Ok, so where did you buy the cartridges? Also, I think no one will mind if you give the name of the vacation company Full disclosure!

The trick of course lies in the sourcing. Most of us don't want to take the time to do the research. But if you do, money can be made.
Here is a real live example. I'll leave out the name as I don't want anyone thinking it is an affiliate link. Vacations.
Yep, vacations. It is a 7 trillion dollar a year business world wide. You can get a 4 or 5 star hotel package for less than all those TV advertised sites. Take Trivago. They claim to have the lowest price. Nope. This company does.
What's the difference? Well money obviously. Trivago makes more when prices are higher even though they have lower prices than Kayak and the others. The other difference is the guys who started this company did a lot of research and found a way to not only make a lot of money but have a real live savings program.
I wonder how many of us are willing to do that kind of leg work and then follow it up with the action it takes to market the program.
Just my 2¢...
