Enter the My American Girl Doll Drawing for your chance to win a doll from American Girl & Borders. According to the official rules, 100 dolls will be awarded in a random drawing. Limit one entry per person/email address and you must enter by 9/27/10. You must enter for your child, as all entrants must be 18+ to enter.

I don’t usually post sweepstakes deals, but I know that we have a decent-sized coalition of American Girl fans in our readership. Plus, with so many prizes being awarded and there being such a short entry period (less than three weeks from start to finish), your chances of winning are slightly better than usual.

Looking for ways to save on American Girl dolls, clothing, accessories, furniture, etc.? Here are some tips that readers have left in the comments on previous posts:

— There is an American Girl distribution center in Madison, WI and the Kenosha/Milwaukee/Racine, WI area. Check Craigslist in these areas, as employees get a discount and may be looking to resell the dolls for a small profit.

— Craigslist in general is a good place to look for gently-used American Girl products.

— The warehouse in Madison, WI has a benefit sale each year in July to help out the Madison Children’s Museum. Tickets need to be ordered in late May/early June. All dolls are priced at less than $50 and cheap furniture is available for sale, too.

— The American Girl outlet store in Oshkosh, WI has a clothing sale in June.

— Michaels carries some American Girl crafts.

— And for our Minnesota readers, you can always check the American Girl store in the Mall of America to see if they have any specials, too.

Your turn: Where else do you find good deals on American Girl products? (Also, please let us know if you win!)

    Thank you, my daughter wants one so bad and they are just way to spendy, her bday and Christmas are both in Dec. So I really hope we win! (I'll need lots of luck!)

    We were just at the Oshkosh outlet. In addition to their annual sale as posted above, they carry some great girl & doll clothes. Those beautiful $100 dresses in the Christmas catalog? They were $25. The outlet is right across from the EAA Museum on 41 (or is it 44?)

    The holiday craft sales at various churches in Nov always have homemade AG clothes & sometimes furniture.

    DD & I also buy patterns when Joann has their sales (holidays like Labor Day always feature $1 or $2 patterns by various companies) and make our own unique clothes. You don't have to be an expert seamstress — it's just for a doll. I've learned a lot of skills & DD is also learning to sew too.

    Lots of free AG doll knit/crochet patterns on the web. Just google it!

    Target has a set of dolls that aren't the same quality, but their clothes fit just fine!

    Hi there,

    I live in Madison, and I work in Middleton (where the annual American Girl sale is held). I went to the sale this year. The prices are actually a little higher than you listed… historical dolls are $65 (customers are limited to one historical doll), Just Like You are $65 (limit of 3), Bitty Baby and Twin dolls are $30 (limit of 1), and Girl of the Year dolls are $95.

    There is limited availability (some dolls aren't available at all). Due to new safety codes, a VERY small amount of furniture and accessories are sold. Lots of books are available. I bought a Kit doll, one outfit, a set of earrings, and a couple of books. These will be great Christmas presents!

    The prices have definitely gone up since then, and the selection has gone way down. It's still a good deal if you're flexible on which doll you get. And the prices are listed ahead of time, so you know what you're getting into!

    I'll agree with the above comments. The dolls were $65 this year on the first day of the sale. The second day they were $37.50, but it was absolutely NUTS. The sale is a great way to have a fun weekend in Madison, but watch out for all of the crazy people on Sunday.

    I am an avid yard saler and have found American Girl Dolls and accessories there. I never haggle, I just pay the asking price, and everyone is happy!

    The American Girl website often has weekly specials called "Spotlight Savings." Although these same products are not marked down at the stores, they will match the price, if asked. Also, if a product is out-of-stock at the American Girl store, they can order it for you and ship it for free. Last year, on the Monday after Thanksgiving, there was a great online sale. I'm hoping for a similar sale this year!

    I remember getting my first American girl doll when I was 11 or 12. At the time there were only 3 of them and last fall my doll was discontinued. Well my daughter is 12 and would really like one so it would be awesome to win one. My mom bought the dress pattern when I was a kid and she made many dresses for our American girl dolls(3 sisters). She cut up a few old brides made dresses and even her wedding dress to make some fancier ones.

    I just got my mail and to my shock I WON! I WON! I WON! I can not believe it! I am soooo excited! I said before I would need lots of luck and I really didn't think I would win, I have 4 daughters, one who has been begging for an American Girl doll. This could not of happened at a more perfect time either, I am no longer working and am owed back pay (hopefully I will see that) This will be a perfect Birthday gift! Thank you so much for posting this!!!!!!!!
