Contract dispute

You technically "signed" a contract stating you would make 10 monthly payments from what you are saying if my math is correct. So you are trying to cancel your membership after the 10 day period and don't want to make the other 6 payments but lose the payments you already made. Just making sure I understand the complaint correctly because it makes sense to me and I know that you can cancel and stop making those payments. I would suggest going to a supervisor and stop talking to the person who sold it to you. They have some really good people there, I love my account manager, she always returns my calls and I have taken 2 vacations using my points and have gotten 2 bedroom units each time. I think you just got someone who doesn't care about you but is in it for the money and won't be with the company much longer.

TOTAL SCAM

BEWARE! BEWARE! BEWARE!!
Terms and Conditions state that you have 10 business days to cancel. I called on the 10th business day to cancel and was given such a runaround that you know that this is NOT a legit business but a SCAM.
I was transferred, hung up on, told that I was not within my 10 days when clearly I was and then even told that ONLY a supervisor could make the cancellation due to them trying to tell me that she was on lunch and could only call me back within 24 - 48 hours to make the cancellation.
She did call back within the hour. However, she then told me that because Saturday was a day that "they were all in the office" being that it was the 3rd Sat. of the month that it was considered a business day and therefore, she was unable to cancel my membership because it would have been considered Day 11! LIE. Previous rep already said I was within my 10 days.
I then told her that I had already contacted my credit card company and they were going to refund me and/or have me file a dispute so that I would get back the $249 down payment + stop any future recurring charges that they "decided" that they were going to start charging me per month WITHOUT MY CONSENT.
She finally agreed after I told her that, to refund my deposit and make the cancellation. I will be making a call to the BBB.

False Information

False Information
I am a retired veteran who saw GovVacationRewards website through the Aafes website and thought it was a good deal. After a couple of years I bought an upgrade for $2000. At no time did they say is was for only 2 years. If I would have known that I would have never bought it. They 100,000 points they gave me were wasted because I didn't know about them expiring. At no time did any sales person or customer representative tell me they expired. When I called to find out why I couldn't get into my account, I then found out about the expiration. They offered to reinstate my account for 2 more years, give me 90,000 points and $1500 in some other program they have for another $1500. I was very happy until this point.

Hard Selling Liars

I got several emails from Govt. Vacation Rewards (GVR). I skimmed over the first one, visited the website and it sounded "too good to be true" so I left it alone. Then because I opened the proverbial can of worms the constant phone calls started. Once a day for the first few then progressively up to 4-5. That made me even more leery of them. Then they caught me by calling with a different Caller ID and I answered. That was my first mistake. Belinda Bernaise or whatever her name was started her scripted spiel. I cut her off telling her to get to the point. She started with "how much do you travel. How would you like to travel for FREE"! She proceeded to grill me like a tuna, fast talking spiel and changing the direction of the conversation as I wasn't buying. When she got to the PRICE I thought she meant $29.99 not $3,000!! I told her I was getting ready to leave town so I wasn't committing myself to any expenditures without checking the company out myself. She professed to understand my caution. Unfortunately she was a royal pain in my gluteus maximus (back end)! She called 6-8 times the next day and 6 times the day after until I finally got on the phone. She said, "well I am glad I finally got a hold of you because I know you are flying out to the West Coast and wanted to help you pay for your trip so in reality it costs you nothing"! Now I had reached my wit's end with her and told her, "I haven't had a moment to even visit the website lady. My life doesn't revolve around telephone solicitors trying to separate me from my money. I'm not interested. NO! NO THANK YOU, NOT INTERESTED"! She wasn't done so as she started giving me her name and number again I stopped her telling her I already had it. Then I hung up and went to my computer to search for GVR. Not surprisingly the first 5-7 items listed on the search page were websites for people to share their horror stories about RIPOFF COMPANIES!! Many different websites with all the same results. One star of five ratings and absolute Stephen King style horror stories about people getting "deals" that were more expensive than any person with a computer could find on their own. Being stuck with ridiculous monthly payments each one with a $9.00 processing fee. So my advice to all military and veterans out there is if you get an email from GVR mark it as SPAM and save yourself time and lots of money.
