I’d like to say that to know me is to love me. That is a matter of opinion and in some circles is a very debatable statement. Depending on who you ask in the neighborhood association, you’ll receive wildly different answers ranging from the aw shucks flattering to the unprintable. A more accurate truism would be: To know me is to know that I’m thrifty (but never cheap). Around this time of year, I take sourcing Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals in advance as a competitive sport and my true calling. Throughout the rest of the year I take a lot of ribbing for my deal hunting, but around mid-November I become the wise sage that friends and family alike come to with reverence for guidance and advisement. Think of Marlon Brando in the Godfather without the cotton stuffed in my cheeks.
My sister Patty wants to know where the best prices on Blu-ray machines are. No sweat. My best friend Bev has been asking about tablet pricing. I’ve pointed her in the right direction. Even that imbecile Mr. Martin across the street has made queries about George Foreman grills and where the deals may be had. While I considered sending him on a fool’s errand (the only kind he knows), my generosity of spirit directed him to an incredible offer. The only perplexing request I’ve had so far is from my elderly Aunt Ginny, who’s asked about getting a new portable tape deck. We’ll figure something out for her.
With you in mind I did a little sleuth work here to find out what some of the titles would be for iWin’s upcoming Thanksgiving Sale, casually throwing some titles into conversation and gauging reactions. You’d think I was after classified state secrets by the reaction I got! I wasn’t able to find out exact pricing or a full list but if you’ve had your eyes on any of these games, you might be in for a pleasant surprise next week:
Vegas Penny Slots Pack 3
The Otherside Realm of Eons
…and I suspect there will be many more.
Now I do have to provide a disclaimer: If I’m wrong or have been deliberately thrown off the trail, please don’t blame me. If I’m right and get into trouble for talking out of class, can I count on you to back me up? I hope so! Have a great weekend!
