I sit here patiently waiting for some Internet Superstore to open its doors and **** up something.

The day will come will I buy a 60" HDTV for $5. Anyone ever get an unbelievable deal.

I got a $900 UPS for $20. That's the best I have done.

No % off anything

Nothin that good so far...with the 1st Staples fiasco I managed to get a Palm V for $80...the bolt.com thing was probably the most recent good deal for most people.

Yeah, I once got a deal on a DVD before. And if you are afraid to spell out F U C K then just write screw up or mess up.

<------Oh, and look, my number of posts = the speed of my CPU. :~)

I'm not talking deal here. I'm talking near robbery.

Example: new****insuperstore.com opens it doors and does a promotion to attract new customers. They offer a coupon to grant new customers $50 off first orders. The problem is the $50 off turns out to be a mistake and they grant you $xxx off your order, where xxx is the total price of your order.

You know its going to happen eventually and we'll be here waiting to jump on it like a white girl in an NBA locker room.

And which store would that be...?

While I do appreciate your pining away for a way to rip-off some internet startup, what's the point of your post?

-- Jough, I'm just saying, some day we'll actually see someone post about a bargain in this forum...

Seriously?
You got the UPS truck for $20?
That's great!

But why was it worth only $900?

Well, I might as well get in on this thread before it's locked

umm.. Hi, Mom!

okay, on a more serious note, I think (read as: HOPE) this forum area will pick up more within the next few months with christmas deals. Maybe not as much as last year (which I missed out on ), but there should be at least some coupons.

oh, dear me, does my post have nothing to do with this thread? doah!

Please excuse me, I'm just ranting.

I'm new to all these deals. All I knew before were little $10 off here and there. Now with ******, free signup cash, referrals and etc I'll be able to get my HDTV for next to nothing.

I'm saving up without ever seeing a dollar.

It's too bad you couldn't get that $20 receipt stuffed and mounted - it would have made a nice trophy on your wall.

Here's an unbelievable deal for you - get a job with a regular paycheck - then perhaps you won't have to "sit patiently" at your computer waiting for the next misprice that will save you a couple of dollars.

Well I think those days have since past. I got my Pioneer DV-525 from valueamerica.com for a net cost of $20 but now see they are filing for chapter 11. I would imagine their case study will appear in many a textbook for years to come.

BTW, I have a job and I don't sit here waiting for the deal of a lifetime to show up.

I read the forum like a read the newspaper. I stop by, glance at the posts, reply if I want to and go on my way.
