What is $29.99 worth to you?

I am mad, upset, angry beyond words. BUYER BEWARE should be stamped on many websites. I bought a membership to an online source that ended up not being what I thought it was.
In the small print, and trust me there was a ton of it. It says we will charge you every month the first of the month $4.99 for your membership and you cannot cancel it until after six months.
WHAT seriously? are you kidding me? seriously? ( I totally missed that part when I placed my order ( reminder to self buy glasses and read the thing
So, I buy the membership on the 26th of the month and get charged again today for a website I didn't even SAVE!!!!!!
I sent three emails telling them to cancel my membership let's see now what happens.... they can charge me right away on my card but now on their website it says oh it may take 30 days to cancel and only after six months...yay okay right.
So, dear website if you have googled my name and found this site yes, it is you I am talking about and yes I am still very very angry that any website let alone a website for crafters would do this.... So what have I learned from this lesson?
I WILL NEVER EVER make an online purchase unless it is from on of the stores on my sidebar.
I am just hoping this website makes it right. I guess unless you know what you are doing you need to make sure you read the fine print.... lesson learned and it only cost me $29.99
So, for the hundreds of you that read this a day...... I just saved you $29.99
READ THE FINE PRINT..... and now there is always FINE PRINT

Thats not right. Call your card company and see if you can dispute the charges.

Ditto. Call the card company and have them cancel the payment.

I had something like this happen last year , I followed it up with my CC, Co, and with in a few weeks I had won and they didn't charge me what the co. was trying to do.I was also told I couldn't cancel, this is a company that has you sign up to find old class mates and it is very leading. So Contact your CC, Co. and make copies of your e-mails canceling and that will be the key to stopping this Co. dead in their tracks! Good luck and I hope you get your money back..

Yes, there are alot of people with "fine print" ~ cancel it on your credit card~ In the mean time stop by my blog to possibly win 3 Giveaways" as part of One WorldOne Heart ~ all you have to do is make a comment on my blog ( no fine print deals) It is what it is ~ hugs & namaste, Carol

Sites like these need to be named, V ... as a protection for others. Even if you do it privately, in email.

Don't be upset ,,, I know I know anyone hates to be taken advantage of...that is wrong... But do what these others have told you. (I'm in the dark about that stuff,) but others have been taken too, including yours truly. thanks for the visit ..
