On October 10, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi announced that Florida, 47 other states, and the
District of Columbia reached an agreement with Affinion, Inc., Trilegiant Corp. and Webloyalty.com to
settle allegations that the companies enrolled consumers in buying clubs and then billed consumers’
credit cards without authorization. The $30 million settlement, which highlights the importance of
disclosures and the regulatory scrutiny faced by continuity marketing programs, requires the companies to
inform consumers that they can be enrolled in clubs if they accept certain offers, periodically remind
consumers that they are enrolled in the clubs, and make cancellation policies more generous.
