You may receive a surprise in the mail, or see an advert online offering a free pack of diet patches if you just give some details of where to send it. It seems like a great idea to get a free trial pack of a diet patch. You can see if it agrees with your body and if it works before you buy.
Unfortunately very few free trials are out there and the ones that are are nothing more than a scam to get your card/bank details and register you for a re-bill every month with higher and higher charges being billed to your account.
How free trials work
“Get a free trial, just pay for P&P”: sound familiar? If so it can seem like a good deal, especially when postage is very little. So you hand over your billing details to pay for shipping to your door. This is the key point in the re-bill cycle, getting your billing details.
There will usually be small print, or terms and conditions to agree to which state that you are going to be billed every month for the full price of the patches. And that price is usually very inflated and high compared to one time buying of a legitimate patch. These unscrupulous retailers bank on the fact that most people don't read T&Cs, simply scrolling past and blindly clicking “accept”.
Unfortunately, in some cases there is no warning, no terms to accept and an outright scam.
Some free trials of this nature are total cons as they don't send the promised product out to you at all, instead pocketing the small amount you paid for shipping. It may seem unlikely given the small charge, but if they con enough people it becomes worth thousands to them.
How not to get scammed
You can tell by the tone of this article that we really don't recommend free trials of weight loss patches. We don't want you to get conned and lose your money. That's why we recommend buying a patch that offers a money back guarantee instead. That way, if it doesn't suit you you can reclaim some or all of the money you have paid.
Best diet patch to buy
We have looked at probably every weight loss patch available to buy online and in stores, and came to the conclusion that the Slim Diet Patch is the number one patch available to buy because:
- It has a 100% satisfaction guarantee
- You can buy just one pack or get huge discounts on multiple packs
- There is no re-bill scam: you are in control
- It is really effective at causing safe weight loss
