I think that the holiday season is a good time to pick up some stuff where the pricepoint was previously too steep for you, but on the other hand, if there is some newer stock that is still full priced, and you want it, it's better to get that than something that you want less, but seems like a better "deal".
Totally agree. I was reacting more to the flurry of "Fuck, I can't stack coupons for 95% off!" posts, the entitlement (see the Everlane thread, the Mauro-bashing, etc) that seems to appear regularly with certain posters and won't go away - the posters who are like herpes sores, in other words.
Sales Alert Thread is great. People don't have to lose perspective to save a few bucks, however.
