Today, I found an unauthorized charge on my bank card for $1.00. The bank told me that it was from Budget Savers. When I called them, I was informed that I had started a trial membership over the phone. That is an outright lie! They promised to refund my $1.00. They had my card number from the trial subscription that I Did order, way back in August, and then cancelled successfully. I NEVER did get the the free gift (gas rebate) that I was promised. WHAT A SCAM!!!
This company offered a $100 gas card for providing them with your CC information and allowing them to charge your card for $1 for a 30 day trial period. Never received the $100 gas card and cancelled after the trial period ended. However this company still charged my card and when I called they said they never received any cancellation request and this time when I asked for a confirmation number of the cancellation the gentleman was not very forthcoming. Asked for a credit for these unauthorized charges was told I would receive something in the mail that I could fill out and then send back to them. Had to turn to my CC company and dispute the charges and am very thankful for the help the CC company offered on my behalf. I felt like I had tried to do the right thing and cancel within their specified parameters but this company did not uphold their end.
I was called on November 1, 2014 by Budget Savers and told they would send me a "packet" describing how I could save AT LEAST $ 30.00 per month on all kinds of services and at all kinds of stores. They took $ 1.00 initial fee out of my checking account and I have NEVER heard another word. No "packet", no follow-up phone call to see if I received it and had any questions...NOTHING! There has been NO communication from them...I was told to contact the number on the "packet" to cancel within 14 days. With NO "packet", I have NO PHONE NUMBER TO CALL !!! I want this company blocked from hitting my checking account and I want this mess cancelled IMMEDIATELY, but they have given me NO WAY to get in touch with them!
I didn't even know about this company until I investigated a $1 pending charge that I noticed on my checking account the previous day. I never okay, authorized or knew about this until I looked up who it was coming from. I'm mad as Hell right now and I'm not gonna except this charge; as soon as the bank opens tomorrow I will be there, and then I will call these Thieving scammers to make sure that this never happens again and cancel this 'account' that I don't even know exist. I have no former knowledge or email from them.
Recently my elderly father ordered a hearing aid from a tv ad he saw, and got overcharged for the "free" items they offered him. Soon after he was contacted by Budget Savers offering him a lot of free stuff...he adamantly refused the offer, and told them he wasn't interested. Today he discovered a $29.95 charge from Budget Savers on his bank statement. He tried calling the number for them and got a recording that the number was disconnected. Now he has to cancel his card and get a new one, and call all of his utility companies and have them change the billing card number because of these SCAMMERS at Budget Savers. Why can't something be done to shut these a..holes down????? They prey on elderly people who aren't savvy enough on today's dishonest practices, steal money from them and then disappear and pop up somewhere else.
I ordered the product called Tag a Way. They then tried to get me to subscribe to a company called Budget Savers. The company Budget Savers said I can cancel anytime and I can keep the 60 dollar Walmart or Target card for just trying their product they then wanted me to confirm my debit card info. I asked why and they told me that they were going to charge me a dollar for the first fourteen days or so for trying them out and I can keep the 60 dollar Walmart or Target card. I declined the Budget Savers.
They are misleading as to making me believe that they are giving me 60 dollars just to try their product. I found out because I noticed that 60 dollars was put back into my bank account. I believe that their practices are misleading the public to get people to subscribe to them.
I ordered something online and received a confirmation email saying that my order was processed and was going to be shipped; 3 days later I received a phone call from a nice lady saying the speech that someone posted earlier. Anyway we went through the whole gas card thing and she going to transfer me to someone else, this person claimed to be with the shipping department and needed my cc number again to process and send out my order. Maybe he meant the budget savers order but it was implied that my original order would not be sent. I told him I would not give out my cc # again as I had received an email saying my order was going to be shipped. Having worked for an identity protection company I am suspicious of everyone (after hearing so many horror stories you get a little jaded I guess) I told him again I would not give out my number he persisted that my order would not be sent, I then told him to give me a number to call him back to verify that it was a legitimate company and he gave me [protected]. I called the company I ordered my product from and they informed me that my order was shipped yesterday. I guess this budget savers didn't do anything illegal but they are deceptive. Always be careful, when in doubt call the original company to verify any need for information to be given out again and lastly its redundant but if something sounds too good to be true IT IS! NOTHING IS FREE!
Called in February 2010 to cancel membership. Representative was extremely rude to me when I attempted to cancel the subscription. She tried everything in her manner for me to keep the subscription. I should have called back the next day to confirm the confirmation that the membership was indeed cancelled. I should have looked closely at my credit card statement, but I didn't, my fault. I see two charges of over $24.85 on my credit card. I attempted to explain the situation to the rep, but to no avail. She cancelled my subscriptions, and I received in the mail that they have proof that I subscribed to the membership. I want them to find my phone call proofing that I cancelled. I am also complaining to the BBB.
I ordered a Criss Angel magic kit for my grandson for christmas this week, the following day budget savers called to verify my purchase, of course I did, I never gave them any account information, but they told me they were sending me $100.00 worth of free gas certificates, remember the word free. I never gave them permission to take any monies out of my account, I have no clue how they even got my information, but after checking my account a few minutes ago I noticed a hold for tomorrow for $1.00. I guess I will go to the bank Friday, tomorrow is Thanksgiving, I don't think this will be the last withdrawl from these people! I still have'nt gotten chared for the magic kit! Boy these scammers work quick!!
I purchased I renew braclet on line from I renew.com - after purchase they put on marketing people I listen called was recorded they said I would recieve materials in mail and look at them and would have time to cancel if I wanted to. there was a one dollar trial charge which expired 11/16/2010 - it came with a free 100 gas coupon. I recieved the material today ll/18/2010 - went on line to get the 100 free gas voucher and couldn't do it and read complaints from other people who had the same problem. I called to cancel, spoke to Jonathan who was very abrupt and told me I was doing the wrong thing to get the gas voucher I tried what he said but didn't work, I told him to cancel the account and asked what my credit card whas charged he said 29.95 I just received the material and called as soon as I could, but missed the trial date by 2days so that's why they charged the 29.95 dollars. To me the whole thing was a scam I had asked if my card would be charged and was told I had enough time to cancel after reading the materials. I will put a dispute in with my charge card but somebody should stop this. I am a senior but I trusted that they were telling me the truth. the tial ended on the 16th and I recieved the material on the 18 and Jonathan said they gave me a telephone# to call to cancel - never happened I was supposed to get the material first. thank Mrs. R.DeMonte
I was online looking over my account and I realized thatfor the last 6 months my account has been charged...
This is so wrong for them to be allowed to the public!!! How is this looked over? The way the economy is and everyone is looking for a bargain because times are so tough. The person in charge of this should be locked up . Nothing they said was true !! NOTHING!!! they tell you that you will recieve your information within a few days and that you have 14 days to cancel but I didnt even get the piece of paper until the 14 days had passed. I called and told them my money had better be deposited back into my account and she agreed and I even told her I wanted my dollar back too not just the 24.95. I could say alot more but I dont have the time and if I don't get my money back within 5 days they haven't heard the last from me.
Budget Savers is a scam..They acquire your information from companies you place orders with online. Their phone number is [protected]. Their services are provided by PROVELL INC. P.O. Box 5265, Hopkins, MN [protected]. I want everyone to have this information in case you want to file a suit against this company. They do not cancel even after you call them..I had to make 7 calls for cancellation before they finally canceled. Still not for sure that i am canceled. Hope this information is helpful. good luck to you all.
I printed out my bank statement and, much to my dismay, noticed a company called Budget Savers was skimming 24.95 off of my checking account on a mnthly. basis. Of course, I have received NOTHING from this company and am even unsure of what they do other than embezzle money from struggling people like myself. I have NO IDEA how they obtained my card info either. I immediately called their toll-free # and could reach no one because it was the weekend. I then contacted my bank and placed an immedite stop on my ATM card and requested complaint/reimbursement forms for three months worth of bank withdrawals: my bank is great at handling these matters. Today-Monday- called BS (ironic?) again and spoke with a supervisor who claimed I would have to fill out a "request for refund" form albeit I was DEMANDING I get my money back, ie I didn't get far. When I threatened to contact the BBB, the sup. warned me that taking such action would prolong, or even deny me a refund despite the fact she could not answer what exactly the company did OR how my credit card # was obtained: she evaded any and all of my questions. This company is DEFINITELY a SCAM and I have read on the complaint sites that they allegedly offer grocery coupons and/or gas cards but I have received NOTHING other than a lot of grief and waste of my valuable time trying to get my money back from these jerks. BEWARE OF BUDGET SAVERS AND IF YOU HAVE ONLINE BANKING BE SURE AND CHECK YOUR STATEMENTS MONTHLY BECAUSE MANY/MOST BANKS CAN ONLY REIMBURSE BACK TO A PARTICULAR DATE, IE THREE MONTHS-DEPENDING!

Budget Savers has been calling my cell phone for a month and I have never answered because the number was not...
I was promised Gas Vouchers and Gift Cards for signing up... Never received this and was billed by Budget Saver, Privacy Member Service and Travel Member for over $75 the next month when it was not cancelled. I called Budget Saver at [protected] an pressed #2 to speak with someone. I requested a refund and explained I had never received anything they had promised along with the other Privacy Member [protected] and Travel Member [protected] they all explained that my membership will be canceled and money put back in my account within 3-5 business days. I will keep you posted on it this really happens. DO NOT LET THEM TAKE MONEY FROM YOU TAKE THE TIME TO CALL AND CANCEL, ALSO GET AGENT #, AND DATE/TIME YOU CALLED FOR YOUR RECORDS!!!
Budget savers has been deducting $24.95 for the last 3 months from my husbands account. We dont know what we are being billed for. Upon quiry to the bank we were informed of the deductions today. We would like to contact the company to cease all the deductions but they dont have any phone number to contact them with.
Can someone help us contact them. The deductions are too costly for us especially not receiving anything for our money.
I think this is a scam.

something really need to be done with these scam companies that are trying to get people out of there money. they make these promises to make things sound good and then they turn out to be a scam.
I keep getting emails about what to do about this company, do not and I repeat do not get involved with this company, those of you who have I am not sure what you should do. I called the company and told them I wanted my money back and they gave me my money back.
As I said previously, they went so fast that it sounded as though everything was free and I would be getting this and that. I do not know how they got my credit card number without my consent, but they did. I never one time gave them my credit card number over the phone this is a scam and do not do any business with this company. I did get my money back, but if you dont, I do not know what to tell you. All I can tell you is dont get involved with this company.
