PulseTV is a discount online shopping website (not an auction format) which has been around since 1996, in one form or another. PulseTV as a company started by promoting products through television. However, as time passed and technologies changed, Pulse now focuces on their ecommerce store, loaded with great deals on products. Our initial impression- old school meets new school. Old school in that a lot of the products feel like ‘as seen on tv’ and new school in that they offer great deals on products and shipping through their website.

Editor’s PulseTV Review
PulseTV is an Ecommerce shop which offers a variety of products which you’d expect to have been sold on TV. This is likely a reflection of their history as a television and catalog sales company. The product line seems pretty diverse and random at times (more on the product line below) but one this is consistent- pricing. Just about everything that we see on the website appears inexpensive, touting large discounts on all products.
Please note that PulseTV.com is NOT a penny auction. That’s right, NOT a penny auction.
PulseTV Marketplace Features
Pulse TV differs from penny auction websites in a few ways:
- Non-Auction Format: PulseTV, like Bonanza, is not an auction website, it’s a marketplace where you can get cool stuff cheap!
- Free to participate: Again, this is not an online auction website so no costs to bid on items.
- All Products Shipping from PulseTV: Unlike Tophatter, PulseTV ships all products. This means that products are vetted and customer service, returns, etc. are handled by the company which may explain their great reputation (Better Business Bureau A+ rating)
- High Volume: At a glance, there seems to be a very large volume of products on PulseTV.com.
Common PulseTV Items
- Generally, stuff that you’d think would be sold ‘as seen on tv’
- Home goods (lawn chairs, gardening items, grilling accessories)
- Clothing, hats, sunglasses
- Small electronics, blue tooth devices, charging stations
- Camping, knives, and other outdoor recreation goods
- Small tools
- Really, everything else (look now)
PulseTV Shopping Tips
- Shipping as a percentage of total cost: Since items are cheap on PulseTV, your shipping charges can easily cost as much as the item iteself. It’s ideal to make a few purchases at once so that the overall shipping charge is not a big part of your expense. Example, buying a single small item can cost you $3, with shipping costing you another $3.
- New Stuff: They are always adding new items to PulseTV so keep an eye out on that category.
PulseTV Marketplace Shipping and Fees
PulseTV charges comparable shipping amounts as do other Ecommerce websites. Nothing out of the ordinary here.
Is Pulse TV a scam?
We don’t think so. Lots of quirky, inexpensive gift items to shop for.
