Re: Hastings

My fingers are crossed we get some kind of general coupon deal this year. So much of their sales are category dependent.

Re: Ebay

Meh to specific items. I really hoped they'd replicate the discounted eBay GCs via Paypal Digital Gifts from awhile back. No one would not have hopped on that.

Re: Best Buy (UPDATED)

Media prices are good. I'd rather have Samsung vs Staples' PNY or the Lexar or other lower-end brands sold at OM/OD.

However, BB's SanDisk Cruzer Glides have awful write speeds, and I'd actually take the PNY thumbdrives over those.

Kudos to hiker for the PDFs not on the main page.

My amazement at deals was more pronounced back when I registered, although I still am often taken aback by current events.

A decent 802.11n USB or PCMCIA/ExpressCard adapter, and a USB HD tuner. All else I can think of atm are wants, not needs.

I don't begrudge you guys taking part, but I dislike people who are there more for that experience than the prices of the items involved (and of course those who flip what they buy). To overhear people in line not knowing what they will buy, but just wanting to get in there and grab something first,...

Aside from cardiac symptoms (pushing the heart in cold weather is even worse than in summer), remember that these drinks contain supplements that make caffeine look like ambien. As such, they have even stronger diuretic properties. That means peeing even more often and sooner than if you had the sam...

I think this was already asked in another thread, but it's still that APEX DVD player awhile back that I got for $20. These days it's actually only worth that price...maybe less, but it was a killer deal at the time for a hackable multiregion player.

Nothing is set in stone until I have every adscan I need, and have verified them. It's ALWAYS possible I could sit a BF out. I'm not in it for the "adventure". ;)

I like G-Man's too. :)

I think mine was one of the Cool Beans characters that were used years ago in Powerpoint presentations.
