A Very Expensive Cookbook!!!

This is a terrible company. I can attest to all the other one star reviews. It's hard to cancel. I'm just glad my payment information will be expired by next year so they won't be able to renew my membership. All you get is a new recipe for every day of the year. You can use a cookbook for that. Or Pinterest. Or All Recipes. Or any other recipe website--all free. eMeals is a big fat scam.

SCAM

Hi,
eMeals has NO option to cancel you subscription: In order to sign up for a trial period you have to provide your credit card information - promising NOT to be charged.
They provide ONLY a phone number which never been answered! Be aware: This site is actually SCAM!

Be carefu!

I tried emeals with their free trial with my wife to try and see if we could get some good recipes for clean eating. I tried the clean eating, lunch, breakfast, dessert, and special occasions. We didn't like the recipes so I tried to cancel. They said I had to call in and cancelled. I kept receiving emails and didn't think anything of it. Then many months later I thought I had better check on it. Turns out I had been charged $100. They had charged me for every single plan I had tried. It wasn't just for a month or the 3 month ones. They charged me for a whole year. I chatted with them to see what could be done. Turns out if you don't request a refund when you call they just cancel the next subscription so you are stuck with paying even though you called in to resolve the issue. Not impressed with the customer service. Seems like very crooked way to get people to pay for the subscriptions.

They Fraudulantly Charge Credit Cards.

I paid up front for my plan, but then they started charging monthly $10 a month. I thought it was a misunderstanding so I called them. They would not refund me on the overcharge but gave me 'credit' tacked on the end of my plan.

Then tonight they tried to push through a charge for about $60 - no idea why, they owe me for the overcharge still + I still have 6 months before my plan expires even without the extra credit I was given.

I was suspicious when I couldn't delete my credit card info from their system so I locked the card. Good thing I did or I would be out money right now and having to get Capital One involved.

Watch out for this company.

Can’t Get a Refund!!!

I, too, am a victim of the cancellation problem. I called three days prior to the cancellation deadline, was told I would see a refund on my credit card in 3 to 5 business days, then two weeks later I had to call to find out why I had not seen my refund. She apologized, and promised that I would see a refund in 3 to 5 business days. Today is the fifth business day, and still no refund. So I had to call again. Again, she apologized, and promised that I would see my refund in 1 or 2 business days. I blew my top, and pushed for a good reason why my refund request keeps “falling through the cracks”. If I don’t see my refund by business day number two, I will report this to the Better Business Bureau. I am livid.

Won't cancel. Ignores cancel request even and writing.

Last year I've tried it cancel within my trial period. They would not refund me the charge. They sent me a email stating they didn't receive my first email and I still have copies of all the emails to them. Now a year later I'm getting a $94 charge on my credit card from them.

BEWARE

When you call to cancel your renewal, they very sweetly try to sell you on some new plan they have etc etc... DON'T FALL FOR THIS. Because when you realize they have "sold you" and you call to cancel , they will tell you that you are outside of your cancellation window and you will be charged, and they will NOT give you a refund.

APP SHUTS DOWN EVERY SINGLE TIME!!!!

I'd like it a whole lothing more if the app didn't shut down every time I use it. I'm at the store for an extra hour trying to get my list as I wait for the app to finally open up long enough to write it down before it closes again. I let them know and was told they would get back to me, they didn't. Then my supscribtion was due to renew and I tried to tell them again why I won't be renewing. They ended up saying it was my phone, Android to be exact. That's all they had to say. I would have renewed had they tried to actually help
Total bummer.
