I’ve debated about posting about the “FREE” Savings Club offer from Coupons.com. I hesitated because I don’t feel like we should have to pay for coupons or for exclusive coupons. This seems against what I’m trying to do here. It’s bad enough that you have to pay to print these coupons but to pay to even have access, well that just seems wrong. I don’t know what the future of printable coupons holds but I was concerned about being part of the reason that people would pay for coupons.
Plus, there was the whole issue that you would have to enter in a actual credit card. Then you would have to cancel your free subscription before the year was up. By then would we remember to do that? Now, I’m hearing stories that people are actually being CHARGED for this free offer when they were suppose to have an entire year completely free. So obviously, I’m glad I didn’t post about this offer this time around. However, I’m guessing some of you may have signed up for the Savings Club from reading other sites or on Facebook.
Here’s what you need to do. Check your credit card and bank statements folks. If you have been charged, you will have to contact Coupons.com by signing into your account and letting them know. This is ridiculous, in my opinion. If they know it is an issue, they should be automatically searching for these errors and contacting people BEFORE they contact Coupons.com. Please let me know in the comments if this issue has affected you.
My initial feelings about this offer have some what been confirmed.
Let me know what you think about the Coupon Club. I did the free offer back in February and I forget to log in to check the exclusive offers. I haven’t been personally impressed with the offers that are exclusive. I also wonder what companies are wanting to only offer coupons to a select group. Why would companies want people to have to pay to access their coupons. It’s all becoming so crazy.
What are your thoughts? Would you pay for coupons?
