Free iPod - no joke

So there's this cool deal going around right now where you can get a free iPod. By clicking here, or on the link at the end of this post, you will be taken to a page where you will sign up for one of the marketing offers. There is a free trial month, during which they'll send you some gift certificates or something-or-other. After that one free month they will start charging you per month. It is up to you to call and cancel during that free trial month, thereby avoiding any charges. As my friend Tias explained to me, with much more clarity than I could ever get across here, they count on people either forgetting to cancel, or thinking that if they cancel they won't receive their free iPod. Also, as my friend Brad says, 'the essence of their offer is that there's a lot of money in referral marketing'.

The free iPod I have chosen is the 20GB Color iPod (as pictured above). Here are the details of this little beauty:

2 inch, 65,536 color LCD screen
Displays up to 25 full-color thumbnails at a time
Holds up to 5,000 songs
15 hours of music playback
5 hours of slideshows with music
Approx. dimensions: 4.1 inches x 2.4 inches x 0.63 inches
Podcast ready
Sync iPod-viewable photos from several different image file formats
Earbud headphones, AC adapter and USB 2.0 cable included

I have signed up and completed an offer, which means that Tias is one step closer to five completed referrals. In order for me to receive my free iPod in the mail, I must refer five new people. And that, my close personal friends, is where you come in. Simply click on the following link, follow the easy-to-follow steps, and complete an offer! After that, all you have to do is refer five new people and you yourself will receive a free iPod in the mail. It's definitely not a case of too-good-to-be-true. If you want details don't hesitate to contact me, either through 'comments' or through other means if you have them. Just don't forget to cancel before the free month is over.

gwilli said...

jblueafterglow said...

not yet, gwilli, not yet. the ipod doesn't get mailed to me til five people have completed offers, and so far i'm less than halfway there.. i was going to do an ipod-update post, but i think this covers it..
