I just heard about this company today and checked out their website : GrapevineDiscounts.com
From what I understand, You get businesses to sign up with the company and they offer discounts. I think it's like the VIP card. Consumers purchase the card and use it when they shop at participating businesses who offer a discount.

I've read about Ad posters on this forum so I am curious about that. I didn't read about that on their website.

I am assuming there are other things you can do besides recruiting businesses and posting ads...

I contacted them awhile back (when I responded to this post) but never heard back from them.THAT made me nervous....I don't trust companies who are secretive.

Their site has many references to launching in fall 2011, etc. They also have a "locations" tab that is supposed to tell you which locations offer the card and have discounts - it is blank.

Finally, when you apply to be a participating business, it asks you to select your location from a drop down menu which -- you guess it -- is also blank.

If this company is legitimate, I would say they need to update their website and submission form. I don't have much trust in what they're offering based on the current state of the website.

Why does WAHM.com list it on here if it doesn't even seem legitimate. I can think of a lot of other companies that deserve this spot!

I just had a look at the site and all I can access is the homepage, all the other pages are forbidden. I don't like the look of Grapevine.

This are some of the advantage:
Present grievance: Under the informal system the employees disclose their needs, sentiment and their emotions to others authority without feeling any hesitation.
Alternate system: The management sometimes does not able to reach all information by formal system. Informal system covers the gap or familiarity of formal system.
Improved relationship: Any problem between the workers and the management can be solved by informal system. So it makes good relationships among the employees and the management.
