Went to Toys R Us at lunch to grab some games. There are quite a few on sale, and you can combine the sale price with printable coupons, and a Toys R Us / Hasbro rebate to get some pretty inexpensive board games. Awesome.
I get in the checkout lane behind this lady who is telling the clerk she didn't get her 50% off. He asks if she got the Star Wars version of the Legos, she said yes, he consults a sign that says Star Wars is excluded from the sale. He asks if she needs a refund. She gets huffy and says yes but she doesn't have the time right now, and then stomps away, scowling.
Now... when I was perusing the games aisle, there were signs everywhere, and they told you what was on sale, what was excluded, and any associated rebates. If you pay attention to the signs, you don't buy the wrong thing. Pretty sure there would have been a sign by the Legos too. But I didn't much care. She was out of my way and I was moving through the line. I paid $21 for Clue, Twister and Battleship, I will get $6 in rebates from Hasbro, and I got a $5 gift card. So basically $3.33 a game. Me likey.
Also, if you like Crocs, you can get 25% off and free shipping. I've always wanted to try them out, so I grabbed a pair for $11. Worst case scenario I have gardening shoes, but everyone seems to love them so maybe I will too.
Also, I hate Walmart, but they are having a pretty cool beauty sale. I got some fancy schmancy Neutrogena Clinical stuff ($35.97), and some fancy schmancy Aveeno Ageless Vitality ($39.95), both together cost me about $15 (and free shipping, sometimes Walmart doesn't suck).
Southernsavers.com is really posting some great deals this week!
Random thing of the day: I was half-listening to a conversation between two of my co-workers and I heard the following sentence fragment... make of it what you will... "you’re my customer, and I’m going to service you." Bwahahaha
