Anything at all. With any currency. Go.

Mine would be some Dr Dre beats, I had them for a week then the sound messed up.
I could not get a refund :(

The Sims 3 for Wii, I love the PC version, but the Wii version was just fucking AWFUL. Bought it from GameStop for $50, and you know you can't return a game to GameStop for more than $10. Took the money anyway, but I totally regret buying it in the first place.

I bought a flashcart for my 3DS and a Memory Stick at a bazaar in Rome. Neither of them worked. It was literally the only things I've ever bought that didn't work.

Original version of the Gameboy Advance for $200. It wasn't the item itslef so much as the price and timing of the purchase. After I bought it, they lowered the price down to $50 a month or so later.
Also, it was an early model, and kind of a piece of shit.

Most recent one was probably MW3 Hardened Edition.

Worst game I've ever bought, played it for maybe 3 weeks before I got sick of it. I pre-ordered it and it cost like $100 something.

The only other thing I thought of was this one rave outfit, I struggled for a week choosing between two. I hate the one I chose now because of the colors, Spent like $150 on an outfit I only wore to two raves and half the time, you couldn't even see it besides the hat.

I bought a Logitech brand gaming headset back in August, and it eventually died on me just 2 months ago.

It was less then $20 though

Strippers, pornography, and escorts.

You pay for the time. And it's not like an object where you pay once and use it over and over. It's more like a time share.

Most of the video games I've bought, what a waste of time.
Also the knives that I bought before I knew anything about knives.

$50.00 to be a mod.

What a mistake.

$160 for a replica of Gandalf's sword, Glamdring, from LotR. It was okay as far as movie replicas go, but it had some issues, such as a hollow cross-guard. I sold it for $80, so it wasn't a total loss.


It made more sense in my head.

At least you are using it in some way though, better than buying it and never coming online.

I wonder if I can get my money back on that...

I like how the "virtual hat" is listed as a perk.

My worst purchase ever? Sent a care package to a girl I used to like after she moved away to go to college. She never really talked to me anyway. Was not worth the postage.

I didn't buy it, but it was bought and I was thus subjected to it.

Tickets for the 2002-era live action Pinocchio movie. Worst thing I can think of, nothing else compares.
