Last year, I had printed off a picture of the wedding band I wanted. When we bought my e-ring in March, they stopped making my band in yellow gold, only in white gold now. Not a fan of white personally. I called in a few weeks ago with the model number of the yellow one, and they were going to search their other stores. Found one out on the west coast.
I get a call that it is in, and ask about the cost, because I knew it was on clearance. Regularly it was $599. Clearance (at the time I looked at it last year) was $429. I go in to pick it up yesterday, and the gal tells me there was an additional 70% off! The ring had been purchased, sized, and returned upon a broken engagement. So, with the lifetime diamond/resizing/retouching plan for $30, my $599 wedding band only cost $235 after tax and "lifetime warranty."
How cool is that! So now I just have to send it in for the resizing (free) and after we get married, I can send it in with my e-ring for the soldering (also free).
On the flip side, a tree fell in my yard and took out a power pole, fed power to my detached garage, and the remaining part of the tree is hollow, and could very well fall on my house in another good windstorm. Terrified of rain on the radar now.
