alrighty... and to maximize my GC's

If you ladies can recall back to early May, I purchased 2 tents with a stockpile of Target gift cards and only paid $2.18.

Now neither tent has been used, as we aren't camping until July 11. In today's ad they are on sale, total back if I return them is $43 plus change and tax. How many more camping supplies is that? Quite a bit. Now depending on who is working the C.S. desk, I may have to have John go find one of each on the shelf, I don't see it being a problem.

Go for it. I'm returning something today to Toysrus (their prices are really ridiculous right now) and buying it at walmart instead even though I'll have to drive to the Cicero store because it's sooo much cheaper. I bought the item on sale at toysrus and even used a $10 coupon on top of that, and it's still cheaper at walmart.

 No, they went on sale... $39.99 off of one, and $24.99 off of the other. I had already price adjusted them once within the 14 day period. It was past the 14 days, and the new difference (between my price adjustment and the new price) was $43....

Target policy is that an item can be returned within 90 days for any reason. So John and I "returned" them after making sure they had ones on the shelf to rebuy in order to get the new sale price.

We only returned and rebought them b/c they hadn't been opened yet.

 That was another 4 pack of toaster forks (the long 2 pronged forks for roasting hot dogs etc over the fire), a hatchet to keep in our camping tote, an air mattress, fire starters, and 2 more "mini" propane things for our griddle.
