Hi all,


Not REALLY a deals but more like a hack with shopping cart abandonment to get a $200 voucher.


I checked out about life insurance on lifedirect couple weeks ago for research. They required your contact no. and email. After I done the comparison, I didn't go ahead with any offer. 


One day later a sale guys called (very annoying) and try to close the deal. I took 1 call and ignored 3 more calls after that.


They also sent a emails 1 month later said your insurance comparison/quote is about to expire. I ignored that as well


15 days after my quote expire, I've got an email offering a $200 voucher for life insurance. I can use on top of their 20% Cashback offer, expiring in 5 months.


So if you can wait for 45 days and happy to ignore sales call, here is how you get it.




Anyway, do anyone know any good deal with shopping cart abandonment (put stuff in your cart and not complete the transaction)? I would like to know

These sorts of discounts are normal with shopping carts. They are a successful way of getting a sale. It is a good tip to wait a few days if you are not in a rush to see if you do get offered a discount.
