    So Spot called me and said the second operator was wrong.
    The 50% rebate lets you upgrade a device, but the 100% rebate is for adding another device and plan.

    Since my policy is up for renewal, any new devices people are liking better, DeLorme?

    Read about this new "Free Spot 3 to existing customers" rebate (with active service plan) here: LINKY

    If your plan is up for renewal soon and you have an older SPOT and are paying the extra $50 for tracking now, then I see no reason not to upgrade to the clearly better SPOT 3.

    I called to activate my second Gen 2 for my son to use. The agent on the other side was very helpful.
    He had me activate it online with basic only then log out. He then turned on the Tracking for free. Easy smeazy.
    So first year free tracking. Then it will simply charge like normal when it renews. :clap

    Just renewed my service in DEC and paid Jan 6 but NO discount. I called SPOT and ask if there was a $50 discount and Nathalie said NO!

    Do you have to call in to add tracking and use a discount code? The website didn't have a place to put in a code.

    I tried and the website crashes with the following message: 'Promocode is either invalid, expired, reached its maximum limit or not valid for your region or device type.'

    Might try calling them to see if I can get a discount for free tracking.

    tonight I sent an email via their webpage (contact us) asking for a possible rebate, coupon or discount that I could apply before my renewal that ends this month...within 3hrs, they replied back with a $49.99 credit to acct. :clap

    I got an used SPOT 3GEN, now I'm trying to create my account and activate for first time.
    I tried the promo code from twitter 3000GEN3 and TRACKSPOT, but no luck, if I want to check out with any promo code the page shows a system error.


    Are these codes only for renewals?
    Any ideas?
    Thank you

    Honestly...I'm not sure. Should have been a renewal. However, I found that I wasn't getting any of my text messages or bread crumbs from yesterday and discovered when I called customer service that I'd been disconnected because my credit card changed and I forgot to update it. So...I think I actually activated.

    Hey, look at your screen shot. It says extreme tracking is $0.00. If you ignore the error message, is that not what you were looking for? What does it say your total cost comes to?
