I signed up for the SMC plan.They sold me on the gift cards.I thought it was a good thing to begin with.They told me to give them away,it would bring people to my web page.I beleive it witl,but for a $50.00 gift card,they charge me $16.66 for which I thought was a good deal.My customers would get $50.00 off and it only cost me $16.66.What I didn't know till my first order was that I paid $16.66 for the gift card,my customer go $50.00 off his order ,then i had to order the product costing me 66.16 right off the top.There is some thing wrong with a buisiness when you have to pay customers to buy your product.I thought by me buying a $50.00 gift card for $16.66 was like getting a $50.00 gift card that I would be getting credit for,but thats not the case.Everyone beware of this credit card scheme,I'm just lucky I caught this early.I just ordered 100 $25.00 and 100 $50.00 gift cards that cost me $2562.90.They just took put i9t on my credit card and have not shipped it yet.I'm trying to get my money back.
