Complaint Review: American Greetings
American Greetings Does not allow web cancellation of "free trial" accounts which require users to enter credit card information Cleveland, Internet
My membership wasn't cancelled as should have been following a phone call to American Greetings. On the phone, there were also limited business hours and extended hold times. When I made an email communication regarding why the membership wasn't cancelled, American Greetings sent this back:
"Thank you for contacting AmericanGreetings.com Customer Support.
Members are required to cancel trial memberships during the trial period. Since we did not receive any communications from you before the trial period was over, your account was billed only [$19.99] on 01/13/2012 for a full year of continued membership. Consequently, your membership is no longer refundable per the Terms of Sale you were given when you signed up."
If one considers what must be thousands of people who try, but can't cancel trial subscriptions--this simply seems dishonest and designed to not really make it free trial.
