I am moving my topic from Kitty’s to here because their are some nasty people over there that seem to have something against electrolysis.
Just this past week I bought a great little ultrasonic cleaner from Harbor Freight, a discount tool supplier. They sell very little of anything other than tools but have a few odd items. I was pretty happy about it because it was on sale for $26 usually I think it’s around $30 something.
Well, I was looking through my Prestige Electrolysis Supply catalog and saw a very familiar little ultrasonic cleaner they called “Cody”. They said that it is a Prestige exclusive item. They also claim that they care about their customers and give deep discounted prices for them. They sell discounted electrolysis supply.
I knew that my ultrasonic cleaner was manufactured by Chicago Electric and they are calling theirs “Cody”. I took a look at mine and found that it is imported by Chicago Electric from China and it too has the name “Cody” on it.
Well I’ll be darned. Lets see how bad I got ripped off. Oh My God! Prestige, my discounter, is selling it for $50 something. I can’t believe they are pulling the wool over all of their customers eyes. I thought they were giving all of us a good, fair price on the products they sell.
Harbor Freight has their markup on the product to make some money even at $26.00. Do you guys think that it is necessary for Prestige to rip their customers off that bad? Do they have to be marking it up soooo high thinking that no one would find out? Couldn’t they be honest and just let people know that they are giving no deals to any valued customer.
Well, If you don’t have a Harbor Freight retail store in your area you can look them up on the web.
I would love to hear from others some good finds they have had that will bypass Prestige until they get a little more serious and decide that they value their customers too much to rip them off and that they will start to price their products fairly.
Good electrolysis stand? Good table? Different source for needles? Good place to get pre or post products? Any good deals?
If they don’t figure this out quick, they will come to the realization that there is always someone standing right behind you that is more than willing to take your place.
