Certs, Inc — Won Free Trip... yeah right!
I signed up for a Win a Free Golf Cart, which in turn meant we had to go and listen to the company's spill for 60 min. One of their promotions were, if you hit a Hole in One, you win a free trip to the Bahama's. Well I hit the hole in one. So at the end of the presentation I was given my voucher to send off for my free trip. All I had to pay was $9.50 per person for the trip. That is what is posted on the brochure you are handed. So I sent in the money. This week I received the "Free" Vacation paperwork. First of all they put you on this small boat from Port Everglades, FL for 5 1/2 hours to Freeport. Then you get to stay in this Resort for 2 nights, 3 days and the boat come's back and picks you up. Well I decided I would look up the Resort they listed. Give me a break. The resort is in downtown Freeport with a 1 Star rating. Not even close to the beach. The reviews for the hotel were horrible. Now to top that off, it was going to cost $159.00 per person not including Taxes. According to the reviews on the Resort's website, the taxes were $25.00 per person per night. If the dates you chose were in their "on" season, then it would cost more.
This "Free" trip will cost me around $437.00 not including, food & fun.
To me there should be a law against these companies as false advertisement. Now we are getting all these cards in the mail and phone calls. It appears they have now sold our name and address to these Telemarketing companies.
