Plus, coupon code "FF20DEC" takes an extra 20% off all orders, or coupon code "MITTENS" takes an extra 25% off orders of $100 or more. Even better, get $10 Kohl's Cash for every $50 you spend. Shipping adds $5.95 or get free shipping on orders of $50 or more. Although not as strong as our mention from three weeks ago, when we saw combined added discounts of 35% off, it's still one of the largest toy sales we've seen from Kohl's this season, yielding a number of price lows. Deal ends December 9. A couple of best bets, with prices after coupon and each including $10 in Kohl's Cash:
Walmart offers preorders of the Skylanders Swap Force Jolly Bumble Blast for $9.99 with free shipping.

The expected release date is December 15.

Also available is the Thor Mr. Potato Head for $13.99 with free shipping via the above coupon code. That's another price low, this time by $2. You should probably get both and mix up their pieces, because oh man, how annoyed would Tony Stark be if you made him wear Thor's helmet?
Walmart offers the Baby Einstein 9-Piece Essentials Bundle, model no. 52139-12, for $20. Choose Site-to-Store pickup to avoid the $4.97 shipping fee.

Even better, all items are eligible for free shipping.
