 I get spam emails from a wood store. Today on cyber Monday, I got a hot deal offer on a stool with a cushioned seat and on wheels. SAME one I purchased a few months ago. The cyber offer was $39.95.  What a deal!!  I paid less than $30 for the same one 5 months ago. I know you are wondering which store I am talking about. Starts with Wood and ends with Craft. I have yet to find a good deal on anything they offer on sale. Am I wrong?

I did get a bargain from them about two or three months ago . I got an e-mail saying 5 dollar router bits for one day only. I ordered early that morning an got some of all listed. Then about a month later, same deal but different bits but I waited till that afternoon to place the order and most were already sold out that time. There was no warning before either day.

I really believe ALL online retailers have the best Cyber Monday deals about a month prior to today. (Same with Black Friday)

 

There are so many stories just like the one you related, Ron, that you have to believe it's all hype.

According to the experts (whoever that is), the week prior to Christmas yields some of the best buys at least on electronics (TV's PC's, etc.).

Can't speak to everything, but I've found some great deals on sweaters, shirts, etc. the week prior...sometimes the selections are limited...

On line ordering is how the world is going. We did nearly all of our shopping that way, delivered free to our door. Keeps this ole guy out of the malls. Sure make me wonder how the big stores are going to continue.  About 10 miles down I-25 at Castle Rock,  they are building what will be the largest shopping area in the US. Could end out being the biggest mis timed retail shopping construction ever.

All our Christmas gifts are bought and awaiting wrapping. Never set foot in a store. But, while in Tucson, we drove by a few mega malls. Not a parking place to be seen. They were packed.

Wife was in a store in August that had a bunch of their toys 50% off.   Got Legos and games and took care of most of shopping for grand kids.

Found a Bosch 12v Drill Driver Kit for sale $99 everywhere.  Looked to see what CPO had to offer.  Same price &99, or if you wanted a reconditioned one, it was &110.

Like Ron says..

 

Learn to spell  A M A Z O N .  Not too far away from refining methods for your to choose groceries on your computer screen and have them delivered free.  Bye bye Wally World's grocery side..

Guess I'll need to run out tomorrow and do my Christmas shopping.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
