TZOO didn't IPO until 2003. 
Edit: Are you saying that you are a very early investor, OP?

  They were giving away a few shares for registering with email and a few more for referring friends back in the days before the IPO. 

Ha. They probably diluted those into oblivion.

Start HERE.

I couldn't figure out how to login to claim them either from Travelzoo....eventually, they went to unclaimed property division of the state I lived in at time (Florida). Search and see if it is listed on one of the missing money websites and fill out the claim form. If I remember correctly, it was worth about $170 for the 5 shares (I think it was just 5) when I got check from Florida.....at one point, the value was much higher than this, but this was value when they sent it in.

I'm sure that I signed up for these shares (even though I was in my early teens in 1998). But I sent investor relations a copy of my drivers' license and they couldn't find me. Annoying.


Mine ended up with California lost property. Sent my info to state controllers office and got a check a few weeks later. Think I received $300
