Free Product Ads

Hi all,

I don't know why, but I felt compelled to see if these ads for free products if you jump through their marketing hoops pay off. I saw one for Playstation3 and $500 towards games (don't know if the link still works, but pasted it below). I really find it hard to believe that a company is going to give away nearly $1000(US) for being able to sell your contact information to every type of marketer in the world. I found myself reading through the legal jargon, and thought, if this is a scam, it is really well done. I guess what I am looking for is some information. Has anyone ever tried one of these, and willing to share their experience about it?

Cheers,

Joe

Joe,

I fixed it for you, but you can do it yourself next time. at the top of each post, you'll see an icon with a piece of paper and a pencil. this lets you edit your post.

if you edit the first post in a thread, you can also edit the topic.

Note that you can only edit your own posts (unless you are a bartender or sherrif type person).

Now, i know of somebody who claims he got a PSP through one of these offers. he posts to one of the boards i frequent. I have never actually met him, so i can't vouch for the truth of the matter, only that he claimed it worked.

Thanks for the tip, I have been reading at the Big Moose Saloon for a couple of years now, but never posting. It is a great help for the Sun Exams, and as I am finding out, many IT issues. Also, I was just curious if those ads really do pay off. We are constantly bombarded with FREE!!! ads and just continue to click on through what we need. Oh well, thanks for the help again.

Joe
