It may be a problem with supply from the manufacturer -- that's common on items in high demand. Maybe they didn't anticipate the sales volume... A lot of retailers are pairing down inventories and going to a JIT (just in time) system with a lot of their big vendors (non-stocking items like all the d...

Whoever wins should be assigned stores for pictures so that all the retailers are covered.

I'll do a pic sitting on those giant balls at Target. LOL! The Sears sign... Laying amidst the carnage at Wally World...

LOL!

Yea -- spoke with a friend in electronics at hubby's Sears store the other day. They won't be discounting the Wii for quite some time. I was able to get 10% off as an employee discount, but that just covers tax, basically. It was $240.74 and he said that's better than 95% of folks will get. I'm happ...

I'm late too -- alas, the business of making money has spoiled my fun once again. Ppppffffffoooooooooooie! I would be the coolest BF shopper in my area with a bfads.net t-shirt. Heck, I'm in the photo business. I could get a pic of me against my green screen in the studio lounging/laying and then ph...

It was always a reward for retired and current employees where you get 10 and 10 -- meaning 10% off, then 10% off of that. A $100 item would be $81. They would get a dozen "invitations" (to start) to hand out to their family and friends to come in and get 10% extra off and then they opened...

Feelin' Sunday? OMG, YES! It's snowing and cold and just one of THOSE KIND OF DAYS. You want to vegetate on the sofa and watch a movie you've seen 100 times because you'll be napping through most of it... LOL! Off to Friends & Family at Sears in just a bit. Going to get a Wii. 10% isn't a lot f...

I hope the forum doesn't die down completely until closer to Christmas. I'll still be looking for a few deals, so I hope folks will be around to keep me well informed!

Hmmmm -- I hope I didn't come off as classifying all young people with jobs as stupid or lazy. That's why I put my little disclaimer in there. There are a lot who are pretty mature and act it -- some of them on this board. I didn't want to paint those individuals with the same brush as the ones I've...

I don't do a theme per se, but usually have our eclectic mix of memory ornaments from childhood and the newer ones. Every ornament we have is significant in some way -- from the Basset Hound to the Drum Set and Craftsman ones to the pictures, musical notes & hearts (one for every Christmas givin...

Personally -- who am I to impose my beliefs? Sell your tickets...don't sell your tickets. I really don't care. I think trolling for tips on how to beat the system and how to "market" your services is just asking for rants and/or raves. If you choose not to believe that some municipalities ...

Already started wrapping and I'll continue to do a little bit at a time until the weekend after BF, then I'll be done. I store them in bins on the stairs of the attic (my little one is still little!). And I used to be a terrible snoop. One year I wanted a Walkman (yes, the original) so badly and I s...

I don't know why people are so passionate about arguing over something that so clearly depends on where you live/which stores you go to. Because with the elections over, we don't have anything else left to argue about. Ha. No, really, though, I've learned a lot about how different stores in differe...
