My Gold Box…

Well, they let me down again. Here are the amazing and awesome contents *cough* *cough* of the Gold Box full of things you would never buy:

:: Outdoor Recreation Tool Set List: $49.99; Our Price: $34.99; Gold Box Price: $29.74
:: Vanilla Sky (DVD) List: $29.99; Our Price: $18.99; Gold Box Price: $5.70. $5.70!!! Damn, did they end up with 10,000,000 copies that they need to move fast?
:: American Tool Strait-Line Laser Line Generator No list; Our Price: $49.97; Gold Box Price: $34.48.
:: Shop-Vac 1.5 HP Wet/Dry Vacuum List: $49.99; Our Price: $44.99; Gold Box Price: $38.69.
:: Drill Doctor Precision Drill Bit Sharpener List: $169.99; Our Price: $129.99; Gold Box Price: $116.99. Irony? I’ve never owned a drill in my life and wouldn’t have a clue how to use one even if I did.

Yeah, they missed the mark this time. By a long shot.

They always miss the mark with me! If they had offered my Black Hawk Down (like they’ve offered so many others) I would have bought it in an instant! Instead I get cooking supplies (as if I don’t have enough already) … I think the Gold Box is just a way of selling whatever they have too much of or whatever doesn’t really sell at all.

Mine is all stuff I really really want, but couldn’t afford anyway, never mind as an impulse purchase. A $400 monitor that usually sells for $750 is still a $400 monitor. :oP
