    Following on from the recent thread about tyres and tyre care, Bridgestone are currently offering a VERY handy freebie.. A pressure/depth gauge

    http://tyresafety.eu/en/order

    Please note

    Their system does not like Google Chrome
    You will have to use another browser to place the order ( Internet Ezplorer and AOL are fine.. No idea if Firefox of Mozzella will work )

    What's the catch?
    Is there an option to opt out of marketing or is this simply a way of harvesting contact details.

    Sorry if this seems cynical.

    Excellent.. so far I think it is only Chrome that the system does not like ( though just heard from someone using I E they had probs.. no idea which version they are using )

    Well I have been on their mailing list for 11 years,, So far I have had ONE mail and that was a requested one :Eeek:

    I did not even get notification of the offer.. Happened to read it on a n other forum !:Smile:

    Bridgestone are a responsible company with grown up attitudes

    Even if they did decide to do a mail shot you can bet your life the mail would abide by EU guidelines and would have the requisite opt out on the bottom..

    I think you can be assured that if there IS a scam it is NOT just so they can spam you ( after all, email address databases can be bought for just a few hundred quidlets nowadays.. Cannot really see ANY firm spending a few grand on such a project !

    I think it is just to bring the name to the frontal lobes of our brains..
    I mean, look at this thread..
    How many folk would have even THOUGHT of Bridgestone before I posted this ?
    Yet they make some really good tyres in a massive size range.

    ( And NO ! before anyone says ahah !! So it is YOU who work for Bridgestone.. no I do not and I actually prefer Avon products ! :thumb: )
