On the 7th of this month (December) I began to do my online shopping with my card... prior to receiving my card I was never told that I would have to pay and additional $40.00 for their gas as well as another $7.00 for ups delivery and signature.
Please note that I understand that gas price's have gone up and yes they should get something but $40.00 plus $7.00 is a bit much for someone like myself on a fixed income. I wanted very much to build up my credit not go farther in debt trying to.
The total amount of item's I was hoping to buy came to a total of $97.98 with these other charges it came to if I can remember correctly $143.

This is scam!

I was excited to get my Horizon Gold Card in the mail on Saturday February 9, 2008. Then when I opened the envelope, much to my dismay, there was not a Visa or Mastercard credit card, just some cheap paper card. I have good credit and I thought I was applying for a REAL credit card. So on Monday February 11, 2008, I called the 800 number. (I would have called sooner, but their hours are Mon-Fri 9-5, or something like that). You know, with my other cards, I can call the 800 number 24/7. Anyway, when I called, I spoke to a Customer Service Rep., I just said that I wanted to cancel the card, period. He went on to say "BLAH BLAH BLAH" I said "NO I WANT TO CANCEL." He said " YOU HAVEN'T EVEN BEEN TO THE OUTLET STORE". I said "YOU HAVE NOTHING I WANT TO BUY. I WANT TO CANCEL THE CARD. I DO NOT WANT YOU TO TAKE ANYTHING MORE OUT OF MY ACCOUNT." I did not realize there was a monthly fee of more money. I'm thinking that if I had been able to get onto their site I would have been charged an extra fee. Thank god I couldn't. Back to my story. Since I was determined to cancel, he could not help me, he would have me talk to a supervisor. I talked to a supervisor and then a manager. Luckily, I was able to cancel my card. I even got a cancellation number and an email stating my request to cancel and my refund will take at least 72 hours to process. The FUNNY part, although the $79.95 they took out of my account immediately, I get a refund of $59.95, because there is a $20.00 cancellation fee. This card is a total SCAM. SCAM SCAM SCAM
