US Mint Fly for Free Forbes’ Article Comments Spammed by Penny Auction Affiliates

travel hackersI just came across an interesting article on Forbes regarding US Mint’s gold $1 coins and the “travel hacking cartel” – travelhackers.com, who have been buying the $1 coins with frequent flier cards, cashing them in at the bank to pay bills and then racking up frequent flier miles in the process.

From the article, “Mint caught on when some customers started buying hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of free coins, so it has since limited purchases to $1,000 every ten days.”

It’s not illegal, but it’s certainly sneaky.

Anyway, I found it pretty ironic how a few people are posting comments to the article, stating that they’ve won items on penny auctions, yet the link to the penny auction that they share is a domain they bought to mask their affiliate links for both GrabSwag.com and BiggerBidder.com.

really awesome ! I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. – -BidsNew.”

BidsNew.com is just an affiliate link mask to a new site Grabswag.com. Grabswag, questionably claims to be the “#1 Discount Auction Website.” More on this site soon.

“I buy almost everything except food and clothing from online auctions.Most people aren’t aware of the almost unbelievable deals that they can get from online auction sites.

The site that has the best deals is savedmore c્m

and I checked with the Better Business Bureau and was told that it is all legit.How they can sell gift cards, laptops, cameras, and all kinds of goodies that we all want for 50-90% off, I don’t know. I do know that I bought my son an iPad there for less than $100 and my husband a $250 Loews gift cards for $48.

Why would I even think about shopping anyplace else?”

Similarly, Jessica’s link is a masked affiliate link for BiggerBidder. Did these marketers really win on either penny auction site?

Talk about gaming the system.

That’s why online pharmacies is becoming more popular over the last years. Well-known are remedies which are used to reduce inflammation caused by inflammation of the skeletal muscle etc. There were only few examples. Did somebody tell you about canadian generic Viagra? Maybe you along know about the question. Sexual dysfunction can be a result of a physical condition. Even when it has a physical cause, psychological problems can make the disorder worse. Sex drive problems are so commonly a product of how you feel that there is something to that “headache” saying after all.
