    Default But wait! You'll get a bonus second set for free! - As Seen on TV

    Okay, admit it, you bought some gadget off the TV.

    I got the Miracle Blade III (I love it), the Aquaglobes (I love it too but not good for orchids regardless of the picture), Snuggie (got 2 of them), the Topsy Turvy tomato planter (which worked until the squirrels ripped the cloth), the Hip Hop Abs DVD set (love it - that guy's gotta be on some kind of happy juice).

    I got the Set-it-and-forgot-it that I forgot immediately after one use... I got the Minimax (exercise machine that I used for 3 days and never touched again), the "I can't remember the name of that painter-roller thingee where you put the paint in the stick of the roller" that I used for 3 minutes because when you put the paint in the stick it becomes so heavy that my wrists can't handle more than 3 minutes of painting...

    Right now, I'm looking at the TV and it is playing Chefdini. Looks really cool... but, yeah, it says it can make salsa in 5 seconds... and of course, they forget to mention that you first have to chop all these veggies before you put them in the Chefdini... so, as I'm such an idiot in the kitchen, it will probably take me an hour to chop the stuff, then 5 seconds to twirl in the Chefdini.

    So, how about you guys? Do you buy stuff off the TV?

    To be honest! NO!! I am too sceptical to think they do what the advert says. I mean Magic Sponge?? cleans everything in one wipe....crayon off walls, grease from ovens, the barbeque? No Way!!

    I don't buy off the TV ads either. I would rather buy from a store so I can touch and feel it first.

    I don't watch tv too much. I have a few things tivo'd that I watch on occasion, but that's about it.
    Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.

    WHAT???? How can you resist the Hip Hop Abs by Shaun T! And the George Foreman Grill! And the Ped-Egg and the Heel-tastic (oh, I forgot to mention, I bought those too, lol)... and the velcro thing that changes the length of your pants so you can wear high heels and low heels with the same pair?

    I mean... especially when they're only 1 payment of $9.99... but wait! If you call in the next 5 minutes, you can get the Shark steamer for free!

    yeah I've bought the bottle toppers that turn your can of soda into a bottle that has a cap on it! Other than that, no. And those do work by the way!

    I bought the ped-egg...like it. I also bought the ShamWOW! lol. Yes, that works too! But honestly, I am pretty skeptical myself so usually I just like to laugh at whichever spokesperson happens to be selling it. lol

    I almost bought one of those!

    I also bought Smooth Away - that thing you just "wipe" to your legs to shave. That was crap. Didn't work. It actually "sands" your hair off your skin which makes the area super sore and there are still some hair left!

    Oh yeah. I bought one of those too! My husband uses it for drying the car. I actually bought it after that spokesperson guy got arrested for beating up a prostitute or something...

    Yeah, my husband just asked me after I asked him if I can buy the Chefdini... "Do I need to put parental controls on your TV?". LOL! I actually don't watch much TV. I keep it on while I work because - working from home all by your lonesome gets me cabin fever if I don't hear "chatter" in the background. And infomercial channels are very "chattery".

    @anatess, the town I used to live in actually had a store called "As seen on TV" the whole store was full of informercial items. You would have loved it!! I have never bought off TV, although the commercials intrigue me. Our Walgreens has a section as seen on Tv items as well. I did buy the ped-egg and loved it, but did it to much and had a very sore foot for a few days. LOL
