You can't return any item to this company and the product did nothing. A cheaper product you could return does not do better. I was going to donate the shower head (or probably any other of their products I make the mistake of trusting them to buy) to charity, but there is a risk someone might identify it from this company and buy from them. I think it best to throw it away. I plan to file a complaint against them to the Better Business Bureau.

I purchased a personal care item and it is defective. It works for 5 minutes after charging for hours. I tried to return for an exchange to give them another shot, but they do not accept returns once a package is opened. What??? I have called the original manufacturer to see if I can get anywhere with them and have not heard back yet, but this was a total, expensive rip off. Never again, Sharper Image.

    Bought 3 orders of Polaroid films. Each order is 2 boxes. So I received 3 boxes, because evidently everybody at that company thought 3 orders equate 3 boxes. It took a while to make the cs person on the phone understand. They only employ incompetent people. If this is an honest mistake, the next 2 are not. Instead of mailing me the missing half, they requested I mail the whole thing back and they mail the correct number of boxes after they receive my return. If they want proof I only get half of what I paid, I could take pic of the shipping box and products. But no, they want the most inconvenient. They now use the slowest FedEx options. It takes another 3 weeks for the return to reach them and for the correct order to reach back to me. For a terrible error 100% on their part, they punish the customer 100% rather than their incompetent workers and horrible customer service. I will not use this company anymore.

    I never received my shipment. They had Fed Ex deliver it to USPS mailroom with no signature to save cost. Never came to me and they WON'T reconcile this mistake. I keep emailing them and they throw the tracking number back at me. I re-explain that there is no tracking this package after it was dumped off at USPS. They refuse to reconcile this situation. Scandalous! Never again!

    Shaper Image has no customer service. They will lose your package and still charge you!!! You will have to call several times over several weeks that will all be futile. There is no refund! Their so called customer service is only in South Africa and Panama with a huge time difference. You ask for a supervisor but they are sleeping when it is daytime in US. They are scammers!

    If I could give this company .25 stars, that would be generous of me. I ordered a product from them before Thanksgiving and paid for express shipping so I would receive the product by Thanksgiving. It did not arrive. When I reached out to them to inquire and asked for express shipping refund, they stated they would send out another item and refund part of my shipping cost. Only part - WHAT? I did grumble about this and received a refund for the balance of the shipping cost. The 2nd item was received 8 days after the representative stated it was shipped (not expedited). I did receive the 1st item shipped 3 weeks later.

    I ordered a picture scanner. I opened the box and immediately had reservations on the quality of the product and the output it would produce. Based on the size project and the quality I was looking for, this product DID NOT deliver. I proceeded to return the product and they charged me to return it. Seriously?! As an honest consumer, I did return both items. I complained about them charging me to return and told them I would dispute the return amount. I did, but I received a note from Colleen Dillon - Senior Manager of Customer Care who apologized for my experience and wanted to refund the return charge if I canceled the dispute. I was impressed, canceled the dispute and sent proof. Needless to say I have been ghosted ever since.

    Purchased Bluetooth magnetic earbuds. Returned because they didn't work at all. Purchased again. Also defective. Spent hours and 4 calls to try to get my money refunded. Have to speak to customer service in South Africa. Hung up on me twice. Told me they refunded my money to my credit card twice, but never did. Had to have my credit card deal with them. Defective products and terrible customer service!

    Do not order from this company. They use false advertising and send you a product you could buy anywhere else for 1/2 the cost. I ordered the “Photo Vault” from them and what I actually received was the “Picture Keeper”. Had I known this is what I was ordering, I certainly would not have ordered this product from them considering any other merchant sells it for 1/2 the cost of sharper image. On the picture in their catalog and on their website it displays a different product than what they are actually selling. When you try to contact customer service, you cannot get anyone on the line. They do not respond to emails. Customer service is essentially nonexistent. Don’t bother reviewing their products on their website.. They will not let any negative reviews appear. This is not a reputable company and buyer beware! If I could give zero stars I would.

    I have ordered a few items as Christmas gifts for my husband. 2 of them did not work at all and came in a damaged box. I was willing to overlook the damaged box as long as items worked. They didn't & I attempted to return them. The company's stated policy is that they accept returns no questions asked if not used. They did not state that a right to return is void as soon as a customer opens the box. This is called Bait and Switch, which is still illegal. Their explanation was that because it was a personal item, once the box is opened, they don't accept returns. All they sell are personal items and they claim on the website that these items are refundable. Very dishonest and underhanded.

    Original review: Dec. 27, 2021

    I made a purchase December 6, 2021 for a thermal printer I thought was for receipts but it was not what I wanted after seeing a more elaborate product description on Amazon for the same item. On December 8, 2021 I tried contacting Sharper Image on how to return the item and I was directed to their FAQ for Returns. One option was to reject the package. Which I intended to do but the mail system these days don’t ring bells, they just throw packages up on the porch. So when I saw the package I took it back to the post office and marked it “Return to Sender.” That was on December 11, 2021. It is now December 27, 2021 and I still have no return receipt status and no refund.

    I attempted to contact Sharper Image several time prior to 12/27/2021 through phone and only keeps you on hold for hours. So I sent an email and after 3 emails no response. I finally got a response on December 21, 2021 and Michelle stated that once the warehouse receives the return it takes 5-7 days to process a refund. However, it’s December 27, 2021 and I still have no refund and no update on the receipt of the return.

    This company is far from anything decent. I just want my money back. It does not take this long to receive a return back and process a refund. Especially when they shipping my order on 12/8/21 and it was delivered on 12/11/21. The return time should be the same for the most part. I’ve returned things in the mail to other companies after I did this company’s return and I’ve already received those refunds. So what is up with this company.
