I bought a $59 membership. When I joined I was told I can travel as a courier to Paris and Beijing cheaply. I specifically named those 2 cities, I planned on going there. A rep. said they also guarantee the cheaptest tickets in the industry.

When I try to book a courier flight to Paris they tell me they dont fly there, they also dont do courier flights to Beijing (as promised)and to call Cheaptickets. They offered me a flight to Paris for $590, meanwhile Orbitz.com had one for $500. When I get my credit card bill, they charged me $69 not $59 for membership.

When I asked for a refund they said I had to do it in writing then I received a letter saying I dont qualify for one. Even though they lied about what they offered and the cost of membership. I have made a complaint with Better Business Bureau and filed a complaint with the Attorney General of Colorado. Waiting for a response.

To Gloria- Again, you have the wrong company ..CheapTrips.com IS under investigation here in Colorado

AUTHOR: Amy - (U.S.A.)

To Gloria-
Again, I state that you have the wrong company. Cheap TICKETS is NOT the one you are complaining about. You are complaining about Cheap TRIPS. 2 different companies...Although I would NOT Recommend booking with Cheap Tickets either, but for completely different reasons (most which are stated in the letter dated 1/9/03 from a former employee. CheapTrips.com IS under investigation here in Colorado. Although I respect your opinion and experience, it helps to have the right company before you file any sort of complaint or lawsuit...

#2 Consumer Comment

informatin from Amy is erroneous. - membership campaigns are ongoing!

AUTHOR: Gloria - (U.S.A.)

My response it to Amy whose boyfirend works for Cheap Tickets. The informatin from Amy is erroneous.

Cheap Tickets often runs different membership program and there was a $59.00 offer, my membership offer was for a lifetime membership of a $100.00 with $100 in discounts on air fare on major airlines.

Currently there is a different campaign pricing slashing rates, i.e. 5 years for $79.00.

Prior to making a rebuttal you should be advised that others read comments and K N O W experientially/ first hand, the fraudulant, credit card rip off artistry of cheap trips. com

This Isn't Cheap Tickets.....

AUTHOR: Amy - (U.S.A.)

Hi, I think you need to check the name of your company. I worked for Cheap Tickets for 2 years, and my boyfriend still does. They do not have any offices or affiliation in Golden, nor do they have a membership program that cost $69 a year.....Also, they only sell major airline flights, not courier or charter flights....Just an FYI for you.....
