You should definitely sign up for text notices on your cell phone. I have
Capital one text me any time a charge over a certain amount goes thru.
You can set any amount you choose as the threshold for the auto text.

It's not just Reserve America that they are affiliated with. They make reservations for sporting events and a host of other things.
Yup! Completely aggravating and if I remember right, the last time this came up we figured out that it depends on what state you are in as to what "scam" they try to peddle off!

But I could be wrong on that, it has happened before I am told

I don't remember seeing this when using the site, I wonder if it has something to do with ad blocking whether you see it or not.

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

We are all so electronically connected these days you have to stay on top of all your credit card receipts. I do't use the service in question, but have gotten charges I never made. I go thru my CC bills line by line each month and use PayPal when I can. Thanks for the heads up TooTall

I am going to do that today with my threshold as $0, ha. Thanks for the tip. Great tip.

I'm thinking you might have saved some peoples' aggravation and gnashing of teeth which may be worth more than $64.95. Thx.

I got snagged by these scumbags a few years ago. There was a box at the very bottom of the page that was checked by default. This had the effect of signing you up for their "benefits" unless you removed the check mark. The check mark was well below the payment button. I really despise this company and its practices.

I would suggest that anyone that gets pegged by any additional charges when using Reserve America contact the state parks department for the state where the reservations were made. That state's attorney general's office should also be notified of Active/Reserve America's practice. I know a few years back New York State residents had some problems with RA and a whole bunch of heat was brought on them by various state politicians which forced some changes, I believe, in their way of doing business on behalf of NYS Parks. This was before I became a camper so my direct knowledge is a bit sketchy.

I do watch out for the magazine subscription check box every time I use Reserve America too. My B.I.L. got nailed on this trick couple years back.
