Hey there, Mrs. HIP, or if I may, Collin! Loved watching your videos over the Christmas holidays, it is so cool to see how much you all love to help those of us who LOVE a good deal!
A quick story that I thought you might like, because I can’t get over my “luck”! I always troll the clearance aisles in Target, because um, it’s Target and why not and everyone loves Target.
I noticed a Project Scorpio Xbox One X box in the electronics section (this was January 6th) – which caught my eye because A) THESE ARE LIMITED EDITION Xbox One Xs and have pretty much been sold out for 2 months and B) THERE WAS A RED TAG ON IT.
It turned out it was a repackage, selling for $350 (a $150 price drop!!!!) and upon asking the Target dude, he was more than happy to allow me to open up the box…THIS THING WAS UNTOUCHED, wires still wrapped up, sticker still on the Xbox, all contents accounted for. So (after calling my wife) I jumped – after using the Red Card and a gift card, I got the latest system for $320!!! I was crying tears of joy…
Lesson: ALWAYS STALK THE CLEARANCE AISLES, and be nice to Target people (they did NOT have to allow me open up the box, but had the best attitude)! Peace to you, your Hipsters, and your family! Happy 2018!
