FEES AND METHODS OF PAYMENT

    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 account.

FEES:
Gary is aware that times are tough for many people (see his articles 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. dollar).
    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 astrolocation maps you request.  The fee is calculated at the rate of $1.66 per minute and is for Gary's preparation time (in excess of 15 minutes) as well as the time he spends 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).
  • 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 this service.
  • Specialized, personally-taylored forecast - the length of time Gary spends in preparation and conveying the forecast during your appointment depends on your time frame and the nature of your specific interests.  The fee is calculated at the rate of $1.66 per minute and is for Gary's preparation time and the time he spends 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).
  • Six month forecast (1 hour appointment; fee includes $25 for 30 minutes of preparation time) - $124.
  • One year forecast (1 hour appointment, no charge for preparation time) - $99; click on the link for less expensive options.
    DISCOUNTS:
  • After someone you refer has their first appointment, you will receive a 20% discount on your next appointment.
  • When you pay for more than two hours of appointment time during any calendar month, you are entitled to a 20% discount on all of your appointment time during that month.
  • Ask Gary about other discounts available.
