In late Feb I watched a infomercial re: Who Knew Books" which sounded quite interesting and was told the cost was to be $29.99 and the shipping charges would be waived for anyone ordering at that time.When I asked about sending the order to Canada I was told there would be no problem but I was not informed abount any charge other that the $29.99 plus any difference in the money between Canada and the USA.

Seeing that the Canadian money was at par with that of the US. I expected to be charged only the $29.99. The only time I became aware that my order was received was upon receiving my Master Card statement for March showing a charge of $62.13. I have not received the books (which I would have returned after being charged this outrageous amount) nor have I received anything else in reference to this.

I am more that pissed off.

(I see that you are showing a word count of my complaint and also a statement that you recommend a minimum 100 word count so I can go on and on for as long as I wish.I am surprised that you didn't recommend a maximum number instead of a minimum) I expect to see a complete refund to my Master Card account immediately.

Had an Experience with Who Knew Books?

I saw these books on HSN and ordered for 9.99 + shipping. $14.95 total. I really like them and hope to order more but only from HSN or some site were they can be returned for free.

Just watched the Infomercial. It says on screen to "ask about free shipping" next to price while the voice says to call in next 20 minutes to get free shipping. So how do you "Ask" if you are not talking to a live person?

I guess they charge shipping unless you "ask" them for free shipping.

That's a sneaky way for them to get extra money from you knowing a large percentage of buyers will not check their bills or forget to "ask".

I ordered my books at the end of July and as of today still did not have them!1-800-777-4043 will get you a LIVE customer service person on the phone!

I too Hated that there was no live person when I ordered from the infomercial and that it did not give me a Total price for everything!! I called today, because I had yet to recieve them. I found out they had my address wrong,my books were returned and my account credited the money back.

I loved and wanted the books so I re-ordered today on the phone with the number listed above and had an actual person take the order and give me all the info I required!I hope this helps everyone!!!

I found the Who Knew Books on www.asseenontv.com for anyone who wants the books but doesn't want to go through the WhoKnewBooks website. As of this morning they were $29.99 plus $7.99 s&h plus a $15 gift card. I don't know where the giftcard can be used.
