TPiRecap: 21 April 2015

Late start today, but let's see if I can get through this...

Danger Price:
  1. Napoleon propane barbecue w/10pc utensil set (AL)
  2. Toshiba 17.3" laptop computer (16GB RAM, 250GB HD, Epson AIO; AL)
  3. Nautilus elliptical trainer (RR)
  4. Two pairs of Kate Spade designer shoes (RR)

The shoes look dangerous to me, but so does that barbecue... between the two of them, I say the barbecue is the one that needs to be avoided.

Danger Price: $2315

$3089
Computer

(Elliptical trainer: $1,499; Designer shoes: $773)

This is where I'm reminded that Kate Spade is the Chevy Spark of designer stuff. Even so, I wouldn't have figured that computer to be quite that pricey... if anything I would've put it at about what that elliptical went for.

2. The Kenwood Car Audio System of Less-Than-Subtle Foreshadowing, w/1yr satellite radio subscription (RR)

Not the best situation, but hardly a terrible one. This could still work, as long as Nicholas doesn't succumb to the Temptation of the 5 on this next call...

Balance Game:
Sea-Doo Spark 2-up watercraft w/trailer (RR)

 
The three options here are $5,998, $7,998, or $10,998. My gut and my head are at war over whether it's the $5K (head) or $7K (gut) option. Both reject $10K.

The gut wins, and so does Matraca!

In case you haven't noticed, all six stage players today got there by being the last to bid. This is what I'm talking about whenever I say being able to bid last is an advantage.

Bargain Game for two trips:
  1. ...to Charleston, SC (6n, Belmond Charleston Place, daily breakfast; RR)
  2. ...to Kooskia ,ID (6n, River Dance Lodge; AL)

The Distance Rule would suggest South Carolina would be the more expensive trip... but I think the Kooskia trip at $4,682 is still the bigger markdown.

Just about any other time, a thousand-dollar bargain would be a surefire winner in this game... but not today. Blindsided by an unexpectedly pricey South Carolina trip. --;
