While browsing online be careful with free or low-cost trial offers. Most offers require consumers to enter their card information to either pay for shipping or to cover future costs if the individual forgets to end the trial or subscription. Some deceitful businesses hide the terms and conditions of their offers in a small font or use
pre-checked sign-up boxes as the default setting.
Make sure you: 1) Research the company online (making sure they are credible with good consumer ratings), 2) Read the fine print, 3) Mark your calander to cancel your service before you a billing takes place, 4) Watch out for pre-checked boxes regarding the offer.
