    Default Possible Jackpot...Need Advice!

    After someone else's post, I stopped at our TJ Maxx and found a possible treasure trove...

    I bought Bvlgari pour Homme 1 oz for 19.99 and Kenneth Cole New York 1.7oz for 19.99 and left before I went crazy and grabbed too much more..

    The rest of the story...


    M7 was 4.99 (!)
    Burberry Brit was 29.99
    Burberry Weekend was 16.99
    Bvlgari Blv was 19.99
    Diesel Zero Plus was 14.99
    Diesel Green was 14.99
    Armani Night was 19.99
    Kenneth Cole Reaction was 24.99
    Escada Sentiment was 14.99
    Boss Bottled was 24.99
    Perry Ellis 360 and 360 White were 14.99
    Halston 1-12 was 9.99
    Bijan DNA was 16.99
    Escada Homme was 14.99
    Guess Man was 29.99
    DAvidoff Good Life was 16.99
    and Pure Vetiver was 16.99


    Did I do ok...and did I leave any fabulous deals other than the M7? What should I go back and grab? Most of the bottles were sealed in cellophane so I didn't get to sniff at em...

    Are you sure this wasn't the aftershave or the body wash? I know there is both a regular aftershave and an aftershave balm ... I'm not sure whether the regular aftershave is spray or not.

    I looked at your wardrobe, and judging from your likes I would have suggested these:

    Burberry Weekend
    Diesel Green
    and maybe Brit

    You did not post the sizes, but they still would be good buys.

    It didn't appear to be the aftershave. I will go back and look. I think I'm just going to get them and use them as trade fodder or something.

    Either Brit or Weekend looked like a small bottle, the other looked larger. I'll have to go back.

    Thanks Vijay!

    Man, I wish I could get a bottle of M7 for 5 bucks. I paid 4 dollars for a sample vial of M7 and M7 fresh.

    A lot of those things are at my local TJ Maxx/Marshalls, in addition to some other things as well at comparable prices. I let a 1.7 oz. Echo slip away for $9.99, and I instead decided to buy Tommy T for $19.99 because I thought it would be a better find - and I was right, T has disappeared around here completely since. These places make dept. stores just seem silly! I feel bad sometimes because I try things out at the mall and drive the SA's up a wall, and then I just wait until the things I like end up at Marshall's or Maxx for 1/2 price. ;D

    I went looking for M7 Fresh at TJ Maxx and Marshalls but didn't find any in my area. I did get a 3.4 oz bottle of Halston Unbound for $10.

    I bought the body wash there for that price.

    M7 EdT for 4.99? No way.

    I just walk in and out at Marshall's and TJ Maxx. Though take your time reading the box. I almost grabbed M7 aftershave due to the huge price sticker covering the front of the box with a real low price on it.

    Please don't get your hopes high. M7 at $4.99 is only the body wash. Yes, I'm positive. They also have the Bulgari Black bar soap at $3.99!
