Have you ever purchased anything from infomercials?

Seems as I am seeing more infomercials in daytime television, not just late night TV, so I am wondering if anyone has actually purchased anything from infomercials?

  • My husband has. He's now banned from them!

    He bought a magic bullet from one when they first came out. In the end it cost us just over $200. He "couldn't say no" when they offered him the express shipping and the "two for the price of one." I'm thinking if I can buy the thing at Walmart for around $50 then $200 was NOT a BOGO.

    He also bought a flavor wave oven. Again, paid WAY too much for the thing. Granted he uses it and loves it, but still. So many of those things are available in stores not long after they air. Had he waited he could have saved over $150.
