One of our amiibo picks is the adorable Green Mega Yarn Yoshi for $39.99. When you use the coupon (from above) the price drops to only $31.99 shipped. That’s $8 off the regular sale price and the lowest we’ve seen for it. Made with actual yarn, this Yoshi “is always up for adventure…there are so many mysteries to explore and new things to find! Yoshis can flutter their legs to jump incredibly high and can use their long tongue to snare enemies or other handy things.” 

You can also get The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD with Wolf Link amiibo for only $48 shipped after you apply the (above) coupon. That’s $12 off the regular sale price and matching the lowest we’ve seen for it. “Fight through labyrinthine dungeons, survive puzzling traps, and meet a cast of characters you’ll never forget in this legendary Zelda adventure”
