Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

As a business owner you would that I would know better, but I guess not. I thought this was a good opportunity to advance my company with an infusion of operating capital as well as help my daughter go to law school, but it just goes to show that if it looks to good to be true it probably is! I went on line to research some of the grants offered and came across The Grant University. They were offering a free grant cd, the only thing the consumer had to take care of was the shipping ($1.98). I later found out that they had charged my credit card for $69.98, that's not right! With the economy like it is right not the last thing people want to feel is ripped off.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

How to get the most refund you can for the least amount of your time with this company

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

I had the same experience - but I ran across their refund policy. I had called to cancel and threw a hissy fit in September and they refused to refund me. But then I called today (11/17) and immediately cited their return policy and without hesitation they refunded me at a rate of $2.33 a day not used. That means I caught the charge made on 9/20 on 9/25, therefore they are refunding me $58.30. I can live with the lost $11.65. Here is the wording of the return policy:

"To cancel your subscription to The Grant University for any reason please contact us at 1-877-207-1615 or e-mail us at And keep the Quick Start CD-ROM as our free gift to you. The Grant University's entire liability, and your exclusive remedy, shall be a prorated refund of the monthly subscription price paid. Shipping and handling charges are non-refundable."

You can find the full refund policy here:

Also beware they sign you up for IWB Club and 2 months later charge you $29.95. Call and cancel now or get a new card. I cancelled my card and got a new one as I feared other charges.

"As a bonus for enrolling into The Grant University, you will be provided unlimited access for 21 days to the Ideal Wealth Builder Club, ( During your 21 day free trial you will receive a free one-hour personal financial consultation at no cost to you. To setup your free one-hour consultation please call (800) 230-4043, ext. 1. Additionally, you will have full access to their proprietary wealth building software during your trial. After your twenty-one day trial, you will be billed twenty-nine dollars and ninety-five cents for continued access to the Ideal Wealth Builder Club. If you have any questions pertaining to the Ideal Wealth Builder Club or if for any reason you would like to discontinue your service, contact them directly by calling (800) 230-4043 ext 1."
