    Limited Time SPOT Gen3 $50 rebate

    Hi all, the new SPOT Gen3 is out, better features, more tracking....

    for a limited time there is a $50 rebate for existing customers, I am considering the upgrade, the SPOT I currently have was great on my last trip, my wife was happy to "keep an eye on me".

    Here is the link http://www.findmespot.com/Gen3Rebate...heet_FINAL.pdf

    Word of caution.

    When you sign up for service, it is "Auto Renew" unless you change your preference on their web site. The last time I tried to sign up w/o auto renew they would do it. It was up to me to cancel the auto renew.

    I passed.

    Poor business model for their customers, good for them in the short term.

    I use my debit card that I have the bank replace every six months with a new number so the auto renew doesn't work.

    I just phone and cancel it if I don't want it.

    Not really sure why this would even be an issue. However, to each his own.

    Anyway, thanks for the heads-up for everyone so they are clear before going into it.

    given that you have to be an active customer to get this rebate, they may already know about the auto-renewal piece.

    Spot Messenger

    I have the original Spot Messenger as well and appreciate the extra layer of safety knowing that my wife (or first responders) can check on my whereabouts should I not check in by phone at the end of a leg or return.

    Good luck with Spot. They called because my card was "expired" and threatened collection action on the "auto renew". The guy was so nasty that I hung up on him. Called back and finally got a supervisor who agreed to make it all go away.
