Default Gattaca One World??

For any of you that subscribe to SWS, did you pay any attention the "free" $750 gift card from Gattaca One World. Their website has watches and sunglasses and they claim you can order any of their items up to $750 for free, you just pay a 9.4% service/delivery fee. Anyone done any business with them?

My mantra is usually if it sounds to good to be true, it usually isn't. Just wanted to know if anyone has had any experiences dealing with them.

<cues up ZZ Top 'Cheap Sunglasses' on THT jukebox>

Saw it, looked at it in detail last weekend. So... they give you $750 credit to go to their website and buy sunglasses that are priced at $180 a pair or so. Hmmmm. And you pay the "small service and shipping fee."

If you spend the $750, you're forking over (roughly) $75 for three or four pairs of sunglasses and some cheap ass watch that looks spiffy.

My guess is: the merchandise isn't worth $75 to begin with. Chinese knock off crap that they buy a bazillion of. I chose not to take advantage of their wonderful and generous offer.

I came to the same conclusion. If anyone deals with them and has a different outcome please post it here.
