Shut Down

By: Robert Grosshandler | February 01, 2024

iConsumer didn’t work.  It didn’t achieve critical mass.  It ran out of money in 2021.  It borrowed money to keep going, but by July, 2023, the borrowed money was gone.  Everybody was laid off, and no human being has been around to pay attention to it since then.  Just computers on autopilot. iConsumer was shut … Continue reading Shut Down

By: Robert Grosshandler | March 07, 2023

We now have over 80,000 people who have earned stock. That’s an enormous number of shareholders. No two ways about it, we’re launched.

Pre Holiday Update

By: Robert Grosshandler | December 19, 2022

With the changes we made November 1, offering cash back on top of stock back, we’ve been watching several metrics like a hawk. On top of that, our growth (as you’ll see) allows us to have credible conversations with investment banker / investor types, and whenever possible, I want to be able to share information … Continue reading Pre Holiday Update

One Update to Cover Them All

By: Robert Grosshandler | December 06, 2022

One update to cover them all. Bitcoin Exposure In the past, iConsumer has offered Bitcoin as a reward. We stopped that practice several years ago, but we still have assets and liabilities linked to that effort. Also, we allow you to redeem cash back balances via Bitcoin.

With great volume comes great benefits, but also greater support costs.

The number of people interested in cash back rebates far exceeds the number interested in experiencing the growth of a startup. It was a great place to start, but it’s time to move on. Our belief is that the marriage of the two (great upside with current rewards) is an unbeatable combination.

So now they own shares in … Continue reading An open letter to my barber
