Any body get their free tool yet?

Just curious. It seems like it's been awhile. I wonder if I signed up for 2 tons of junk mail at a bogus site. I though I checked it out pretty thoroughly. Can't even remember what the choices were for tools.

I got a card in the mail from Bosch that if you came to their show, they were giving away free drill bits.

I think they need a little marketing help.

I haven't got my Bosch auger bit either. Nor the recip. blade that Lenox promised to send. The only thing I have gotten is Irwin "blue" utility knife blades. They've sent a pack with all three requests.

Bosch had another offer for a free something. Only after I filled in the information did they say they were out of stock. Pretty crappy IMHO.

I sent an e-mail to Bosch. It was firm but polite. I did receive a response from customer service. They have forwarded my letter on to there corporate offices. Will have to see if I get any response from them. Maybe we all need to send them an e-mail voicing our dissatisfaction with their promotion.
