Not MY Pillow
Not MY Pillow
In this country we have way too much time on our hands. The things we find to complain about or feel cheated about, boggles the mind. The latest is a big hoo-ha over claims by the much advertised “My Pillow.”
Here are some My Pillow claims:
My Pillow claims it is the best and last pillow you will ever own. You will sleep better without neck pain, wake refreshed, have better self-esteem, make more money and marry a supermodel.
My pillow claims it is the "Official Pillow of the National Sleep Foundation."
The founder took 10 years to develop a patented fill that is washable and dryable and maintains it’s shape.
The Complaints of false advertizing:
The founder of My Pillow is not a sleep expert.
My Pillow is a PILLOW…it will not change your life.
AND…horrors of horrors-
My Pillow advertised that you buy one and get one free while they really just raised the price of one pillow so you really are buying two pillows at one price.
There have been law suits over the My Pillow rip-off and My Pillow settled basically by giving everyone involved a $5 settlement and probably the lawyers several hundred thousand dollars.
Thank God we are saved from this deceptive advertising.
It is a pillow people! It cost about $50. A good pillow cost from 40 – 80 dollars, so it’s in range.
Does anyone, except a complete idiot, really believe a pillow will change their life?
Does anyone not know that if you pay enough money you can have your product endorsed by an impressive sounding organization. The National Sleep Foundation was probably started by the My Pillow developer…who cares?
Who is a sleep expert? Are there colleges offering majors is “Sleep Expert?” How is that even an occupation? Who cares?
It took ten years to develop this pillow? Who would brag about this?
Why am I even posting about a stupid pillow?
I was just fascinated that the company was sued because their pitch buy-one-get-one-free was deceptive. DUH! I’m pretty sure every-buy-one-get-one-free has a catch. In some cases the free item comes with an inflated shipping and handling fee, in some cases the price of one is inflated. Who cares?
So now after much legal wrangling and several wealthier lawyers the pillow buying public is saved from the My Pillow deceptive claim “Buy-one-get-another pillow free.”
The current ad claims you can buy two pillows at one low price!
There, that’s better.
It’s a pillow for crap sake!
