RFD - Buy now think later - regrets

Have you ever made an impulse buy because of RFD just because it was a good deal and never ended up using it and is just collecting dust? Just got caught up in the ever famous “buy now think later”?

What did you buy?

Many things in Thailand are expensive, so when I came back to Canada last summer even regular priced items were cheap.

Bought crapload of Olay creams.

Bought SNES mini at regular price thanks to RFD.

Bought many PS4 games that I will never play, thanks to RFD.

Bought some Lego sets that I will never play. They are expensive as f here, so I might just resell them.

Bought teeth whitening strips. Then I found out I can get them on eBay much cheaper.

Etc, etc.....

The RFDer motto has a lesser known condition, “Buy Now, Think Later... *Only at places with good return policies.”
The Devil made me buy it - RFD. :twisted:

Nothing so far. It would be wrong to assume that the "buy now, think later" mentality is particular to RFD. It is extremely common among the herd mentality. Easily found among those who shop in warehouses.

I've definitely bought things I wouldn't have normally bought without RFD influence, but I've also used, or am using, all of those things. So no regrets.....except maybe the Tilley hat.....I don't even like hats.

Wouldn't say it was an impulse, but I bought these sleek breathable briefs... which turned out not to have a front opening. Major design defect.

Never once used the front opening of underwear. What do you do with that anyways? Is it to pee or to get a little air conditioning when sleeping at night?

I miss out on most deals I may be interested in anyway, as I research the product, search sizes or wait for slow website to load, no coupon etc and off course as the RFD effect flashes before my eyes.

Catching deals on RFD is almost a full time job.

That might explain the pink color and frills.
