Pay $10 and get a $20 Amazon gift card on livingsocial.com
http://livingsocial.com/deals/213...-gift-card

有人花50美元得到了140美元的Amazon Gift Card. 下面是做法:

TOTAL REWARD AFTER 2 SETS - $140 in Amazon Gift Cards for a cost of $50 (7 Accounts because 1 is reused)

Deal Bucks are no longer valid, but you can still get this deal for $5 a piece

Here's my detailed instructions on how to obtain $80 worth of Amazon Gift Cards for only $30 on your first set. Each set after your first set will only cost $20! (Because you're reusing an account on the next set you'll get $60 in GC, but only pay $20)

Let me first summarize the process. When you join Living Social you're given two completely different referral links. If you use the first referral link, anyone that joins under you will receive $5 in deal bucks instantly. Unfortunately, Living Social has disabled deal bucks for this deal. You can still take those deal bucks and use them on another deal later on. The second referral link requires you to refer 3 additional users who must purchase this deal as well. If the 3 users purchase this deal, YOUR deal is FREE. So in other words, you will only have to pay for the 3 additional accounts and not your first account. (Or main account) The goal is to now combine both of the referral links to allow you to purchase 4 $20 gift cards for $10 a piece and only pay for the last 3. (The first referral link isn't necessary since you're not using the deal bucks now, but why pass up on free cash that can be used for a later deal?) If you do the math, the cost is $30 and you'll receive $80 in Amazon Gift Cards. HOWEVER, on your next set, SET TWO, you will repeat the process below using the referral links from one of the 3 additional accounts you have created. This account will become your new main account. This means you won't have to make an initial purchase on the main account. Once you've made 3 purchases, costing $30, your main account will be free. Since your main account was part of the first set and you're no longer going to have to pay for it, that first set will cost $10 less, or a $20 total. Each consecutive set will only cost $20 because the main account will become free. I realize this is confusing, but hopefully the steps below will iron out any questions.

(1) Sign up to Living Social to create a dummy account. Don't worry about being refereed as you won't be making a purchase on this account.
(2) Click "My Account > "deal bucks" > "Invite more Friends" > Scroll down and copy the referral link (You won't need to save this referral link. You'll use it just once.)
(3) Log out of your account.
(4) Paste the referral link into your browser, press enter > Enter your email > Click Sign Up (Your account should now have $5 in Deal bucks that you can't use for this deal. I'll refer to this account as your main account.)
(5) Make your first purchase on your main account for a total cost of $10
(6) Repeat step 2 and save your referral link somewhere such as notepad. I'll refer to this referral link as referral link 1.
(7) Click "My Account > "buy more" > Scroll down and copy the referral link located in the bottom/middle of the page. I'll refer to this referral link as referral link 2. Save this link as well. (Take a mental note and look to the left of the referral link, you'll see a picture of 4 men that say "Me,1,2,3")
(8) Log out of your account.
(9) Paste referral link 1 into your browser and press enter. Enter your new email and press submit. (DO NOT SIGN UP YET) (Read the notes below to see a Gmail trick for using the same email each time)
(10) Paste referral link 2 into your browser and press enter. Sign up now using the email entered in step 9. (I use the same exact information on every account except the email address)
(11) Make a purchase for again $10. (I'll refer to this account as "Additional Account 1")
(12) Repeat steps 8-11 two more times to give you a total of 4 accounts, 1 Main Account and 3 Additional accounts. (We don't care about the dummy account anymore)
(13) Log out of your account.
(14) Log into your main account and click "My Account > "buy more". To the left of your referral link you should see 4 little men in green that spell out FREE instead of "Me,1,2,3". This means your main account will receive the gift card for free and you will not be charged.
(15) If you're now moving on to a second set, login to "Additional Account 1", your new main account, and repeat steps 6-14)

Congratulations... You now have purchased 4 $20 Amazon Gift Cards for only $30, or $20 if you're on your second set. You can repeat this process multiple times to purchase even more gift cards. This took a while to create! Please say thanks if it helped!

NOTE:
(1) If you decide to purchase more than $80 worth of gift cards, you must use one of your 3 additional accounts as your new main account to only pay $20.
(2) If you're using Gmail, there's a trick to using your 1 email address over and over again. Gmail ignores "periods" in your email. For example, gmail@gmail.com is the same as g.mail@gmail.com and g.m.a.i.l@gmail.com.
(3) If you haven't already realized it, you're making a new account for each purchase. This bypasses the 1 purchase per account rule.
(4)Don't forget, each main account will also receive $5 in deal bucks per sign up after the deal ends. This means each main account will have $15 laying around.


Here's an example with less words and more data.

SET ONE
Dummy Account - No Purchase
Main Account - $10 (This account becomes $0 after the next 3 accounts are created and the deal is purchased)
Additional Account 1 - $10 (This account becomes $0 after SET TWO is finished)
Additional Account 2 - $10
Additional Account 3 - $10
Total Cost - $30 ($20 after SET TWO is finished)

SET TWO
Main Account - $0 (This account is also "Additional Account 1" from the first set and is already purchased and calculated in the previous total)
Additional Account 1 - $10
Additional Account 2 - $10
Additional Account 3 - $10
Total Cost - $30 (If you continue on to a third set it will only cost $20 after the third set is finished)

TOTAL REWARD AFTER 2 SETS - $140 in Amazon Gift Cards for a cost of $50 (7 Accounts because 1 is reused)

LivingSocial CEO: "No Widescale Problem" Of People Buying More Than One Amazon Gift Card

LivingSocial's Amazon Deal Closing In On 1 Million CustomersLivingSocial Launches "50% Off Amazon" Deal -- Already Has $1.5 Million In Gross Sales Big Day For LivingSocial – $10 For A $20 Amazon Gift Certificate
Update: Looks like this isn't actually an issue.

LivingSocial CEO Tim O'Shaughnessy just reached out to us with this explanation:

Just saw your post come through based on Martin Tobias' post and he is off on a several things, but in short, there is no widescale problem of users purchasing more than 1 gift card voucher.

Here are some specifics:

First, when a user first hits "buy", we do a pre-authorization of their card but hold off on settlement until later in the day after the deal is closed. We generally do this for a variety of reasons, but a primary reason is that if a user happens to earn that day's deal for free through our Me + 3 program, we don't want to have to charge their card back. Instead we wait to see who has earned a free deal and then process the cards.

A by-product of doing the pre-auth first and the settlement later, is that we can do server side validation (i.e. check for gamers) anytime through the day until the settlement occurs and we've reconciled the transaction. What does this mean? It means that today people who think they've "found a loophole" just haven't been told by us yet that they're violating the one purchase per person rule. We intentionally had that happen today because we expected people to game the system and didn't want to get into a game of cat and mouse all day. That 50-75% of the purchases were gamed is laughable.

The "code hack" Martin refers to changes things on the client side, but not our server side. Optically it will look like someone has changed their purchase number, but we have the number already locked on the server side.

Earlier: LivingSocial, the Groupon lookalike, sold more than 1 million Amazon gift cards yesterday at 50% off -- the biggest day in the company's history.

Each of those gift cards was supposed to be sold to a different person, bringing 1+ million unique customers to Amazon and 1 million new email addresses to LivingSocial's database.

But a blog post by one of LivingSocial's competitors, Tippr CEO Martin Tobias, highlights an alleged flaw in LivingSocial's server code that could have let people cheat, ordering multiple gift cards, and defeating the purpose of the deal.

He explains:

"Here is the latest problem. Living Social doesn't do server side quantity validation (at least they didn't yesterday). Who cares you say? Well Amazon.com for one. Their latest offer of a $20 gift certificate for $10 has the explicit restriction of ONE per customer and no gifts. You see, Amazon actually only wants to discount their product for new customers or existing customers only on $20 of merchandise. If Amazon knew there was a way to buy say 100 vouchers and receive $2000 of Amazon merchandise for $1000, they would probably blow a gasket. Jeff you better sit down. Because Living Social only validates restrictions on order quantity in the client, and not the server, there is a simple inspect element command in many browsers that lets you change the "1" to any number you want."

Tobias estimates that "thousands" of people could have taken advantage of this flaw, and he says he had been notified about the loophole from several people.

If true, and if many people did exploit it, this could be an annoyance for LivingSocial. Probably no serious repercussions, though.

CVS还是不错哒。各种优惠用一用,基本上东西都是白拿的,有时候拿完东西店家还要倒找钱。当然我还到不了那水平
