clothes and what not....

everything is taxed here except papers and possibly prescriptions...im not sure on that one. I can't imagine not paying sales tax on clothes in particular, it was one of the things that forever confused me out East. Why on earth would you not tax clothing and then tax their homes and properties at ...

NYers get screwed...some more

sales tax in NY is among the highest at 8.735% (i think in DC it's 10% -- and think they don't even have a representation in congress) .... the state had lifted it on clothes but from the OP it looks like it is back to raising revenue on the backs of the jane and joe smoe. i get taxation as a way to...

speaking of ccity .... i am assuming they will have a sale

Yes Dissapointing indeed. Best Buy was all-about Black Friday.. Nothing really sticks out this year... Not even any good games. You could always go to Circuit City. ....it will be interesting to see what ccity offers this year. (yes i know ccity filed bankruptcy at the top of the year but they were...

for the most part my bfridays have been quiet (save for line cutters et al.) but last year i was at best buy and the ccity was across the way....bbuy gave out tickets early and managed the demand while ccity decided not to give out tickets and the demand was not managed well by the store. about 20 m...

Magic 8 Black Friday Ball....Tell Me

I am predicting this year computers will be around last years pricing for slightly better (more memory/larger hdd) upgrades. Most of the computers for BF will contain AMD chipsets as they just upgraded their chipsets making the older (AMD Turion 64, Support Now Dual Core, etc) chipsets more reasonab...

Trade Secrets....Seriously!!???

guitarist...the Coke analogy isn't apropos. Coke's secret recipe is a secret because they never plan to let others know it....the bf ads are designed as a sales tool for the public. i've heard the trade secret thing before but seriously what is the trade secret: how the pictures are laid out in the ...

To CCity or not to CCity...that is the question

i've done bbuy the last two years and the year before I did CCity (or whatever year there was a 99 laptop). overall bbuy's appeal for me has been the what-you-see-is-what-you-get pricing (no MIR, no store rebate coupons, etc.). the year of the 99 laptop the deal required several MIR/store rebates a ...

I told my husband I was a DSLR this year, Canon or Nikon.. I've ruined my digi by taking it to the beach. Any tips on where a good place to buy?

C & D sux ... ballz

you would think stores would like the buzz (especially given the economic situation) .... but because they are soooo worried about getting scooped by the competition they hate the buzz. last year i stayed away from walmart because of their aggressive C & D stance, this year i am unsure what i wo...
