Top tip dads.
Every year I go to my large local sainsburys where at 5 mins before opening a large queue of people with trolleys are always waiting for the doors to open. Stand near the front without a trolley and your just a regular jo waiting to get a paper and teabags and are safe from heckling from people telling you to get to the back.
Soon as the doors open grab 2 baskets and peg to the toys and get what you need. Baskets also mean you can squeeze through all the trolleys and madness.

If your getting on a bit also like me and don't trust not getting up go the night before and hide the toys you want in a inconspicuous department like motor cleaning and put the toys behind other stuff. If you get to the shop late you have your stash to fall back on as likely they will still be there.

They usually get some big branded toys in for half price, last year were some hot wheels sets, barbie and their own toy brand like rocking horses and trolleys with food. It's usually pretty good, depending on amazons prices. Most other brands are 33% off like my little pony, some lego and marvel toys. You can usually grab a bargain or two :)
#12
Does this happen online too? I can't remember...
#13
If you've got some small children, they do their wooden toys at stupid prices stupidly, really nice for little kids.
#14
hoping to pick up a couple of barbies/my little pony bits..10% staff discount helps!
#15
Anyone know what toys / discounts it'll be this year?

now why would anyone know that? Sainsburys make sure you can only get the prices on the day. just so you know. ALL toys are in the sale. yes ALL. Usually Sainsburys own branded toys are 75% off.

Great for Thomas mini's blind bags as they were half price last year - find out the codes of the one's you want and look at the back of the pack. Also got lots of Thomas toys / Bing / In the night garden. I went for store opening and had the place to myself they thought I was bonkers!

That's ok it's not like to sodding what'sapp will send people here to read it. Especially as this has no proof yet. So a mod will move it to misc. then as soon as a helper finds a newspaper add they will start a new deal that then gets 1milliondegrees heat and too bad original poster.

I'm having a memory blank when does it go live? Midnight from Tuesday - Wednesday or during the day Wednesday? I seem to remember people waiting up and going late in previous years?

I wouldn't trust sainsburys online if I were you. They're abysmal at fulfilling popular orders and oversell their stock.

Never have a problem finding bargains myself as I just look in inconspicuous departments like motoring stuff, dining, bedding etc (different place every year) and always find around a dozen half price booty items and sometimes a lot more. I do leave some things, but it is funny watching all the numpties trolley dashing to get bargains puffing and panting with their red faces and steam coming out of their ears because bloke 'A' got what blokette 'B' wanted.

Reminds me of that Schwarzenegger movie JATW.:D

Meanwhile, I just saunter up to the checkout with my bargains. LOL

I'd love to see the stasher's face one time when they see I have their bounty.

My guess is that it's a night-shift staff member, but I probably only get a fraction of the stash, but HoHoHo!

Luuuurve it every year and looking forward to it already! :D

Everything on that list seems to be the price they should be anyway. RRP these days is getting worse.
