    Pros: 

    Easy, Trusted and It works

    Cons: 

    Bitcoin fees... but it is not Purse Fault! Use Bitcoin Cash if possible!

    I used Purse to buy several things (mostly hardware and tools for the house)

    I have been always happy as they work as an escrow for the exchange and the discount is actually provided by the fact that there are people willing to buy things for you in exchange to bitcoin. 100% worth!!!

    Lorenzo Setale has used this product for one year.

People set up lofty expectations for the blockchain: "as revolutionary as TCP/IP," "threat to the modern banking system," and "savior for Greece." Yet we lack awesome products that we can use everyday. That's why we had to build Purse. Just search, click, and save at the world's largest retailer. We have the best deals on the internet. If you have ideas on how to improve the product, please let me know! Why we think this is important 👉 https://medium.com/purse-essays/... **ProductHunters get FREE 0.01 BTC (~$3) after signup**

As Andrew can attest to, I'm probably one of the sites most active users. I've been using Purse.io for about 10 months and have had 48 transactions saving me over $2,800 on Amazon purchases. I've had several transactions where I've saved 50% (which is really 35% net of fees). It's been a total game changer for my family and we use it on nearly all of our Amazon purchases. Full disclosure: I'm also a small investor via Fundersclub.

I'm confused, @2drewlee. Where are the products coming from and why are they cheaper than Amazon and other large merchants with bitcoin?
Andrew LeeMakerHiring@2drewlee · CEO @PurseIO
@rrhoover Purse is a marketplace that connects shoppers with unused gift cards. Shoppers pay with bitcoins, and Earners liquidate Amazon gift cards. Products come from Amazon.

@2drewlee got it! You could literally copy and paste that sentence on your site to make it more clear. Thanks, Andrew. 😀

Really interesting way to get Bitcoin traction to the masses.
