This looks like a great place to find good deals—except when it’s not. Derek, who snapped the photo in his mall over the weekend, notes that “At least they made sure the disclaimer was large enough for all to see.”
We were going to list this in tomorrow’s Morning Deals, but decided the bargain was just too good to hold off posting: Harris Teeter has reduced the price on all of its Ben & Jerry’s pints, from $3.99 to $3.99.
(Thanks to Jess!)
Or as Holly, the tipster who took the photo, writes, “[there are] so many things right with this picture.”
On the other hand, we think the CVS manager in this D.C. store might want to take a look around and see how other stores are doing it. (Thanks to Rob!)
This sign is accurate. You do save more than nothing at all if you buy this reduced-price Batmobile.
Mykl Roventine has an amazing set of photos of last year’s Minnesota State Fair over at Flickr. It’s a confetti-colored slice of Americana, and a great collection of both fair food and the signage that advertises it. Cheer yourself up. [MN State Fair at Flickr]
I’m currently a Chase customer, but my brother is WaMu. As he was walking down the street in Brooklyn the other night, he managed to catch this picture.
Can there be any sadder indication of our toilet-water economy than a dollar store that references its own happier, cheaper past? This New York City dollar store has pulled down its old sign, “Everything 99¢ Or Less,” and rebranded.
Here’s a sign Flickr member betterbethany found in Portland, Oregon over the weekend. We like to imagine there’s a competitor’s sign nearby that just reads “Free Dirt.”
Robert sent in this photo he snapped at the Home Depot in Frederick, Maryland on January 4th. “The cashier rang up all three at first and they came up as $11.97. Scanning them one by one set the price to $3.33.” Maybe the extra $2 is for the stackability of the containers. After all, you don’t get that feature with just one.
