    If it is free then it should cost exactly nothing, no deposit not even one penny never mind 30 quid:eek:.

    The competiton "winners" have won nothing apart from the chance to wear some studio make-up

    Unless you count as a prize the chance to be subjected to a hard sell to buy some photographs and the often stressful and time consuming experience of trying to get back the deposit.

    I got accosted at Liverpool street station a few weeks back by a guy claiming to be from Elite studios. He said they were promoting this offer, same as reported here. £35 deposit you and a coupl of friends, book in and get a free make over and photoshoot and a photo to keep. he didn't menion what size photo and as I live in Norwich and only go there for work I didn't think much of it at the time. Just had a call from a woman from there saying the offer was still available, can we book you a provisional date etc. Then she asked me for the deposit to which I politely declined as I hadn't had chance to check them out online (expecting it to be a hard sell for the photos and concerned about giving them a deposit). She said oh the offer expires today, hmm yeah right..

    I don't think I'll bother.
  • I did exactly the same thing. Paid the deposit then tried to cancel. Finally got to speak to Ricky at Elite STudios who is a manager who authorised a refund for £60 of the £70 deposit.

    Sadly this was on 22nd August and still nothing has appeared...

    I can no longer get anyone to answer the phone or respond to emails.

    Not quite sure what to do anymore

    This is ridiculous!!!

    The 'positive experiences' are quite clearly (on the whole) by the them/people affiliated with the company in my opinion...most are by 'first-time posters' who obviously TRY to cover this up by posting first to say 'oooh i've won, i don't know whether to go along with it BLAH BLAH BLAH...' making out they have the same concerns, then their second and 'final' post on this forum miraculously praises the day/experience, although with little faults thrown in to make it more authentic!!

    AVOID AVOID AVOID!!!!!!!!!!

    My reponse to this forum is completely legitimate and I have no connection to Covergirl at all. You can find me on facebook - Sarah Louise James. I have 4 photographs that I purchased on the day. Add me as a friend to see them
