Brookstone Complaint - Deceptive advertising
I purchased a toy helicopter at Brookstone and the salesperson convinced me to get an extended warranty as well, for an additional 5 dollars. Now that 35 days has passed, I find I can no longer return the product to the store for the replacement the salesperson told me I would be able to get (because I bought the extended warranty) - instead I have to spend time on the phone reading numbers off my receipt to somebody at Brookstone who then must receive a fax of the receipt itself before I will be given instructions on where to ship the broken helicopter before I can get a replacement. Of course I have to pay for shipping.
This extended warranty is nothing but a ripoff. Do not even consider purchasing it, and better yet, avoid Brookstone completely. They need to go out of business so that other people do not have to be frustrated the way it seems so many others have been, besides myself.
