Hey,

Today, I just got the best bargain of my life.
I was driving around town while my sister was at drivers ed, and I had to blow 2 hours, so I went into radioshack, picked up a soldering iron, stuff like that. After that, I went into a thrift store to see what kind of hidden treasures lurked within.

I looked across the room and saw a folded up treadmill. My old treadmill died a few months back, and to be honest, i've been getting a little out of shape. And, soccer practice is coming up.
Anyways, I walk over and i'm surprised by the fact that it's one of those nice digital programmable ones with different tracks, etc (my old one was just a basic one with a speed and incline control, not even a book rack). It was in remarkably good shape too. Just a little dust, but nothing too big.
Well, since I was in the market for a nice treadmill, I started to look for a price tag. I was expecting it to be around a few hundred bucks, since it was new and it was quite nice.
I found the price tag, and this is exactly what it said: "Treadmill: $16.00".

I was in total shock at that price. 16 bucks for a nice treadmill? I had to have it!
I even checked with the cashier for a price check. It was right, 16 bucks. I didn't even care if it didn't work.
Needless to say, I rushed to the counter to purchase it and I had one of the guys there help me load it up in my truck (the treadmill weighed a ton).
I later brought it home, plugged it in, and it fired right up. It's really nice, and it works really good. I decided to look online for the retail price, just to see if I really got a great deal.
The retail price for the treadmill was 800 bucks!

So, this was easily the best bargain i've ever had.
What's yours?

How old are you? I honestly don't know anyone under the age of at least 30 who would just up and buy a treadmill. It's actually pretty funny when I think about it

I once found a quarter on the ground. I then spent it on a piece of bubblegum from a machine.

My ratio of retail-price to paid-price is infinitely more great than yours! Bwaha!

I was thinking this... But treadmills/appliances take BIG hits on the used market.
I could probably get 200 bucks profit off of it if I used craigslist. And even then, although an extra few bucks would be nice for my guitar stuff, I would like to keep the treadmill for a while atleast. Atleast until soccer starts up, and I get in better shape.

And I'm looking for that free ride to me
I'm looking for you


TS, I'd call that a bargain.
The best I ever had.

Yesterday I picked up a TV that I found on the side of the road.
Took it home, plugged it in, hooked the cable up, and it works fine.
I gave it to my grandma since hers burnt out a week or two ago.

If the treadmill (or anything useful for that matter) was 98-something percent off it's original price, I don't know why anyone wouldn't want to buy something like that.

I wanna know the guy who decided to price the treadmill.

"Okay, Paul, no one's gonna buy this treadmill. Should we put it low, like $15?"

"Don't be crazy. That's way too low. Let's just make it $16 and get out of here."

Actually, I got it for 14 bucks because there was a store wide sale going on

I wonder if I scoured some surplus stores, I could find a crate of old tubes for like 10 bucks or something.

The BEST BARGAIN in my life was when i bought like 15 DS games off of my friend for 15 bucks and then looked up the prices their accumulated price was averaged at 20 bucks a game ... so 300 dollahs. I still have em though, Metroid Prime is tonnes of fun.

They were found on the ground not stolen.
