Did they take your money? I have heard about this before. I have ordered from them and check my statements regularly for the charge and have not seen one yet.

When I first started I got some free cards from Vistaprint. Afterwards, I got worried that they would start charging me monthly so I cancelled my card and got a new one. They are very shady.

I have never seen the charges on my account either. How are they listed on your statement ... as a charge from Vista Print, or under some other similier billing name?

I have no problems with Vista Print. I have never been charged more than what I purchased.

and VPREWARDSUS.COM 14.95

these are 2 itens that ya sgin up for when you get free cards from them...
this 14.95 X 2 is a monthly charge....

Now I have signed up for these types of things before on sites like Tickets.com (or something like that ... where you can buy movie theatre tickets online). They offer you cash back on purchases if you do sign up.

Lesson here is to NEVER click on links that offer these types of deals after you have made a purchase on someones site. It actually leads you to a sale on a different service. Kind of like the FREE ring tones things. Sign up ... get a free ring tone ... and then get charged a monthly charge on your cell phone bill for a premium service.

I think I know what you are talking about. At the end when you are finished purchasing your cards they offer you an additional 10% discount if you join the "program". I believe it's a club or something that entitles you to discounts for several other web sites and stores.

Or you could just go to staples and get a 1k for 21$, I got color ones with the nice White linen card stock for $42, everyone tells me they look awesome.

I've double checked my statements and haven't seen any of these charges but thanks for the heads-up! By the way, Mowemjeff, thx for the Staples quote; thats where I'm headed next.
