Deal Of The Day, Week, Month, Year???

I was a bad girl, but did soooo well! I think this may end up being my best shopping deal in a long time!
I was on the internet looking to buy, of all things, underwear. And since we get a discount at Federated stores, I was looking at Macy's. Well, I guess they have door buster (block buster?) deals. I can't remember exactly what they call them, but website "specials". I have often thought that "if it sounds too good to be true" then yes, it likely is. But when I saw their online special I really thought it might be worth trying out. After all, I could always return it if I didn't like it, right?
Well, I know it was a splurge, but I just decided "what the heck!" and ordered it. It's a 100" (no- no typo there- I said 100 inch!!!) strand of 7-8 mm cultured pearls. They are beautiful! If I put them on and stand up, they go all the way down to my shin! (And at 5'8", I am not all that short.) So, they look awesome wrapped 3 times. Still nice and long.
Anyway- are you ready for this? Can you see the tag on them? It says $500.00! But, after the discount, they came to just $80.00! So, happy early birthday to ME! :-)
(In one photo they look kind of yellow, but in reality they are like the other pic. Really pretty!)
