Great Expectations Informative - Great Expectations Membership Costs Revealed
I think you'll find this review pretty revealing into the Great Expectations dating service.
Great Expectations requires individuals to come in for an interview and later for a personal video. I called their company because I was interested and found their staff to be cordial but they would not reveal the cost of the service over the phone. Instead they asked me first to come in for an interview. During my interview their service seemed to be decent, but when they finally revealed the costs, I was surprised. Here goes:
$7000 - 15 month membership
$8000 - 3 year membership
$8500 - Unlimited membership until you find someone
-$2000 - If you opt out of national match making (only look at matches in your city)
-$1000 - ONLY if you sign the contract on your interview date
50% off - For a 7 month trial membership only valid on that date
CHEAPEST PLANS YOU CAN GET (with discounts)
$4000 - 15 month membership (only good on interview date)
$2000 - 7 month membership (only good on interview date)
Furthermore, based on my questions I learned that they get 50 to 100 new members per month. Also, 2 of their members per month gets married (one man, one woman). Based on statistics that is between a 2% and 4% success rate (this site was meant for serious dating). That means at best you have a 1 in 25 chance of finding someone throughout your membership. All that for a few thousand dollars?
If you are wealthy, this service may be good for you. But most people probably cannot afford this site. So how do they get their membership? Through pushy and misleading tactics (they leave out information unless you ask). They put a lot of pressure on you to join. They are very good sales people. But my father taught me never to make a quick decision on a large sum of money. This saved me a few thousand dollars. When a company offers you to save you a thousand or more by joining today, it makes the decision process very difficult. Just be careful. Know what you are getting yourselves into.
