Being [I admit it] a reasonably well paid urban professional of sorts, I of course cannot be bothered with top loading anything. No, I must have the most ridiculous microprocessor controlled Laundry System™ I can possibly find, preferably with a funny European name and a small backlit dot matrix display. Either that or something Korean with FUZZY LOGIC stamped all over it. After a couple days' shopping with Dan, we settled on the Bosch set they have at Lowe's. Although still insanely expensive - I think it cost about as much as my first motorcycle - it is in fact cheaper than similar Kenmore sets at Sears, so I figure it's not that bad.
Cheaper is better, though, so... Hello Google! Is there a coupon to be had? And, well, no. But wait! If you pay the USPS $1 to change your address, you can print out an e-coupon. Boom, I've changed my address from San José to Salmonberg again, and printed out my coupon. It'll save me $200 on the set, so yay. Go us!
