Quite simply they try to grab you with the FREE or cheap stuff.
A no purchase necessary V SWEEPSTAKES 2,100,000.00 entry, odds are 1 in 26,000.
Then you get to talk to sly lying sales people who say you get 4 free magazines. You tell them thats all you want. Then next you know your getting 10, for the low price of one time $89.00 U.S. Dollars, the magazines are free just pay the shipping, & this is for 4 years, the magazines come for 4 years, for 10 magazines.Then you find out only some of the magazines come for 4 years, most only 2 years. & then you get the actual bill.
They tried to charge me 4 payments of $69.99 = $279.96 what part of 1 time 89$ was misinterpreted here? So they tried to rip me off, They lied.
I called & bitched & told them if that was the way it is I don't want the magazines. They got the price down to under $200.00 but still! When they said $89.00 for 10 for 4 yrs I couldn't refuse them.
Needless to say I was really pissed when I saw the overcharged bill.
When I called to dispute the charges, they lowered the bill,they tried to save face & make it up to me & they said they had a 50$ dining coupon for us & some other gifts.
Well the coupon expired 6 years ago in 2001 i found after receiving it!
Go figure, worthless
They promised beautiful watches, I got them, made in china & the hands are loose & they don't keep time! Could I expect any thing else?
An electronic organizer, made in china, just like the watches it doesn't work.
What they did was dump garbage on me, dome gifts.
It is quite a savings if you add up all the subscriptions you would pay separately.They also allow you to swap out magazines for another if you don't like them. I've swapped like 7 Mags for others. I guess anyone with a waiting room loves these guys.
1 Magazine I really wanted that was on the list I couldn't get.
I think they should at least do business more honestly & not tell you, or promise what can't be delivered! Explain to people they are buying in bulk & what the actual price is, instead of fast talking con artists promising more for less & lying about the price or quoting you a price for some thing else.
At moment I am satisfied as I read a lot & wanted the Mags & got at a discount, Id still like my gifts that work though, It would really be nice to get what they promised me in the 1st place.
