After SIGG USA announced that their metal water bottles contained plastic additive BPA, they offered to exchange consumers’ offending bottles for new ones. Karen sent her BPA-riddled water bottles in for replacement, and received her gift certificate to buy two new ones for a total of $46.98. But something went horribly wrong, and now she has a store credit for just under $50,000.
Reader Macezilla, who sent us this tale, mused,
She is still deciding what to do, but swears that she really isn’t going to buy $1,000 worth of Sigg bottles……..but I have a feeling that I know what everyone is going to get from her for Christmas.
Well, let’s hope not. No matter how dehydrated they might be, it would be hard to find a use for two thousand metal water bottles.
We knew this replacement program would be expensive for the company, but we didn’t think it was that bad.
