A Rant

Normally, I don't use my blog here for anything but funny stories, cute kitty pix and to show you the stuff I'm making.  But today I am going to rant and hopefully, warn you guys not to buy this product.

The product is the Schticky brand roller thing to pick up pet hair.  We bought one from Amazon and it worked great for 3 entire days.  Then it was no longer sticky and therefore, useless.

I emailed the Schticky people and they said basically, oh, we can't help you, you need to call.  So, I called.  I got this guy with a heavy accent who informed me that no, Schticky does NOT stand behind their product unless you buy it from them and then they want another 8 bucks in postage.  I asked the guy twice...so, you do NOT stand behind your product simply because I bought it from Amazon.com.  He said, yes, that's right.  I said thanks and hung up and went to Amazon who kindly sent me a mail back label and will refund our money.

So, friends, please do NOT buy a Schticky product.  It's a piece of crap.  My friend bought one, too, and had the exact same problem.  Her's lasted 3 days, also.  I say boycott, at all costs, this lousy product and please tell all your friends not to waste their money.
Ok, no more rant.  :)

Wow - thanks for the warning. Did you leave a review on Amazon? You should post something there about how you got your money back but it's worthless garbage, etc.

Thanks, Kat, I just did as you suggested. I also posted on the forum. I'm trying to get to as many people as possible. What a rip off! :::picture moe snarling here::::

AT least you got your $$ back from Amazon. I wasn't so lucky. But I don't mind telling everyone it's a piece of crap. Just spread the word. Mine is Sticky brand - without the 'ch' in the name. Still the same thing and worthless. Just pass the word around.

You're welcome, Trina. Tell your friends! :) Best way to stop people like this is to hit them in the wallet

Ang, did you get yours from Amazon? They are really good about returns.

Bummer, what a shame. Thanks for the warning. I've used a lint/pet hair remover called "PikUpStik" by Sunshine Industries for years and I love it. When it gets full and is no longer sticky you just "place mild liquid soap on the roller, massage it into the roller with your hands, rinse with warm water and allow to air dry. Must be kept out of direct sunlight and extreme heat."
