    Ignore them, they want you to complete surveys and buy trial this and that and end up paying more in time and money than it would cost actually buying one at the store.

    Their surveys spawn more surveys spawning more surveys and you never see the end of it.

    I tried it once for an xbox, should have just purchased the xbox. :eek:
    Sometimes you just have to find out for yourself...

    The only so-called free Ipod offer I know of is one by Citibank---you have to deposit 5000 I think and you have to keep your balance above 2500 for the first six months---As my daddy always told me---be leery of strangers carrying free gifts.

    What ever happened to the free toaster?:confused:

    You realize that by buying it, you'll probably keep getting ads, or even get more?

    Well, let me tell you I signed up for the free sony camcorder. Well after you complet all three stages you get it. But they dont really explain that in the ad you get. You dont relize that until you check you status of your item. I learned the hard way. But the good thing is I only got stuck with a MBG contract which I plan on canceling and a Columbia House DVD contract. But I think that one I will keep. But the whole thing I understood when I read it was that I only had to complete two offers. But you have to complete six offers. So don't bother uless you want to spend a lot more money than buying it out right. But if any of the services they offer you. You plan on using in the future maybe it is not such a bad deal. But myself I give this a thums down. It really is not worth the spam you get and the trouble you go throguh to get it.

    Oh yeah!

    Spam and more spam.

    My favorite (heavy sarcasm) surveys, were the ones you tried to submit without selecting one of their frivolous offers (surveys in addition to the original survey), a message would come up stating, You have not selected an item and would not allow you to move forward with the survey until you did so.

    So you picked the lesser of the available evils and Wham! another completely different survey popped up, running off on tangents.

    I never saw the end of the survey as it changed direction so many times I gave up in disgust with them and myself for falling for it.

    This is what hotpop accounts are for.
    Signup, check with your e-mail client until it is shipped, then just let the account float free!
    Been doing it for years!
