Maybe it's my age, or my maturity, or my wealth,
$15 is not enough for me to be bothered with
helping AMEX do anything except go away.
And ..for $15 i would help them go away if I could..
but I don't think they will go away for $15.
So my advice.. spend $2 on yourself.. you'll be
'down' $17 but I maintain.. you'll be happier knowing
that you helped bring down a large company. : )
Seriously.. I was being serious.
Now, ask yourself. Would you take $15 to help bring down
fatwallet.com? Or put it this way.. If Woot paid you $15
to drop any connection with Fatwallet.com and instead you (somehow)
promised to only do business with woot.com.. would you do it?
No.. I can hear your voices.. "No" you say. What damn company
'like woot' would stoop so low as to get me to dump fatwallet for
a 'piece' of work like woot? And you'd come up with 10 reasons
.. none of which would involve $15 . to stay with Fatwallet.
So there. All tidy and clean. It's not brain science. It's
low level mind trickery formatting.
My advice.. ignore companies who offer you money to do soemthing
for them. We all know we're doing for them.. and they are the
one's with the cash to figure out every angle.
The best you could do is be $15 ahead. The wosrt you could
do is be $15 ahead, hurt a friend, and be $40 behind..
Yeah it's not obvious at the beginning but that's how the
frog got hot in the water going from simmer to red hot.
Another way to say it, "what would Jesus do?" Or ..
if He's not your Hero.. ask, What would Aristotle do?"
Or "what would Mother Theresa do?" Or "what would Donald Trump do."
See? No matter who's name I put up there.. you all know.. they
would tell AMEX to go take a flying farmhouse animal and make it
squeal. The only person(s) who would take that deal.. is people
you won't admit to knowing.
: ) Got it?
It's really very simple.
