    My mom just called me regarding this. Fell for one :(
     
  2. I went to Vapestock 2012 in Florida, there were all the free samples you can handle. Most were good and of coarse just how the real free samples work they were FREE and a couple I must have so they are getting my money willingly.

    I learned my lesson with free trials of Resveratrol. It made an incredible mess, and I ended up having to get a new card and it took months to sort out the mess. Nothing is free!

    Yay--I made my first post!

    Pretty much common sense. Buyer beware. So far for me this forum has been educational and insightful.

    their is actually one of those companies that completely messed up my friends bank account. she had use my PV and for some reason instead of going to any of the sites that i had mentioned "ECF" cough cough, she just did a google search for local "big retailer" she had it for 2 days before i was able to convince her to send it back and take one of my silver bullets. about 2 weeks later they pulled a good $300+ from her account and we are still fighting with them over it.

    Thanks for the info. I never fall for the 'free' things... if it seems too good to be true, it probably is :)

    Never found one of the free offers but wouldn't have taken it even if I did. I did buy a starter set the day I found out about e-cigs but that was after spending four hours watching youtube videos and searching/finding this forum (and reading). Then I pulled the trigger and put in an order for a starter set.

    e-cigs & juice is so cheap that its not worth the risk of a free offer imo.

    I've never seen these offers (thank God). Sounds like all the "free" offerings....they give you something of perceived value, then have high automatic charges on accessories, etc. to more than make up for the freebie.

    Totally agree - like this in many different areas, not just ecigs. free rarely free.

  23. Last November while I was in the hospital following removal of my 11 month old knee replacement i got an unsolicated e-mail for literally e-cigs I had never heard of this and went all-in! Less week later the whole thing arrived despite the warning from my bank. It seemed perfect (of course I was on some serious drugs lol). After a second surgery I was wrapped up in and sent to a physical therapy rehab center. Then the drugs wore off and I relized that every time I took a drag my throat tightened up wheezing ensued. Since I was allowed to smoke what I now know as analogs, ecigs to the drawer. I was there untill Febuary, they sent more on a regular scedule and I didn't really care as I had other things to deal with mostly no knee joint. After the first shipment I called because i wanted to change to menthol. I have a new knee now, cancelled the company, and moved on to try many others. The cost for 2 boxes of carts 79.95. This company knew what I was going thru too. At 54 I should have known.....
