Positive billing practices review
The Rosetta Stone program is an excellent program, but I came specifically to speak to their billing practices. I had Rosetta Stone for French a couple years ago. It was set to renew today. I’ve received a couple of emails in the last 6 weeks or so telling me they were going to renew my account and giving me steps on how to cancel my subscription if I didn’t want it to renew. I also got an email about early renewal. I decided to do an early renewal because I wanted to learn Spanish. I made the mistake of thinking I could just renew and change to Spanish, but it translated in the system to adding Spanish in addition to my French, so today I got a notice email from Rosetta Stone that my French subscription had renewed for $149. Dang, not what I meant to happen. However, in the email, they again gave me the option to cancel within 30 days if I didn’t want it for a full refund. I called, told them what happened, and they immediately processed the cancellation and a refund. No red tape. I got a confirmation number from the customer service rep, then a follow up email from her with my confirmation of cancellation. Then another email from Rosetta Stone confirming my cancellation and refund. So many subscription based businesses just try to slide that renewal in without any notice and then make it nearly impossible to cancel. It was nice to have a fairly easy and up front experience.
The app isn't bad. Their billing is horrible.
You can download the app for free, and even do a lesson. Then it asks you to sign up for a subscription. If you wait a day or so, you get an email with a special offer of $5.99/month. Turns out though, it's not $5.99 a month, it's $147, paid all at once, which gets you a subscription for 24 months. Yes, that comes out to $5.99 a month if you don't understand finance, but it's a lot different if you don't want to pony up that much all at once.
Worse, after the term is up, they'll automatically re-subscribe you at their full price, no discount.
I hate this underhanded method of taking money from anyone who's not paying attention, and a bunch of people are going to pay a LOT of money for something they don't want. It's close to thievery, and it makes Rosetta Stone nearly dishonest.
EDIT: After using this for a couple of weeks, I still think it's pretty good at teaching language. However, the speech module, where it listens to you and grades how well you say things, is completely useless. It doesn't understand you at all, no matter how clearly you say it, and no matter how low you set the bar. I had to turn off the Mic to be able to get through those chapters. The program complained that my Mic was bad, but it works just fine on audio notes and FaceTime, so it's not my Mic.
We appreciate the feedback and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused. Please send us a feedback email via in-app settings to follow up with you regarding the speech issues. Open Rosetta Stone > tap the Menu > Settings > Feedback.
