50 Reviews for FreeShipping
▼ Sort by: recent
I would give this sham of a website 0 stars, but I did speak to someone there who was a nice person and I guess just trying to pay the bills like the rest of us. The confusing, conflicting information combined with an utter lack of information makes these goofballs a joke, and unfortunately one in very poor taste. I would not recommend anyone sign up unless I hated their guts. The time that I wasted trying to procure my "free e-bay gift card ", I can never get back, and at this time of the year, every second counts. I am grateful only that I did not have the vile displeasure of actually trying to use their " free shipping " and only experienced the nausea of a foolish wild goose chase in an attempt to ascertain 25 dollars to spend on e-bay. Look out "Farce Shipping ", because you will anger and frustrate people to the point that I will promise you two things in this life and the next about what will happen to you. Firstly : YOU are not going to like it. Secondly : YOU will never forget it.
it's a total scam!my husband didn't even sign up for it and they have been charging us for over a year. he even called to cancel this subscription only to find out that they wouldn't reimburse him even though they illegally charged his account.
It charged 12.97 on my credit card but I fotgot I registered this website after I placed an order on www.fragrancenet.com. I was offer a rebate and asked to register this website to get the rebate, but the website didn't tell any charge information. Now I still have not received any rebate, and I lost $13 for this scams website.
I found hidden charges on my credit card. I wonder if there were more. I called for a credit and to this date they have not refunded my money.
i never joined ,and ther in my bank account,they are steeling from me.
I don't recall joining. In fact, I'm sure I never would have. I NEVER ship anything, so I'd NEVER give my credit card number for a free 30-day trial nor any other such offer for "free" shipping. The credit card in question is a joint card, so it took 4 months of $12.97 charges to raise an eyebrow. My only possible method of recourse: This review. And I'm not alone.... I quickly found several similar stories online by searching "freeshipping.com scam".
The website for all details on freelance item shipping
Free trial period is a scam - no refunds unless you are a paying subscriber. Don't do it!!!
Signed up for this site, sent in all the required paperwork, waited and waited, still nothing. Called the company and they refused (Crystal a supervisor) quite nastily, that it was my fault and that they would not refund my money, even though they never held up with their end of the bargain. SCAM!!! Don't use this site! Didn't even want my rebate, just my money back for their scam of a website! Don't do it or you can be an unwilling fool!!!!!!!!!!!!
Paid the monthly fee and they cancelled all my cash back as the time they should pay for it. No monthly fee back, not cash back bonus back, no response.
Do not know why they got five stars. Guess they come here and rate themselves too.
I found a charge on my credit card from Freeshipping.com and had no idea what it was for or who they even were. It looked on the internet and found them. I have no idea how I got sighed up with them but I must have because they had my Credit card number. But when or where I signed up I have no idea. There definitely is something shady about it so beware. I'm not a stupid person and I am a sober person and I can not figure out how this happened.
If it's too good to be true then it probably is, avoid being generally stupid people.
Hi, Everybody I am the kind of person who is pretty thorough in just about everything I do. I noticed that some of my claims that I sent in seemed to mysteriously just disappear even. When you cancel with them (I cancelled on the phone.) you can even hear it in their voice like "I wouldn't blame her (them) for canceling." Yes,it is a scam. (and I want to mention I wouldn't work for a company when you know you are scamming people.)
I have used FreeShipping.com for about 5-6 years. I understood from the beginning that I was signing up for an account with them. At the time I had baby twins and bought everything online. I get back way more every year than the yearly fee which I think is currently about $80. I get that back on amazon purchases alone every year. As long as I purchase online (now I have 3 small kids and live in a small town) I will use Freeshipping. And now it is so easy to get your rebate it is almost ridiculous. Love these guys.
If the only complaint from the reviewer is 'SCAM' then they just can't read the English language; or choose not to read, and just click*click*click through the pages.
Everything is fully explained when you sign up.
That being said, it's not worth it. Doesn't really save you that much money, takes forever for most checks to get back to you, and the responsibilities are put on you. There are much better services out there.
THIS SITE IS A HUGE SCAM. You will unknowingly sign up for a charge thinking that you are making an online purchase. They are highly unethical.
I was offered $10 rebate after placing an order on rakuten.com IF I opened an account with freeshipping.com. Doesnt say ANYWHERE that it costs money or how much money it just asks for a credit card number!?!? WTF! How can you ask for a credit card number from someone before you EVER mention a charge/cost/fee or the amount????? to me that sounds like a scam!!!!
I am a retired Police Lieutenant who just got ripped off by this scam. I am looking for someone to file a class action suit against this company. If I do not get my money back in full I am going to bring an action against these thiefs.
I am having to change my single bank account card so these idiots can not charge anything to me. Since I have a joint bank account and another single bank account, I will keep both accounts open at my bank. The single account which they think they are going to charge me every month will stay open, but I am cancelling my bank card for that account and will receive a new bank card in the mail in about 5-7 days. No problem since I transferred with the click of a button all the monies in my single account to my joint account or I can simply withdraw it. All this will be done prior to me attempting to cancel before the 30-day subscription is over. Take that! Dirty Rotten Scam Artists!!
Horrible! I am suprised anyone actually likes this website! ITS BOLOGNE!!!!
Too expensive. Also, I hate auto-renewal sites. Wasted a lot of money with them. Would never sign up again.
I have been a member of freeshipping for about 4 years or so. Each year I have saved a few hundred dollars in postage. This year I MIGHT be able to save over $400 in shipping from ordering items on the internet! I find it works out well when ordering cheap books or items from amazon (including marketplace sellers), ebay and half.com. Not sure why there are so many negative reviews. If you don't order that many items off the internet then please don't take out a membership with them. If you do order many items then read the FAQ section carefully. I have also had excellent customer service whenever I called the company about some issue. I think most of these complaints are unfair. The company has saved me hundreds of $ over the years, so I really like their service! Richard Pearson
I can't believe all of the bad reviews. I signed up when I bought from Proflowers.com. I canceled my account before the 30 day trial period was up. 3 weeks after that they sent a shipping check refund as promised. You must read the fine print and do everything they ask. Then it's no problem. Actually looking through the Freeshipping site, they have a lot of good shipping deals, but I don't buy on the internet enough to justify.
Not worth it. After paying the fees each month, you barely save $2. Plus, you have to stay on top of them. They take forever to send checks. Customer service is poor. Amazon prime is the way to go.
I tried out freeshipping.com using a 1-month free trial. They sent two checks as promised to cover shipping charges. Since I don't do enough online shopping at the covered sites, I cancelled the membership exactly one month after signing up. The did charge my credit card, so I called. I immediately got to talk to a very nice person that explained they do the credit card billing in the morning and I canceled in the evening and she immediately refunded my money.
If you do enough online shopping, I highly recommend the site. They make payments on time and have great customer service.
I am surprised by so many bad reviews while I have had one or two problems I just totaled my rebates since I rejoined this site 10 months ago and after deducting the $12.97 a month charge I have made back $202.27 cents and have four more rebates to come. When I joined the first time you had to mail in all your rebates and often I would forget or not be able to keep track so while I did at least break even it was too much work but now that you can submit via email I do it right away and it is working out well for me. I you only shop online occasionally it may not be a good idea but for someone like me who does almost all shopping online it is great. The only thing I don't like is that their search for included stores is not always accurate you need to go to all the sites to listed that start with a particular letter or number to see if it is listed. When you want to check it would be nice to just type in the name of the stroe you wish to purchase from but like I said sometimes it will not show up. Also you have to be prepared to wait several weeks for your rebates but it is still money in your pocket. I am curious as to where to sign up for $79 as I pay $12.97 monthly.
Clearly, this is a SCAM website. Never got my advertised rebate. Stay away!
I signed up for the free trial and they charge me $12.97; When I called them, they answered me in a really rude way. I said "at least you should send a email to remind me that my free trial is going to expire or do something instead of charging me money secretly" and they said that's your responsibility and no one forced you to sign up our free trial, that is your own choice". So, I lost $12.97 without getting anything. Freeshipping.com is such a bad company. Never use their service!
Absolute scam!!!!!!! Does not work. I signed up for a free 30 day trial. At the first day made a purchase thought their web site and claimed the shipping refunds, as they advertise you should do. 30 days ( 4 weeks) past by, I did not get anything they promised !!!!!! I canceled my membership. Garbage website.
Horrible service. Lost over $100 in rebates for shipping I could have done. They offered a 25 gift card for signing up but never gave it to me. Called to inquiry on the card and no one could give me any information other then its been submitted. Its been 2 months already. They canceled my account without my premission 6 weeks after opening the account. They gave me trouble on that issue to. Only received 1 check in 2 months, still wating on 5 others that they said they sent already. Lost over $100 but happy not to be doing business with them anymore. More ssues to talk about but not enough time. I dont recommend this site to anyone.
I thought that I was simply signing up for a rebate on a purchase I made. Ended up joining this. Very misleading to say the least. I cancelled right away. Hope they don't charge my credit card! I feel so scammed!
Got trial membership, got the intro reimbursement check after more than a month. I cancelled membership and got the cancellation notification, if I needed to call the bank if more charges appear, hopefully not! From several "Instant Free Shipping" websites that I checked, none of them shows Freeshipping.com logo/link that you can "instantly got the shipping charge wavered". It left you with the option of claiming for cash back, which is only up to $10 a month. So if you pay almost $13 per month to subscribe to this service and actually none of the instant free shipping websites gives you added benefit -free shipping- then you do the math...
Absolute garbage, did this 30-day trial to get a rebate on my ProFlowers order. Over a month later, still waiting on my rebate. Called customer service to cancel before my trial was up and they had already charged my card their monthly fee. When I contested it, they put me on hold and then hung up on me. Before that though, they told me my rebate was "in process" but couldn't give any sort of time when
I'd receive it. So not only did I end up paying for shipping on my flower order, I'm now out another $13 for this bogus service.
I was charged 5 times by this company (IC FREESHIPPING.COM, May also appear as: IC *FREESHIPPING.COM) at $11.97, my total is $60
the company without my authorization kept my credit card on file and charged me every month! I used free shipping only once. I asked to reimburse me, the company refused to do it. I think people should get together and and get this company out of business.
They are keep charging to my credit card. I don't know why and I don't say to do it
Crap website! They never sent my refund on shipping! Stay away from this SCAM website!
It would be easy to sign up for this without knowing what it was, but I read things many times over. It is too bad that people accidentally sign up for this and don't read all about it. I canceled my free month trial 29 days in, and got rebate checks for all the purchases I had made in that time. The grand total of savings was $80.39.
I got this much savings just simply for buying things on ebay and amazon through freeshipping.com's links and copying and pasting the order info in an email and sending it back to freeshipping.com The service was free! I even got a rebate check for return shipping. However, after reading the fine print such as 12 rebates max per website per year with a $10 max rebate per single rebate claim, I would not spend 14 bucks a month for the service unless I had tons of stuff on multiple websites I needed to buy, the money to buy them with, and the time to enter the rebate info for all those things.
SCAAAAAAAAM. Totally no bueno. Looked totally innocent at first, but then they tried to get my credit card info. Red flag alert! I did some research before I gave them anything else, and I'm extremely glad I did. Forget this place!!
I signed up for free shipping because it was recommended to me after I purchased from an online retailer (as in, I could get a rebate for shipping). I thought I would try it out. This site was such a hassle! I'm pretty good with figuring computer related things out, but this, I spent forever trying to figure out how to get my rebate. I finally gave up planning to cancel, and then forgot in the holiday mess.
I completely forgot about this site until they charged my credit card for my membership. I suppose I can't be too upset, because I did forget to cancel, but I really don't like companies that don't deliver a service, then charge you a monthly fee till you cancel. The grouchy customer inside me has decided that is how they make their money. Off people who never end up getting free shipping, then they don't remember to cancel.
On the plus side, I emailed them (because I didn't see anywhere to cancel my subscription) and they promptly cancelled my subscription. So they get 2 stars.
* I agree with the other reviewer, Amazon prime is a MUCH better deal.
I had an awful experience- I thought I would give them a try- but after spending over an hour on the phone today to get my lousy $10 - it definitely was not worth it. I ordered from one of their so called partners- Personal Creations - it said instant credit on the freeshipping.com website- it wasn't happening so I called both sites- turns out I had to go to the proflowers site, order the product by logging in the product number from personal creations site in order to get my $10. Both sites blamed each other and of course it never got resolved. what a lousy way to run both businesses. I certainly will never order from either again.
FRAUD. What a waste of money...you are tricked into thinking you are getting some free promo, then you get billed the $12 per month. For what? Most websites offer free shipping. Case in point...http://www.ebags.com today, 12/16/11 offers free shipping and discounts on many bags. If you login to freeshipping.com and browse ebags.com throught freeshipping.com, all of a sudden all of the prices for the bags go UP..to the tune of $50!! WTF!!? Total SCAM. They trick you into thinking you are getting a good deal but when you browse websites from them, the websites increase their prices to offset the shippping? LAME. STAY AWAY. FRAUD FRAUD FRAUD.
It works for me. Does what it says...just remember you must use the credit cards registered with the site to qualify for the rebates. Other than that, they simplified the process so there is less hassle. Worth the monthly fee in my case.
As of 8-28-2011 the MONTHLY fee is $12.97 - almost $157 a year - almost twice Amazon Prime. And nowhere in the promo materials is that disclosed, until you go to sign up. There are no reviews on ResellerRatings.com for them although they are listed but do not participate in monitoring feedback or resolving issues.
I have to be honest here. I only used the free trial and cancelled before the thirty days was up otherwise it costs you $79 for membership per year which is what amazon charges for their amazon prime membership. I signed up to save on shipping from a few certain retailesr on the freeshipping list. I used this service three times during the trial offer and had no issues but this was probably because I used only merchants offered on this list. The shipping charge on my orders was automatically dismissed so I didn't have to worry about waiting for a check. I recently rechecked their website and see that they are offering more merchants on their list than when I was using the free trial. It's cool to use if you order from merchants on the list that automatically take shipping off otherwise I don't think I would bother. I have noticed alot recently that many merchants are choosing to offer free shipping or reduced shipping in their promotions now and this may be the wave of the future.
I'm not sure why everyone is having all of these problems. I signed up voluntarily, at a rate of $8 a month. I shop online for EVERYTHING, so this site has been really great for me. Although it can take up to 8 weeks to get a check, they always come on every claim. I also have been reimbursed for return shipping, and buy my movie tickets from here also. If you plan to stay a member, you can really save a lot of money.
We have received multiple charges from "IC freeshipping.com" which we never signed up for. We have no idea how these charges ever first started appearing on our credit card. They are for 14.97 each and were missed a few times by us since we use our credit cards for everything. This company is a total SCAM stay away from them!!!
I had charge on my credit card from the website listed in this review; when I questioned the charge, I was told via an email that I had signed up for a membership for FreeShipping.com for an offer to get a free shipping rebate for an order placed with SportsFanfare.com - I told them I had never placed an order with or visited the SportsFanfare.com, and I asked FreeShipping.com to refund the $95.88 to my credit card. THEY NEVER RESPONDED. I HAD TO CANCEL MY CREDIT CARD BECAUSE OF THIS.
It looked good but I became suspicious when they asked for my credit card info - why would they need it if they're giving free shipping? I could not find anything about "membership" charges other than "free for 30 days" and suspected a hefty charge. Stay awayfrom this "service"!
This is the biggest SCAM on earth! My mother thought she was getting a rebate of $10 for shipping from a high end clothier instead was charged &89 for a service she didn't even know existed. Shame on the clothier for even putting this information on their invoices implying that the customer is getting a rebate from them and not a third party scammer. We need to stop these kine of internet traps.
DO NO SIGN UP UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!!! Be warned. Do not fall for their free shipping gimmick. They just sign you up for an automatically recurring monthly fee "service" called freeshipping.com. A total gimmick. They ask for your credit card information to "refund your shipping" and then after you enter it they tell you you'll be charged monthly for some lame "service" you'll never use. BTW their monthly fee was more than even my one time shipping charge would have been. I still haven't been able to stop them from charging me!!!
