This is one of those companies that makes you come to a presentation which is really just a high pressure sales environment. They lure you in with promises of prizes and free gifts. Go for it if you think you can say no to their sales pitch long enough to get any sort of freebies out of it. It’s similar to time share presentations.

I had something simular happen to me only it was china wear, they claimed we won toasting flutes, and a two night stay in a hotel vocher that could be used any where in the world, we are suprosed to go tomorrow to the presenation/dinner thing but after I spoke to my FI we decided that they could just keep the prizes and it wasn’t worth us wasting our time. These things always make we wearly that they are a scam though.

I’ve been called a half dozen times for those. However, I’d never signed up for anything, David’s Bridal actually sold my information to them. ( I think that’s what it was when I’d done some research). Needless to say, we never went. They finally stopped calling when I told them to take me off their calling list.

These things usually come with high limitations and no coverage of fees. Otherwise they wouldn’t be able to give them out to literally anyone who looks in their direction.

@Brittanyrio:  I was invited to a presentation from this company after attending a bridal expo. They basically work like timeshare presentations. They try to convince you that their products are top of the line and a good price ($4600 for a 15-piece cookware set, including a free cutlery set), which they then “slash” their price for a limited time “today only” discount. It’s really a scam though, we researched similar products online and we found an almost identical set made from the same material (surgical stainless steel), with the same “waterless cooking” gimmick, which cost about $300. We still got our free prizes though! We received our voucher for a free hotel stay and a free registration for a website that gives you coupons. The guy was a complete douche when we weren’t going to buy any of his products. 

I would suggest if you are able to go in and not “feel bad” saying no, then it’s worth sitting through an hour and a half presentation of some guy trying to sell you on his products and getting a free prize at the end with a dirty look from said guy. Honestly, this company makes me sick that they pray on young couples just starting out that don’t know much about the products out on the market, by telling them “you deserve nice things” and “look how much time this saves you”. Also their point of comparison was Williams Sonoma which is infamous for marking up their prices 1000% what they’re worth.
