Sold via infomercial, Brainetics is very popular among homeschooling families. The educational program package includes DVDs, educational playing cards, and a workbook that guarantees that users may do better in math, spelling and other subjects using this memory based system. It sells for $99 plus shipping.
Currently there are no complaints with the Better Business Bureau or the Consumer Product Safety Division. The product can be returned for a full refund within 30 days of purchase.
The Brainetics scam seems to be based on bloggers questioning if a child's grades will go from a "C" to an "A" using this product for just 20 minutes a day. Other blogs have complained about the annoying commercial full of screaming teen girls, but that is fairly common with infomercials. However, there seems to be universally positive feedback about the Brainetics product, including the fact that parents found that children enjoyed math more once they used the educational product. The trending Brainectics scam topic just might be more rumor than truth.
