    just to share my experience.

    i bought a voucher from Groupon. its $28 for 4 slimming session worth $600. when i made an appt to go for that 1st session. they made me sign on a paper stating that i have to go thru a 2.5hrs consultation and that i have no menses. why do i have to go thru that 2.5hrs talk when im going for a redemption of my session? but i still sign on that thinking that it was their procedure. the lady pushed me for a $8K PACKAGE!
    i was shocked! and i keep saying no. i wont want so spend so much + i just had my first girl whom is only 5mths old. they hard selling lasted more than 2hours. i was damn tired and gave in. ( YES! v stupid me. ) i signed a 4K package.
    they really have all ways to make u sign. my stand wasnt firm. haiz. big regret.
    they made me split my 4k into 2 credit cards. however, after 1hour, i regret. i called them, but they have closed. so i sms the consultant that i wanted to cancel the whole thing. she say tml ( which is today ) we talk. so i went down to talk.
    this time, of coz im firm. she still tried to push me the package.
    then she say ok, i will have to write in to them and their lawyer would contact me!
    i was wondering, why do i even have to talk to their lawyer?
    can someone advise on this?
    Do i have to talk to their lawyer?
    I understand that under Singapore Consumer Rights, we can cancel any form of contracts within 5 days from the sale date. able to advise how to go about on this?
    i do not want to lose 4k and i have no mood to go for the whole package....

    =(

    I think maybe they are just frightening you? Anyway did you read properly before signing anything? Usually they wont give refund one. my friend also got cheated by a beauty centre once. She also purchase a coupon from Groupon and then went down there for trial session but then the trial session was nothing described in the web. I guess we have to be very careful with this kind of thing. If you really dont want the package, maybe you can go CASE and seek advise?

    For me, i will usually go this kind of beauty centre through friend's or family's recommendation.

    haiz. i just called CASE and checked. they say slimming package DO NOT HAVE cooling period.
    only SPA n massage packages then have. i dont see why they seggregate till like that. it should be all the same standard mar. tsk. then they say if their lawyer rep them, then i will need to speak to their lawyer le!

    HAIZ X10000000000000000!

    if only after speaking with the lawyer all that, till i cannot handle then ask CASE to help. CASE ask me to negotiate with London Wt Mgt. where will have rooms for nego for such thing. they are out to Chop us de mar.

    BIG REGRET!

    haiz! i think the consultant can help abit de. how much was ur package?
    i stupidly signed a $4k package! what i know is they can reduce to cheaper package de.
    coz i spoke to my consultant, she was really good la. i told her my husband is v unhappy and i dont want this package to affect my relationship. =X
    then she say, she can only help to speak to the co, to reduce to half of the package. so i pay $2k for half of the signed package. *at least i take $2k back*
    but now, i try my luck to see if can get back all anot. else, will talk to the consultant to see how much can she reduce to. pray hard.

    That's why i'm a big advocate of TRA. Works like a charm at only half the pricing.

    Went to slimming salon before. My body cannot take it after the second session, vomit, diarrhea and dizzy. But no refund was allowed.

    Later converted to massage, super expensive $200 per session, cannot negotiate, told me it's their standard pricing. Coz it's a transfer, take it or leave it!!! Worst is, on the last session, told them i'm not continuing, the masseur purposely pressed hard at my spine neck area, for the next week of so, i couldn't even move my neck..

    super fuming...swear i never will step in that store ever again..

    din't take any action then..

    now i am very wary about the last few sessions of my facial, massage package. The last few times, I'll try to stall time for renewing package, not telling them my decision until the last session..
