I bought one (last one) randomly hanging at the end of an aisle at M's... the packaging doesn't really explain whether it's refillable, and I don't think it is. However, the casing does come off, but some mechanism broke and now the glue dot spool won't rotate...

I paid $8.99 minus 40% with a coupon. It's 250 count 7mm glue dots. I'm pretty sure the other glue dot dispensers I have are a better deal. I think I'm going to try to return it. I don't understand why they wouldn't make it refillable.

I hope it's not too late but mine broke right after I bought it too. I went back to the glue dots.

I bought one and returned it the next day - what a piece of crap. The glue dots didn't stick at ALL and yes, the advancing mechanism broke or got stuck on the dang dots that were still on the roll. Complete waste of money.

I've had one for a little while. It's ok, not great. I kept putting off getting one, looking for refills first, before I finally broke down and got one with a coupon. The problem I have with it is that you have to press pretty hard to get the glue dot to come off, and the dots are smaller than I expected them to be. It was a good idea, just not great execution. I'll use it up, but I doubt I'll buy another one.

I bought one at M's too, and I just couldn't for the life of me, get it to work properly. The glue dots never stuck when I plunged it down. I typically like their products, but this one just doesn't cut it IMHO.

I agree. Total piece of crap. I bought one at M's after seeing it on several occassions. I usually like imaginisce products but this one falls way short. It works very hard and the advancing mechanism gets stuck. If you dont get the glue dot to adhere to the paper it rips it up as you pull up on the dispenser. I'll try and use it up but certainly won't buy another one. Fail. Glad i used a coupon and am only out about 4 bucks.

Absolute junk. I bought one months ago and it broke on the first try. I sent Imaginisce an e-mail. They sent a replacement and it broke after 2 tries.
