That's simply a gimic to get people in to buy up their inventory. Did you see the crowd of people not normally seen when going to look? More then usual despite the so called mark offs. (ripp offs)
They were selling an HP black+while/monochrome LazerJet printer for $179.95 marked down to $140- while newegg along with HP now sees an $80 rebate bringing it down to $99! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16828115080
For about $20 more then "their" usual price for the P1006 newegg has the same sized color lazer printer seen for $199.99. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16828115139
Now look around and you may find that seeing a better price like the one seen for the Traveler 100 at buy.com. But they're not the only ones charging high on things like flash drives or printers. I also found an office supply store like Staples to be stiff as well.
Recently I needed a usb hub and walk out of Walmart with a reliable 4 port job for $20. Go to Staples and pay twice that for a 7 port deal? har! It didn't even work with their brand name on it.
I won't miss seeing one gone while sometimes having to put up with the other at times. Meanwhile I'll be browsing for the best price on a 64gb flash drive that can top the one seen at newegg as well as a new color printer.
