Julep: April 2013

Recommended Posts

Still don't see it as a scam if its two different people. Esp. In the case of getting a friend into the subscription.

I think what she is implying is that the friend received 1 box for a penny (the gift) and then another box for a penny (for her actual subscription) in which case 1 person got 2 boxes for a penny a piece.

Mmmmmm. Its still not a scam unless she kept the second box for herself. And besides the friend actually subscribed afterwards

Exactly. I would only really see it as a 'scam' if the friend then also used the promo to get an intro box. I understand the intentions are obviously good, but if you use the promo to gift a friend an intro box & then she likes it & uses the promo code to order her own intro box...technically she's getting two boxes at the promo price  OR you can look at it the other way... if you used the promo yourself & then used it again to gift your friend an intro box, then you're getting two boxes at the promo price yourself, even though you're giving one away. Either way, it's against the policy on the intro box discounts. 

 

Like I said, obviously in this sort of situation you're not really trying to 'scam' anyone, but from a completely factual standpoint it is against the rules.

Right.. I'll just go to 4 different guy friends, make them all sign up for a penny box under a different profile and then make them give them all to me! 4 boxes for $.04!! (I am not doing that of course because I don't think it's "fair".. lol)

Although, technically. From a "factual" standpoint, that's not against the rules. Cuz one 1 person bought the boxes ;p

no, I should've added that julep was contacted to transfer the subscription, so she paid in full for the next box
