Then I got a second charge on my credit card, and another shipment I hadn't ordered. I specifically remember choosing no membership when I ordered, but apparently that means nothing because there's something in the terms and conditions about continuing shipments. I found out I did have a profile and a membership after all, and attempted to call to cancel it. I was put on hold for a long, LONG time, then transferred multiple times to people who would not answer or numbers that didn't exist. I decided to try the live chat on their website instead. When I told them I wanted to cancel, they proceeded to ask me why multiple times, and for all the reasons I gave them (it made my skin dry, didn't really work, my acne was not that severe so I would be okay without any products for the week it would take me to find an alternative to proactiv) they kept trying to rebute and invalidate them. Finally, I got the representative to cancel my membership. Great. Everything's squared away now. Right?
Five months later, I get another charge on my credit card from Proactiv. I go to their website again, tell the rep that I had my membership cancelled, but was still getting charged. Have to explain it multiple times before she says she'll check for me. Fifteen minutes later she comes back saying that I did not cancel my membership.Read more ›
Be very wary of starting to do business with these people. Stopping is almost impossible. Here's why:
We ordered this for my son, and he used it for almost two years. The results were modest but positive. Then his dermatologist chose a more active and different course of treatment, and told him to stop using Proactive.
Naturally, we called to cancel the automatic shipments. They didn't stop. We called again. They didn't stop. We called again. They didn't stop. We tried to return the product and were told we were passed the "30 day return policy" and the product couldn't be returned (even though it has an almost infinite shelf life).
We stopped being charged only because the credit card expiration date passed. But the shipments continued for another month. Then the threats started.
Proactive (Guthy Renker, the company that sells everything imaginable via infomercials) started sending us collection letters. Since we had called them three times to cancel, and since we had paid for all but the final shipment, I ignored them. The letters stopped.
Then we started getting incredibly aggressive letters and automated, mystery telephone calls at all hours from their collection agency, SKO Brenner American (800 669-5208)insisting that we owed for the final shipment. I explained the situation and they didn't care to listen. Finally, in complete frustration, I paid for the final shipment just to make the calls stop.
This is not a customer-oriented company. Guthy-Renker isn't trustworthy in the least. Interestingly, on their website, they have "ten commandments for management.Read more ›

It's a rip off. Although there's no cure acne, you're wasting your money. I had to keep buying it because when I didn't the break out would return worse. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Gardenia York
