Nautilus Clearance through Big Lots – Dec. 24, 2008
Thanks to Jason White for giving us a head-up on this. Nautilus is clearing out stock on their T516 treadmill with Big Lots. This was a $2799 retail machine at specialty retailers and is now selling for $1200 with shipping included through Big Lots- a clearance/liquidation retailer. With Nautilus’ recent quarter showing that they lost $35 million, apparently they are trying to raise some dough by clearing out stock quickly.
Deals on SportsArt – Dec. 23, 2008
Attention to all consumers and other interested parties, SportsArt
Fitness is attempting to move some product at incredibly low prices.
Costco is carying the E 80 ellitpical here to fore a $1599 MSRP for
$799 delivered to your home. For $1600 it was questionable at best, at $800 it is a pretty good deal. The only people that would probably object to this incredible discount is the three or four remaining SportsArt specialty dealers but I am sure that they will eventually get over it. (Please not the sarcasim in the last statement.) You can purchase the E 80 from Costco through the following link and please note that we will not receive any compensation to direct you to
