Good luck establishing credit then. Building good/excellent credit will save you a lot in the long term when you take loans for your car/house.


Sadly in this market Credit Card means nothing. 3 years out of college with a near 800 credit score from 7 years of credit cards and I was almost unable to get a car loan. They didn't care about the credit cards at all, said I had no financial history. The rate I did get was an insult.

Credit cards have great perks for people who are able to pay the bills, but slip up once and it all comes tumbling down.

Your creditor must have fucked up rates. I did a $17,000 car loan through my credit union and got approved for the lowest available rate at the time: 1.99%. I would browse around.

I did, either denied or offered around 8% :( Ended up just paying around 50% down on a shitty 8% loan. I would have just waited and bought in full cash but my '01 civic broke down immediately after paying 1k to fix and this time it was transmission. Terrible car luck.

Do items in clearance show up on the online "Find-in-store" thing? My controller is finally showing signs of going senile and I need a new one. These seem like they'd do the trick.

Target's Find in Store function shows that only one target has limited quantity near me out of like 20 Targets, and it just happens to be on the way to the movie theater, which I can work with tomorrow.

Large purchases are what helps your credit the most. House or car, I know after buying two cars and a house, never had a late payment, I can basically get approved for anything. They give two shits about credit cards.

Don't wait, my target had five last Saturday and when I finally got a day off work today, there was only one left and I grabbed.

But do items in Clearance show up on their site? If not, I might visit a closer Target just to check. But if yes, then I'll go straight to the further one that shows a little promise.

Without smaller purchases on your credit cards, there is no way anyone will give you a loan on car much less a house. You need the credit history to establish worthiness for larger purchases.
I am not saying that credit cards are perfect but they provide the stepping stones (credit history) to better loan and mortgage rates.

Or you can forget all that and have your parents with excellent credit co-sign for you. :)

Posted 14 April 2012 - 03:42 AM

Yep. This is exactly my issue with newbies. They want people to just shut up about any off topic subject so they can get the deals and only the deals with the smallest amount of hassle/money put out by them to get it.

That's also why zemzero acted so indignant when I mentioned the shipping costs that may be likely for one of these bundles and how their $40 and no more estimate was more than a bit low.


Really? You don't know what indignant means buddy. Why would I pay someone $50 and wait when I can just go to the store and pay $60 and have it right now? Time IS money. Or, why would I use up $20 on gas to hunt down a bundle that's $20 off? Either way, I'm spending $50-$60. No money was saved, which is the point.

This isn't moby dick, there is no thrill in the great hunt to save a couple dollars. I also don't buy games that are on clearance just because it's on clearance. I guess that obviously makes me the angry one, right?

My choice to go cheap on the shipping doesn't make me ornery to your suggestions or your seemingly paranoia when it comes to the post office. I've had all levels of shipping get to me all busted up looking. It happens, I deal with it.

And really, sorry about trying to get the thread back on track, perhaps we can start an economic discussion in the best buy thread?

Or, did I just fall for a subtle "you mad, bro?" post?

No. The guy at the first store claims that some Targets will clearance out certain items depending on how well they are selling. All 3 stores had them at full price. Good thing, too. Because I don't know why-in-the-hell I went looking for 1 of those!:wall:

Maybe at $40...for Mario.

Really? You don't know what indignant means buddy. Why would I pay someone $50 and wait when I can just go to the store and pay $60 and have it right now? Time IS money. Or, why would I use up $20 on gas to hunt down a bundle that's $20 off? Either way, I'm spending $50-$60. No money was saved, which is the point.

Twenty bucks in gas? What're you driving? A Humvee?:-# I see people say how they're gonna expend a buncha gas to find these deals and that's their main excuse for not wanting to go look for them. If your vehicle is THAT bad on gas that you're gonna waste a ton of gas going to look for a deal, then you need to be shopping for a better car and not game deals.:roll:

This isn't moby dick, there is no thrill in the great hunt to save a couple dollars. I also don't buy games that are on clearance just because it's on clearance. I guess that obviously makes me the angry one, right?

Since when is $18 a 'couple dollars'. That's still a substantial discount compared to the original MSRP of these bundles($59.99). Even if they weren't discounted, they are still a pretty decent deal by themselves. The controllers are normally $54.99 and the games in these bundles are typically between $29.99 and $39.99. So at worst, at MSRP you're getting the game for $0 discount and the controller for the usual Black Friday price of $30.

My choice to go cheap on the shipping doesn't make me ornery to your suggestions or your seemingly paranoia when it comes to the post office. I've had all levels of shipping get to me all busted up looking. It happens, I deal with it.

Maybe that's why your packages are getting delivered in beat up shape, since you choose the slowest/cheapest shipping and those methods usually get tossed around a lot more. Either that or your mailman has a grudge against you or hates his job. But I know that if my stuff was arriving all messed up and it happened on a fairly frequent basis, you better believe I'm going to get in touch with both the companies shipping the items and the post office to get that resolved.

And really, sorry about trying to get the thread back on track, perhaps we can start an economic discussion in the best buy thread?

Don't worry. All of this off topic banter will likely be deleted soon enough, while keeping these highlighted/spotlighted deals that should have remained in the mega threads intact 100% for the people who feel they 'deserve' their own thread.

Or, did I just fall for a subtle "you mad, bro?" post?

Nah. I think posting that 'u mad bro' type crap is just plain stupid.
