Welcome to the supplements industry where anything goes! And one of the things that ‘go’ is the notorious free trial hustle. Offering customers a free trial sample is a common customer baiting tactic that many companies adopt, and it works — big time!
Now, not all free trial offers are necessarily trying to rip you off, but if it is a ‘male enhancement’ supplement and it asks for your credit card details, then it is more likely than not to be a hoax! What do I have to lose except for a nominal shipping fee? — you might think. But, as you will see in a moment, you can lose a lot!
This review is about one of the latest ‘free trial’ offers from men looking for a natural sexual aid. It’s called PurpleRhino Male Enhancement Solution. You may have received an email ad or visited a website promoting this product.
Let’s first look at some of the facts about this supplement.
Manufacturer: BDJ Natural Supplements, LLC.
Claimed benefits: harder erections, longer lasting power, increased sexual confidence.
Ingredients: Ginkgo biloba, l-arginine, saw palmetto, muira puama, Asian red ginseng, horny goat weed.
The deal: For only $4.95 you can get a 30 day supply trial pack of Purple Rhino pills. Once you place your free trial order you will be automatically enrolled in an auto-shipment program until you cancel your subscription. Sounds fair? Well, let me point out some of the hidden tricks:
Their website says you get a 30 day supply trial, which suggests that you will have 30 days to evaluate the product and cancel the subscription before your account is charged again, right? Wrong! Below the huge ’30 day trial’ banner there is a note in very tiny font that says you will only have 14 days to request cancellation, otherwise your credit card will be automatically charged $89.99 for a new bottle (60 tablets) every month.
But even if you pay attention to the 14 day cancellation window, you may not notice that it starts counting from the day you place your order, not the day you receive the product. They say the package may take 2-4 business days to arrive, and possibly more! Some users received the package after about a week of ordering thinking they have 14 days to try the product, and then 7 days later an unexpected $89.99 charge shows up on their financial records. And once you learn about this unexpected early ‘refill’, they will not refund it, but they will happily stop further shipments! That’s how this company makes their buck.
Bottom line is, this company is clearly engaging in deceptive sales tactics, and if you search RipoffReport.com you will find many customer complaints about this ‘free trial’ scam.
My advice: avoid at any cost! There are many good supplements out there that are less expensive, more effective, and more trustworthy.
