That's the problem of the person that decided to only offer $20 off. It's called competition. You have the exact same same resources as everyone else. If you want to hold out for higher payouts, don't count on there being as many of them.
Times change. Update your site. Don't blame your laziness on promo codes.
You're hurting yourself. Did you think you were the only person on the internet, or do you just not know what competition is?
Maybe you should charge people $97 to enter your website to make up for your lost referrals--once they realize everyone else is prepared to take better care of them than you are.
How can you hurt someone that has the EXACT SAME PROMO CODE RESOURCES? Do you really not get how things work?
Or did you just think that Dreamhost made the codes so that no one would use them? The lack of common sense on this topic is absolutely amazing.
Again, offer better deals. That's YOUR responsibility. If you think otherwise, then just get used to losing money and get over it.
And that's everyones fault but yours, I take it? How do you know they're using someone's promo code? How do you know they didn't switch hosts? Or just cancel to take advantage of a new sale? If they're telling you they left for a promo code, then you were foolish to not offer a better one.
Some people put codes out because they truly recommend DH and don't care to get rich off of an honest recommendation. What's wrong with passing on the savings? Let me guess, you would have turned down a $97 discount? Yeah, right.
Don't worry about what others are doing. It's simply none of your business.
Another thing some of you whiners don't seem to see through the stream of tears is that not everyone stops by the forum before signing up. This is far from an active forum, but DH is huge.
I'm just sitting here amazed that people are stupid enough to complain about things not being fair, when it's a perfectly even playing ground. It's not like DH only gave a few members the $97 to work with.
Crying about it here also just makes you look like greedy cry-baby jerks, so thanks for the sign-ups I get that would have been yours.
Wow. Another long post. Once again, I'd feel bad taking $1 from someone that has to sit through this trash, so here's the $97 code again: MAXDHDISCOUNT
Save $96 at Dreamhost with the 96DOLLARSOFF promo code.
