You pay 5 + 52 = $57 in total... ;) Still not bad if you are looking for a full detail

"high speed compound buff and polish"

I don't even want to think what kind of job they'll do for $52.

advertising scam.

Technically the voucher should cost $57.00 not $5.00

It's okay because they stated that on the website, and in case if I won't be able to make an appointment for the service I would only lose $5 the max (if they don't refund me).

that's the big question, WHEN can you get an appointment? i called their phone number as listed on their website. no one answered, voicemail said to leave a message and someone will get back to you…

has anyone used them for detailing prior to this "deal"?

btw this groupbuy advertising is smart. because you pay the "ad" fee to get the discount. which i'm sure they also ponied up some cash for this. maybe another $5 x max qty 300 = $1500 + $1500 (from customers) = $3k for the ad site.

plus i bet there's a legal disclaimer somewhere that says, you'll have to deal direct with the company instead of the groupbuy site. =) slick. real slick. groupbuys have evolved. zero responsibility on the ad firm, yes?

EverybodyBuys.com has been doing this for quite a while - some of their best deals were $5 for 50% off coupons for food/drinks at places :)

food & drinks is way different from getting your car detailed. esp when this is supposedly to be the top end detail job for a fraction of the price.

I don't think that's so correct.

If they are selling it for $5, i would assume that are keeping the $5, or a percentage of that. Then you have transactions fees (credit cards, etc) that also come into play. Sure it lowers your financial risk, but it also lowers your total revenue.

Would you rather sell 300 offers at $5, or 300 offers at $50?

Hope that was a good first post.

cost of the detail is $52+++ paying the $5 gives you the OPPORTUNITY to pay the discounted rate for the detailing service. have you read the fine print on their website?

and i was specifically calculating it as a cost to use this group buy advertising service.
$1500 from people who buy in and $1500 from merchant advertising = $3k total in fee generation.

as to what their overhead costs are, wasn't the point of my post.
