I love how “creative” deals bloggers get. “HOT! All Amazon Products 50% Off TODAY ONLY!” Translated, buy a $10 Amazon gift card for $5.
“$100 worth of coupons for $1!!” Translated, buy a one-year subscription to All You magazine for $12. Within each issue, which calculates to $1 each, find coupons that total up to $100.
“HURRY! Get Free Food, Samples, Beauty Products + $100 Cash for Your Opinion!” Translated, join a consumer marketing research panel, which offers select sampling programs and point-accumulating surveys, that can you cash in once you accumulate thousands of points.
I’m not sure which bothers me more–The creative math or the exclamation points.
Now, the Amazon $10 gift card for $5 deal is a real one, and live today. But by no means am I going to yell that you must “hurry,” “act now” or emphasize that it’s “hot.”
