Subscribed to Nutrisystem and things were going okay and then I was diagnosed with Valley Fever. I had to cancel to pay for medical bills and when I told them that they did not care and charged me a $99 cancellation fee.

I have explained to them on three separate occasions and they honestly could care less. At one point I actually asked the rep, "do you really even care about this" and no joke she said "nope!". You are just a $ to them. And don't even try to chat with them online.

The reps are on a script and can't actually help anything. I have told my story to everyone at my work, as well as my Mom's book club and so far have convinced 7 people not to use them. I will continue to convince as many people as possible not to get sucked into the Nutrisystem trap. They don't have a heart and only truly care about it's stock price.


Product or Service Mentioned: Nutrisystem Customer Care.

Reason of review: Poor customer service.

Monetary Loss: $99.

Preferred solution: Full refund.

I didn't like: Inability to actually act like humans.

I am on Nutri-System I have cancelled it and finishing off the food that I have.

Yes it does work but the food tastes nasty.

You will either lose weight due to spending 1/2 the evening in the restroom or throwing it out in the trash.

I have no idea how some people like this food. As another poster stated you might as well buy Lean Cuisines etc.

I can lose 1-2 lbs a week by myself without spending a fortune on TV diet dinners.

Julia, thank you for the comment. I noticed that Nutrisystem is trying to get you to now email them but I am here to tell you that it won't matter.

They don't care you, me or anyone else.

If you do send an email you will get an automated response 3 days later that won't allow you to even respond to it. Just an FYI.

The point is I have. I spoke on the phone 3 times with awful reps, chatted online with reps that tell me they literally aren't allowed to do anything and emailed already with no response.

It's beyond pathetic.

I will just have to continue to preach how poor of a company you are. Should have come here first.

So I finally got a response from Nutrisystem and it's exactly what I expected. An automated response telling me to contact other numbers if there is a problem.

It basically went like this:

Dear (fill in the blank)

Haha, we got you too! Thanks for the additional $99 and we're sorry if it effects your life negatively but we have stockholders to appease so any little amount of money helps. Sorry, but not sorry.

You apparently didn't read or understand what you were signing up for and agreed to a cancellation fee if you cancelled within a certain amount of time. They allow for no excuses, as is their right.

You could just ignore any bills for the cancellation fee, of course. All they will do is turn it over for collection, which you continue to ignore, but be aware your credit score may take a minor "hit." Personally, I would not pay them, but------

Thanks for the comment. I agree, I should have been more informed on what I was getting myself into and hopefully I can make people more aware of this before it happens to them as well.

You would think that there would be a little more compassion but not in this case.

Lesson learned I guess. Thanks again.
