Discount Book Sale.com / Hooked in with Smart Savings Center

1 United States Review updated:

Many are aware of the Smart Savings Center.com scam. Discount Book Sale.com is a very popular perpetrator of this scam. Beware of purchasing any books from this book re-seller - there is a very real reason why the books are so cheap. As you purchase a book, you may find that you will be charged a monthly "membership" fee of 19.99 per month. When I inquired what the membership was for, the operator on the line could not answer my question.

    I was hoping to buy my son some books as a gift for learning to read above his grade level (2nd). I was so excited when I found this web site. However my excitement was quickly dashed when I checked out this web sites reviews. After learning that they have a scam where when you place an order they automatically sign you up for a membership at $19 or $29 a month I decided to see if there was a way to order w/out becoming a member. There is, but my books went from being $10.95 a piece to being $25.98 a piece. Big difference! Also, the shipping costs increase as well! I am so upset! I had already pictured my son's excitement as he opened his special reward! I never write these complaints EVER but this web site deserves every bad review it gets! People should know.

    I was also scammed when I purchased some books recently from discountbook.com. I happened to be checking my bank account and realized I had extra charges. I immediately called to inquire about them and found out that I had been signed up for two trial monthly memberships. I was very upset because I don't remember seeing anything about it when I made my purchase and I didn't receive any emails about signing up for them. I will say that the customer representative was very polite and helpful. She canceled the memberships immediately and I got a full refund. I still will never buy from them again.
