Boxing Day believe-it-or-nots

Believe-it-or-not #1
I didn't buy a thing for myself today! I explored a bit of Yonge/Eg early this morning and again just before closing time and picked up a couple items for my guys.

Believe-it-or-not #2
I actually made money shopping at Future Shop! I was surprised to save more money at one of their bricks and mortar stores than on their website. Once I receive the mail-in rebates, I'll be ahead by $2.99 - even after postage. I considered shopping online but wanted to avoid shipping costs and didn't want to wait a week or so for delivery.

Here's what I bought:
Trendnet Wireless-G Router and Wireless-G USB 2.0 Adapter package
Online pricing -
Reg. price: $89.98
Sale price: $54.98
Mail-in rebates: -$45.00
After rebate: $9.98

In-store pricing -
Reg. price: $89.98
Sale price: $35.00
Mail-in rebates: -$45.00
After rebate: -$10.00

Memorex TravelDrive 512MB USB 2.0 Flash Drive
Reg. price: $69.99
Sale price: $13.99
Mail-in rebate: -$8.00
After rebate: $5.99

Regular price: $169.97
Boxing Day price: -$4.01

By the way, if you need a USB wireless adapter for you laptop, let me know. It was more expensive to leave it behind than buy it bundled with the router. Go figure.
