It looks like HSN is going to be selling Toyota's on October 7.

Will it be a Today's Special? think of winning THAT Jigsaw Puzzle!!

Do you think they'll put one in the Rewards Sweepstakes?

I will bet NO to both, but it should be an interesting show. I remember QVC did "extreme shopping" years ago where they were selling off huge ticket items. That didn't last long.

If you guys win the car, you can give it to me and I'll gladly pay the taxes :d/

No tax refund but I get a brand new Toyota? Deal!


lolol... Sorry, no deal here. I know for sure I won't be winning the car because I am not putting any tickets in to try to win it. Hubby said, "Don't bother." lol The only thing I would want to win is a serger. Anything else I might win would be donated to my favorite animal society that sells the items (new or used) and uses the money to help care for the animals they rescue. I'll probably end up just buying a serger for myself for Christmas anyway. Sorry I can't help you out with the car though. Good Luck to you!!!

That would be a big yes there, Miss Cindy! My 9 year old Toyota still runs great, but smells a bit too much like the meal my son "lost" in the car on our summer road trip.

I hope I didn't gross anyone out. But man, that smell just won't go away!

So I am anxiously awaiting the car drawing. Please oh please be me..... [-o<

herndon...I get the feeling that you need a new car...am I right?

Mr. Bucket, I totally agree with you. I would not want one for their safety record alone. Plus, people don't realize just how much tax they must pay when they win a prize of this magnitude. Some people that have won cars and exotic trips, etc. on TV game shows never get the actual prize because they were not able to come up with the HUGE amount of tax that must be paid when you win these items. It's not just a couple of hundred dollars. It is well into the thousands.



You are so right livlafluv.
Not only are you responsible for the sales tax for the list price of the vehicle, you are also taxed on this as an income for the value of the vehicle.
A $30,000 automobile added to your already job income, can you say "no refund"?

Good luck to the one who wins it.

Boodle...how many entries are you going to make in the next month? WOW! I guess I can knock out a few puzzles a day to make the max number of entries...how about you?
boodlemum | Advisor 3 | 10.08.2012 12:03 AM
Wow, they DID put a Toyota into the Rewards Sweepstakes!
mrbucket | Pro 3 | 10.07.2012 3:16 PM
Toyota is so concerned that their sales have plummeted since their safety record has been diminished.
Having their product on a home shopping network is a new low for this company. I imagine that they are aiming for the women customers here. Why else would they have a person who sells make-up on this site try to sell to the women who watch them.
I would never ever consider purchasing from a company that uses this sales pitch.
Oh, and the $1000 spendable cash? Is that the rebate associated with most car sales transformed into spendable cash? Why not get the rebate from where you can spend REAL cash anywhere you want besides a home shopping network.
What a sham this is for any site.

TWO THUMBS DOWN!

Call Hsn and they will tell you some what is going on with the Toyota
MacUser1 | New Friend | 10.05.2012 5:32 PM
Yes, I'm curious as well. Toyota makes the best cars hands down so it's a quality product. Can't wait to see what the payments look like along with the prices. I'll be watching. ;-)
Cindy819 | Maven 3 | 10.04.2012 2:19 AM
You didn't turn it into a political discussion Boodle! It is making some of us curious as to what HSN has up it's sleeve...I'm sure that there are lots out there that are going to be watching to see what's up!
boodlemum | Advisor 3 | 10.04.2012 12:41 AM
Well my original post was just about how the Toyota event may tie into the Arcade games and rewards. Didn't mean for it to turn into a political discussion.

Well HSN has successfully peaked our interest on this subject, and I agree that it would be nice to have an American made product,-but in any case, I believe Toyota does make a quality car.
Cindy819 | Maven 3 | 10.03.2012 12:53 AM
Thank you for correcting me Mr B...I guess somewhere in the cobwebs of my mind, I knew that but forgot that some Toyotas ARE made in the USA...I just always associate it with Japan.
mrbucket | Pro 3 | 10.02.2012 11:07 PM
Are these going to be the Toyota's built in America or the ones made in China like everything else.
I mean why bother selling American company cars, nah, don't have a relative working for any of them.
We can send more American dollars overseas, how bout it group?


I think you'll find that Toyota is a Japanese company.#-o



I agree with you, it is a Japanese Company. Started by a man of the last name Toyoda.
But they do have places here in the USA that make some of their models.
Cindy819 | Maven 3 | 10.02.2012 10:27 PM
China...Japan...it doesn't really matter...it's not made in the USA!
