While ordering my "FreeSnuggie" I noticed that there was an opportunity to get free shipping and handling, so what the heck, I ordered TWO sets of Snuggies, for a total of four Snuggies total. The second set was offered at a discounted price of $14.95, down from the original price of $19.95
While ordering, you are not shown how much the shipping and handling actually is ($7.45 PER blanket). When checking out, it is revealed that for four Snuggies (and the two book lights they throw in as freebies), the shipping and handling is a whopping $31.80! The products cost $34.90 and the shipping is $31.80!
When receiving my confirmation via email, there was a link to a site where you could get the cost of your shipping and handling rebated. This service has a free 30 day trial, then costs $8.95 per month. I suspected another rip-off situation and did not subscribe even for the free trial.
I called Snuggie to cancel my order and even though they said it would take a few days to process and ship my order (which I placed yesterday), they said my order was already in process and that I would not be able to cancel at this point. Plus, if I decided to return the Snuggies, I would still be charged the shipping and handling cost. So, clearly, they got me coming and going!
I am appauled to read all the comments here about this company and their underhanded practices. I, for one, can tell you that all the negative claims are true! Do not buy anything from this company!
