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.

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?

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.

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.

It's Portland. Common doesn't exist there and nobody has much sense

buckler: Just a pre-emptive note to say that "Happy Valley" is an actual place here.


Happy Valley is where that December mall shooting took place.

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

/Remember, if you cannot pay 30$ to attend his seminar, you deserve to be broke!

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