I just saw an add for one of those No!No! hair remover things and it got me thinking.  Hav eyou ever purchased something off the television?  I am not talking about seeing something on a commercial and going to the store and buying it, but actually seeing it on tv and calling in and purchasing it from the number on the screen.  If yes, what did you purchase?  If no, is there anything you would like to purchase?

Years ago I bought some cassettes from the TV. It was "Freedom Rock" and the commercial was THE cheesiest ever, it's on You Tube, I'm sure.  I can't remember anything else I've actually bought but I almost bought one of those goofy Slap Chop gadgets from Vince "You're gonna love my nuts" Offer, lol.

I never have. I've heard of too many problems when ordeing that way....not receiving the item, being over charged and then having a very hard time trying to get the charges taken off, all of a sudden being charged monthly subscriptions.....

No, I never have. For one thing I don't want them getting my address.  But also I'd rather give the item a good look over before buying. I have bought a few things that I saw in an ad but at a store, and I've been happy with one of them anyway- the one you slip under the door to keep drafts out.  Some other things that I've seen that people have bought are not very good,  sandwich lifters, sweaters.
