free iPod Shuffle deal not honoured - help?

I bought a subscription through a website for audible.com. The offer included an iPod shuffle. But now this 'great' Canadian website won't honour that offer, saying that it was an old offer, and they've now removed it.

Any advice on getting them to honour the deal I clicked-through on?

Have you any proof that's why you signed up, i.e. screenshots/emails etc?

If not, then you could try a letter to the person in charge, not just customer service, outlining your story, wit

Hmm should have read the fine print before signing up. All offers should have an expiry date, as well as valid locations and all that legal stuff.

Your only recourse is to try to get your money back. They do have the free trial offer for a free audio book when you sign up, so if you explain yourself well enough they should cut you some slack. From what I understand they provide pretty good service.

AFAIK Audible.com was never a Canadian company, not that it matters.

Um when did you purchase this?
A search on the net shows the "free ipod" etc
But the dates are 2005
