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!

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.

    I heard a rumor that Golf Town in Canada is going out of business. They will be shutting stores and going online only. Has anyone else heard this? Is there any truth to it?

    Wood Bros Persimmon, has anyone done a comparrison of the distance that they managed to hit old Wood Bros drivers. I recently obtained a Kool Kat ads have found that it is only about 5-10 yards shorter than my gamer Callaway 815 Alpha. I have just turned 50 so grew up with persimmon and still enjoy playing them occasionally but most of the 50's clubs are about 20 yards behind , I normally carry the Callaway about 235-240 as my swing speed has come down to about 95mph. Would be interested...
