Advanced Grocery Savers Advanced Grocery Savings Radio, Grocery Savings Rip Off Internet, Internet
Just like many others in this failed economy, I was desperate what I heard on the radio that I could get $1000.00 for free in groceries for the next 12 months. I called the number provided and this is what I was told.
For $19.95 (one time fee) I could get a card, like a debit card, worth $1000.00 that I could use all at once or periodically over 12 months to buy groceries and household items (not including alcohol or tobacco products) with no fees, gimmicks, cancellations required, etc.
I was told the card would come in the mail, I would need the internet only once to activate the card, then go shopping! I don't have to send in any receipts, I don't have to cancel anything, etc. I was told I could OPTIONALLY print certificates for extra savings. I wasn't told I was required to do so.
I was also told I could get a mail-in rebate for up to $15.00 off my $19.95 shipping/handling so in my head I'm getting $1000.00 + almost my whole $19.95 back. Too good to be true? I even asked the representative that on the phone. He tells me their ad wouldn't be on the radio if it were and that I could check them out w/ the BBB. I tried, BBB has no record of them.
I was also told I would get 3 gift cards, 1 for $25 to Target, 1 for $25 to Walmart and 1 for $25 for dining, AT NO CHARGE, all I had to do was cancel them in 30 days from when I receive them in the mail.
Apparently, now that I'm home and my boyfriend has me checking them out online, there are hundreds of other complaints out there. Apparently you get a card that allows you access to their website where, for a fee, you can print COUPONS that you take with you when you shop and you can use at check out.
I called today to apply for this $1000.00 and I called less than 12 hours later to cancel. Be advised, they're a bunch of liars and misrepresent, no matter how many times you ask them to clarify, what they're really selling.
