A $509.95 luggage set for only $99.95!

What brand of luggage is this? The term “Ultralite” is used in several brands of luggage as well as lots of other products. Despite the tiny ® symbol at the end of the word, I could not find any brand by that name. It’s simply a generic term to describe a light weight version of almost anything.

And where did the “$509.95” price come from? That’s an interesting question, actually one asked by the Dallas, TX BBB! (See the links below for their opinion.) You will note that all the items in this mailing show a “National Reference Price.” How is this price determined? Why, by the Sweepstakes Clearinghouse, of course! There is no organization that determines those kinds of prices. It’s purely up to this ‘Sweepstakes’ company to decide what to show as a price. And they are actually a “marketing” company. Their business is selling stuff and the higher their prices, the more money they make. Getting a big discount on an item that is marked tremendously can be just another way of throwing money down the drain!

There is absolutely no way to compare this luggage set with any other. We have absolutely no idea of the quality of construction nor the durability of the luggage or its parts. Believe me, cheap luggage can easily be destroyed by just one airline trip!
