Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

Yes! I highly recommend this craft/hobby eMagazine based on price trends and manufacturer ratings. Let's go over the reasons why buying this craft/hobby eMagazine now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. The current price is the lowest price and has never changed since we started reviewing this product!

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. The price of this product has not changed from October 18, 2017 to May 20, 2020, which means that it has steady and healthy supply!

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. This product never changed its price since we started reviewing this product, so the highest price and the lowest price are the same price. This means that this product has stable supply, which is good! The current price is lower than it has ever been. This is definitely the best time to purchase!

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. I haven't seen this product being unavailable since I started reviewing this product. So as far as the availability goes, this product is solid. If you plan to make a repeat purchase of this kind of item, this is your product! Pricing has been stable since I've begun tracking it, but it's too early yet to know exactly how volatile the price is.

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? Based on past price points, I expect the price to be the same price a week from now.

2. Manufacturer has very positive reviews on all their products!

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. As you see in my manufacturer report below, Kalmbach Publishing Co. () has very positive reviews for their products. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, this is likely a safe bet.

3. This craft/hobby eMagazine has okay reviews on the internet

Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This craft/hobby eMagazine has moderatereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this craft/hobby eMagazine more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See More Reviews on AmazonSee More Reviews on Amazon

4. Make sure Kalmbach Publishing Co. is a brand you can trust

Kalmbach Publishing Co. doesn't attract too many people on Amazon among other craft/hobby eMagazine brands. I couldn't find any YouTube videos, Reddit posts, or news articles that directly mention this product, but this can be just me not looking hard enough. Will update this when I have more info!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

5. There are other options, but don't look further if you're looking for the most popular product

I found 3 brands that have similar products like this one: Bauer Consumer Media, the same brand as this product, and Air Age Media. 'If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you might want to look at a similar product from Bauer Consumer Media. If you're looking for a craft/hobby eMagazine with best reviews, a product from the same brand as this product gets the best score on the internet. If your primary concern is whether the product is popular and well known, you probably can't find a better one than the current product you're looking at. I linked all the similar products in the similar products section so please check them out! Or you can check other similar products on Amazon, too.
