They hardly ever list that kind of stuff in the ads.
It makes me sad.

If you don't mind making two trips, what I do is go a week early and buy what I want at retail price and then go back when it's on sale and they adjust the price + 10% of the difference. It's not much, but soon it will add up.

Proof from their website:
"If you see a lower advertised price (including our own sale prices) within 30 days of your purchase, we'll refund 110% of the difference."

Just pray that these listings are 100% accurate, because if you go and pay retail, then it does not go on sale, and you've already opened it you'll be screwed.

Yes.... Please pray that I'm accurate and that I have the actual ads in my hand when I post.

Please pray that I can continue to have the time to post these puppies in great detail each and every week.

You make it sound like I get my information from a friend of a friend whose aunt told him two years ago.

I'm not here to dupe people John Slider. I take great pride in what I do here and I stand by my accuracy. Now my spelling is another matter.

In fact, if you want a copy of this ad that I posted, drop me your mailing address and I'll mail it to you. Then you can verify my accuracy.

Holding someone else responsible for your price matching shceme gone wrong, is moronic. BTW - no need to "pray" for accuracy. The ads are always on the money.

speedy1961,

I'm truly sorry that I have offended you, if you notice I just joined today and still have fewer than five posts. I'm new to this board and I honestly meant no harm when making my post earlier. I do feel like shit after reading my reply, that statement did come off in the wrong way and I am sorry. Well, I guess I kind of blew my good first impression on this forum, eh? Haha.

The real reason I posted what I did earlier is because not too long ago I took what someone else said in confidence. That was that they had an early copy of a Target ad and said Deadwood seasons 1 & 2 would be on sale for 49.99 the following week. Being as gullible as I am I went and purchased them at an outrageous 79.99 each (I donít know why I canít wait for the sale, I just need to have the DVDs as soon as possible). Like I touched on before, I was screwed thanks to one asshole, which he claimed to be a typo, but come on.

Again, I'm sorry I offended you; hopefully you can just look at this and laugh. I was wrong to jump to unfair conclusions and judge you on a previous, immature prank pulled by someone else.

No problem John.

I'm a bit sensitive to these types of statements because of an issue a while back where a deal I posted was rejected by a Target manager and the individuals involved slammed me to the max via e-mail. I unfortunately cannot control the actions of managers of the big 3 stores whose deals I post.

What I do here and at CAG is really a labor of love which most people here and there are grateful for. I'm in a unique position to get the actual ads (and sometimes the ad proofs) early and to relay that info to the masses so that they can maximize their spending dollars.

I also try and find deals within the ads and point them out (whether the deal is on a PC , laptop, media, etc.....) to folks. Many people have thanked me for that as well.

I also answer questions about the ad contents both here and via my home e-mail. It is with extreme pride that I do this and that's why your post kinda irked me.

No harm done.

Welcome to the Forum JS! Feel free to ask any questions about any info I post.

GAMERS: Free Faceplate with purchase of Saintís Row for XBOX 360 // While Supplies last // Minimum 8 per store


Is this the reservation deal or just an in store purchase?

Tried the reservation a week or so ago and it would not work in CC's system.

It was part of the reservation deal but ad verbiage suggests that they are doing it store as a limited edition type deal.
