    It seems to take a while for the free items to come. I just got my Lenox Recip saw blade and I requested that back in January. It has almost always been my experiance that when something is free it takes s good deal of time to arrive.
    And on the lines of being cheap I will admit I am a bit "cheap" but if i get something for free and I like how it works I will proabably spend money to buy it once it wears out.

        "I am still waiting..."

        Same here, nothing but the razor knife blades have shown up.

Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."

          I never received mine either. If you click on the link in the OP's original post it pretty much says we won't be getting them either.

            I did receive the free recip blade (back in May or June as I recall), but no sign of the auger bit. But I'm not really surprised by this. These marketing types rarely think things through. I've sat in on too many meetings where the all these "ties" sit around and brainstorm (sometimes more like "gray-matter tornadoes") and come up with these totally off-the-wall ideas which get green-lighted without investigating the end cost.

            Mailing a nice flat recip blade is one thing, but sending out an auger bit probably costs several times more than the bit itself, not to mention the special packaging and the problems presented at the originating post office.

                From the Bosch web site:
                "Sorry.

                We're sorry, but over 20,000 tradesmen like you have
                already requested their free Bosch Auger Bit. The demand
                has been so great that we have exceeded our supply for this promotion. "

                  Mark Your Calendar - It Showed up Today.

                  I finally received the free Bosch Auger Bit today! I can't wait to use it. Although it is a Chinese auger, the quality is awesome, and it is very sharp.

                      I actually signed up in January and I'm still waiting for mine. Oh well, its free so I guess I can't get too upset about it.

                        Wonder if they will forward it to my new address since I had plenty of time to move since I signed up.......
