I did Access Media yesterday, got credit today, everything's good, right? Well, not quite. I was browsing another forum and I found out that their "free" trial is anything but. They charge you for the first month, even thought it says "One month free - cancel anytime!"

Huh? I don't see that offer...


22-12-2004 23:54:30

They took it down after one day. I wonder why. roll


23-12-2004 06:07:38

The terms and conditions clearly state that they will charge you for one month atleast. I guess you did not really read the fine print..I almost jumped on that offer thinking it was like real rhapsody but soon realised that...only movies are free for a month not the membership!

Unbeknownst to him was the power of the fine print....

....fine print, a worthy adversary

never under estimate the power of fine print......

Nah, I read that part that said "By clicking submit...," but I assumed it was for the trial membership. Oh well. From doing people's referrals, I've made a good bit of cash, so they took a chunk of that - no big deal! I'll get the PayPal payment, and net $300 - not a bad deal, eh?

Speaking of which, the AccessMedia offer is back, lol

Better start bending over slowly again.

Damnit. Too late for me too.

WTF why does Centric even allow this offer to be up when they purposely try to trick you into $30 for nothing?

Now I'm trying to call there toll free number and it's 3 PM EST and the recording says there available only from 6 to 6 PM PST. WTF That means your open assholes.

I've emailed 3 different email addresses I picked up from the AccessMedia site requesting cancellation and I have had NO RESPONSE.

Really sucks ass.

how much were u charged?


08-01-2005 08:57:29

$29.95 is what it says. I would do something else


09-01-2005 18:17:40

It was $29.95, which stinks, but in the grand scheme of things, isn't that bad. Considering I've bagged over $3,000 in PayPal and prizes, $29.95 is not a big deal.

Blurrz, how'd you get so much free stuff? Moderator, PLEASE STICKY THIS THREAD. I just got ripped off too, but I'm disputing the transaction with my credit card company and they say there's a 75% chance I'll get my money back. Sticky it so people don't make the same mistake. Thanks!


15-01-2005 22:53:12

JUST EFFIN READ, it says you need to pay for the first month....


15-01-2005 23:04:15

I know, but they make a false claim on the first page, so I'm trying to get the credit card company to debate it. And I think they will. This was the one site I forgot to read the Terms and Conditions on. It was 300 in the morning, and I was referral swapping, so I didn't really care.


15-01-2005 23:28:58

Well, thats your fault, not Access Media's. It clearly states you will be paying for the first says FREE DVD's....not FREE SERVICE.


15-01-2005 23:40:40

Alright alright. I'm trying to rationalize with you but whatever. You're right, it's my fault. But I still feel like I was cheated and I will get my money back.


16-01-2005 18:11:13

Let me know what happens with your dispute. I have profited enough that $29.95 doesn't really bother me, but it would be nice to get back at them in principle.


16-01-2005 22:18:56

Well it's really bothering me. Thanks for the interest. I'll keep you posted. PLEASE GET THIS THREAD STICKIED!
