Act Now!

Okay, Amy might kill me a little bit. I bought something I shouldn't have. While it isn't as bad as what Bill and I almost bought last weekend, I'll still be in hot water, because I didn't talk to her beforehand:

Kitchenaid Artisan Stand Mixer

So how much would you be willing to spend for this fabulous product? $250, like the price tag says? No, way! That's the sucker price!

If you act now, using the super-saver 20% coupon you received in the mail the day that your wife went to visit her family, we can get it down to $200! Unbelievable, but true!

Still too much? Hmmm, well, if you have a $50 gift certificate from a contest at work, you can get it down to $150! "Wow, $150," you say, "what a deal!"

But wait, there's more! Let's say you had a $50 credit from a returned Christmas present. Then this incredible mixer can be yours for only $100! "$100! Are you insane???" you ask. As you can probably tell, yes! I'm insane! Insane with savings!

And I'm not done yet! If you volunteer to help with someone's website, but they give you money anyway, then you can get this mixer, and all three included attachments for free!!! Incredible!

As we all know, it doesn't get cheaper than free.

Or does it???

Only because I like you, (and because Kitchenaid is currently running a promotion), you can send away for the attachment of your choice, for free. That's a $70 dollar value!

So, to recap, you get:
- The mixer
- The 3 attachments
- A recipe booklet
- Yelled at by your wife
- A free-by-mail attachment of your choice

A $320 value, all yours -- for free!!!

How could I pass that up? Personally, I think she should have been mad if I didn't take advantage of such a great offer.

P.S. Amy, I already licked it, so now we can't return it.

How can I possibly argue with something that can be used to make me brownies weekly for say...two months...until you're forgiven?

Yeah right, like the one out of work and going to the pool daily with two cute kids can even try to argue with such a bargain. :)

Just remember not to blame me, I'm the one who encouraged the carpentry and car repair class. Somehow I think the mixer is now the new toy of choice.

What? No Manufacturer's Rebate???? If you find one, then you'll actually make money on the purchase.

Suddenly I am apprehensive about my position as chief cookie baker. All these years, my Kitchenaid mixer has been my secret weapon...and now some computer geek has gone and pooped all over my parade.

I guess I'm just going to have to learn how to build Web sites. Yeah, that's what I'll do.
