"Mass Save system has crashed. Here's the new website to apply for rebates": https://www.maswap1.com/
My wife and I had been speed dialing and refreshing the crashed Mass Save website for the past hour trying to land a reservation # for the appliance rebate program since it launched 1 hr ago. The new site was operating without a hitch and showed that $700,000 of the $5.4 million rebate was already gone. Seems I'm not the only one who found John's tweet.
Update: I just checked again, 1 hr and 10 minutes after the program began and $1.8 million of the $5.4 in funds is already gone. Better get on it quick!
Update # 2: One hour and 15 minutes after the rebate program began the new site that WBZ tweeted https://www.maswap1.com/ has also crashed. Wonder if they are cooking up a third site...
Update # 3: Two hours after the rebate offer began and one hour after Mass Save was able to piece back together a working website for the program, the money is all gone!
Here is the breakdown from https://www.maswap1.com/ at noon;
|Starting Funds||$ 5,455,625.00|
|Reserved Funds||-$ 5,455,625.00|
|Remaining Funds||$ 0.00|
|Wait List Maximum||$ 1,700,000.00|
|Wait List Allocated||-$ 402,000.00|
|Wait List Remaining||$ 1,298,000.00|
There is still a chance participants could get funded through the waiting list, but who knows...
