Okay, so our title can be deceiving. Not everything on GreatElectronicOffers is $10 dollars, but the majority of it is! Because of this, the question arises, Why are these discounts there? Is GreatElectronicOffers.com a scam?
That is just what we’ll be looking at in this article. Whether you’re here for that discounted Jacuzzi, or for something else, this site is one that we personally wouldn’t recommend you use. They don’t seem to be completely honest in everything they say.
- They running sketchy discounts, and have the majority of their products listed at $10.
- They are using two different email addresses to run their business.
- They have several look-a-like sites that seem to be running the same exact scam.
What Is GreatElectonicOffers.com?
So, here’s the weird thing. GreatElectronicOffers doesn’t really seem to be selling many, if any, electronics. If you count watches and headphones as electronics, then they are. But the majority of the products they are selling are Sunglasses, Belts, Money Purses, etc.
If the domain name, GreatElectronicOffers.com, doesn’t match up with the product they are selling, then there is a high chance that it’s a scam. So, already, it’s not looking good for GreatElectronicOffers.com.
The thing that draws most people’s attention to the site are the discounts. And what discounts they are. Some things are priced over 90% off.
Discounts are great, because they can help sell all those products that you can’t keep on your shelf anymore, or any surplus you might have. But what’s not great is when someone claims to have a discount, but never says why!
On the main page, they say that it is a launch promotion, and that for today, they are having a discount, with free shipping. It’s not exactly a detailed reason as to why they have the discounts. But even still, are those discounts really so?
You see, we looked at this site a few days ago, and they had that same exact banner on their site – ‘Just Today’. So the promotion has been going on for more than a day. Which means, they probably aren’t telling the truth about this promotion.
$10 Dollar Sale
As you can see from the above image, every type of sunglasses that they sell are discounted for $10 dollars. Now, this is not normal.
When most people discount prices, they discount everything to a certain % of cost. So for example, everything is discounted 20%, or 50%.
But on this site, most of the products, no matter how much they cost, are all discounted to $10 dollars!
How legit are these discounts?
Most likely, not legit at all. You see, scammers will setup sites like this and put really low prices on all their products (and typically have them all the same price). Then they promote their site on social media, get people to buy from their site, and in the end, scam people out of their hard-earned money.
So this is something that doesn’t come across as being legit. Now, there are three products that we found to have a different price other than $10 dollars. Why these three products (in the above screenshot) aren’t discounted to $10 dollars, we don’t honestly know. But what we do know that they seem highly suspicious, since they don’t exactly explain why they are doing this (in any detail, at least).
So, all the above to say, the products and discounts appear to us as a normal scam-run ploy to get people to purchase from GreatElectronicOffers.com
Who Are The Owners Of Great Electronic Offers?
Now, here is where things get a little stranger.
Now, there isn’t anything wrong with using a free email address as your contact email. It’s always nice to have it as the same as your store, but if you can’t pay for that, well, you’ve got to settle for the second best thing.
But, the strange thing is that this isn’t the only email address we can find on the store. If you scroll all the way down to the bottom of the Terms and Service page, you’ll find an entirely different email address:
Using two different emails for operating a business really isn’t good practice. But then again, neither is having several exact look-a-like sites.
If you take a look at GreatElectronicOffers.com, you’ll notice that they seem to claim to be part of HarperCollections. We weren’t sure what, or who, they were, so we decided to look them up. In doing that, we uncovered several other sites that looked exactly like GreatElectronicOffers.com:
All three of the above sites are using the same exact email that is found in GreatElectronicOffer’s Terms Of Service page. So they are definitely connected. And because they are, that makes GreatElectronicOffer.com less authentic, and really scammy-looking.
Is Great Electronic Offers A Scam?
From all that we have seen, we would say that GreatElectronicOffers.com is indeed a scam. They are claim to have a sale only for one day when in reality they have been doing this for a while. Also, we’ve found several sites that are very similar to Great Electronic Offers.
Because of this, we wouldn’t recommend anyone take the discounts, or the products, very seriously. It’s just another scammer trying to rip off innocent people. Best to steer clear, stay away, and stay safe!
Don’t Get Scammed Again!
We know what it’s like getting scammed – we’ve gotten scammed plenty of times. But because of this, we were able to find similarities between many scam websites.
We created a video course, How To Detect Online Scams, in which we explain these similarities and methods we use to check a website. And we’re happily able to offer it to you for a discounted price.
Unfortunately, we can’t really give you the money that you lost by being scammed (if you did get scammed). But we can give you our course for a cheaper and more affordable price.
Follow the link below and get our course for 50% off of its original price. It’s our way of trying to help out those who have been scammed before, and/or those who don’t have a lot of money to spend!
