Not at all amazing

Anyone can tell you are not getting any free vouchers if you have to pay for them over two years.

Three Sowetan readers claimed they were hoodwinked into entering into contracts they otherwise would not have concluded.

These readers received a call from Amazing Vouchers, promising them free meals and hair treatment if they subscribed for R195 over 12 months.

But these readers were not able to access the services even though their accounts have been debited every month.

Queen Oliphant said Amazing Vouchers misled her into believing she can save on manicures, pedicures and receive driving lessons at a reasonable amount.

Oliphant was told she should just call their office for a booking and they in turn "will do the rest".

But when she wanted to have her hands manicured, she was sent from pillar to post.

Nthabiseng Melemela went to a reputable restaurant for a "free meal". But after helping herself to a sumptuous meal, she was asked to pay the bill. She argued that Amazing Vouchers would foot the bill to no avail.

She was then told she would have to wash the dishes as payment instead. What saved her the embarrassment was that she had money and paid her bill.

Josephine Mabizela has also been contributing R195, but cancelled the contract when she could not access the promised vouchers.

But Vicky van Dyke would not accept her cancellation, stating that she was contracted for two years.

Angela Marr, a customer care manager at Amazing Vouchers, is investigating these allegations.
