2 sponsorships!

ok, so i went to HIN and they had a booth for sponsorships and I was like "what the hell, what are the chances of me getting a sponsorship" so i did it and they gave 2 sponsorships: one to decalkits.com and Blaukpunkt USA. I get a full sponsorship from decalkits.com but a quasi-sponsorship from Blaukpunkt.

I dunno what i'm supposed to w/ with $625 of decals? so i was wondering what opinions you guys had. i looked on the whole website and nothing really appeals. a lot of it is just rice to me rice. I only like the Custom feature they have and the Carbon Fiber vinyl. I was wondering what you guys thought what would look sweet on my car.

and the quasi sponsorship is just discounts for there products.

thanks. your opinions would be greatly valued.

You will get burned. I gave them my $$ and they offered my the decalkits.com sponsor and the House of Boom online stereo retailer. A complete waste of money and time. I could have gotten way better sponsors trying on my own. My system has been done, which I put on the application (except for a new CD player) and, sorry guys, decals that cover your car are gay, imo.

Last month I tried to get my money back and they told me that I had more sponsors that were going to call me. This place won't be around much longer is they keep offering shitty sponsorships.

Those who knew me, knew me well.
For those who don't, can go to hell.

yeah i was planning on doing that but I think they are just taking precautions incase i try to bail out with thier stuff...80% of there sponsors try to do that ... they want to see if they can trust me. i'm hoping to get the dunlop tires and maybe some wheels but i dont expect anymore from them. i'll give it a try and keep you all updated on what's goin' down. so far i think this thing is a joke until these guys can convince me otherwise.

first i'll e-mail them "thanking" them for choosing me (BS)then i'll probably send in my first voucher for carbonfiber viynl and we'll see what these guys can whip up.

yeah i'm wondering because this was a booth @ Hot Import Nights... i mean i put down that my car was stock and they still sponsored me...i guess as long as your good @ english and BSing crap then it really should not be that difficult getting a sponsorship.

its still crap though!

Decalkits.com,

My name is Joe and I have just recently been appointed to your well renowned company to sponsor my vehicle by CarSponsorships.com. I am pleased to be a part of your team and will promise to work hard to get the name of decalkits.com out there. I currently attend a Private High School in my senior year and I think it will be easy to convince fellow students to purchase your product. I have just filled out my first voucher and will send it in soon. I realize your company has a strict policy on vouchers but I was wondering if I could use my $149 for a side decal and shadow but the cost for a shadow is an extra $50. Since my Celica is Carbon Blue and practically looks black, I would like to get a silver Ice1a.jpg with a blue shadow as it will bring out the blue in my car. I hope to hear from you soon before I send in my voucher. Thank you so much for a sponsoring me.

Cheers,

Joe.

what are the vouchers being metioned? sounds to me like a referal scam if you have to let your friends buy from the company?

ok i'm just figuring this out...

-ok first they recruit ppl and collect $89
-then they give them a crappy full sponsorship in hopes that one (the potential person that will be sponsored) will take advantage
-next once the sponsored has thier products, they bail out because they realize it would be an embarrassment to show up to a car show with only 2 sponsors so naturally, they bail.
-once the sponsored has bailed, the small companies (sponsors) collect the money for the products because they did not follow guidelines.


I have not sent in anything in yet because I need this very important response to an e-mail i just sent.

I will continue keep you all updated. I want to expose this company for how BS it really is.

They will give multiple sponsors (3+) to ppl who already have sponsors and heavy modifications but the others with stock cars, they target to collect a hefty fee...$89. not bad.

so in conclusion, i think the carsponsorships.com makes treaties with small companies to get money and carsponsorships works by just collecting $89 for anyone that is recruited...so naturally, this is a scam...damnit...we'll see what happens in the next few days.

^^ yeah was he sponsored from stock or had he already done alot?

I think Carsponsorships.com will only help* those who already have modifications and "scam" those who want to sponsor a car from stock.

I sent an e-mail requesting more sponsors...we'll see what happens now...because it said in the packet that I can get more sponsors through carsponsorships.com so we'll see how these guys do thier job...

hmmm...ok, so this is interesting...you all know how i sent that one email...?

well turns out they actually answered me ... i sent them a polite e-mail saying that they where so generous to choose me and all...so, they offered me what i was into so i just told them what i was expecting when i first signed up for the program. . . rims and tires and I would be happy with that. so we shall see what they will do now!

YAY i'm happy this might work...!

Hi, this is Ragen from CarSponsorships. I briefly talked to you at the H.I.N.
Car Show in San Mateo. I submitted your application to a few of our companies
last week and I just received word from a national car company this morning who
is interested in offering you a full sponsorship. However, this particular
company has a few other questions to ask about you, your car and about your
future car plans/ideas before they can make a final decision. For your
convenience, I have set up a web page for you to answer these questions. Please
go to https://www.carsponsorships.com/hotimportnights/sponsorship.php and answer
the questions to the best of your ability.

Remember, we are here to help you get sponsored, so I will review your answers
prior to submitting them to the sponsor and contact you if I feel there are some
changes we should make. I told them that I will have the answers to them by
early tomorrow afternoon so please submit them as soon as possible.

Sincerely,

Ragen St. Peter
