Facebook Target Voucher Gift Card Marks the End

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

The day has dawned where the true might of a marketing juggernaut has decided to flop money at Facebook.

Target, one of the largest and worst online marketed firms in the country today launched a campaign to get people to “Like” them. In a move akin to the nerdy kid giving you his Star Wars figurine to hang out with him. Of course there is always the possibility of this being a scam. Either way, I’m so sick of paying for friends, and likes, and advertising on facebook.

Many reasons abound for my disdain for Facebook, but now Target leaves the same terrible taste in my internet experience. I will not like you, I will not spam my friends so they will like you, even if you pay me.

FREE BEER FOR LIKES!!! COME ON DOWN, 2nd Tuesday of the First Week of Ever Month!! Just visit facebook, and like me, and then tell 5000 of your friends to like me and the first 100,000 picoliters is on me.

{this is what I received, note it tells you how to do it faster at the bottom, excellent}

With almost $70 billion revenue in 2011, we at Target have decided to give away Free Vouchers to our loyal customers.

How does this work? Follow these steps:

Step 1: Click on “Join” at the top of the page.

Step 2: Click “Invite Friends” at the top of the page and select your friends and click SUBMIT. Voucher Price depends upon amount of friends you invite.

Invite 50 Friends = $50 Voucher
Invite 100 Friends = $75 Voucher
Invite 200 Friends = $100 Voucher
Invite 500 Friends = $250 Voucher

[NOTE: To select friends faster, press TAB and SPACE repeatedly.]

Facebook Marketing FAIL

Monday, June 18th, 2012

I like pizza, do you like pizza?
I like Quaker Oat Squares, do you like Quaker Oat Squares?
I like porn, do you like porn?

Great, now since I like pizza, you should buy some right. Nope, that is the idea that has recently been shown about facebook. It appears that people buy what they want, not what their friends want.

On to the fall of facebook!!! burn, burn, burn

Scion FR-S and Spartan Toyota Here I Come

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

I’m a die hard Toyota fan, and currently have two Toyota Celica GT’s yet when I saw the ad for the new Scion FR-S I knew it was “Made for Me”

The Scion FR-S is Toyota’s new rear wheel drive small car. It is built on a similar wheel base to that of the tC and the predecessor the Celica.

They are topping it off at 200hp from the factory, and we know there will be great speed accessories hitting the market soon. So today I went about finding my new car.

I’m looking for an FR-S Manual in the blue. My search started at my favorite Toyota Dealer in the state, Spartan Toyota of Lansing. They had a manual that lasted all of an hour or so before someone bought it. They do have an automatic in stock, but that doesn’t matter.

Next, I tried Dunning Toyota of Ann Arbor, as they are right down the street from where I work. To my amazement they have none of the Scion FR-S in stock; however, they do have a couple coming at the end of the month. The internet sales person I talked with let me know that they will not be selling the one they get at the end of the month.

What, the F***, so I asked, if I where to come in with MSRP + $3,000 that you would skip making it a demo and just let me drive it on home. She Said No.

I came from car sales, and when I had a customer willing to pay more than retail, I found them their car. They got whatever color, options etc they were looking for and they got it today.

Seriously Dunning Toyota of Ann Arbor, is your BDC trained that badly. Before ending my chat session, I made sure to let the Agent know that I would go back to doing business with Spartan Toyota instead.

Switched to AT&T U-Verse Lansing, MI and Now Have Nothing!

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

Recently, after I could take no more of Comcast and their $189.00 a month bill for 1 DVR and 1 Hi-Def Receiver, I decided to try the new kid on the block.

Well not so new, obviously AT&T has been around t he block,. kinda like Jenny,. But, as you may or may not know they now have media delivery much like cable.

The idea was great, more services, better equipment and half the price,. What could be an easier choice, then day one, hours and hours after he arrived we where done,. Beautiful Hi-Def, cleaner than Comcast, fast DVR services, no lag between button press and action.

It was a dream, then I went to bed.

When I awoke, I found that my U-Verse digital receiver was FROZEN. Oh, seriously, I gasped,…. one day, and broken.

at this point I called att screaming,. letting them know that it needed to be fixed or removed today. What do you know, a few minutes later it was working fine.

Two days pass, and I arrive home from work, to find a blank screen,. Apparently my u-verse box has frozen again! well this time I get the red X of death, and after an hour of phone support I find out some great news.

MY U-Verse Box Is BROKEN,. and they can ship me a new one, in the mean time, I can just piss off.. Well after screaming for a few minutes at the representative they have scheduled a tech to come out tomorrow to “take a look” and verify it’s not the install.
