I'm not gonna be greedy.. it was a JOKE!
01-23-2001, 01:15 PM
To alleviate my guilt, I actually tried to get a quote from them. I did get that error message. So, I don't feel so bad now :P
01-23-2001, 01:20 PM
Heck Yes - Got Mine!
Lady was so sweet on the phone, she apologized about
the servers being down and that they ran out of phone
cards, so she would send me an amazon.com G/C instead.
She said that the servers are blocking out all requests
and there is not ETA on the fix.

Whew! Just got home from class, and tried it - still working! I'm glad I was finally home to get one of these deals.
01-23-2001, 01:30 PM
i'm on hold...
hope i get one!!!
01-23-2001, 01:35 PM
$10 GC coming in a couple of days by email...
asked for email.. name.. and zip code
01-23-2001, 01:35 PM
They may be catching on. The CSR asked about the page on which I got the error message. I pooh-poohed something about providing my license number and other pertinent information. She then asked for my e-mail address and said I'd be receiving an e-mail from them with "information." When I asked if this was a quote form to fill out she got somewhat testy and said I'd see what was in it when I received it. They must be getting bombarded.
Some people just don't work well under pressure.

I guess they've already realized something's going on. :P
01-23-2001, 01:42 PM
I got Marci, and then my friend got her too -- I am pretty sure she is the only one answering the phone or else there are just a few people...Either way they are getting slammed right now for sure -- Just look at the number of views this post has over 200 (Thats a lot of calls in the space of just 15 min or so).
Be careful everyone, she/they will probably only last another 15-30 min before it is dead!!!
01-23-2001, 01:44 PM
no free amazon gc for me... :(
01-23-2001, 01:58 PM
STILL WORKS AS OF 1:45 PST! GO GO GO! I just said I visited the site earlier this morning.
01-23-2001, 02:24 PM
Works as of 14:09 PST
In the voice prompts - press #1, wait on hold x 10 min and they will ask what part of the quote did you get the error message. I just said, "When I pressed to submit it" and she accepted it.
01-23-2001, 02:25 PM
Site is back up and working, but they do seem to have some decent rates on insurance. Now I just gotta go find out how many of my 3 speeding tickets are still on my record :-( Anyone know how to do that? Does the DMV give out those records?
01-23-2001, 03:22 PM
They were cool when I called.. only asked for email address.. that must have been before everyone else started calling.. GREAT FIND!
01-23-2001, 04:23 PM
Twilight, you can usually contact your DMV and they will, for a fee, give you a copy of your violation record.
01-23-2001, 08:16 PM
I just tried, and they said sorry but they ran out of the Sprint phone cards. They did not even mention the Amazon GCs.
Oh well, that is great for everyone who got in on this one.

Anybody get theirs yet? The lady I spoke with said it would be mailed out within 24 hrs...
01-25-2001, 05:28 AM
nope. but the woman told me it would take 2-3 days. i tried to get a quote after it was back up and working just to alleviate some of the guilt, but they don't offer insurance in MA. oh well.

01-25-2001, 01:51 PM
When I called in, I talked to a lady. She asked for my email addy, first name, and zip code. She didn't ask for my residential addy. Has anyone gotten an email from them?
01-29-2001, 08:08 PM
Anyone get the GC yet?
01-29-2001, 08:34 PM
I haven't even gotten an email from them.
01-29-2001, 08:38 PM
Nothing here either, I doubt we'll ever get it. Maybe we should email them.
01-29-2001, 09:03 PM
I havent got any gift certificate either, did anyone even get an e-mail about ti yet?
01-30-2001, 09:25 AM
I'm getting pissed.. I actually did get the error when I went to their site and I haven't heard jack from them.. I'm about to email those bastards and tell them I want a 50 dollar GC.. (sometimes demanding gets you more, sometimes it gets you hung up on.. i'll take my chances). =0)
01-30-2001, 10:30 AM
Tell us if it works.
count me as gettin nothing too
01-30-2001, 03:53 PM
I don't know if the CSR was givin me BS or not...
"Ok, whats your first name and email address?"
"*****, [email protected]
"*insert story on how i was expecting a gc for amazon*"
"Ok. I'll forward this information to the corporate offices(?) because we don't handle these types of complaints here. You have yourself a nice day"
"Alright, thank you very much"
SOOOO...what do you guys think?
