Thread Details

Here is a list of eCustService links that I have compiled over the past year or so. These links contain print and web forms for use with the Trilegiant memberships. You can sign up for most of their trial offers for free or $1 (depending on the offer) at most offer sites that provide you with cash or something for signing up for them. I have used most of the Trilegiant trial offers numerous times and have gotten multiple free gift cards, cash bach, electronics, and coupons with every trial.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Tip 1: It is best to spread out the submission of freebies over the course of your trial period to be safe.
Tip 2: They will do just about anything to keep you as an active member meaning they will offer you gift cards, cash back, extended trial, etc. YMMV depending on the rep.
Tip 3: You should be able to get freebies for every month of your membership. I have not tried this as I have not stayed on past the extended trial.
Tip 4: In the terms of every Trilegiant program they state, "If you cancel this Agreement after your trial period, you will be refunded the current month's paid membership fee." That pretty much explains it. Wink

Well, I got some gift cards earlier this month and today I just received 4 checks with a total value of $60. I could have sent in more offers, but I didn't want to send in the smaller cash rebate amounts just to be safe.

2x $10 Exxon Gift Cards - Great Fun
2x $10 Lowes Gift Cards - CompleteHome

$20 Check - CompleteHome
$20 Check - Great Fun
$10 Check - Great Fun
$10 Check - AutoVantage

I am still waiting on a couple others that I sent in, but I don't always get all of what I sent in. Most of it gift cards arrive shortly after submitting the form online and the checks usually arrive close to the end of my trial period.

Got a $10 B&N GC from NetMarket today. I think I filled out the form a couple of weeks ago. Nothing else yet though.

Hi,

Hope this hasn't already been answered...I went through the entire post and didn't see this:

Suppose I sign up for Great Fun and the offer is Two 10.00 Gift Cards for Circuit City.

In the original post are the links to all of the Great Fun Offers. If I would rather have the Two 10.00 Exxon Cards can I just click on that link instead of the Circuit City link? Make sense? Any tried this?

Also, I assume (I know, bad idea)....that I can I only do one of the links per membership?

Thanks!
Michelle

Yes, you can do a different reward if you want. They usually offer you other rewards upon you trying to cancel as well. I don't see anything wrong with requesting multiple rewards. They offer them so why not take them up on whatever ones you want?

has anyone seen any of the trilegiant offers up and working on a rewards site lately? Every rewards site that I am a member of either doesn't have them or has them listed but with dead links.

Received four checks from Great Fun today for a total of $50 (two gas rebates, one $10 purchase rebate, and one $20 purchase rebate). They must send them all out at certan times of the month or something. It was a nice surprise!

if you care .....
you might want to read some of the complaints against Trilegiant (and there are tons), as well as the lawsuits filed against them ..... for being deceptive ...

EEK!

http://www.consumeraffairs.com/sc...aints.html

http://groups.msn.com/USBankCompl...giant.msnw

and this from Wikipedia:

According to the Better Business Bureau hundreds of issues have been reported by consumers for: deceptive selling practices, unauthorized charges to consumers' credit cards, and failure to respond or resolve issues.
TLG made a Settlement Agreement with the Office of the Attorney General of Florida On March 7, 2005. Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act, Chapter 501, Part II, Florida Statutes (“FDUTPA”).
In July 2005, the Attorney's General of CT, CA and ME brought a lawsuit against TLG/Affinion for allegedly deceiving consumers into enrolling in its clubs.
In December 2006 Trilegiant/Affinion agreed to pay over $8 million dollars to 17 states and their residents to settle allegations they tricked residents into paying for its programs.
Mad Mad Mad



I don't know about the rest of you, but when I read this stuff I IMMEDIATELY withdrew from their Travelers Advantage program .....

Up to you, of course ... shake head

I think most of those people just forgot to cancel and they just went about things the wrong way. I have NEVER been charged after I canceled and NEVER had any problems getting a refund for canceling late. Their services can be useful and most don't cost that much. It's just a matter of if you would actually use it or not.

as I said, everyone can make their own decision .... Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)
there have been some "happy campers" in this thread, but I felt that people should know something about the history of Trilegiant - and make an informed decision considering both sides ....
The fact that Trilegiant agreed to pay 8 million dollars (and this was only 4 months ago) to settle allegations that they had tricked customers tells me it's not the kind of company I want to deal with ...
we're not talking about a few people here, if you follow the links ...
imo some "deals" aren't worth it ...
for those who think this one IS, I wish you the best, really .... hug
peace out ...wave

whoops - forgot one thing ...
the thing that first got me to raise my eyebrows was that I could not find an email address for "Traveler's Advantage" ANYWHERE ...
what kind of company in this day and age doesn't have an email address?
(maybe more than I am aware of .....?)

i agree with xavior - i have made over $500 from free sign ups just from this cycle thanks to xavior - and have not paid out over $1 for the trial - i have done this for over a year and i have always been diligent to cancel on time - once i forgot and they refunded me anyways - i totally agree with xavior - the lawsuit is for people that forgot to cancel

------------
this is no different to shady rebate companies - their goal is that you forget to cancel, but still you can easily outsmart them

- xavior i have a few new links that will be emailed to me from ecustserv in a few days - $20 linens and things for complete home and everyday values -

- when will your bargain thread be ready?

I haven't had a whole lot of luck getting all of the promised gift cards, though I did receive the two Linens & Things and Exxon cards. However, I've been sending in rebates religiously (using receipts from Wal-Mart and Target for the cash back ones that aren't for gas) and so far I've gotten $145 in rebate checks. That's a pretty good savings, I'd say! Thanks OP!
