I got the best email in the Daily Cheapskate inbox this morning. I love it when readers "out-frugal" me! This very clever reader took a great sale and promo code and remembered what I had written before about Lowe's/Home Depot competitor's price-matching, which I had totally forgotten, and "did me one better." Here's the email ( (I added the links):
Dear Daily Cheapskate,
I out-frugaled you! Do you remember yesterday when you posted about that freezer chest at Home Depot for $168 with the promo code? Well, I did you one better. I remembered what you said in the past about Lowe's price-matching plus 10% guarantee, and I took a screenprint of the freezer in my Home Depot cart online showing the price to my Lowe's and they price matched it and beat it by 10%! I got it for $151.20! Hah!
