Now does that even make any sense to you for a hole punch ?
Price is within ~ 75 cents or so from multiple sellers (shipped). Not a hot deal at $18.39. Believe it or not, some heavy duty office equipment costs $$. I could easily see a durable hole punch that you use day in and day out going for $80. However, as others have said, this one is close to normal price.

Makes perfect sense if you ever want to punch holes in more than 3 pieces of paper at a time...or not replace yours every time it breaks from overuse.
Upon reading the reviews, there are countless uses for it. Teachers seem to love it especially. I'd consider it more of an investment than an expense.

Overpaying for this ~ $18.00 hole punch will not make it perform any better. ezwrighter said: Believe it or not, some heavy duty office equipment costs $$.
I "believe" we are talking about this $18.00 hole punch, not hypothetical expensive heavy duty office equipment. See above about overpaying.

Yeah, I'd recommend OP remove "was $79.68", as that is both misleading and incorrect. Even putting "list price $79.68" in the OP is meaningless. Putting in the market value ($18-$20) would be more helpful. This is a deal site––the whole point is to help people find a good deal. Not to mislead.

Yes, but I was responding to your original comment: "Now does that even make any sense to you for a hole punch ?" and yes it does make sense for "a" hole punch, just not "this" hole punch
Sorry, if I am being a little anal...and I think we both agree that this is NOT a hot deal for this particular punch
It may or may not be a hot deal. This one looks identical to the one I own, and it is the best 3-hole punch I have ever used.

I am a teacher and I punch holes in about a 1000 papers a week. If you punch a lot of holes, you want this one. I have tried them all including the one posted here and they have all disappointed me. This one has lasted me 15 years of heavy use.

I'm always weirded out by some of the deals posted here. A garden rake, a hose, a hole punch. Crocs. 99% of the things I need to purchase for normal life are bought in terms of immediate need and not accumulated beforehand or gone without for want of a better price.
