(Just Pay Shipping and Handling)

Sounds like a good deal doesn’t it? You have just seen something being offered on television for what seems to be a bargain price. It may not be anything you had been seeking to purchase or had even thought about until you saw the commercial. However, you have always been attracted to a bargain. You have always been careful about how you spend your money.

The formerly famous actor spokesperson or perhaps the owner or “CEO” of the company making these outstanding offers seems so sincere. Maybe a little over the top, but after all, they don’t want you to miss this limited-time-only offer.

If you call within the next ten minutes or order using the promotional code number shown on the screen, you will get the special price. I admit that this ten minute challenge confuses me when I see the same commercial for weeks and weeks. Which ten minutes were they referring to? May it already be too late? Did I miss my opportunity to save?

Some offers may come with a second item at half the promotional price (or maybe even for free). Imagine! For a limited time, you can get two items (that you had not been seeking or needing) for the price of one. JUST PAY SHIPPING AND HANDLING!
