Many companies offer 30 day trials for consumers to test out a product or service without making a commitment. What consumers don’t realize is that the fine print terms and conditions may be signing them up for more than a free trial.

  • Read The Fine Print
    • Companies sneak in long-term agreements and subscriptions into the fine print.
    • If you plan to cancel, make sure you understand the cancellation policy.
    • There may also be checked boxes that will sign you up for more than a free trial.
  • Research The Company
    • If a company makes a customer unhappy, the first thing they’ll do is warn others.
    • Checkout their online rating and see what others have to say about their products or trials.
    • You can also find out if the company is legitimate by doing an online search.
  • Keep Track Of Dates
    • If you want to cancel the trial, you’ll need to know when you’re going to be charged.
    • Your trial may start at the time or purchase or at the time of delivery, pay attention to these details.
    • If you’re wrongly charged; track what dates you were charged, and any time you talked to the company about reimbursement.
  • Watch Your Accounts
    • It’s always important to keep track of your accounts to watch for fraudulent charges.
    • If you paid for shipping & handling, the company has your credit card information to charge you.
    • Anytime you find fraud on your accounts, contact your financial institution to block future charges and contact the company charging you to get a refund.
