Eleven weeks to Christmas! Now could be the best time to look for the best toys for Christmas 2019. Last year, Black Friday was quite honestly naff, the deals were inflated and big stores opted out. However, the supermarkets went big with their instore HALF PRICE TOY SALE promotions, Sainsbury’s in particular. So, when is the Sainsbury’s HALF PRICE TOY SALE 2019?
Looking back to last year, we get an idea that they follow Asda and Tesco toy sales. In 2018, the Sainsbury’s Toy Sale started on 18th October and was huge. Stores were rammed and true bargains were had. Hopefully, this year will be the same and it’s obviously imminent due to the towers of toys I’ve seen being stacked up high in the aisles.
I’ve had no official word from Sainsbury’s so far. However, I’m expecting the likes of LEGO, Chad Valley, PlayDoh, LOL Surprise and more to be included again.
So, When is the Sainsburys toy sale?
The internet is buzzing with suggested dates. Most of these rumours concur with labelling now appearing on the huge stacks of toys in stores. The labels say “Hold price until 16th October” or “Sainsbury’s Event 16th October”. Therefore I’m confident the Sainsbury’s 50% OFF TOY SALE start date will be 16th October 2019. I also suspect it will be ending on 22nd October 2019.
In 2018, the Sainsbury’s 50% off TOY SALE included many wanted brands and items ahead of the Christmas rushes. In fact, they matched, in most cases, the deals found later on Black Friday. The brands included LEGO, PeppaPig, DUPLO, Barbie, NERF, Hot Wheels, Paw Patrol, and Vtech Toot Toot.
Judging by the number of toys included last year, and the competing toy sale running at Tesco and Asda, I expect around 200-400 products to be included. Check out the toys they have instore in the days running up to the Sainsbury’s HALF PRICE TOY SALE and them look them up on Amazon for a rough guide to value. Alternatively, go a step further and use the CamelCamel website for full Amazon price history for any item.
I should point out again, there’s no confirmed date for the Sainsbury’s HALF PRICE TOY SALE 2019, But the clues point towards October 16th 2019!
Consider the Argos Toy Sale
Similarly, Sainsbury’s cousin will likely have their sale. Argos tends to run it’s Argos Toy Sale in line with Sainsbury’s and Nectar points can be used, collected at both. Check out the New Nectar app for bonus points when you buy toys in the 50% toy sales.
Tesco Half Price Toy Sale and Asda Toy Sale Rollback
The Asda Big Toy Rollback is live at the time of writing this article and gives another possible toy bargain opportunity. Asda has often been the best over the last few years for both Lego deals and PlayDoy big tub deals.
