Why You Should Avoid Clicking Facebook Offers

Posted on 24/09/2012 by | 29 comments

One of my favorite little ladies, Leandrea, from Coupons Are Great did a wonderful write-up about the onslaught of Facebook Offers lately. I wanted to share this with you as well as provide my own insight. This post is a mix of her thoughts and my own so you can learn why you should avoid clicking Facebook Offers from bloggers.

I’m an honest gal. It’s something that my Dad instilled in me at a very young age. I do not lie

    Yes, it took me just twice to figure out that “free” isn’t free so I no longer click facebook offers. I don’t like being duped, nor do I like entering my email to get bombarded by spam mail that sometimes gets generated by this kind of stuff. Quality Health offers generate so much junk mail that I had to close down an email name I had because of it. There is another one Life…something or other that says “FREE SAMPLE OF …..” and you have to go through 55 pages and then even getting the sample is sketch at best. Eff that crap. I thank goodness for blogs that say, click here for a free sample of XYZ and that link goes right there. No junk no fuss.

    It took me a couple of times to finally figure this out…..then I felt like such a dummy…..
    It’s mostly the “free, then you have to “earn” gold or platinum or what ever the metal of the day is…..
    Sometimes I’m just a wonk!!
    Thanks for the post

      @not2onry You are so very welcome and thank YOU for noticing! I am not one to try to scam someone with anything simply because that is not the way I would want to be treated.

    I am so glad to see a blogger not following this route. I miss the days when “free’ really meant free.

    I have been subcribed to so many magazines. I keep getting billed for them!
    So sick of sweepsteaks where can we go beside facebook

    • Mama-Jen says:

      @JuneHarmonIsbel I am tired of all the sweepstakes on facebook too! I usually don’t even enter sweepstakes unless they’re on the brand’s website page.

    thanks for this info… yesterday I filled out a ‘contest’ for something… the next thing I was subscribed to womans day… man I was ticked off!!

    • Mama-Jen says:

      @cathy henatyszen Ouch! So sorry that happened to you Cathy. 🙁 I really dislike schemes like that which is why you’ll never see me posting them!

    Thanks for thi article, I amsick of seeing hes false adds and many of them have bugs attached, which slow down your computer.

  7. Theresa Reed says:

    Thanks for sharing this. I was wondering why we was getting so many of those on facebook. I don’t click on them because of the simple fact that you have to pay for the shipping if you do getting one of the deals. I wish that they never would have started that. It takes up to much space.

  8. Brenda Waddell Wilson says:

    I agree most of these are bogus and I dont appreciate it when people say something is free when you have to pay shipping either, thanks for the honesty
