Frequently Asked Questions
Are there hidden fees?
NO. There are no sign up fees, switching costs, termination penalties. Only pay for what you choose with no hidden fees.
How long is a subscription?
You can subscribe to our Premium Service Plan for 1 month or 12 months, and to our VIP Service plans for 3 months, 6 months or 12 months.
Subscription to the VIP Dietitian plan consists of 3 monthly payments and does not renew automatically at the end of the 3 months term. The VIP Personal Cook plan is sold as a package of two visits and is not a subscription.
Can I cancel at any time?
Yes! While we’d hate to see you go, you can cancel your PREMIUM subscription at any time right from the My Profile page: Simply scroll down to ‘My subscription’ and click on ‘Cancel my subscription (stop recurring payments)’. This will be effective immediately and no further charges will be made to your credit card.
For VIP subscriptions, cancellation is possible until you make your appointment for the Initial Assessment with the Dietitian or Kinesiologist. Once you make this appointment, you agree to pay for the entire duration of the subscription that you purchased.
Can i change my meal plan during my subscription?
Yes! You can change as often as you want for anyone of our Lifestyle meal plans, at no charge. And of course you can go back to your Premium meal plan whenever you wish. To do so, go to My Profile and select the meal plan type that you want, under ‘Customize my Meal Plan’.
You can also change for another Premium meal plan, also at no charge, by asking us through the Contact form. The reason for our doing this change on your behalf is to protect you. Indeed, since many of the meal plans relate to a medical condition, we want to make sure that there are no contraindications for you.
Can I change my service plan during my subscription?
Yes! You can upgrade from Premium to VIP at any time. To do so, call us toll-free at 1-877-570-1035 or 514-564-0971 (Montreal area). On the other hand, downgrading from VIP to PREMIUM before the end of your subscription is not possible.
How does billing work?
For the Premium Service Plan, when you choose to be billed on a monthly basis, you will be charged the indicated amount immediately. You will continue to be charged the same amount on the same day each month, until you cancel your subscription. Once you cancel, you will not be billed again, i.e. there are no commitments/contracts. Yearly subscriptions work the same way, except that you are billed in advance for the full year, and re-billed on the same day the following year, unless you cancel prior to the next billing date. Again, once you cancel, you will not be billed again, i.e. there are no commitments/contracts.
For the VIP Service Plans, billing is always done on a monthly basis, whatever the subscription duration. You will be charged the indicated amount immediately. You will continue to be charged the same amount on the same day each month, for the term of your subscription.
Which payment options are available?
We offer different payment options:
- Pay here on the website (secured) with a credit card
- Pay by phone with a credit card, by calling us toll-free at 1-877-570-1035 or 514-564-0971 (Montreal area)
- Pay by mail by sending us a cheque, to the order of Sukha Technologies Inc., to:
3470 Stanley, bureau 1605
Montreal, Qc, H3A 1R9
Is it safe to pay by credit card?
Absolutely. Credit card payments are totally secure, made by our California-based payment processor ‘Stripe’, through encrypted communication (https) and independently certified by Godaddy.com, as registrar.
We never have access to your credit card number, which is sent directly to Stripe, for the sole purpose of effecting the transaction. There is therefore no trace whatsoever of your credit card information in our database. Since we started accepting credit card payments in August 2010, there has not been a single payment security issue.
Is there a money-back guarantee?
Yes. If you’re not fully satisfied, contact us within 7 days of purchase and we will refund your payment. To do so, you need to sign in first and then select ‘Others’ in the Contact form. This guarantee does not apply to the Carb-Loading Meal Plan under the PREMIUM Plan. For the VIP Personal Dietitian Plan, this guarantee stops from the moment you send us back your Medical Questionnaire. Check our Refund Policy for more info.
Is my personal information secure and private?
Do you receive money from supermarkets?
No, we do not receive any compensation from supermarkets to publish their specials. We chose to put ourselves entirely on the consumer side, not the supermarkets’. Our service does much more than simply bring you flyer specials: It puts the supermarkets in competition by calculating the most economical grocery basket for each one of our subscribers. Thanks to our algorithm, an average family saves $CA 150.00/month, by paying only $CA4.95/month for our PLUS service or $CA9.95/month for our PREMIUM service.
By the way, we are not paid by the food industry nor subsidized by public funds. Our revenue comes mainly from subscription fees, and advertisements posted on the site, which allows us to keep our independence and to provide the best possible service to our subscribers.
Other sites display flyer specials for free. So why opt for SOSCuisine?
It’s true, some sites do display flyer specials. But in reality, these sites simply upload soft copies of flyer specials, with the same drawbacks: difficulty comparing articles together (as they are offered in different formats), time lost in leafing through all the specials, impossibility of knowing whether the specials are really proposing good prices or not, etc. SOSCuisine launched SOS PLUS to maximize your savings, by avoiding all the drawbacks of conventional flyers! Let’s look at it in detail.
We start off by conducting a comprehensive analysis of flyer specials. We:
- calculate prices on a uniform basis for proper comparison
- identify the best price of the week for each item, among all banners
- identify GENUINE specials, i.e., those which offer really great prices
As we’ve been following the price trends of around 1,000 products for over eight years now, we are able to identify really great specials. In the flyer comparison table we publish on our site for our members, we identify these specials with icons. A thumbs up means the price is right, i.e. rare. Two thumbs up means that the price is really great, i.e., very unusual and therefore not to be missed and stocking up on the product is advisable. For example, for any given week in Ontario, we could display 730 specials, of which 242 would be really cost-effective!
We follow 60 banners in Canada, including 12 in Ontario. Besides the prices of the major chains, we are also familiar with the specials of small chains such as Farm Boy in Ottawa. What’s more, our company has absolutely no links to the food industry or to any other economic group whatsoever. We have chosen to position ourselves clearly on the side of the consumers, by providing unbiased and high value information, in order to help them eat healthily while at the same time making significant savings.
SOS PLUS is also designed to simplify planning. Our site memorizes YOUR favourite grocery stores and depending on weekly specials, proposes recipes that use a maximum of ingredients that are on specials in your supermarkets! That’s not all… our Flyer Specials table is directly linked to your grocery list. With a few clicks, your grocery list is full of the best deals of the week and ready to be printed or sent to your phone!
Our subscribers say that they save an average of $CA150/month thanks to SOS PLUS! So, the subscription of $CA4.95/month is well worth it!
