    Just bought two for me and one for a co-worker.

    Big Lots/Odd Lots/McFrugal is selling three different Targus laptop bags (advertised on Nat'l Television).

    I've looked up these cases on Targus.com and found that the "thinner" one that they sell (two compartment) retails for $79.99 and the other two they sell (a Top-Loading Air Universal Case and an Imitation Leather Universal Notebook Case) retails for $99.99.

    All three are $17.99 each while they last. ;)

    B&M = Bargain Madness?

    No. Different retailer. Same concept.

    Big Lots is just Big Lots, Odd Lots, McFrugal and Pic N' Save.

    Oh! OK. Because there's a similar type store in New England called B&M Bargain Madness. :)

    Yes... It's "Brick and Mortar", although down here in Florida, they're typically "Concrete and Stucko".

    You guys need to get out more anyway. Online shopping is NOT the only way to score a bargain. ;)

    Not to drag this thread up, but I'll try to swing by the Big Lots in Kennewick, WA this weekend and see if these things are really any good. Thanks for the post!

    I was able to pick one up here in IN. Nice deal considering Targus cases can easily run $80-90
