When ordering online, there was no final invoice telling what the total of the order was or what the shipping and handling charges would be. It was only when I saw the amount charged to my account that I freaked out - but in their defense, I went back to the site and found waaaay down in the fine print what the S/H charges were...again, BUYER BEWARE, but like others, I also just "bit it" and accepted it as a lesson learned, all the while hoping my hangars will be wonderfully worth all of this.
Then today I received a "membership" card from Savings2Go...no details on the program or benefits and no information on a charge involved. Normally I would have tossed this as it appears to be junk mail, but then I noticed my email account on it and got curious. So upon checking my email, I discovered a "welcome" email with links to my "account".
Rather than click the link for the "$10 reward" (I already knew something was fishy, so why go deeper?), I selected "Membership Details". Lo and behold I was sent to a "Welcome Letter" that served as "authorization" of my acceptance of the $14.95 fees to be auto-deducted from my bank account. I promptly called the number on the letter (same as on "membership" card 1-800-448-1944) and spoke with a rep to try and determine what this was, why I was involved, and why I was being charged.
According to is records, I'd voluntarily enrolled while purchasing a "tv" product. It didn't ring a bell as I don't purchase "tv" products - but then recalled those amazing little hangars I'd ordered...When I explained I'd not authorized it and wanted to cancel, he first started going thru the sales pitch of the wonderful benefits - and while the benefits look appealing, they are not worth $15 a month to me at this state of the economy. He politely agreed to cancel the membership and apologized for any issue regarding the enrollment as they "don't want to charge for something they wasn't authorized".
I'm still waiting to see if the second company listed on previous posts does the same, but at least now I'll be ready for it and know what to look for.
Mama always said to pay attention to the fine print and "little details"...if I'd listened I probably wouldn't still be waiting on my $100 plastic hangars...or the next rip-off artist that will attach fees to my account because I just couldn't live without additional closet space.
