Missed a laptop on sale


I wanted to buy a thinkpad laptop and yesterday I saw it was 100€ off, so today I went in shop only to see it has original price again. It makes me so angry and sad, if I only knew the sale ended today I would've bought it yesterday. I will still probably buy it because I need a laptop but something like this really makes me feel bad.

I tried to buy a laptop for my mum for her birthday and Christmas present a few days ago because she found one she wanted on sale, but when I went to the website and added it to the cart, the price went up by $110.

Its annoying, but Im sure there will be better ones that could even have better prices.

I have learned the hard way that when you see a really good sale, grab it right away. They never last long and they usually end the next day.

I rarely buy anything for myself so I guess spending a little more than I could've won't hurt me that much, since I've saved enough money and I also need the laptop for my school. It's a lesson and I will probably be even more careful with money from now on.

That sucks. If it helps, Amazon Prime day is coming up.

**** you and your mandatory custom signature.

There's so many laptops out there, and sales are always popping up - keep your eye out and you'll probably find another good deal very soon!x

I was very lucky to see that the laptop came back on sale. I even found an additional coupon so in total I got it anout 120 off. It feels like I died and came back to life

That stinks for sure. I missed a good deal on prime day because the price went back up before prime day ended. But Christmas is coming and there will be lots of great deals between then and now, so keep an eye out.

Sometimes my mind don't shake and shift, but most of the time it does.

Sales on expensive items like laptops usually just piss me off because the really good ones cost like 10 times more than they should in the first place. So when they go on sale, the discount is usually relatively paltry even though it seems like a lot. Like if you are trying to buy a laptop that costs $1500 at normal price, a $100 discount is kind of a joke because it's still crazy expensive for something that is mass produced in an automated factory and probably costs the manufacturer next to nothing in the grand scheme.
