This is getting to the point of being ridiculous. These penny auction sites are designed to be a gambling site and to make money off people just like casinos. Even worse, venture capitalists are getting in on this game and investing big money into these sites. Makes sense I suppose, all of vegas is one big company now. I think the bad part is that these websites are just not regulated. At least the nevada gaming is regulated by government.

Let's get real folks...getting a hot russian bride is a pipe dream that we all have on occasion, but that is all it is...a pipe dream. Stay away from sites like this and read this article how their game of making money of americans really works

The dream is simple, a hot russian girl under the age of 22 and she doesn't speak english. Many men would pay thousands to marry one of those for awhile. Heck, even I would consider it. But it is a trap and a scam. My buddy got taken for thousands. read here how they milk you for all you are worth

We all have seen these blue shuttles taking people to and from the airport and they are a pretty good deal. Let me tell you the problem I had using it and maybe it can help you have a better experience with them. I tried for an hour to buy a ticket online and for some reason it wouldn't go through, but it took my credit card. I then called them and the lady on the phone was very nice and I paid using my credit card to make the reservation. She kept saying if I pay now rather than to the driver, I would get 2 dollars off the ticket. While 2 dollars isn't much, it is better than nothing, so I said sure. I get an email confirmation and I am thinking all is good. When I get off the plane and go to the supershuttle booth they say "where is your voucher?" I say voucher? I paid online. They give me a look of confusion. They insist on a voucher or they won't let me on the bus or I need to pay again. 30 min later after numerous phone calls to management they find I did indeed pay in advance and did not need a voucher. Moral of the story, if you use Supershuttle DO NOT PAY IN ADVANCE!!! make the reservation and just pay when you get there like everyone else.

Okay, how often in the history of sitejabber have you guys seen so many positive reviews within a 24 hour period on a single website. Just a LITTLE suspicious if you ask me. I will stop flagging them as spam because I think we can all read between the lines...

and on yelp they are giving away ipads for good reviews. I wonder if that violates yelps terms and conditions... someone should email yelp....

I have been watching crackle ever since sony took it over and I have to say it has much improved. I would have given it a meh awhile ago but now crackle really does deliver fun entertaining content. Because they are owned by sony you do get real hits like Men in black and you don't have to worry about downloading a virus or malware like on other sites that advertise free internet tv and movie downloads. Crackle is really free internet tv and online movies.

They do advertise original content but I haven't really got into any of their original shows. I have watched sports illustrated swimwear models show over and over though at work :)

Give this a try if you are interested in watching movies online for free. Connection speed is great and their video quality is so much better than what those free internet tv websites claim to deliver.

I was doing another search for movie downloads and this site keeps popping up online for free internet tv. Here is the problem, it isn't free, they offer a free trial but then once you give them your credit card it is game over for you. Getting movies for free or streaming copyright movies is always a skeptical thing because clearly they cannot really be advertising free blockbuster hollywood movies without some sort of catch. The catch in this case is that you are directed instantly to really sign up for reelhd.com website. Go ahead hit join and see for yourself. Then read the reviews of reelhd.com here

http://www.sitejabber.com/reviews/www.reelhd.com

If you are still searching for free internet tv then read this article on how they scam you by downloading viruses and malware to your computer and how they don't even host the illegal movies themselves.

You want free TV...check out hulu at least they are legit and you won't get a PC virus.

Love the design of the site and the girls are smoking hot. But don't be fooled by the nice website. These guys make tons of money selling the dream of a hot russian bride to unsuspecting americans willing to lose their money.

Pretty legit site that sells wow gold and they are a pretty big company despite the lame URL name. I bought gold from them and they actually delivered it within 24 hours. Prices are a little steep but you do actually get the gold. Very professional as well. You might want to also check IGE.com for their gold prices.

I like how they advertise that their software download is virus free...and of course only costs $49.95 for what they call unlimited free internet TV. Watching movies or online tv for free but of course only after you pay them $49 dollars is just a waste of your hard earned money.

First of all just read this article here which describes how there really is no such things as premium free internet tv.

http://www.pcworld.com/article/122857/movie_download_scams.html

it describes how you pay websites money for unlimited tv and then end up with pretty much nothing. You do get channels from all over the world but many times these are not the premium channels that you are wanting to watch.

If you must watch movies and tv online, do yourself a favor and just see what hulu and netflix have to offer in terms of streaming tv. Otherwise if you are looking for hollywood movies and tv shows and want to learn more about how people share these things online, read my review on vuze.com. Do a sitejabber search for vuze.com

This site is a slot machine that is completely unregulated....good luck, but read this first

Netflix has greatly improved their selection of on demand download content in the recent months. I was going to cancel but they really stepped up their game to compete with apple and is worth the 9 dollars per month.

These sites never cease to amaze me in how they convince people they are just participating in a regular auction. If you spend you money and only have a slim chance of winning..that is a lottery. An unregulated lottery. Read about how everyone lost their money here

This site is a little late to the penny auction scamorama scene. How can they compete with the 100000 ipad2s for $1.32 on every other penny auction site? I guess there is always room for yet another casino in town since this is pretty much unregulated gambling. Read how many think of these sites as evil business plans before you join and waste your money

http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20081214/*******113.shtml

then read how UK is considering regulating these sites as gambling sites

http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20081214/*******113.shtml

The best part of these sites is how everyone likes to bring them to the attention of sitejabber so we can now give it the attention it deserves.

What is it about the $39.95 price tag that all of these sites seem to think people will sign up for free internet TV and watching free online movies? I read the terms and conditions and it appears this site is again connected with iMovies company and you may want to do a little research online about them before you subscribe. You should also read this article on what is free internet tv.

http://www.pcworld.com/article/122857/movie_download_scams.html

If you are looking for free internet tv there are places you can go to get it for free. Do a search here on sitejabber for vuse, megavideo or surfthechannel.

There was a time on the internet where everyone was trying to get you to do surveys for either money or something even more valuable....a free movie. Those days are gone but freetvonline still seems to think people will be willing to give out their personal information to all sorts of companies in exchange for watching online movies or free internet tv. This site redirects you to sites such as this one company that asked me for my personal address, phone number, etc...who knows what these companies are really going to do with this type of information. All for a bad quality movie that I'm sure if violating all sorts of copyright laws and may possibly have a virus? Network TV has caught on nowadays and all sorts of shows are available online for free by legit companies. hulu and many more. If you are desperate for a very specific tv show or movie that you want to watch online for free then please at least read my review here before you start doing reviews online and giving away personal information.

Momomesh really has their stuff together when it comes to advertising and marketing their website. I was looking into the whole watch free movies and watch internet tv concept as I keep seeing those sites pop up on sitejabber and have come to the conclusion that most of these are somewhat of a scam. I was about to join momomesh for their so called free trial which of course requires a credit card where they charge you unless you cancel. Then I read reviews of momomesh and found they are linked to www.cinemaden.com. Just do a quick google search of that and you will read how people get tricked into paying $39.95 or worse they keep billing you for small amounts of money 1-2 bucks once they have your credit card. Never ever do a deal where you get a free trial and give someone your credit card any site that employs such sales tactics is bad news. Momomesh will let you watch some movies, but they are linking to other sites that will host them as obviously they do not have deals with hollywood studios that allow them to advertise that you can download their movie. Stick with itunes or if you are going down the filesharing path just go with bittorrent.

I usually cannot stand these penny auction sites as they all are gambling and getintoo is not an exception. However....this penny auction site selling everything from gift cards to electronic items like canon dslrs does do somethings differently. I will point them out, but I will warn people that this is a brand new site with currently only 21 facebook likes (my younger brothers high school made website has 100 likes) so I can't say for sure if they are truly legit.

1. bids are reusable
2. only 10 bids allowed per item (this prevents people from going crazy and overbidding)
3. Ability to use bids on an item for purchase of that item.
4. They claim to only make like 4-10% net profit per item which is much less than the typical penny auction site making like 500-1000% profit.

Hard to really say right now and the site design looks very amateur hour as well as the name. But it is a good concept so I hope they do well.

Daily deal sites cloning groupon are popping up so fast I can't keep track of all of them. I think the problem with townhog and daily deal sites in general is that their cut of the revenue is so high that when businesses make these deals they are doing it soley to attract new clients and taking a huge hit so they will need to upsell the client to make a profit. I experienced this first hand when I did a daily deal for a photography session. It was dirt cheap at 20 bucks for an hour session, but at the end of it, they only gave me low resolution files and said if I wanted the high res ones I needed to pay extra. I don't think these daily deal sites are here to stay once people understand how they work and don't get a great deal they will stop using them. But the restaurant deals on townhog are actually not bad and I did use it for that. I think that concept works better.

SELL OUT!!! I can't believe they started to become a groupon just to make a quick buck. They couldn't figure out how to make money on their own by selling ads to business or doing what the news called extortion, so they copied groupon? If you want to find a good place to eat go with Michelinguide.com.
