Just for fun: Have any of you ever ordered anything from an infomercial? I found myself sucked in one night and was pretty tempted to buy these hair curling shells. I didn’t end up getting them, but boy was I temped…
So, if you voted “yes”… what did you buy and did you ever use it?

No, but I’ve bought As Seen On TV things at the store. My favourite one is probably the pasta boat and it took me like two years of randomly looking to find one, haha.

I’ve never bought anything from an infomercial, but I used to love watching them when I was in my early teens. I haven’t seen any in years, though.

I don’t think I have. I always want to, but only figure I’d give the other to my mom.
I always HATED the solid flavor injector segment of the Showtime Rotisserie. It gave me the heebie-jeebies.

Sort of. We bought a Cat Genie that we saw on an infomerical, but purchased it from the website. It ended up being a POS!

I bought the Ped Egg, but from Rite-Aid, not from TV. And the Pocket Chairs for our Family Yankee Christmas Swap, but I got those from Five Below.

I haven’t, but I’ve purchased things from the As Seen On TV Store! Most notably, a Sham-Wow for Fiance, haha. He actually went as the Sham-Wow guy (Vince) for Hallowe’en a couple years ago!

I haven’t, but my mom and I were watching tv one day and she fell in love with this cross necklace that was on a jewelery infomercial. We were on vacation and she had a few glasses of wine with dinner so she ordered the necklace without even thinking twice about it LOL! Turned out to be absolutely gorgeous. I am too skeptical though to buy from infomercials!

I haven’t from the commercials themselves but I have bought them when I see them in the stores. Most of them sucked, but every once in a while you get a gem.
Best thing I have bought
I didn’t use it on my underarms, but for my legs it was amazing! You can use it too much, but if used in moderation, if makes my legs so soft.
What a POS this thing was and a waste of $20.

My mom bought me a Snuggie, but I think she got it from WalMart instead of ordering it. I love my snuggie, it’s so toasty.

I always dreamt of buying the revo-styler (rotating hair brush), but never did.
I have bought a ped egg, a smooth away, a snuggie, and the best purchase which was bare minerals. All of them “sold me” with their infomercials, but all were purchased in a store like bed bath and beyond.

Haha. I’ve bought from the “As Seen on TV Store” too, but never called in. I have to be honest, I fall victim to these things all the time. When I was younger I was seriously obsessed with watching infomercials and I convinced my parents mom to buy the following:
-Nads Waxing Kit (they lied… it did hurt)
-George Foreman Grill
-Dr. Ho Muscle Relaxer
I’ve gotten much more skeptical as I’ve gotten older, but I still love watching them. Call it a guilty pleasure!

@tksjewelry: I’ve been wondering about the Smooth Away! I’ll have to pick it up. Fiance will probably roll his eyes at me like he did with the Pasta Boat, lol.

@Aure: Careful not to use it to much, you would give yourself “rug burns” with it if you do. I made that mistake once and it hurt like a biotch.
