IDrive Rush Limbaugh Promo Code

Rush Limbaugh is no stranger to controversy but at least he has the sense to backup. Last year he had several sponsors drop his radio show over some of his more controversial remarks about Sandra Fluke. One of those sponsors was Carbonite who offered this statement from David Friend, CEO of Carbonite.

“No one with daughters the age of Sandra Fluke, and I have two, could possibly abide the insult and abuse heaped upon this courageous and well-intentioned young lady. Mr. Limbaugh, with his highly personal attacks on Miss Fluke, overstepped any reasonable bounds of decency. Even though Mr. Limbaugh has now issued an apology, we have nonetheless decided to withdraw our advertising from his show. We hope that our action, along with the other advertisers who have already withdrawn their ads, will ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse.”

It certainly looks like IDrive had no problem filling the spot that Carbonite left. They have gotten a nice ad placement on Rush Limbaugh’s website and from what I have heard have him personally endorsing their service on his radio show and his website. Whether or not he actually uses the service I don’t know but it is interesting that he has continued promoting a cloud backup service. Certainly there are other companies beside cloud backup companies that would be interested in advertising with him.

Not everyone is happy that he has new sponsors of course and a quick search on Twitter shows that IDrive gets regular tweets directed at them calling for them to drop their advertising.

Whether you like or hate Rush Limbaugh, IDrive is still a good cloud backup service and if you are thinking of using them you can save 20% by taking advantage of his promo code.

    Also canceled my Carbonite subscription due to their thin-skinned comments. Going with IDrive! Thanks Rush for all you do!

  2. Bob says:

    I just dropped two computers from Carbonite as well. One more to go. Also, clicked on Rush’s link for 300GB for $24, not true. While the offer is better, it is 1TB for $45, the link should reflect an accurate price instead of luring you to the iDrive site only to spend more money.

    • Lee says:

      Unfortunately IDrive keeps changing the offers and it is hard to stay on top of what they are offering day by day but I will need to update the prices on their plans. They changed them recently and I have been slow to update here.

  3. Kevin says:

    I just moved our entire mobile user force to idrive business pro. We had been carbonite customers, and left because of their comments. iDrive was right to advertise with Rush.

  4. Michael Proctor says:

    The CEO of Carbonite is a typical liberal hypocrite. I wonder if he is as easily offended when a democrat like Ed Schultze makes terrible comments about republican women like Laura Ingrahm. I cancelled my subscription that still had well over a year left on it and they won’t even give you a refund for the unused portion.

  5. Mike P. says:

    “MEGA DITTOS” to Chris, Kevin and Birgit. Cancelling Carbonite today. Hello, IDrive.

  6. Count me as another Rush supporter who will be moving from Carbonite to iDrive. Sandra Fluke was/is a slut who expects us to pay for her bad behavior.

  7. Chris says:

    I heard about iDrive.com from Rush’s show and will be checking them out for use both personally and in our business. I am not impressed with Mr Friend’s slam of Rush’s remarks, and likely will never consider using Carbonite’s services because of them, remarks which I found offensive and ill-informed. Rush in spite of his flair for the dramatic, was spot on with his analysis as he usually is. His endorsement of iDrive carries a lot of credibility with me.

    • Kevin Marks says:

      What he said: I agree entirely with Chris above. I was using Carbonite, but after the CEO’s ignorant and snarky comments, and pulling their advertising from the show, I cancelled them. I’ll be looking into IDrive now. (And yes, I have a daughter approximately the age of Sandra Fluke, but she’s not a political fool like Fluke apparently is.)

    • Kim says:

      Right on, Chris!

    • dianddra says:

      I’m switching to iDrive. goodbye carbonite!
