Bargain Hunters

 

Remember the first missive from Costco that caught my attention?

And my astonishment that they actually argued with me when I asked them to please not send me political items?

At least this time I had to laugh when I got an email from Costco:

Umm, whaaaaaat?

 

Curious, I opened the email to find this:

Now butter my butt and call me a biscuit, but isn’t the type of customer who is in the market for a million dollar ring…

Yeah, I thought so.

 

 

I’m just waiting for this one:

walmart

Only one available!  Free Store-To-Store shipping!

airplane

 

But don’t mind me… better hurry.

After all, there’s just one million dollar diamond up for grabs!

Hahaha! Seriously, you'd thing costco would be able to get a discount on that ring, or at least buy 3 of them for that price!

"Yeah, give me a huge box of eggs, a huge box of toilet paper, a huge bottle of BBQ sauce, and...ummm... a huge diamond ring."

What??? You mean your NOT in the market for a million dollar diamond? Why the heck not???

I had to follow all your links back to read about this Costco debacle. It's unbelievable how far corporations will go. I would boycott Costco for you but I kinda like shopping there...and I hate Sam's Club.

Beth Zimmerman said...

I've always thought we needed a Costco (to give Sams some competition). Maybe not so much!

RaD said...

Ha! And it doesn't even look like it's discounted either.

Sarah said...

You know they also sell wedding dresses, or so I'm told. (It's not like I've been looking)

Ostriches Look Funny said...

That is so weird! I wonder if anyone bought it. can you inquire? (not that I want one, well, I mean, uh, you know)

Sis, I LUUUUUUUUUUV you-you know Christmas is right around the corner and your sweet sister has never been given a diamond bigger than 0.00004 ct. It's a great gift idea! It can count for all birthday/Christmas presents from now til the end of time-LOL!!! Luloo

Brandi said...

Bwahahahaha! Oh lawd, what brilliant, overpaid executive came up with that? ;)

HeatherOz said...

Oooooweeeeee! I hope it hasn't sold yet. I'm going to go put it in my cart!

Lexie Loo & Dylan Too said...

That is hilarious!!!

Seriously, they need to have their marketing department examined. They've gotten into the wedding planning industry and actually show up at trade shows. Which I guess I can see if they try to woo the discount bargain crowd. But million dollar rings? And, as Bethany said, just ONE? I thought they were all about the bulk...
