While shopping at Bed, Bath and Beyond, Avi noticed an OXO salad spinner on the “as-is” clearance rack. Those are great products, so he investigated further. The $29.99 item was marked down to half off, $14.98, and then to half off that amount, $7.48. What a deal! There was, however, a catch. The spinning mechanism is broken. That makes it more of a colander with a weird lid.
Braxton came across a great deal while shopping for a new freezer. However, being a good Consumerist, he writes that he went home and researched the product before handing over any money. What he learned was that the freezer had no warranty…a fact that Home Depot conveniently forgot to disclose.
