The Truth about As Seen on TV Products
If you are an insomniac like me then you have most definitely been awake some mornings between 3 and 5am bearing witness to the host of infomercials that are so often thrown your way. Some of us swear that everything we see is a scam, others take the time to digest the facts and then make an educated purchasing decision. I have to admit that in the past I was definitely someone who preferred the former but overtime I have come to enjoy the latter. The reality is that you really do get what you pay for in this life and these types of products are certainly no different. If you are expecting to get a gold bar type of an item for just $19.99 plus shipping and handling then you’re out of your mind. If however your willing to make out with a product that serves its purpose albeit without using the highest quality materials then these auctions are for you.
The first piece of merchandise that I ever purchased off of the television was the gyro bowl. I had seen the infomercial on tv and then began to scour the internet for as seen on tv product reviews. Eventually I found some good ones and they all corroborated what the original commercial had said which is that the gyro bowl has the ability to hold a wide variety of items without any of them falling out. After purchasing the product I began to use it for the holding of paper clips, nails, bolts, screws etc. Obviously it was to be sold as something for kids to hold food with by I am not a child nor do I have any so it was not going to serve that purpose in my household.
Over the years I have purchased a variety of other as seen on tv products ranging from get rich quick with real estate schemes, to creams, to tools, and everything in between. It would be unfair to say that every item i’ve received has done something for me as the reality is that some of them have offered more value than others. The reality however is that you are generally able to secure a large variety of products at prices that are really tough to beat.
The key is to never just buy a product for the sake of purchasing it, rather you should do your research and ensure that you are buying something worth buying as opposed to purchasing something that is a piece of junk. Many folks have recommended as seen on tv product reviews.org as a great site to go if you are interested in learning more about a wide variety of products and I have to agree. However their are many other similar sites so do not limit yourself to just one.
Be sure to comment in the future with the products that you have purchased and let others know what works and what does not!
