Every time the Today show’s ‘Jill’s Steals and Deals’ segment offers a discount on American Girl dolls, the frenzy begins, and folks can hardly access the American Girl dolls website. As of this writing, the page on American Girl, which offers up to 55 percent off of the American Girl special collections, is live. But the standard prompt to hurry while supplies last is noted. According to the American Girl doll website, the offer is valid through 8:30 a.m. Central Time on August 13, 2015 — or until the American Girl dolls on sale run out.
The Today Show website shows the mega deal page for the ‘Jill’s Steals and Deals’ American Girls dolls segment, and the video itself is so busy it will barely play for users.
“American Girl is offering their School Collection and Stable collection at a deep discount to TODAY viewers.”
It does reflect deals on the American Girl Doll & School Collection, American Girl Doll & Stable Collection, which normally retails at price at price of $401 to $415 — but has been marked down to a discount price of $180, representing 55 percent off with the discount code AUGTODAY.
If you can’t access the American Girl doll website via your laptop or computer, try accessing it through your mobile device, which some users say can work better, which is what some users report works well.
“Expect the site to be slow, very slow. Keep trying because I’ve had luck hours later. Also, I’ve noticed that sometimes mobile works better.”
Either way, the prompts to enter the offer code found on the Today Show website to enjoy the deal are apparent. Indeed, entering “AUGTODAY” without the quotes brought up a page that said there was strong interest in the offer, so a wait has developed. That same page urged users not to refresh or navigate away from the page on the American Girl website, because that would mean they’d have to start the process over.
It’s only an online deal offered to the American Girl doll customers — so buyers shouldn’t expect to walk into an American Girl retail store and use the Today Show deal.
As reported by the Inquisitr, previous Today show ‘Jill’s Steals and Deals’ segments that gave discount codes on American Girl dolls proved to be very popular. More of the ‘Jill’s Steals and Deals’ offers seen on the Today show can be found on the Today website. However, the American Girl doll sale will likely be the most popular, and hardest to gain.
