Tickle Me Elmo! October 30, 2006

Posted by eburgess in The Challenge.

I found out that ToysRUs was taking pre-orders for the PS3 and the Wii on Sunday 10/29. I had been told that they had 6 PS3’s and 15 Wii’s. I knew I didn’t have a shot at a PS3, but I figured I might be able to snag a Wii, so I decided to take a chance. I got up early and got to the store at 5:45 am, and ended up 15th in line. While in line, I learned that ToysRUs also had over 100 Tickle Me Elmo’s going on sale and the line was also for that.

Well, long story short, they only had 13 Wii’s, and being 15th in line, well, you get the picture. But I ended up getting 2 Tickle Me Elmos, one of which I bought with my contest money. When I got home that afternoon, I put one up on eBay, and 24 hours later, I was 40.27 richer!

Guess who’s in the lead now!!

guys – love this idea, found you through a similar one of my own.
Looks like a marathon not a sprint though!
check out my blog (just started) for my challenge – you may pick up some tips from time to time?
