Default Free 60gb Ipod Photo?

COPY LINK: SPAM link deleted

Before I signed up, I wanted to get to the bottom of the ?????. I didn't want any sweaty, filth pushing webmonkeys to have all my info, so I did my research. Gratis Internet, the parent company of the FreeIpods, FreeFlatscreens, etc. sites, recently did an interview with Wired Magazine.
In this article Gratis states that they are acting as Head Hunters for companies (more on that later) and are paid between $50-$90 per referral. Although this seems like a lot of money, this is nothing compared to what these companies spend for print advertising which does not guarentee ANY customers. So now we know what ?????? equals. ??????=$50-$90 for Gratis per guranteed customer (referral sites).

How Does it Work?
You sign-up on one (or more) of the following websites:

Ok, so here is the tricky part. Once you sign up with one of these websites you have to complete an "offer" from 1 of Gratis's advertisors. There are usually 5-10 different offers, some being better than others. Now, remember the ???????=$50-$90 equation? In order for you to receive your ipod/Flatscreen/Desktop PC/Handbag you have to refer 5, 8, or 10 of your friends, and they have to complete one of the offers as well. Then in order for them to receive theirs they need to refer others, and son on. So lets just look at why they are going to send an Ipod to you. (1(you) +5(your friends))x$90=$540-$250(ipod)=$290 profit for them just for you signing up. The advertisers are more than willing to pay, and FreeIpods is more than happy to send you your ipod. Works out for everyone.

What process should you use to sign up (to ensure that you will get your item)
When signing up, it is recommended that you use Internet Explorer (sucks) some people have reported problems using other browsers.

1. 1. Click on one of the links above and enter a VALID US mailing address.
2. 2. Complete the marketing survey - not your answers do not have any impact on you receiving your item.
3. 3. Once you have signed up, you should receive a verification email. If you did not receive one, go to the "My Account" page and click the link to have them resend it. If you still did not get it check your spam folder.
4. 4. Sign-up with one of their partners and complete the offer. (see the section which offer should I choose) It can take up to 15 days for your offer to show completed (unless you follow my steps!) =)


Which offer should I choose?
Just so you know all offers require a credit card, **HOWEVER** not all of them cost anything! =)

* * InFone: This requires a credit card but is FREE. *INSTANT VERIFICATION*
* * Zooba: Instant verification, and you get a Best Seller Book for $10
* * AOL /w MusicNet: Sign up for their 45 day free trial. If you cancel before 45 days you are not charged anything.
* * Ancestry.com: Try a free 30 day trial of Ancestry.com's "Find your Ancestors" service.
* * Blockbuster Online: Try a two week trial of Blockbuster's Netflix-like service.
* * Video Professor: This costs $7. *INSTANT VERIFICATION*


I suggest you go with the Infone offer. It is free, and you get instant verification. Next I would suggest Blockbuster because you not only get the 2 week trial (like netflix) but you also get 2 coupon codes for free rentals at your local blockbuster. Just make sure to cancel before 2 weeks is up and it is free.

I've been reading these forums for a while and I wanted to post that. I wanted to let people know how those things work. Try it if you want.
