Nothing Organic about a Food Sealer...but
I've been shopping Food Sealers for about two years. Just could not pull the trigger. So, last weekend, a local department store had a sale that included a 15-30% discount at the register ON TOP of the sale price. So, I rushed over to the store to find the item was marked up by $30 (back to suggested retail) and sale priced to about $3 more than they had it marked before, and $40 more than their previous sale price. Got it so far? In essence, they had calculated that the BEST you could do was get within $5 of the internet price of this item...had they left the price the same, you could have beat the internet price by $30...trust me on the math. Since this is the third time I have watched this store do this over the past year, I went home. I also closed my account with them.
Got on the internet and found THIS BEAUTY for $65, used three times...arrived this week and works like a wonder! Glad I held out, now I bought this for less than half the internet price and one third what I would have paid the retail store. And retailers wonder WHY their business is declining? My Freezer is FULL of freshly vacuum sealed meat now! Keep On Eggin'
