Sweet, another recap!  Keep 'em coming!

It's curious how the prices of some of those items changed so frequently.  The carpeting went from $450 to $350 in just two weeks?

Steve, were the contestants given a range to guess the prce of the car in Double Bullseye?

That's a good question.  There isn't one listed, but there's not one listed in #0044D, either, and we know one was given that day.

...and actually, that throws into question whether a range was provided for Bullseye on #0024D.  At this point, I'd say one probably was and it just wasn't recorded.
