I bought a Tread climber from Bowflex that went on fire. I called and wrote letters to Bowflex. Not one person had the decency to call me back; so I stopped payment. Well now ICS is after me. I tried to explain what is going on and decided I would make payments to shut them up. The operator from ICS gave me the website and ref. #. When I proceeded to the page I could not make a payment. I am done...
For the worse. I purchased the Bowflex 14 years ago. I have constantly had to replace the wheels on the seat. They are poorly designed. The unit itself has worked well. My complaint is that the company no longer makes this model and the new models are looking flimsy. In other words, in my opinion, they have changed. I would be very wary of doing business with a company that will not stand behind it's product. Oh, by the way, they used to change the wheels for me for free. Now, they say, the wheels, which are poorly designed, are a wear item and they cost $40 every 4 to 5 months to replace. Something is not right about that. Eventually, they will stop providing them altogether and I will have to throw the machine out. The phone rep said I ought to think about upgrading. Hint, hint. In other words, Bowflex, is trying to sell me some new junk. I am very disappointed. Go elsewhere.
When I called and talked to the sales rep, I asked if the Bowflex would come with everything I need to put a training program together. When you get the Bowflex and put it together and then watch the training dvd. You find out you can purchase a training dvd or other training material after dishing out almost $2000.00 You would think after spending that kind of money the reps wouldn't have to be dishonest to people buying equipment. When I got the equipment home also the special financing deal they offer is only good for a year. What they don't tell you is that those $10 -$30 monthly payments jump up to over $150 per month after a year if you don't get your home gym paid off right away. so beware.
I'm;a customer of bowflex i got my bowflex it did not work i called bowflex they sent me and my husband faxes to try to fix my bowflex did not work we got many faxes about 7 we could not fix it i told them to take the bowflex back i never used it this went on for about 5 or 6 months got no answer. then they call me well the bank called i said i'm not paying i never used it. then bowflex said can i sell the bowflex i said it dose not work.no i wont.then they said if i would send it back it would be done. i call fed-x to see how much it would cost it was 450.oo to sent back i said no way.i talked to bowflex again and they said that's all they can do.so im stuck with a 3000.00 dollar bill for something i never used. now i hope no one else gets treated like i did is not a good company. signed, really disappointed.
I participated in a 6 wk free trial period advertised by BowFlex. I received my home gym. Despite telling the rep I wasn't ready to place order. Was only calling for the specs of the home gym and find out price if I decided to keep. I said that at least 2 to 3 times. The rep made me feel as if I had to order after my cred was approved.
He told me didn't matter, I could just send back and I wouldn't have to pay. He told me all I had to pay was shipping back.( Not for their cost to ship to me, that was not made clear) I was getting bills before my free 6 wk trial period was up. Was told to disregard since I was returning product.
Got another notice stating it was now up from $20 to $80 because of late fee's. Had to pay to keep off of credit report. I was told upon receiving the gym I would be fully refunded by check. It cost me a total of $80.00 in payments. It cost me $211.76 to ship back. And now their charging me $135.24 for their cost to ship me the gym.
At first they told me it was to cover the missing pieces to the home gym(UPS lost one of the box's. How do you lose a 4ft 75lb box? I dunno), then later I was told it was for their shipping cost. So now if the Better Business Bureau doesn't step in to help me? Or the Attorney Generals Office when I can get my complaint filed I will be out a total of $427.00.
And my $80.00 that was to be returned? Well I was informed that it was applied to my bill, and left me with the $135.24 total. I have learned a hard, expensive lesson. One I could not afford. Was hoping to get refunded before Christmas. Not going to happen now if at all. Stay away from ordering anything from BowFlex or Nautilus. Their hand in hand.
Those BowFlex commercials make you want to punch those actors in the face...not go buy a bowflex!!!
Mainly Brian something-or-other, the one that 'gave his fat clothes to his fat friends'...I seriously doubt he has ANY friends now! I bet they hunted him down and farted in his Cheerios after that comment. And how he 'gets that wink from his wife now and then'??? I bet that wink is for some other guy standing behind him! What an egotistical jerk!
Is that what Bowflex is selling? Huge annoying egos? How about including a big boxfull of ###-for-brains, too?
Oh and that Michael Pilenko guy? Living his dream? Playing in a rock band at age 49...If he was no good 20 years ago, he's no good now. (and he's been 49 for almost what...4 years now?) (Notice how you can't even hear actual music he's playing, it's dubbed over with the bowflex ad).
Well, obviously the line "I'm not ashamed to take my shirt off" was written for them both, but we all think they need to keep those shirts on, practice some manners, and gain a bit of modesty.
It would be so nice to see someone that has a nice body from using their product, that encourages others to get fit without the huge ego. How about a nice polite, 'look what I did for myself, and you can, too' commercial, without that cocky "I'm better than you" attitude. So degrading of Bowflex to allow these commercials, they should know better. I bet sales have dropped since airing those 2 machoists.
Grrrr...get them off the air! Clean up some space to sell me something useful! I sure could use an armchair beverage holder, or something to prop my feet on while I gripe at my tv when these commercials come on...
Does anyone know if what they are doing is legal? How can they close our accts and then keep billing us the interest. Payments don't post on time, and then we get billed the delinquency charges. We recvd a phone call today saying our acct # didn't match. Our statement said payment was recvd on time, but they are now saying it was returned do to wrong acct # and now have to pay a delinqueny charge and a return charge. What a crock!!!
