Should consider getting some rechargable battery... It saves you money and recyclable = less waste.
I mostly use eneloops and duracell nimh aa/aaa but the 9v are good for smoke alarms etc

Every flyer I look at so far is "we're going to take the unknowing Canadian public as suckers" sales. I believe the RFDer won't have to worry about spending money this year as the Walmart flyer is just another added to the recycling bin.
Tis banana is IRIE :razz:

Buy One, Get One (BOGO) is not a RFD sale, it's only a sale for people that can't do math

Ugh, nothing impressive as usual so far from WM and the other retailers. Heck Forza Horizon is cheaper at SDM for $20. Halo 4 pricing is nothing spectacular. I think I'll be going to the US for this Boxing Day.

However, I do thank the RFD Staff for posting these sales up.

Agree with you guys. Another disappointment. I typically hit Walmart with my family (our yearly tradition) every boxing day for some TV series and Blu Rays, but this year I will avoid it all together. Nothing worth leaving home for. All that's left is Future Shop and Best Buy. Hope they come through and save BD for us Red Flagger's but that would be like trying to win the lottery LOL. Nearly Impossible but could happen, you never know :)

And to add, the best deal on Forza was Black Friday, where the Yorkdale Microsoft store had it for $14.99. Now this is what I call a Sale

Yeah but it was 19 bucks MONTHS ago when it was still barely a new release with high TIV.. plus it came dual packed with GTA4 EFLC.

I mean if you're a gaming newbie and missed THAT insane deal, sure it's a good price.

Also, Rebel T2i for 488 when I can get a T3i with a 50mm lens at the Source for $90 more? T2i's not bad though if you're on a really tight DSLR budget, but I would advise spending the extra money for a better camera and another good lens. Lenses are largely what make the difference with DSLRs and what will eat up your budget fast.
T3i is a worst camera, only a noob with no camera experience will think t3i is better... Any real avid user knows the t2i has the glorified 7d sensor, and the t3i/ 60d/ t4i suffer from alot more Moire...

Ive run plenty of t3i / t2i on my jobs and the t3i always comes out grainier.

Not so hot.

I'm looking mainly for games and majority of interest i've already bought for cheaper or are cheaper somewhere else during boxing day.

Forza Horizon is $19 at SDM Dec26-27.

Is this a joke?
My thoughts exactly. Boxing Day is dead. I wont be spending a dime. The best deals are had before x-Mas if you have a good eye.

If it is batteries you want, and a RCSS store is near you, they may have Energizer 9V 4-packs available for $6.27 or so now. At least they did at the Toronto Don Mills/Eglinton location a couple days ago so YMMV.

EDIT: Energizer sale was last weekend but it is likely comparable battery deals will be available elsewhere .

As far as Boxing Day "sales" go, you know it's a crappy year when Home Outfitters, of all places, beats Wal-Mart in pricing for some items (take the storage ottoman for example, HO was selling similar ones last Sunday for $49.99, which wasn't even as good as the deal on Black Friday when I bought one at the same price and scored a $20 money card for a future purchase on an item I wanted that was drastically reduced in price). My advice is to hold out for the next time the ottoman goes on sale at HO if there is a store near you.
