I Lose Money So You Don’t Have To
That’s been the site’s slogan since I’ve Tried That was founded by Steve in 2007.
Over 10 years, tens of thousands of hours of research, thousands of articles written, and tens of millions of people reached, my sole focus has always been to provide my readers with truthful looks into the claims made by online programs, services, and products.
I want you to make well informed decisions about the investments you’ll be making.
This industry is unfortunately riddled with scams and those making claims that are unachievable and nothing more than an attempt to steal as much money from you as possible. I’m here to protect you.
Who I Am
I founded this site back in 2007. I lost $50 to a data entry scam when I was still in college. That was about half of my rent money and all I got was useless information. I felt ripped off and had no recourse, but to suck it up and pull an extra shift delivering food to make ends meet.
I setup this site so no one would have to go through the same experience I went through. I wanted to stop scam artists from preying on the vulnerable and help regular people learn the true, legitimate ways of making money online.
Our goal is to put the claims made by online programs to the test. We want to know if the service you’re being provided matches the service that’s being advertised.
We accomplish this by spending our own money to purchase a product, service, or program in order to give our readers a truthful look inside. We put our own money on the table so you don’t have to yourself. We then pour through the information being given, provide you with screenshots and analysis, and then make a recommendation.
Combined, we have decades of experiences in reviewing products and testing claims. We have built businesses in a number of different industries and we can quickly tell how the quality of a program matches up to the industry average.
We cover everything- both good and bad- to give you an in-depth look. Often times, we will make recommendations on where your money is better off spent instead.
Our goal is to provide you with the best possible use of your money, and we do that by spending our own first.
Let Us Help You
We are here to investigate any questions you may have before making a purchase. Is someone offering you an unbelievable job opportunity? Overnight riches? Tons of money for little or no work? Fill out the form on the next page and we’ll research the program on your behalf. We’ll take the plunge for you.
