Why do companies make such outrageous claims to try and sell their product? To me they are a turnoff and the reason I won't buy their products. Two recent ads I've seen come to mind. Omaha Steaks is offering a package of food for $49.95. Checking what I know of prices they seem quite a bit higher than buying from the store but not out of line if the quality is good and it is delivered to you house. The turnoff: In the ad Omaha Steaks says the $49.95 package is worth over $200 and I would be saving more than $150 if I buy their product. Get real Omaha, you lost me as a customer. The other outrageous claim come from a vacuum sealing product called Food Saver. They claim the average family wastes $2700 worth of food per year and their product will save a family that amount. Get real Food Saver. I serious doubt we waste $27 worth of food per year and I can't imagine even a large family wasting more than $200 or $300 worth of food. Another product I won' buy.
