Deals that require participation

10 1
Am I the only person who gets annoyed when people post deals that require participation, meaning you have to do so many silver and gold level sponsor things to actually receive the deal posted? I am an avid online shopper and I know these types of deals posted are not great deals. I dislike people being mislead when these types of deals are posted. I'm just wondering if they annoy any other members since I am seeing more and more of them.

I agree....it wastes time to weed through the garbage. This site use to be completely different. I would check it out multiple times a day and get some incredible freebies. Now I don't even come multiple times a week.

I am a single mom and so I do a lot of internet shopping to save money. I've tried freebie sites and they are a lot of work. It is true for the majority of the time, "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is".

I check several sites for daily deals but this site is by far one of my favorites. When people post completion deal links, it takes me longer to view all of the real deals. I don't consider having to complete X amount of silver and gold deals to get a product a deal.

An example of what type of deal I'm speaking of ...
The post will read, "free Macy's gift card" and the link will be http://www.prizepagoda.com/?oid=256gfzss&clk=4f006b99d7627e8ca0de9flf99363348&s=4562&sl=PF52300
