were their suits on sale too (classic stuff) or just casual street clothing?

I had a movie streaming in my car through my tablet to keep us entertained for a while, and the weather was decent enough that we didn't have to worry about getting wet. However, if there weren't specific things we wanted, we wouldn't have gone.

Basically it boils down to whether you want to stand in the cold for a few hours to save potentially hundreds of dollars, or if sleep and convenience is more important.
Lesson learnt the hard way.

I found the NCIX link through RFD on the 24th, ordered everything I wanted for about the prices I was hoping for, and slept in on Boxing Day. I've gone out there in the past, never again.

I'm currently using it as a computer monitor. And I agree with you on the glare! But it's still a good deal, so I can't really complain...

Now I'm trying to figure if it'll work with my two 22" monitors.

you better refund it. those monitors are shit. you literally get what you pay for. google the reviews and everyone says they break within half a year or less. ilvtofu bought one for his gf for black friday and it stopped working within a month.

NCIX pretty much dropped an additional $10 off their regular "weekly sale" prices.

But I think those prices are pretty much as cheap as they will get.
Maybe go to Memory Express and pricematch to get the PM discount.

Went to Downtown seattle on dec. 26. The sales are pretty decent. I would prolly say boxing day at some stores here would have a better deal but then have to deal with the crowd and parking.

Nordstrom has a sale going on, mainly for men. There were plenty of items on sale. Designer names were 50% or more. Other selected clothing were around 40%-70% off. Store was very clean and always cleaned up the dressing rooms and immediately put clothes back and organized them.

Macy's has an awesome sale for all winter clothes. I would recommend checking out macy first then nordstrom. 50%-80% on selected clothing

Victoria secret for the girls had buy one get on 50% off all bras. Some panties/thongs where on sale only thing I remember there the 100% cotton panties/thongs were buy 5 for 23$ or something like that.

Stussy was a disappointment. No sale and didn't really have anything I liked.

Not entirely sure of the other stores. I believe Old Navy in the states has the same sale as the one Canada.


Then when to check out bellevue sqaure mall. WAY BETTER then downtown seattle. More selection and more sales. Didn't have time to check the entire mall as we spent most of out time in downtown. Zumiez had a pretty sweet sale but dont remeber cause all the size I wanted were gone.

The Zebra club had the entire store at 50% off. Jeans, shoes, watches, jackets all 50% off. When we got there store was a complete mess but took the time and found Nudies for half the price.

Aritzia has an ok sale. Prolly the same price what you get at boxing day in canada.

Other then that what I can recall. I would recommend if anyone heading down the states go to bellevue mall first and hit up macy's. Idk if the're going to restock or keep up with the sale.

Also did anyone hit up Dutil? How was the sale there. I check there site bought bringing there flyer you 10$ off and other stuff which needed to line up and you get a deal of some sort.

I went yesterday at like 1pm when it was the most packed but to be honest it wasn't too bad for me. I didn't park at the mall though, I went 3 blocks east and parked in the residential for free with no time limit and walked there. Didn't want to spend 1hr finding parking.
