METHODS OF PAYMENT:
- If you are a new client and this is your first appointment with
Gary, please send a personal check, cashier's check, or money order made
out to Gary Brand for the amount of the service in advance of your
appointment. PLEASE NOTE:
Gary has closed his P.O. Box so do not send any mail to that address!
Gary will give you the address and the fee for his
service when you call. After your check has cleared his account, he
will call you to schedule your appointment. If you pay by cashier's
check or money order, Gary will call to schedule your appointment as soon
as he receives your payment. You can minimize the wait by immediately
mailing your payment.
- If you are a repeat client, payment by personal check, cashier's
check, or money order is still due in advance but your appointment may be
scheduled when you call.
- Gary is currently not accepting credit or debit cards because
the fees have become too exorbitant to make it worth the convenience.
For example, the credit/debit card processing company that Gary used
from 1999-2012 (named First Data), quit processing for him because they
claimed that he needed to upgrade his machine. The cost of this
machine to the company is probably less than $50 but they wanted to
charge Gary $700 for it! You would think that he would get some
credit for loyalty but, no — not from these big, greedy companies today!
Rather than pay this outrageous amount and the other unreasonable
fees they charge him (like an annual "compliance fee" of $132, which is
disproportionately expensive for small businesses like his), he closed his
Gary is aware that times are tough for many people (see his
on the economy). To help his clients during this crisis, he
is offering shorter sessions, the length of which you can determine,
based upon the amount of money you want to spend. He is also no
longer charging for preparation time he spends on most appointments,
unless it exceeds 15 minutes. He is offering most of his services
(exceptions are noted below) in the following increments of time, with
the minimum session being 15 minutes:
$25 - 15 minutes
$33 - 20 minutes
$42 - 25 minutes
$50 - 30 minutes
$58 - 35 minutes
$66 - 40 minutes
$75 - 45 minutes
$83 - 50 minutes
$91 - 55 minutes
$99 - 60 minutes
Any number of minutes between the above times or in excess of an hour
are at the rate of $1.66 per minute. For example, if the total
time of your session is 37 minutes, the fee is computed by multiplying
$1.66 times 37 = $61 (rounded up or down to the nearest U.S.
Fees for the following services either cannot be precisely
predetermined (although Gary can provide a rough estimate of the time
required) or they cannot be completed in less than a specific, minimum
length of time:
- Relocation analysis
- the length of time Gary spends on preparing for your appointment
depends on the number of cities of interest to you or the number of

- Election (selection of an
important date using electional astrology) - the length of time Gary
spends on selecting the best date(s) depends on the time frame you
specify, the nature of the event(s), and the number of dates he
examines (many dates can be quickly eliminated). The fee is
calculated at the rate of $1.66 per minute and is for Gary's preparation
time and the brief time he typically spends explaining the benefits
of the date(s) he selects. A minimum $75 is due in advance for
personally-taylored forecast - the length of time Gary
spends in preparation and conveying the forecast during your

talking with you. A minimum $100 is due in advance for this service,
which covers 45 minutes to an hour of appointment time (depending upon
the length of his preparation).
