Free ipod, ps3,....offers

Post by llama_master » Wed Jan 25, 2006 2:57 pm

Out of curiosity has here anyone ever filled out one of those forms for free gift and actually gotten one? I really like to know because its the question I ask to myself everyday. Ok maybe not everyday, but I wonder.

I'm not sure this subject has come up, although im about 90% sure it has. And it is all about looking at the "terms and agreements" and other various parts of the contract.
I'm the man, if you don't think so, you're wrong.

Oh BOY! pyramid schemes! :P

There is no such thing as getting something "for free". (just watch Decline 3) You may not pay any money, per se, but your name will likely wind up on many many mailing lists, all of which the companies sell copies of to other companies.

I think it's hardly worth the aggrivation.

Someone here mentioned that PopSci did an article on this. They found it hard to cancel the orders and finding 4 people gulible enough to try it out themselves to give you the free item.

Really if you're not careful to cancel the charge on your credit card you'll pay for that iPod/360/PS2/GameCube/ect on stupid promotings you signed up for.
