Tuesday’s Tip Jar – Thomas Trains

September 2, 2008 at 2:34 pm 3 comments

Thomas Wooden Trains and accessories are expensive. However, there are ways you can save money when purchase Thomas items.

AC Moore and Michael’s both carry Thomas items. Use the 40% off (or sometimes 50% off) coupons to purchase Thomas toys. Usually around Christmas there are sales on Thomas toys, but there isn’t much selection since everyone is trying to buy the toys at the same time. By using a coupon, you will have more of a selection.

Thomas items are also discontinued. Sometimes you can get better deals when an item is retiring.

These are the best deals I have found on Thomas items. Other stores have sales, but rarely are they more than 25% off. Plus, if you order online, you will probably have to pay shipping also, which just increases the cost.

    I did not know Michael’s sells Thomas toys. I will keep that in mind, for my little boy loves Thomas the Train. Toys-R-Us recently gave away a free one, and when we finally got around to going, there were 3 left, and they were all of Thomas only. My son did not complain too much though, for it was a new train, no matter if he had one similar to it already. I really wanted to get him the Percy one though.
