Received a flyer inside box from Amazon. Vistaprint has very dodgy ratings and some consider it purely a scam (rubbish product, automatic enrollment at £10 per month without ability to stop payments/membership). Looks like they might even print fake checks having searched the forum for their name.

Beware! Paddy

PS am writing to Amazon...

I now have the reply from Amazon:

Quote:
Dear Customer,

Thank you for contacting Amazon.co.uk with your comments about the Vistaprint promotion. Although Vistaprint promotions are, from time to time, inserted in the packaging of Amazon.co.uk orders, Amazon.co.uk is not liable for these promotions or for any products or services offered by Vistaprint.

Because your question relates specifically to Vistaprint, and not to an Amazon.co.uk order, we will need to refer you to Vistaprint as they will be able to assist you with this question.

I was very unhappy with Amazon and told them so! I have now received this:
Quote:

Thank you for contacting us at Amazon.co.uk with your comments.

Firstly, please allow me to apologise any inconvenience caused with regards to the Vistaprint promotion. It is certainly not our intention for our customers to have anything but a pleasant experience at Amazon.co.uk.

Please note that I have brought all your comments to the attention of our appropriate department to look into.

For account privacy reasons, we can’t disclose the outcome of any investigation we perform. However, if after investigation we deem there is something wrong with the promotion, we'll take appropriate actions.


Maybe something will be done! Paddy

Vistaprint are a perfectly legitimate printing company, and they run frequent free/heavily discounted offers to get new business. I've used them a few times, they work exactly as described.

They do have an extra stage one you've gone past the payment confirmation stage to try to hook you into some stupid discount plan or something, and this may be what you're referring to, but vistaprint.com are just a printing company and there's no obligation to join any schemes.

There seem to be many complaints about the promotions Club offered at vistaprint. Some people claim they were signed up without their knowledge/consent. Many people seem to have experienced difficulties contacting vistaprint in order to stop the monthly payments. There seems to have been more than the usual number of problems/complaints although, as you say, some people have nothing at all to complain about.
