TLG Great fun, Aka Days Inn travelers Advantage:
Our family booked an online reservation for Days Inn in San Diego Ca, after we booked our hotel online an agent come on and said in short terms (I saved chat conversation)
Agent: Thank you for booking with day’s inn…
I would like to give you the opportunity to get $20 off your days Inn reservation, receive a $30 cash back mail in rebate... you will also have a membership with
Day’s inn for future discounts for hotel room rates, vacation package, and much more…
Just for trying the traveler’s advantage you will receive the first 30 days for free…
Even if you decide to cancel you still get your cash back mail in rebate and you can cancel anytime, during or after the free trial period by calling our toll free number and you won’t be billed another dime, the cash back mail in rebate is yours to keep no matter what…


We stayed in San Diego for about a week in a half in and the next day after we returned home I cancelled the membership and received a confirmation # that I kept on file. Today, 4 Months latter I realized we were still being charged for the monthly membership fee of the $11.00 through my checking account.
I called TLG Great fun [protected]) and informed them I was still being charged the 11 dollars and that I had not received my $30 mail in rebate.
The agent replied that she could only authorize 2 of the 3 monthly charges and that it would take up to 2-3 months for the reimbursement. If I wanted to receive the 3rd reimbursement, I would have to fax or mail a request.
Mail- in rebate: the agent informed me that it was sent to my email address…


*charging my account after cancelation; is a way of making money off from people who do not keep cancelation confirmations
* Not sending the 3rd reimbursement…is a way of making money off from people who would not bother faxing or mailing the request of only $11
*A mail-in rebate is a rebate sent to your home address and not emails
I would say that this company is a scam and I would not recommend them to anyone.

    Great Fun is one of several thousand "affinity" groups run by Trilegiant Corporation who owns Great Fun's website and about 1, 730 other domains. They have been sued by numerous State Attorneys General to the tune of tens of millions of dollars in fines. They work with almost all online travel, retail and food entities and use cell phone scams as well.

    Trilegiant's email address "[protected]@dglaw.com" is associated with about 1, 824 domains. The company recently change names to Affinion Group - their email "[protected]@affiniongroup.com" is associated with about 1, 826 domains.
    If you receive a check from them. Endorsing it will give them permission to tap your checking account for a monthly fee (the permission is in almost illegible faded print on the back of the check).

    My mother was caught up in this scam as well. Great Options charged her $13+ per month for "membership." She was supposed to receive a monthly magazine and gas discounts up to $50, which she never did. When she called to stop her "membership, " she was advised she had renewed it for another year, which she did not do. Great Options is going to refund $26 to my mother and send her their "Extra Special Savings" gas coupons to use toward $40 back on gas purchases (not the $50 originally offered). I viewed these coupons online and they are quarterly rebates that require the submission of an original gas receipt and a membership number--so if my mother is no longer a member, how will she receive the rebates? Nice. We were provided the following contact address and telephone number for further discussion of this matter: Travelers Advantage, P.O. Box 6100, Westerville, OH 43086-6100, (614) 823-5124. Thank you both for the information you provided. Jill
