Ticket masters and Vista Print

A few months back my girl friend wanted to purchase some tickets for her sister and her to go to a concert but she needed to get them right away before they sold out. So I offered to purchase them since I had my card with me and just told her to pay me back the next day.

Lol no she didn't scam me. I got my money back from her no problem. But then all of a sudden I started receiving a 9.95 charge to my card with an account called monthly rewards. There was no way I could find out what the charge was or where it was coming from.

So I had to google the company name to find a contact number to question the charges. I know some of you reading this are saying I must of not checked off the button towards the end of the buy tickets right? The problem was there was nothing on the ticketmaster site that talked about a monthly rewards program. Besides if there was I wouldn't pay 9.95 for coupons.

So I called the number and voice my concern. They had no problem taking the charge off. What I found strange was that when I got my ticket confirmation from the tickets I purchase months ago it didn't give me an email telling me congratulations for subscribing to the monthly rewards program you know?

Never once I recieved any coupons to indicate I was subscribing to something I never opted in.

Anyway I heard from my other friends that Vista print is pulling the same scam like ticketmasters. If you do get tickets or buy stuff from visita make sure you check your statements. You dont want to be charge for something you did not buy.
