ComfyBrace: Good Wrist Brace, Bad Marketing Tactics

Sending me a letter requesting I review the product on Amazon was a bad marketing move.

The beginning of the year, I started having wrist pain. I looked on Amazon, and saw the ComfyBrace was highly rated. Looking the product over, it looked like it could resolve my issues. I bought it and the brace arrived quickly. Within a week, my pain subsided. I still wear the brace, without the metal piece, at night. It’s not comfortable, for me, wearing it while typing.

Cut the Crap

Several weeks after receiving the brace, I received this letter in the mail.

At the time of this writing, this is what ComfyBrace’s reviews looks like:

Amazon’s reviews should be a tool to aid customers in making a purchasing decision. They should be free from influence of the company. How many of the reviews were made out of empathy from the above sob story? Her personal issues have nothing to do with a customer sharing their experience on how the brace worked for them. Customers have complained about receiving the letter since 2019. Why is Amazon letting this happen?

You wanted a review? You got it.
