Rainbow Vacuum, only in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong is one of the few places left in the world where fear mongering works seamlessly.  The land of endless insurance products to protect against every conceivable risk and door-to-door salesman are still prevalent.  One of which I will now try to highlight is Rainbow Vacuums.  All you have to do is go to Consumer Reports and read up on the reviews.  Before you even consider purchasing a Rainbow vacuum, look at the pricing on ebay and amazon.  It does not cost anywhere near the amount the HK distributor is asking $30,000 HKD.  I am not joking.  If you are dead set on Rainbow, purchase off amazon and save 50% right off the bat.  I trust amazon to uphold their end of the bargain vs the Hong Kong rep.  In typical HK culture once the money has changed hands you are on your own.

It’s no wonder pyramid schemes still work so well here.  Everyone is their own little corporation with the ability to place business.  HK households have housekeepers so in effect giving them employees.  Sad truth.  If you have a domestic helper, you don’t need a Rainbow.  If you don’t have a domestic helper, a more affordable vacuum will leave more money in your pocket.  Don’t let the door to door vacuum sales guy bully you.  Do your due diligence.  In this day and age, there’s no need to rely on door to door sales.  If the product was truly effective it need not rely on fear mongering.

Now think about it from a logical sense.  If the product was so awesome, would the big home appliance manufacturers not dedicate whole teams to doing it?  I would much rather trust the likes of Samsung, Sony, Panasonic, Dyson etc to sell me a functioning vacuum.  Don’t be stupid, dare to be different.
