In Dec of 2008 I purchased a plane ticket at the ORBITZ site. I bit for a $10 refund and was routed to the GreatFun site and, to my regret and stupidity signed up for a FREE membership in anticipation of getting the $10 refund. I later learned the refund is a $10 check that, if cashed, registered me as a GreatFun mark or I mean "member". By early Mar. 09 I had received two $10 "refund" checks. I did not cash either of the checks sent to me but tore them up. On Mar 4 I found a charge on the same credit card I used for the ORBITZ plane ticket, for an $11.99 membership to GreatFun. I immediately filed an inquiry with my credit card and the charges were dropped for the current billing cycle. I still need to contact this "Greatfun" company and punch their ticket. All is not resolved and I will never use ORBITZ again. Nor any of the companies affiliated with Great Fun i.e. AutoVantage Affinion Publishing, LLC, Access Development or Trilegiant Corp. (all reg. trademarks )

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

those are all associated with those worthless membership programs that are impossible to cancel once you agree to the free trial.

I saved myself far more than $20 - just in hassle and aggravation trying to cancel.

You have the number on your statement, call it. I gather from what you wrote you knew what you were doing at a point, stopped reading, then signed up... I saw the same offer, you can abort, you didn't. I understand being mad b/c of a billing I got charged from a company I did not recognize... they didn't have a number to call, that required research. You have it on your statement, got their materials, got their gift and threw it away. People think they are taking advantage of b/c they didn't read...
Best of luck to you
