View Full Version : Impulse buy threshold?

General question. What is your 'impulse buy' threshold in terms of you see something cool that you want, toy/gadget/software/online service and you don't think twice about the price? Maybe as a gift to yourself or someone else?

Thanks to my lessons

not really an impulse buy, but I was having huge discussions with myself about what car to get and somehow ended up with a Honda Fireblade.

Nice bike but not really what I had in mind ;)

If I have the money and see something I like I will get it...... and quickly regret it

Mine is about 40 where I don't bat an eyelid. Especially if it is tix for a band I want to see or a cool piece of tech. Much more than that and I give it some thought.

really hard to answer, i think it is normal to automatically evaluate the product , and its worth to you.
also personal spending limits will pay a part ad that can greatly depend on market it will appeal to including location if that is a factor.

Oh it also boils down to the fact that everything on my wish list is in the thousands so I rarely buy anything on a whim. Just cant afford anything on the list
