Tristar Products Inc Complaint - Power Juicer TV Infomercial Scam

Review by Celia1 on 2009-04-24
READING, PENNSYLVANIA -- Beware of Jack LaLannes Power Juicer scam on TV from Tristar Products Inc as they will scam you as they did me. They show and price a Classic PJ at a price of two easy payments of $49.90 each and an exorbitant S&H of $44.96. When the package arrives you discover that they have invoiced you for a Deluxe PJ and billed your credit card in the amount of $105.85 with a balance due of $59.95 as the 2nd payment. When complaining they state that "Deluxe PJ" does not mean the Deluxe model as they ship out the Classic Model. This amounts to hidden extortion. ($49.90 + $44.96 does not equal $105.85. If you pay the balance due and complain you can send it back for the same S&H. That amounts to being overcharged $18.99 plus 2-1/2 times the normal UPS charge for shipping. There are several other sites that only charge $14.95 for shipping. I've learned my lesson and will teach others to never buy anything from a TV Infomercial.

Always check the Internet before buying anything lest you get ripped off like I did! Without sending back the PJ I will have $165.80 invested in an appliance that retails for $99.00 in several stores.

My general policy: never trust any infomercial or product advertised that way. Also: never buy 'not sold in stores'. Only my opinion, but it works for me.
