FREE shipping from Disney – no minimum purchase! October 5, 2010

Tinkerbell dollI don’t know about you, but I am already stocking up for all those fall/winter birthdays and holidays! I have a box in my guest room closet where I’m tucking away the gifts, out of the kids’ sight. Here’s a surprise that might find its way into that box too — this giant 20″ tall Tinkerbell stuffed toy for just $12.99 (and FREE shipping)!

Nearly everything on the Disney site is up for grabs with FREE SHIPPING through October 10th, 2010 when you use the code MAGIC. This makes getting that shopping done even easier. Save time, save gas, shop online! Plus, their sale section is HUGE! That’s where I found Tinkerbell, plus some great deals on Halloween costumes (Mickey costume or Nemo costume for $19.50), housewares ($4.99 for 4-pc red, white, & blue Mickey plates), and pajamas for my kids (Tinkerbell or Handy Manny for just $7.99).

So, here’s a song to keep in your head for the rest of the day… “M-I-C.. K-E-Y… M-O-U-S-E!”
