On Monday, Toys R Us announced a Christmas in July sale, which begins on July 18th. The company said it would offer discounts of 20 percent to 50 percent on many items and toss in a $20 gift card free with the purchase of a Wii Fit Plus with balance board.
From Sunday, July 18 through Saturday, July 24, customers can find dozens of items at prices usually reserved for the holiday shopping season at Toys”R”Us stores nationwide and online at Toysrus.com. The company will alert customers to additional savings by sending surprise deals of the day throughout the week, as well as bonus deals valid on Friday, July 23 and Saturday, July 24. Toysrus.com will also offer free shipping all week and hold a Cyber Monday sale on July 26 with additional, exclusive deals.
And, if the deals aren’t enough to get customers “dreaming of a white Christmas,” they can use Christmas in July as an opportunity to begin planning ahead for the holiday shopping season by signing up for the new Toys”R”Us Christmas Savers Club. This program allows shoppers to set aside money with the added benefit of earning a bonus, simply for saving early.
In addition, to ensure a place on Santa’s “nice” list, customers can get a jumpstart on bringing smiles to America’s neediest children on Christmas morning by donating to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.

Christmas Savers Club – Presenting Smart Shoppers With a Rewarding Way to Save for the Holidays
To help families prepare for their holiday shopping and provide an alternate way to budget for gift-giving, Toys”R”Us recently launched the Christmas Savers Club, a program that allows shoppers to begin setting aside money with the added benefit of earning a bonus, simply for saving early. Customers can start growing their holiday savings by requesting a Christmas Savers Club Card at any Toys”R”Us store throughout the country.****
Those who sign up for the Christmas Savers Club between now and October 16, 2010, will receive a three percent bonus based on the total funds they save. Customers can save up to $2,500 per card, which means the most aggressive savers can earn up to $75 on top of the money they load on their cards. The bonus savings can be enough to buy any one of hundreds of big gifts that will “wow” little ones this holiday season. To maximize the amount of time to save for holiday purchases, the bonus will be added to shoppers’ cards on October 31, 2010, for the kickoff of the holiday shopping season.*****
