    Read on another forum some guy scored a 430EX II flash for $126. Retail price is about $250. Going to a CC tomorrow to see if they have any worthy deals :D

    There was an article in the local paper about this. Something to the effect of CC is now in recevership, and the liquidation company that took over has marked everything up before the discounts. People see 30% off, but fail to realize that it has been upped 20% before that, and they fall for it.

    Sounds like those "women's" stores, aka Boscovs, BonTon and the like. My wife wanted to buy perfume at Boscovs grand opening and I told her to look elsewhere. "But this is 40% off! I can't pass that up!" Well, I made her pass it up and buy it somewhere else for $10 cheaper than Boscovs' 40% off.

    It took them until they got to 75% off here before their prices on any point and shoot was below amazon.

    Their website said they think it will all round up about the end of March so I'm thinking that's when the real deals will be. The day I went everything was more expensive than the week before during a sale...

    I went to the Saks Fith Avenue closing sale with an exgf. It was pure insanity women were taking things off and trying things on in the aisles. I never laughed so much shopping with her.
