As every one is keeps on giving sample tests and try to get as many voucher as he can...
I think we are doing wrong there must be a limit for an individual may be of 2 voucher..
Syed has applied for 5 vouchers and get 3 in hands and looking for another 2...
I have given 4 test and got 141 voucher and waiting for 3...
Please confirm and correct us with prove...
AND What you think 1000 vouchers for each test OR overall 1000 vouchers ibm will issue...

My question is, are you really going to take those tests you've applied for?
If you get four vouchers, but you don't take any of the tests, all you've done is take away the opportunity for someone else to take the test for free, which is kind of mean.
But if you plan on taking the exams, I say you've earned the vouchers. So don't feel guilty.
And, in IBM's original email announcing the free vouchers, one of the answers to the FAQ said something like:
"... as long as you are one of the first 1000 people to pass exam 141, you will receive a voucher good only for exam 141."
So, the vouchers are not transferrable to other tests, and it sounds like its 1000 vouchers per test. The fact that they are still giving them out indicates they had tens of thousands to give away. 1000 total vouchers would have been gone in the first day or two.
My 2 cents.

Exactly that's the question I am asking to myself. I am going to take 3 and I thing >2 is unhealthy. Did not take 483, 489 vouchers because of that. For me it will be hard to pass the 486, 141, 457, although I have practical, project-knowledge in that areas, although not very much.
I doubt if possible employers appreciate exams too much, especially if you have tons of them.

Anyway exam gives me good incentive to get student again and learn.

It itched in my fingertipps, but I resisted to take more.
just my 2 euro cent

No realy we will give all the exames if we get voucher and hopefully will pass all
But i think ibm will not allow any one to give all exame freely..There are 1000 vouchers for each exame and i don't think voucher will be finish in 2 to 4 days , may take a month ot two.Please confirm what is limit of an individual to give exame..

if you have the voucher, you take the exame.
And the number IBM sends vouchers seems to be unlimited.
When you have the voucher its a Prometric thing. Prometric does not care if I come 3 times to their office or I come 2 time and my little sister 1 time or you 8 times and my mother 3 times.
Prometric just want test takers.

Hi,
After taking the test 141, do I have to mail IBM saying that I have passed the test or will I be receiving the voucher automatically. I did not save any time information when I took the test.
Would I be getting the free voucher?
Thanks
Shoba

IBM will send the voucher to the email address you used when you registered within 4 business days.
Once they reach 1000 free vouchers for a test, I assume they will not stop sending out vouchers.
You do not need to do anything to get the voucher. They just show up in your email.
