    Free $300 gift card from shopzu.com

    http://www.shopzu.com/giftcards.aspx...&campaignID=44
    Found this in my spam mail. Appearently you sign up for a free 1 month trial and the giftcard is a free gift.

    Googled for info and only found spam. Nothing from forum search here.

    Has anyone tried this?

    In their t.erms...
    "Membership Fees:

    The membership fee will be billed to your designated credit card account or credit line, deducted from your designated payroll account, deducted from your designated debit card account, added to your designated mortgage statement, or added to your designated phone bill under the terms described below."

    Hmmmm....what's up with the mortgage or phone bill thing?

    Yep, ignore this. It's definitely a scam.

    Under the "Membership Fees" section in their Membership Agreement, they say you can cancel by writing to "Shopzu.com membership department, 8491 Sunset Blvd., Suite 470, Los Angeles, California 90069."

    A google search for that address brings out the fact that it's a forwarding address also used by Cardgiver and Rewardster, both of which seem to be known scammers with entries on Rip-off Report.

    For that 300.00 You need to do offers to collect points, lots of points. I dealt with this company and was not very happy They offer a 30 day trial. I attempted to cancel two weeks before I was to be Charged. I called their 1800 number 4 times and only got a recording. I emailed them 4 times with no response. Finally somebody called me 3 weeks later and cancelled my account. personally, the whole operation sounded like it was run out of a person's basement
    You have a 14 day trial. On the 10th day your card will be billed and you will be shipped a fresh supply of our wonderful product....
