I know a person who needed to get some medical testing done and the price to do so was pretty hefty. As a result, they turned to the Internet and saw all these kits that promised to do what all the professionals would do except the cost was like 20% of what you would normally pay for an in-office test. I guess a very common type of service is teeth whitening where an in-home kit is a lot cheaper than going to a dentist.
Would you ever trust an in-home kit though in this cases where it’s something that you really need and are simply trying to save money? To me it just seems so risky where there is a high chance you will end up buying something that doesn’t work. As a result, you then buy more products where eventually it’s like you ended up paying the high fee for the professional anyways. Funny enough, even for professional services you can often try to at least “price match” service fees too. I would much rather try that route personally if it is for a seriously needed product or service.
