I signed up for a Avenue account and specifically told the salesgirl I did not want insurance on my card. I got my letter today stating that I was instated in their plan on the day I signed up for the credit card. I assume I am in for a fight from all the complaints all over the web. I am fortunate that I paid my bill immediately after shopping so I had no balance to be charged on. But I intend to call Account Assure and ask for an email confirmation that I am no longer enrolled in their program, then I'm calling the credit card people and cancelling my card and telling them why and then I'm contacting Avenue and tell them why I will no longer be shopping in their stores and then I'm going to find that nice young sales girl that filled out the credit card info and explain how I don't appreciate having to spend this time.
The only way to stop them is to cancel your cards at all the shops and tell them why. It isn't worth a hassle for a couple of dollars and they are counting on it. But when the stores lose your business and the credit card loses your business, they will get rid of this rip off. It is probably directly connected in some way to the credit card and a couple of dollars from all of us really adds up.
I also suggest you contact the attorney general of the state that Assure is located in and fill out the forms and request your refund and why. It's a lot of paperwork but just how mad are you? The Attorney General will fight this fight for you and for free. They will also straighten out the company from doing illegal practices.
