Sensa says you get 30 days of their product free. It's not true. They send you the product, then bill you for it at the end of 30 days-kind of like your utility bill. I don't know if Sensa works-I sent it back unopened.

We ordered Sensa. we suddenly found $90.00 missing from our account, thereby costing us the initial amount, plus transfer fees, plus an overdraft fee.
When I contacted them I was told it had been prominently stated in there literature It wasn't. I was only able to get $45.00 back on that $90.00+ I had been charged.
