Not surprised. They shipped me stuff without billing me and they could not resolve that on their end - ended up not paying anything. I tried.

Yeah they used to have all these crazy sales like save $50 on $100 purchase etc. Not surprised.

it was obvious it wasn't sustainable. Tons of advertising, continuous stream of bonuses, sign-up coupons, 20% ebates and often able to stack discounts.

Good.

These guys *****ed me on legitimate promos and charged my credit card higher after I checked out with discounts. Never used them again.

I was able to get a hairdryer for $0.84 during a TD Aeroplan Visa $50 credit promo. I haven't revisited/shopped again at the website, as I noticed most items were overpriced. Even the hairdryer was $10+ more than other shops/website at the time.

Not a very good business model at all. I think I bought once the 50 dollars off on 100 and it was a gc.
