My New Serger!
With a big purchase like this, I waited and waited and finally, the waiting paid off. A few days after Thanksgiving, one of the sales on Joann's was an online only serger deal, with a $300 serger on sale for $129. Since it's a business expense it's tax deductible for my store. Then I went through ebates (I know, I know, ebates!), which was offering double the percentage of cash back at that moment at 10% (I don't think I ever mentioned this, but my ebates rebate was over $120, so it really does work! It will be far less this time without the moving expenses I'm sure!). And I thought I'd gotten a pretty good deal, with the serger being knocked down to around $117. Yesterday I got an email from Mastercard, for a promotion I'd signed up for, saying that I'd gotten a $20 Mastercard gift card as a result of the purchase too! Knocking down the final serger price to $97 (shipped).
So I'm pretty excited. I just finished making up the rush that came in after Thanksgiving (yay!) so now I can take the time to try and figure the new machine out! Hopefully it won't be too confusing!
