Meaningful Beauty’s unauthorized secret

Meaningful Beauty this infomercial make claims of the product costing just $39.95 plus shipping and handling. What they don’t want you to know about is after you receive your item, that is just the first of many monthly shipments that will be charged to your card on file without your authorization.

Meaningful Beauty‘s secret is your next shipment will cost you $100.00 or more. Once you realize your account has been over drawn, and your flat broke because of these unknown and unauthorized charges by Meaningful Beauty, and can try to cancel the subscription you didn’t know you signed up for, guess what, your next package is already on it’s way and Meaningful Beauty has charged your card again.

Never give these guys your credit card information based on trusting a celebrity (Cindy Crawford), who can afford these outrageous monthly payments for just some face cream.

Stretch Genie, don’t wish for it.

There really aren’t a lot of reviews out there about Stretch Genie yet. But like the other buy one get one free scams on TV, you’ll be sorry you ever wasted your money on this product.

Some reviews about Stretch Genie are good, but others mention excessive shipping rates, tricky selling practices, and Stretch Genie causing holes and overstretching of their shoes. There are lots of free ways to stretch your shoes, some people mentioned newspaper, zip lock bags of water and other great ideas. If you insist on trying the stretch genie do yourself a favor and buy it at Walmart, or you’ll be wishing you didn’t buy it at all.

Colony Brands the Choose and Charge Scam

http://www.colonybrands.com/

If you have ever shopped through one of these Choose and Charge Catalog companies associated with Swiss Colony, now known as Colony Brands, and have a Choose and Charge account, consumer beware. There is no longer just a small finance charge for your purchases, they are now charging outrageous interest rates and the information is not provided in their monthly billing statement, they have also started charging $19 late fee‘s just like real credit cards. They provide no information on previous purchases or fee’s charged to your account on their statements, unless you the consumer request it. All in violation of the Consumer Protection Act

Long time customer accounts have gone over their normal minimum payment, even when they made purchases based on the sample information provided above, their minimum payment was still bound to increase even though they spent less then the “Stays the same” amount, so don’t buy it. They just want to suck you into making that purchase with their misinformation about your account leading you to believe your minimum payment will stay the same even if you make that purchase, but with all their new fee’s and unknown interest rates that’s not possible, shame on this company.

Even long time customers that have threatened not to shop with them anymore have received nothing but negative responses from their awful customer service representatives. Glad to know they care about the customers they are scamming!

Beware of these sites they are all related to Colony Brands:

Sam’s Club Plus Scam

 

SamsClub is scamming long time members out of more higher Membership fees by way of the Plus Membership. The cashier tries to up sell the higher price Plus Membership at the checkout, when the members regular Membership is about to expire for $12 dollars, then when the member goes to renew the total is $100, and they leave no option to remove this Plus Membership from your account without going to customer service.

Why is this Membership being forced on members at renewal time, we should have the option to choose what kind of Membership we interested in, and SamsClub should be ashamed.

It’s bad enough we really don’t get a full year out of our $40 memberships, now their forcing higher priced Memberships on us at checkout and renewal time. There are no fans of this SamsClub scam. If were not getting benefits with a $40 Membership, what are we getting, and why are we wasting are money. Do the math, and then do yourself a favor and shop at your local Walmart Super Center, no fees or up sell just savings.

Don’t be blinded by EZ Eyes!

EZ Eyes Keyboard is no miracle keyboard it’s just another TV scam! Their website makes it seem like you get a keyboard and a mouse for $14.95 plus $7.95 for shipping and handling; plus get a second set for just processing and handling, but before you even get a total your order goes through for $101.60.

There is no way to email the company, and when you try to contact customer service by phone to cancel the order your told that the data has yet to be “down loaded” and to call back tomorrow. They boast that this keyboard is as nice as others that cost $60 or more, when in reality the EZ Eyes Keyboard will cost you over a $100.00.

They have this same keyboard at Walmart for $9.98,without all the hidden costs. Don’t be blinded by EZ’s double offer scam your better off struggling to see.

Trendy Top? Not!

The only thing trendy about the Trendy Top is the buy one get one free scam only doubled! If you order from their website or automated phone system they try to up sell you other offers, and you won’t get a purchase total until the credit card information has been entered. Once you notice the outrageous shipping and other unauthorized charges, it’s impossible to contact customer service to cancel the order.

These rags could wind up costing you over $100.00, I suggest you don’t even think about covering up your crack with this crap!

SodaStream was just a dream.

Here’s another good ideal but not as efficient as consumers are lead to believe.

Sodastream | 1.800.763.2258 or info@sodastreamsupport.com

These machines are very expensive, and you must use the SodaStream Carrier to pick up and deliver your c02 tanks, which they claim you get 60 uses per tank, but some reviews say not quite. In order to purchase the bottles and soda mixes you must shop online and endure shipping cost because these items are either limited or not available in most stores.

At first consumers found it interesting to actually check out the concept of making their own soda without returns or recyclables, but some reviews say the drinks taste funny and are time consuming to make. There have also been comments about how after a few drinks from the expensive SodaStream you find yourself running out to buy a 2-liter of Diet Coke anyway.
