Bought the Eddie Bauer Microtherm Stormdown Jacket today at 50% off.

This same one:
Men's Custom Microtherm Jacket | Eddie Bauer

That's $279 and then 50% off.

I needed a new thinner jacket, and wanted to get the jacket for such a long time, and now, it's 50% off.

The colours they had in stock were similar to what I envisioned, so it is a very good deal.

All Eddie Bauer stores are 50% off the entire store.

Not sure if the sale will still be ongoing (phone in to check).

Yeah I noticed that too when I went to the Broadway one. Luckily I had checked the price of what I wanted before I went in because unluckily, it was sold out online.

Nevermind that, shitload of Americans came up today. I was at Peace Arch crossing (southbound) and it was hella busier than usual. One asian family in front of me had so much shit in the trunk and cabin that when the granny opened up the back door, shit started falling out. With the low CAD and Boxing Day Sales, it was a really good opportunity for our cousins down south to save even more.

I went to Imperial Hobbies in Richmond for their 25% off sale, bought some things... their new store on Russ Baker Way is so much nicer and easier to navigate. They seem much happier there.

Went to Best Buy on Marine/Ontario at around 9:30 AM, busy but easy to find parking and only lined up for about 2 mins to pay, everything went better than expected. Got the 43" 4K LG, originally looked at the 48" 4K Samsung for only $100 more but the LG definitely looked better from the sides. I was pretty tempted to line up for that $250 43" toshiba doorcrasher though.

Went to RC in the afternoon, quite the shit show. My car's trip computer average fuel economy went up quite a bit circling the parking lot lol, took about 20 mins to find a spot. Got a pair of Levis jeans from the bay but I realized I just don't have the patience to shop for clothes anymore.

I did most of my shopping on Christmas Eve/Christmas at night. Many of these stores let you return stuff you purchased online in store which is what I think I'm gonna do with some of the stuff I got

Wonder if anyone try to cut in at Holt Renfrew. I still remember last year (of the year before). A bunch of fobs (mostly Chinese, Koreans and some Japanese) try to cut in front of everyone and it was put on youtube. Police have to come in to maintain order. All just for some last season crap.

I stand by what I said lol

I enjoyed the series. I have the damn games on PS3 and I'm pretty sure I've platinum'd at least one of them

To me remastering games that aren't even that old and has nothing wrong with it screams laziness.
Goddamn Xbox gets it. They actually bundle games that people haven't played before. I just haven't gotten that desperate enough to buy an Xbox yet.

Ps4 will bundle you recycled ps3 games...the kicker is they're throwing you a bonus of gow3. Which every living ps gamer mustve fucking played at least 20 times.

Great games yeah, but caman, gimme something new.

Buying a Note 5 in a couple weeks, this seems like a good deal so I picked it up. Normally $70 on for $40.

Uncharted came out in 2007. I have a feeling part of why the XB1 comes with different style bundled games (although there is the GoW bundle) is due to the backwards compatibility, and knowing that they haven't got jack shit for exclusives so they need to try to trick people into buying one over a PS4.

I've finally hooked up the Samsung Curved 8.1 channel sound bar w/ 7" sub, the only cables I've hooked up are the AC power cables. Fits flush with the tv width wise. Easy to connect to the device via TV connect, Bluetooth, HDMI and USB.

I've always been hesitant when it comes to a sound bar, but this changes my perspective on them. Very good quality crisp sound and bass as well. I must say, it's one of the best things I've purchased this year that's for sure.

Why not get a note 5 now? Get your carrier to match best buy price which is $149.99 on 2 years. That's half the advertise prices of the carriers

I don't think Xbox gets it at all. They never got their pricing right from the start and they kept bundling Kinect with their systems. I'd choose a remastered game than that POS Kinect.

The Xbox One is being outsold globally by the PS4 at a 2:1 ratio and nobody outside of North America seems to care about Xbox. Japan is one of the most important video game markets and they are getting slaughtered by Sony and Nintendo.

I went to gastown and downtown, gastown was surprisingly quiet compared to prior years - except stussy. I go every year but didn't bother this year, line was probably at least an hour and a half. downtown was busy at the usual spots (pc, granville robson) but just a little busier than a normal weekend I'd say

got a pair of bose headphones for 69 from 159, oakley canopy goggles for 20% off and an underarmour base layer for the mountains at 30% off. was trying to find an arcteryx jacket too but didn't have much luck with size or selection everywhere I went

that's still pretty new to me lol
it's probably more because of the exclusives...plus xblive experience sucks massive donkey cock
can't fault them for trying tho
$390 for a 1tb console with 5 good, new games...that's a pretty good effort.

still, it'd be nice if ps4 bundled with newer games instead of flooding the market with Uncharted and TLOU bundles. Great games, that's undisputed but surely the PS4 can offer more than just remastered ps3 games.
