So anyhoo, I immediately e-mailed them back saying that the bill didn't reflect the discount either. And waited for a response. And waited. And you know, the bill says if I don't pay by Feb 12, they'll tack on $4 to the already inflated bill. So I've e-mailed them yet again. I figure I'll get no response again, so I'll pay their damn bill and then quit their club.
They don't realize what a goldmine they could have had in me. I had 11 books already in my WishList with more to follow (cuz I am a book addict). But now I'll have to buy them from someone who actually plays straight with me. (I've printed off the list of titles so I can look for them in other places.)
So the moral is, if you receive a flyer from Scientific American Book Club, chuck it in the bin where it belongs!
The second moral is, don't let a book addict join a book club, ever! I mean, you wouldn't let an alcoholic join the Wine of the Month club, would you????
