    Is there a link to purchase the headphones?

    Where’s the purchase link for the Altec Lansing Noise Reducing Headphones? Was it buried in the review somewhere?

    Good lord. That meat… there’s so much meat. For so little. Money well spent. I’ll let you guys know if Omaha Steaks is awesome or not when they get here (in about a week).

    You know, I thought this deal watch was lame when Consumerist first launched. But I’ve actually seen some pretty excellent offers in this space and bought from several.

    Thanks, Consumerist!

    It may be good to notify people that is notoriously crappy. I’ve had my own unhappy dealings with them, but I think most people agree.

    …..I’ll stick to my Creek Headphone Amp and Sennheisers, thanks anyway. When the volume knob goes up, not even the tornado sirens will get through.

    …..I’ve been given Omaha Steaks before, as gifts from well-meaning relatives. They (the steaks, I mean) were nice looking (nearly inch thick cuts, good!), but very, very dry! I like my rare steak to bleed when I stab it with a fork. If I liked dry, I’d stick to chicken breasts.

    … is a crapshoot. I’ve gotten some amazing prices from time to time via them, but I’ve read a lot of horror stories.

    Uh, the Omaha steaks deal doesn’t include any sole, and there are only 4 franks, not 8. But it’s still a pretty good deal.

  8. Juancho says: sucks ass.

    I placed an order for 3 paperbacks from them a couple of years ago. They were all Penguin “Modern Library” classics. Two of the books were slightly older editions, and 1 had a big crease in it. They wouldn’t take them back.

    They advertise 10% off Amazon prices for books, but I’d be wary…

    Oh we posted the wrong Omaha Steaks link. It’s been updated and changed. Enjoy your carnivoring!

    I just followed the link from your site to for the Altec Lansing AHP712i Headphones with Active Noise Reduction deal. The page you link to says the item is in stock, but I noticed that when I clicked the BUY NOW link, my shopping cart would not update, even if it would do so for other items.

    I did a search on their site for Altec-Lansing, and wouldn’t you know it, the availability for that product in Search Results says it is “Currently Unavailable.”

    Some deal! The least they could do is update the product’s actual page so you don’t drive yourself crazy trying to figure out why your multiple browsers are failing you.
