Your Skylanders SuperChargers Shopping Guide For Black Friday 2015 — Always Updating!

SKYLANDERSSUPERCHARGERSblackfriday

Black Friday 2015 is almost here, and to get all you Skylanders fans prepared, I’m writing up your ultimate shopping guide to let you know where (and when!) the best deals are. Some of these stores want to promote their Black Friday deals in all their glory, so they will be trying out different ways they can attract customers inside, this may mean putting up posters with these new deals, or using a commercial flag pole to showcase the different Skylanders deals in their stores, so be on the lookout as you may miss it if you don’t look up!

The guide will be broken into two sections, so be sure to look at both sections!

First, I will have it broken down in a store-to-store basis (in alphabetical order). Each store I will share the deals, what time the sale goes live, and if you will be able to get the deals online or not. If you’re not the most confident with online shopping, why not have a read of https://www.salesforce.com/products/commerce-cloud/resources/what-is-ecommerce/ first so you get more familiar with the world of ecommerce.

Secondly, I will break each product down into categories (figures and starter packs mostly) and where the best place to get those will be.

So let’s start out with the store breakdown, if you want to see just the best place to get each item, head to the 2nd section.

(and remember… this guide will always be updating… so check back frequently!)

SECTION 1: STORE-BY-STORE BREAKDOWN

AMAZON

Amazon has not made their Black Friday plans known, but I’d imagine they will follow their plans of years past. They typically price match the best, or one of the best, deals and offer them during their “lightning deal” program. Go to the deal page during the announce time period and add the product to your cart (if the product is still in stock).

Lightning deals are often times quick for really great deals, so I’ll keep you updated as much as possible

BEST BUY

  • $49.99 — Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Pack
  • Save $5 when you buy Skylanders SuperChargers toys ($10.49 a figure when buy two, $12.49 a vehicle when you buy two)

Store Hours: Opening 5PM on Thursday night through 1:00 AM Friday morning, then will be open 8AM Friday morning through normal business hours

Online Deals: Typically Best Buy puts most of their deals online, and even offering Elite members a chance to purchase the deals early.

Extra: The Gamer’s Club Unlocked discount will be applied to this deal as well. That means the Starter Pack will be brought down to $39.99. If you are buying the figures and vehicles, the $5 is taken off your total first, then the 20% discount

FRED MEYER

  • 20% off Video Games, PC Games,and video game accessories (Figures $10.39, vehicles $11.99)
  • $39.99 — Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Pack

Store hours: Opening at 5AM Friday morning. These deals will only last until 1:00 PM

Online deals: Fred Meyer does not have any announced plans to place the deals online.

Extra: Nothing of note.

GAMESTOP

  • $9.99 — Skylanders SuperChargers single figures and vehicles
  • Buy 2 Get 3 free used Toys-To-Life figures (Disney Infinity, Skylanders, or amiibo)

Store hours: Opening 5AM on Friday morning through normal business hours. Deals will last, while supplies last, through Sunday.

Online Deals: GameStop should offer all the deals online, though no time has been announced yet

Extra: $10 a figure or vehicle is a great deal! Be sure to check out GameStop

MEIJER

  • $49.99 — Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Pack
  • Buy 1 Get 1 50% off Skylanders SuperChargers figures or vehicles ($10.49 each when you buy two)

Store hours: Opening at 6AM on Friday

Online deals: Deal will go live at 6AM on Friday

Extra: Pretty good deal on the figures, if they are priced at regular price at Meijer like I believe that they are.

SAM’S CLUB

  • $37.88 — Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Pack

Store hours: Opening at 7AM on Friday

Online deals: Deals will go live on their website at 01:01 AM EST on Thursday

Extra: Not the best, not the worst price for the Starter Pack. So definitely an option to keep an eye on if you are near a Sam’s Club and have a membership.

SHOPKO

  • $49.99 — Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Pack
  • Buy 2 Get 1 Free Disney Infinity & Skylanders Figures ($13.99 a piece, $9.33 a piece when buying three)

Extra: Not a bad price on the figures, if you need 3 of them.

TARGET

  • $34.99 — Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Pack
  • $11 — Skylanders SuperChargers figures

Store hours: Opening at 6PM on Thursday evening through normal business hours Friday evening

Online Deals: Target is promising to put deals online on its website. Of course, price comparison websites like Price also give out Target promo codes. Anyway, Target lists the Starter Pack deal as a ‘doorbuster’ so no guarantees that a specific deal will be online though. You can also find Target coupon deals online if you click here now to view them, there are many to choose from that you can browse and pick out.

Extra: Target has a great price on the Starter Pack, but not so great pricing on the figures themselves. Hopefully they put the Starter Pack online for those who want to take advantage of the deal, plus you’ll get free shipping!
