Scored a Free American Girl Addy Mini Doll #BlackFriday

Ended up riding along to the American Girl® Store - Atlanta (in Alpharetta) on Black Friday with my sister. There were several Doorbusters available for in-store AG shoppers including a couple AG Doll Craft Books for $5.00 (regularly $14.99) and select AG Mini Dolls and Books box sets for $10.00 (regularly $24.99).

As I had saved my $10.00 AG Rewards Certificate for use during the holiday season, I used it to score a totally free American Girl® Addy Mini Doll and Book box set. (Addy has a special place in my heart as she was the American Girl® Doll that I most wanted back when the brand first debuted in 1986. So getting a free mini version was a definite win.) I also had an AG Rewards Birthday Code, so got a Silver Tier Rewards Birthday Bracelet as a second freebie. (The mini doll is for me, the bracelet for my niece who recently had a birthday.) Not a bad outing altogether!

Ordered Our Generation Let It Roll - Retro Bowling Accessories Set @target #ogdolls #18inchdolls #toys #holidayseason

Our Generation Let It Roll - Retro Bowling Accessories Set
Our Generation Let It Roll - Retro Bowling Accessories Set
After saving up enough rewards GC monies to purchase two Our Generation 18" Boy Dolls at regular prices, I was able to get them both via savings deals. As such, I ended up with a remaining balance on my Target GC account of approximately $12.64. I figured I might be able to score another OG item, if I played my deal cards right. So I waited...

On Sunday past, Target announced a bonus mobile coupon promotion (text a code, get a coupon to "Save 25% on one toy"). By combining this savings with my remaining GC balance, I knew I could get something, probably a decent accessories set. I asked my doll collecting sister for OG item suggestions in the $13 price range and she said that several OG Accessories Sets were currently on sale at Target. She said that she would go back (over her notes) and offer her opinion in a day or two.

This morning she texted regarding an OG Retro Bowling Accessories Set called "Let It Roll". She said it was on sale for $14.99 and I should take a look. I recalled seeing a picture of this set on Target's website a few weeks ago when I was searching for new release OG items for the Fall. I remembered thinking the OG set was cute at the time. I did a few quick calculations in my head and told my sister that I'd order the set and have it shipped to our local Target store for pickup. By the way, bowling is apparently the IT sport in 18" Dollworld right now. (American Girl® is also promoting several bowling themed toys.)

After the 25% Off coupon and my Target Circle cashback balance credit, this set only cost $11.90 which means that I still have 74-cents in my GC account ha!

This OG Bowling Set should make a fun addition to our playspace. (My sister and I often share & loan each other toys, because why not? There's not much overlap to our collections, because we often coordinate our purchasing efforts to insure this doesn't happen.) My order is projected to arrive in the middle of next week.
