My Shopping Genie Review
Well, there has been some chatter as of late about a relatively new MLM called My Shopping Genie. By all accounts, My Shopping Genie has had a pretty smooth reception as far as I can tell. The main product is an innovative shopping tool that quickly finds the best bargains for various goods online. This enables shoppers to save money by scanning sites like eBay, Amazon, Costco, and Walmart. According to My Shopping Genie, the program was developed over the course of 3 years and has since been released to the public for free. The program managed to make the broadcasting roster of CNN via an underground shopper named Sue Goldstein, a woman considered to be "The Diva of Discounts" due to over 30 years of assisting consumers make better choices on media outlets such as Good Morning America, the Today show, and even Oprah.
The way it works after it is installed on your PC is that you search for a product on any of the major search engines such as Google, MSN or Yahoo. A toolbar will open at the bottom of your screen with links to the best prices on the product you did the search for. For the distributor, a free web site is issued which allows them to distribute My Shopping Genie to others for free. With each download of the tool from your own web site, there is a 95% chance that person will shop for a product, which in turn will generate money for you based on their clicks and purchases. Another plus is that it can be used virtually anywhere in the world, so no reason to limit your base of operations to your native country.
Now there are some sources on the Internet that claim My Shopping Genie is a scam, although having never been a member, I am not qualified to say what is true and what is not in that regard, but in the interest of being balanced in the information I find, I'll simply include those negative aspects, and let anyone who has more experience comment/correct my information.
Some opposing parties have claimed that My Shopping Genie started out as an email scam, in that it sends out emails to prospective victims inviting them to join MyShoppinggenie. Once they subscribe, they're given a number of affiliate links which can be distributed to others, and these links will contain products available for purchase at Amazon, or Ebay. Once those people you emailed begin purchasing these products, you receive a percentage of the commission. The scam part is that it allegedly requires a subscription fee before you're capable of downloading the software which is said to be the sum of $199 or $29 per month. The nature of the scam is that it is spread through the promise "free software", that is essentially free, until it actually comes time to make some money.
As I stated before, this review is not claiming that My Shopping Genie is a scam, only that there is a group of people claiming that it is. I write reviews based on what I can find on the Internet, and I do my best to dismiss groundless accusations, but still like to reflect on the reception any new company has had since launch. It is entirely possible that the reports of it being a scam are simply not true, and the result of intentionally negative press created by a direct competitor. You be the judge.
