Though we are not buying directly viewing any add but indirect buyer are influenced with add. Add has some positive aspect too. We are getting some information from the add. So add has some indirect effect in sale promotion. It is nit right to say in a word that add are false and meaningless.

yes it is right that some companies uses add to cheat consumer. They make attractive add with wrong information about the product. But as a consumer we have right to inform broadcasting authority about fake add. No company has the right to mislead consumer with wrong information on the product.

Hello gjax57, In my experience mostly stuff seen on TV are really work but some are not that's why you must choose the better and check if it works better. Just try to check carefully and make it sure that you buy the good one. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.

Sometimes I do. Usually I wait for when the price goes down, it all depends what it is. If I have the money spare and the price is unlikely to fall by much I generally do go out and buy it. My wife often jokes about the fact when I see soemthing, she knows that I will end up buying it as I tend to talk none stop about certain things.

I don't like to buy too many things that are offered on TV. i'm just not sure I believe in their worth. i like to try things out for myself before i buy something.

I rarely buy anything that I see on television. Mostly, because of the fact that I avoid watching commercials and anything on television like the plague. There are a lot of things on television that annoy me and the repetitive nature of commercials do. Especially those products that you cannot find in stores, but really that is a lie sometimes. I find them at the dollar general store, which really tells you the worth of some of the things. Still I think there was only one thing where I bought something off of television. It was some old time music CDs and really this was pretty much a moment of weakness on my part. Still the music was good. I think that those miracle products on there, those are the real things you got to steer from. Really any product that promises the world and is better, I would be a tad bit suspect about. But then again that is just me and my paranoid nature.

Well, I don't really like ordering something I can't hold in my hand and actually see. Most of the time it looks different once y ou get it than it did on tv as they do things to make it look just perfect... lighting, background..things like that. A necklace hangs on a perfect neck...an outfit is modeled on a perfect body...things like that. Once in "normal life" the item doesn't seem to be what it seemed to be on TV! Plus... you have to pay shipping which is always high and if you don't like it..you pay shipping to return it and are only refunded on the actual purchase price so your shipping costs both ways is just money down the drain.
