[Exired] Gathr reward: Get Two months for the price of one (end at 02/21/14)
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi Sders,

I just received this e-mail with the title "Your Gathr reward is ready: Get two months for the price of one". Don't know whether it is YMMV (you can click the link below to get it now).

It says

"It's official: Gathr is ready to save you a bundle on your favorite brands in movies, music, shopping and more. In fact, if you sign up for Gathr today, we'll give you two months for the price of one.*

With Gathr, AOL has bundled together the best in movies, music, entertainment and shopping, making it easier than ever to save big on your favorite brands. Getting started is easy, too. Simply build your own customized package to save on exactly the products and services you want.

Oh, and there's more: you'll get a $10 bonus gift card each and every month you're a Gathr subscriber.

To take advantage of this special Gathr offer now, simply click the button below. Hope to see you soon!

Sincerely,
The Gathr Team"

This offer ends at 2/21/14.

My first post on deals, so if there is any problem please let me know. Enjoy it:)


----------------------------------------
Edit 03:30 pm 02/14/14 CST:

Here is the fine print:

*Offer expires 2/21/14. Commit to Gathr for 2 months and your first month is free. If you cancel within 30 days, you'll be charged the monthly package price. After 2-month commitment ends, subscription will continue. We reserve the right to change or cancel this offer at any time.

From time to time, we will email you about products and services we think you may like. Click here to opt out of further marketing emails from Gathr.

The promo code for the two months for the price of one is : WT78HJ99O

Thanks cpubradley:)

Updated 02/22/14 02:25 pm CST:

This deal is still alive. It seem that this is still valid probably due to the fact it is linked by the promotion code. So just try it if you still want to dive in; maybe it's not too late yet:)


================================

Updated 03/08/14 2:49 pm CST:

It seems like finally they closed this promotion. For everyone who joined this, enjoy your gift cards:)

Am I experiencing deja vu all over again? This is like the 3rd different offer I've gotten from them this week.

TofuVic 02-14-2014 01:35 PM

I did not receive anything and have 2 active Gathr accounts at the moment.

foxpeng 02-14-2014 01:43 PM

I only have one account active and one cancelled from the ling-ago $15/m deal. Btw: this is the e-mail I entered last time for "deal alert" from them. Maybe that is the reason?

Spkspk 02-14-2014 04:20 PM

I received the same offer/email. In fact I don't have Gathr account via that email and I only tried to create an account but failed.

foxpeng 02-14-2014 04:55 PM

Did you give your e-mail address to them when the $15/m deal was gone? Like "leave your e-mail and we will notice you when it's available again" or similar thing? Guess that's the reason why they mention your e-mail is in their system

Looks like they offer a Target Gift card now too as an gift card option.

dawpa2000 02-14-2014 07:03 PM

If you already have a first account, isn't the referral offer better with a second account? $10 Amazon to referrer account + $10 Amazon to referred account = $20 Amazon one-time referral bonus + $10 Amazon + $6 Amazon + $10 other = $46 in gift cards in first month for $20.

EDIT: It looks like the 2-month offer is better if you count the other gift card.

$10 Amazon + $6 Amazon + $10 other = $26 in gift cards * 2 months = $52 in gift cards in 2 months for $20.

I think this deal is better.

I received this one and the "free $20 to come back" one. I cancelled the $15 one in January.

This one gives you $26 ( $10 Amazon, $10 toys r us, $6 Amazon) plus one more option, for free instead of $20 Amazon for free.

Right?

The referral and this promo stack. They have really bad website issues. I was able to stack $10 off the first month with my referral.

Others stacked the $10 off with the $20.00 amazon bonuses and the referral.

$10 off is dead as well as the + $20.00, seems they are wising up...

How did you stack? Also how to use it w/ the referral page?

Wade27 02-15-2014 02:03 AM

Unable to process cc again. I called yesterday about other offer but unable to process various cc. This site is run by Jack offs. They don't want my money. All I want is an extra $10 to 20 bonus.

reqfield 02-15-2014 02:09 AM

I've got 10 of these accounts now.. always happen to open another one if the price is right :)

What do you do w/ all those account?

MDdealseeker 02-15-2014 07:17 AM

I have 2 accounts under different email addresses and CCs, but I got this error when I tried to sign up using this promo:

"Your account created successfully, but purchase failed:
Unfortunately this household has reached the maximum number of allowed packages. Please call us at 1-855-405-2008, from 8 am to 8 pm, if you have further questions."

travbrw 02-15-2014 07:26 AM

$32 worth of Amazon, $20 worth of Target, and 2 months of Pandora One for $20. Seems like a slick deal.

I have over 4 active accounts currently using different CCs with slight variations on my address. Try adding an apartment number to your address, or a suite.

Quiksmage 02-15-2014 07:32 AM

i cant even add another cc on any account i make. i called them up and they said 2 subsriptions per household so can you explain how you have 10 accounts and how you went about adding the cc to them?

how are you writing the billing address?
like
1234 fake st apt#1234?
It doesn't seem to matter what CC I use or what I type in the billing address, it just says
"Unfortunately we were unable to process this Payment Method. Please try another card or contact us at 1-855-405-2008, 8am to 8pm, eastern. "

I leave the city, state and zip the same, and just do 123 Fake St Apartment 1 (though I use my real street)

Yeah, I just get that same
"Unfortunately we were unable to process this Payment Method. Please try another card or contact us at 1-855-405-2008, 8am to 8pm, eastern. "

would you mind trying another one right now to see if it'll let you? I'm unsure if it's on their end or something new they implemented.

foxpeng 02-15-2014 07:47 AM

As mentioned in previous Gathr deal thread, you can only have 2 account related to the same billing address. That's the reason:) ( they don't care your e-mail address or CC company...)

I already have one acct with them now and I paid $10 for $20 bundle and still got extra $20 extra amazon.

when I tried to sign up another acct now, there's no way for me to put in the promo code when check out, I can only linked the referral

please advise if you can, thank you so much

krauty 02-15-2014 08:29 AM

Has anyone been charged any taxes or fees? I see that in a previous thread, someone said you will be charged a fee for using a debit card, but I'm unable to find any fine print about their "additional taxes and fees may apply"/"additional taxes may apply" statements

1980s_SpaceGuy 02-15-2014 08:30 AM

Trying to replicate anything on Gathr.com is ridiculous.

I'd be willing to sign up again but I can't seem to duplicate my current deal
For $20:
$10 Amazon
$10 Target
$10 Groupon
$10 Fandango
Monthly Pandora One

That's a great deal but looks like one of the old package they quit offering months ago unless I'm mistaken. It's your call if signing up for a "worse" package is worth it to you or not, but for me $20 for $36 amazon and $20 target is worth $20 bucks even if I cancel after second month.

If you know of any way to currently sign up to get more than $56 at those two merchants combined for less than $20, please share! I will rep you immediately if so!

I know others have asked you about stacking referral and 2 months promo, but just want to ask again and leave a comment so that when you reply, I'll get a notification. Thanks.

I thought this is the 2nd one.

I got the $20 offer on an old canceled account. And then I know of the now dead $20 bonus offer for the new accounts.

Btw, does anyone know, which one of the 2 above that I mentioned is better. I didnt have any time to research, so I just signed up for the new one (the now dead $20 bonus offer) but not sure if that was better than the $20 offer on the canceled email which had the free $15 package from long back. Thanks

Build your own using $10 amazon, $10 target, $6 amazon + 1 service.

Use the promo link in this thread (BOGO month) = $20 paid for:

-$10 amazon x 2 (Net: $20)
-$10 target x 2 (Net: $20)
-$6 amazon x 2 (Net: $12)

Net total: $52 for both merchants + 2 months of selected service (not valuing that at anything)

Mine worked fine (using chrome)

You might try changing browsers and if that doesn't work, clearing your cookies might.

after subscribing ..have you seen your credit card balance? I got charged $0 and $20 ... I was assuming they were going to charge me in the second month ... can someone confirm?

Just checked and yeah, they charged the $20 on mine also. I assumed they would next month but I guess since it's a firm commitment, they are charging from the get go.

Tried every type of combo I could think of. 3 different browsers, email addresses, and billing / CCs. This sucks.

try not to use comas or dots or any symbol in your address, just letters and numbers ... hope that works

AnbuItachi 02-15-2014 12:20 PM

nothing works here either. even tried different computers

Link2999 02-15-2014 12:41 PM

Just a heads up to people giving referrals - it's against the Slickdeals TOS, even if you just ask for someone to PM you (I know first-hand). If someone asks for one, then you can do it through PMs, but otherwise it's not allowed.

AnbuItachi 02-15-2014 12:44 PM

are peoples CC's going through? ive been trying to change my package since yesterday and its rejecting my CC that's already on file . . .

NotRonSwanson 02-15-2014 01:30 PM

If anyone has a groupon code to trade, I'm interested...PM me.

BostonGirl 02-15-2014 01:36 PM

My 2nd CC finally worked while incognito in Chrome.

Jason69850 02-15-2014 02:00 PM

Has anyone figured out the credit card rejection. I also had my VISA, MC and AMEX rejected. I did the $20 bonus the other day - is it tracking my ip address? I tried on my mobile phone and still got rejected for several cards. ARe you guys joining under the same card account or creating new ones? Thanks

It actually looks like gathr removed the whole referral thing anyway lol

ray12k 02-15-2014 02:02 PM

If your CC does not work you can also try your debit. I was having a problem with my CC working then used Firefox and it went through fine.

AnbuItachi 02-15-2014 02:04 PM

i used every card i have.. which is only like 5 hahah. tried all 3 browsers. even my tablet. i even called them since my CC is on file.. they said nothing is wrong, call your bank. i call my bank says nothing wrong. on my CC activity log i see gathr putting in a dollar and just taking it out... so idk why they aren't letting it go thru

No, its up.

Jason69850 02-15-2014 02:06 PM

I use every CC I have too (and I am embarassed to say I have tons) and I used my other half's name which is obviously on the CC. I tried my tablet, my iphone, 3 different computers, chrome incognito but I can't get it to take my credit cards - it must be the IP address. I even tried a different AOL account, not associated with the other one but somehow Gathr knows. The question is "how?"

billing information, you fools. it's been like this since gathr first popped up. they check billing info extensively to prevent abuse.

I did it with Chrome incognito and altered my name and address slightly and it went through. Oddly enough, it didn't go through yesterday night when I tried IE.

Does anyone know how long it takes to receive the referral credit? I know it says 30 days but I'm hoping to cancel my original account before I get charged for the 2nd month.

dvdrdiscs 02-15-2014 02:15 PM

How soon does Gathr send out the referral bonus or any kind of confirmation that the referral thing went through?

Im betting the entire point of the 30 days is so you have to pay for a 2nd month. So anyone who plans on cancelling in less than 1 is probably wasting their time with referring.

Anyone want to trade an amazon for my tru btw?

I'm sorry but I'm a little confused. When I click the link given in the email sent by gathr that has the 2 months promotion https://www.gathr.com/custom-pack...=WT78HJ99O it gets opened in my browser's tab and I can see the promotion details on the top of the page. But when I click the button on my referral email, the gathr page gets opened in a separate tab in my Chrome browser. How would it get stacked when I dont see the 2 months promo banner on the page that was opened from the referral email? Thanks in advance.

It's not billing info i believe... cause its even rejecting my CCs/debits on my EXISTING account. How does that work? I want to switch to another package and its not going through

Jason69850 02-15-2014 02:22 PM

Repped everyone who suggested different browsers but before anyone else downloads firefox on two computers (like I just did), it didn't work for me. Neither did Chrome Ignonito, different e-mails, different credit cards -different addresses - Gathr is pretty slick!
If anyone wants to PM a tip, I would be grateful. If it wasn't a snowstorm here, I would go to work and try.

AnbuItachi 02-15-2014 02:24 PM

call them and see what they say.. maybe you'll have better luck. are you on a PC or mac?

Also, I believe everyone who recently signed up, is on the 2 month for 1 month promo? since my account billing says 20$ charge, 20$ credit for a total of 0. And i didn't use the promo

dvdrdiscs 02-15-2014 02:28 PM

Any of you guys able to remove your credit card after you cancel? Mines won't let me. I rather not have my CC sit on their site if I don't plan to ever use them again.

Hscooter 02-15-2014 02:31 PM

I picked up shoprunner because my free 30 days was about to expire (I don't have an amex) and they offered me a free year if I use shoprunner 3 times in the next 3 months.. with that being said, their is no way for me to edit my bundle now that I have no need for shoprunner, correct?

jbloggs 02-15-2014 02:32 PM

Yea I know sadly the nearest one is pretty damn far. I screwed up and didnt see target as an option when I signed up. Gonna have to call and see if I can get them to switch it over since I might hang onto this for a bit.

did you know if you can use target gift card to buy amazon gift card in target store? Target is actually very far for me, now I want to switch to TRU instead so I can buy amazon gift card in TRU store, it is much closer to me.

Thank you

You get charged $ each month unless you cancel. There's mention of a potential early termination fee in the ToS as well.

gswood 02-15-2014 05:58 PM

i checked my credit, and was charged $20 pending. I add this package in my exsiting account so I have two packages in total now. The new package I added today shows free trial. I am wondering if it is normal for charge first. I thought it should be free for the first month.

Thank you.

You get the gift cards/services that you pick out in the build a package step. Last time I checked, you could get $10 Amazon, $6 Amazon, $10 Target, $10 TRU, etc. as choices. Edit: Yup, you get $10 Amazon bonus with the link.

Not sure what you meant by your second question.

xgtb 02-15-2014 06:09 PM

Can someone post a tut on how to get this promo along with a referral?

amc1870 02-15-2014 06:11 PM

The answer to the second question: You get various gift cards/services for less than face value, like the 16$Amazon+10$Target+[whatever] for 20$, mentioned above.

you get $10 amazon gc by paying for the gathr subscription right?

why would you pay for gathr.com? the Amazon $10 gc will be eaten by the subscription fee right?
if gathr is free and you get $10 Amazon GC, I would jump on this

Jila 02-15-2014 06:17 PM

Will they charge $8.95 for the shop runner subscription separately or it is included in the Gathr?

Also does Gathr charge your CC for this 1st month when you sign up or they charge next month? - TIA

Gathr charged $20 upfront for the two months, or they at least put a pending charge on my CC. You link your shoprunner account through gathr, if you have an existing account they ask you to cancel it first, Gathr then picks up the monthly bill. So if you cancel Gathr then you lose shoprunner etc.

okay here it goes:
Gathr.com is a website where you pay for gift cards.You pay less than the total actual face value of the gift cards.
e.g: you pay $15 every month (it's a subscription, which you can cancel, of course) and every month you get $10amazon gc, $10 dominos gc, $6 amazon video gc and one magazine or something else subscription.

So in above example you paid $15 and got stuff worth $26+.

Above is just an example. there are other types of bundles as well.

Now this very deal is that you get first two months for the price of one and then afterwards normal price for a month each.

Hope it helps.

P.S. a) I must be really free to be explaining this simple stuff
b) If you didn't know all this, or are still confused, I would really suggest to pass this deal. Involves subscribing, cancelling etc.
c) If am answering to ques which you didn't even ask, well, my bad. Hope someone else will clear your doubts.

Good luck !

amc1870 02-15-2014 06:52 PM

You sort of have to pay a month anyways; if you cancel during the first month, they'll charge you, and you're allowed to cancel during the second month without any fees, but you're already paying for the second month, so...

Either way, you're paying one month.

This deal allows you to get $32 to amazon + $20 to target, trus, fandago etc + Pandora/Shoprunner for two months all for one $20 fee.

alimoni 02-15-2014 07:08 PM

Thanks. I did it back in December for the $15. I got the email yesterday for this promo and signed for 2 accounts @ $20 each. Will probably go down to the $15/month for a single account after I'm billed next month. Notice the trial is only 28 days, not 30 (maybe because it's February and it's a short month?)...

krazyshopper 02-15-2014 07:09 PM

Anyone try to cancel right away? It says we are subject to early termination fee when I tried to cancel. I don't want to have to worry about having to cancel it a month from now.

rman726 02-15-2014 07:23 PM

We'll I clicked the link and then clicked the referral email and it applied the free month... Let's see if I get the referral...

I got charged 20 even though it says I won get charged until my free 28 day trial is over, so hopefully that gets removed?

All this site does is collect my credit card info and tell me they are no good, 2 Master Card, 1 Amex. I tried multiple OS, Browsers, and Address variants so it's not me. If it wasn't run by AOL I would think it was a scam site collecting credit card info.

I got that when I tried a prepaid card. Used a CC and it went thru.

Xevv 02-15-2014 09:00 PM

Hmm even though it said 1 month free etc and it says free trial under subscription.

My credit card still has a pending 20$ charge. Maybe theyll reverse it back or something *shrug*

FlyingSriracha 02-15-2014 09:05 PM

I got the same card issue that people are experience. but i realized that it didn't match the billing address to my CC. so i retry and type out exactly that matched my credit card bill. then it went through. chase. and Citi.

Hope this helps.

P.S zip code is important of all.

Either way, you're paying one month.

So we sign up now, get two months of gift cards and cancel in 31 days, right?

amc1870 02-15-2014 10:47 PM

Yeah, this deal kind of implies a 2 month commitment, especially:
*Offer expires 2/21/14. Commit to Gathr for 2 months and your first month is free. If you cancel within 30 days, you'll be charged the monthly package price. After 2-month commitment ends, subscription will continue.

Tried three different credit cards, 3 browsers...no luck. CS was no help, told me to " Check with my banks"

araposo 02-16-2014 08:20 AM

anyone know how to verify if the referral is working in signup using the method stated in the thread before you get to the point of charging your credit card?

I signed up the other day with the $20 offer, and I went to cancel it today and it gave me the $35 cancellation fee warning. But on another page on my account it says cancel anytime, no commitment. So I emailed them since it's Sunday. I don't mind being tied into my current plan for 3 months, but still, would have been nice to know this prior to signing up.

alcast082 02-16-2014 08:52 AM

I never read anything about cancellation fees. A bit shady if they implement this without prior notice.

midorix 02-16-2014 09:08 AM

$35 cancellation fee warning also stated "if you have a commitment plan". For the $20 Amazon deal, all the documents had no indication of "commitment plan" so I'm not sure how GATHR can charge cancellation fee. For this plan, I would think GATHR has better stance at charging $35 if you cancel within 2 months but I agree it's vague.

If anyone who had GATHR and cancelled, would like to hear their experience or if you received
their response back who asked the question.

My credit card still has a pending 20$ charge. Maybe theyll reverse it back or something *shrug*

same situation here, guess the 'pending' will be pending all the time?

leptons 02-16-2014 09:35 AM

no dice here, tried 4 cards, American Express, Capital One, BOA...etc all shows errors.

leptons 02-16-2014 09:47 AM

I think the promo is getting removed, just like the last $20 deal.

I used a virtual card with $21 limit so I'm not too worried.

have you signed for a gathr bundle before? because that is maybe the reason

Armoredx 02-16-2014 11:15 AM

when do you cancel the subscription? Also, is there a early termination fee? Will I lose my gift cards if I cancel my subscription?

seahawks2112 02-16-2014 11:35 AM

can you send a referral link to a member who signed up last year and cancelled? I am thinking of sending a link to an account I cancelled last year to get the referral.

I believe Gathr just occasionally stops accepting cards.

My card was denied the first time I ever tried to sign up but another card worked perfectly fine with all the information exactly the same.

Just my two cents.

AnbuItachi 02-16-2014 12:08 PM

ugh this is really annoying me. maybe they just banned all of new york hahha

Can someone clarify whether the $10 Target gift card works in the store? The terms on the actual gift card are a mess.

At one part, it states "This Gift Card is only redeemable on www.Target.com and cannot be printed."

Then at the bottom, it states "This gift card can be redeemed for merchandise or services at Target stores in the U.S. or www.Target.com (http://www.Target.com) and cannot be redeemed for cash or credit except where required by law."

it works everywhere, in store, online, you can even sell it only at any website ... never expires ... I actually use cashcard to sell my target and get a $9.36 amazon gc

it looks like you have to jump through a few hoops to get the Target GC to work in store...

"To redeem your Target Gift Card in a Target
store in the U.S. view on a web-enabled mobile
device.This Gift Card is only redeemable on
www.Target.com and cannot be printed. If you do
not have a web-enabled mobile device, please

it would have been nice if we could just print it out...

yeah pretty weird but I guess most people have a data plan on their phone. but i wonder if you can buy a target card with the egift card.

ffactoryxx 02-16-2014 01:57 PM

Read through this thread.....

Is the verdict you can sign up and if you dont want the service, cancel on day 31-59 before two months is up and keep your giftcards?

last year my boss got me and two other guys $10 target egift cards for a spur of the moment bonus, and the other 2 guys didn't have smart phones, and with shipping there really was no way to get more than a $3 product with it. I was able to help them out and bought em for $5 each :cool: everyone was happy.

dumbest way to issue gifts cards...I believe you also need to create (and remember) a login to use it.

Nope. I did use a referral to my gf and used her card. But no dice on 5 cards my name/her name. Is anyone actually having success? I'm thinking maybe it's because we have the same billing address (I also tried adding apt. A but didnt' work)? :confused:

Did anyone who did the 2 month promo stacked with referral bonus get their bonus gift card for both referrer and referred account? I did as someone posted here but didn't get the bonus and I know it says it may take up to 30 days but just wondering if anyone get it sooner. TIA.

Did you just get a new account or is it with a referral? If there was a referral, was the address the same, what about the name on the card?

Sorry about the questions but this is just frustrating for me.... 5 cards, 2 different computers, all kinds of browsers and still no go. :mad:

I used my own referral link, and created a new account using a new email. I used the promo code. The physical address is the same as one I already have in file with another account. So now I have 2 gathr accounts total. The card I used is under my name, but the name you use shouldn't matter I believe. It is a different card number than my other account I created a while back.

I have since been unable to create any account with a variety of variations when creating. Multiple unique billing addresses, valid (non virtual credit cards), virtual credit cards, multiple IP addresses, internet browsers, operating systems, etc. I have tried these variations over the last month or so with no luck. The only constant remains my name. I originally had created about 30 accounts back when Gathr first started advertising and all were closed. I am pretty safe to say that they can actually block name (although I assume common names would result in a lack of business if blocked)

I don't understand why they would block me either. I am legitimately a new user referring my gf to a new account.... sigh, I think I'm really just gonna give up now.

leptons 02-16-2014 09:05 PM

I don't think states really matter... I tried again, new email (although I ran out of cards, so had to reuse some of them), originally I opened an account on my Amex in tri-state area. I have vpn and go through check out through a Miami IP. Still no dice. I am completely clueless on how they block certain registrations. Maybe once a card doesn't go through they mark it invalid permanently. Though I'm still getting the pending charges, so it looks like they are indeed trying to charge the card. Maybe all my banks have blocked all my cards due to all the pending $1 charges.

ray12k 02-16-2014 09:13 PM

u can try debit. then it should except your CC on your referral account

I dont see how they are making money to be honest I made $102 in amazon Gift cards so for. Minus 30 bucks still comes out to $72. bucks.

leptons 02-16-2014 09:20 PM

Hmm, I tried debit and non-debit cards, none of them worked.


Ah maybe the state is the issue here. Perhaps the promotion is only targeted at certain states and if you credit card's billing address is not in the state with the promotion, it will just downright reject it... well just a thought.
