The plastic totes deal at Office Depot a few days ago is over (27 Gal Plastic Totes were 7.99 and could be reduced a further 30% with 30% Off $30 coupon code, I originally purchased 18 for $108 total. Soon realized they were good quality and didn't have any of the issues that some others were in the discussions. So I wanted to purchase some more but alas the price had risen to 9.99, so I hopped on a chat and politely informed the CSR that the totes I just bought 4 days ago had risen dramatically in price ($2, LOL) and I was interested in purchasing all the available stock in my local store for the same rate I had paid a few days ago, after informing me that Office Depot didn't do rain checks he did offer me 30% off as a courtesy which brought the totes down to $7 each, after which I applied the 30% coupon code and got an ever better deal than the first one. Scored 32 more totes (27 Gallons each, that's pretty big) for a measly $152. Now my next challenge is fitting them all into my Hyundai XG350, I have no fear though. I got 18 in the other day, and a few days before that I managed a 55" Westinghouse which was really a feat. Got a great deal and I don't have to buy totes again for another few weeks. Plus these particular ones resemble giant yellow & black legos, I'm considering building a very large castle in my back yard with them. After that delightful 34 minute chat session I found myself browsing Target's website and noticed they're giving out giftcards like candy corn at Halloween, including $20 GC's for XBOX bundles, which I had purchased about 2 weeks ago for a very nice discount. The prices have gone back up now but I figured I would give it a go and just ask, no harm in that right?.....
