Submission + - Attention X10 Nerds: Biggest X10 Sale in History (


Our goal is simple: reach $1,000,000 in sales as fast as possible. However, we can't do this without your help!

So, we figured what better way to sell a ton of wireless wonder products than to lower the prices for our customers with NEVER BEFORE SEEN REBATES! We did exactly that. The prices are BY FAR THE LOWEST YOU WILL EVER SEE... here, there, ANYWHERE! It's not even close! Here's the catch: once we hit $1,000,000, this sale goes away just like that! Considering how many people receive our Newsletter and visit our Web site every day, this should not take long at all! Lock in your historically low prices now! (TIP: Find a deal you like and click through, on each page of the Million Dollar Event there are Deals EVEN BETTER than the ones in the newsletter! For Example, 4 Lamp Modules for $25 on the $9.99 Lamp Module Page!)

Be careful when a loop exits to the same place from side and bottom.
