I got a great deal today! A while ago I got an unexpected bonus and there were four items that I was thinking about getting - one of which was a bike.
I went to the shops today and noticed that there was 20% off on bikes, and so thought that I might as well pick a bike and get it today. After trying to decide which one to get for a while I finally picked a mid ranged price one and took it to the registers.
When I got there, the helmet and the bike came to a grand total of $46, and I was so shocked I said to the girl that that couldn't possibly be right. She scanned again, and the bike came up at $20, so she called a manager, who called another manager, and in the end I ended up getting it for $16. In effect the helmet that I bought with it cost me twice as much as the bike did!
Of course, buying a bike is the first step. The second step is putting it together, and the third step is actually using it!
Now, I can more easily afford one of the other items which was a barbecue to sit on my back deck!
