Does Elf on the Shelf ever go on sale

I watched for it last year and hoped to get a deal post-Christmas. But no dice...I never saw it on sale. Does anyone know if any deals to be found?

Re: Does Elf on the Shelf ever go on sale

The best I saw was using a $5 off coupon that barnes and noble put up around the holidays (or was it 20% off one item). I can't really remember. But it wasn't exactly ever on sale, it was using the store coupon on the elf on a shelf. I only vaguely remember because I told a friend about it that wanted to buy the elf of a shelf. I was lucky and someone in the family gave us one.

Okay, I'm glad I just wasn't missing it last season. They were so hot last season that everyone was chasing them. Maybe there will be deals this year? I want one too but the $30 price tag for what it is seems really steep.

Re: Does Elf on the Shelf ever go on sale

I tried last year, but never could get a deal on it. I ended up with a cute elf from the dollar spot at target. my kids love him. my oldest has already started asking about Elfie (the name he gave him). I refused to pay $30 for an elf. LOL

There are some coupons available now, but in the fine print you can't use them on Elf on the Shelf. I'm still on the search as well. lol!

My go-to deals site is stealengine.com...I searched and it looks like there have been two very minor deals in the past 6 months, but you can actually set up a wishlist and get an email when the item you want goes on sale, so if it does go on sale you won't miss it

Here is the link: http://www.stealengine.com/?q=elf on the shelf

I got ours at Target last year the day after Christmas half off...look in the books section...they were not with the rest of the holiday items.

Our Target was sold out of the books around the second week of December and never got more in. This was my original plan last year and it just didn't pan out as Barnes and Noble and Target were sold out.

There is a deal on ebay right now for elves of different ethnicities if anyone is looking. The blue-eyed Caucasian one I'm seeking is sold out. I assume they're the real deal by the feedback...
