Glad I'm not the only one. I stopped shopping there when they pulled a bait and switch on some kitchen appliances a few years back. Sign said "Kitchen Appliances 40%" then gave the savings break down over a rack of Kurigs. We picked up the coffee maker we wanted and realized we didn't get the sale price. So, off to guest services we go. They said it wasn't on sale. We asked to see the manager. We took him to the rack and showed him the Kurigs on the sale rack. His response was that since the Kurig's price wasn't listed on the breakdown it wasn't one of the sale items. Needless to say we returned everything we bought and haven't been back since.

So my MIL called yesterday and told my DW that she had her debit card hacked and that the culprits spent over $1K at the Dollar Store? Can you imagine spending over $1K at the $1 store? Amazing, simply amazing.

‘Morning all…
Things are starting to calm down a bit. May that trend continue.
Man I could use some time in The World…

May it not come to that worst-case.

Yah… they did you dirty there.
We shop there from time to time but I pay no attention to the “You Saved” or the “Sale Price” stuff there or anywhere else. No one saves anything; you either do or don’t buy it for the price listed. That foolishness makes me nuts. The various “rewards cards” are the wackiest. There’s no reward of any kind. You still pay exactly what the seller wants to charge for the item; you’re just agreeing to surrender you privacy in that transaction and allowing them to track and attempted to exploit your purchase habits in exchange for them not gouging you and raising the price farther.

Sorry to hear that. Being a debit card makes it worse. Had it been a credit card, the damage could have been limited.

We got one of our credit cards hacked a couple of months ago. Interestingly enough, the bank thought that the charge was suspicious because it was a purchase over $300 at a chain store we almost never use and in a city where we had no spending history. So they denied the charge and sent me an email asking if it was a valid purchase. Needless to say, it wasn’t. Not expecting that type of efficiency from a bank, I didn’t respond to the email but rather called them directly. They confirmed that it was a valid warning, that the charge was denied and then immediately canceled the card, assigned a new number to our original account (so we wouldn’t loose the history) and then even FedEx-ed new cards to us the next day. Like I said, I was very surprised to get that kind of service.

Wouldn't you think spending that much at a Dollar Store might just raise a red flag???

Unless of course the person who did it was an employee there, but that would be even more stupid.

A tip that works for most of the "rewards" cards: A lot of times you can go to places and get one and just "forget" to send in the attached mailer with your personal information. The card you have still swipes and works like normal when you go into the store.

I was surprised when I went in there once and they sold things for more than a dollar. I think that is false advertising. Still, couldn't imagine what you could buy in there for $1K. Do they sell Sudafed or other meth making stuff?

And they lost a current sale and future sale. But, they count on other sheep believing how much they are saving by spending.

Found two receipts in my rain jacket pocket from WDW. It took me right back there.

That is a stressful time. Prayers for all involved. I am one of those worse case guys as well - it will either be the worst or hopefully better.

Somehow, I don't think all my nose blowing and hacking will improve my chances from last week.

Yeah, I saw the news saying they were targeting the long weekend.

I guess beer sales will be up for a while...

Greetings from cold, rainy central Indiana

I love Spring I had my physical this morning and I asked the Doc about my allergies. He said the best cure would be to move somewhere warm. I'm considering that a prescription to move to WDW

Excellent idea. CJ has plenty of yard space for all our campers. CJ, go ahead and install another water and electric hookup. The DisDad campers are rolling.

So I thought I would go on the Disney site to try and price out rooms for Marathon Weekend. Every resort I look at says that no rooms are available. Could it really be completely booked or is it too early to try and do so because they haven't set 2014 rates?

Go figure, PETA bought a mere 80 shares of Seaworld stock, and that's enough to attend shareholder meetings, Now they want to free the whales

I told my guy I wanted 1000 shares if it opened at $20 or less but it opened at more like $30 so it was a no deal, if 80 shares can get you into shareholder meetings I wonder what 1000 would do
