StackSocial is a part of the larger company, Stack Commerce, and is an ecommerce platform designed to help users organically discover, share, and purchase trending tech.
How Does It Work?
Have you ever been reading a cooking blog and discovered the author linked the perfect kitchen tool, right in her article?
That blogger is likely using an online ecommerce platform like StackSocial to provide visitors with organic advertisements or affiliate links that are relevant to the content they're reading.
Stack Commerce’s stated goal is to enable people to organically discover products and brands they love, based on the media they engage with every day.
Their business plan centers on publishing high-quality product content on blogs and other websites that are relevant to the readers.
Most users find StackSocial by clicking through a website or blog to access the product link. Stack Social registers users whenever they buy something from the site, or sign up for a sweepstakes.
For brands, partnering with Stack Social is an easy way to garner attention and sales without investing in traditional marketing.
For online publishers like blogs, many are struggling with declining ad revenues so this affiliate program and incremental revenue stream help to support their missions without intrusive ads.
While there are a lot of great tech gadgets available on StackSocial, there are a few standout products.
You can purchase anything from kitchen accessories like air fryers to VPNs to protect your online security. An especially useful product available on StackSocial is the online courses.
You can enroll in courses from everything for “The Ultimate Microsoft Office Certificate Mastery Bundle” to “The Complete 2021 CompTIA Certification Training Bundle” to “The Cooking and Baking Master Class Bundle”.
There are many options to choose from, whether you’re looking to up your tech skills or improve a hobby.
There are also free courses available, like “Human Nutrition 4-Week Course”. These courses are a good way to learn valuable skills online for an amazing deal.
Costs and Price Plans
There are incredible deals available on Stack Social, and they are usually limited time offers – they’re low enough to make you wonder if these products are genuine or not! Spoiler alert: they are for real.
These deals are typically available in bundles due to the nature of how Stack Social structures their brand partnerships.
By eliminating the traditional marketing overhead for many of these brands, they're able to provide great deals for their users on typically much more expensive products.
For example, the “Master CompTIA Training Bundle'' course mentioned earlier traditionally retails for $5,225, and Stack Social lists the price for just $69.99.
Customer Service and Reviews
One thing you’ll find online is that there are a lot of critical reviews of Stack Social and Stack Commerce.
They’ve been accredited by the Better Business Bureau since 2015 and on the BBB website, they have 3.92 out of 5 stars, averaged across 722 customer reviews.
So while they are a reputable and reliable ecommerce platform, it seems their customer service leaves something to be desired.
There is no customer service phone number, only a form to submit a request if needed, which has left some customers wishing for more support.
That said, most reviews of the products that customers have purchased are excellent – it seems the biggest gap is in customer service following purchase.
The other question a lot of people have is – are the Stack Social Giveaways legit?
The answer is yes, they are legitimate, and users have really won the products. As with anything on the Internet, always proceed with caution when giving out your information online.
However, this is just one way in which Stack Social advertises, since online publishers users share giveaway details garnering more attention for the ecommerce platform.
The Bottom Line
As with anything online, you should share your information judiciously – but overall yes.
You can get deals on exciting products on Stack Social that may help you upgrade your life, both personally and professionally.

Don't buy from StackSocial!
They took my credit card info and tried to purchase $700 worth of stuff at Walmart! Luckily, my card declined the purchase before it went through.
Cannot activate the key for Office 365 Pro
I purchased MS Office from Stack Social and it does not work. MicroSoft says that Stack Social sells Activation Codes that have previously been activated by other customers. They offered to send another link and code when I reported the problem.
That code also failed to activate the sof. They refuse to refund my money. They are theives, liars and crooks. DO NOT BUY FROM STACK SOCIAL UNLESS YOU WANT YOUR MONEY STOLEN!
Works for me! Highly recommend!
I'm really stunned to see so many negative reviews here, especially for Microsoft Office Pro 2021. I read about the same special offer in a CNet News email and decided to check it out.
So glad I did, though at first, I thought it was a scam, too. I checked around about Stack Social and found out it was legit. I purchased the Office Download via PayPal and had no issues. I liked the product and ease of download so much that I purchased a second license for another laptop via Stack Social.
Once I made the purchase, I received an email to make the download, which took me to Microsoft to make the download. No issues here. The software is legit and I have no hiccups using it.
Based on my experience, I highly recommend Stack Social and this software. I wouldn't hesitate to make another purchase from them. I don't know about customer service because I didn't need to use them.
NO REFUNDS? ARE YOU KIDDING?!
Tried to download my purchase of MS Office but after receiving error messages (despite following all the prompts), I gave up.
Asked for a refund and after numerous email exchanges, they said all sales were final and they don't offer refunds - even though I couldn't download the software!
Am now In the process of taking this issue up with my credit card company.
So buyers, please beware. Not the easiest company to deal with. Better to use Amazon or anyplace else with honest refund policies.
Yea, definitely let the buyer be aware kind of place
I made one of the most common mistake when comes to purchasing on internet, being impulsive. When I first saw the StackSocial's ad for the Microsoft office pro plus 2021 lifetime license on sale for $29.99, I immediately started to look for my credit card. Right after I made the purchase I did what I should had done before made the purchase, research the company and the product.
Sure enough, reviewopedia.com were full of negative reviews regarding stacksocial's unscrupulous practices, such as gave the used license code, and refund only in the store credit instead of cash refund, which they didn't warn you before the purchase, that the digital merchandise could only be refunded in the store credit. In my case I didn't even get the license code after the payment because I had multiple email addresses associated with the purchase. Who does that?
BTW, StackSocial allowed me to made the purchase before I signed up for an account, which should also be another red flag. 4 support desks requests either went unanswered, else it was the AI generated answer that was totally useless. On their web site no clear instructions on how to get a refund , that should be another red flag. I am to contact the support desk team for refund. After so many jerking around, I decided to check with the Paypal, which I used for the payment transaction, and it was the only smart move I made in this whole cluster Fudge that I got my self into.
The paypal had an email address for StackSocial ([email protected]) that the Paypal said I should contact first before I started a dispute case with the Paypal. So I email the address and told them that I want a refund. The reply came back within a hour. Though not what I wanted to hear, they told me the same issue about my email address when I made the purchase, and that was why there were zero order in my account.
Further more, I could either gave them consent to claim my license code, that they would let me know how to retrieve the code afterward. Else I could get a full refund in the store credit. To assure me, they told me the store credit would not expire, so I could took my time and find something else I might like in the store. I decided to take the credit because I couldn't deal with a possibility of getting the used license code.
However, do I really know how long Socialstack.com will be around? I mean they can file for bankruptcy next week, and change their name to start over again. All customers with the credit from StackSocial will be fudged. So yea, I call it as I see it, it's a SCAM!!! Seriously, conducting eCommerce should never be this shady.
Failed to Deliver Product
I ordered 2 Joyus Exclusive Luggage Shelf’s and paid $114.70 for items and shipping. I never received them. The confirmation email is a “no-reply” one so if you reply to it you get
“ Your message wasn't delivered to [email protected] because the address couldn't be found, or is unable to receive mail.”
Based on my experience, I would say Stack Social is not legit.
They got me too. MS Office but the redemption code was expired. They stated that they would send another. 4 weeks later, nothing. Filed a dispute with my credit card. Requested a full refund by check, as I will not give them access to my card again. Now it's company policy not to do that. Again want access to credit card info. NFW that's happening. Stay away, as they are clearly scammers.
Ordered and paid for Office download. The claim to deliver Software with an activation Code. The Activation Code is not Working.
Their response is an automated canned e-mail with a link to a year-old empty page which supposes to fix the problem.
FRAUD The activation Code supplied is not working
Outright Fraud. The claim to deliver Software with an activation Code. The Activation Code is not Working.
Their response is an automated canned e-mail with a link to a year-old empty page which supposes to fix the problem.
Nothing lower than a 1 star rating...
Didn't provide the complete order
I ordered a regular Sam's membership for $24.99 which included a $10 Sam's eGift card. I received the Sam's membership, but no $10 Sam's eGift card. When I contacted the support team, I was told that the offer had expired and the marketing had been updated.
The offer was valid the day I ordered the Sam's membership and I had a copy of their website where the stated offer said so. Stack Social requested endless paperwork to verify that a $10 Sam's eGift card was offered.
I provided the sales receipt, a copy of the website where it stated what the offer was, and an email of confirmation of my order. They offered a credit with Stack Social for $10 for future purchases.
That was not satisfactory and I wanted the Sam's eGift card as advertised. I would not recommend doing business with Stack Social as they do not provide what they offer completely. If I could give 0 stars, I would.
StackSocial are dishonest / untrustworthy
They are very hard up for money!
After proving to them the software they sold me will not load on my computer, they seem to want to rob me of payment.
I've begged them for a refund. I am a senior citizen that are taking advantage of. I have sent them email of pictures showing the software is incompatible with my computer. Will they give a refund? So far all they do is ignore me.
Because I can't give them ZERO STARS
StackSocial is Delightful!
Sorry, that so many had a negative experience with Stack social, but like this other person, I also had a positive experience, two in fact without any hiccups. I can't speak for the bad reviews but my review is honest and my experience with them.
They charge me $99 without permission as they saved my credit card on the system!
They charge credit card for trial offer even when you do not use it or claim it.
I did order something, and they offered 14 days trial for vault which wasn't used or claimed, and they charge me $99 without permission.
I had the same thing happen to me, they're sneaky.
Bad experience, dirty tech support
Pretty bad experience here and a warning for others. I placed an order for a drone with the warranty, and received a bad drone after waiting 3 weeks. I sent the drone in for the warranty repair and they did not repair and only sent me partial refund of the cost - not including the cost of the warranty.
The lady who was helping (olivia j.) strung me along for almost 7 weeks saying it definitely will be resolved. Then she did something really shady, she sent a link for a review and I gave her a positive review then she sent the email back saying sorry we can not do anything.
Well what a scam, she knew exactly what she was doing and because of her I am now trying to get the remaining balance reversed as I go on every review site to make sure other people know not to go with this company.
This has to be a fake review. There are too many that shown them to be untrustworthy and dishonest..
Do not buy from these liars and scam artists.
