Happy November!

Thursday, November 01, 2007

It is a new month, and things are looking good. I can't believe its November already. I've been working on my blog a lot the past day or two. Checking links and moving a few things around. Had to resign up at a couple of blog directories, and drop ones that are no longer working. Sites seem to disappear all the time! With it being November, that means a lot of writers are starting on National Novel Writing Month. I've done it in the past, and I considered it this year, but it just isn't for me right now. However, I am going to be taking part in NaBloPoMo or National Blog Posting Month, which means you will see at least one post from me every day this month. Sometimes more depending on things. It'll get me back into the swing of things here.

Yesterday, my brother went down to sign our lease. I've mentioned our new building owners here before, and they are still working to change this building around. Yesterday, they told my brother they were remodeling every single apartment. New flooring, carpeting, paint jobs and all new cabinets. Everything will be upgraded. This is good news because about a year ago, they did work on our bathroom and ruined the flooring in there. Flooring is so easy to mess up, and once it is ruined, you need all new flooring put in. That costs money. iFLOOR knows this, and with their floors they have warranty. That in my mind saves us the consumer in the long run. Not a bad thing really.

Here is more you can read on iFloor:
iFLOOR, America's largest online flooring retailer, today announced a $1,000,000 limited warranty designed to protect its customers from predatory manufacturer policies that exclude warranty coverage from online purchases.

The policy, which goes into effect immediately, offers up to one million dollars of coverage in the event that a customer's warranty claim is denied specifically because they made their purchase online. It is complimentary for every iFLOOR customer, and protects the buyer under the same terms as the original product warranty.

iFLOOR, Inc. CEO, Steve Simonson, came up with the program to combat "scare tactics" used by manufacturers of hardwood floors and laminate flooring. "Their idea is to discourage you from buying at a discount!" wrote Simonson in his blog "It's About Flooring". "This is not right! You deserve to save money! So we're going to take care of this problem once and for all."

And it would appear that federal law is on his side. Section 108 of the 1975 Magnuson-Moss Act, states that, "In general, tie-in sales provisions are not allowed. Such a provision would require a purchaser of the warranted product to buy an item or service from a particular company to use with the warranted product in order to be eligible to receive a remedy under the warranty."

Under iFLOOR's new warranty, a key provision allows for iFLOOR to "seek justice" on behalf of the customer in the event of legal action. According to Simonson, "I'm putting iFLOOR's money where my mouth is."
