Smile Direct Club Black Friday - $300 off and $300 MasterCard for Referring

44

Smile Direct Club is currently offering a $300 bonus for Black Friday.

If you’re an existing customer, you’ll receive a $300 prepaid MasterCard for everyone you refer, and they will receive $300 off their aligners - usually $150.

Instead of $150, you'll get a $300 prepaid Mastercard® credit card for each friend who buys aligners. If your friends decide that aligners are right for them and are approved by an Australian registered dentist, they'll get $300 toward their purchase of clear aligners in-store or online. Now that's something to smile about. ;)

      The first article is mainly critical of Invisalign offering discounts to dental providers in office.

      Smile Direct doesn’t do in office with dentists. All remote.

        Can you read?

          Apparently better than you. The bulk of the article is about Invisalign, who didn’t even know they were under investigation and likened revealing that to breaching the law. Also, it alleges that Invisalign is providing discounts to providers for prescribing more, and not telling patients.

          I fail to see how “influencers” posting ads for these clear aligner companies is misleading, as it’s obvious there is a commercial arrangement. Your dentist receiving a secret discount and not telling you, a little more sus.

            @smac: Nope any payments for a prescription device is illegal and hence being investigated
            "Under AHPRA’s Health Practitioner Regulation National Law, breaches of which attract penalties of $5000 for individuals and $10,000 for companies, influencers who promote a clear aligner for an orthodontist or dentist's clear aligner services or treatments without disclosing their commercial arrangements are breaching the law."

              @aussman: Uh, no. As long as it’s disclosed, it’s not breaching the law.

                @smac: and it is not being disclosed hence why there is an investigation duh

                are you being paid to promote the product?
                what's your relationship with the company?
                what commercial arrangement do you have?
                Are you an influencer?
                Have you ever received payment from smile direct?
                Do you or a family member work for them?

                •  

                  @aussman: Can you find me an Australian “influencer” who’s promoting the product without disclosing? I’ll wait.

                  And to answer:
                  No.
                  I’m a customer.
                  None.

                    @smac: By adding in your original post that you are a current customer would have added some transparency as to this offer.

                    Not disclosing it just makes people question the above (which you've answered now).

                    People will always have their bias (personal preferences) when it comes to products and services just declare it from the start as it states your position clearly.

                  @aussman: Very good questions aussman. There are lot of people on Ozbargain who are paid to comment and promote products (yeah I have no proof but you can tell by some of the products/services they back and when they only back mediocre or crap products + other tricks). Lots of tactics are used from commenting and doing + on deals to swearing by some products and writing reviews. Do not know who to trust on Ozbargain these days.

    I would read up (on the published news articles and do your own investigations) just like financial services this may/may not be the 'right product' for you. Caution is highly advised and I certainly would at least go to a registered Orthodontic business here in Australia for a consultation before looking at alternative medical quick fixes like this.

    Useless for anyone with a serious malocclusion, potentially illegal, and risky to the health of your teeth. Go see student orthodontists at your local university to get the same standard of care you would with a fully qualified dentist for about half the price.

    I am their customer, not happy about results and customer service very poor, quality of aliners are bad.

    I went to a smile clinic last week for a free initial appointment as I've been thinking about getting braces for a while.

    A lady who appears to be a sales consultant took some 3D photographs of my teeth (FYI she didn't introduce herself as a trained dentistry professional).

    Then she explained the process and showed me the pricing (~$2,599). She also indicated that treatment would only take 6 months and my alarm bells started ringing. Mind you, friends who have had similar issues and received treatment from actual orthodontist have told me that the average time is generally 12 to 24 months…

    For what it's worth, I received a free goodie bag with a decent lip balm and teeth whitening kit from the appointment, which I thought was pretty generous.

    I am prepared for a bombardment of text messages and marketing emails going forward, but personally I didn't think it was worth the risk of messing up my teeth and jaws in the long run. However I do recommend people to go for a free consult and at least keep their options open, but make an informed decision.

    •  

      Can't really make an informed decision when they tell you the 6-month BS…

      •  

        It ain't worth it for you and me, but who knows, maybe for some people it's an acceptable level of risk for the $ and time saving. As long as they know what they could potentially be getting themselves into…

  •  

    not really a $300 card AND $300 off.
    you only get one depending on if you are the referrer or referee.
    Very misleading

    I wouldn't go to an essentially DIY orthodontic place. I'm going through Invisalign with an orthodontist right now and there's so much involved. I can't imagine it going well through "teledentistry".

    How can they help you fix stuff when it goes wrong when they aren't even there?

    Also with aligners, a lot of people need attachments and buttons glued onto their teeth during treatment. How are they going to do that?
