Where would I put a "purchase success story?"
 
Long story short, I looked for a deal on a certain product here at SD, but with no luck. It wasn't even mentioned - which is not too surprising as it's a somewhat higher-end niche product.

So, I did my own searching and found that there is a place that sells "reboxed" as well as "reboxed with cosmetic blemishes" versions of this product. I'd never heard of this site and wasn't really sure if I should trust them.

In a nutshell, I "risked it" (the price was too good to pass up - yet realistic - as it was literally half of what Williams/Sonoma charges) and have been really happy with the results.

So, would sharing my story (for future reference) about success with this site and getting this product from them be best placed in "product reviews?" Or is it more of a "deal talk" kind of a topic? I know it's not a "hot deal" as it's really their every day price.

I agree, although more people would see it in Deal Talk.

deal talk: discuss advice & strategies and anything deal related. popular deals that have expired may be moved here.

product reviews: post or request reviews

OK, I'll put it up in under product reviews. However, if it's really a product review, I'm going to use it a bit more first rather than just post about the purchase experience.

I'm not so worried about people seeing it as a post per se. I just want anyone who comes along looking for this specific product to be able to find it in a search - like I wasn't able to find myself.

I doubt this (a $500+ MSRP food processor) will garner much attention from the masses - even at 50% off.

You could always go ahead and post what you were already prepared to, and then come back and update the thread about how you like the appliance once you've used it more. :)
