Ooops! Went to correct a typo and deleted the post by mistake . . . If I can remember what I said, I’ll try to re-write:
I have no knowledge of a give-away, but someone else mentioned something similar a couple of weeks ago. Their salesperson also used this as a ‘closing’ tool to nudge them over the edge and convince them to buy. He said all they had to do was go to the Sansa site and sign up for the free card.
At the time, I searched the Sansa site for anything like a rebate, free with purchase offer, whatever but couldn’t find anything. If you are saying now that you have documentation that there was a limited time offer and that the time limit has expired, I would take it back to the store and ‘encourage’ them to pony up the free card on their own. You were mis-led into buying the player with this extra incentive (intentionally or un-intentionally).
Here’s the other thread I was mentioning:
Hmmm . . . Kinda sounds like the same sales guy.
