Any experience with Free Golf Clubs?
Question:I signed up a year ago for a golf Magazine. They promised me free items for just doing an evaluation. I received emails as follows:
"Our records indicate you have been a loyal customer of ours for years. It's customers like you that have enabled us to become a dominant force in the golf club industry. As a way of saying thanks for all your past business, we would like to give you an absolutely free* Christmas gift. This is a golf product grab bag full of golf products valued at over $500. These grab bags have included executive golf collectables, golf balls, sunglasses and MUCH MORE! Just call 800-682-1352 as soon as possible so we can ship before Christmas. Your VIP gift redemption code is SR19. Also while you're at it, ask about our new kid's sets and women's sets for Christmas gifts."
Has anybody ever tried taking them up on this? Is it a scam?
Usually too good to be true - really is.
If so, I'd recommend you just ignore it. Let's face it - you get what you pay for. Good golf clubs cost money.
A friend of mine signed up to demo Warrior clubs. He ended up trying to send them back (prior to paying for them per their guarantee). The guy basically sales-called him until he just took them at a fraction of the price.
I guarantee your "golf product grab bag" is:
a. Full of worthless crap.
b. NOT free (see "just for doing an evalulation").
c. A waste of time.
d. A gateway to being called by this company for years to come.
My buddy had to basically pay them with a credit card for a set of clubs, and had 30 days to try them. If he shipped them back within 30 days, they would fully refund. If not, the charge would stick. When he called them, the guy basically knocked the price down 80% so he didn't have to get them back. I'm sure he didn't lose money on it - so take that for what it's worth.
