Do you tend to purchase more big brands or generic brands?
Aldis and cheap store brands. If a name brand is there I like, I'll buy it
Depends on the item.
When it comes to food, I buy generic. When it comes to beauty products and pet food, I buy name brands.
Generic if possible.
Brand if generic proved to be below my standards
I always try and buy big name brand items if my wallet allows it. When it comes to food i always buy name brand.
If I'm confident I'll buy generic.
Don't ever buy generic oreo's.
I buy (& trust) the reputation.
Well, the food at the co-op cannot in any way be considered a "big" brand in the grand scheme of things, but they certainly aren't generics...
Mostly bigger brands. But a lot of Kirkland Signature. :)
Big brands, but for groceries and consumables at least, some of my favorite brands are store brands, if not generics. Costco's Kirkland brand is almost always the best available at any price, and Walmart's Great Value brand is usually just that.
But America has brands. Instructions unclear!
Most major brands have shipped their jobs offshore. The small local shop keeps your dollars closer to home.
Big box strip centers are monuments to outsourcing.
Also brands aren't your best value.
Save the $$$ , avoid the name brand
For a lot of things I buy the store product, but not always. I don't like to ingest, or to put on my skin, products made in China, due to their track record.
I'll buy generic every time, as long as I know from experience that the product in question tastes the same or almost the same. However, name-brand is good for trying things for the first time.
I've worked in a couple different factories and I can tell you that most generics are made in the same factories with the same materials or ingredients as the name brand. The extra you pay goes towards marketing and not much else.
Jewelry big brands. Clothes both. Hookers small.
How you including hookers and said small
Big brands or small the end result is the same. Money saved is money stored
That's true but It's not really saving money when you are using the money for that reason
Are you mocking me?
Nobody is mocking anyone
Do u think I'm an asshole?
Did I say that?
It was implied
And I'll call you that if I want to. All I said was that was funny
Ok you're and asshole it that what you wanted to hear
Ok whatever that means
I want to know more about these generic hookers. Are they equivalent to name brand hookers? Or are they just more cheap Chinese knock-offs?
Generic as in there's a 16% chance you'll catch something. Brand name broads tend to be overconfident but they look oh so fine. That's about a 3% risk
Small niche brands.
Depends on what it is.
Depends on what I find
Other than my generic prescription medicines, which are the only ones my insurance covers, I can't think of another thing in my house, nor the last time I purchased ANYthing generic...
Depends... Whatever is the best value.
Only buy name brand medicine and tp
Generic store brands are usually manufactured by the big brands. You're pretty much just a sucker if you buy name brands
More generics, if the ingredients are the same. Only a few things I prefer brand.
Depends on what store I'm in if I buy the store brand or not. But have been using generic medications for years. I usually give the store brand a try before deciding whether to use it regularly or not.
Name brand shoes and phones. Most if the rest can be generic
We are buying generic baby formula from sams and saving over 50%. It meets the same quality standards as the name brands.
Depends on what the product is
Why would I pay more for the same thing?
Because chedder penguins just aren't the same
What are cheddar penguins?
>Insert Homer Simpson Fooling Noises<
A lot of the time generic stuff is exactly the same, and sometimes it's better. But there's always the generic stuff that sucks
Obamanomics is not doing us too well.
The "Trickle Down Poverty" has us buying more generics.
Buying more generics is a bad thing?
The destruction of the middle class, multiplication of the poor & the overall increase wealth disparity under Obama...
Well, yeah...that's pretty bad.
How are the things you listed related to buying generic products?
If you don't have enough $, you can't afford what you want; you can only buy what you can afford -- if anything at all. "Generic" isn't always equivalent. Most items don't have a "generic" so people just have to do with an inferior brand or without.
For you to ignore the destruction of purchasing power over the past 7 years -- or your ignorance of even basic economics, identifies you as an outstanding example of ignorance, or a world class troll. I'm really not sure at this point which one.
About even, I have certain things that I only buy the name brand... But there are things it just depends on the whats cheapest or on sale
