No luck - in fact, it's a crock of **** ... the more I read reviews the more horrified I am ... strangely, they're not responding to my email asking to explain all the negative spin.

As the old saying goes "if it seems to good to be true ... it more than likely will be ...".

Be careful. It may be a scam in order to get your personal information.

I'm sorry to hear this, David. I really did hope it would turn out to be as it appeared on the surface.

I had a feeling it was a bunch of bull. They always say, whoever "they" are, to never click those banners.

The good news is this: it was legitimate but I questioned their quality of service and insisted on a refund as they required a "small" payment to proceed. After a bit of argy bargy, they gave me the refund (thank dog).

It isn't free if you have to pay ANYTHING for it, large or small amount. Glad you managed the refund.

This really is a scam. To charge you for a trip that you've won? No, not legit, not really. I'm glad you actually got a refund - have you actually received it? My sister clicked on one of those free shipping popups once and found to her surprise that she was getting recurring charges to her credit card. I'm so paranoid to the extreme that I don't click on much of anything. Who knows where it will lead.

Agreed. Never pay for something that is supposed to be free. That scam is making money like crazy I'm sure.
