I, like I assume every other member, have just received an epz email regarding a free T Shirt from Vistaprint.
I get emails from Vistaprint just about every day offering free stuff including Tshirts, a very good offer, but as we all know it is just a sprat to catch a mackerel.
Vistaprint has been the subject of discussion quite a few times and I do wonder about this offer appearing to be exclusive but in reality it's open to all; just the same as the endless stream of spam that will follow if you take up the offerSmile

We weren't aware of any of the 'bad press' and would certainly not knowingly do business with disreputable companies :-(

Seems to be an issue Tj that you sign up for one of these, forget to tick a box that says you are not interested in one feature and then get charged 9.99 per month.

Can't remember what it was called. There are a lot of happy customers that have signed up and filled in the form "correctly", but also a lot of unhappy ones.

Companies should not resort to this kind of "trick" to get continued custom in my opinion. If people want to sign up for such a rewards scheme, then they will do so if it is openly advertised, not hidden in small print.

Thanks Cheryl - Oh dear :-(
We really didn't know - hope it's not the case.
We're calling the client to confirm now...

Totally agree - and Vistaprint are notorious for this.

Last I heard of that issue was way back in 2006. Never had any issues here when I've ordered through them.

I think it's a case of (as with everything you do online) read everything carefully, be careful where you place your ticks, and remember to cancel where appropriate!

Is the t-shirt free but you pay for the design then the delivery.

Never had any problems with them - as long as you're careful in what you tick or un-tick, you get exactly what you want. It is true that they are the most enthusiastic senders of e-mails I have ever come across, but when I don't open them, after a while the new ones automatically go to my spambox, so it really isn't a problem.
