Earlier this year my boyfriend and I found a healthy new energy drink called FRS Healthy Energy. It was a healthy drink, so that was cool, but best of all, they offered a free trial.
That was all well and good. I mean I got the free trial and it the stuff tasted good and it even gave me energy. I didn’t build up my muscles or lose 20 pounds of fat, but it was pretty good. But I had one minor complaint…
When you sign-up for the FRS free trial, you also get enrolled in what’s called an “autoship” which means they automatically ship out FRS products to you each month.
Sure, it’s good stuff, but it’s pretty expensive.
But I guess that’s how it goes with all of those “free” trials. They’re free if you call and cancel before the trial period ends. But the real complaint with FRS is that if you call to cancel, they’ll try to talk you out of it.
I guess it’s not as bad as trying to cancel phone service or something like that where the service is beyond terrible (don’t get me started on phone company complaints…) but I kind of wish there was no catch.
Wouldn’t that be nice?
P.S. I’m not complaining about FRS, because if you look at the terms it clearly states everything you need to know about getting the free trial and what you are signing up for and even the phone number to cancel. It’s right there. I’m just saying, some people won’t notice it, so this is more of a warning than a complaint.
