Hasta la vista Amoozle

Last month, I tried buying two for one gift cards from a site called Amoozle

Yes, I knew it was probably a scam. 

Yes, I knew that a nearly identical deal last year was a scam. 

But, I tried it anyway.  It was research for this blog, after all.  Well, no surprise: I never got my gift cards and now the Amoozle web site is gone.  I imagine it will appear a few months from now with some other name.  Anyway, since I used my Sapphire Preferred card to pay, I’ve filed a dispute with Chase to try to get my $29 back.  If you’re in the same boat, I recommend you do the same.

  1. I almost went for this, but decided to do some research first. Well, I didn’t find out anything definitive so I decided to err on the side of caution. I’m glad I did! How do you know when a deal is too good to be true? We do have Groupon after all.

  2. I bought and got a b1g1 Amazon gift card from Amoozle. I then said I wouldn’t risk it, but then they took paypal. So i did and now I’m getting my money back from paypal

    • Brian R: Is Paypal especially good at getting your money back? I don’t have any experience with that. Chase immediately refunded my money pending their investigation.
