I would like to comment on the use of so-called free trial products. I have been to some websites where they use fake timers or tell you you are one of the "limited" or "few" customers that is eligible for their "free" trial. When you return to the site, the number of offers remaining is always the same. Wu-Yi green tea is one of the ones that comes to mind, also the resveratrol. They claim "as seen on Oprah", etc. You have to be very careful when dealing with these companies or your credit card ends up being charged for a full supply, often on a recurring monthly basis.
