Not me, I kept my butt-ox home and out of the fray yesterday.
Today I went out to see what was left at the Drug Stores, and maybe a little "clean up duty". I was feeling kinda bad about buying all the MM and 'good' stuff from the sale on Thursday and leaving the rest, so I thought I'd go back and buy up the FARR leftovers.
I had also read that stores that sold the most on BF got bonuses, so I figured what the heck, I made a good profit, I'll blow some on tax buying free stuff to help them out. (Mainly 'my' store, but another store, for some reason I don't know, doesn't charge sales tax, so I could shop there all night and it not cost me a penny.)
The first Wags I stopped in (the no-tax store) had quite a bit of stuff left. I found out why pretty quickly. The Manager (or whoever he was) saw me loading stuff into my buggy and then I heard him telling another guy that since it was this late, they could let up on the limits 'some'. If 'they' were 'getting ridiculous' then say something, but otherwise, it would be okay to not limit the items.
Keeping in mind, this was like 6:00pm, dark and yucky outside, last night of the sale. And he's worried about someone 'getting ridiculous' while trying to spend money in his store???
Dude had probably 20 boxes of Culturelle and that Sam-E stuff, and like twice as many of those Energy strips. Plenty of Colgate, Scunci, toothbrushes, Dentek, Children's Advil. I could have raised his sales by several hundred dollars easily.
But I didn't want to 'get ridiculous', so I got three deals and took my money elsewhere.
ETA: Final Total including tax $25.74 cost. Boooo! Not good.
ETA: Final Total including tax $10.79 profit.
