A little over one week ago, Mobile Spinach did a small 2 day consumer demand sourced test with 9 high end San Francisco restaurants. We didn’t have a prior relationship with these restaurants so we listed the deals as “pending” on our site. We don’t charge anyone’s card if the deal is pending, and it is our practice to provide refunds on unredeemed deals for any reason. Incidentally, nobody actually bought those deals.
It obviously didn’t work, but we talked to most of the 9 restaurants after a blog reported on our test.We got some great ideas from them, and they liked what we are doing… so we owe a ‘thank you’ to the press!
We are a small young company trying to figure out how to create an easy way for local merchants and consumers to interact,and we continue to work hard towards that goal. This experience has helped us realize that we need to do a better job of communicating to consumers, and we apologize to anyone who was confused by this test.
The deals on our site currently are good to go… they are all approved and ready to use.
Thank you for being part of Mobile Spinach.
