So, yesterday I'm walking through Rona to get some plumbing parts and walk by the Tool section. I noticed a yellow box on the bottom of the clearance shelf and decide to take a closer peak.
Turns out its a 2-piece DeWalt 18v drill/impact kit. Marked from $499 to $469 as "open box". It's got everything, minus the bag.
So I start walking away. I dont need another tool, especially for $469! Thats when the light bulb goes off. I remember seeing a dewalt kit in the Lowes flyer for $198 while i was... uhm.. where most guys read the paper. The box this is in is dusty, price markings all over it. Clearly it's been there a few weeks atleast. Hrmm. I wonder how much I can get this for......
Back over to the tool section I go, grab the box and head over to the Customer Service counter where I poliltely ask for the Manager in charge of tools (no pun intended)
. He comes over and already has a grin on his face, almost like he knew where I was headed with this.
So I say to the guy "Hey, I saw this on the clearance shelf for $469, but I remember seeing something similar in the Lowes flyer for $198." He smiles again... "yep". "I'll give you $100 for it", i say.
He opens the box, goes through it all. Packs it back up "Why not, i wanna get rid of this anyways".
JACKPOT! $100 + tax for this, and it's all brand new. The batteries weren't even charged!
Well. thats my update for the day. I spent the rest of the evening fixing my dryer
Should have plenty done by the weekend. No work happening tonight, it's my wifes and I 2-yr anniversary today, I'd never hear the end of it if I worked on the basement tonight!
