    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>and acts as your independent, unbiased guide to the best hidden insights that can save you time and headaches<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Unbiased?? Doesn't unbiased imply that they aren't earning anything on the ┬░promotions* that are *found* with his software??

    Here's an email I just sent to PRNewswire...

    Hello!

    This article,

    Seven Steps to Avoiding the Online Shopping Disasters of Last Holiday Season
    Tips Come from the E-shopping Experts at WhenUShop, the First Free Online Tool That Cuts Through E-tail Chaos and Lets Online Shopping Live Up to Its Promise

    NEW YORK, Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/

    has many untruths in it. First, at last check, it is not free all the time, only for the first 30 days. It even requires a credit card to download the program!

    Second, they ARE associated with retailers and merchants, they are not unbiased as they are earning commissions, and here is the discussion thread to prove it:

    abestweb

    I hope that you will look into this.

    Thank you for your time!
    Sincerely,
    Diane Dennis

    Hi Diane --

    I worked at PR Newswire a few years ago and if I remember correctly they don't monitor the actual content of the press releases unless it's something blatantly illegal. It is the responsibility of the person/company that wrote the actual copy to make sure that the information is accurate and, if not, to bear the responsibility for that. PRNewswire has some controls that must be met before someone can send out a release, but once those are met the press release can be sent.

    So, basically, I wouldn't expect much of a response from PR Newswire. If you get one, I'd be surprised.

    Welcome to the board and keep up the great work you are doing to stop WhenU! We're right behind you.

    Cheers,

    The Federal Trade Commission might be interested (http://www.ftc.gov).

    You can even file a complaint online:

    Place this scumware merchant on every porno and financial spamm list you can think of.

    "ABOUT SAVENOW:
    SaveNow is a program that brings you relevant coupons and offers and alerts you to various deals and services when you surf the web. SaveNow is installed on your computer as a module that comes with WhenUShop whenu.com or other software that you download from the Internet. At that time, you accept a SaveNow license agreement as part of the download process you complete. It is our strict policy to distribute SaveNow only to users who have accepted the SaveNow license agreement. If you believe you have received SaveNow without accepting the license agreement please let us know at legal@whenu.com.

    There are a vast number of offers and services available to Internet users that SaveNow may display. In addition, WhenU.com negotiates exclusive offers to maximize value for our users. SaveNow's goal is to show users information about these offers and services - right at the moment when they need it. For example, if you went to a search engine and typed in "long distance", you might get an offer for SmartPrice - a site that we found to be the best for comparing long distance plans. If you go to a travel site - we might show you how to save 40% on travel at Hotwire. If you go to a retail site, you might see an offer for a $20 off coupon at Overstock.com.

    SaveNow's offers and information are provided to users by showing a limited number of relevant coupons and ads in the form of interstitials ("pop-up ads") and other ad formats. These offers and ads are shown when users visit various sites across the Internet, based on URLs visited by the user and/or search terms typed into search engines and/or the HTML content of the page viewed by the user. SaveNow's offers are delivered independently from the site the user happens to be visiting when they see a SaveNow offer and are not endorsed or affiliated with anyone other than SaveNow."
