So you can get 8 Shamwow towels for $19.95, or the towel, washcloth, and soap set at LLBean for $29.95. Which is the better deal?

I guess it comes down to the quality and number of square feet of the product. So the real question is whether the two products are identical.

I always worry about the potential for cheap spin-off products. That is, I wouldn't be surprised if the towels at LLBean are a much higher quality product. But then again, the nature of advertising is changing, so that may not be a fair assumption any longer. Maybe deals like this Shamwow can be pretty good?

It is also true that a product that rarely sells may only need a good Akroydian pitchman to put the sales through the roof.
