A couple years ago while driving home, we caught the tail end of a family’s garage sale. They told my kids they could each pick something to take home for free. (I think this is the part of the garage sale when you’re more concerned about getting rid of stuff than making a buck!) My son was beyond excited to find an old scooter among the pile. That scooter got soooo much use, so it was inevitable when it completely fell apart a couple weeks ago.
I decided to pick him up a new one at Fred Meyer yesterday. He chose this one:
And here’s what happened at checkout:
Don’t you love it when a random discount like this happens? That brought the total cost of the scooter to just $23.98! For comparison’s sake, I went online to see if I could find a better deal. The next lowest price is Amazon for $27.44, with most online retailers selling it between $32 – $35. I think I got me a deal!
Even better, this thing took all of five minutes to assemble. (Have I ever said how much I hate assembling things?)
I’m unsure how long this deal is good for – but I can tell you it happened yesterday at Fred Meyer on the scooter pictured above. Unfortunately, there are no in-store coupons that apply to this purchase (trust me, I looked – and my cashier tried). There is a buy one, get one 1/2 bike & accessories coupon good through Saturday that you’ll find at the store. While this can’t be used towards the purchase of scooters, you could use it on helmets, pads, etc.
If you’re planning a trip, make sure to see what else is on sale at Fred Meyer through Saturday!
