You'll get crazy newbies who call 3x a day for 2 weeks straight, and post argumentative paranoia demanding the rebate is guaranteed, in writing, by certified mail, on their doorsteps, by tomorrow evening. Then all the other newbie sheep freak out, and THEY call 3x a day, for 2 weeks straight, and the paranoia explodes. And suddenly everyone's carting their paper back to the retailer demanding a refund.
All those who CALLED to confirm.... Your dad should have silently slept that night.
Signed up for a Chicago server yesterday with the 30 promo - still worked. I'm not sure why some people are having bad experiences, but mine has been perfect. Within 10 minutes of ordering, my server was provisioned and I was able to connect. When I didn't like my OS choice, I redeployed a new OS in about 5 minutes as well. So far I'm very satisfied!
...It's like playing the lottery. Did you get your issues fixed? Then you are one of the winners. It's not fair that you taunt the losers, however, since they have subsidized your VPS.
This is definitely a case of "you get what you pay for". When it works, it works decently well. However:
Uplink speed is significantly constrained compared to another VPS I have in the same datacenter (spotvps)
Their "central backup" facility is buggy. I made a change to my VPS which I wanted to revert - so I told it to revert to a central backup image I had made previously. It turned out that despite their system reporting a successful backup, the backup image was incomplete so I had to re-install from scratch!
One day I found the VPS would not boot. It took about half a day after submitting a ticket before they fixed the problem so that the VPS could start again.
All that aside, you can't beat this price...just make sure you know what you are getting
