A quick update on the ongoing CFL saga:
On Monday I called Feit Electric since their name was stamped on the side of the bulb base. I had minimal expectations since I had no receipt and no original packaging.
I simply went to the "contacts" page, found an 800 number and dialed it. I must have got their front desk since an actual person answered. (How about that, no press 1 for English). I started to blert out "I am a consumer blah blah blah," when the receptionist said "Oh you want custmer service"
I was floored. And it only got better.
Another person answered (right away I might add) and asked for the numbers printed on the base of the bulb. I read them off and he said "Ok Thanks"
I thought here we go, wada-mean OK thanks.
I said "that's it?"
He said "you should have two new blubs in 2-3 weeks."
I was stunned.
Come on Don't you want to haggle? You ask if I have a receipt, I call you crazy, that sort of stuff? Come on.
I still am not getting my hopes up. I'll post if and when they come in.
