Just thought I would share this just in case anyone else falls foul. My wife was looking through her bank statements and noticed £10 per month being taken from her card from shopperdiscounts.com. She has never heard of the company and contacted them asking why they were taking £10 from her account every month. She received this reply:
"Thank you for contacting Shopper Discounts & Rewards.
Our records show that either yourself or someone in your household completed an online transaction with The Trainline. After your transaction, you were offered the opportunity to join the Shopper Discounts & Rewards programme with a £15 cash back voucher and a 30 day free trial. Immediately next to the offer, the Offer and Billing Details were displayed. By entering your name, address and credit or debit card details and then clicking on the 'yes' button to accept the offer, you authorised us to charge the monthly membership fee of £10 to the credit card or debit card that was provided, after your free trial period ended.
Shopper Discounts & Rewards is an online savings and discount programme that enables you to earn cash back rebates of up to 20% at over 700 online retailers. In addition, members can benefit from shopping guarantees and protections.
If you are satisfied you don't need to do anything, your benefits will automatically continue and you will be charged the monthly membership fee. If you do not wish to remain in the programme, simply call our free phone number 0800 731 9935 to cancel your membership, Monday-Friday 8am-8pm and Saturday 9am-4pm."
Basically, read the small print and tick the right box when using http://www.thetrainline.com
or they will pass your card details on to a 3rd party who will take money out of your bank account.
