I did end up receiving my free issue, a week after I was charged. Just FYI.

Re: motherhood maternity scam?

I was a monager at motherhood for years. I stopped several years ago but we had this "promotion" while I was there too. They are SUPPOSED to tell you that you will be sent an invoice after your free issue and that if you pay with a cc / debit card that it will automatically be charged if you dont cancel within 30 days. if you pay with cash you will be sent a subscription offer.

That is illegal and can get them into SERIOUS trouble. I would call the store manager or district manager if I were you.

without a doubt they sold their lists. they do it all the time.

Re: motherhood maternity scam?

Want to hear something weird?! The first time my husband and I went to Motherhood store, he used his credit card to charge a band I bought and the lady said that we had been in the store before, b/c his name was in the system. ODD b/c we've never even been in that store!!! Idk what to make of it. Just thought I'd share.

Could it have been someone with the same name?

Lol, that happened to me too! I think my mom gave them my name because she went and bought some tummy butter and things to give me.

Re: motherhood maternity scam?

This happened to me last year! I was so upset. I called the Parenting magazine for a refund and they never gave it to me and I hassled them. Parents magazine did give me the refund though. I will never do that again.

Re: motherhood maternity scam?

dredging up this post because this just happened to me! This post popped up on Google bc I was searching. I just noticed a charge on my debit card from Parenting for $20... after googling, yeah, I just bought something from Motherhood a few weeks ago. Except... the cashier didn't tell me ANYTHING about this, and I didn't get a free magazine or anything. I am BEYOND livid right now, and plan on making a visit tomorrow morning!!

Me too.
