Great bargain shopping, post your finds

I was out and about last weekend just browsing with no real intent to buy anything. I fell apon some rims at a sporting goods discount store that I could not pass up. Check out the price I paid per wheel, and I snatched up all they had(4 pairs). Looks like I have some good beater rims for the trainer and winter use.

How the heck does something get marked down to 2 cents!

Pretty amazing deal --

I recently learned about the wonderful world of pro deals. If you can put some sort of amazing spin on your trip, start sending out emails to companies, and you will likely get discounted gear or free stuff.
