SI scam: Has anyone recieved their football or book?

  • I fell for that SI Superbowl subscription scam. I know many of you did too which is why I am asking you your experience. Since I gave them my money all I received was the DVD, which I already had from a Pro Shop purchase.

    I continue to get crap magazines with nothing in them but I have never received any of the other goodies they promised.
    I don't even remember all the things I was supposed to get but I think there was a football and a book.

    I have sent 3 emails to SI asking about the promotion and they have never responded to me. In fact they don't even acknowledge that they have received my emails.

    Have any of you received any of the goodies OTHER THAN THE DVD?

    If not what can we all do to expose this scam and get the info out on the web that SI is a fraud?

  • Got my DVD a little over a month ago IIRC. The book came last week. Still waiting on the football.

    When did you order the package? My receipt says allow 6-12 weeks for delivery of the gifts from date of purchase. Have you tried calling them?

    I ordered it the first day I saw it advertised . probably the 1st or 2nd day it was offered. No book no football.

    The worst offenders of this are Facebook and Google. I get a Facebook spam email every other day, because I refuse to join facebook but they got my email address somehow. I also get a phone call from Google trying to get me to take some free something they are offering. Those calls are between 4 and 6 times a week.

    You really get phone calls that often? I get them occasionally. I found out my smartphone has a block function. Any time I get a solicitation, that number gets blocked. I'm sure that wouldn't stop a persistent telemarketer, but it makes me feel good, and it just might slow them down.

    The only reasons I didn't subscribe to that SI offer, I heard from a Ravens fan they had to wait quite awhile to get all their stuff last year, and I would be getting that crappy rag for a year. Hope you guys get all the XLVIII champions swag you got coming soon!

    I am on facebook and they press the issue a lot. They want 'as a security feature' to get my phone number which will be kept 'secure' and not be bothered by anyone. I call BS on that. They just want another way to bother me with their advertisements. Aint gonna happen. I keep getting one call from Orlando...I just ignore it because it changes every year. Only the phone number, not the BS.

  • I just got a postcard in the mail today from SI saying they were sorry for the delay on my free gift and it would be shipping within 30 days. I've received the DVD and book already.
