We're excited to have the $1,000 KISS Keyword back with 12 chances for you to win $1,000 every weekday (details here)! But we can't win (only you can), which got us thinking about our best (and worst) impulse purchases. Some were outright accidental while others... yeah, you'll just have to hear it for yourself. Who do you think made the worst impulse purchase?

Riggs (5:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.): "It was Amazon Prime Day 2017, I was pretty drunk and I impulse bought a T-Rex costume. An adult one. It’s awesome though!”

Alley (5:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.): "My biggest impulse buy happened last weekend when I bought seven pints of blueberries from Aldi because they were so cheap. Might have been too much, just a little.”

Gibbons (5:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.): "It was 2007 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and a young Gibbons was there for Motorcycle Week! So, of course, I decided to buy one of those grills that rappers all wear. I walked around town smiling! Well, they didn’t love my grill, no, they actually made me an outcast.”

JMatt (10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.): "Biggest impulse purchase I’ve ever made would have to be a car. I mean, I went to the lot with the intention of buying a car, but my budget was much smaller than the car I bought. It was fully tricked out, fully loaded… like a panoramic sunroof – how cool? Heated seats, heating steering wheel. I got suckered in, I bought that thing! I still really like that car, I don’t currently own it, but… sad day.”

Kraig (2:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.): "I don’t spend money. I know that sounds weird and I think a lot before I buy. But! Ordering groceries one time, at Peapod – can I say that? I just did. In a huge hurry and I wanted to get a couple of yogurts, three, but I accidentally punched in – I guess I didn’t realize I did it, but I punched in forty-three. So, then I had 43 delicious yogurts delivered to my house. Anybody want some yogurt?”

DJ Gee-A (7:00 p.m. - 12:00 a.m.): "It’s not what you think it is, I’m a video gamer and I got an [Xbox One], I’ve had Nintendo, NES. I’ve waited in line for the Xbox, Xbox what is that? Xbox 360, that’s the first time I sat outside overnight for a game system, but they’re always impulse buys. Like, I have an Xbox One, but I need the Xbox OneX and probably, one day I’m just going to get the Xbox One X. Those are really my impulse buys. I don’t, nothing else but video game systems. I’m a video game head, what can I say?”

Z (12:00 a.m. – sunlight, aka 5:00 a.m.): “Man… so, I got this phone, I got it because it was named after me. A bunch of different mods on it, looked like the coolest thing ever and I was actually talking to Kraig Karson about it. Five minutes into the conversation, I’m like ‘oh, you can switch it… you gotta switch em, and then you gotta have a bag for em and you carry them… this phone kinda sucks.’ And then I got the generic phone that everyone has with the blue messages. But now, I got the exclusive… different purchase, unnecessary, I’m trying to eat healthy but it’s gluten-free! ”
