Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I gave them $5 for a laptop back 2 years ago with a promise of a laptop. The company went belly up but was revived a few months later, so I got back in with the new company free of charge. I have been patiently and dilligently going to the website almost every day to get my points to get my laptop, and last week I got my 210 points to get the laptop. I clicked the cash in my points button and got a tracking #. When I try to track the package, I type in my tracking # & press the track button, then nothing. It doesn't go anywhere. Just refreshes the screen. I have e-mailed them just about every day now, but still no luck. No responses, nothing. I can't find any other contact info but a online e-mail form. If I hear anything from them soon (hopefully) I'll update this post, but for now, don't waste your time.

Clarification. You don't have to do anything that the ad says

AUTHOR: Rick - (U.S.A.)

If you go to, you give them $5 and then you login every day & click an ad until you have 210 points. One point per ad, usually one ad per day. You don't have to do anything that the ad says, just click the link at the bottom and a "thank you" message pops up. Once you get 210 points, then you click the "order my laptop" button and within minutes you get a tracking #. Now, that tracking # is their internal 3 digit tracking #, which of course is useless to the USPS or UPS. I can't get a shipping tracking #, which I would love.

On the website itself it says you get a spanking new Sony Vaio laptop. The way they make their money I guess is from the advertisements posted (@ $75 a pop) as well as I guess not giving away laptops.

On the "track my order" link on their page, when you put in your # it just reloads the page. No information, nothing. No response from them after 4 e-mails. I even went to & tried to find a phone number but got some BS recording with no way to leave a message. Now I'm stuck. :(

#4 Consumer Suggestion

Check the post office

AUTHOR: Nikki - (U.S.A.)

Check UPS & USPS with the tracking number and see what you come up with. Im kind of confused on your story. Did you pay $5 for a laptop, or $5 to join a club to get points, that you could later turn in for a laptop? If you think you were going to get a quality laptop for $5, I think they got you on that one. I personally dont think the hassle of going online everyday and writing several emails would be worth it if you just lost $5.
