Our suitcase

I kept meaning to blog about this and kept forgetting. When we were in Hay River planning on going home for vacation, I ordered 2 rolling carry-on suitcases for the plane from an online catalogue. I ordered 2, one for me and one for Rob. They were on sale for 20.00 each, which was a great deal. When the packages arrived, one was substancially heavier than the other. I double checked the label, and they were both mine and both labelled 21" rolling totes. When I got them home and opened them up, this is what the heavier package was. a 10 man Hilary 2 room tent. I kept it in the original box with the label on it, just in case it ended up on my bill the next month. My bill came, and it was only the 2 suitcases. Woo hoo! So, I ordered another suitcase (because at this point I only had 1 and needed 2), and secretly hoped for an air matress or a sleeping bag. :) But, I received what I ordered, and have never been billed for this. Dishonest? Yeppers. The alternative would have been to pay to ship it back to the company, and frankly I wasn't doing that. It's something we will get great use out of, and we joke that it was our "free gift with purchase". :)
