Trade In an Old Video Game for a New Tent
Kids who play video games are fat, anti-social, and overly violent, right? Not necessarily, but that's what many people think, so outdoor "sporting" equipment retailer Bass Pro Shops is capitalizing on this misperception for a sales event happening next week.
Bring in an old video game, any old thing you like, and get 15-percent off of your purchase at the store. The idea is, of course, to get kids outside instead of holing up on the couch on a beautiful summer day, but if you were already looking to make a purchase there, this is a great way to save some money. Just stop at your local video game retailer and buy the cheapest used game you can find. Instant discount, and the sort of lazy frugality that would make any gamer proud.
