100 TDK CD-R $2.99 AR @ Wal-Green

Postby airtommy on Thu Nov 27, 2003 6:31 pm

Walgreen (!!!) has a 100 pack TDK CD-R (picture shows 32X):

$22.99 - $10 ad coupon - $10 MIR = $2.99

If they turn out to be 48X and if you like TDK, this is fairly hot. TDK doesn't seem to go on sale as often as Fuji, Memorex, etc.

Is the $10 ad coupon an instant $10 off at the register? If so, that makes this deal good even before the MIR!
No, I like women.

Yes, they're 48X and the $10 discount is indeed instant. The label reveals that they were manufactured in Taiwan, so is it safe to assume these are manufactured by Prodisc?

EDIT: I took the plunge, they're mfg'd by Ritek.

A friend was going there late in the morning, so I told him to grab me one if they are 48X. Unfortunately, they were sold out.

I stopped by at 7 am thinking that was when they were opening. They actually opened at 5 am and the shelf was empty. Just as I was leaving they brought their stock out from the back. Apparently they couldn't find it until then. I was there for about 10 minutes and five people came in looking for them. They had 12 spindles total.

I went to my walgreens and I did not see them in their ads as on sale, also I did not see a place on the shelf for them. maybe some walgreens don't have them on sale. :cry:

Sorry, fellas, there were at least 12 spindles (possibly more) at the Mesquite, TX (Dallas) location and even by 11am, there will still plenty left. :D Also, Walgreen's has a pretty expansive network of stores (at least locally). If one doesn't have what you're looking for, it might pay to drive a little further to another one or at least call around (for future reference)!

I drove to Walgreens Saturday night and there was no mention of any ad coupons or rebates. I asked the girl at the counter if there were any special deals on the TDK 100 pack CDRs and she said no. I looked at their weekly ads and didn't see any adds for any $10 ad coupon or any mail in rebates. Any ways when I was at the store there were still about 30 100 packs on display. Very few people would buy it for $35.

The Walgreens deal was a Black Friday special. Best Buy has the TDK 100 pack (Ritek) on sale for $7.99 after MIR. I picked up a spindle this morning. Identical to the Walgreens TDK spindle I bought on Black Friday.

Right, and on top of that, this sale was only good between 7am and 12pm on Friday.
