    Free Meraki Wireless APs after Webinar

    Earlier this year, I was invited to a Meraki Webinar from Longbenton College and offered a free Wireless AP if I 'attended'.

    Had some post-webinar marketing emails but never received my free AP, despite contacting two different people about it.

    I was just wondering if anybody on here actually received a free AP.

    @Dom_ Thanks for that. I'll keep at it then.

    By the way, did you actually buy anything from them?

    I received one with no problem - however a friend of mine who did it did not receive his. However it could be because I had a call from someone else in Meraki inviting me to another webinar a few days later and I mentioned it to them on the phone.

    He chased them up over it once mine arrived and I think they sent one straight out,

    No - the AP is pretty good though!

    I've just filled in a contact form on their website. Hope this does the trick.

    Way back in May, I attended a Meraki Webinar from LongbentonCollege, with the promise of a free Wireless AP.
    After the webinar, I received a few emails from … whorequested our VAT ID and address, which I provided on 1 July. However, we didnot receive our AP. I emailed … in September, but received no response.Later, I received an invite to attend another webinar from'York College', again offering a free AP. While I did not attend this sessions, I did contact … to ask her tochase up our outstanding AP. Once again, I received no response.After posting on the EduGeek forum, I have found that somedid receive an AP, some had to chase it up, and others didn't receive one atall.
    Hopefully, this email will put me in the 'had to chase itup' category.Thanks for your time.
    (Not sure why it keeps putting an 'end quote' tag after the first sentence!)

    I didn't attend that webinar but I have received a free MR12 for attending a webinar so it's a real offer. You will have to provide a valid VAT number to get it for free.

    I attended one of their webinars and got a free AP. Phoned them after the webinar and gave them the school details, explained we weren't VAT registered (which was fine). The MR12 AP was delivered a few weeks later.

    It is a valid offer - They offer the MR12 for free.

    For anybody who tries to test throughput and load on one of these devices, it is the one at the lowest end of the range - so if you don't get amazing performance don't be too surprised.

    I did the Meraki CMNA earlier this year and nicely have a Meraki MR24 AP, MX60 Firewall and a 24 port switch out of it
