received a flyer in the mail, said to come in from 19 Nov 2013 threw 24 Nov 2013 (6 days only)... was a sales flyer. If my number on a comnation box mathed one of the three numbers on the flyer. I was a guarnteed winner of 1 of the 4 prizes listed. Then I cold go to the dealer during these 6 days to see if the number on my comnation box matched the number on the flyer board at the dealer then I won one of the 4 prizes. 

1st prize = $15,000 cash / voucher for new vechile purchase

2nd prize = Apple Ipad 

3rd prize = $300 gift card to www.ShoppingCardStore.com

4th prixe = $150 cash

So I did listen to the sales pitch on the sales event, told Bob (Robert), that my truck was paid for and was not looking for a new / used  car at this time. Bob still collected my information; name address, phone number... After 10 min or so he finaly got the clue that all I wanted to do was see what prize I won.

So Bob walked my over to the flyer board where my winning number mathced a number on the flyer board for a $300 shopping Gift card... He told me that it was a website that had overstocked items and they change every 2 weeks thier inventory. Also told me that the card does not expire.

So I kinda figured it was a scam but took it and came home to see just how much shipping would cost... The web site will not even open... What a buch of crap this is. They just wanted me to come in a buy a new vechile. If they say guarenteed to win if your number matches then that $300 gift card should be honard and I should be able to go to Walmart pick anything I want and use the gift card period. It is false advertisement and a Rip Off scam.

Do you have brains??

AUTHOR: Tyg - ()

 First, they are not the scammer YOU are. YOU knew you wouldnt be buying a new vehicle but you went in anyways. Exactly on what planet does ten mins of your time equal $300? See what I mean. YOU KNEW YOU WOULDNT BE BUYING ANYTHING BUT WENT IN ANYWAYS TO TAKE $300 AWAY FROM THEM!!!

Then to top it all off. You DO win a prize. Even after it is clearly spelled out for you how to use it, you want more. They have not ripped you off. Its the other way around. YOU ripped them off for $300. Then to add insult to the obvious injury, YOU WANT IT AS A $300 WALMART gift card.

You are a stupid self entitled twit who used a promotion that you knew you werent going to buy off of to make some FREE product. YOU SICKEN ME!!! You slack jawed mouth breather. Get over yourself and pray that god gives those ppl that meet you the strength to NOT punch you in the head for your chronic stupidty.

Karma is a bitch and you have just earned yourself a ton of negative karma. YOU TOOK ADVANTAGE OF A BUSINESS THEN EXPECTED MORE! Im betting youre just some hood rat that couldnt even finish school so what should we expect from ppl like you.
