I saw the ad on tv about the wrap around colored glasses. Thought that would be a good thing to have since they fit over your regular glasses. I ordered two pair, one for me and one for my daughter. They came and the glasses were pretty good although they slip a little over your glasses. Then I saw the invoice!! They had said I ordered three pair, and here is how they charged me, I thought I was buying 2 pair, with the night vision pair (free), each of the colored glasses for 19.99 plus 5.98 shipping (they are really charging you 12.00 for each pair with the night vision and they don't weigh more than a feather):
sub total: 59.97
Sales tax 0
I almost dropped over! I called their customer service and told them I wanted to return both glasses because I felt I had been ripped off. I had to talk to two people. The first argued that I had probably mistakenly ordered 3 pair and even tho I didn't get it they didn't get it back. The second person finally gave me credit for the third pair and will give me credit for the 2 when I return them. It still cost me the 38.94 for the shipping plus shipping to send them back. I DO NOT recommend ordering any item from this company. All products have their own website but if you order, the invoice will list idea village as the place to call for customer service. Beware of over priced shipping and handling charges and check invoice for added items you didn't order....

On a similar note, I heard a CBC radio guest the other day say he'd been researching infomercials. In a nutshell, he said most are quite ingenius and effective at conning people into buying products, but most products don't live up to the hoopla in the ads.
Buyer beware? If it's such a good product, why does it take them an extra length ad to sell it? Wait till your neighbor buys it and then ask neighbor what they think.
I did that with that loudmouthed schnook, Billy May's miracle putty. Friend got 3 or 4 tubes of this goo and it doesn't work any better than any other product except he paid (after shipping and handling) something like $20 a tube for stuff that's only as good as that from stores that sell tubes of goo for $8 or $9.
