Zebco Complaint - "Free hat" should mean "free hat"
STRONGSVILLE, OH, OHIO -- I just bought a Zebco 33 fishing reel for my grandson. A red tag attached to it said "FREE HAT" with no asterisk to alert me that it is not "free." My grandson (age7) loved it and was excited about the "free" baseball-style CAP. Alas, when I turned the attachment over to see how to order it, I found that Zebco wanted $5.95 for shipping and handling. Plus Zebco wanted the store receipt & UPC. With the 44 cent stamp, Zebco wanted me to spend $6.39 for a "free" CAP. That is not "free" and I can buy a comparable CAP at the local store for less.
