My 1 year old son "won" a $1000 gift certificate after competing in a race with other infants/toddlers at the (Denver) Colorado Family Fun Expo this past weekend (9/29/2010). When we got home to look up what we would be able to purchase for him we found that this website is just a HUGE SCAM!
The gift certificate is ABSOLUATELY WORTHLESS. They charge you a mandatory "shipping fee" for EACH item that you try to redeem but this fee is WORTH MORE than the actual item that they are trying to SELL. I say SELL because thats exactly what they are doing...NOTHING is for free on this cite and IN FACT the items are WAY OVER PRICED. This is a bunch ***!
WADISCOUNT.COM SHAME ON YOU! COLORADO FAMILY EXPO...SHAME ON YOU. I find it hard to believe that you were not aware of this scam before giving this out at a CHILDRENS EVENT. Very low.
It would have been better to get a $50 gift certificate to something that is REAL and REPUTABLE than to particiapte in this scam on the backs of kids. COLORADO FAMILY FUN EXPO...you colect a FEE for people entering your EXPO and IM SURE all of the exhibitors pay a fee as well. You could spring for 50 or 100 dollars. Again, shame on BOTH of these organizations.
I will call the EXPO and see what their responce will be. I am also trying to get in touch with WADISCOUNT and give them a piece of my mind as well. They screwed with the wrong mom. I highly encourage people to move to action when people try and rip others off.
We all work hard for our money so it really *** me off when others try and take. Just a simple google search can get you a phone number/address to these jerks and maybe get you some results.
I hope bad publicity on blogs gets these people to change their actions as well.
Monetary Loss: $1000.
