    Yea that's the POS I got from Sam's for 149.99. I got their email today saying it was 50% off, I guess they can't sell them as cheap as Sam's. Douchebags. Still a little touchy about it. [​IMG]

    Thanks Squirrel!!! After going back over all the old posts I called back and canceled my order.[​IMG]

  6. Squirrl, what exactly were you sealing when yours quit working?  I have been reading reviews on this one and there is only 1 bad review for hundreds of good reviews..  I am wondering if you just got a lemmon?  as for the box issue with sams, that is common policy up here so I keep all boxes untill the the time period for returns is over.  don't need the box for exchanges usally.  I ordered one yesterday from costco up here, so I am not worried as they have a supper return policy.

    Thanks Dan.

    stircrazy - I've had alot of folks tell me they have had the same problem. I was sealing dry pecans. Yea, I don't throw out boxes either, but this one was on my back porch and my neighbor came to "help out" by taking my trash and took the box. I've got another FoodSaver (older model, NOT MADE IN CHINA) coming next week I got off ebay. I'm over it. No big deal. Moving on to bigger and better things to play with. Like my new printer! WooHoo! It will print up to 13 x 44 inches! That's a big arse Squirrel!
