Free Trials

If you are a woman, you may have noticed ads on line for miracle skin care creams that reverse those lines and make you look like a teen again. Various celebrities – Kate Middleton, Betty White, Joanna Gaines, Sean Hannity’s wife … are supposedly the geniuses behind these products. Photos accompany each website showing before and after miracles. If you are paying attention, you will see that the photos are the same on each site. Wait a minute … I thought this woman got young again by using Kate Middleton’s product. This site is saying it’s Betty White’s cream that has done this miracle.

Don’t blame the celebrities. They don’t know they are being used. This is a scam. You are offered a free trial, you must pay only postage, so of course they need your credit card for that, and once you are in their system, you are stuck for a monthly delivery at $89.95 a jar, or whatever. If you call them, they say you agreed to this and you should have read the fine print. If you want to get out of it, you must call your credit card company and file a claim. I have been stung once or twice and what I do is file the claim, and also cancel the card and get a new one.

So I have learned that lately no free trial is genuine. It isn’t worth the hassle. If you want to know about the product, look for reviews, see if Amazon sells it – they always have reviews.

I'll say it again: Beware of free trials.

I haven't seen those ads, but this is a good reminder to check reviews even if there's no free trial. I could've saved myself some poor purchases if I always checked.

Those pesky scam artists. I always look on Amazon. Sending a hug.
