    A different Snuggie Scam - Great Fun

    I bought a snuggie last year as a Christmas gift. Luckily I was able to sweet talk my way into only buy the number that I wanted.

    Just recently I've received a check from Snuggie for $8.25, it looks just like a rebate check. The only problem is that if you look at the find print by cashing the check you're signed up for a service called "Great Fun" which is free the first month but then charges you a $149.99 annual fee!! It also, it says in the fine print that they will charge the credit card you have on file with snuggie!

    I called the company to remove my address and they confirmed that the Snuggie company actually gives them your credit card information if you cash the check.

    I called the snuggie company to remove my information (found the number to talk to someone after a long search 800-566-2888). They are able to remove your name and credit card information.

    Notifying the BBB, I can just picture my grandmother falling for this.

    Re: A different Snuggie Scam - Great Fun

    I called the number in the post above, and they refunded me $10 for the trouble. If everyone calls this in, it will make it NOT worth their while to participate in these ad scams. This is horrifying!
    I also filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.
