Holiday gift alert: Zhu Zhu Pets at TRU; iPod/iTunes deal at Walmart
As the clock starts to tick down to a precious few days before Christmas, shopping for what you know you want becomes more essential. So here is a bit of news to pass along. Toys R Us says on its Facebook page that Zhu Zhu Pets, the hot holiday toy this season, are arriving daily at stores. You can only get one per household but since these little battery-operated hamsters have been so hard to find, it might be worth checking out. As this St. Petersburg Times story says, they really want to just get you in the store so you will shop for other things as well. As a prime example, TRU says that it has tons of other popular toys back in stock, including NERF products, LEGO sets and nearly 200,000 Wii and Xbox 360 consoles.
Another deal I saw online but that is only available in stores is at Walmart on Saturday. You can get an 8GB iPod Nano for $145 which isn't a big deal. But with that you get a free $50 iTunes gift card. That sounds like a really good deal to be able to supply the tunes or video for the Nano. The deal starts at 8 a.m. Saturday. Happy shopping!
