The annual inventory blowout sale is coming up this weekend - has anyone seen any lists from individual stores yet? I was told that they would be on the website today, but nothing appears yet.

I don't need anything (except for a 335 but that can wait), but won't pass up a good deal if I stumble across one.

Retail sucks for me because of the sales tax. 25% off - 13% HST = 12% savings. Used gear routinely 50% or greater, no tax.

I don't believe it. I'm used to getting emails from L&M about their sales, but I just got a robe-call from them!

Riiiight, that makes sense because you only pay tax on sale items :rolleyes:

Yes. I shoplift, burgle or strong arm all new full priced items. If I buy used it's paid for with the proceeds of crime. Armed robbery usually.

I will probably show up at a L&M location at some point during the times they are open for that sale--might not buy anything--but I'll be checking it out--especially if they have some cables & stuff on for a good price...

What is wrong with that calculation? Or do you never include the tax in the cost of your goods / purchases?
Derp.

$1,000 x 1.13=$1,130

$750 x 1.13=$847.50

$1,130 - $847.50=$282.50

282.50 / $1,130 = 0.25 x 100 = 25%

It's still 25% off even after you pay the tax.

I always consider it as a permanent negative sale of 13%. So for me, all stores are always having an ADD 13% SALE. When they offer 25% off, it is in reality 12% off.

LOL you keep doubling down on your error.

It's still 25% off the total you would normally pay, because you always pay tax. As my previous example showed you...
