Cooking Light Diet Offer Rant

DuffyH | Jan 7, 201507:24 AM

Happy New Year!

This morning I woke up to an email from Cooking Light inviting me to sign up for the Cooking Light Diet. Okay, I'll bite.

I went to their website, where I found a delightful sample menu, and a fact-filled FAQ, but absolutely ZERO pricing information. I know it's not free, because the FAQ answers several questions about credit cards.

It seems the only way to find out the cost is to click on the "JOIN NOW" button. So not happening. I don't want to be bombarded with email begging me to come back and give it a try. I've been down that road before. I absolutely despise these practices. It seems that winning the trust and respect of their readers and subscribers is just not in their mission statement.

I've emailed their CS department to suggest they stop this practice and to request pricing info. How will they respond? Stay tuned.
