Personally I react negatively to language of the sort.

The only ones you need for a professional website are: Win, Save and Free.

If you start down the road with miracle and revolutionary people will just laugh...

Also- keep in mind that people will click on a good price more readily than they will on the hint of a good price... So if you have competetive prices they should do most of the work for you if you display them properly.

If one is setting up spam filters I think it's dangerous to filter for single words such as those mentioned so far in this thread. Sure spammers use them, but so would a lot of legitimate messages. Filtering for multi-word combinations would be more reasonable.

Hmmm, just what I was thinking... Imagine the auto-deletion of "Your warranty call reference number" email?
