Online Orders:

2/27/14- 3pm PST - They are sending the code for Online Order. Good luck.
True. Just received all five codes for the online purchase of Sunday. Redeemed it with a different email address. Now waiting for the Netflix code. 6:48PM Received all five Netflix Codes Feb 27 & redeemed all the codes without any problem.

Gmail users: Check your Promotions tab. My order confirmation / shipping confirmation emails came to my Primary inbox but the codes came to my Promotions folder.

Code will email in next 48 hours from 2/26/14 1pm PST according to the RS CSR.

RadioShack says if you placed an order before the terms will change you will still get codes. This is according to their posts on Facebook and Twitter (links to Twitter responses #1 [twitter.com], #2 [twitter.com], and #3 [twitter.com]).
-Codes from my order from Sun, Feb 23 1AM CST were received on Thu, Feb 27 5PM CST / 3PM PST as stated in red above. - pineapplite


Redeeming codes on the Promo Card site:

Website is now back up! Checked 2/28 at 11:15AM CST.

How to redeem:

1. Enter the 12 digit Pin # from RS receipt here https://thepromocard.com/radioshack/netflix/.

Remember to enter the code EXACTLY THE WAY IT APPEARS ON YOUR RECEIPT. Use all caps and use the dash symbol. If you use lowercase and/or no dash, it will say invalid.

Note: *RS pin # must be redeemed no later than two weeks after date of qualified purchase.*

2. You will receive a follow-up email with a Netflix activation code as soon as possible (currently appears to be 48 hours) to redeem your reward through Netflix.

3. Redeem the new Netflix activation code here [netflix.com]
Note: *Netflix activation code must be redeemed no later than 4/22/14*

WARNING: Do not use the same email address for multiple codes. The site now blocks your code if it sees your email address used twice already and will not let you attempt to reuse the code. (as of Tuesday afternoon)

Well this isn't good... Per the terms of this promotion, each person is limited to 2 redemptions. Your promotion code has been blocked for further use. If you believe this has been done in error, please contact our Customer Support
Tuesday Night - Site back up, but limiting to 2 redemptions per person - It is 2 redemption codes per email address, so after every 2 redemptions use a different email address. (Stylingal)
Error received when entering 3rd code "Well this isn't good... Per the terms of this promotion, each person is limited to 2 redemptions. Your promotion code has been blocked for further use. If you believe this has been done in error, please contact our Customer Support"


Note: I was able to redeem a "limit 2 and is now blocked" code today using a different email address. You may want to give yours another shot. (Not sure if the alternate email address is required, but why risk it?)


Note: Their system seems to be handling the +1 GMail trick incorrectly; the + is shown as a space on the confirmation page, and no "Congratulations!" confirmation email is received. To be safe, use different email addresses or use the Gmail "dot" trick.


The 3 limit restriction has been imposed by the promocode at the specific behest of Radio Shack. if you need the restriction limited, you should call Radio Shack and let them know that the 3 limit restriction makes no sense when you are allowed to buy 10 items on line. Radio Shack will not lift that restriction unless they receive many calls from customers. Feed back your comment on this thread after you call them.

Radio Shack, Phone Number, 800-843-7422 , then Press 9


You need to call the contact number below to get the two items per e-mail address restriction lifted. the person said I would need to give him the codes over the phone; I gave him one but said that I don't trust the security of him or his web site. If more callers call and request he may lift the restriction. there is no wait time, he picked up the phone right away. He couldn't understand my point so more people need to call

In-Store purchases:

FYI: The promocard site is now accepting RS B&M receipt codes (from yesterday 2/24) that have not been previously entered. I received the "pls wait 48 hrs" email, and used a diff email per every 2 RS codes entered as not sure if restriction has been lifted yet.


JUST RECEIVED MY 5 Netflix CODES from my instore purchases Sunday. I validated them at 2pm PST on Sunday as well, all 5 codes stacked into my Netflix acct just now. When you check your billing history you will see a (dot) for each pending promo minus 1. For example I show 4 dots becuz one is applied and used as of this next cycle. Hope that makes sense.

Check your junk mail folder as the codes can be routed in there.

Do not discuss or request how to generate codes. And posts along those lines will be removed.

Radio Shack Feedback
If everyone would post their RadioShack experience on
https://www.facebook.com/RadioShack


1: They WILL NOT PRICEMATCH A PRICE THAT YOU SHOW THEM ON YOUR PHONE! You need to have the physical ad with you. HOWEVER, if you don't, they can pull up the competitor's ad (Best Buy, in this case) online and look, OR call the store. How do I know? Because one of the people that sold me the phones hadn't done a price match before, so she had to read through all of their steps. In the steps it says that "if no physical ad is present, you may look up the competing ad online, or call the store and verify the price with a salesperson"

2: See if they'll order in more LG440 phones. 2 of the 3 stores said that they'd put in an order for more and call me when they got in. The deal is good until March, so you'll have plenty of time to stack those codes.

3: When checking out in store, look at the PIN pad, it will show the phone, then a line item mentioning 6 Months of Netflix. If you don't see this line item, don't pay - it means the associate didn't ring you up correctly or for some reason the phone didn't quality.



What to do I do with the phone now?
  1. Use it
  2. Trade the phone back in to RS for a $5 credit through 2/28/14. Check out thread here for more info.
  3. Keep in glove box like that 'mini shovel' in your trunk
  4. Open box, use charger, most of these phones have micro USB Chargers, These are good for almost all Android Smartphones and Mophie juice packs for iPhone
  5. Sell it on CL
  6. Donate to a shelter (Keep in mind, donating activated phones might not be the best idea for liability reasons.)
  7. Throw it on the ground!
    (j/k. Don't actually do this.)
Other ideas (if you get an Android phone): Home phone using CSIPSimple and VOIP.ms (or any other SIP provider), XBMC Remote, Chromecast Remote, Tinycam Monitor, Mini Home Tablet, yoyo@home, etc.


Thread Summary thanks 0DealMaster0

Sunday Morning (2/23) - The beginning


On Sunday morning Radio Shack (RS) started a promotion that gave customers 6 months of netflix service (value of $48) when they purchase a no-contract or contract phone from several major carriers. The deal went live online first (as stores didn’t open until 10am EST) and many people were able to buy Kyocera Coasts for $9.99, Samsung Entro’s for $14.99, and Kyocera Event’s for $19.99. Orders were limited to 3 of any type of phone per order and 10 total phones per order. The Coasts sold out very quickly as they represented the best value. RS said they would email customers a code that could be entered at ThePromoCard.com (TPC) which would then generate another code that could be used on netflix to give customers 6 months of service. Users of Slickdeals (SD) speculated on several key issues including whether you could add multiple netflix codes on one account, thus giving you multiple years of service.

Sunday 10am - In store purchases begin

Customers begin to flood RS stores as they open, attempting to buy phones using competitor price matches (bringing the cost of some phones to $5) and trading in phones they just bought for RS gift cards as part of a recycling program they offer. Reports came in that many stores were requiring activations on phones, even though the RS terms of service specifically said they were not required. Some RS employees were also stating that netflix codes would be limited to one per account and that price matches couldn’t be combined with the netflix promo. However, the RS website stated the complete opposite of what some employees were stating, which led to a lot of frustration and confusion amongst SD users. RS employees were also neglecting to apply the promo to some peoples orders as the codes were not automatically applied by the system.

Sunday - No netflix codes

Many online users had received order confirmation emails for their phone purchases, but knew they had to wait for the phones to ship before they would receive their codes to be entered on TPC (clearly stated on RS website). Customers that purchased phones in stores received their TPC codes on their receipts and were able to enter them immediately. However, they recieved emails stating it would take 48 hours for the netflix codes to be sent to them. So at this point no one has received a code for Netflix.

Monday - Cancelled Orders

Users begin to report that some or all of their online orders are being cancelled. Those that still had open orders still have no idea if their orders will get cancelled, if they will get codes if their orders go through, and if they can apply multiple netflix codes to one account.

Monday Night - Change in terms

After hours of confusion and mixed information from RS and not a single person receiving a valid code for 6 months of Netflix, users were starting to get upset. Around 7:30pm EST users began to notice a change in the RS terms of service for this promo. It now stated that it only applies to phones over $29.99. Users with orders from sunday are now speculating as to whether their orders will be grandfathered in with the old terms of service.

Around 9pm EST a user reported that netlfix codes were being generated automatically from TPC for anyone that entered it after that time. By 9:50 a SD user had figured out that the URL being generated by TPC could be manipulated, giving anyone a valid netflix code. Instructions were provided on SD and within minutes users were generating dozens of codes and applying them to their netflix accounts, listing them on ebay, or just posting them on SD. The general consensus is that codes that were maliciously generated were depleting the pool of available codes and that eventually the codes would run out. Also, anyone who purchased phones online or entered their RS receipt codes into TPC prior to 9pm were essentially having their netflix codes stolen by this TPC exploit.

By 10pm the TPC site stopped generating netflix codes, but by then many users had already given themselves anywhere from 5-20 years of netflix service.

At around 11:30pm radio shack sent out shipping notifications to many of their customers whose orders had not been cancelled. So now customers have no idea if the phones they purchased on Sunday will come with netflix promo codes or not, since the TPC site appears to be depleted of all valid codes.

Tuesday Night - Site back up, but limiting to 2 redemptions per person - It is 2 redemption codes per email address, so after every 2 redemptions use a different email address. (Stylingal)
Error received when entering 3rd code "Well this isn't good... Per the terms of this promotion, each person is limited to 2 redemptions. Your promotion code has been blocked for further use. If you believe this has been done in error, please contact our Customer Support"

all the below above information entered by desi_babu_2010. (and may or may not be correct.

As of ~5pm PST on 2/25/14.
Those who were asked to wait 48 hours are now getting the codes sent via email.
Most people are reporting that:
>the codes are working
>the codes are stacking (i personally have 5 dots on my account)
>no limit per email adress.
>codes sent to Hotmail went to Junk mail

To those that did online purchase (either Saturday late nite or sunday morning). It is still unclear on if people have recieved the codes.

FAQ:
Q.Is the deal alive?
A. Yes, but the terms have changed making it less desirable. Now u have to buy a $29.99 or more phone ONLINE or buy any priced phone in store but must activate the in store phone.

Q. How can I tell how long I am paid till?
A. Still a bit unclear, but if u look into your account details on yor NF page under billing , you will see some {"dots"}. A dot will typically = ~$47 or ~6 months or service. 4 dots = 2years.

all the above information entered by desi_babu_2010. (and may or may not be correct)


HAS ANYONE RECEIVED A VALID CODE FOR IN-STORE PURCHASES?
Q: The website said wait 48 hours. Then d-bags took advantage of the system. Has anyone received a code from entering in the receipt code from an in-store purchase yet? Please post here if yes.
Answer 1: Bought a phone in store Monday around 2PM, entered the code online right away, received my code around 7 PM on Tuesday and successfully entered it on Netflix!!
Answer 2: Email received Tuesday 7 eastern, with valid Netflix code from a $10 in store purchase and promocode entry made on Sunday.
Answer 3:multiple emails sent to gmail trick all arrived 3:44 PM Pacific time. One sent to Hotmail found in Junk folder. All stacked in one account.

REFUNDS: At 12:27PM today(Tuesday, 2/25), I went to another local Radio Shack store and successfully returned two $10 prepaid phones.
The manager didn't say a word and gave me back my cash within 60 seconds. I thanked him and left. As I was leaving, another employee
asked me if I was having issue redeeming the Netflix code. I said yes. Apparently she also fell victim to the crime committed by some dishonest
Slickdeal readers. She bought 1 phone and the got the code on the receipt. After entering the code on TPC website, she got a Netflix code
immediately. However, Netflix's website indicated that it was already used. Frown

FREE Calls with magicJack question.
Does magicJack give you a phone number for free?
I'm currently using Tango Messenger with GV number.
yep...simple registration, no payment or personal info required at last check. my phone number was issued immediately. I believe the only caveat with calls is that you can only receive incoming calls from numbers you have already dialed previously. It isn't an ideal solution for craigslist selling, but for me it's been fantastic. Hope this helps.

hmm...that's a good question. I suppose that might depend on the country you're attempting to call and their infrastructure. I don't have any international contacts so I've never tried...to be honest I really don't know, and I wouldn't want to give you false information. Wish I could be more help on this front.

Quote from luckydog97 View Post :
I picked up one when it was at $14...my curiosity got the best of me. I had to see what $14 can get you these days. I have to say I've been very impressed thus far...

- Currently using Rocket Player app...the phone accepted my 32GB microsd with no issues, and music is crisp and clear with quality earbuds. Also, with eco mode enabled and apps closed, it's been getting excellent runtimes as an MP3 player

- Currenty using NavFree USA...unlimited free offline maps and voice guidance downloads. Have been using it few days...so far the app and phone work great. Basically turns the event into a $14 (or now $20) standalone touchscreen GPS...hard to beat in it's own right.

- Currently using Talk Free by Magic Jack...I've been making (and receiving) free phone calls over wifi for over a week. Free phone service anywhere I have wifi for $14 (now $20)...again, very hard to beat

...voice search and browser work fine, most apps work fine aside from 3d intensive games, and the limited storage and RAM are easily worked around with a microsd card and careful app management, respectively.

Perhaps I'm easy to please, but I think the Event is a prime choice for this deal...they regularly sell for $30+ on ebay, so if you don't want it, sell it and pocket $10 and 6 months of Netflix. If anyone want any more info, PM me and I'll pass along the info if I have it.

* Haven't attempted to root or unlock it yet, as it seems to be working fine as is for my needs as is, and it is a CDMA only phone and I'm on a GSM carrier.
is there something similar to talk free by magic jack where you get a number for wifi calling free that is good for craigslist buying and selling?

I'm on the $11.99 family plan cuz I share my account with 3 other family members (which allows 5 streams at the same time) so during the chromecast special instead of 3 months free I got like 2 months free & a tiny discount on the third month. It looked on my account like they treated the free code like 3x $7.99 gift cards & applied accordingly... this looks very tempting I have only one RS in a 100 miles radius so it's all gonna be what this ONE store has Frown

EDIT: Oh wait I see I can maybe order 10 of these online for store pickup tomorrow night after midnight & get in on this deal even if my story has bumpkis when I go in Sun am provided of course these will work....Do we know yet if these will work? http://www.radioshack.com/product...ndSrc=cart

not that I've run across so far...however the TextPlus Free + Calls app gives you a free number that you can send and receive texts free to anyone, and make free calls to anyone that also has a TextPlus free app.

* You can make calls with TextPlus Free + Calls to anyone, but it costs per minute, I believe $0.02/min if you buy credits.

* Between Talk Free by Magic Jack and TextPlus Free + Calls apps, you can make free calls and texts to anyone over wifi, albeit via different numbers.

* Google voice is always an option for masking your number, but for completely free services without a cell plan and existing phone number the above is the best I've found

I'm sorry I dunno how to check...it was just very confusing for me to seee how they applied a 3 month free code to my $11.99 plan account vs the reg $7.99 & when I went thru my account billing history I could see the 2 months where I wasn't charged anything & a month were I got a $.02 credit lol but the 2 free months didn't even show like a $11.99 charge less $11.99 credit they just literally didn't BILL me 2 months & I had to really look at my history to see the gap to know oh ok there's my free credit! So yeah this is gonna real fun to stack & apply like 60 x $7.99 months & convert to my $11.99 plan would be like 45 months free for 10 phones or $100 Smilie

These are non-contract phones so they don't care about activation, no commission.
Think Dollar General Tracfones.

what happens if we redeem the Netflix code then return the phone ? think they would notice ?




Wouldn't that be a little bit sleazy?

How does their in-store pricing work? For like this Kyocera will the in-store price be the $20 that you have to add to the cart to see? http://www.radioshack.com/product...ndSrc=cart
