Are these genuine bargains, or a pile of garbage?
One of the great things about being a blogger for Wisebread is that I have a large community of people to call on for help and advice when I need it. So far I've rarely called on your sage advice, but today is different. I have stumbled upon quite a few deals in the last 24 hours and they all look good to me. But are they?
I have published my shopping list below. If you think the item is a good idea, I'll jump on it (and so should you if you want it). If you scream at me that I'm a moron for even considering such an obviously crappy buy, I'll avoid it. I'm hoping they are all steal, but hey, 2 out of 5 would be fine.
Every piece of common sense in my brain is screaming that this sytem probably sucks. But for $20, what if it really is a deal?
This one looks great. 500GB of storage from a known hardware maker like LaCie. But is this one a complete waste of cash?
Seriously, can this be all that bad? I know it's reduced from $70 to $10, and there must be a reason for that. But it looks like such a steal!
I usually trust KitchenAid, but why the huge drop in price on a great hand blender? Should my spidey-sense be tingling on this one?
I'm a sucker for tools. But I worry cheap tools will break and sever a finger or other appendage. Is this one a steal?
Well, that's my shopping list. Prices were correct when I published this article. If they have since gone up, I will obviously not be buying them anyway. I am a deal hunter after all.
