    Default Have you seen the Sebo chair ad?

    The Sebo chair ad has been on the TV for some weeks now and each time it is shown it has the line; "Be one of the first sixteen to call."

    Do they mean to say that after the few weeks the ad has been shown they have yet to have had sixteen callers? That does not say much for the product.

    No its a marketing ploy.

    Meaning if you are 1 of the 1st 16 callers you get the product, as its a limited offer ( type thing) So what they are really trying to get you to believe is there are many callers, but only 16 Available.

    Its TOTAL BS !! "if" there were lots of callers they wouldn't tell you if you were caller 17 onwards - Sorry to late, of course they would sell you what ever it is.

    Its like the marketing that says they have only 1 or 2 items left be in quick - BS!!

    They work on the fear factor of missing out if you don't buy the product now.

    One of the As seen on TV ads, it said call within the next 15 minutes or Similar -- We were wanting what was advertised, had seen the ad weeks before, and called the following day -- no problems ordering and receiving.

    I wouldn't buy anything off them. It's all overpriced copies of stuff you can get elsewhere, cheaper and better quality., and their terms are nasty.
    And they have sneaky tactics, you know the call answerers are not allowed to deal, they pass you on to others, if you balk at cost they can reduce 24%, if you still balk, then 505%.

    But they are not allowed to tell you that nor do it without making every effort to prevent it.
    As for returns thats a whole other rort.

    Yeah, they are essentially a trap. I would stay as far away from them as possible.
