Tell me...this new pricing thing that JCPenney has going on...am I just not "getting it" or does it seem to anyone else that, if anything, you are NOT saving money there? I thought the whole premise of the color coding, "one price" to-do was so that we consumers could save money "without having to carry a bunch of coupons around"?
I was skeptical of it from the get go, but I'll admit, I'm a sucker for a "good deal"...or even just thinking that I'm getting a good deal (as in, maybe the prices are higher but with a coupon I feel like I'm getting a bargain...you know?), but yesterday, my skepticism was turned into full blown belief that I was NOT indeed saving more money.
Case in point: 2 jeans for Dubya, socks, a shirt and shoes came to 130 bucks. Seemed to me that I recall being able to get much more than that for that amount of money before, but I paid it, and we carried on with our day.
Until Old Navy. Glorious, wonderful $10 jeans Old Navy. Where, for a mere $60+ dollars we were able to get 4 (yes, FOUR!!) pairs of jeans, a pair of khakis, and a sweatshirt...and walk away with $30 in "Super Cash" to spend later.
Dear Old Navy,
I love you. You kinda, really, already had me, but today's experience? It's like we just exchanged vows and I'm yours forever and ever now.
