This site is free to all members. However, if you are a business trying to sell/advertise your product, you have to pay a fee to hang out here.

Lots goes into the Value equasion besides the product.
If everyone adopts your "Price is King" attitude, we all end up geting no service even when we only need a little, and paying a whole lot when we need a little more.
I apologizes to the members -- I was not aware
of the restrictions that states that the group
buys are designed only for paying advertisers.
Originally posted by davemac My colleagues and I
(involved with a financial product/service) jokingly refer to the
obsession of low price chasing, as the "Walmart Syndrome"- the theory
being that the large chain stores (Walmart/ Home Depot, etc) have
conditioned the consumer to primarily target price. Good for the
wallet- yes. But it comes at the expense of a lot of hard working,
knowlegable, merchants who give much better service.
Anyway, I appreciate Kruzo's efforts. I did get a glimpse at some of the prices b4 they were censored & didn't see much, if any, difference from HAW, so much of the stirrings appear moot.
I am curious, once he fixes it, won't yoursrpbep said:

Granted there appears to be a typo here [think admin meant to say "honda-pilot.org", not Acuramdx.org] which I bet he will fix now!!
BUT ... the message was there.
