Samsung score!

Our mission: To find a decent new washing machine in the least amount of time and for the best deal possible. Visited preferred, semi-locally owned Store A in search of machine comparable to our old one in size and color and decided on the Samsung (a brand recommended by the repairman who fished the bra wire out of the dead washer - he would know, right?)  I took photos of the $999 price with my phone. Saleswoman said: "If you find a better deal out of there, we'll match it."  Went to national chain Store B and found the exact same model for $849 and no delivery charge. (Store A's delivery fee was $59.) Moseyed over to national chain Store C for confirmation that Store B's was the lowest price. Called Store A and gave them Store B's price. Price matched for a savings of $209!! AND, the thing has steam and a self-cleaning feature, so no more smelly washer. Boom! This almost makes up for my Friday the 13th from hell.

Use it in good, my love. Looks fab!

Thanks. It was a hit to the wallet and a tough lesson to learn (use bra bags, who knew?) but we're trying to make lemonade here.
