On Friday, we experienced technical difficulties and our forum went offline for 48 hours. As we know many of you—from consumers to businesses to enthusiasts—depend on Leasehackr, we sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.
Leasehackr was founded in 2015 initially as a hobby for our co-founders, @michael and @littleviolette, because there just wasn’t a website that approached car leasing in a useful and compelling way. We created Leasehackr to share the great opportunities that are possible when consumers lease in an informed, well-researched manner.
Since then, this community has grown to over 50,000 members and countless more guest visitors, facilitating thousands of transactions along the way. We could not have this community without the dedication, enthusiasm, and knowledge of our members.
Leasehackr has not accepted online advertising—preferring to keep a seamless look on the forum free of distractions, and instead charging a nominal monthly fee to registered dealer and broker representatives to help keep the site running. We feel such an approach keeps us independent, so that we can serve our niche of Leasehackrs who seek a certain type of deal that the general public might not obtain.
As we’ve grown, we’ve also incurred financial costs—including during this recent outage. So today we are launching the Leasehackr Technical Support Fund. Donations made to this fund will go towards technical support, server hosting fees, licenses, and other investments toward the reliability of this platform.
Your donations, no matter the amount, will be instrumental to keeping this platform healthy. If you believe in our mission, we’d greatly appreciate it if you would donate to our Technical Support Fund.
You can make a one-time donation or choose to contribute to this fund on a monthly basis at four different levels: $5/month, $10/month, $15/month, or $20/month. Members who donate will be recognized with a special badge next to their username. For those who wish to donate annually, Leasehackr’s official birthday is March 29, 2015, when the domain was registered.
Thank you for your support.
The Leasehackr Team
