    I was wrong, they're not $85, they're 95-100.

    They're still 50% more at CT. Is all the other shit they sell similarly overpriced, or is this an isolated incident. I suspect the latter...

    Luv'em or hate'em, big box retailers can afford to carry name brand stuff at much cheaper prices due to their buying power. Not that I would put much faith in any brand name anymore, as most have outsourced or outright moved production operations to China, Taiwan, Phillipines, or anywhere else labour is so cheap that they can pass on lower prices to consumers in North America.....but not with the same quality that $18.00 an hour buys you in Canada or the U.S. Progress is progress, I guess....my parents still have the same toaster they got as a wedding gift, 52 years ago....works perfect.....was a Sunbeam. Sunbeam was bought out 15 years ago and all of there product is shit now. The original company went bankrupt because if you can only sell one toaster every 40-50 years, then you're surely screwed in the era where employees want $20 bucks an hour to build something of quality....instead, we'll take a "disposable" toaster for $19.99 that lasts 2 years and sits in a landfill for another 50 years. One day, we'll end up paying huge sums of money to overseas countries, so that we can dump our garbage there....as our landfills will be full! The Chinese government must be laughing their asses off at us.....sad.

    I think it's great to be able to go in, pay with all CT money, and get CT money back to go back and do the same again.
    A real money saver!
    Personally I'd rather they just dropped a freakin' nickel off the cost of my purchase... paying with all CT money is great?! Not if you're in line behind the one doing it... waiting for the cashier to tally it all up... like being behind an old lady in a grocery store paying with small change from her coin purse (not that I'm a particularly impatient person or anything)...

    agree about the part it takes forever if they are using the actualy CT money, but I use the plastic version (on the ct mc)
    Its nice to have, usually I don't use it unless I'm buying something REALLY useless and cannot justify by reason... then I use CT money to buy it and pretend its free lol.

    BTW, I wonder if anyone is still active on this site (most post I see are from 2010)

    Penzoil synthetic oil from Costco, as well as the non-chain auto parts store in my neighbourhood, is cheaper than CT.
