Hey, three times a year I get a letter from Radio Shack giving me
10% off the bottom ticket line. I'd say that's worth it. I got my
Cell phone for just over $60 when they were $100 because I had a
$20 certificate, a 20% sale certificate, and then the 10% certificate.
The $20 was 'cash equivilent' so it could be combinded with other
sales. The 20% was a specific Nokia thing. And the 10% thing
was a "no matter what, 10% on the entire ticket" coupon. I think
that day I bought well over $200 worth of stuff and the final bill was
I know they hope you buy impulse items, but I had been trying to decide
on a cell phone for about 6 months and had finally decided on the
specific model. The coupons from RS and Nokia came in within
a one week period and clinched the deal.
And they used to give out flashlights at least twice a year, but I
haven't seen that for a while. Great way to get cheap flashlights
for the kids. Know how many 5-cell flashlights I had in my house
at one point?
Oh, I used another one of my 10% coupons to by my first HTX-242.
I was at a HAM show, and the ADI guy offered me their radio for $220.
Radio Shack said they'd meet the price, and THEN let me use the
10% when I pulled it out. Hmm, I don't know if they let me use it on
the service contract though, but I seem to think they did.
