NeedMoney Blog: GrantSpring

Check out Google Cash Kit or Google Profit Kit or one of the other products heavily marketed and take a look at the Terms and Conditions (T&C) of these products. Many mention that with purchase, buyers will also be subscribed to a monthly billable service called "GrantSpring". What is "GrantSpring" and why should buyers care?

Google Cash Kit, SEO Supervisor and other similarly sounding products are being heavily advertised on many websites and blogs. NeedMoney Blog has written extensively about these products due to the large number of queries and emails to NeedMoney asking if these products are scams before purchasing.

As note several times, if a prospective buyer to any of these products takes a look at the T&C, they will often notice a disclaimer which basically states..

You have also unlocked a.. twenty one-day trial to GrantSpring.. for just $14.95 a month thereafter.. ("GrantSpring") ...

Most likely, when a buyer purchases the Google Profit Kit, they have no idea they are also purchasing this service.

The problem is Google Profit Kit (priced at $77+ a month) when combined with GrantSpring, totals more than $100 a month in services. This is a lot of money for someone struggling to make money online.

What is GrantSpring then?

According to their website, GrantSpring is a web based business which provides paying members information about applying for government based grants and private foundation grants.

A membership to GrantSpring is required to access the list of government and private grants available. There have been a number of ads in the past few month on several websites, much like Google Profit Kit, advertising GrantSpring's services.

Here is the interesting part.

According the to the Terms and Services for GrantSpring and Google Profit Kit parent, blazingkeywords, both companies are headquartered at the same location.

51 West Center Street #621, Orem, UT 84057

Now there is nothing illegal with a company having several business units; it is perfectly legal.

However, both blazingkeywords and GrantSpring use the same heavy internet marketing and high monthly service charges for their services. What's more, is GrantSpring is an add on for a service which the buyer may not have intended on purchasing originally.

A note: The FTC and other government organizations are warning consumers that there are hardly any grants available for citizens for vague purposes such as "remodeling a home" or "Paying bills". Most grants are only available for reputable organizations and require substantial financial record keeping in order to apply and be considered eligible for government funding.
