If you’re planning to purchase an American Girl doll or any outfits, accessories, or other AG items anytime soon, head to Costco NOW to get an incredibly rare discount: Get (4) $25 American Girl gift cards for $79.99. This is a 20% discount, which I’ve never seen before!
You will get (4) $25 gift cards that can be used at AmericanGirl.com or any American Girl flagship store (there’s one opening in Portland right now). The four cards come in a nice American Girl envelope. You can use multiple gift cards on one transaction, so you’d pay about $100 for a $120 doll ($79.99 at Costco for the $100 in gift cards + $20 cash at the time of doll purchase).
I found the cards in the Christmas toy section NOT the usual gift card section at Costco. There were a handful of other American Girl toys, books, and mini dolls available (you cannot use these gift cards to purchase an American Girl item at Costco, only on the AG website or an AG retail store).
I strongly suspect the gift cards will sell out very, very quickly. You need to go to Costco THIS WEEK to get this deal.
Obviously, I cannot guarantee that your local Costco will carry this deal. I found the display at the NE Portland Costco.
