Posted on October 18th @ 11:25 am ET in Toy Books

We've just posted the 88-page Target Holiday Toy Catalog. Check it out here. The deals and offers in this catalog begin Sunday, October 28th and are available through November 21st.

Special offers in this year's book include Cartwheel Kid's Daily Deals up to 50% off every day from November 1st through Thanksgiving as well as a 25% off coupon for any one toy or sporting goods item starting on the 28th and valid through November 10th, both in stores and online.

You'll also get a $10 gift card with a $50 toys purchase. Don't forget Target REDcard holders get an extra 5% off all purchases, plus Target will soon have free shipping on all purchases.
When to Expect Your Favorite Store's Black Friday Ad
Posted on October 16th @ 1:12 pm ET in Guides & Tips

We took the data from the past several years to find out how soon before Black Friday each ad typically gets leaked here on GottaDEAL. We then based those days on this year's Black Friday date, November 23rd, to come up with a calendar for this year for many of the most popular stores.

Of course you may remember that the last few years we had crazy 2-day periods that saw ads from Walmart, Best Buy, Target, Kohl's, Sears, Sam's Club and many others all released right after each other. We expect something similar this year around November 5th-7th.
Amazon Introduces New Kindle Paperwhite E-Reader
Posted on October 16th @ 9:17 am ET in Industry News

This morning Amazon introduced a new version of their very popular Kindle Paperwhite e-reader. The new model has a thinner and lighter design with a flush-front display and is now waterproof. With Bluetooth, you can also listen to Audible audiobooks via Bluetooth headphones or speakers.

The new model will be available on November 7th although you can begin preordering today starting at just $129.99 for the 8GB model (twice the storage of the previous version). For a limited time you will also get 6 months of Kindle Unlimited for free, which is a $60 value.

As with all of Amazon's devices, expect discounts on this model during their Black Friday sale.
Amazon Unveils Their 2018 Top 100 Holiday Toy List
Posted on October 15th @ 9:35 am ET in Industry News

Today Amazon posted their annual list of the top toys. This year's list features 100 toys which were hand selected by both kids and Amazon's toy buyers. Nearly all of the toys on the list can be ordered right now on Amazon, and many can also be ordered using their Alexa voice service.

Some of this year's top toys include the Harry Potter LEGO Hogwarts Great Hall, the L.O.L. Surprise Bigger Surprise!, the Fisher-Price Think & Learn Rocktopus and the Barbie Care Clinic Vehicle.

You can browse this gift guide by age range and across 11 categories such as tech toys and arts & crafts. We expect Amazon to heavily feature toy deals prior to, during and after their Black Friday sale in an attempt to make up for the absence of Toys R Us this year.
Amazon Becomes Official Retail Partner for ABC's Shark Tank
Posted on October 15th @ 9:35 am ET in Industry News

Amazon announced today that they have become an official retail partner for ABC's hit show Shark Tank. The Amazon Launchpad Shark Tank Collection will highlight products seen on the show.

Starting today over 70 products from the first 9 seasons are available for purchase on Amazon, and products from the current 10th season and future seasons will be added over time. Products available now include Hatch Baby, Third Wave Water and Stasher, among others.
Sears Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection
Posted on October 15th @ 8:54 am ET in Industry News

Early this morning Sears filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection after securing a $300 million loan to keep their stores running and employees paid, at least for now.

Sears also announced that they will close 142 stores which is in addition to the 46 stores they previously announced would be closing by the end of the year. The Sears and Kmart web sites will remain functional as well during the attempted reorganization of the company.

While there is a good chance we'll still see a Sears Black Friday ad this year, this move appears to just be delaying the inevitable as many shoppers will avoid the longtime retailer. If you have Sears or Kmart gift cards or Shop Your Way reward points, use them as soon as you can.

Target Offers Their First Toy Sale of the Holiday Season
Posted on October 7th @ 11:48 am ET in Hot Deals

Starting today in Target stores and online on, you can save $10 on a $50 purchase in toys & games, or spend $100 and the discount jumps up to $25. You can maximize your discount by spending just over the $50 and $100 thresholds. If you need to order more than $100, we recommend splitting up your purchases so you can claim multiple discounts.

This discount runs through Saturday, October 13th. As usual with most Target promotions, there are exclusions for this deal including LEGO, L.O.L. Surprise and others. Free shipping is offered on orders of $35 or more (or on all orders if you're smart enough to have a Target REDcard).
Welcome to Our Coverage of Black Friday 2018!
Posted on October 6th @ 9:45 am ET in Site News

Now that we've posted our first leaked ad of the year, we want to officially welcome everyone back for another year here on GottaDEAL covering Black Friday and much more. Believe it or not, this is our 15th year covering Black Friday and we couldn't have done it without our great visitors.

As Black Friday has changed over those 15 years, so has our coverage.

We're going to help you score the best deals without having to fight the crowds.

We cover online deals all year long over on our main site, so we're in a better position than sites that only focus on Black Friday to filter out most of the thousands of so-called deals that retailers push during this time of year and bring you only the best of the best. So check back often, sign up for our alerts and follow us on Facebook & Twitter. It's going to be a fun couple of months!

A Note Regarding Watermarks on Ads...
Posted on October 1st @ 4:01 am ET in Site News

We source many ads ourselves every year and as we've done for several years, we do not and will not make them difficult for you to browse by adding watermarks on every page. Technically these ads don't even belong to us and letting you see them without distractions is very important.

While this is our longstanding policy, we do acquire ads from other sources that feel that your ability to clearly see the ads isn't as important as putting their watermarks on every page. While we can't prevent this, we'll try to clean up these ads as much as possible after posting them.
Changes to Walmart's Saving Catcher Coming Next Month
Posted on September 24th @ 1:34 pm ET in Industry News

Walmart is making changes to their very popular Savings Catcher program effective on October 29th so if you use this program, these changes could impact how you shop at Walmart.

Starting next month, Walmart Pay will be the only way to submit your receipts and redeem Savings Catcher earnings. You will no longer be able to scan paper receipts or use a desktop computer. Walmart Pay lets you pay with your credit or debit card (or a gift card) using your smartphone.

For more details including the email Walmart sent regarding these changes, see here.

Amazon Unveils New Alexa-Compatible Smart Home Products
Posted on September 20th @ 6:49 pm ET in Industry News

Amazon announced a bunch of new smart home devices today that are compatible with their Alexa voice assistant. Among these are new versions of the Echo Dot, Echo Show and Echo Plus.

Also announced is the Echo Auto which is the first Echo for your vehicle, the Fire TV Recast which combines a Fire TV streaming device with an OTA DVR, and the new AmazonBasics microwave with Alexa technology built in. A new Echo Sub can be paired with existing speakers for extra bass.

You can check out all the new products here, although we strongly recommend waiting a couple months as Amazon will likely offer deep discounts on these items during their Black Friday sale.
Sony Announces PlayStation Classic Retro Game System
Posted on September 19th @ 8:58 am ET in Industry News

Earlier this morning Sony announced the PlayStation Classic, a retro styled game system which plays 20 classic PlayStation games. Following up the success of Nintendo's NES and SNES classic systems, this system should be a very popular item this holiday season.

You can already pre-order the system for $99.99 from Best Buy and GameStop and we expect more retailers to offer it throughout the day. Release day is scheduled for December 3rd. The system includes 2 wired controllers, although you'll have to provide your own USB power adapter.
Get $30 off $100 Purchase at Target with REDcard Approval
Posted on September 16th @ 9:43 am ET in Hot Deals

This week only, Target is offering $30 off a future $100 purchase when you are approved for a new Target REDcard debit or credit card. This offer ends September 22nd and you'll have until October 31st to use your $30 off $100 coupon. There are exclusions to what the coupon can be used for.

As always, you'll get free shipping on all orders and an extra 5% off with a Target REDcard, so it's a great card to have. REDcard cardholders also get early access to select Black Friday deals.
Bon-Ton Sites Re-Launched Under New Ownership
Posted on September 16th @ 9:43 am ET in Industry News

The websites for the Bon-Ton family of stores re-launched this week under new ownership. CSC Generation Holdings, which owns other e-commerce sites such as DirectBuy, won the auction for the rights to Bon-Ton's trademarks, domain names and customer lists.

For now, it appears that the products sold on these sites are items that are drop-shipped directly from either the manufacturer or a distributor. The new Bon-Ton does not have any warehouses with product and they do not carry any of the old Bon-Ton exclusive merchandise lines.

While the new owners expressed their intentions to open physical stores, we would be surprised if this goes beyond an online-only endeavor that, other than using the names and logos, has virtually nothing to do with the original company which operated for 100 years.
