1.0 out of 5 stars BUYER BEWARE! December 22, 2010
The product is nothing special and beware if you get the free 2-week trial they will charge you the minute the trial is up without any warning.
If you do use the free trial cancel the service right after you are done testing it.
Rule of thumb don't use "free" trials if you have to provide CC information.
Also BE CAREFUL if you send same card to more than one recipient the bottom part of the card will show the names of all the recipients.. kind of a CC instead of a BCC. Niiice smilebox, let's make recipients feel the card was personalized for each single one of them!! WTF!
I will never use smilebox again.

2.0 out of 5 stars WARNING!!! WARNING!!! March 23, 2011
I have signed up their trial and I did remember to cancel it before the trial ended but somehow my CC# is still in their system which cannot be deleted. So during the time I used the free account, the page that kept coming out asking to sign up for paid subsription when everytime I turned on Smilebox. One day I tried to skip that page and I accidentally punched the enter key once and registered it without even knowing it because their ordering process will not have a Order Review Page before confirming the order. But immediately next day I saw the confirmation email and I was charged immediately since my CC# is in their system. I know I am not able to get a refund if I cancel online, so I wanted to cancel thru the customer service, hoping to ask for refund for my case. But was unable to find any contact number... Then I found out that THEY DON'T HAVE A NUMBER TO CALL, even if you are a paid subscriber. And all the email I wrote just came back with all the Standard questions & answers which doesn't solve those unique cases.

REMEMBER don't sign up their trial because it will keep your CC# in their system. If you forgot to cancel the trial, stop renewing (NO renewal reminder) or like my case make a mistake punching the wrong key. You will be charged immediately without any chance of getting back any single cent!!!

Verified Purchase
Very disappointed in how this is advertised without any mention that it is only a 6 month subscription and a 1 year renewal is $39.95.
This is information you need to know in the description section and it was not there. I will probaly go to a "reputable dealer" next
time and buy a different product all together. I paid $13.44 for mine now it's $6.26 less than 2 weeks later don't like that either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff April 24, 2009
By Berta
I love this product I use it all the time not just for occasions.
I send Smilebox creation to everyone just to brighten up their day.
Simple and fun to use. You can turn some boring pictures into funny stuff.
I just finished a 12 day countdown to vacation.
I think it is well worth the 39.99 a year that is only 3.33 a month well worth it.
Have fun with yours.

1.0 out of 5 stars unfriendly company October 25, 2011
By mamaof2
The company that creates this program, refuses refunds. They do not allow you to review contract terms prior to annual renewal.

The program itself is limited. Printed pieces are only nice if you click to print when their graphics are still.

Way too much money for this program.

1.0 out of 5 stars Won't Communicate! December 17, 2012
I am over 70 and needed help with setting up my Christmas message with photos. I asked for help two times and all they said was read the help on the site. I think they have a great concept but not being able to talk to someone or E-mail their help is deplorable. They are hurting their image on the internet with not helping people navigate on their site.

If you are promoting a product stand behind it with assistance for your clients.

1.0 out of 5 stars AWEFUL Customer Service! May 31, 2011
By kathy
I did a trial subscribtion and canceled on day 14! They said it was day 15. I requested a refund and was denied. You cannot speak to anyone at ANYTIME! You end up email them with no hope of speaking to anyone. You cannot get help with applications.

Why pay for this product when it only sends out cards? Not worth even the $5.99. Seriously, one day by their records! Aweful!
