I was trying PROJECT PAY DAY which is supposed to be FREE.
It requires sponsor offers.
I took the one that was cheaper... 'BidFuel Auction Success Kit' for less than $2:
02/27/2008 WWW.BIDFUEL.COM $1.97 (my bank of america credit card statement)
When I when to the website of the trial, A LIVE CHAT WINDOW OPENED offering the AT HOME REWARDS MEMBERSHIP, free trial for 7 days STARTING THE DAY I RECIEVE THE MATERIALS and then they would charge almost $15 monthly... I saved the chat, here it comes:
Kelly Says: With At Home Rewards Plus you can get up to 20% savings on gift cards pre-purchased through At Home Rewards Plus for popular stores including Sears, Kmart, Circuit City, Ace Hardware, Sam Goody, Bed Bath & Beyond and more!
Kelly Says: You can also take advantage of savings on home decorating, home entertainment and home improvement.
Kelly Says: After the 7-day free trial (which doesn't start until you receive your materials!), the membership fee is just $14.95 per month.
Kelly Says: For your convenience, At Home Rewards Plus will automatically charge the card you used today the $14.95 membership fee after the trial period and then each month thereafter at the then-current monthly membership fee just as long as you remain a member.
You: CAN I CANCEL AT ANY TIME OR IF I DON'T LIKE IT?

Kelly Says: So , with your approval under the terms I just described, I'll activate your free 7-day trial to At Home Rewards Plus (which doesn't start until you receive the materials) and email you the membership materials with details on how to claim your $25 Wal-Mart Gift Card, OKAY?
Kelly Says: To claim your Free $25 Wal-Mart gift card just click on the gift card icon located on the At Home Rewards Plus website and follow the instructions. Access to the At Home Rewards Plus website will be included in your Welcome email which again will arrive in the next 2-3 days.
TODAY I CHECKED MY BANK OF AMERICA ONLINE STATEMENT AND 'AT HOME REWARDS +' HAD CHARGED ME THE MONTHLY FEE AND == I HAVEN'T RECEIVED NOTHING YET == AND I DIDN'T GET MY $25 WALMART GIFT CARD FOR THE FREE TRIAL EITHER:
Pending AP9 ATHOMEREWARDS $14.95 (my bank of america credit card statement)
As soon as I saw that charge, I called the number to cancel and the option to cancel is automatic... I didn't get a chance to talk to anyone about getting my refund. So I called again, and this time I was able to talk to someone, and she said that the charge was PENDING and that it would take 2-3 business days to be credited back. I WILL UPDATE THIS TO TELL IF IT HAPPEN OR NOT.
I also received an email confirming my CANCELATION:
