Fi-Shock Rocks!

We recently purchased off of Craigslist for $15.00 a Fi-Shock XR-6 Solar Electric Fence Energizer.  It had the bucket missing and the wiring had been modified so we called the company.  They said if we sent it in for $100 we could have it totally refurbished.  So last Monday we sent it off.  They said to expect it to take 2 to 3 weeks to repair.

Today UPS drives up.  Puzzled I go out and there in the UPS man's arms is a box from Fi-Shock.  Excited I carry it in the house and open it up to see what changes were made.  To my surprise it was a totally new unit.  Disbelieving we contact the company and they said that if they received a unit that they felt would cost to much to repair they replace it with a new unit.  AWESOME!

So let's look at the numbers....

Used XR-6      $15.00
Shipping           $17.00  (With box purchase)
Refurbish Fee   $100.00
Total                 $132.00

When we first looked this unit up it showed to be $457.00.  I looked it up today on the Fi-Shock website and it show regular $379 on sale for $343.25.  Either way we made a profit.  What a blessing!
