After several years of operating a deal finding blog and website, I've seen quite a few patterns develop. I mention them from time to time and this is one of those times. I have noticed a trend on Amazon.com, typically, Amazon will cut toy prices randomly up to 90% off during the first three weeks of December. That is actually when I buy the bulk of my children's toys, during these dramatic price drops.

{How to Save Money on Toys with Amazon.com}

1. Create an Amazon.com Account

2. Add to your shopping cart all of the toys (and even other items) you want to purchase

3. Each day, check your shopping cart. I do mean each day too, price drops will come and go very quickly much like coupons.

4. If you see your item drop in price, checkout then before the price increases.

You will not see decreases in every single item you want to purchase, however I have noticed that the majority of toys my boys want typically do decrease in price pretty drastically at one point or another. The other items I need that do not decrease, I end up buying at other stores. This isn't the best deal for those who like purchasing all of their Christmas gifts weeks in advance but if you want  to get the  best deals then this might be the route for you.

Personally, I love Amazon price drops and I like the thrill of this type of deal hunting. To get free 2 day shipping, you can purchase a Prime Membership or if you are eligible, you can sign up for a free 30 day trial. Also, if you have Amazon Mom or Amazon Student, you'll get free 2 day shipping that way as well.

Let the deals begin!
