Few years ago, i watch to tv, and i saw there a book with great advices to lose weight. I want to say that even now i have this book, who really help me, and after i help many persons around me to understand why peoples take weight, and how can learn to live healthy and lose weight in same time; I want to say that i am not a person who trust in teleshopping, are many things there who are really not good, is just a trick for them to earn more money...but one time i was lucky; after i try again, and of course that i give money for nothing. Do you ever buy something from tele shopping, command a product?do you really trust?

Weight loss programs are a big no no. as a weight watcher I have come to this conclusion. Whetehr it is on TV or otherwise. Secondly the joy of shopping is in the activity rather than just watching on TV and ordering. Not for me for sure .

Hi, icesmile Nope, I do not trust teleshopping. My mother and I ordered a belt for the abs before. It turned out that there are other add-ons on the price they flashed on tv screens. When their product arrived...well, let's just say it did not trim our abs as they promised. We never complained because it was our fault, anyway, for believing them

I made the mistake once about ordering a removable rack for my sewing things... My daughter found it cute and fashionable. Whola! For the next two or three years, so many companies had been calling me about their products, including credit cards. It was painstaking.

If I buy something off television it is from QVC or HSN. They are both reliable shopping networks, many times offering free shipping and they stand behind their products. If you ever have a problem with the product or just don't like it and change your mind, they include a return shipping label to make it easy for you to return it. They also don't harass you with other products either. If there are products from the infomercial that I am interested in, I will look at the stores locally that offer these products. No shipping or handling and you can take them right home. I love gadgets and have found many very useful products that I really like and use all the time. They have been well worth the money I spent for them. It's nice to know that I can go to a store just down the road and find the products that I'm interested in and pay no shipping or handling.

Approximately 5+ years ago my husband brought me desktop computer and I must say I was very impressed with the amount of stuff that came with it. I got a free printer because of the purchase which to this day, they both work.

I have never bought anything from television. If I am interested in a product I see, I wait until it comes out in the store and then take a closer look at it. Let's face it, nine out of ten times, that great product we see on television is not all that great once we get a closer look at it.

i have bought something ive seen one tv and it proved to be a good reliable product but the actual transaction was a pain. they kept trying to sell me extra stuff and tell me about "limited time offer!". my advice is if you do buy something from an infomercial just tel the person you are in a hurry and have only a couple minutes to buy the product or no deal.

My husband has bought a lot of interesting things off of infomercials, some things that have made our lives a lot easier, other things that have just been rip-off's and of no use to us, a total waste of money. I have only ever bought music off of infomercials, never household products.
