Best deal you've ever bought on Boxing Day?

So, what's the best deal you've ever taken advantage of on Boxing Day?

I usually buy some clothes, otherwise I try to avoid the impulse buys.

This year I'm looking for a notebook.

$29.95 rogers Nokia 3595 package with 4 months of service from BB last year. It was a good deal.

Oops, you are the mod. Unfortunately, this mod has been abusing his power and continue to post in the wrong forums. I suggest a ban, but mods cannot be banned. Oh wait, they can! They just need 9986 posts! :lol:

I got that from FS too! I signed up for one year instead and got the $35 and the SAF fees waived for five months instead. Much better deal. :cheesygri


Hmm, the best deal... must be the Pine CDRW that went out of stock. FS replaced it with a Pine external CDRW at the same price, $5!!! I think some people returned it and got $100 back without doing anything!

Was that the one last year at Best Buy for $80? That was awesome, made lining up at 5 well worth it. My best boxing find so far.

Last year was the first time I went really early to Best Buy. It was funny cause we totally didn't expect that many people to line up. We got there and the line was halfway around the building and we were so shocked. The best part was how they had someone from the staff at the front with a loudspeaker and I remember hearing "this man's been here since Christmas Day".

And you should be banned for not wearing a Santa Hat this year, mrken. :cheesygri On second thought - forget it - I remember LAST year - it took you FOREVER to rid your avatar of that hat. :confused:

:cheesygri

I too got in on that deal for the Nokia; $30 for a 3595, Roots hat, Roots music backpack, AND when my phone conked out I got another one replaced over the counter, at FS, 11 mos. later!! :) I didn't bother signing up for the free air time as I was already a pay-go customer, but I just transferred my current account [my air time accumulated was able to be transferred as well] to my new phone.

People like you! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
Why can't the stupid damn stores limit it to 1 per PERSON. So if they want 10 they have to bring 10 people at least (like No Frill scammers do). Geez.

I remember a few years back; before Best Buy bought Future Shop. The latter would offer free products (or nearly free) after MIR items. Although they were all doorcrashers.

Off the top of my head: 128 meg memory, TV tuner card, Rogers Pay as you go phone, web-cam, CD's.

Although not an exceptional deal: Future Shop always offers a Harmon/Kardon amp for $300~ every boxing day. Picked up a few of these.
