REDMOND, Wash., Jan. 7, 2000 — MSN is temporarily suspending its popular MSN TM Internet Access rebate program in two states — California and Oregon. The program was developed on a national basis to provide consumers an easy and affordable way of accessing the Internet and MSN and all that it has to offer. To date, the program has been very successful for consumers and the retail partners of MSN.
Due to recent reports of some individuals abusing the rebate program, MSN has decided to temporarily suspend the offer in the states of California and Oregon while taking steps to ensure the program continues to meet its goal of helping people access the Internet easily and affordably.
MSN expects this suspension to be temporary and apologizes to customers and partners for any inconvenience this may cause. MSN is confident that, following this suspension, the program can be continued in a way that ensures consumers the best experience possible.
