Hello I don't know if i'm allowed to post this but i'm going to anyway so that i can try my best to help others out of the situation i am in right now. So recently i signed up for Stamps.com because i saw info about their free trial on a television commercial. I figured i would sign up since i planned on doing RAKs on here as i saw others doing. I signed up and little did i know what a nightmare it turned out to be. First of all the free scale is not in fact "free" there are shipping charges which i did not know about. Also i ordered some boxes expecting them in two days like they were promised its been nearly a week and still nothing. Yesterday i decided i was going to try to cancel my so called, "free trial". I looked EVERYWHERE on the website for a way to cancel then finally i decided to try to contact them through email. I sent and email and promptly got an email back saying i had to cancel my account over the phone. They then gave me the number. I called and got put on hold for a little over an hour! finally i got put on the phone with someone who tried multiple times to extend my offer and offer me more free things i finally got angry and told them to just cancel the account. today my trial was "supposed" to end. So he canceled it sent an email saying he canceled. Today i decided to check my bank account to see if there are any charges from them on there and low and behold i got charged for the month today when i supposedly canceled yesterday and of course i can't call them back until monday... So i just wanted to share what happened so i could forewarn people not to sign up because in fact it does not do everything it says it does. ~be safe mouse waiters. That is all.

I read the whoooooole thing and this is good information. Be cautious of all "free deals". Nothing is free. Stick with reputable companies like Disney and remember, you really do get what you pay for. Thank you for the warnings. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 7:17PM

The whole time I was reading this I could not wait for it to end. I kept asking myself "AreWeThereYet" - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 6:36PM
lol that was a good one, but in all seriousness do not use this site. - AreWeThereYet  12.9 #9423 6:37PM
By they way, Yelp is where this should be posted - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 6:38PM
ok thanks for letting me know. i wasn't sure if this was an acceptable post. i just thought it was relevant because people send raks all the time and this sight may look appealing and so i just wanted to forewarn everyone - AreWeThereYet  12.9 #9423 6:39PM
LMBO πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ scooter mike!! - CourtyAstroBlisters  784.0 #236 6:41PM
also i forgot to ask this a while ago... what do the boxes mean? - AreWeThereYet  12.9 #9423 6:42PM
You should contact the better business bureau as well. - aidensmama  340.3 #704 6:45PM
Boxes are emoticons. They aren't compatible with your device. - aidensmama  340.3 #704 6:46PM
BBB is a joke. Yelp is way more effective. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 6:58PM
yes, BBB is a TOTAL joke. Yelp is on it's way of joining it - misschurro  6362.0 #17 9:20PM
Yelp is very mafia like in their business practices, but more people check it than BBB. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 9:26PM
Your post is fine, but as it is not Disney related it should have been posted in the hub. It is there now. And the boxes you ask about are emojis that not everyone can see. You have to have an iPhone or have the software installed on your phone. Hope that helps. - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 6:46PM
Hi Duchess_SMK~ Thank you for letting me know right now i am on my desktop so that may be why. - AreWeThereYet  12.9 #9423 6:48PM
No problem, yes, the web version never shows emojis. :) - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 6:50PM
Thanks again - AreWeThereYet  12.9 #9423 6:57PM
To much to read, I'll wait for the movie to come out. : D - scoot  287.1 #993 7:13PM
