    I finally went shopping before noon on Black Friday this year and snagged a wireless Sony blu-ray player for $99. It was 40-50% off… not bad :)

    I lucked out on an auction for a “snoopy” x-mas figurine on eBay last year. It was around $25 in stores but the auction closed at $5. My mother loved it.

    I have to mention my free cell phone thanks to price matching! WalMart had it as a free phone with new/renewed contract but I got it at Best Buy with price matching. Our Best Buy has better customer service for phones than WalMart.

    I got a great deal on a Home Theatre System. It was a very nice Pioneer system to hook up to my new TV. Dolby 5.1 surround with upconverting DVDplayer. Produced a very nice sound. Originally close to 500$, I got it on special for less than 300$ and have loved it ever since.

    The best deal I ever got was at a USA Drug. I had recieved a $20 gift certificate, and bought one of their $35 dvd players for $15. It was a gift to my two girls and they were happy.

    Well, how about FREE! I enjoy dumpster diving (I know, weird right?), but you won’t believe the great stuff stores throw away. I found a really nice BIG wall clock with ornate metal work, there was absolutely nothing wrong with it and it’s still new! I gave it to my mom and she loves it! Thanks for this opportunity to win a Best Buy gift card or just anything at all!

    Three years ago I walked into a Best Buy to look at some flat screen TVs. I figured I could afford a new 32″ and so was going to compare what I saw there with the research I had done online. I was all set to grab the new Samsung LCD, when I saw that they had their floor models on sale. So what I actually walked away purchasing was a 50″ Sony LCD (floor model) which was 50% off. I also wasn’t charged tax since it was an “open box” item, and got the 4 year warranty for the cheaper price. This was by far the best deal I’ve come across in the last 10 years.

      Never knew tax isn’t to be charged on ‘open box’ items. Is it that way in all states? I know here in Pa I’ve bought ‘open box’ appliances, etc. and have been charged tax. Because I use it so often, I’d say my best deal would have to be the dvd player I got around 4 years ago for $50 during a black friday sale, but with a mail-in rebate, etc came to around $30. Because I used it so often, it is now on its last leg and hoping my next best deal will be on a blu ray player–that also plays dvd movies and beyond!

    Purchased one pillow/throw combo pack and a different throw that were marked $4.98/ ea. I was charged $10.00 a piece for them. Took them back to get my difference back and the $5.00 each for scanning error!! So I was able to pocket extra money and they were FREE!
