i've read your info on dealday.com and was scammed by them as well. assuming my credit card information would only be used when i made a purchase on dealday, i filled out the form. since then they've billed by credit card on 2 occasions for $39.99. no where, no where, was it made clear that there was a membership fee.

I had a look at the site. I was very careful to look at every page and I read the Terms and Conditions. The forth from last paragraph of a lot of boilerplate leagalese was a section called 'Use of Site and DealTime Membership' which had the following:
This is a very predatory sales technique which asks for your credit card details without telling you upfront that it is about to charge you $100! - Nowhere else in the signup or information details is the $99.99 price of the service ever mentioned.
In addition, the site uses a lot of very high profile news sites (BBC, NYT, ABC etc) as testimonials and a lot of product logos, possibly without correct attribution/usage. I will be contacting them and informing them their names are being used in this way.
Any organization that does not make it CRYSTAL CLEAR how much the service is that they are offering is a SCAM in my book. It's obvious that this isn't an accident and the fact that they hide the price in the T&C and claim 'no refunds at any time' makes their site even scammier.
If anyone out there has been conned into signing up and can give me a screenshot of the Credit Card charge confirmation page, I'd be very grateful (send it to firstname.lastname@example.org).
