Heh, I bet this product will do extremely well. It almost looks theraputic.

My mother has some pretty serious physical disabilities. I'm going to send her one of these. In fact, I'll probably get one for Tsu and I to try as well.

Watch out for the upgrade price!!! Somehow my order ended up at $50! :rofl: I wasn't really paying attention and just went ahead and clicked on the upgrade. For that I get two delux feet [one is allegedly free]. The shipping and handling was $23, which is where the money is really made on this stuff.

I've known about that gaff for a while. Second one free, just pay for shipping and handling. Yeah, uh, huh.

But wait!

Does that mean that the original Easy Feet are unsanitary?

Edited to add: "easy feat"? *groan*

A few years ago there was some company advertising an "Italian" espresso machine that used these little dedicated modules filled with coffee. If you bought the machine, you got coffee "free for life", plus shipping and handling. It was pretty obvious that the shipping and handling fees were far greater than the value of the coffee.

I haven't seen it advertised for some time now, so apparently their little scam didn't work.

As for Easy Feet, we will see. I have probably purchased three products from a TV commercial, with this being the third. The emory cat scratcher was 2, and I can't remember the first, but I'm sure there one other thing sometime back...

Oh yes! I once ordered a set of Ginsu knives that never showed up. The company cashed my check and went out of business. Then they magically appeared on TV again some years later.

Wow, that's good information to have, Ivan, about purchasing off of tv commercials. I generally wait until I find the item in an As Seen On TV store, if I buy the thing at all. Eventually, someone else makes a similar, and generally better, product that you can buy retail.

Also, stuff in teevee infomercials tend to be so gimicky that they seem reasonable in the middle of the night and not-so-much in the light of day. Although you did like the cat scratching thing, yes?

Only one out of four cats used it, but Isaac pretty much lived on it. :biggrin: He probably clawed at it >10 times a day. Often, at some point in the day he'd just lay down and sleep on it. He absolutely loved it.

Isaac was the one who had issues with claw trimming. Within two days of getting the emory cat, Isaac's claws were a non-issue. Within a week or two he barely had stubs left. It was actually rather impressive.

I probably should have looked around, but as you know, the situation with my mother has been pretty intense. I thought it worth trying this one right away. If it prevents an accident, the price is nothing. With my father gone now, we worry about her having an accident when no one is around, such as when she's in the shower. She uses a shower chair, but washing her feet must be tough given her limitations.

I got a sales call from someone with the company trying to sell me something else, but I am still footless.

Easy Feet appears to be a scam from the Sales Side

I too thought the product looked really good. I'm not a person who ever buys based on seeing a commerical or infomerical, but this time I did, going to the online website, thinking that would be faster... my first mistake.

Whomever set up this website obviously designed it to optomize confusion. I've been on the web since Netscape first came out in the beginning, I have white papers at Microsoft, have 4 degrees and have been a legal professional for over 20 years, but I couldn't follow it.

I just wanted to get a pair of them, and expected to pay $14.99, since they give you one free and shipping, but when I was done I was charged $61.34. Along the way I assumed that I would get an order screen where I could amend my Order before finalizing it... but NOOO. There was a telephone number at the bottom and I called for 45 minutes, but no one would answer. Then I got on the phone with my bank, figuring that I would just cancel the transaction, but discovered I couldn't do that until the transaction showed up. That took another 15 minutes. Then I called EasyFeet back and they actually answered on the 3rd time (5 minutes). But their customer service people said that they wouldn't have the order for 24 hours so that I would have to call back again.

During my legal career I've made contact with the Arizona Attorney General's Office and used those to make my last telephone call. They're going to be investigating.

These guys may have a great product, but they need to fix all the problems they have in how they sell it if they want to stay in business. Until they do, and I doubt they wil since they appear to be an overseas operation, I would advise everyone to stay away. They just don't smell right.

Thanks for the warning, UnRhino! Socks that don't smell right...that's not good.

I haven't tried yet. I was going to allow six weeks. Given UnRhino's experience, I don't expect to have much luck if/when I try calling.

Six weeks just sounds like an outrageously long amount of time.

I think my feet would be too ticklish for something like that. I could see it being helpful for someone who has limited mobility and can't bend down to wash their feet well, but it's not going to fix those cracked heels they show in the ad; those are callouses that need to be filed down (though that emory cat scratching thing might work on them :rofl:).

So far, the only thing I've gotten out of the deal is tons of spam! My email box is a mess.

I think the Emory Cat could be used to file down a steel beam. :rofl:

You haven't seen my feet lately. I think I could walk over burning coals with these calluses. :frown:
