With your order, youll get 1 Double Size Bottle of Wipe New for $19.99 and $7.99 S&P, PLUS 1 Detail Kit, which includes: 2 yellow Wipe New applicator cloths, 1 red headlight applicator, 1 blue headlight polishing block, 1 detail brush and 1 pair of nitrile gloves all you pay is an additional $7.99 for S&P. Lets be as outrageous as this offer and say that the total product weight is the same as shipping a 12oz. bottle of soda.
That would be a lot of Wipe New liquid. The bottle shown is around a 6 or 8 oz. max, Id even bet the farm that it s less than that amount Im a thermoformer, I know what I know. Notice how nowhere in any material offered is the actual size and weight of the bottle given. The light weight gloves, foam products and the plastic detail brush all accounted for in my weight. Lets take the worst case, Non-commercial rates. U.S. Postal rates as of January 22, 2012. 12 oz. ships in large envelop for $3.10 anywhere in the U.S. Package rate is $3.48.
Lets bump shipping weight up to a whole pound. Large envelope $5.15, package rate $5.15 dead even. The company is charging you twice for the same offer. First the actual product then the Plus kit. That all totals $15.90. Subtract the max
shipping and the company gain is $10.80, way more than enough to pay for the so-called free stuff. Lets look at the actual product offered. Anyone in the free world can purchase a 20 oz. bottle of what is generically referred to as automotive clear or poly for on average $12.95. The amazing Wipe New product works the same.
The offer is $19.95. No where does the size appear. My company uses automotive clear or poly to restore shine to acrylics and plastic. In my honest opinion this offer sure sounds like the same that appeared way back in the 80s called Auri. The Federal Trade Commission shut that all down and I believe someone went to jail. Perhaps a call to the FTC is due on this one just to assure consumer protection. In short, consumers are buying the Wipe New product not being told how much they
are getting; that unknown is offered as being doubled, what a deal right!; purchasers get a hand full of goody extras included in the Plus kit; all consumers pay is the deal price of $19.99 and S & P times two. Your $19.99 turns into $35.89 real quick. Perhaps all that extra S & P is to recover the processing costs for the very bad service and the over the top additional advertizing callers are subjected to when calling both companies.I called the number listed on the Wipe New website hoping to fare better on getting answers to my concerns then I got when calling the TV offer number.
