I was simultaneously laughing that they actually thought I’d miss not being on their show and thinking YIPPEE it might be their last season!
I thought I’d post the response I sent to them:
Thanks for the offer but having seen the things you allow on your show such as greediness & dishonesty all for the sake of ratings I would rather not be associated with your show. My readers want to see realistic couponing, not something staged or faked and I want them to understand the problems coupon fraud causes.
All the publicity in the world is not worth compromising my principles.
Now, some of you might say: Go for it and show them how to do it the right way. If they would let me I’d do it but being ethical and ungreedy doesn’t get them ratings and they don’t want someone like me.
They’ve asked the ConsumerQueen herself twice to be on the show but weren’t agreeable about letting her show couponing as it should be done.
So for now I guess I’ll for go being a TV star LOL!!
