Sybarite Elite handles multiple products. Typically each product has a 14 day trial offer available, or customers can purchase the products outright (one time purchase). When ordering our trials, we typically send a full one month supply of the product to sample for the 14 days. If customers wish to cancel they can do so before the 14 days ends and return the remainder of the product. Otherwise, after the 14 days ends customers would be charged full price for the first product and also enrolled onto the monthly membership. All of the information regarding our trials and memberships are stated on the corresponding websites.

Additional Information

Consumers have reported confusion regarding the terms and conditions of the company’s trial program. When placing a trial order, consumers must pay for shipping and handling, and at the conclusion of the trial period consumers are automatically billed on a recurring basis for future product.

In the course of investigation, BBB found some of the terms and conditions unclear, including return policy and cancellation of automatic billing. The return policy, as found on the company’s website, states in part:  

 “Product Returns: We do require you to return the product when cancelling before the trial ends. You must pay for the return, musclexedge reserves the right to refund or not refund if the product is returned, and the right to bill you if the product is returned or not.”  

BBB requested clarification on the terms and conditions, however as of August 9, 2013 BBB has received no explanation regarding the return process.  

 Consumers are advised to be aware of all terms and conditions before entering into a trial.
