Sony offered a replacement TV to my Dad because his Wega TV had an optical blocker go out ($500 replacement part). They told him they would send him a coupon for Sony Style to help with a replacement. They never sent the coupon. When he asked about his coupon--"OH! your coupon is not valid anymore. However, we can upsell if you have some more money on these TVs," they said. The replacement offer was because he was a "valued customer." However, no one at Sony ever instructed him to keep the small sticker on the TV that has some stupid number, so his offer that stood, fell. He spoke to everyone in Sony Management that was willing to speak and continuelly was told that because he didn't keep the sticker, there was nothing that could be done. NO ONE SAID KEEP A STICKER!! This is a Sony scam. They tell you that you are a great customer, tell you they have a great deal, and then tell you they actually don't value you because you didn't assume to keep a sticker when they said they could replace it for some great offer. Some great customer. Stickers...stick it where the sun isn't Sony.
