TeleBrands Complaint - Another Piece of Crap From TeleBrands
Let me begin by saying this is being written for a friend who does not have access to the internet. She saw the ads on TV for the Slice-a-Matic, a device for slicing and dicing foods. She ordered two of the packages, as she wanted one for herself and three to give as gifts, since the promotion was buy one, get one free. When the box arrived, there were four of the units in the box, but none of them had the promised recipe book, the cheap plastic units have a very hard time with potatoes or onions, and contrary to the TV ad, state the unit works best on leafy vegetables. The invoice stated the box contained two standard SAMs, and two 'Deluxe' SAMs. All four of the individual boxes inside bore the same item number, and the only difference was that two were white, as seen on TV, and two were black. Our friend is very unhappy with the SAMs, and the bill turned out to be much higher than quoted on TV. As we explained to her, they make their money on the outrageous shipping and handling charges. We told her that when you see a TeleBrands item advertised, you can usually find a similar item elsewhere at a much lower price and with higher quality. TeleBrands is a rip-off, selling garbage at inflated prices.
