sigdiamond2000: I'm typing this from outside of a Best Buy in Ashtabula, Ohio, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies. I've been camped out here for four days now, singing songs and breaking bread with my fellow Black Friday Rangers. There's a sense of comraderie and fellowship on this sidewalk that I don't expect you cynics to understand.I'm 6th in line, so I'm pretty much gauranteed a 35" Vizio 750p flat screen for $159. That's a great price for a great product and if you don;t think it's worth it, you need to get over yourselves.
tcaptain: The worst example of this was last year when Zellers (in the US, KMart would be a close approximation) went out of business up here in Canuckistan. The "Final Liquidation - Everything MUST go! Up to 90% off" signs went up a week before the cut off day.My office was right next to a location so it was fairly easy to check out. I used to like their "Hunt Club" Khakis, I had bought some reasonably recently and knew their prices went from 34.99 regular to around 20 bucks on sale.The liquidation price? 69.99!!!! The regular price was marked at 187 dollars. I can tell you Zellers has NEVER farkin sold a pair of pants for almost 200 bucks.It was insane, even the video games...nothing less than 20 bucks with "regular" prices in excess of 80 to 90 dollars.How they go away with this shiat I will never know.
Ponzholio: I don't think I've ever purchased anything from Kohl's without the 30% off coupon AND Kohl's cash. I know full well it's a marketing gimmick but I'll be damned if I don't leave that place without some sort of self-accomplishment.
zulius: I'm not going to dig, but isn't there a whole psychology behind sale prices? Buying "regular price" vs a slightly marked up discounted price?
