Additional Complaint Information
The Cleveland location is the headquarters for this national mail order company. All complaints involving this company and its many trade names are handled by the Cleveland BBB.
The BBB has processed a large number of complaints about this company. In most cases, the firm gave prompt and proper consideration to complaints, and any other matters brought to its attention by the BBB.
Some complaints processed by the BBB concern confusion over the company's membership policy in their various programs, including Passport to Savings, Passport to Health (formerly known as Family Health Network program), ID Sentinel Alert, and Easy Living. Some consumers claim they are not aware that the company automatically bills their accounts for the renewal fee unless they notify them to cancel. Many of these consumers complain that they were not aware that they had been enrolled in the program, which is most often done by phone as a follow-up to a catalog order. The company has responded to these complaints by canceling the membership(s) and issuing refunds. The company has implemented procedures to remedy confusion over enrollment which appears to have reduced the number of complaints concerning these programs; however, these complaints have not been entirely eliminated. Consumers who feel they have been enrolled in these programs without their agreement or knowledge should contact the company or file a complaint with the BBB.
Other complaints involve credit billing errors, non-delivery of ordered products or incorrect items received, and claims that the company did not refund the amount it promised or refund delays.
