RAC PETROL SCAM

Just found out that if you arnt on the net and dont have an email address you cant claim the free petrol from RAC, Found out by old couple up the road dont have anything to do with the net and dont want to, got insurance and breakdown so thats £100 in petrol, but were told if they cant get on the net then sorry cant help, fair point is someone can do it for them but thats pestering someone else which they dont want to do, Scam or what whats your views:ph43r:

Seeing scams when they aint there?

Not a scam, simply rules to comply with for the offer. You could use the analogy that phone or postal competitions are similar because you have to buy a stamp or make a phone call.

RAC will comply with the offer subject to individuals abiding by rules put in to place to limit RAC's running costs for the offer.

It ain't 'pestering someone else' if that 'someone else' offers to do it for them.:winkie:

Why don't you help them out......if they are hard up do it as a 'Good Samaritan' ..if they are well off you could come to an arrangement were you get a bike tank full of petrol out of it - everyone's a winner  - result! :winkie:

T's and C's

There are Terms and Conditions with every competition.

Sometimes it makes it difficult to enter, sometimes impossible.  That doesn't mean it is a scam.

Its up to the RAC

but I know how the couple feel. I don't have a facebook account, so I can't enter any of the competitions run at my son's local play centre becuase you have to like their facebook page to enter.

I could just get a facebook page of course, but I don't wanna.
