How much would a 75-300 lens cost on its own? That's the cheapest deal I've seen.

OK, theres also a deal for this:

T3i with 18/55 lens. You have to pay $999 up front, but after the rebate it's $600. Plus you get the 55-250mm lens which is very well reviewed. You also get a 16GB card and a camera bag. Not to mention the photo printer.

The rebate just scares me. What happens if I never get it.

I am a Walmart Distribution Center employee. I am a "loader." What that means is that I load freight into eighteen wheeler trailers (between 5 and 7 trailers normally, occasionally 9 - 11 trailers.) at a rate of 500 cases per hour. I work three days a week, 12 hrs a day. I get two twenty minute breaks and a thirty minute lunch.

The work is grueling and the hours are long. With that said...

It is the best job I've ever had. Sure, I hate the work itself. But these are the reasons why it's the best job I've ever had:

Starting pay was $17.25/hr. I've been there 6mos. and am now making $18.25/hr.
I have four days off. Every week. This schedule makes working full time to support myself, my wife and my child feasible, while still going to school.
I get really good health insurance. In addition to the insurance, I also have $200K in life ins., AD&D, Short Term and Long Term Disability, Dental, Vision and insurance for my daughter. And I pay $70/month. Total.
I contribute $50/mo to the employee stock purchase program. Walmart matches 18% of this up to $1800.00 (effectively giving me almost $200.00 for free.)

While I think the whole extending black friday to Thursday thing is bull****, I will say that they are not a terrible place to work. While I am not defending them, I do intend to offer a little more balance to this dialogue simply by sharing what are tangible facts in regards to my job.


I didnt know this. interesting.

Go Wal-Mart! Yeeeeaaahh!

No seriously, that doesn't sound like a bad rap that guys got.

I wish I could work only 3 days a week.

My fiancee does 3 on 3 off. Of course she's in management and I will admit she does not get treated as well as she could but she gets paid a decent amount for her work.

They talk about a couple 50 inch TVs for $299 at Bestbuy. I don't really have a need for a new TV, but maybe for a present. I'll find out the models and read up to see if they're at least OK. I think one's from Toshiba and one from Panasonic.

btw, I don't ever go fight people at the line, so if I can't do it online, then forget about it. I don't expect them to stock many units.

Yeah, Kitchen-Aid has a lower end stand mixer available during November and December for about this price. It doesn't have many attachments (bowl, paddle), so if you knead a dough hook (get it?), wire whip, be ready to pay for those separately. At the sub-$200 price point.

I somehow ended up on this page. It's a collection of this years' ads in pdf format. I got it off a slickdeals conversation.

I know nothing of ProScan TVs, but KMart has a 50 inch 1080 for $288.
