Free AllClear PRO/Equifax from HD

Postby nismoZtuner » Thu Sep 25, 2014 1:51 pm

So my friend sent me a link to sing up for a free identity protection because of what happened to Home Depot that he received through an email form HD ...he was telling me that all they ask for is the basic signup stuff for the service and that it I will get 1 year of free credit monitoring from Equifax- he tells me i should sign up..

what do you think?

I got the email from Home Depot and signed up for it. In the email that I received, there was a product/redemption code to input. I would speculate that each consumer that gets the email may have a different product/redemption code, used to verify that you are in fact an HD customer who's account may have been compromised.

Why the hell would you give HD an email address if you only shop at the store? You want them to send you spam? HD has tried very hard to collect email addresses so it can spam its customers, and sell data to others, but they're not anywhere near 100% effective. And that ignores that some fraction of their customer base doesn't do email at all.

That may have been your experience, but it has not been mine. I've been a customer there for years and have paperless billing set up where I get notifications via email of statements and payment postings. I've not gotten spam at all. I get more in the snail mail from them than I do email.
