I decided recently that I needed a new dvd player, based on the fact that my old one was no longer turning on. Seems reasonable to me. I had also decided that an air conditioning unit would be of great advantage this summer.
So yesterday afternoon I went to the Good Guys (retailers who sell electrical appliances, less for cash). I managed to pick up an LG DVD player for $90. My flatmate had bought the exact same model, for cash, two days previously, for $99. I managed top pick up a portable evaporative cooler for $90, down from $99.
I then decided I had enough money left in my wallet to try to pick up an mp3 player. So I went into another store, that had a larger range of mp3 players. Standing at the counter I was talking to the guy, counted my money in front of him, and said that was all I had. He checked how much
he could discount a few different types of mp3 player to. It was $5 more than I had, so he let me put some of the cost on the card. I managed to get a Sony 512MB mp3 palyer (valued at $180), for $140.
