    This is a major bummer, I signed up like last month!

    Like everyone, I’m sorry to see the service go and appreciate what it did while it was running.

    For the future, I’d suggest a single email per offer that gives the twitter handle for registration. Since I use tweetdeck for multiple accounts, I would take it from there. For those with only a few accounts, you could refer people back to your syncassist page where the links for their unregistered accounts will live. The syncassist page would also have a value to tweetdeck users since after sending my tweetdeck, I can verify that the sync took.

    Seth, thanks for a GREAT service! I made well over $2K on AMEX offers due to the ease of your tool automating the process!

    Like the other commenter above, for the future, I’d suggest a single email per offer that gives the twitter handle for registration. I could then use tweetdeck for multiple accounts!

    Thanks!

    Argh…this sucks. I do have to say thank you for the tool and all you did to develop it and keep it running. I earned a ton of money in gift cards purchased through some of these deals, with minimal credit card spend.
