DOVER, DELAWARE -- When I agreed to pay Gevalia by credit card to accept their offer of a FREE Stainless Steel Coffeemaker I was curious about a link on their site to ShopperDiscountsandRewards.com. I went to this other site to check it out. When I considered enrolling for their service, I was unaware of the wording in their "Offer and Billing Details", which I apparently agreed to, that allowed them to bill me using the "secure" credit card info I had given ONLY to Gevalia. I have since been credited for any billing charges by that company but the point remains, Gevalia gave them my credit card info under less than above-board means.
I believe this practice should be stopped. I also believe that maybe many more consumers out there who have fallen prey to this type of marketing who do not bother to complain and, therefore, are out their money. I believe this practice is WRONG! I did not want my credit card info to this other company. I would like Gevalia to explain where I gave THEM permission to pass this info on.
