New Tactic--Offer for a Google Tablet & Software
Remember when you would receive $50 for listening to a vacation timeshare pitch? Later it became a vacation club pitch? Remember when the $50 soared to $100? Well now the approach is changing. First of all, I received the pitch through the mail. This I loved since at least a stamp was involved and the USPS would earn a few cents toward their financial woes (another story!).
OK, so here is the pitch: I am being offered a Google Tablet with the Android Software AND $100 restaurant gift card if I meet certain qualifications AND attend a 1.5 hour program being held locally. Of course I have only 72 hours to respond....starting when? I can't tell. Anyway, as mentioned above, the giveaway is for sitting through a vacation club pitch and meeting certain qualifications; in other words, so I could actually pay for the offer.
Lastly, on the return address, Google's name is placed on the corner--as if the offer is from Google. Get this---even says "verification of delivery information required.." Do you think Google would be proud of its brand being used this way?
Would I like a free Google Tablet? Sure. Will I go for the pitch? What do you think?
