Some of us have been following the saga of the cashback website BigCrumbs for a number of weeks or months. The website was taken down amidst rumors of some sort of minor hacking, and then we were promised imminent return of the service. We waited and waited. Well, here is the big news: I just visited the BigCrumbs website, and am now informed that Big Crumbs is now transitioning to MainStreetShares, and the focus is entirely different. Instead of cash back, now you’ll own a piece of the company. Say what? What are they even talking about? I just want cash back, that’s all. Here’s the text….
BigCrumbs has moved to MainStreetSHARES®!
Go beyond simple cash back. Turn your shopping into an investment in you.
MainStreetSHARES® is a new service from the company that brought you BigCrumbs.com for over 9.5 years.
Instead of cash back when shopping at top online stores like Target, Walmart, and eBay, with MainStreetSHARES® you now earn a share of all company revenue, based on your total monthly spending. This includes shopping commissions, advertising, and new revenue streams as the company adds products and services. MainStreetSHARES® members also earn lifetime referral commissions when their referrals shop.
Best yet, you’ll also earn virtual shares called msSHARES® when you and your referrals shop through MainStreetSHARES®. In the event that MainStreetSHARES® is acquired, you’ll receive a cash payout, based on the number of msSHARES® you’ve earned.
You (yes, you) have helped to turn Facebook and many others into multi-billion dollar companies. You can easily do the same with MainStreetSHARES®. The difference is, MainStreetSHARES® shares the wealth you help to create with you!
Why the move to MainStreetSHARES®?
Our misssion has always been to provide you with an opportunity to share the wealth you help to generate for others everyday. MainStreetSHARES® gives us a chance to fully execute that mission. Instead of an emphasis on simple savings, the emphasis at MainStreetSHARES® is on earning a share of the total value that you help to create.
For instance, the only reason we can sell advertising to our retail partners is because of you. So we want to share that revenue with you. And, as our company’s value continues to grow, that’s because of you too. So, in the event of a multi-billion dollar acquisition, we believe you deserve a share.
MainStreetSHARES® is free and easy…

Garbage shares? ugh this is bad news. I assume if we had $$$ in our account it will have been converted ?
