Figured the folks in HD would kill me if I posted this there. Look how much they are asking for a refurbished BestBuy mouse pad.

I forgot that around this time of year all the sites do this. Anyone remember the good ones from last year?

they sometimes change the price of something to an insane amount b/c stock is running low and they don't want to take it off the site (b/c then you can't add it to your notify list). Price will come down when stock increases.

that's my 2 cents.

I wrote a review "This pad is GOOD, but not great. I found that after a few days I went back to my plane jane $600 pad I bought last December, and it seems to work a lot better."

Sorry windog. You are correct. I just took a quick glance at the pad and saw the sticker.
Funny they dont sell them at the ABS site at any price.
