I received a check today for $8.25 from Snuggie. At first glance you might think it was a rebate check as I had recently purchased Snuggie products for Christmas. When the small print is read on the back of the check it states " by cashing this check you are signing up for "Great Fun". Great fun is a discount marketing scam which promises discounts on merchandise and services but as we all know will deliver none, all for $149.99 annual membership fee, which renews automatically annualy. Also if I cash the check I am authorizing Snuggie to transfer my credit card information to Great Fun.

To put a stop to this scam I am doing the following and I would advise you to do the same if you have done business with snuggie. Keep the check for documentation purposes, DO NOT CASH THE CHECK.

1. Notify your credit card company immediately in writing that you have not authorized nor will you pay any charges from Snuggie/Great Fun/Trilegiant corp/Affinion publishing as they have stolen your credit card account and number thru Snuggie's complicity. If you feel uncomfortable with Great fun and Snuggie having your credit card info for sale, cancel your credit card.

2. Alert your state consumer fraud, in my case the Attorney General of NY of this scam for possible legal action.

3. Tell your friends and relatives of Snuggies part in this scam and convince them not to buy Snuggies and spread the word of this scam. Faced with consumer discust Snuggie may change their ways or go out of business.

Whats the big deal???

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

I am not sure what the issue is here. How is this a scam? I received the same check in the mail and view it as any other solicitation I receive. If you read the check...it clearly states how this works. The only people that are duped by offers like this are those who do not take the time to read.

If you get the check and you do not want to enroll, all you have to do is shred the check. This is exactly what I do with anything that my credit card company sends me. Once you do that...the issue is resolved.

The other steps you listed are just a waste of your time.

1. Calling your credit card is pointless....nothing has been charged or will be charged if you don't join.

2. What are you going to tell the attorney general? That someone mailed you an offer in the mail?

3. Force the Snuggie company out of business. In today's economy that sounds like a great idea...we need a few more unemployed people.

My suggestion is to shred the check and do nothing. That takes all of 12 seconds.
