Jarrring - reason for return
Listen, if I bought a rebounder and they told me it wouldn't invert my ankles or jar me, I should be able to return it and not pay a restocking fee. If anyone is concerned about a rebounder not being right for them, I would get it in writing on what you expect for a return if it doesn't meet the expectations the manufacturer claims.
Health bounce not able to do
Ok, this is one of the biggest of all complaints of all time. This is more with bungees rebounders as many people buy bungee rebounders and get home and expect to do the Health bounce for lymphatic rebounding. For the record, on a bungee rebounders, you have to jump high, get a higher amplitude, to stretch out the bands. If anyone thinks they can get 3 G forces by barely leaving the mat where the bungee cords barely stretch and get that G force that will flush their lymphatic system, I just simply can't deal with people that are this ignorant. It's not my job to explain physics for those people that just really want the bungee and keep asking the same question 100 different ways because they want me to tell them something differently. NO.. A BUNGEE IS NOT A REBOUNDER I RECOMMEND FOR LYMPHATIC REBOUNDING.
Rebounding should be detoxing. Someone that has to return a rebounder because the rubber off-gassing is giving them a headache should be able to without a restocking fee. Rubber stinks when I leave a rebounder with rubber feet in my car, even if its in the carrying case. That just makes it hotter. You don't really smell it unless you put your nose up to it but still, I don't want that rubber off-gassing in my home.
Free stuff not included:
With some brands, they don't even offer a cover or a protective cushion for their rebounder. Some companies don't offer the case for free and make you buy a carrying case. Free shipping is another thing. This is also another way to tell if an authorized dealer is authorized. If they charge you the shipping during their 30 day return policy, and if they gave you free shipping, then that must mean you don't have to pay the original shipping if you decide to return it. This would make their return policy false since they didn't charge shipping. Places like Amazon offer free shipping and many times they are not authorized dealers. Also, about holiday coupons. Many of these companies have a higher retail price on their site but on holidays or when they want to make the customer feel there is a legitimate reason to discount, they offer free shipping. A bungee rebounder can cost 90 bucks to ship. Many people get angry when they get a coupon in their email for $100 off and free shipping. Thats 190 bucks off a bungee rebounder is this happens. Cyber Monday, Memorial Day, 4th of July, New Years or Christmas Sale are the most popular times these coupons are emailed. My best advice if you want to see what I mean is to sign up to be put on their mailing list. Or email the manufacturer a question. Wait a few weeks, or even a month, and watch to see if any coupons come in. If you don't bite on the first coupon, they usually send a better coupon the 2nd time. I have copies of all the coupons from almost every rebounder company since 2004. Better than the coupons, are the prices for the same rebounders they charge in 2004 till now. These rebounders have went up in price almost double since then. The Cellerciser is the only one that was the same price for all this time although now they charge 25 shipping. The 2004 Cellerciser is nearly the same price as it is today. They were 365 back in the day when they first came out while most of them were 190 to 220. The Needak and ReboundAir for example, have raised their prices several times since 2004.
Prorated warranties are something that really pisses people off down the road. This is problem that happens after a while after people have had their rebounders. If you have a 36 springs that have a 2 year warranty and after a year they break and you need a new set, guess what they prorate the cost and if 50% of the warranty was left and you had a year left of warranty, they make you pay 50% of the spring cost. I doubt they care as the still aren't losing any money. If the springs stretch out, thats not covered as that is considered normal wear and tear. Oh and guess what, on that next set of springs, they might not have the 2 year warranty anymore. Either way, most people get screwed over when they realize what the real warranty is. This is why I like rebounders that are strait up with their warranties. The Cellerciser has the longest warranty, 5 years on everything. If a spring break 4 years later, they will replace it. The thing I like about Cellerciser is if one spring breaks, you don't gotta change all 36 of the springs since they are self adjusting to my weight. With most spring rebounders, if one spring now has a higher tensile strength than all the others, this is when problems occur.
