Additional Complaint Information
BBB, in its three year reporting period, has received consumer complaints concerning full membership charges being applied to consumers' credit cards prior to the end of the thirty (30) day "free" trial period.
Veterans Advantage responded to complaints by stating that consumers who select to have the $4.95 processing fee waived bypass the thirty (30) day trial period. By doing so, those consumers enroll directly into the membership club, thereby creating an immediate full membership charge to their credit cards.
Veterans Advantage resolved complaints brought to its attention by BBB by providing refunds.
On March 31, 2008, Veterans Advantage representatives met with BBB staff to discuss the company's programs, as well as advertising modifications the company is making to address underlying causes of consumer complaints filed with BBB.
