Lydia and I will be sure to take advantage of this for all of our back-to-school needs!
Seriously, this is a great move. There are a LOT of our personal discretionary dollars that leave our state because we're trying to save the 9.25% fee that is tacked on top of whatever we purchase. Heck, I might even buy a computer locally that weekend (if I can save up that aformentioned sum.)
props to Christina for the tip!
