Do NOT Subscribe to FLOBIKES!

by editors on October 2, 2020

Flobikes is advertising itself as the best way to watch the Giro d’ Italia in the USA. Only $12.50 a month, they say. Cancel anytime, they say. What they don’t say is that they will immediately charge your credit card for $150 for a year subscription, and when you try to cancel your subscription, they won’t give you your money back. They keep your money and say they won’t charge you for the upcoming year. Here’s how they word it on their FAQ:

When you cancel your subscription, you will retain Pro access until the end of your billing period. During that time you will continue to have access to the entire FloSports network on the web and through our mobile and TV apps across 25+ sports. To see when your subscription will end, click Manage on the subscription page in account settings.

In other words, they appear to allow monthly subscriptions at $12.50 a month and infer that you can unsubscibe anytime, when in reality you’re paying $150 immediately and not getting any of it back no matter when you decide to cancel. It is a classic bait and switch and while nothing on the site is technically incorrect they do their best to hide what they are doing at every single page of their website.

Be warned. If you want to watch Flobikes be ready to pay $150 immediately. If not, DO NOT DO IT!
