Anyone see any good deals on pliers and ratchets? There is a $100 set of ratchets and wrenches at Lowes tomorrow, but it is not 100% what I am looking for.

Wife picked up for me the first 4 seasons of Sons of Anarchy on Blu-Ray for about 50$ total for all 4 seasons... not bad. Hoping season 5 goes down from its current asking price of 40$ over the next few days.

Rolled up to Wally World at 5:45 and walked right in. Found the laptop area, got my ticket. Got the laptop, waited in a long line, and was home by 6:40.

Boom.

In the last three days I've purchased an iPad mini, a laptop, Skylanders SwapForce starter set and One Direction tickets. All the big gifts done at super Black Friday-type deals. Now onto socks and underwear type of gifts.

Wife called me at 9, said they still had iPads for $299 with a $100GC. So got it for $270 plus tax after her 10% discount. iPad for under $200 essentially i guess.

And we had to return the ipad. because she used her employee discount, which invalidated the access code. i despise this store and wish i could quit them.

For the one hour guarantee, each receipt had an access code. The access code then matched up to the item card. I guess since our access code was valued at $285 instead of $318 it was invalid.

Need help finding a cell phone since my 4 year old phone broke last week. I mainly text, do little in browsing, and need a plan that is cheap. The $30 T-Mobile plan at Walmart seems like a good deal. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
