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.
:twisted: :twisted:
seriously i think they should put limits on items.. coz ppl who end up lining up in the subzero temps and dont get them... bah... just plain annoyance...

yeah thats the one... i only managed to get one coz ppl were like getting 2-3 each... >_<.. altho this years 69$ 120gb does sound promising

I got the Fido Siemens A56 phone plus 3 months Fido-to-Fido airtimes ($25/month) including system access fees ($6.95/month) and 911 fees ($0.25/month) all for $49.99 from FS. Then asked a family member to refer me when I activated the phone at home. I got $20 referral credit and my family member got another $20 credit. Basically all for $9.99.

A56 phone (value $125) + 3 months free airtimes + system access fees + 911 fees (total value $100) = $9.99 with NO contract.

You can sell the phone at <a href=../autolink/redirectpage.php?linkid=78 target=_blank>eBay</a> after 3 months.

hmm ... from what I recall, best Boxing Day deals for me would be those free PC games after rebate at CompuSmart (I know they used to have them at FutureShop too but it was during the summers), and last year I bought those D-Link routers for $10 after rebate at Staples & FutureShop (one for me, and others were for friends). And yes, the rebates all came.

Well, I got 3 (think that was the limit), then noone else wanted any (and they had like 50), so I asked for 3 more, came back later, and got 4 more....
Noone else wanted them....I was happy!

$30 APC power bar, $28 rebate. Think it was only offered on Boxing Day; it's a boring item, but I'm happy. :)

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.
Is Carnage doing the Santa hat this year again? I haven't had time to go to the OT lately. I will probably take the hat off after I get 10000 posts, but then that may be another year, because it looks like a busy year ahead for me. :cheesygri And that's assuming that I don't get wintech'd. :lol:

So mods don't get wintech'd? :( :razz:

I didn't get the Roots package with the phone. :(

Apex AD1500 DVDPlayer for $99 (few yrs ago!!) and it is still working today (and modded to no region on Day 2!)

Also an Apex 27" TV on the same day.. forget the price now.

And I think I got the HD deal on boxing day too...

This is my first Boxing Day, so whatever deal(s) I get this year will be the best I've gotten :)

I've gotten countless great Black Friday (day after US Thanksgiving) deals...far too many to post...over the years. I'm hoping Boxing Day provides similar savings! :)
