“APPALLING CUSTOMER SERVICE”

published 04/08/2004

Good introductory deal

Bad customer service means it’s simply not worth t...

I’m usually extremely suspicious of book clubs or other companies that essentially offer the same service. In a world where there’s no such thing as a free lunch, you always wonder how they can get away with offering an amazing sounding joining deal, with (supposedly) no commitment to stay a...

get cheap books on your first order

nothing different from any other club

E-TSP is a book club based on the internet. I originally joined e-TSP because they have a great sign up offer. When I joined I got three books for 1p, which is a bargain!! I did have some reservations when signing up after hearing stories from people about mail order book clubs in general. I had...

“TSP - The Special Prices”

published 05/06/2002

3 books for £3

Editors choice, P + P

I joined TSP (The Softback Preview) back in the beginning of last year. I was quite shocked when I saw the deal. It was three books for £3! (no mention of the postage and packaging which is extra) That is something that is rare and very unusual these days, such a money saving offer. I then looked...

“I would not recomend them”

published 18/02/2002

cheap books, no comitements (suposedly)

poor service

All I ever seem to have is bad luck with a lot of online companies and I certainly would not recommend you register with these people. Not just because of the service I have received but also because they lied about no commitments when signing up to them. I saw a great offer and you got three...

Cheap introductory offer saving you lots of money

They wont let me leave, help me please

Back in October 2001, whilst trawling through another days useless emails. I stumbled across one that caught my eye “3 books for £3!” it said (Postage & Packaging EXTRA in very small, small print!) Now, I have never been much of a reader and mostly buy books to prop up wonky furniture. But this...

Good books, low costs, no commitment

None

I received a message from Mypoints in my mailbox the other day telling me that I would receive 10 points if I visited the TSP site and a further 500 points if I took advantage of their introductory offer and purchased 3 books. TSP stands for The Softback Preview and I have made purchases from...

No commitment to buy, no payment until receipt..

They make mistakes at times.

I have been a member of TSP (also known as The Softback Preview) for several years now. I joined sometime back in the mid 90s on an offer of 5 books for a £1 each with no further commitment ever. Although I've a few problems with TSP, they were soon sorted out. Before I was on the internet all...

None, that I am aware of yet.

The Softback Preview, claim that you can choose 3 books for only £3.00, plus P & P. What’s more is that there is NO COMMITMENT to purchase any more from them ever again! So what is the catch - after all there must be one - mustn’t there? You always end up paying for it somewhere along...

Well obviously we all keep our eyes open for the best offers available to us, no matter what we are seeking. I know I am sometimes drawn to banners on websites advertising wonderful offers - sometimes I can't resist and I go have a look. More often than not there is always a catch to the offer...

TSP is a book club that has something slightly different comparing to others. You do not have the commitment that you would have when subscribing to any other book club. What commitment is it? Normally when you want to be a member of a certain book club you have to buy during the period of a year...

I’ve been a member of the “The Softback Preview” Book Club, (TSP) since Oct 2000, and this is my second membership with them… and I have no complaints. The usual Introductory offer is Three Books for £1 each Plus £3.99 postage/packing My Introductory offer purchase, this...

Incompetent staff. Charged me for books I never or...

What does TSP stand for? Well it can stand for Terrible and Shoddy Products or These Stupid People and a few others that I could think of which is unprintable here! Why do I hate them so much? Well, because they are run by a bunch of complete and utter morons who are out there to rip you off. As...

I joined the TSP (the software preview) book club at the beginning of the year after receiving an email from a website called Free Uk Stuff (where they let you know about free stuff and things going cheap). I was very dubious at the start - it claimed that you could choose 3 books for only £1...

convenient, low-cost.

not always reliable

I joined The Softback Preview just over two years ago. So I feel qualified to comment. After the initial offer, three books for £1 each or similar. TSP doesn't ask you to commit to buying any more books. This is true but you have to remember to reject the editor's choice from each magazine or you...
