I'm trying to remember if this is the same company where I received 5.00 for free from them to use on a iTouch cover. I ordered one and it finally came after about 6 months and it was nothing but a piece of paper with sticky on the back. It wasn't even worth the stamp to mail it.
I also had tried to call them prior to receiving it to inquire about it and they never answered phone or their emails.
Wow, this one turned out to be a real pain ... and it's not even over.
I received notification -- days after I ordered -- that my voucher was ready. I pulled it up, only to find I have to call in to redeem it. Like a previous poster mentioned, these calls are outsourced overseas somewhere. I had to wait on hold for almost 20 minutes just to be answered, and then the processing took another 15-20 minutes for address processing (including repeating myself about six times for each bit of info, and the kicker described next).
Here's the kicker -- they tried to sell me some 'pay $4.95, get $100 to use at all these restaurants, stores, etc' BS. Annoyed at being baited (and because it sounded totally fishy), I declined it. She put me on hold, and a few minutes later came back on, "My manager wants to know why you don't want the $100 savings for $5." WTF??? I told her I just wanted to redeem the voucher I purchased and that was all. I was put on hold for another 5+ minutes and finally she came back and said I should receive the exxon card in 7-10 business days.
Assuming I do receive the card, I likely won't be using Saveology again. What a pain and annoyance.
Glad I did the research on the company and decided to stay away. After seeing the MSNBC report on them I knew this wasn't a deal.
Yes you can only use it one time. You can't use it 5 times and get $100 in gas. I'm sure it's like any gift card though and you don't have to use all the $20 at once.
I was referring the about the fine print from Saveology

I was tempted by this, but after reading Saveology reviews and how it takes so long to get the gift card...if at all. I think I'll have to pass.
I got my einstein's card from the last deal. I did the call in thing and it was pretty horrible. When I told the chick on the phone to cut the hard sell she started laughing at me. WTF? Glad you can redeem these online now, but I did get the giftcard in about 10 days
