I purchased a product protection plan for two items I bought from Radio Shack. WHen both failed (headphones), I called to get them replaced per the plan. I was told that I had to take the items into my local Radio Shack for them to be inspected. I took my item into the Radio Shack store in the Greenway Shopping Center (7000 block of Greenbelt Road)in Greenbelt, Maryland. The clerk, Chris, inspected the item and called teh Service plan office at 800 433 5502. He was to mail the items to  the Service plan and I was to recieve a voucher by email within 4 - 24 hours following the mailing, which I would be able to use in the store to re-purchase new headphones. This all happened on Friday, November 12.

I did not get the emailed voucher and called the service plan again on Thursday, November 18. When the plan called the Greenbelt store, they were told by the manager that she had no recollection of the transaction. I called the service plan again on Friday, NOvember 19 and was told that I had to contact the store for the items and I was responsible for ensuring that the items got to the replacement plan, even though the store now had the items and there was a record of the call between the clerk and the store. I was told by the agent that I would not get my money back unless the service plan got the tracking number of the FedEx package the store used to send the items back.

The agent on the phone went so far as to tell me he had to get off the line with me and answer other people's calls when I suggested a conference call with  he, myself, and the store that I would make immediately. Needless to say, when I tried to conference us, he mysteriously dropped off the call on Friday. So, I called the store on Saturday and spoke with Chris, the clerk who handled the transaction when I went in on Friday, NOvember 11. He said FedEx had picked up the items on Monday, NOvember 15. He had not called and given the service center the tracking number. I want my money back and write this to warn others to think twice/thrice, before purchasing the plan.
