we bought some stuff at motherhood a while back. they pretty much have a monopoly on nice maternity clothes. their prices aren’t too terrible if you shop carefully. we paid with our checkcard, and apparently signed up for 2 free issues of Parenting. all fine and dandy.
then a $20 charge from Parenting shows up on our check card statement. apparently we had to call to cancel the mag if we didnt want them to charge the card we used at Motherhood. I’m sure no one bothered to tell us this.
to their credit, the lady at Parenting was very nice when we called to cancel and get a refund. but this is clearly a scam, and I’m wondering how many people are snagged, especially those who don’t keep a close eye on their statements. of course we’ll see if and when we actually get our $20 back.
I remember being disgusted by the wedding industry back in the day (except for DJs of course). the baby industry is no better.
