International Masters Publishers, Inc. - Easy To Bake, Easy To Make Recipe Cards advertised at $69.95 goes to the hundreds Montoursville Pennsylvania

*Consumer Comment: You missread the ad.


I collect recipes. I love to cook. I received this advertisement in the mail "receipe collection" is $69.95.

I started paying for my "recipe cards" in October 2008. I received two "shipments" today, which cost $42.60 for both. I looked back at the original advertisement and saw what they stated was the "value" of the package, which is $69.95. With these last two payments, the total to them would have been $105.12. And my little "box" isn't even half filled. I pulled back these last two invoices and won't mail them yet. I haven't contacted the company - yet.

The first "package" boasted of 36 receipe cards, a "sturdy box", a quick-guide and a 7-piece German-Style Knife Set & Cutting Board. Well, I didn't receive the knives or the carving board. However, being the way I am, I just thought, "I have plenty a cutlery and cutting boards - it's no big deal". That should have been my first clue.

I don't know yet what they're going to say or do. I'm going to request that they send the remainder of the receipe cards without any further payment by me. I will let you know what their response is! What do you think the odds are?

Beware, start adding up your payments before it's too late!!

 This is a club you joined.

 The $69.95 is what the starter free kit is valued at.

 You will recive 12 new cards about every 6 weeks & you will be billed ($7.90) with the new shipments.The knife set will properly be shiped from their supplyer.

 I am a member of two of their clubs,"Home Repair" & "Scrapbooking"

 I recive new pages every 6 weeks along with a bill for both.

 If you create a (free) acount on their website (www.IMPonline.com) you can stop (& restart) the shipments when ever you want.

 You can also call them & have shipments stoped (1-800-570-8671) but they will bill you for any shipments you have recived.
