Consumers often complain about signing up for one thing, but later realizing that it was another thing. Oftentimes, when this happens, a consumer feels like they were lead on through false pretenses, lied to, and betrayed. Ultimately, it leads to an unsatisfied customer trying to opt out of the current contract in order to change vendors. There are a number of ways that this type of instance could happen, and here are a few ways that this can happen to you if you are not careful.
The most typical way to get those extra costs is through the provision that was looked over during the initial signing of the contract. One would expect the rates to stay the same, even during inflation periods, but the rates can increase without the inflation via the provision. Take a look at the example below, which does occur in real life:
The contract stipulates a 12% increase per year after the 1st year. When you sign up for a 12% increase from your current rates at $100 for 10,000 printed pages, it would be $157 in year 5. Year 5 alone would estimate to roughly $700 extra for that year.
