It's officially "holiday time," and if you're savvy, that can mean some good deals.


Take this, for example. Walgreens is doing a buy one, get one free sale on Magic packs, and that sounds exactly like value to me. Maybe it's a gift or maybe it's just for you, but it's hard to pass up value if you're in the market for packs.

Another interested point raised here is the "price-match" guarantee. Wal-Mart, for instance, price-matches deals like this if there's a posted price. While the linked Walgreens ad doesn't show a listed price, it's possible you can find some better signage in-store and then get one of the big-box retailers to match.

Your mileage may vary. But there's always a chance! 'Tis the season of value.
