When I booked my hotel with Wyndham and got the offer to try Traveler Advantage program. I remember the guy that I spoke to on the phone said that it only costs me $1 and I will get $25 American Express cash back. I can cancel my membership any time, if I don't like it, I can cancel it after the first month, and get $25, "You spent $1 to get $25, you'll earn $24, no hurt to try" .... Today I called up and cancel the membership after sending my request to get the Amex $25 cash back and cash back for my hotel reservation in Oct. The guy that I spoke to on the phone to cancel my account, he said I won't receive my cash back if I cancel my membership. He said "you have to stay an active member in order to get that cash back. It takes 4-6 weeks to process that cash back mails I sent to them". 4 to 6 weeks? That means I will have to spend $16.xx for the 2nd month? So, it turned out that I don't spend $1 to get $25 like the guy who offered me from the beginning. Isn't that the scam or fraud? He just tried to hook me in get my $1 and hide a lot of small details ...

They also automatically added me in the Traveler Shopper membership and $1 charge for the 1st month trial too. This is a surprise for me, they didn't tell me this from the beginning. I also called to cancel it, got transferred to different department, talked to different guy, after the Traveler Advantage membership cancellation. This guy apologized and tried to get me to stay and everything. He talked a lot even after I told him I can't trust the service anymore. I had to cut him off and tell him, i am tired with all these untrustworthy business, just cancel my membership and this is my lesson. I don't want to deal with these thing no more ...

They really can make money even it's just $1. Don't know how long their business can last if they keep trying to get little little $1 like this with really untrustworthy way of doing business.

I am a Travelers Advantage Member and also joined under the trial membership for $1.00 with the incentive being that I would get $50.00 back for my airlines reservations that were booked (this is where the offer came in).I did in fact receive 2 - $50 cash back rewards as I had 2 separate reservations.

I did cancel within the 30-days. I also rejoined due to they really have some awesome savings (I do pay $16.95/month for membership). I travel alot and also will be receiving 5% cashback for my airline tickets purchased in November and also December; also I get up to $50 back for luggage fees paid as well.

I did see that the airline was cheaper booking directly with them.

T.A.put me on hold when I made both reservations to verify the price I stated and they matched the airlines plus I am still eligible for the 5% cash back rebate.

So, for me, it has not been a scam at all.

we also took advantage of the "savings" and tried booking a room thru T.A.and was given a qoute of 125 a nite at hotel which my n~laws recently stayed at and only paid 88 a night.

So I called T.A. back and asked why it was more going thru them and they couldn't give me a straight answer of to why and that maybe I should just go ahead and book it thru the hotel front desk, which I did and told the hotel about my experience with T.A. so they actually gave me an additional discount just for the trouble and only ended up paying 75 a night...

thanx for nothing T.A.my cancelation call was just made...

I also was approached, I listened and decided this was not for me and that was it. From all the comments above, I realize that one person listened, agreed it was ideal for him and is very happy. The others figured it was not for them but agreed to join so they could SCAM the company and now they are all upset !!!!!l

Grow up and try honesty, it works a lot better.

This is nothing but a SCAM. BEWARE. Even if they give you a cancellation number they keep charging your credit card under various names.
