We tried to contact the owner of Sharing Spree, Ron Sapp, by phone, but his voicemail box was full

he's not the only sapp involved in this thing

Suckers. Luckily I don't have to rely on discounted websites to get the lifestyle my family and I deserve since I discovered this secret $ making technique and now make 12k a month working part-time from home.

The site works like Groupon.

Well there's your problem.

FTA: The website says you can save up to 90% on restaurants, entertainment, spas and more in your city.

It even claims that a portion of every deal goes back to a local nonprofit.


So, retailers are giving their services for up to 90% off, plus a cut for the website (because, hey, they are a business), plus a portion goes back to the community, and no one thought this was fishy?

WTF happened to common sense?

But wait until they learn about all the savings they can enjoy, thanks to e-mails for cheap \/|ДGЯД!!1

It fell for the bullshiat concept that you can get "more for less."

When my money from that Nigerian prince comes in, I won't need discounts anyway.

We use them all the time and yes we do save quite a bit when we go out locally.  Typically a $25 coupon ends up costing $10- $15.  We've never had a coupon that wasn't accepted.   If you are not saving money using this site- you're doing it wrong.  About the only caveat is that your meal cost more than the coupon otherwise it won't be accepted.

People, on average, are pretty stupid.  Average intelligence is really not that bright.

I can't tell you how many people in our town have fallen for the Microsoft phone scams, let strangers remote into their computers AND given them their credit card numbers.  It is mind boggling.  Yes, most of them are old women, but not all of them.

People want something for nothing and will make up any excuse to justify their stupid decisions.

Thanks to this man and his seminar, I can overlook being scammed out of money because I will make a fortune!

Yeah, my wife has gotten a lot of certificates from here for really cheap, and no one has emptied our bank account yet. They even have deep sales (like 90% off) where she's picked up vouchers for $2-3.

They're legit, but I got sick of their spam. Also annoying: it always said "Limited Time Offer! Ending Soon!" even for the least of their discounts. Guys, if I'm on your mailing list, I know what I can get. "Oh no! If I don't act fast, I won't get the 40% discount! I'll have to settle for 60% next week!"

Eventually, I just said STFU (unsubscribe).

Too bad you can't just grab a tree by the very tiptop and bend it clear over the ground and then let her fly, because I bet you'd be amazed at all the stuff that comes flying out.

They said they made it up in volume.
And, they said they cheated the other guy and passed the savings onto me.
 
2013-03-09 08:46:56 PM
It's the businesses who decided to list with such a shady company in the first place who should be mocked. The people were trusting their names on the website and will still get their vouchers worth, if the companies know what's best for them.

I worked for an optometrist who used a service like that for his private practice. Through the service, people were offered $50 off the cost of frames. And you know what he had me doing the day before the offer went live? He had me go through the inventory and mark everything up by $50.

Enjoy your "discount", suckers.

/Found his ethics deplorable and quit not long after that.

Before doing business with anyone, ask yourself: "What is this person's business model?"

If you can't answer that, you probably don't want to give them your information.

CSB/threadjack: Some friends of mine have recently become distributors for these "wraps". As far as I can tell you pay them a bunch of money, they wrap you with towels and herbal shiat, and you end up looking exactly like you did before. Plus, it's a pyramid scheme. Seriously. They're constantly flogging the product on Facebook and asking people to join them as distributors. So far I'm just ignoring it but it's starting to be more annoying and less amusing.

Yea.
Wow, it's now 60 cents a bid... "Just keep clicking that bid button - if you're the last bid when the timer winds down, YOU WIN!"
