At the request of other members I initially decided to remove this area. Now due to feedback from several other members I have decided to restore this area. Parker

This is one of my favorite forums, too, and I had no idea it was in danger of being removed. Also, I can't imagine why anyone would ask for it to be cut -- it does engender much controversial talk of any sort and it has saved me lots of money. So, kudos for putting it back, even thought I did not know until a few minutes ago that it was ever gone. Deborah

Thanks for listening and bringing back the Coupons and Bargains area. I check this out everytime I'm here, and I too appreciate Mr. Lambert's hard work that he puts into his posts each week! The path to thicker wallets is through Al Bundy's picture... --Tom

I, too, have a hard time imagining why any member would be upset that this section existed. Of course, I might be a tad prejudiced about that! Posted Image But Parker's explanation over in Forum Feedback says it had to do with low post counts. However low the post counts were, the View counts were always high! Posted Image

Thank you for restoring the section, Parker...and thanks to Ron as well. And much gratitude to those who appreciate my weekly posts! I thank you for the outpouring of support.

I'm sorry I don't have all the info right here. I'll re-post when I get home and eat some dinner. In the meantime, I'll repeat what I said in Forum Feedback:


All I can say is that, off the top of my head, Best Buy seemed to have the best price on everything I posted (Blind Date, Used Cars, Klute, Follow That Bird, Jay Jay the Jet Plane, and Ghost World) except for Captain Corelli's Mandolin, which was tied for cheapest at CostCo and Circuit City. I hope I'm not misremembering, but I don't think so.

I was definately going to go to Best Buy for Used Cars ($14.99), Jay Jay ($12.99), and - if OAR - Follow That Bird ($12.99). I don't care about CCM or GW, and I'll wait on Klute for now. I'd get Blind Date just for John L's psychotic performance, but $19.99 is too much for this title right now...I'll wait for a markdown.


And a note to Rob Lutter: I don't think Ghost World is at Costco, but if time allows I'll personally check on the way home!

Thanks to both Parker and David, for obvious reasons. Now, about those 15 missing posts of mine... Posted Image
He obviously misinterpreted what it means to "be bullish."

I never hear about any coupon codes any more. However, I do check this section almost daily just in case the online retailers decide to revert to two, three years ago and offer a few bajillion 50% off coupons.

Ah, halcyon days...
Wow. It's been a while since I've posted here. Hello, again!

I agree with the others. This site should definitely stay and a tip of the hat to the ever-popular David Lambert for his price research. Posted Image

I may never post here...but I check in ALL the time!

Any chance of getting David Lambert's post for this weeks B&M bargains restored? I'm still on the fence about Ghost World.

I also like to read the posts in this forum even though I don't post much here myself. This area has also saved me over $200, so I have deep feelings for it. Posted Image

Thanks for bringing it back.

When I saw that it disappeared last night I nearly went into a panic. Thanks for bringing it back, Parker!

Maybe those 'members' work for Suncoast or Barnes & Noble or some other place that likes to charge mrsp and were tired of us finding out how much cheaper we could get it elsewhere. Posted Image
