The Return of The Gold Box

I hadn't posted my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers in quite some time, so I thought I'd share them even though I didn't buy anything.

.: Hoover F5866-900 SteamVac Deluxe Carpet Cleaner: we're not in the market for a vacuum, so pass.

.: Krups 229-45 10-Cup Aroma Control Coffeemaker with Thermal Stainless Steel Carafe and Programmable Timer: I don't drink coffee, so no need for this. Pass.

.: Panasonic PV-C1332W 13" TV/VCR Combo (White): I can't see anywhere in the house this would be useful.

.: Canon BJC-85 Portable Color Bubble Jet Printer: I'm very happy with my current printer, so pass.

.: Sabatier Prosteel 7-Piece High Carbon Stainless Steel Knife Set with Block: this was a great deal on this set, but we already have all the knives we need.

.: Logitech Cordless Rumblepad (USB): I don't play any games were I would use one of these. Pass.

.: JVC HACD71FB Folding Walkman Replacement Headphones with Pouch (Blue): the only headphones I use are the ones at my desk at work. I don't need any more.

.: Krups 872-42 Bravo Plus Espresso Maker: again, I don't drink coffee or similar drinks.

.: Cuisinart ICE-40BK Flavor Duo Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker: this looked really cool, but since I bought Steven a Cuisinart ICE-20 1-1/2-Quart Automatic Ice Cream, Frozen Yogurt & Sorbet Maker for Christmas, totally not needed.

.: AudioSource IC5S Round Ceiling Speakers: we've got all the speakers we need, at least for now.

.: Posted February 16, 2003 05:59 PM in The Gold Box, ";print substr($entry_cats, 0, -2); ?> :.

By the way - that's not a vacuum. It's a carpet steamer, and it ROCKS. My mom has one and I love using it - it makes my carpets look like new!

I used to post my Gold Box offers too, until I figured out a couple of things. Not only do they not offer items you might actually like (which they could do, using their Recommendations feature), but they offer almost exactly the same things to everyone. The Gold Box has a lot of potential as a moneymaker, but until they offer me things I might actually want to buy, I'm not going to purchase anything!
