for me I always change the signs in my department so I catch everything like this, and never even put the sign out
i just yank every single one of the items and hide them in lockup then post the stuff on ebay
I don't think it was marked at all, in the sense that it was next to a 540A and I believe there was only one tag, which was for the 540A; I didn't really look at the tag too closely though in terms of model number...
I am pretty sure the tag that I saw didn't say $8.50 AR though, otherwise I doubt it would still be there.
I was more concerned about trying to get a brand new one; this one looks like it might have been a return, although I haven't opened the box yet.
Regardless it was a great deal for $8.50; the only thing that could have made it better would have been if it were an 'Easy Rebates' item'; they are so convenient, easy to submit and foolproof, in that if you do everything properly (i.e. choose the right offer number and enter the right Easy Rebate ID):
1) they can't claim they didn't receive the submission
2) they can't claim they didn't get the UPC or the UPC is incorrect
3) they can't get your info (mailing address) wrong, since it is all electronic
