I’m running late again. Good news about next week though (for all of you anyway). I work in the evening so ads will be out by 2:00pm next week.
I stoped by two compusa’s on the way hope from work. What a giant waste of time and gas!!! The blowout clearance items that I was looking for were all gone, even though they show in stock on thier web site (it shows lists for each store). so I checked to see if they had anything else on the list out of curosity. Of course they had some of the stuff that was on clearance for full retail or higher which was a lot of the list (some blowout). Anything that was cheap was gone. So I went to another compusa (one that is closing and has everything a percent off). As others have observed (there’s some talk about it on fat wallet), the stores that are closing have jacked prices up higher than stores that are not closing at least on some items. Several items had the price tag removed (I guess they were behind on printing new shelf labels with bogus higher prices). There were just a few items cheap like a few cold cathods and a few round cables, stuff that had been on manager special for a long time (old stuff they were trying to get rid of). all other computer stuff was top dollar!!! I checked when I got home and the clearance stuff from the first store still all showed in stock.
Anyway, rant over (what a bunch of bullcrap artists).
I got all the ads this week so here they are
on a side note, starting wensday, august 30, big lots will have a refurbished hp psc 1510 all in one printer for 69.99 good sunday and labor day only.
Also through the whole ad, a net gear 54Mbps router for 29.99, and a magnavox refurbished lcd tv 15 inch for 199.99. No model is listed but it looks like this one
I have no idea if these are good deals but they usally don’t get stuff like this so I though I would post it. Decide for yourself. Personally, 15 inch is way too small to be of any good. Also, being a clearance store, if they are a good deal, they might sell out first day so It might not be a bad idea to go early. Though they don’t always volenteer the info, if they are out on the first day, you can get 20% off your entire purchase with an ad guarentee. Be carefull though. Biglots has jacked thier prices up substantially since they got a new ceo and 20% off may still not be a good deal (though there are always a few good deals among the over priced crap).
Just a thought. If they still have the electronics but have sold out of anything else you could get 20% off the electronics. A good item to check are the purple fold away carts for 9$ as they always sell out of those very fast. This is only good the first day and I am assuming the ad guarentee is a national thing (they do it here and there may be signs about it at the check stands).
