All these sibling comments throwing $229 at a newfangled and unproven gimmick based on some anonymous online comment have really got me scratching my head...

Am I the only one who likes sleeping on these things before committing to a purchase?

Social media is either making money via ads, or their making money via sales of $SOMETHING. This is marketing at work.


No. My default behavior with Amazon is to add things I might want, or sometimes even need, but that aren't strictly necessary, to the cart and then decide on them the next time I find myself in the cart with a purchase that actually needs to be made.

The way this really plays out is my wife says, "Do you want this stuff in the cart?" and then I go and remove most of it.


Certainly no - I am one of them as well, but we are minority, judging from abuse of discounts in commerce. It does work, regardless it's piece of bread or fancy gimmick we are talking about.
