This was all triggered by an email I received today from Dressale wanting my to host a giveaway for them; but I'm already hosting one! I decided to google things such as "is dressale legit" and "dressale giveaway blog scam" and came across this post along with lots of reviews saying Dresale.com is a scam. I wish I'd done some more research before agreeing to host the giveaway :(
I also noticed that a lot of bloggers like myself have also hosted the same $30 coupon giveaway, so I tried to find some posts by 'winners' about what they spent their $30 on. Another thing I tried to find out was if anybody had done a haul from Dressale. Guess what? I didn't find any. But I did find this...

There are also a number of negative reviews on review sites but they're mixed with positive ones (probably written by Dressale themselves) which makes the site seem more hit-and-miss than a scam; so to see a Facebook page with people complaining about their experience with the company really says a lot of them.
I've learnt my lesson so any bloggers out there who are getting sponsorship emails; research the company first!
On a lighter note, I guess one good thing out of this event is that I'm going to be hosting my personal giveaway sooner. It was my blogivesary a few days ago and I was going to start a giveaway for that after this Dressale one had ended. Well, it's now ended!
To those of you who have wasted your time entered this giveaway, I am really sorry but I will make it up to you in my next one! Extra entries maybe hehee~
Keep your eyes peeled for my future (legit) giveaway post ;D
