A couple good deals really stand out. That $39.99 digital camera is perfect for the kids/grandma and keeping as a spare. Good deal on the refurb Dirt Devil for $39.99 as it's not an entry model (those were up around $100 when they were new, the $59.99 refurb price was warm - $39.99 is hot). If you are into indoor waterfalls (I have one - think it's GREAT. very relaxing to listen to instead of music), that is a a decent deal at $79.99.

Looks like I'll be stopping in at Big Lots around lunch time!

Hot deals. Green for you OP. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border=0>

I was at my local southern Cal Big Lots yesterday and picked
up a Coleman model 5423E700 propane camp stove marked at $25
It's a classic 2 burner. that's about 1/2 off normal price.

looks like this


not to trash the OP but my 9 yo son bought a Digital Concepts 3.1 MP camera once - it was the worst purchase he ever made. The thing takes pictures well enough in bright sunlight but anything else comes out terrible. It takes forever to store the image (long time between pictures), the flash eats up the battery seems like immediately, it is just not a good camera.

The only good thing I can say is he got a free Epson printer with that purchase.

I was just going to comment on this camera even though I dont and have never owned it when I saw your post. Can I suggest that you guys and gals spend a bit more for something that will last and is quality? Go look at Amazon or elsewhere and search by price, I know you can find some of the lower line of Fuji cameras (great quality imo and experience), or for a bit more a Canon or other brands that would suffice (again the lower end of the price line models) like Pentax,HP,Nikon or Olympus etc. You'll be so glad you did and if its a gift they'll thank you a year from now when it still works well. Be careful with all this off brand stuff Big lots gets so much of.

I also got one of those, rebadged as an Argus, in the CompUSA EpsonR220+digicam combo deal and the camera does definitely eat batteries if you have to use the flash. The only reason I kept it was because of the $60 AR combo price. I wouldn't pay $40 for just the camera, $20 maybe.

re: batteries

The digital cameras will eat alkalines. Use rechargeables, more powerful and cheaper in the medium to long run.

This is a very good site: Thomas-Dist

No, I don't work for them

Already tried, this camera will not power up on rechargeables.

Any camera that wont run on Nimh is not worth your time...my point is proved already. I suggest one that runs off of AA batteries so you can get Nimh batteries and a charger. You'll save yourself hundreds over the years vs disposable batteries. Just watch this forum for cheap digicams with name brands you know and trust...
