Damn, what a killer hook-up DT! Good score!

I have 2 RSs that are closing around me, but they haven't had shit for a while now.

I think it was $1.30! The good thing is that he didn't charge me for everything. I got 10 items but was only charged for 8 8-)
I'll be going back tomorrow and cleaning out the rest. And get more coupons :-o

Namuna, The coupons I got the other day have addresses to 3 other Radio Shacks like the ones you got. It does not say that you "Have To" use them there, it just gives you 3 others in the area of the closing one, I will make that point when I use them. I'm going to try one in DC that still had a buncha shit left over. I'll letcha know.....

Well good luck to ya Bro, cause that's the EXACT argument I gave them (2 places) and they shut me down.

So now I just get a list of all the stores in a 10 mile radius and systematically call them and verify whether they'll accept the coupon or not. I also SPECIFICALLY tell them that there's 3 alternate shacks listed and ask whether or not they'll still accept.

So far, it's been about 1/2 of them that say Yes, a ratshack coupon is a ratshack coupon (I make SURE to get there names!)...The others say basically they don't know and would have to look at the coupon (that's basically going to be a NO as far as I've seen).

Good luck to ya though!

Man, none of the shax near me are closing, and worse, none of them have shit left for ZZ. Just some of the new Bond cars and the Sampson MT with the big pink arms on the side. :-?

If one of you guys happen to run across the new green mustang (Shelby?), my collection has a hole at that spot.

They saw you coming. :razz:

I've used the coupons I picked up in Bethlehem, PA in Philly and the ones in Langhorn, PA up in Whitehall, PA.

The coupons are good at ANY Radio Shack that isn't closing.
