OMG What a deal!!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
So we went in to Office Depot today to try to find stylus thingies for Earl's Palm Treo (they didn't have them) and they were having a Red Tag event. OK, cool - we picked up some Sharpie Minis and Post-its and little stuff for just a few bucks. But as she was ringing us up, Earl asked how long the sale was for - just today. Oh, but since it was the last day, everything was 50% off of the lowest marked price.

Oh really??? They had a couple of laser printers still in the box already marked down to a steal. So, Earl asked, if a printer was marked at $99, it would only be $50? Yup.

So we went to look (Earl has wanted a laser printer for ages, which I always said no to because they are just too expensive), and there was an HP 1600 marked down to $99 from $299, but that included a $150 mail in rebate. So I made him ask again - will this really be $50, or will it be $200 now with the mail in rebate? Well holy cow - it's really $50!!!

So we got a CURRENT model of a color laser printer, still being sold at Office Max and online for $299, for just $50.00!!!!! We're still pinching ourselves to see if we're dreaming, but since we printed test pages already I don't think we are.

Nah, they didn't give us the rebate. But that's OK - that kind of deal was good enough. I almost feel guilty about it - it's almost like stealing!

That's awesome! I've always wanted a laser printer but decided against one in the end because the replacement cartridges are really expensive and I didn't think I'd be able to purchase new ones when the time came. So I have a HP all in one ink jet.

That's a fantastic deal, Heidi! You'll love the laser printer. The cartridges are very expensive, but really last forever.

My DH would be all over that, trying to get even more of a deal!

Great deal, Heidi! Don't ya just love getting a bargain?
Have you seen those VW ads where the guy is guilty because he paid so little for the car that he felt he was stealing?
