    If you're about to sign up for a new SPCS account -- hang on a sec!

    Sign up for an account at IngDirect.com first. Put in $25 or whatever.

    NOW, go to http://ingdirect.com/sprint to get 16% off your recurring
    rates. The 16% applies to most or all voice plans, Vision plans,
    equipment replacement program,... So far as I can tell, it applies to
    everything.

    Unfortunately, this only applies to a new line of service. As soon as
    I'm out of contract, if this deal is still on, I'm going to avail myself
    of this deal!

    That site is an employees-only site. And so is the discount.

    Sorry, but that's not correct -- which is the first time I've seen you
    err!

    This was a promotion sent to all INGDirect.com customers.

    Interesting -- I just tried the link I posted, and it's now broken.

    But I'm sitting here, looking at the ING Direct flyer that was mailed to
    me. It says, verbatim, "Sprint is offering a 16% discount on select PCS
    Services to all ING DIRECT Customers. Go to ingdirect.com/sprint to
    learn more."

    And I saw an across-the-board 16% discount on everything when I visited
    that URL last week. Hmmmmmmm... Perhaps someone at ING Direct screwed
    up? Big time?

    It asks me for an id/password and says EMPLOYEES only, too.

    I didn't deny that. But if you try to go to that link, you're going to
    get an employee login screen. That's what happened when I went there.

    And other sites are reporting that Sprint is admitting the postcard was
    sent in error, intended only for employees.

    That's odd. Wasn't broken for me. Just gave me a login screen.

    I think you misunderstand. I wasn't denying that the mailing went out.
    Only that it was *mistakenly* sent out.

    I don't know if I'd call it "big time" as a screwup. But yeah, it was a
    screwup.
