So they are sucking people into buying this plan and telling you that they would cover anything that would go wrong with the product they won't even help. Do not buy there service plan unless you want to throw money away!!!!!!!!!! They suck big time!!!!!!!!!
Radio Shack will try to beat its customers out of there rebates. This almost happened to me until I said to operator "I guess its true what they say about Radio Shack on mythreecents.com you all will try to screw your customers out of there rebates." Guess what happen next! They said I will receive my rebate. I will never step inside a Radio Shack again.

CALIFORNIA -- I had this car charger plugged in the lighter in my truck. While driving this evening, I noticed a burning wire smell. I just pulled into the gas station to fill up and noticed smoke coming from the charger. I immediately pulled out the charger and notice it had melted. I shuttered to think what would have happened if I got on the freeway and this started to burn. If you have one of these spotlight, I would return it due to the potential fire hazard.

Coupon offer: good luck trying to collect. There's some technical glitch the consumer doesn't readily know about..very convenient for Radio Shack -- they don't have to honor the coupon, but sure used it as a heavy sales tactic to sell the original item.
Price matching: good luck collecting on that. In my case, I bought a phone; a day later Radio Shack offered it for a lower price. I went to get the price difference, and again, oh, a technicality, we can't pay the difference.
(technicality had to do with the original phone getting changed out by the manufacturer three days following the Radio Shack purchase, so although it was the same purchase, the serial numbers were not the same; plenty of documentation exists on the change out. It's obviously the same phone, it's the same phone number and same carrier. The transaction would take a human to intervene, but Radio Shack won't bother. I'm still waiting for the manager to call me back, hasn't happened and two weeks have passed.
