Try your best to read the Terms of Service with fine tooth comb when filling out offers that require you to use your credit card, and if it doesnt sound like something your interested in, dont do the offer.

i read the TOS. and they never say anything about charging your CC in advance for a trial offer, some r finding out the hard way, like i did. i think it is pretty crappy that a lot of them say in the TOS that they will charge your CC if you dont cancel after the trial is over. however most charge as soon as you put your CC # in which is BS.

I believe you can call your CC company and cancel it. Not sure.

Texans read the rules -- see you in 7. I am getting pretty tired of having to edit 15 posts a day because you can not read the rules, even though it is posted on every form and there is a note before you submit your post.

TRIAL OFFERS: If the plan that you select includes a Trial Offer (e.g., the "4 week No-Risk Trial"), this offer allows you to use our service without charge during the period of time specified in your trial, beginning from your commencement date, before incurring any responsibility to pay the usual service fee.

FOR THE MONTHLY SERVICE PLAN AND THE TERM PLAN, THE FIRST MONTH IS NOT A FREE MONTH AND SUCH MONTH IS BILLED TO YOU. TO AVOID THE SERVICE FEE FOR THE FIRST MONTH, YOU MUST CANCEL YOUR ACCOUNT WITHIN YOUR TRIAL PERIOD. TO AVOID THE SERVICE FEE GENERALLY FOR YOUR SERVICE PLAN, AS APPLICABLE, YOU MUST CANCEL YOUR STAMPS.COM ACCOUNT BEFORE THE END OF THE TRIAL PERIOD, AS DEFINED IN YOUR OFFER.

That's exactly why I will not do anything that asks for my CC number.   :-[

I've NEVER given out my cc#, but still have a $25.00 check coming.  And I'm working on my next $25.00.  You just gotta be very careful on what info you give.  There is one where they ask you for your cell phone #.  Your cellphone # will be charged!!!!  I never did it because I read the SMALL PRINT!!!!!  Hope this helps.   :)
