I think there are some things that look better on display and will most certainly disappoint you once you get them into your own home. Walking through the big name department stores, electronic super store, even watching adds on TV appeal to your taste and style. These companies lure you in with their array of seemingly hidden treasures. The problem is once you get the product into your home and actually use it may disappoint you. Once it’s taken from the perfect lighting and flawlessly coordinated room it may just not be as good as it looked. Exercise equipment is almost certainly not as easy to use as the fitness models make it seem. The hottest tech gadget has a half life of approximately 6 months before advertisers, upgrades and technological advancements render it seemingly outdated and worthless. And women’s high heel shoes may feel great for the first five minutes and then secretly and somehow seamlessly morph into a torture chamber.
The biggest problem is that these companies are fully aware of all of the defects in their merch ise. They protect themselves from their faulty product’s half life by guarding their profits with strict return policies. Sometimes they offer store credit, other times they simply refuse to offer any compensation for the disappointment their product brings. I have never understood store credit as a compensation for a disappointing product. The way I see it is, if whatever I bought disappointed me so bad I wanted to get rid of it, why would I want anything from your company. Have you ever thrown your cell phone out the window on the freeway? I have, and it was most certainly much better than anything I could have gotten with store credit.
