Seems to be working for me. Hmm...

The link is working but they have been out of glasses for some time. I went there again about a week ago and they have been out. Luckily I got in at the beginning. http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Has anybody actually received this!? I jumped through all the hoops two months ago, and still nothing!

I actually had forgotten all about it Gary, but no, I have not gotten mine as of yet either. Maybe they'll use the ol' "While supplies lasted" excuse. http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

Me neither.

It's interesting that the last five "free promotional offers" I've signed up for have been no-shows when it comes to receiving the merchandise.

On a hunch, I applied for the last three using an assumed name. Still no merchandise, but Lamont Cranston has been receiving quite a bit of junk mail at my home in the last few months. So I am left to wonder; did these people have any intention of sending some free widget, or do they simply prey on the allure of a "freebie" to harvest marketing information?

Damn ... that can't be legal; but how could you possibly prove intent in one of these cases?

As a similar consequence, though not bourbon society related, a friend of mine receives a ton of mail addressed to P.F. Lamingo.

I received an e-mail from BF the other day expressing their regret that they would be unable to fullfil their promise to send me the glass http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif. I guess the attorney's bill came in before they paid the glass maker http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/skep.gif

I got the email too. Did anyone get a shot glass?

their regret that they would be unable to fullfil their promise to send me the glass

Well now, doesn't that just blow http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif I feel like I've been had!
I never sign up for 'free stuff' because I don't want my email address sold to all those people that want to send me Viagra and home mortgage offers . But...I thought, gee 'an OF shotglass would be worth a little spam', so I signed up. Now it looks like I'll be getting the damn spam, without the shotglass!
That stinks,

I got an e-mail as well, but the entire body of the message is in HTML which links to an expired webpage, so there's nothing to read except the title: "An Apology to Friends of Old Forester"

No shotglass for me I guess. http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/skep.gif

I fixed the broken link---they had put a space in the HTML which screwed up the e-mail. Here's what they intended to send:
