Apple annually puts their products on sale this weekend. Future Shop/Best Buy, Simply Computing have been getting $100 credits for their laptops for a few years now. I pick up one almost every year. It's cheaper than staff discount.

actually nope..they had the old stuff out before the store closed at 5pm to prepare for the midnight madness sale..
sizes were lacking though..mostly Large and XL left

HOWEVER..managed to pick up the last black small of the 2010 series that Vansterdam posted (cos they were already doing the 40% off before 6 for the older stuff)

so..it went like this..bought 2 jackets..
1. $50 -> on sale to $30 -> 40% off to $18
2. $50 -> 40% off to $30
so total $48 - 10% off spc = $43.20 - $10 off $40 coupon = $33.20 + tax...

uber happy!

I just bought a 60" Sharp AQUOS LCD TV for US$799 from US Bestbuy site.

Sharp - AQUOS / 60" Class / LCD / 1080p / 120Hz / HDTV - LC60E79U

Surprised they actually support accepting Canadian credit cards.
Now that it is in store only, I wonder if they will take rain checks?

How did you get your Canadian credit card to work? What kind?

I tried using both an MBNA and a CIBC Mastercard along with the Houston, TX billing address they specified on the site but got an email that my order was cancelled because my information couldn't be verified.

Did you call your CC saying you'll make a big purchase?

I know that I need to call MBNA if I'm making an unusually large purchase otherwise they'll just auto block it.

On top, you should also add that Houston, TX address as an alternate address to your account. So if they do the verification you'll be set.

I used an MBNA card... didn't have any problems with the process whatsoever.

Went down to Bellingham on Saturday, and bought a whole lot of stuff, but mostly Christmas presents and not too much in the way of incredible deals.

Did randomly stumble upon a pair of Asics Gel Frantic 5 sneaks at Foot Locker for $29.99 though, down from $85. Last pair in the store, and was in my size.

Target had a bunch of pretty decent deals... better than WalMart, I thought.
