UPDATE:  Even though it says all four of them are In Stock, it looks like only the unicorn one is still available.

If you’ve been thinking about getting one of those Pillow Pets, here is a good sale on them.  Collections Etc. com has them for $13.97, but when you use the promo code 3JY2D1 at checkout, the price goes down to $11.17 with no shipping costs (just a $1.25 processing fee – whatever the heck that is…)  But regardless, it goes down to $12.42 including the shipping. (These same pets are $15 – $20 at Amazon.)

Click here to check out the Pillow Pets sale at Collections Etc.  Choose from the Ladybug, Bumblebee, Dog or Unicorn.

They even have a shipping map you can use to figure out when you need to order if you want it by Christmas.

Thanks to Moms By Heart for the tip.
