Just went to my Target to get this if I could, and they were sold out. Called another Target near me to see if they had any in stock, and the guy on the phone acted like I was CRAZY when I said it was on sale for $9.99. The one they had left was not ringing up that way. Would love to get it, but I don't know what to do.

Not so much a deal on the gift but more how I got it -

my company gives us credits for logging healthy behaviors (working out, getting a physical, watching Elearning videos about our benefits, etc.) which can be redeemed for gift cards (not cash). I have $250 accumulated. Well, amazon.com is one of the gift card merchants - so I got my daughter a Kindle Fire and Just Dance 4 for free! An thanks to today's discount on JD4, I still have about $25 left over!

Wow. That's incredible. Makes me want to see if my company has this. There is something similar but I never really looked into it.

Wow, ours is very similar. We get $300 for being healthy, taking a "physical," and having low blood pressure. We also get $1 a day for carpooling.

The carpool money got me a $100 Target card and the $300 (okay, I'm not that healthy and only qualified for $150 MYSELF) will be in our checks in January.

But. The BEST DEAL I got was that my sister and mother both hit a financial adjustment and they decided we wouldn't do gifts this year, just a $50 gift card gift-grab ala White Elephant style. So, I saved BUNDLES this way. (They are fine really. My mom retired and had to adjust to a % lower monthly income and my sister might be relocated, so she's saving her pennies).

All I need to get is my husband's gifts (no clue what to get him) and my dad and his wife are getting a silly fun gift and I just need to buy it from the store ten steps from my office door.

All done for my kids--

Best deal by far: Ugg black boots for $5.78 at the local thrift store. They were very clean and look to have been worn maybe once. Then, my neighbor bought a pair and gave me her box. So, my 14 yo will have a great Christmas!

Great deal on BF was the Skylander Giants for $38 on Amazon and Just Dance 3 for $7.99.

My best Christmas deal was the flights for my daughter and I to go to WDW for her to check in for her Disney College Program. I only thought I could get her there by herself but then found out.. I had enough points on United to fly us both one way there.. then for $160 a one way from Orlando to Portland for my return .. thus giving me enough mileage for her return flight on Alaska for free. Christmas in my house would be packing her up for her program.. the BEST GIFT ever.. and then to fly total of two round trips costing cash of $160 woohoo

My best score is for my younger son - he decided he wanted a Land's End jacket like my husband is getting for Christmas, too. I got a good deal on my husband's, but when I went back to order one for my son, the sale was off. They were listing for ~$249. Waited a day or two, and then I got an email for 40% off any one item. Went back online to the jacket, it was now on sale for $99! Got 40% off that - $59. Also free shipping. Then I remembered my shopping your way rewards - checked that and I had $19.08 in rewards! So, in the end, with tax I paid $43.78 for the $249 jacket. I am pleased.

My best score so far was a thrift score. I got my foodie sister a Le Creuset Terrine that retails for $165.00 for $4.98. Now I just have to find her a good cookbook and a grocery store card to go with it!

Im nearly finished. Just need stocking stuffers. My best purchase was not a gift but a necessity. DS#3 needed a new carseat. I was able to get a Britax Marathon (orig. 199.99) for $97.50! on Cyber Monday. Safety & savings. Gotta love it!!

I'm done. I found a lot of good deals this year...my dh is getting three really nice pairs of dress pants- in the style and cut that he likes and looks good in- all for $12 a pair (reg. over $60 a pair). They are navy blue, khaki and brown. He'll be quite excited!

We signed up and WON a TWO YEAR family membership to a local museum that MY GIRLS WILL LOVE!!! They've been begging to renew our membership for the past 4 months, since it ran out. We bought two raffle tickets to support the local animal shelter ($2 each) and we won the family membership-worth $150. To me, that's a huge score!!!
