What did you buy boxing week?

If you didn't buy anything (which is probably the majority) you don't need to post. I just want to see what deals people thought were worth buying and if I missed a good deal. I will go first.

128g Lexar USB Drive $25 @ Bestbuy
Blue Jays Zip Up Hoodie $29 @ Lids
Philips Sonicare Flexcare Platinum $100 @ Amazon.ca
Batman Bundle (arkham origins/akham city/arkham asylum/etc) $9 @ Bundlestars (redeemable on Steam)
Grim Fandango Remastered $3.39 @ Steam
Single Monitor Mount $20 @ Amazon.ca
6g $60 Fido plan

I walked into my local best buy and purchased a 32 inch Sharp TV to use as a computer monitor..not that big on gaming. Although, I love watching movies, YouTube, editing video, browsing the internet and what not. This should be a good purchase - it will take some time to get used to the big arse screen, though. Getting used to it..HDMI via my PC.

Also, some really cool fitted hats and that's it.

No need to buy any video games, Blu-Rays, etc..deals were cold as fuu.

Command messenger by Timbuk2 from shoeme for $107
sonicare platinum from amazon for $99
Amazon Tripod for $18
Nordicware baking sheet from amazon for 17
Canon 50mm 1.8 lens from amazon for 130
Darn Tough socks from amazon for 22 (no discount sorry)
-Will be getting ebates on all of the above, yay!

Was going to get Iron Rangers from Shoeme for 180 ish but they didn't have my size. I might check out a local redwing dealer today though...

Was teetering on getting Adobe Lightroom subscription. Found an affiliate link of $8US a month but haven't pulled the trigger yet. Cheapest Lightroom 6 is $199. Still looking...

Was able to save some $ by cleaning the gunk out of my Shure SE530s... I had forgotten that stuff gets in there and they give you a tool for it. yay!

I never heard of ebates until I came back to these forums, once again..I need to find out what those are and how/why you guys use them!

That's a pretty decent haul, dude! I used to pick up movies and games..now, I only have time for a select few video games and movies..well, you can get them from the web ;)

I purchased Mafia 3 and Bioshock collection for the Ps4 $29.96 each which I thought was a great deal from Walmart and the Xbox One S Halo / Gears bundle from Amazon. Not big on the Xbox but for $329.99, figured it's worth a try.

I had a electric toothbrush before but over time the replacement heads became expensive to buy because they stopped making that model and it wasn't popular. I switched back to manual toothbrushes but the electric definitely did a better job cleaning. The Sonicare that we bought got really good reviews so I'm looking forward to the upgrade.
