Hey GF community! This is my very first post because I’ve only had my GF for one day! Problem is, I’m already feeling some regerts (spelling mistake intended). I feel like I made a rash decision and bought a GF Pro and the Compact Filter without doing enough research. After paying full price for everything, I realized that they offer $500 referral bonus. So missed out on that, which hurts a bit. Then I realized that a new GF Air Filter is being released in a few months and I just bought the Compact Filter. So I feel like I paid $1000 for a machine that will be outdated in just a few months. I’m afraid that they will eventually discontinue the CF filters or make the new machine better/more affordable and that stings a bit too. When I reach out to Customer Service about info on the new filter and how it will compare to the one I now own, they are not able to share any information! They say they don’t know the price of the new machine or the price of the replacement filters or how it will compare to the CF, they know nothing. What? How is that possible? What they do know is that if I want to return the totally unopened CF and wait for the GF Air Filter, then I have to pay the shipping (which I’m fine with) and a 30% restocking fee (which hurts). Since I’m all out of money, that just won’t work for me. I guess I’m reaching out to all of you because I want to be excited about this huge purchase again but all I feel is bamboozled at the moment. Anyone else feeling similar? Any advice? Any puppy pics?
On another note, I still think the laser is awesome and the community you guys have built is pretty great, so I wanted to pat you all on the back and let you know that I appreciate all the info you take the time to share. If you’ve read this far into my woes me story, can you share some tips or point to some articles in the community you think is perfect for beginners? I’m trying to read as much of these forum topics as possible, but there are a ton! What do you wish you knew when you were just starting out??? THANK YOU SO MUCH!
