Christmas shopping on the Internet. (Part #1)
My daughter who is in college told me she would really like
to see the Tennessee Titans play a football game. She even asked me if that
would be a possibility for a Christmas present. Like most fathers of adorable
daughters if it is in my power to make it happen I would make it happen. Being
the CEO of an Internet company I decided to search for the tickets on the
Internet. I want to share the steps and results with you.
1. I needed to find the closest game to Oklahoma City. I
did that by visiting the NFL website:
http://www.nfl.com There I found out
that the Tennessee Titans will play the Houston Texans on December 29th, in
2. I had the venue and the date but needed to find
tickets. My first stop took me to:
http://www.ticketmaster.com/section where I
quickly learned that the game was sold out! I brought up Google Search engine
http://www.google.com/ and typed in, "tickets titans texans". Resigned to the
fact I would have to pay more than the face value for each ticket, I began a
3. The prices were incredible and I began to complain to
several people in the office. Our FullNet Network Engineer Michael Tomas is a
power seller on E-bay. Upon his suggestion, I went to:
and typed in, "Titans Texans tickets". Several different opportunities to buy
tickets came up, so I watched the auctions for a couple of weeks to get a feel
for pricing and seats. Compared to the scalper sites on the net E-Bay looked
4. I eventually spotted some tickets I wanted and decided
to place a bid. Little did I know that your good credit and credit card in hand
means nothing on E-Bay. You must be a registered user to buy or sell on E-bay.
I didn't have time for the formalities, so I asked Michael to place the bid for
me and at the same time register me as a user.
5. I entered the bidding process with less than two hours
to go on the biding. It was easy. I placed a bid $10.00 higher than the
current bid and then gave them a cap I was willing to pay. The entire bidding
went up immediately to $110.00. This was more than when I placed the bid but
$100 below where I placed the maximum bid. I went home to watch a movie with my
son and let the computers do their work. When I went online after the movie, I
had won the bid!
Next month I will write about the different payment options
I have learned about from PayPal to BillPay. I will also let you know about the
game and how I secured the hotel rooms.

A Special Offer
From time to time we at FullNet are able to provide a special offer
on one product or another that creates an extraordinary buy for the customer.
This Christmas, our CEO has done this with a special Annual Dial-up Membership.

access (this includes 2 Free months) and you will receive 12 months of our
FullFilter email spam and virus protection (all 12 months are Free). This
results in a savings of over $50.

VP of Sales
to your fellow FullNet Members!
month I wanted to remind you of some of our policies and how they benefit you,
the FullNet member. More specifically I wanted to talk about our usage policy
and help you to understand how it affects you.
to best serve you, FullNet allows unlimited attended access. The key word here
is "attended." This means FullNet specifically prohibits programs or
applications that keep your connection alive while you are not physically at
your computer. When you do this, you tie up our equipment and prevent other
members from using that connection. With incorrect settings, you can
inadvertently keep your connection to FullNet open for hours while you are not
there. In some cases we have had users whose computers are logged onto the
FullNet service almost 24 hours a day! This is obviously not someone sitting at
the computer the whole time, but an abusive situation that causes problems for
our other members.
way to prevent this from happening to you is to make sure you do not have your
computer automatically dial-in to check email when you are not at your
computer. This type of abuse, along with auto-dialers and similar programs, can
get your account with FullNet terminated. When you're not at your computer,
disconnect from the Internet and give someone else a turn. Together, we can
continue to make FullNet the best service available!
have any questions, or would like help double-checking your settings, please
feel free to contact our Customer Service Department. They are here 24 hours a
day, 7 days a week to help you! Call 235-5688 in OKC or 1-877-385-5832
statewide, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
