Looks like I won't be getting anything... I never managed to get hired at Staples (though I was trying). Looks like any bus. but the ones on the approved list won't be getting one, due to 'abuse'.

well, guess I'll mail them my pay stub from target. :)


edit: annoyingly, you can only get 1450 offhand for answering everything :/

I guess I'll have to wait 5 weeks to get 1500. :(

Looks like I get to mail my check stub from Dell. I hope they take it since we don't get actual stubs, have to print them out online.

I went on the site today and it looks like they added another section called Portable Media Center. Looks like I'll be ordering Win XP today. :D

I still haven't got that email yet (it's my MSN account too, lol) but I did do it rather early on. I wonder if I'll see anything from MS soon.

The email doesn't say the pay stub has to be recent, I wonder if one from 2 years ago will do ;)

Portable Media Center works for me. I think the only difference in the way I completed the course was I clicked all 3 boxes on the left of the first couple slides.

Looks like you're screwed unless you actually work at a place that sells MS Mobile products...

Yea I got an email, Im not gonna do anything about it tho. I did this like 5-6 weeks ago, so hopefully my XP PRo is shipping out soon =/

If not, im gonna be pissed for wasting ~2.5 hours of my life in training, referrals, and looking at the rewards.

Do you realize how stupid that is? "Oh, I'm gonna be mad at microsoft because I was trying to fradulently get stuff from them, and now they're checking. It's all thier fault, I hate them"

You DID agree to a ToS when you registered. You didn't meet your end of the deal, so they don't have to fufill thiers.

All of the information I entered was true.

The only reason that I won't be going any further than this is because I don't work at any of the retailers that MS specified that you must work at in the email. My employer has nothing to do with MS products whatsoever, but there was nothing said about your place of employment having to sell MS Mobile products to reap the benefits of the deal when you signed up.

In other words, MS closed a loophole with this email. Drat.

It did specify the training and rewards were for retailers who sell thier products.

Has anyone recieved the products?

DONT tell me if you KNOW someone who has.. I could care less who you know. I only want people to say weather or not THEY actually recieved anything yet.

I gave my account to my friend who I helped get his employment verified. He works at Sears :p and a name/address/employment location change + sending in the paystub did the trick.

update: just got this e-mail....

Congratulations! We have verified your account.

Once your account has been verified and if prizes are in-stock you should receive your package within 2-4 weeks. If your prizes are in back-order then your prizes could take up to 8 weeks (or sometimes a little bit more) for delivery. Unfortunately our rewards work just like the rebate programs and we don't have a way to check what products are currently in-stock and which ones are in back-order. We greatly appreciate your patience throughout this process.



Sincerely,
Jesse

The Windows Mobile™ Training Support

So with any luck, I'll be posting back in 2-4 weeks :p
