1. Free iPods, Xboxes, Flat Screen TVs
You have likely seen flashy banner ads for "Free iPods," "Free flat screen TVs" and a variety of other valuable items online. Did you know that these offers can be legitimate? You can actually get a free iPod or a flat screen TV!
So how does this work? In order to receive your free iPod, you are required to participate in several trial offers from other companies. These trial offers usually consist of things like:
- Signing up for credit cards
- DVD or CD purchase programs
- Monthly re-bill products (pills, vitamins, etc)
- Magazine subscriptions
Once you have completed at least 6 of these offers, and each individual company has verified your participation, you will be sent your free product. The trick is picking good trial offers. Pick the offers you might actually use. The credit card offers are usually a safe bet (as long as you don't use them more than once). Most of the offers are monthly subscriptions.
What's In It for You?
There actually is an iPod or flat screen TV at the end of the rainbow—you just need some persistence.
What’s In It for Them?
- They make money by selling your e-mail and contact information.
- They make commissions when you sign up for the trial offers, and when you are re-billed for anything you forget to cancel.
- A very small percentage of people ever completes every offer, so very few free iPods are actually ever sent.
