5 minutes of research saved us $520
I got a flat tire the other day at work. No idea how it happened, I was leaving work for my midnight break to go get some Jack in the Crack when it happened ;(
I was really craving some curly fries and 2 tacos for 99 cents. Waaah!
The Subaru Forester is all-wheel drive so that means that all the tires should be the same when replacing them. The problem is that they stopped production of these tires awhile ago so they are VERY hard to get a hold of.
One shop quoted us $290.
FOR ONE TIRE!!!!!!!! I think I almost had an MI! AND it wouldn’t be there for a week.
Therefore, we resulted to what most other frugal families would do: CRAIGSLIST!!!
Low and behold there was an ad for the same tires we needed at the frugal price of $75 per tire. Not bad!
Husband called, asked if the tires were still available and for how much.
Yes, they were still available AND for $30 each! We bought two which equals $60, just in case I happen to get another flat. Such an awesome deal! Saved us $520 if we had gone with the crazy guy.
I love craigslist! They sell weird stuff I need everyday!
Questions for you: Ever scored on a killer deal on craigslist or ebay? Ever sold something weird that you never thought would sell?
Thanks for stopping by!
