8:32 am
starting with i want to you take look.e l we've got adsoo from 2014 that s 2016. 2016 let's get them up on your screes for you. do you notice anything a littlet bit similar when you look at lk these ads from years to yearo side by side? >> the scooters. >> for one. for one. >> the scooters have been around. actuall since 2013. that 49-dollar luggage set mustt be a heck of an investmenttment because that's been around foruf years. the air mattress has been arouno for years. the ping-pong table all of it is really quite similar. sim now that's not to say there aree no great deals at target thisge year. in fact, brad's deals points to an xbox one that was 299 now 249 plus a 40-dollar target giftgetf card but if you think you've got to, you know, knock down youryo neighbors to get to one of these scooters, keep in mind, they'll' be back next year because they y certainly have been around forh of the last four years. >> let's move on to j.c. penney.
8:33 am
look. lo let's get it up on your screen e because you'll notice somethingt very interesting and you'll see it the most with this colorful r knife set with some of the otheh cook wear take a look at at the actual graphics themselves. not only do the deals notea change, but do you notice the pictures don't even change fromf year to year? 17.99 these t knives have been.n. 17.99 or 14.99 depending whatina year you're looking at. so generally when you shop at j.c. penney for black can expect to find a red, blue u or green casserole pot for 255 bucks. a set of new cook wear for $30.0 so if you're worried about a really making sure that your dar starts there to snatch up these deals, they're not exactly as as rare as you might think that they are.ey are same deal over at kohl's. k take look. i want to you tell me what looks just a little bit familiar fromr year to year.yearo ye >> those mates.ho mates >> i think the plates.nk t pla >> those brightly colorful colfl
