I may be paranoid, but ...
This is about security and their site does not work securely (NO https)!
Epic fail?

@ox2ti8pt: is someone going to steal your address?!!?! oh NO! :-P

Only the first 10,000 requests the sponsor receives each day will be honored, and only a maximum of 500,000 pens during the entire Promotion Period will be honored.

@ox2ti8pt:

I don't know that it's an "epic" fail, but it is a discourtesy. I'd be more concerned if we were asked to submit financial data over standard http.

And my language above isn't about security so much as legitimacy. Too many of these "free deals" seem to spawn from unverifiable companies who probably have no intention of making good on their offers.

See http://deals.woot.com/deals/details/60fd70c7-e23a-4265-8963-e6ad5a2392e7/light-breeze-spa-and-salon-free-wooden-comb#4 for example.

@spitfir304:

Well, technically it's a "uni-ball Jetstream(TM) Retractable pen."

Maybe the super part is it's free!

Who writes checks anymore?

Oh yeah, always the person in front of me in the checkout line.

vote-for1vote-against

While many may not write checks anymore, this may still be useful on other forms of documentation requiring a signature.

Credit card receipts
Contracts (or deeds, wills, etc.)

I'd beware as this site is registered by proxy (they are hiding their identity). There is no need for a promotional company to do this. Could just be spammer building a list.

I'm in, last time it was expired. THX

@dtmguy
I don't think so as I saw the commercial for this on TV a few times already.
Unless this scammer has a LOT of money to be making commercials for cable nationwide, I doubt it.

I want to know why when I posted the deal yesterday it got deleted in like 5mins. Other days it gets 20 comments.

vote-for1vote-against

@cujo1809: because it was a repost. Same thing happened to me.

ALRIGHTY THEN PRODUCE THE FRICKING PEN!!!!!!!!!

I have yet to find the "perfect pen". Could this be the one?

vote-for1vote-against

Great pens, short window of opportunity, act fast!

@dtmguy: You can go into the parent company's website (www.newellrubbermaid.com)and follow the links to www.uniball-na.com, then to http://www.youtube.com/user/uniballpens, and find www.uniballsuperink.com in a Youtube video clip which appears to be legitimate.

Ordered my pen. Thanks for the tip.
When I saw it was the company that makes Rubbermaid containers, I wasn't so worried about fraud. They've been around for a while.
Cheers,

@hypnoticsilence: I use it to write prescriptions.

I love these pens... great tip and the ink flows really well. It's also a very well balanced pen and a nice size. I've also haven't had an ink smudging problem that I do with other pens.

Went back up again Saturday 1/30 at 1:00 pm. Looks like they give away a limited amount of pens per day then close down until the next day.

vote-for1vote-against

@sgtmom52 agreed.

This isn't dead... I just got it. If you join the facebook group, it'll send you an update when the pens are available, or just randomly find out during the day.

vote-for1vote-against

Not dead. I just ordered a pen. :) Thanks

I just ordered one and it was still going. said my free pen will arrive in 3 to 6 weeks.
If I get a bunch of new spam I'll just block it, no biggie.

w00t! got a free pen ordered.

Still active for today. Pen ordered.

hopefully it doesn't come with tons of junk mail!

vote-for2vote-against

Got mine in the mail two days ago. Really nice pen.

vote-for1vote-against

Got mine! Works nice! And a coupon? Sweet!

vote-for1vote-against

My super ink pen from the previous post arrived today, along with a coupon for fifty cents off another pen. Great writing pen, is very smooth, non-blurry, and comfortable. Standard sized pen and refill. I plan on buying a couple more. I think that this pen would be especially useful for prescriptions, traffic citations etc. but is too inexpensive to be given alone as a gift. In short, great pen, smooth writing, worth the wait.

Finally got the darn pen. It's a good pen and it's not like I was desperately needing this.

vote-for1vote-against

Got the pen. Writes smoothly, and has a good feel. I was most impressed by the box. Was anyone else amazed that a full size pen fit in that little box? It felt like a magic trick.
