I tried to buy a Samsung refrigerator . A diasator day travelling to 4 stores. Misleading ads, dented. or " Let me check the inventory 3x". Went back to JD with nothing except a day lost which I can't afford as I leave for the States tomorrow.

Paint,Paint and Paint. I bought about 20 gallons of different paints and got about 40% reduction of the original price. Now I'm very busy before christmas....

Where does one go to buy these? A local pollera? It’s something I never even knew was sold.
Yes. Pollera. I usually get a decent size bag for 30 pesos. Put them in the freezer and give one or 2 frozen. They love them. Also, when we pass any pollera Buenagente, my big male, will bark to announce his presence and they usually throw my dogs a few heads to enjoy right there.

Everything. That's why it's important to ship your 200+ stuff by itself.

Did they still had "the deal of the year?"

I'm talking about the casket company that for one Black Friday had the deal of buy one casket, get one free. True story. lol

It's good to have a couple of caskets around. Never know when suddenly you need it.

Can't remember as I wasn't properly notified. Recall some junk emails mentioning something about it, maybe next year.
