There should be an icon for "crossing your fingers".
The submittal page said the survey ends March 19th, and the GC's should be delivered in about a week. Now that's what I call response time!

Please, sign up for one only you greedy fools.
03-15-2001, 05:34 AM
Woo hoo! Thanks for the link. I hope it comes...
03-15-2001, 05:51 AM
I wonder WHEN they will kill this...
03-15-2001, 06:00 AM
Too late...the site now says that they have all the information they need...
03-15-2001, 06:07 AM
Man I just made that one. Got in on it around 9am sharp.

Ding-Dong The Deal Is DEAD
03-15-2001, 06:34 AM
I only made it by 30 minutes! I hope it comes...
03-15-2001, 07:26 AM
I think I may have been the last one in. I filled it out, sent it in, and the guy next to me clicked to do it and it was dead. Yikes....
03-15-2001, 10:17 AM
Well if they actually do come through with this offer, I'll be a rich man, hope they are stackable :)
03-15-2001, 01:23 PM
OK i normally don't complain, but now I do have a complaint. People just out of courtesy could you please only sign up for one? I have no money to buy stuff with, and if it wasn't for sites like this my kids wouldn't have had a very Merry Christmas. When something like this comes along, especially so close to my kid's birthday, I would love to jump on it, but I can't because someone who was over-enthusiastic signed up 12 times and now the deal is dead. I know it is sooooo tempting since they make it soo easy to cheat, but come on, this was a great oppurtuntiy and I am sure that I am not the only one who missed out.
Its like that $10 Macy's scooter deal. I only wanted 1, not 50 to resell. Not everyone has $500 to spend at a whim.

hey man.. dont worry about it.. there will be more.. if mine actually comes through i'll post it =) if you keep coming to the site and gimme yer email when i post it i'll give it to you... take care and happy birthday to your kid
03-16-2001, 08:49 AM
Don't worry about it, but Thanks for the offer, definently. I know other offers will come by, It just irratates me that some people totally take advantage of stuff like this. It is things like that which cause companies to stop making offers, and then everyone loses out.

03-16-2001, 03:47 PM
I want one too please..., in case the hp survey doesnt open back up. I read in FW that they've opened it back up but the 2nd page is having some problems. I'm going to keep trying to get in on it but if i dont, I would really appreciate it. Thanks.
Although I dont have kids...I'm a college student....reason enough? =)

Has anyone gotten the AMAZON gife certificate yet??
03-21-2001, 03:09 PM
"Thank you very much for your willingness to participate,
however this study is now complete!"
maybe next time
03-21-2001, 04:22 PM
nope, no gc yet. but i'm betting it will
03-21-2001, 05:08 PM
I completed the survey early in the AM EST, still no gc yet.
03-28-2001, 10:18 AM
I'm still waiting...anyone get the GC??
03-28-2001, 10:51 AM
they closed it down. got a thanks for visiting page.
03-28-2001, 01:53 PM
Didn't they say they would be sending out the GC's about a week after the survey finished?
03-28-2001, 01:57 PM
yes - and that was to be after the 29th if I remember correctly.
03-29-2001, 06:28 AM
They emailed us , and said we took this survey unofficially. Everyones pissed! NO GC's!
03-29-2001, 10:39 AM
did anyone who took it not get the e-mail? or are they giving this excuse to everyone...
03-29-2001, 11:23 AM
Damn, that sucks. No GC's for us. Nice tracking software from Intel, though.
To whom it may concern:
You recently took part in an online survey that was authored by Intel Corporation and managed/maintained on Intel's behalf by SurveySite, Inc. - Intel's online research partner. This survey was part of a research program Intel undertook to improve the experience of visitors to its Home Computing website http://www.intel.com/home. The study was designed such that an invitation to take part in the survey "popped up" to randomly-selected visitors of the Intel Home Computing site at the site itself. Those who agreed to participate clicked on a link that took them to the online survey hosted at a site maintained by SurveySite.
Based on tracking software that SurveySite uses, we were able to confirm that you accessed the survey by clicking on a survey link that had been "lifted" from SurveySite's code by an unauthorized person and posted to a website not authorized by Intel. Because you did not access the survey through the Intel.com/home site, we will not be able to fulfill the $20 amazon.com gift certificate incentive.
Please accept our thanks for your participation and note that we did attain our desired goal of completed surveys from Intel Home Computing website visitors as of the beginning of last week, therefore, data collection efforts at the site have ceased.

that's so ripe. Intel are bastards, for they knew thousands of people were going to fill it out, and they could claim the same reason. they're just exploiting the thousands of deal hunters who will spend 5 minutes for the chance of a $20 amazon gc. next time, dont do it :)
03-29-2001, 01:56 PM
I emailed them back when I got the letter, asking to have them remove my survey from their results. I also asked them to show me proof of it when they did. I'm not sure exactly how they'd be able to show me proof, but I just wanted to be an @ss about it since they were being one to me. :)
