Senseo Brewer Promotion - Getting an Error

Last week I got an invitation through coffee forums to take a survey to qualify me for a free Senseo (R) brewer. It took about 10 minutes - all the questions you'd expect for someone doing either market research on the brewers or looking for the people who generate buzz...

Today I got an e-mail notification that I had been selected, please follow a hyperlink and...
When you come to register, you will be asked to input the email address at which you received this invitation.

So far so good. But only that far. When I entered my e-mail (even by copying and pasting) the site returned an error.

That email address submitted not match any in our records. Please double-check that you typed the email address correctly. It must be typed exactly as it appears on your invitation email.

Has anyone else gotten this error and found a way past it?
Four e-mails from the Senseo people came within an hour of each other. The fourth one worked.

Rather intrusive - asking birthdate (day, month, year). With the stories of Veterans Admin lists being stolen, this isn't exactly giving me a great sense of comfort.

I hope the coffee is worth it. You can bet I will let you know now that they have raised the stakes.

I got the follow-up email to where it asked my name and where to send the unit. They're going to need to know where to send it but the birthday question I didn't like so I submitted a bogus one..c'mon guys..just because they ask doesn't mean it has to be your own..

Mine went prob.

I always give as much false information as possible when it comes to personal questions.

The Senseo people did promise that the first 500 people to fill out the survey from would be getting a free machine. They haven't given me any numbers yet so I'm not sure how far along we are at fullfilling this quota. It's troublesome that the link didn't work for some people.

I haven't had a problem with the survey or the emails. It's also pretty easy to guess to the answers they are looking for. People who will tell many people etc etc.

I will allegedly be getting the system in 3-4 weeks. we shall see I guess.
