I purchased what i thought was a 1 month subscription to Arizona Republic from a very friendly salesman in my local Frys. I was skeptical as I usually get my news online, but he said try it, cancel if you don't like it.
He filled out a form for me, told me where to initial and we went our separate ways. First thing i noticed was that it was 5 bucks more charged to my card than he said. Okay, whatever, can't undo that. A few weeks later, I call to cancel after finding I was just throwing them away.
I was then informed by a smug rep that I could not cancel, that i had signed up for 3 months, and they would continue to bill my card. I told him this is not what i was told, the salesman said 1 month, not 3. He told me to look at the receipt, look at my signature, and accept that i was going to get the paper for 2 more months!
So I have cancelled my debit card for the unauthorized charges, and expect I will get bills and rude calls. I will never buy this paper again, I will never recommend it, and I will be complaining to the Frys management about allowing such deceitful practices in their store.
