Quite frequently when we’re out hunting for good deals we find ourselves running into conflicting interests between our wants and our wallets. For example, every so often there is a HDTV that would be perfect for filling that void in our lives…you know…from that thing that just happened…that we would rather not talk about, and instead would prefer to mindlessly watch a bunch of sad movies on Netflix that we can REALLY relate to. Oh wouldn’t that be perfect right about now, but wait…this is a TWO PACK? Really? Who sells a two pack of HDTVs. We’ll tell you who. Meh.com. You know why? Because they know you want TWO, not because you need them, but because two is always better than one…and it’s Tuesday. What more of a reason do you need than that? None! That’s what we thought too…turns out our Master Card didn’t agree…probably shouldn’t have bought so many solo sushi platters, single serving steak microwaveable dinners (with double fudge brownie desert) and designer jeans with elastic waste bands. Anyways, back to the point. Two refurbished Emerson 39-inch HDTVs for only $300. (Man, we paid nearly $1,000 for our last 40-inch HDTV that now mostly consists of vertical lines full of dead pixels, lose HDMI ports, and speakers that only work part-time hours). Let’s face it, this is a killer deal…and for the financing…don’t worry about it! Simply follow meh.com’s 14 simple steps, which include finding a gullible friend or family member who wants a TV, convincing them that you have found the perfect deal for them…yada-yada-yada…they give you the cash. You buy the TVs, they get one, you pay nothing, (when the steps for redeeming your…um…eh hem…discount…have been followed) and they foot the entire bill due to their lack of being as suave and internet savvy as you. Ultimately they thank you, you remind them that “with great power comes great responsibility” or that “I didn’t ask for these astonishing deal finding powers, but now that I have them…I must use them for the greater good” and my personal favorite “you can thank me later…with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh”. **sniff sniff** mmm…smells like success to me.
