Government Rebates: Grumble, grumble, grumble

This is me multitasking. I am at home this morning, blogging with you fine people, working my cell phone and waiting for a web page to load. What exactly am I trying to accomplish? Today is the day that the appliance stimulus program started in Minnesota. The rebates became available on the State of Minnesota website at 8 a.m., Central Standard Time. It is 8:24 a.m. The website has already crashed and when I call? “Your call can’t be completed at this time, call again later.”

I fully realize that I am part of the state’s problem. With 11,000 rebates available and a little over $5 million available in stimulus money, everyone and their uncle are clamoring this morning to replace their aged Frigidaire. But COME ON Minnesota …

I’ll keep you all posted … in the meantime, free cell anyone?
