Comments on: Lincoln offers free access to the NYT http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/03/18/lincoln-offers-free-access-to-the-nyt/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: davidh3 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/03/18/lincoln-offers-free-access-to-the-nyt/comment-page-1/#comment-26586 Mon, 16 May 2011 16:30:47 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=7680#comment-26586 Yes, I received the Lincoln offer pop up, responded to it accepting the offer, and nothing happened. I have never received an email confirming the complimentary offer. When I wrote emails to the Times, the customer service department confirmed that they were having problems with the program, but no resolution has ever occurred. When I called the Times, I was told I never received the offer and no help was provided. This whole thing is a frustrating, poorly executed flub. Left a terrible taste and a huge waste of my time trying to resolve the snafu.

It didn’t work and NY Times customer service is telling me I didn’t get the email. There was no email. This was a poorly executed ad campaign and no one at NY Times cares a whit.

Will they be sending another offer?
I don’t know how to recover deleted email.
Oh, woe is me!

Your subscription can’t expire in the middle of a period, because you buy subscriptions in four-week units. So relax. Your quota won’t reset until your subscription has expired.

I am curious. It doesn’t look like Safari or Firefox.

I feel pretty dumb.
