I haven't bought a bathing suit in...7 years? I look at the price tag and stop there. Yeah, the not being able to try it on thing kind of scares me but oh well, I'm willing to take a chance

I wont vote on your poll since I don't have mine yet but I think I would buy it anyway. I get the Sunday paper for the coupons and 90% of the time they're useless to me but the 10% makes it all worthwhile. I would see the ads on the KSO in the same way.

I hear you. That's the smart way to view it. Besides, the ads aren't intrusive; so what's to lose?

As a service for those of you waffling on the swimsuit offer, I have a special Twitter account that you can tweet with pics and comments. I'll then let you know if you should keep it or exchange it.

The account's fairly private and only has one follower - some idiot congressman from New York.

Guess I missed that thread. My $6 off went right thru (and I had the 2 free trial the day before that, for 8 total books for $6).

I'm saving the $100 off for December.

Latest Offer

Here is the latest offer, as worthless as the rest IMO. Probably due to display next week. The good news is that the date finally matches so it looks as though they will start to come in order. It also allows for the possibility that a modification of the .gif on the same date might work.

Worthless? Apparently you haven't suffered the financial pain of outfitting yourself for a solo hike in the wilderness! I'll definitely be watching for this one!

That is a great offer. I know folks who backpack and bought e-readers so that they would have more books at hand and save weight while on the trail.

Oooh...I might like that offer too depending on what it is. If they offer outdoor clothes and stuff, that will be useful for me. More so that the bathing suit one, which I did check out, but since the suits I liked were a$100 and up, guess I'll keep my one from Tar-gay! :lol:

And TubeMonkey, your twitter comment cracked me up!

Sorry, I mean worthless as in just an ad on overpriced items; didn't mean to offend, of course these things are a good deal for some. I am just crabby because I haven't found any offers yet.

LOL!

So I got my KSO a couple hours ago and I really don't see what the big deal is. I am loving it and have to go out of my way to notice the ads.

I do have a question though. Can you take advantage of any of the offers with a gift card? Take the $10 for $20 gift card offer. Can you pay the $10 with a gift card?

I don't believe you can purchase a gift card with a gift card. Every time I purchase a gift card it asks me for a credit card, even if I have a gift card balance on my account.

Hmm darn. I was thinking of getting my brother a KSO but he would only purchase things with a gift card. Would be sad if he can't take advantage of the offers.

That was my plan too, until this glitch.

BTW, I added an update and I'm still waiting for them to get it resolved.
