50 off on the fruit and $1.00 on coca, are ready my sub total was $.86 yes Wooow Thats what i said so i asked the cashier how ? we went over the receipt and she took off the other $5 off cp that i had for the other (act. ball toy) i told her i only had one but she look at me and said Have a good night, oop was $2.33 ( I was all most scared to walk out the door)

Anonymous said...

Yes I am going to see if my Target will adjust the price to the lower clearance price. Hopefully they still do that. Not too long ago I bought a sweater that I liked on sale for $12 but didnt love it, went to return it and the cashier said this is on sale for $6 now are you sure you still want to return it...I actually said no for $6 I'll keep it. Hopefully they still do the same...who knows but worth a try....

I got a Star Wars Bionic Arm toy on clearance $20.99 and used my $5 off MQ to make it $15.99. (Orig. $29.99) so not bad for a gift down the road.

I tired to vote 3 times with no luck.

Collin, your sister seems sweet. I read her comment on the voting site.

Even if this does not work for you, just realize we all love you and are thankful for everything you do!

Some people have mentioned finding the Xmas Mr. Potato Head; where in the store did you find it? I look everytime I go.

Susan said...

The Santa Potato Heads are in the front of the store by the Christmas/stocking stuffer items. They are not by the toys.

Anonymous said...

anony.12:25 I found the spuds potato head in the Christmas section in my Target. If you dont find it ask someone who works in the toy dept. maybe. Good Luck

My store had it for $11.18 also. So it was 6:18 after coupon. I went ahead and got it because I really need to finish my Christmas shopping. Thanks for posting

$11.18 in Central MD. Bought it anyway!

Lindsay said...

We have 4 Target's within about 15 minutes of me. I went to one on Saturday and got two of these for $2.98 each ($7.98- $5 coupon). I stopped by a different Target this morning, and they were priced at $11. Bummer...'cuz that store had like 10 of them! Oh well, hopefully they'll go down before they're all gone, I can't pass up $3 toys...awesome deal!

Kristy said...

There were NONE left when i checked my Target today - and i didn't feel like driving to any others. But once i walked around the store a while, i checked the toys again and WOW! Someone must have just dropped one off, it was in the wrong spot and on clearance for $11.18, but since it was the last one and cute i grabbed it up and used my $5 C. I'll hold on to the reciept and check back at that Target & others for the cheaper price. Can't hurt to try or waste my time if i'm already there!

Mary said...

Heidi, which one did you go to in Central MD? I was planning on looking for it at the ones near me (Glen Burnie, Columbia, Mandomin)

Thanks for informing me about the Xmas Mr. Potato Head.

Just got two free cameras + overage. I also got three packs of batteries, baking soda and EPT tests. My total was 3.18!!! The activity ball was 15.99 still here!

Heather Sferlazza said...

I just got one for $2.98 in Towson, MD! My daughter will love this

Jennifer said...

Scored 3 of these Activity Balls. They were clearanced at $7.98 and I had (3) $5 coupons.. got them for $2.98 each! I also got (1) Kodak disposable camera free and (1) Swiss Miss. I also used the La Victoria "Save $4 off 2" printable coupon to get (2) bottles of taco sauce free (plus overage, since they cost $1.77 each). I also got the G-Force Blu-Ray/DVD combo for $7.99 after Sale, $10 Manuf. IPQ & $5 Target IPQ... WHOO HOO!! Saved $63, Spent $20!

Checked two stores in Tulsa for Playskool activity ball. Last night they had one left at a brand new Target, but it was still full price at $15.99, even scanned to make sure. I asked the manager about the price and how I had read about it being discounted to $7.98 in some areas. He told me that different stores discount at different times, and according to the need to do so. He said because this was a new store they probably wouldn't be discounted because they are moving more merchandise, everyone likes to shop in the brand new store! Today I checked another store and there were around 8 of them left and they were marked at $11.18, which would be 30% off the orig price as another poster noted. I agree with the person that said it is so important to give your city when you share your finds, otherwise the info is of no use to anyone else. I'm wondering if one buys at $11.18 minus the $5 off, and one trys to re-buy the orig purchase at the 50% off price, is this option actually available if they never discounted to 50% off. Perhaps it would just be best to take it to the store that probably did discount to 50% off so it would be in their system. Any thoughts on this?

Mary said...

At the Target in Baltimore City MD, it was still 15.99. And they had NO batteries left. I then went to a Target in Glen Burnie MD and it was priced at 11.18, I got one and saved the other coupon for when it goes cheaper. I am sending this one to my nephew. The Target in the city had the cameras at 4.24 and the second target had them for 3.84. I had no problems getting them, they pushed the coupon through!

Melissa said...

To ones that got the ball for 2 bucks if you dont mind which target did you find it that cheap b/c it seems all the T's dont have it on clearance. Thanks ALOT!!!

Ashley B. said...

I'm in Houston and they were only marked down to $11.18 - there weren't a ton left, but enough for me to wait to see if they get marked down further. I might check another Target to be sure...
does anyone know if the 2 pack Rayovack batteries in $1 spot are the right ones to buy w/ the $1 off coupon Collin posted the other day?
