Can I get something for nothing?  What’s the catch?

Is this for real?
Has the era of the free lunch returned?
It seems to be too good to be true!
What’s the catch?

We are bombarded by offers of free internet, free cell phones, free test drives, free samples, and yes, free home security systems.  We see them on late night cable TV.  We see them in the Sunday newspaper.  We see them in our favorite magazines.  We see them at trade shows.  In Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii, we even have them knocking on our doors at dinner time.  Though the sales pitch will vary; “I’ll trade you a yard sign  for a free alarm system”.  “If you buy a solar system, I’ll throw in a free home security system too”.  “If you introduce me to 2 of your neighbors, I’ll reward you with a free burglar alarm system”.  “We want to get a foothold in the neighborhood, and will to give you a free security alarm system if we can use you as an advertising referral, but Shhhhh!  Don’t tell your neighbors that yours was free”.  Blah, blah blah, blah blah, blah blah.

Listen past the pitch, the messages are all the same.  Sign up today, and we will install an alarm system for FREE….. <Read further down the contract to find the catch>….. $199-$399 activation fee, $49-$69 monthly charge, 3-5 year monitoring contract, automatic renewals, automatic annual rate increases, and on, and on, and on…..

Free Home Alarm SystemsDoes it still sound like a free lunch?  Does it make sense that a business is going to give you $500.00 or more worth of alarm equipment and labor for nothing?  Does it sound too good to be true?  If you REALLY think that they would give you something for nothing, then call me up;  I’ve got some radioactive swamp land in Timbuktu that I need to unload too!  (See my recent post Cheap can be Very Expensive.)

Now don’t get me wrong, there is nothing inherently dishonest or deceiving in the offer of a Free Alarm System provided that the client understands the terms of the agreement that they are about to contract for.  Keep in mind that it is a LAW OF BUSINESS that EVERY COMPANY MUST MAINTAIN PROFITABILITY if it expects to 1) survive, and 2) continue the ability to serve it’s customers.

As a customer, you are deferring your costs; putting it off until later.  It is essentially like financing, except that it’s a loan you will never pay off.  Even we at Aloha Alarm offer a variation of the free installation package; it is an option that consumers are demanding.  The difference is that we take special effort to make sure that you understand the deal.  If your situation requires a $0 down system, then go for it!

Call Aloha Alarm at 808-488-4111 and we will be happy to help you sort through the maze of gimmicks and marketing so that you can become a wise consumer and end up receiving what you are expecting to get.
