Have you used the sleep aid known as Somnapure? Today we offer Somnapure reviews from our staff and readers.
After clicking on a Somnapure ad in an ad block, I was taken to a phony-looking informational site, healthheadlines.com, reviewing Somnapure. Clicking the Try A Sample Today link takes us to peaklife.com, the Somnapure promised land.
And yes you read the headline of this post right – the free trial of Somnapure may make you lose sleep. Not the product – the “free trial” itself. Once you’ve experienced the horror of affiliate “free trial” offers online, you’ll know how much of a headache they can cause. We’re almost at the three year mark here at Wafflesatnoon in our mantra of avoiding free trials, because some of the worst things in life are free when you’re talking about internet affiliate marketing. Consider:
• If you forget to cancel, they’ll hit you hard.
In the case of Somnapure, the PeakLife.com website states that you’ll be hit with a charge of about $74.98 18 days after ordering – which enrolls you in their “Easy Sleep” program with new shipments of Somnapure every month. That alone would keep me awake at night.
• Free trial offers are often a very short time frame.
In the case of Somnapure, you have 18 days from the time you hang up the phone to cancel. Many reviewers of this product and other affiliate “free trials” have complained that they’ve been charged for the monthly program even after calling.
• Canceling or Getting a Refund Requires a Frustrating Phone Call
When you call to cancel or request a refund, they may try to talk you out of canceling. They may give you a return number and you might still have to pay to ship it back. They may just give you a hard time. Why bother?
• Somnapure reviews: Mostly negative
Read the reviews – people are generally not happy with it and the return rate seems to be very high. There are some good sleep FDA-approved aids on the market, especially by prescription – many of which would be far less than $75 a month.
Affiliate marketing is rarely concerned if a product has any value or usefulness. They’re more concerned about saying whatever they can to get you to part with your money, and make it difficult for you to change your mind.
With the above in mind, do you think customers of Somnapure sleep better or worse at night?
