    yeah its a scam. they want like 100 bucks and then they will "tell you" whats available for your car. and you might get like a 25 dollar sticker for your windsheild for "free". and the windsheild sticker might be any company. stay away from that crap

    yeah i called them one day and they wouldnt tell me what they had till they got my application fee. they claimed all kinds of stuff but they had to run my card to get into their system to see what they had. i took business law as part of getting my business degree and they have to give you something to prevent getting sued for false claims but they dont say what you get so technically they can give you a little edelbrock sticker and not get sued

    yep so would i. you might get lucky and they might give you something kinda cool like that guy that got air bag stuff in the commercial (if it was true). some companies will dump old stock (like 90 days old) for cost or cheaper because thay have investors whoare wanting to see unit numbers (inventory figures) change (rise). to the investors they see it as moving product and the company continues to replace the product (inventory) with a new supply. that new supply is known as fresh stock. some investors just dont want to be involved with a company that sells old stock...or dosent move stock, so the company will keep dumping the stock to continue attracting investors. one of two things happens...1-the company fails and dies. the origional corporation planners had a job for a while and made a living by selling their ideas to investors who supported the idea. investors knew it was a risk but they were willing to play. and they lost. or 2- the company gets its name out by having its product in consumers hands (promotes itself), it continues to attract investors and or keep them (capital continues to grow), they move product by replacing the stock (continue to have a fresh stock), and their production numbers rise. eventually their product will make a profit and hopefully the company will eventually support itself so investors who took the risk can get dividends (get paid). in return for getting stuff from carsponsors.com youhave to be willing o promote the company who manufactures the product you got...or products you got. and probably carsponsors.com too. (probably how that guy got in the tv commercial and he dont look happy). and your 100 bucks might be for one product so if you want another one you have to send another 100 bucks. (i am assuming that but i'm sure its a good guess). so lets say carsponsors is buying old stock. companies might sell their old stock to carsponsors for 35 bucks per unit. why? 1-carsponsors will continue to buy so the manufacturer has a buyer for old stock that wil also promote their company name through carsponser suckers. and 2-sellingso cheap isnt too bad of a loss because they will gain fresh stock, higher production numbers and more investors who will buy their 25 dollar shares of stock. (investors usually will buy stock in lots....100 shares is a lot) so the company wil attract investors at 2500 bucks per lot, and per investor. getting rid of a few items at 35 bucks is nothing compared to what they gain.
    now carsponsors buys for 35 bucks, sells to you for 100 (65 dollar profit), and you promote both carsponsors and the manufacturer. how does carsponsors make sure you do the promoting and what hapens if you dont promote? well IDK. i never got around to asking them that. plain and simple, they might not even care since they made a 65 dollar profit already. and you cant go to jail over it so who cares. but i think its dump to pay that much to roll the dice. and you could strike out and get just some stupid sticker.
    my figures are just examples. such as the 25 dollar cost per stock. also the 35 dollar cost for ols stock...i was thinking a 75 dollar (retail) tire might get dumped to carsponsors for 35 dollars..whats not a guess is the 100 bucks carsponsors wanted me to pay them before they would tell me what i could (or would) get for "free".
    do you feel lucky? i know i dont LOL
