A Holiday Blasphemer?

Yesterday evening, I may have committed holiday blasphemy.

I received a Dance Star Mickey toy as a gift, and returned it at Toys R Us for store credit (which came out to $64.19 including tax).

As you may know, the Dance Star Mickey is sold out EVERYWHERE, and many people thought ahead, bought several, and are selling them online for twice the price. Me, I was just glad to get the store credit in the hopes that some other child will be delighted to receive the Mickey as a gift at a reasonable price.

That being said – I have not been paying much attention to the news lately, so I had no idea that Toys R Us was having a 50 percent off the ENTIRE store sale last night from 7-midnight. I shopped at 6 something, and paid FULL retail price for my daughter’s Tag Jr. system, Kai Lan Tag Jr. book,  and Calico Critters toys.

Paying full price for gifts while narrowly missing out on a storewide half-off sale might not sound too bad to you – but to me, it’s holiday blasphemy. No one ever pays full price at the holidays, right?

    Take your reciept in during the sale and they will credit you the difference then go shop again during the sale!! They just put an item I bought the day after Thanksgiving on sale this past weekend. I took my reciept in and they credited me the difference 🙂

  2. Well sometimes we do pay more but I just can’t believe the person checking you out didn’t tell you to hold off for a half hour to get the half off price. I sure wish I had known about their sale. I’ll bet it was a mad house there so maybe it was better I wasn’t there.

    • Yeah, I can’t believe it either. Of course, I only got $64 bucks for DSM when it is being sold for $99 at TRU (when they actually have one in stock!) But oh, well.
      I love Bloggy Moms! It’s nice to meet you, Megan!
