Like many others I have read on these pages, I too fell victim to the Incentive Reward Centers appealing offer for a 40GB iPod. From all I have read, I trust that maybe someday I will see my due iPod. It is hard to say.

I will preface this by saying that it is frusterating that legitimate, good businesses (Blockbuster, USA Today, Columbia House, etc. are aligned with these guys). This is part of the reason I started in this endeavor to begin with... I trusted these companies.

I started filling out offers in late November, early December. I quickly went through the top offers on pages 1 and 2. In fact, I needed some of the stuff, and still use some memberships I joined. I thought it was a pretty good deal.

Page 3 caused some issues, because I did not need anything on the pages. I ended up signing up for the USA today offer. The next day, that offer was no longer on the 3rd page. And the credit never posted. I am not sure what happened... but I have not yet received a USA today, or did I get a bill. I can only assume that something technical happened.

In any event, a few "new" page three offers popped up. I thought some of them looked good, so I signed up. First for the webhosting (which posted soon after). I also decided to "Xoom" money to Sri Lanka to help with the relief effort. It took me a few days to find a person to send it too, but the local church helped out and my money was on it's way. Instantly.

Xoom turns out to be a pretty neat service, however it is not in all countries yet. Anyway. I was done. Smiling because I knew I had sent money to a good cause, and because I knew this was my final obligation to receive my new 40GB iPod.

Well, that was weeks ago. The website NEVER updated my 6th and final offer. It shows I went there... but never posted that i completed the offer. Incentive Reward Center is dangling the carrot... but just out of reach.

Well, I reasoned there must be a phone number or someone to call. I had already sent 5 emails by this point over a month span with absolutley NO response. I found an 800 number, the greeting sounds nice... but NOBODY calls back. I even found a name and number of a Customer Service Rep who helped someone else... she has not contacted me.

I am now getting very bummed out. I had my hopes set on this iPod. I spent around $200 in stuff (some I needed, some not) and I expected to get my due reward. Instead I get a website that shows 5 out of 6 completes... and NO phone calls or emails back.

I even sent the supporting documentation - XOOM receipt and a copy of the top offers page 3. I might add that the Top offers on page three that I have to choose from today does NOT INCLUDE the Xoom offer or the Internet Hosting. It seems the necessary steps to complete each layer change.

Just like the USA Today offer, the Xoom and Hosting are now removed from the offers. That is also concerning. The only glimmer of hope I have that I am still "OK" is that I cut and pasted a copy of the 3rd page offers into a word document that shows that indeed, at one point Xoom was a top offer.

I am not sure if this rant will help, but if someone has any ideas, I am open. I like to believe the best in people, and I still think that I can get my iPod based on reading other emails. In the end it will be hard to say if it was worth it. We'll see if anyone from this company contacts me. I will keep this up to date, and let you know how I fare.

I am now afraid that my 90 day time limit will run out, and that will be the next "hook" that gets me. "Sorry Mr. Jeesse, you did not complete your offers in time". I hope that is not the case.

Thanks for reading,

Jesse

Better late than never...

It took me awhile to update this... only because life caught up with me. It has been crazy.

Anyway, the punchline is that this company did send me a 40GB ipod... it was new, and it works great.

These guys are legitimate... but you need to stay on them to get it done. I think they are understaffed; and their technology is not bullet proof (ie: the deals you do online do not always register properly).

They will come through for you... don't give up.

If you have not yet signed up with them, I would say "don't". It does work, it is legitimate... but I spent around $250 and ALOT of time and worry. In the future, I would just buy the item.

YEEE HAAA - A Call Back!!!

AUTHOR: Jesse - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Friday, January 28, 2005
SO, here is the thing. Not two minutes after I pulled the trigger on the note above (the very long note, I might add). I received a call back from Tina. Very friendly, very nice, had all my information.

Not only was she calling to tell me that I qualified... she said my iPod was already shipped... and gave me a tracking number.

Evidently they got my emails and voice mails... and never called me back. She also send an email was sent to me indicating that my iPod was on the way... but I looked and I do not have any emails.

I must say I am surprised - and pleased. I hope it shows up next week in working order. If / when it does I will send out another update.

One thing I can say is BE PERSISTANT. DO NOT GIVE UP. My sense is that these guys are legitimate, just slow to respond.

The number that I called, and finally received a call back on was : 866-301-7260. Same number other people indicated got a call back. I also called and left a message on this number: 561-306-1915. Both of these numbers I found on this site previously. I think the 561 number gets a better response.

Be professional and nice... and they will be helpful to you.

Hope this helps. I will let you know when my Saga is finally over.
