I subscribe to The Family Handyman. It’s a nice lightweight magazine that I enjoy reading.
Today I received a ‘letter’ (more like a bill) in the mail letting me know that my FREE 30 day preview of the brand new volume of The Family Handyman Make It Last was being sent to me.
I can then…
[li]Write ‘Cancel’ on the letter they sent me (Postage NOT paid on their return envelope!)[/li][li]Review it but decide to cancel within the 30 day period I can send it back (on my dime, I presume) [/li][li]Keep it and conveniently pay 4 payments of $4.99. plus 1 payment of $5.99 shipping and handling! By the way, I just looked this up online and it’s $10.99. I can’t image the latest edition has $15 worth of improvements in it. :dubious:[/li][/ol]
I’m not going to pay to cancel something that is sent to me! Even if it’s as easy as writing ‘Cancel’ and paying the postage back them.
Not sure why this has hit a hot spot with me; but this really irked me! I’m just now starting to calmdown. :mad:
I went to their website and found a ‘chat’ link to ask questions. I stated that anything I receive in the mail from them I was going to assume it was a give and keep it; and there’s no way I’m going out of pocket for even one penny to cancel something I didn’t even order.
So; what’s a minor aggravation that’s happened to you recently that really got you under the collar?
