ShopRunner promises big strides in 2011

(Page 2 of 2)

Golden says more retailers are planning to participate in ShopRunner, including some that plan to announce their participation around major upcoming events, such as the Super Bowl and Valentine’s Day, both in the first half of February. More retailers will make the program more appealing to consumers and lead subscribers to use ShopRunner more often, he says. “Frequency will be a lot more,” he says, “when we think what the lineup will be in six months.”

  • Shoprunner is a scam, they won't honor cancellations of the "free trial" stay with Amazon so you won't get cheated. I tried out the "free" trial and most of the good items I wanted were not available for the free 2-day so I cancelled via email. Of course their website now says "Cancel requests: We cannot guarantee the processing of cancel requests through email." That is AFTER they take your money. How convenient for this SCAM. And now they won't refund the charge or even prorate the fee for the cancellation of the trial.

  • I tried ShopRunner for the 30 days and was able to cancel easily. Right when you log into your account there is a big button that lets you cancel your membership. I clicked the button and was never charged, even though I used the service. I also think there is an 800 number you can call -- I had no problems with them.

  • We are excited about the ShopRunner integration at OrderDynamics. I think their MarketPlace will really make a huge impact once it is out of Beta.

  • Funny Dmann how you complain about "scam" but seems you were actually trying to scam ShopRunner... Since there aren't any on here yet... HERE is a review from a ShopRunner CUSTOMER (me): I have used both Amazon Prime and ShopRunner and ShopRunner is superior. And I GLADLY pay the $79 annual fee because I have already made enough purchases in December to get my money's worth and I still have 11 more months. I'm now getting my vitamins, and pet supplies, etc. with free express shipping (NOT slow ground shipping) and they keep adding more and more stores. Virtually everything I see at the participating stores is eligible vs. Amazon where 70% is NOT (Marketplace, and other stuff not fulfilled by Amazon). Also I get special discount offers from ShopRunner in addition to the free 2-day shipping. Amazon Prime members get nothing special -- in fact much has been written about the way Prime members get ripped off through differential product pricing. Many times you will see something for $25 with "free" shipping on Prime, but then a "non-Prime" customer can find the same item on Amazon for $19.99 plus $3.99 shipping. Do the math... ShopRunner is better.
