I quickly parked into work...
and saw that a FORK was in my tire!!!!!!
|MY POOR TIRE :(|
The point of this post is not to make you feel sorry for me. I'm fine and so are my tires. On to my next point!
The next day I wanted to get new tires. BF and I went to Discount Tire and BF was looking for cheaper Goodrich tires he had seen online. I was being impatient and wanted to just buy them on the spot (we were buying 2). If we had walked out of there that day it would have costed me $200 out the door. BF dragged me out of there quickly because he wanted to do some research because he knew he had seen a better deal somewhere.
Usually I'm the one that researches for good deals and compares prices but for some reason I was just so impatient and had the BF not been there at all I would have just paid the $200. Finally the NEXT day, after BF called a few tire places, we finally found a place that offered the tires for cheaper and gave us a 10% discount for mentioning yelp AND a 10% discount for paying in cash. We saved $20 just by the discounts and overall I paid $130 out the door. That's $65 per tire :) They may not be Michelin tires but that's fine with me!
Have you ever saved money by being patient? Or got jipped from being impatient?
