Should I buy a PR8 site wide text link?

I have recently been offered a site-wide text link from a website with a PageRank of 8/10 at a very resonable price, I have been reading up about it and there seems to be mixed views about site-wide text links. My experience of them is that they work a charm. Here's an example about 18 months ago I used to work at this company called Iomart and I sold mini optimised websites with a generic domain name and sometimes they worked alright on MSN and Yahoo but never on Google and they never got a pagerank of above 2/10, I clocked on that the sites needed links to work and I said to one of my customers to place a link to your mini site from your main site, his main site had a pagerank of 5/10 on many of the pages, he placed a site-wide link to the mini-site from his main site and withinn a month or two the mini-site had a google pagerank of 5/10, the mini-site did incredible in MSN and Yahoo and pretty good in Google, far better then any of the other mini sites I had sold. I have read about a few people saying that site-wide links will actually harm your rankings, is this correct? I have quite a few site-wide links already and my rankings are staedily increasing on all search engines, should I by this PageRank 8/10 site wide text link?
