Without ever purchasing or trying our product, I think it is a HUGE assumption that we have bad tasting product or we are supposedly some type of ‘scam’ as you put it in your statements. I see where you try and protect yourself legally and say that’s your ‘opinion’ but how can an opinion be something that is a direct conflict of an easily proven fact? The fact is that we have only AMERICAN MADE juice in an FDA certified lab. I will be glad to send you the lad reports. If you would promote yourself as an affiliate for the brands that you so obviously are getting paid to promote, I would call into question your motives. But it is clear that your motives are the exact same motives that you tell your customers that you hate. Greed.
As far as returns: If someone is genuinely unhappy with our product we give returns even after the 14 days. I have given many and I am willing to prove it to you even though I have no obligation to do so.
Let me state for the record (which I am positive this post will never make it to your board because your advertisers will surely complain) American Smoke has no affiliation with the companies that you speak of in your post. ( Lift Vapor, XO or any other)
You say we are less expensive? Correct. We are significantly less expensive that a majority of the competition. We are less expensive because we are actually trying to get people away from traditional cigarettes. That’s the underlying reason for electronic cigarettes in the first place. Yes. We do need to make a little money to keep the fight going. Big tobacco companies have way more money that you and I together and they are so happy to see people like you who bash genuine companies like ours, so the consumers turn away from vapor and electronic cigarettes altogether.
We don’t run our operation from a garage, either. We have 4 warehouse locations thought the country but we are based in Florida.
You also say the offer is “NOT RISK FREE.” I have to object to that statement as well. If you read the terms, all we want is enough time to be able to cancel the charge to the customers card. Our system automatically charges the customer, 14 days after the shipment is received (According to the tracking number) and the cost to ship the package back to us via first class postage, with delivery confirmation is $2.62, not $18 as you suggest. So yes, the customer is responsible for the $4.95 and $2.60 which is more like $7.55 total. I could also let you speak to thousands of people who have gotten the kit 100% free. All they had to pay for was the $14.95 for cartridges and we would give them the kit for free. As a matter of fact, if any of your readers want the starter kit, 100% free with no obligation at all except buying the replacement filters, they can use the coupon code: Julia1205 on our ecommerce website http://www.americansmoke.com. I’ll even give you 10% commission for life on all future cartridge purchases from that customer. (email me for details. I’m sure you wont)
I could go on about the dis-information you are giving your readers but I think I’ve had enough of this. It’s a shame that you waste your writing talent on this negative website. I understand the need to call-out the scams and I agree with you. But selling yourself as an authority who has vetted all the websites who you speak of on here, is a lie. Just as much of a lie as you claim to “hate.” The screen clips that you show above belong to promoters and affiliates. I am investigating the one with the girl and the other claims of FREE STARTER KIT as well. We do not promote a FREE STARTER KIT only a FREE TRIAL.
In closing; I wish you the best but if you want your readers to believe you, stop making stuff up about others. Yes there are a lot of scams out there. We aren’t one of them. You will most-likely not let this post fly on your site. But in-case you do, just let it be known that a lot of your info about us is wrong. about 90% of it. Have a great holiday. By chance, do you have your attorneys address for me? I have a nice little letter for him.
