Yes, this is a scam for certain. If you have not received any of your funds back, you can. I called them along with my CC company and they returned 9 months of payments wihtout hestitation, as if they do this everyday, all d a m n day long! Then if you need more than 9 months refund, you have to submit a letter to top level managment, and possibly more effort. They assume most folks will only put in so much effort, so they stage it this way, hoping you are happy with 9mo's. It was either 6 or 9 mo's. I dont recall exactly, as i had two companies that i found doing this same exact scam. One was Bloomxxxxxx, from using 800 flowers.com (so i blame them as well, as its their business relationship with Bloomxxxxxxx (whatever the full name is bloomberg or similar) and the other was Rewardsxxxxxx, and they were the scam artists associated with Thompson cigars. As i found them at same time, were one was stealing $9.95mo, and the other $12.95. So upsetting thinking that they got away with this, and are still doing this to others, so if you have a class action possibility, i'd be happy to help. Just let me know how I can help. Their arguement is that we clicked on thir AD for 10% savings, and the print (very small print) supposedly says that they will charge your CC monthly to be part of their membership program.

What I found upsetting is how Thompson Cigars or 1-800-Flowers allows them access to our CC info. We enter our CC to pay for the Flowers, then they post an AD after the fact, and yet if you click on the AD listing "Save 10% Now" they go bck to where you entered your CC Info, and use that, when in fact, we all know that we didn't offer or give our CC info, to them, by any intent. Its slippery, and they plan on us clicking on their AD, just to see what it means. And then you see soemthing about a Membership and just Close the Window. I don't recall anything but compltely Red X-ing out of the Pop Up Window figuring it would just close the whole thing, but it already had access to your CC info, as soon as you entered it in. There should be a Law or Protection for Web Users, that unless you Enter your CC Info on the company's website, of those who are charging your card, then it shoudl be illegal. The Law should protect us all from any company charging our card, wihout entering in our CC info on their specific website.

Otherwise this slippery process is almost impossible to avoid. When we called these bastards, not only did they know from the second we called, with my CC co on the line, that they would be giving yet another perosn some of their money back. But they also knew hwo to defend and explain how the scam works. The only thing they didn;t say, or use, was the word Scam, but evgerything they said otherwise bascially explained the scam for what its worth.

When they tried to explain themslves, they sounded pretty rtehersed, and experienced at giving money back, like that was their job. And i wonder if the people answering the phones do anythign but that - answer to give money back. And they just play the odds that most won;t call for months, and with all those funds in the bank, it's a racket.

Think about it. They get access to probbaly 65-75% of all the people who order 800-flowers online, and if 50% of those people don;t scrutinize their CC account, then all that money sits in the bank for however many months, until people notice and ask for funds back. So they play a numbers game, and count on those who don't notice, or those who don't notice for months, and then those who just cancel and don't seek refunds, then lastly those like myself who get 9 months refund, and too lazy to write a letter and fight for the remaining months, as it's not worth my time in the day to fight for $50 even $100, sadly.

Any, glad to see someone post them, so if you need any backup help on this, if you take it further on these scam punks. They don't deserve to be called "artists", theyre scam scum.

And like my username says - What Goes Around, Comes around....Karma Is A Bitch! They willl get there's someday. We should get IRS on them. Actually I am berign Audited from the State, and I will defintley mentioned them, and see if I can;t get them Audited by IRS, Federal Goven't....then I bet they will be shutdown and I hope the owners are sent to Jail for 20yrs, for stealing frm millions.....
