Dick’s Gives Me Pause

January 22nd, 2008at 07:05am Posted by Eli

So I couldn’t help noticing, that on the product page for a $2.99 dumbbell, Dick’s Sporting Goods offers both an Extended Service Contract and a “Take up to 6 months to pay” option.

Do people really have a lot of trouble with their dumbbells breaking down or malfunctioning? And does anyone really need six months to pay three dollars?

Yes, I have a pretty good idea of the technical reasons why those options are there, but I’m still amused by the absurdity of the end result.
