Back when Mandy and I decided to buy a house, I signed up for FreeCreditReport.com to get a copy of my credit report. They force you to sign up with a credit card for their one-month trial and then start billing you after the month is up. I no longer need their services, so I called up today to cancel.
Wow, talk about an upsell. First I had the wonderful benefits of the site re-explained to me twice, then offered the service at half price for six months, then offered a free month (after which they’d start billing me again), then told to pull up my credit report because I had not in a while. With each offer, I simply responded “No thanks, I’d just like to cancel my account.” I got to say that seven times.
Fifteen minutes later, account is canceled.
So just be warned. Like so many subscription services these days, it’s easy to get in, but painful to get back out.
