Vigorous Competition: Often Bad For Workers, But Good For Consumers

I have been looking at buying a larger expansion drive -- perhaps a 2 TB drive.  I saw this Seagate 3 TB drive offered on Amazon at $109.07 -- but when I was at Target last night, I saw the same drive being offered for $119 -- and because of a 10% off deal, it would have been within pennies of the Amazon price.  (Okay, including sales tax, within several dollars of the Amazon price.) 

No, I didn't buy it.  Perhaps I will see how low they go at the after-Christmas sale.

After Christmas is always good. That's why we also include the old-fashioned gift-giving on Epiphany (6 January) to try to beat the retailers at their own game.
