written by reader Very hard sell from Agora / Palm Beach

By Random, March 8, 2017

I recently signed up to Palm Beach Confidential (which does actually seem quite good). Had a phone call today from an Agora salesman who explained that ”by mistake” they had signed me up for their top end Palm Beach Infinity package, which includes their other newsletters (more or less worthless to me). Wouldn’t take no for an answer, basically wanted me to pay double and forego my refund period for a ”lifetime” subscription to Infinity. Having been stung by ”lifetime” subscriptions before, I wasn’t keen. Disappointing incident and not what I’m used to from Agora. It seems like they are expecting the newsletter business to pretty much collapse over the next year, that they are trying to collect subscriptions up front like this.
