Best Amazon Holiday Deals: Toys, Movies under $10, Stocking Stuffers & More

Best Amazon Toy Deals

Best Amazon Prices & Deals

I wanted to offer up a single post that captures the best Amazon deals I’m finding as I’m finding them to help you out this holiday season. Rest assured, I’ll still highlight stellar deals as standalone posts as I see them, too! Scroll to the bottom for additional tips about this list and shopping on Amazon.


Amazon Shipping Cutoff Dates

We are down to the wire, folks! At this point, you are only going to be able to get guaranteed shipping by 12/24 if:

  1. You are an Amazon Prime member. (If you’re not, sign up for your FREE 30-day trial NOW.
  2. You are buying qualifying items. The other day, I noticed that in general, the items shipped and sold by Amazon were giving me a guaranteed 12/24 delivery date. Items shipped and sold by 3rd parties may not offer you that guarantee.

For this reason, I’ve worked to ONLY highlight deals that meet the above criteria.

Important: tomorrow (Sunday, 12/22) will be the final update to this year’s post given the holiday cutoff dates!

Find even more deals at Amazon’s Black Friday page. A few notes about this list & shopping on Amazon:

  • I’ll update this list daily. Due to the rapid nature of deals on Amazon, I’m going to work to update this post daily with new deals and remove from the list expired ones. Feel free to “bookmark” this post to refer back – or just click on the banner “Best Amazon Holiday Deals” in my right hand sidebar to visit it at any time.
  • Amazon prices and availability can be very fickle. I’ll do my very best to keep this post updated with current prices, but understand that prices on Amazon often change quickly and without warning. Be prepared to jump if you see a hot deal.
  • Get a free 30-day trial of Prime. This would be an EXCELLENT time to snag a free 30-day Prime trial membership if you’ve not done so already. With your trial, you’ll receive free 2-day shipping on many items. This comes in extremely handy as I’ll be posting many very cheap deals.
  • My favorite deals I’ll bold in red. Deals that I think are particularly good discounts and may go quickly I’ve bolded in red for you.

Happy shopping!

    This is the most dangerous page on the entire Internet (at least for my budget). I keep thinking I’m done with my Christmas shopping…. and then you post another update that I just can’t resist! Thanks so much for gathering all these great deals in one convenient place! :)

  2. says

    Thanks for these deals! Makes my holiday shopping much easier.

    Also I’ve heard some wonderful news about Amazon having a yearly membership program for a huge chunk load of perks to go along with it. 2 day shipping options, free online streaming, no more minimum of $$ to get a free of this.. It’s great!

  3. Sheila says

    Thanks for all the great deals you have been posting. Because we live on an island I do almost all of my shopping online. You have tipped me off to some of the most exciting finds! Thank you!

    • Angela R says

      I haven’t researched this extensively but my understanding is that magnaformers and magnatiles are just plain expensive. I agree though…I am not sure why and wish they were cheaper.

  4. kelly says

    The megablocks first stable blocks don’t seem to be $10 right now. At least not when I see it. Is it with an additional % off or something I’m not seeing?
    Thanks and thank you so much for the great deals!!!

  5. D'Anna says

    Good to know since UPS seems to have eaten the KitchenAid I bought myself back around Cyber Monday so I get to go back on there and buy it again…for MORE! But hey, customer service said they would give me free shipping….again. I’m debating on buying something else w/ my refund, not sure I like having to pay more to replace the lost thing.
