Sold A Book & Found Coupons

December 28th, 2012 at 01:43 pm

We sold a book on half.com overnight. Net profit only $0.83, but I'll take it. The book is already at the post office on it's way to the new owner.

We made another trip to Target today. Our youngest daughter wanted to buy a Wii game. She had a pajama shirt to return that we gave her for Christmas. She also returned a gift from a friend that she received for her birthday back in July. Both items netted her $24.32 in Target credit.

The game she wanted was $49.99, but noticed before we left that it was $16.09 on Amazon.com. In the end we left Target empty handed and ordered the game online. She decided to pay another $8.99 to have it delivered tomorrow. I would have completely discouraged this normally, but the price was so good on Amazon and it will arrive with plenty of time to play before school starts again. And she did buy it with gift money.

On our way out of Target, I noticed some type of coupon on the ground. I went to pick up it up and realized it was $3 off coupon for Target. There were two others nearby upside down.

I do feel bad for someone though. These were 'apology' coupons. They read: $3 off with our apologies. We are sorry for any delays you experienced in our store today. As a token of our appreciation for your patience, please accept this coupon valid for any purchase at any Target store. We hope to see you soon.

In the end I have $9 to use at Target. I think these will be added to the 2013 Snowflake Fund!
