I ordered FREE SNUGGIES on the internet on Dec. 16,2008 in hopes that I would receive my order by Christmas because they were Christmas gifts. THE cost for 1 snuggie and a free one was $19.95. SHIPPING AND HANDLING was $15.50. THE total came to $35.85. I paid twice for S&H. THIS is now Jan. 9TH, and I have NOT RECEIVED MY ORDER. They even gave me an ORDER #.

Be aware Getsnuggie.com states on bottom of site: 2-6 weeks for delivery.

AUTHOR: Wilson - (U.S.A.)

Technically the Snuggie company is not ripping people off because they are stating on their website $7.95 postage & handling for each paid snuggie and $7.95 postage & handling for each free snuggie, thus $15.90 postage & handling per each set of two snuggies.

The following is stated on getsnuggie.com.
Please Allow 2-6 weeks for Delivery.
* All Products Have a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee (Minus p&h)

Don't buy Snuggies. Deceptive pricing. Buy Slankets from QVC.com.

The Snuggie company does not tell you on their getsnuggie.com website or on their telephone ordering system that they charge you $7.95 for EACH Snuggie. So if you chose to pay for two Snuggies and got two for "free", you have to pay the outrageious $7.95 for each lightweight Snuggie. I think the Snuggie company only sells the products in sets and thus they make a lot of profit on the postage and handling of $7.95 per Snuggie.

I had purchased the comparable Slanket from QVC.com, which I received in four business days, and the Slanket is very comfortable and weights next to nothing. My three Slankets came in one box and QVC only charged me $11 for total shipping and handling.

Snuggie charges

$19.95 x 2= $39.90 (Snuggies, you pay for 2 snuggies, you get 2 free)

$7.95 x 4 = $31.80 (shipping for 4 snuggies)
=====
Total $71.70

NOTHING IS FREE IN AS SEEN ON TV PRODUCTS ADS -THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN RIPOFFS

AUTHOR: Laurie - (U.S.A.)

They actually charge you for the FREE one - because the As Seen on TV price is TWICE what you pay if you wait a few weeks and buy it in the stores.

They also over charge for shipping too.

FIGURE IT OUT - DO NOT BUY AS SEEN ON TV PRODUCTS FROM THE AD - WAIT FOR IT TO COME OUT IN THE STORES AT HALF THE PRICE - AND NO SHIPPING FEES - NO WAITING FOR A DELIVERY THAT NEVER COMES.
