what Smart Canucks is worth

So I call bull shit. Why can't he pay what he's promised to the users who have made this so profitable for him?? Because he is a liar and by the looks of it, a cheat. Oh and FYI this is not his only web site he is also involved with:,,

Comments left regarding Smart Canucks promises made

June 30 Alex Radley

Hi everyone!

I thought I'd update you on the gifts/money owing status.

We got a few good advertisers over the past couple of months so I am happy to announce that I will finally be able to payout ALL pending gifts and money as of July 1st.

Amberlab will however be busy because she's expecting a new baby so I will take care of sending out the gifts. If however you already contacted Amberlab you do not need to contact me. Your name is on the queue and we did not forget about you!

So here's my plan:

I'll get paid around June 28th but will most likely be camping on Canada Day (although I want to see the Queen at Parliament Hill so not sure what I'll do yet). Either way I'll be free starting from July 5th and will start mailing out the gifts that week. My plan is to pay out everything in July to bring SmartCanucks' balance back to $0.

I apologize for the delays in sending out your gifts/money. I have been running SC with a negative budget for a while now and it's really frustrating. I'm glad I'll be finally hitting the $0 mark next month

[followed by huge long (incomplete) list of usernames owed]


same thread, July 22 Alex Radley

Update July 22, 2010:
Amberlab emailed me the updated list. I am preparing the envelopes as I type this. Will buy necessary items tonight and things will be mailed out within next few days.

[editors note - not one person has reported receiving anything from this]

Cashback - What to do if you need the money urgently
I've been very slowly paying out the cashback owing, as much as I can afford every month.

If you need your cashback urgently and can't wait for my slow pace please send an email to smartcanucks at gmail dot com
with the following:
- transactions owing
- total owing
- paypal

Anonymous's comments: ONE person, always very supportive of the site, claimed to be paid after emailing him that night. Many others have claimed to contact him many times including that night with no response.

Sally keeps claiming how hes paying people, but won't say who, and not one other person has said they have received payment? Apparently someone is on a previously unknown "priority list" according to Sally, yet she has not been paid.

Alex "Boo" Radley has had no comment since Aug 4, though clearly logs on every day.

We are still wondering what happened between having the money to pay EVERYONE owed Jun 30 - July 22 when he was preparing envelopes as he typed and going THAT NIGHT to buy gift cards to Aug 4 when he had the money to (maybe?) pay one person?

Where did the money go, that he's known he owed people for 1 year+ and promised to take care of many times? He went on a trip to Ottawa and camping and then there is no more money to pay what he owes hmmmm?


My thoughts on this:
And this is how it continues to go. Do they try and find out the sponsors/advertisers and get their attention to the ongoing problems? I don't know for sure. The downside of this may be the end of Smart Canucks, which I would hate to see since otherwise it is a fantastic site. My biggest beef is that Alex will not be honest and just tell the truth, if he has no money TELL THEM. People respond a lot better to the truth then to lies.

The reason the bulldog is still there and is allowed to unleash however she wants, on whoever she wants, she got him out of a previous legal problem. So it seems these broken promises may not be unfamiliar waters he seems to find himself in? Just sayin'

It could also be that people have been paid and gotten gifts and prizes owed, but have not shared this with anyone else?

Smart Canucks down the Rabbit hole still

While I did finally get paid, because I started this blog, it seems most members have not been paid. So we need to start tracking again as members are again getting upset and not allowed to voice their opinions over there in fear of getting banned. Comments have been left, emails received letting me know that again promises were made by Boo Radley, the admin, and not being kept. While I have not seen any of these threads or posts, please feel free to leave me a link and I will take a look and document it here for you. No names,or ID's need to be revealed, you leave a comment as Anonymous

Just a recap of the original admin post and people still have not been paid.

Hi everyone,

Here is the current status of the Cashback and what you need to do to get paid for all your transactions and an explanation of the reason behind the delays.

All transactions have been (and still are) fully tracked by the system. We however completely rebuilt our Cashback system and while doing so, a conflict between the old and new systems resulted in a problem that made it very hard to display the transactions that occurred in the past few months consistently. We fixed all these issues and tracking will be automated and reliable with transactions showing up in less than 24 hours in the Cashback panel starting on November 1st, 2009.

However, for transactions before November 1st, 2009, I have decided that the best way to take care of these will be on a personal basis (and manually) through email. I will ensure that you get paid for every transaction you made through the Cashback system. To express my apology for this inconvenience, instead of paying you a percentage Cashback, I will pay all the commission a transaction has generated.

All I need from you please is to email me with your SmartCanucks ID (if you know it) and a rough list of the transactions you placed and I will retrieve the details and reply back to you with a list. Once you confirm that I have listed all the transactions you made and acknowledge the total I owe you, I will then proceed to send out the payment immediately to the address/paypal you specify.

I will be replying back to your emails in less than 24 hours. Once again I deeply apologize for this inconvenience and I guarantee you that starting on November 1st, 2009 you will be getting the highest quality of service and reliability from the New CashBack System.

I will then proceed to send out the payment immediately to the address/paypal you specify.

- A Radley, Nov 2009

Why I love the Boonies

Out with the poopers this AM thought this looked so pretty

Sunday, June 13, 2010

oh oh

Seems the minions are trying to find a way to get the link off my siggy to this blog, If it bothers you that much don't click on the link!
Just remember if the rules apply to one they apply to EVERYONE. If your that adamant about it, have Boo PM me and I will remove the link. I'm not unreasonable. Just don't think that writing little innuendos in obscure posts will help you find a loophole to get rid of of it, people are keeping me informed too.


always amazed that people can read something, it's in print, on line, hell you can copy and paste, but still somehow only see what they want to. Case in point:
itsjustmebub posted this about my blog

"your can update your blog - but really - honestly who blogs about how much they hate SC and how much SC sucks and then posts a link to their blog in their signature ...
my word.

Glad you got your $.
I am "biting my tongue" so much right now it's ridiculous."

I replied with this cause it baffles me that they see things that aren't even written here "never said that I hate SC or that it sucks you should learn to read"

I say un-bite it! If you want to voice your opinion on something you were in no way involved with, go for it, it's your right. I just wish you would not accuse me of writing something when clearly I did not.

I have no idea who you even are, this is the first posts of yours I have ever seen and no doubt the last.

Out in the Boonies: echeck pending

Out in the Boonies: echeck pending

echeck pending/cleared

shows in my account I have a pending eCheck from Smart Canucks estimated completion: 6/21/2010-6/23/2010 and it has cleared!

Thank you Boo. Will let everyone know when it clears.

An update got an answer from Boo

Got a PM this morning from Boo:
" Hi,

Your blog was brought to my attention and I found it very interesting and enjoyable to read

I just want to point out that I did not mean to cheat you in any way or not give you anything I owe you. So can you please let me know how much I owe you and I will make sure you get it asap.

I really enjoy your blog though so please don't stop writing even after the issue is resolved.. it's good to know how members think about SC so that I can work on improving it. My only concern would be hurting the moderators' feelings who are not to blame at all about this gifts mess... I am the one to blame.

Alex "

I just replied

"Hi Alex,
The amount would be around $40.00 I think.
I was at $33.96 and had 2 more purchases that never showed up: AVON FROM AUG 30 for $86.96 and TOYS R US FROM SEP 9 for $182.98
Ticket numbers # 75 AND #72
My PayPal email address is:

SC ID thetick ID xxxx

Thanks in advance "

Will update when I have more.

that's weird

When I went on this AM her post was gone, now it's back but edited from the quote I got in the email. The post reads Last edited by Sally888; Today at 12:51 AM.
Maybe it disappears when it's being edited?? Or mods can really make the threads appear as they want them??? Don't know, I am not very forum savvy. Interesting though. Just saying.

okay another "edited" post by sally888

"After reading your sladerous posts on your blog about me I really truly beg to differ. You game needs to stop, its quite disturbing and sladerous. You know sometimes I get mad about things or feel "ripped" off but I would never create an entire blog centered around slandering and hurting people.

No I dont need a response back or a war from you, I just have been really disturbed and have felt personally threatened in my real life since I came across it months back.

Sometimes its just not worth revenge or hurting people imo."

Personally threatened?? Are you kidding?? You'd think I had threatened her physically. This is not in away revenge, nor am I hurting anyone. Trust me, this is also not a game. This is an accounting of my personal dealings with the smartcanuks forum. I keep it here on my blog so that my friends can read it and in case I need it, all the information in one spot for legal reasons.

I served my country for 25 years in the CAF, I spent many tours peacekeeping with NATO fighting for the rights of those too afraid or unable to fight for themselves. You want to see someone that does not back off, it's me. Until every one that is owed by smartcanucks I will keep this blog going. I really hope a newspaper or TV station reads it, takes an interest and contacts me, because I do love to chat and am a stickler for detail.

How preposterous her posts are becoming. I think she's pissed that she just can't bully me like she has so many others on there.

Got a bit of a rise it seems

On the forum I have a subscription to the thread and awoke to this email message.

Dear thetick,

Sally888 has just replied to a thread you have subscribed to entitled - SmartCanucks Gifts, Cashback, Boxing Day, Money owing etc. *Current Status* - in the Site Related Posts forum of Flyers, Deals Canada.

Well sally888, bring it on. I have everything documented, I have all the emails, copies of the posts, even the ones that were removed. It's not slander if it's true. And I am not even using your real name, it is your forum name, which even in emails you use.

Just a post that I want to keep

I really need to update the continuing bull shit fest.
Smartcanucks owner Alex posted this today Jun 11 2010:

"Hi everyone!

I thought I'd update you on the gifts/money owing status.

We got a few good advertisers over the past couple of months so I am happy to announce that I will finally be able to payout ALL pending gifts and money as of July 1st.

Amberlab will however be busy because she's expecting a new baby so I will take care of sending out the gifts. If however you already contacted Amberlab you do not need to contact me. Your name is on the queue and we did not forget about you!

So here's my plan:

Either way I'll be free starting from July 5th and will start mailing out the gifts that week. My plan is to pay out everything in July to bring SmartCanucks' balance back to $0.

I apologize for the delays in sending out your gifts/money. I have been running SC with a negative budget for a while now and it's really frustrating. I'm glad I'll be finally hitting the $0 mark next month"

Blah blah blah... he wants everyone to believe that they are going to start paying people they owe, sending gifts they owe, yeah they still held contests and shit, I don't believe Alex. This has been going on since before last August for many, Aug 2009 for me. Some of those members have since been banned or quit, they were just so fed up. I think it posted for the advertisers and to keep members,the ones not aware of the ongoing saga, from started to question them.

So they have new advertisers. Guess that is why they deleted all the negative posts about them lying to members, ignoring questions and emails.

I just posted this, but I don't expect it to stay up there long. They tend to try and keep me quiet, the whole reason I started keeping it here on my blog.

"What about us from last year who had to email all our cashback inquires and missing tickets to you and then when you bailed we had to then send everything to sally888?
By the way neither she or you have yet answered any of my emails this year, this has been ongoing since last August. Or are you just BS'ing again to keep the masses pacified? You can delete this post as I am sure you will, but I have already made a copy so that I can update my blog. It's really overdo."

And so the waiting begins again.

smart canucks "Cash Gate" update

Well it seems I got the part of the admin not knowing what was going on part wrong. I went back and re-read where I thought I had seen it, but all I see is that they wanted to un-ban me and apologize. Wishful thinking on my part maybe? lol

A question then. If my posts were so bad, which they were not, why would the ban be lifted on such a terrible person like myself and an apology given. I think it is because I am not in the wrong with the whole cash back fiasco.

I found out that quite a few people had been banned. I wonder how many others were banned during "Cash Gate" but won't come back to the site and talk about it.

Yesterday in the f there is anything you do NOT like about SmartCanucks please let me know! admin created thread, where the apology was written for me and accepted by me, all hell broke loose, like they didn't know that would happen, it is abundantly clear that there is a do as I say, not as I do situation on the forum. Being as this is really the first large forum I have been with, maybe this is the norm.
Okay, I get it now.

So... I have learned that it is best to keep my thoughts, opinions and disappoint with the way things are handled on there, off of there.
Simple.... I can do that!

I will put them here on my blog where I can't be banned or censored for this situation, or at least I don't think so, unless I piss myself off, as this is hardly important to anyone other than me, or maybe to one or two of the 100's of people that are owed money on the Smart Canucks site.

Smart Canucks Story

My ban has been lifted by the site owner and main admin dude.
Seems they didn't know what was going on with the deleting of posts and bans.
So that is cool.

They wrote in a thread
I unbanned her and I would like to talk to her on messenger to personally apologize to her.

And also posting it publicly on here....

thetick, I am very sorry


I responded in the same thread
Thank you Boo for the apology and lifting my ban.

I did take exception to being accused of trolling and being personally censored and banned and I hope it has stopped. I was not the only one who was concerned with the problems of cashback, but I guess I was the one that finally threw down the gauntlet. It's my nature, it's why I stayed in the CAF for 25 years.

I think the lack of admin presence in those threads is what was really frustrating, but I think we have all learned something from this and that is a good thing. Don't for a minute think I don't know or appreciate how much time and work it is, for you and the mods running this site. I do and I thank you all.

I know that this site will continue to be one of the best.

Now off to talk to Star on FB and tell her to come back to the mothership!

They (mods and admin) have become more present on there by the looks of it and letting folks know that they are working very hard on getting all caught up in what they owe users.
So that is good.

Being able to read all my friends posts..........priceless!!!

Star, you rock baby!!! I am back posting and reading in P&P, please come back, I know the girls will really miss you, and I would really really miss reading you in there. See you in PS later today I will give you such a stroking your happiness level meter is going to explode!!

Major problems with the Smart Canucks website

They have, or I should say now, had, a cash back system. They finally shut it down a few days ago. They encouraged users to click through the links when shopping as then the stores paid them and in turn Smart Canucks agreed to pay us a small %.

Well they have not. They refuse to acknowledge users emails, ticket inquires and users were unable to cash out.

Hundreds of posts about the problems began. I posted a few, less than 10 in a 6 month period, most were responses to questions, some were questions to the admin people of the site.

I myself have been trying to cash out since Nov 2009.

Then a real bully started pulling my posts and sending me PM's telling me to stop it.

When there was outcry that the admin owner was ignoring everyone's concern I posted this on 1 Dec 2009

---Quote (Originally by thetick)---
ARE YOU KIDDING, you can not be serious about Boo just ignoring this. I assume there are all kinds of legalities involved in the cashback set up and with all the companies that pay SC for OUR purchases.

If you are no longer involved in it, what the heck is personally sending you a PM about cashback going to accomplish? Or can you do something to speed it along or get Boo to respond to the members on this forum? If so, then I say go for it, why wait, folks have been waiting long enough.

Boo should address peoples' concerns. Simple as that. Post something !!! Tell us that because of all the problems, or lack of help, or whatever, that your expectations to get things resolved and answer peoples' emails, will take weeks/months longer than anticipated.

Honestly, if we don't hear anything back on our requests, tickets, emails, we SHOULD start to call company reps and lodge formal complaints. I am sure all the companies paying money to SC for OUR purchases would be surprised to find out what is going on here.

I will give you my time line, I will give SC until the 31st of January 2010 to take care of me personally. I have stopped using the SC cashback system and will continue to do so until they get this whole mess sorted out. I do not think I am being unreasonable.
---End Quote---

sally888 removed it. No one else posts, only mine. She said because I was threatening. Standing up for what was promised to us a threat?? As far as I was, and still am concerned, their cashback program is a binding contract. If it changed, should the users not be informed?? I would have done my shopping through Airmiles.

When I questioned sally888 when she deleted my post this is what was sent.

1 Dec 2009
This is the message that was sent:
I soft deleted your posts, as I was instructed to do so with threatening posts.

If you read the thread in cashback Im asking people to stop being so negative, I have taken over getting this mess sorted out and the negativity really needs to stop so I can move on and get this dealt with.

Threatening to call businesses and the BBB will not get you any further ahead with my organizing this situation.

If you have emailed Boo with your transactions etc they should of been forwarded to me in a mass email this weekend. I AM WORKING ON THIS. I offered to help Boo from the goodness of my heart. Your cooperation would be apreciated.

I told her there was nothing threatening, that I was merely giving them MY deadline and a heads up to what I would do to try and find out what was going on.

This is the message that she sent:

Well I was directed to remove any posts like that. I'm sorry.

Btw, if you called the stores they'd be clueless on what rebate your speaking of, its Sc who decides to share the revenue not the stores. The stores give us the money and its up to us what we do with it.

If you havent already forwarded your stuff to Boo forward it to me at xxxx@xxxxxx.xx

I do understand your fustrations thats why Im stepping in to get everything on track.


I replied that I was more than willing to wait till Jan 31 2010, and appreciated that she was working on it, but that along with me, many of us were frustrated that Boo (the admin dude) was ignoring everyone's concerns.

she sent this

This is the message that was sent:

I know its fustrating. I don't know why he avoided it. Many he was so overwhelmed. Cashback is a lot of work, being this far behind is super scary even to me because I know how hard it is when your behind. When I first took over cashback it was like this as well.
If you havent heard back in a few weeks email me. I don't know whos emails whos right now.

I am just waiting on a few more files from Boo then I can get my hands dirty.


So yesterday again folks are asking about the cash back I responded to a few
and this is the PM I got

You have received a new private message at Flyers, Deals Canada from Sally888, entitled "please stop".

trolling about cashback, im working on it.
I was yet again singled out. I am assuming that she has probably deleted my posts, but I don't know because this is what I saw when I went to the the site last evening.

The above picture reads
"You have been banned for the following reason:
stop trolling about cashback,posting personal messages I sent you is really mean, Im working on cashback now just stop trolling and creating rumours

Date the ban will be lifted: Mon, Jan 25th, 2010, 07:00 PM"

So now I am mad. I sent this email to the admin guy that is ignoring the entire situation this morning.

subjectsally888 power trip & cashback

Not sure if you realize this, but because I answered a question about cashback on a thread, and made a couple of comments in response to others on the P&P thread, that sally888 has banned me for "trolling".

I did not lie in those comments. Your site still owes me money. Because of her actions prior to this in 2009, I have been keeping copies of all the PM's she has sent me and always keep copies of the threads I post to because she has a tendency to censer me and delete my posts.

I really don't know the legalities of all this and new laws are being made about the web all the time, but I am going to talk to a lawyer, the television network that originally talked about SC, any newspaper that will listen and CBC Marketplace.

Sad that your sites' "self designated bouncer" decided to do this to a 25 year veteran of the Canadian Military. I spent my life serving Canada and Nato, I will not tolerate being treated this way. I am retired with nothing but time on my hands now, so I hope it won't interfere too much with your schooling.

All you had to do was answer my emails about cashback, or paypal me the money I was owed, but she decided to bully the wrong person.
I also thought it fair to forward that email it to sally888 with an added note to her

Tue, Jan 12, 2010 at 8:30 AM
subjectFwd: sally888 power trip & cashback

Sally888, Because what I say in private or PM I would also say in public, I thought I would forward this to you as well .

I sent this to XXXX this morning. I am thoroughly appalled at how you have seemed to single ME out. There are many many users saying more than I have and I was either answering or responding to someone else. I hardly think a few posts is trolling, but I guess you are enjoying the power trip this seems to give you. I suggest you read the email I sent to XXXX.

I own a blog, on which I will start to air all this, I twitter and have aleady been mentioning this on Facebook.

I hope you are ready to make this very very public, I certainly am.

So this is where it sits now. I have not yet heard from either of them, but I wouldn't be surprised not to, and fully expect to see a permanent ban from the site.

Now the sum of money I am owed isn't that large, $33.96 plus 2 outstanding tickets, one for AVON FROM AUG 30 where I spent $86.96 and one for TOYS R US FROM SEP 9
where I spent $182.98, so a small percentage of these totals would be owed.

For me, it's not only the money I am owed, but also for the way in which this has been and continues to be handled. I am on a fixed income now, less than $14,000 CDN a year. I have bills to pay, a mortgage, insurance payments, groceries to buy and so on. Could I use this little bit of cash, you bet!

Anyway, just wanted to get this ongoing saga out there, maybe a legal person will see it, or a news person, and take a closer look into what is going on and if any of us really have any rights when we join an group.

I will update when I hear more.
