One of the most important benefits of free weight loss pill offers is that it provides a person with hands-on practical experience with regards to its efficacy. This makes it easier for prospective customers to decide whether the weight loss pill offered to them for free is good enough for them to shell out their money for. Another benefit is for those customers who are deterred because of the high costs for the weight loss pills. They have an opportunity to determine if these weight loss pills will work for them during the free trial period.
However, there is a downside to these free weight loss pills offers. How can there be such thing as a downside to something that is offered free? There are some companies which use such offers to get credit card details from clients and then bill them beyond the customer's expectations. Along the same lines, there are companies which have 'subscription-based' billing models who bill people who use free weight loss pills offer without their knowledge of the billing models that these companies have for such offers.
In some cases of companies offering free weight loss pills with a 'subscription-type billing' caveat, the cancellation process is made so tedious that sometimes it is better to get your credit card cancelled rather than filling out their cancellation form. It's very easy to get in, but almost next to impossible to get out. By the time one realizes the mess they are in, it's already too late. Usually the cancellation is not online. Even they have an online cancellation facility, the site would hang up so very often that you would eventually have to give up.
In case of companies that have a call center cancellation process for their free weight loss pill offers, the problems are similar. The cancellation process is very time intensive and customer unfriendly.
Another down side is the cost escalation. While the companies making the free weight loss pills offers would make sure that you get a continuous supply of free pills during the offer duration and thereafter, you may well find that the costs of these pills are increased after only a couple of billing cycles; that is, after you have gotten used to them.
If you somehow manage to fill out an online cancellation requisition form (or alternatively take the call center cancellation route), the process for cancellation could be so drawn out and time consuming, that by the time it is complete and you are removed from the order delivery list, you frustratingly realize that you have paid for some 3-4 shipments. While reputable companies will be reasonable with you on this, there are lots and lots of others who would tell you in no uncertain terms that there is never any refund for any amount once you have been billed.
The free weight loss pills offer, if intelligently used, can be helpful. But before applying for the free offer, you need to be diligent in studying the offer. It is also important that you consult your physician before taking any weight loss pills - free or not. It is only after getting a clearance from your doctor should you try out these pills.
