Amazon cuts up to 76% off a selection of toys during its End of Summer Toy Sale. Amazon Prime members bag free shipping; otherwise, shipping starts at $4.59. (Orders of $25 or more also qualify for free shipping, although select toys may qualify for free shipping without the minimum requirements.) After discounts, prices are as low as $3.25. Many items are at or near the lowest total price we could find.

A best bet is the Mattel Puppy Tweets Collar (pictured) for $7.20 with free shipping. (Prime is not required to get free shipping on this item.) That's the lowest total price we could find by $8. It comes pre-loaded with over 500 phrases, and lets you connect with your pet over the Internet.

Amazon Prime membership is $79 per year; however, Prime is free for college students for six months, and free for parents and caregivers for three months.
