Interflora. Beware of Their Website Scam with Shoppers Discount.Co.Uk

Being the perfect husband I bought flowers for my wife’s birthday in July last year.
 
I used Interflora as they have a strong brand record as an established and reputable company.
 
The last bit is now totally discredited.
 
When you make your purchase the site offers you a voucher to use next time worth a tenner, so I clicked on it.
 
What it fails to tell you is that by clicking on this link they are signing uou up to a company called Shoppers Discount as a member, with a charge of £8 per month.
 
I am pretty cagey when dealing with stuff on the internet and there is absolultley no way I would have deliberatley joined such a scheme.
 
I rang Interflora and was told it was all above board, but the guy said he could see why I was put out which was a strange response.
 
Normally when you join something on the internet, say cricket forums or lists to be updated on offers, you get an email at least once a month.
I haven’t received one single communication from them.
 
I wonder why? Possibly because I would realise and cancel?
 
But at the end of the day it’s my fault for not reading my credit card bill properly.
 
 
 
Looks like I’m not the only one…..
