On a semi weekly trip to Sams club while looking in the "blow out section" I came across this. I have no use for it, I already have one and this makes my 4th air pot brewer and I nearly never drink drip as my espresso machine is right at hand but at this price, they were paying me to buy it, well sort of anyway!

Brand new, in the box, I reopened the sealing tape in the store to see inside the box and it was still packed as it came from the factory, all the paperwork and packaging just as it left Bunn!

I really don't have any idea what I am going to do with it, a gift perhaps or a Craigs list sale I just don't know but it just goes to show that you need to keep your eyes open all the time and look everywhere for deals and be ready to grab them when you can.

This is not a store stocked item, it is a website only brewer for Sams club so my best guess is that it was a return from a website sale, uh, bigger than they thought it was? Who knows now but it is in my home right now!

And the price!
It sat for nearly a week with this price tag. Either no one saw it (hard to imagine) or people did not see the true value, or ? Regardless, it is mine now!

Some things are just such a good deal you have to buy them. It would violate all good common sense to not buy it.
