I was just about to ask the same thing...

My impression is that it's legit, but sneaky. They still charge ~10% of what would be the total price, as a handling + shipping fee, and that 10% can add up.

Went through the process -- didn't buy anything but you're right, the "fee" is about 10% of their "price." For what I looked at the price averaged out to about $12 per item, which is probably about what they're worth....

Problem is, I don't need 4 pair of sunglasses...

I saw the same ad. Something just doesn't seem right. I mean I don't think it is a scam or anything like that, just not a warm fuzzy feeling about it. There was something similar to this last year that was in a different magazine, but the shipping was only $4.99, however, the cost of the items were in the $10-$30 range. Most of the sunglasses had the same trade mark, a red star on the temple (China?). Anyway, I passed then and I will pass now!

K, I believe that a massive miscariage of, well, if not justice, then at least a simple "WTF?" would be nice, LMAO

 

In clicking on the titles abaove the threads that will bring the threads up under various criteria, I clicked "by views," fully expecting to see Dan's "Distinguished Gentlemen" at the top, when, out of nowhere, there sits BarbaJo's "Gattaca One World.com" in the top spot with 77, 812 views.

 

And, it was posted on May 11th of THIS year(2013)!!

 

WTF?

 

And the topper?

 

This thread consists of two sentences, the second beon a question that as of this post is still unanswered & this is it's FOURTH frickin response, LMAO

 

Now, I'm about as close to havin "Man Love" for John as a heterosexual guy can have, but 77, 812 views?

 

On a TWO sentence post with THREE frickin responses(not counting mine)?

 

And not one of em answered the damn question,LMAO!!

 

Hell, by the time this falls offa the first page again, it'll turn 100, 000 views, easy, LMAO!

 

Well, the only thang that I can say, other than "Go John," is, when you guys are finished here, please go view my Tour Tempo II thread B)

 

Ya don't even have ta respond.

 

Just click  in and view,and hell, ya might learn somethin-

 

And BTW, I just gave away a few pairs of sunglasses, so I could definitely use four pair :D

 

And BuckeyeWalt, WTH?

 

We got some other threads worth postin in, and ya got a Buckeye kindred spirit in Mr_Theoo, so get the hell back in here :)

I'm guessing this was some buyers club deal where the internal costs and fees after set up are not worth it.

The page views were probably bot views off google based on the topic name.

    Spent this afternoon in a Golf----- checking out the equpiment. Can't afford to buy a bag of tees, so all we can do is dream. Used to do this in sporting goods stores when I was 12 , too. Now I'm 54. Nothing was really changed. All this great stuff and no money to buy it.

    Why do manufacturers put an iron equivalent on hybrids when the distances seem so much greater than irons. Surely it'd be better to just give lofts. Incidentally, perhaps irons should have degrees of loft on them instead of numbers too!
