This is an amazing deal for those of you in the Milwaukee area. Colders Furniture/Electronics/Appliances is having their "Spend a Dollar, Get a Dollar Back" sale this weekend only. The economy is making some retailers do some interesting things!! Here's how it works:
Buy any merchandise (e.g., we bought a Samsung A550 50" 1080p plasma TV for $1,999) and get a gift certificate for Colders in the same amount of your purchase. When we left the store, we received a gift certificate for $1,999 which expires 2/15/2009. (You can use it immediately, if you want, we weren't ready to do so). If you choose to buy furniture/mattresses with your gift certificate, you will receive 100% of the value of the gift certificate on your furniture/mattress purchase. If you choose to buy electronics or appliances with your gift certificate, you will receive 50% of the value of the gift certificate on your electronics/appliance purchase. (must be something due to the extreme markup on furniture).
We will likely buy some living room furniture (with custom fabric), an ottoman and a TV stand. When we check out, we will get a $1,999 credit on that purchase. In essence, we will be getting a Samsung 50" 1080p plasma TV AND $1,999 in furniture for a grand total of $1,999!! It sounds too good to be true, but we ran the numbers before pulling the trigger. While I am aware that I could have bought this TV for ~ $1,500 elsewhere, I would not have received the gift certificate to be used towards furniture/electronics. Note: if we chose to buy an AV Receiver or a washer/dryer (or other electronics/appliances) with our gift certificate, we would get a $1,000 credit (or 50% of the gift certificate value) on that purchase.
Colders has 4 locations in the Milwaukee area: West Allis, Grafton, Delafield and Oak Creek.
From their Website:
Spend a Dollar Get a Dollar Back!
Purchase furniture, TVs, appliances or Serta Perfect Sleeper, Serta Perfect Day or Serta Vera Wang mattress and box spring sets and get that full amount back to spend on more living, dining, family or bedroom furniture, Serta bedding, chairs, recliners or table groups. For example, spend $1000 on a Serta Perfect Sleeper mattress set and get $1000 back to spend on bedroom furniture.
Purchase furniture, TVs, appliances or Serta Perfect Sleeper, Serta Perfect Day or Serta Vera Wang mattress and box spring sets and get a Gift Certificate for that amount to give as a gift to family member, friend or co-worker to use towards a furniture (including Serta Perfect Sleeper, Serta Perfect Day and Serta Vera Wang) purchase. If the recipient of the gift certificate would prefer to buy a TV or appliances they will get half of the amount of the gift certificate to use on their appliance and/or TV purchase. For example: You buy a dining room table and chairs for $2000. You get a $2000 furniture gift certificate to give to a family member for the holidays. They can then select a new sofa and loveseat with the $2000 gift certificate or use the appliance/TV value of $1000 towards a new TV!
