The website offers a six-monthly subscription, which costs €75 upfront – or €150 after a year.
Otherwise, it costs €51 for a three-monthly subscription (€204 a year) or €22.99 a month for a monthly subscription (€275.88 a year).
Again, these subscriptions are automatically renewed – unless you cancel your membership at least two working days before your subscription is due to end.
"Before consumers sign up and pay for any contract they should check the terms and conditions and see if it is a contract with an automatic rolling period – which means the subscription will be automatically renewed to a new minimum term unless the consumer requests their subscription is cancelled," said a spokeswoman for the consumer watchdog, the National Consumer Agency (NCA).
For example, with anotherfriend.com, if you sign up for a three-day trial of the site's premium membership, €24.95 will be automatically charged to your credit or debit card at the end of the third day of your trial and at the end of every month after that – until you cancel.
