I don't know when I'll get to the Walk For Life stuff; the BodyBugg saga continues. I talked to the manager at 24 Hour Fitness today and he says I should wear it a bit more. It didn't misbehave when he looked at it and showed a rather modest calorie count (1300 for the last day worn). I think it is making up numbers because it most certainly did not show 1300 that last time I looked at it! Using the "trip" feature for my 30 minute walk to work it said I burned 200 calories! I don't think so. FitDay tells me 88 calories and I think that is much more accurate.
At any rate, I have to call tech support, get a return number from them, take that back to 24 Hour Fitness and jump through a bunch of hoops, then wait for a check. The return process is crazy.
I will give the BodyBugg a couple of days of wear and then (most likely) call tech support. I want it to work - I really do. It just doesn't seem to.
I called GoWear Fit but they assured me that all I had to do was send the device back and they will process it. I included the return slip in the package along with my reason for returning it and asking for a refund. They assured me that my credit card would be credited in time. So that is out of my hands.
I don't know if you have seen those commercials on TV for Snuggies. Well, they are a scam. A fraud. Plain and simple. The phone ordering was completely automated. I ordered two blue blankets. I wanted one extra thick and one regular, but they didn't give that option. There was no total quoted at the end.
After going through three phone numbers I finally got ahold of a live person. They say orders can take time to process so I ended up calling several times. Each time I was told that my order was not in the system. I eventually ended up ordering again figuring that my first order didn't go through for whatever reason.
Two days after I placed my new order, four Snuggies arrived in the mail, all super thick. I checked my bank account and I had been charged $99! WTH?!? I have not been able to contact the company since then. Hopefully tomorrow I can contact them. I filed a complaint with my bank saying these were unauthorized charges. I need to send these blankets back since they were not what I wanted.
The box contained no packing slip and there was no return address. The company is clearly making it as hard as possible to return merchandise. I found the company name through a Google search. I have already filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. When I checked out the company's rating it was an F!
At any rate, this company is running a SCAM! Do not fall for it!
