Topic Wiki

This thread is to discuss whether people feel that something is unethical, not to find out what the law*/T&C says.

Any Halachic questions should be posted here.

*According to CountValentine this includes religion, but unfortunately for him, the general consensus is that religion will always be entwined in this thread.

*Hint* It's most likely not ethical.

Is there a number to call on the back of the card to check the balance? Hopefully they didnít deactivate both cards.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Is it ethical to buy more than one of the 1/2 price Amazon gift cards when Amazon specifically says 1 per household?

I would think not. Better question is, is it stealing

1 per household? I didn't even see that.  Whoops. I thought it was one per Amazon account.

I better question is why someone would continue to be a member of a forum that routinely engages in unethical behavior.

So I take it then with your continued participation in this forum that  you agree that what goes on here is ethical.

Good point!!  ;D

Do you mean the forum engages in behavior that is unethical?  ??? or do you mean that some people on the forum seem to engage in such behavior?

Letís not make this about DDF because the haters will just chime in and accuse me of bad mouthing DDF. Most of the deals at FW/FT/SD have an unethical aspect to them by someoneís standards. Most deals are one per household. Many believe that violating this is unethical. Not sure how one justifies this in their own mind. Many CC bonuses state for first time customers only but we apply anyway. I could go on but I think you get the point.

... which is just a long-winded way of saying he believes "what goes on here" to be ethical.

Most if not all forums that I know of work off the unwritten rule that if it is legal it is OK to post. I do not know of any forum that has this same unwritten rule in regards to if a deal is ethical.
