Anyone who has been on the Internet for at least 15 minutes has seen advertisements for "free" high-priced electronics. You know the type. The annoying, brightly colored and often epilepsy-inducing flashing graphics, yelling at you to CLICK HERE to claim your "Free Plasma Television!" or "Free XBox 360!". These ads are often ignored by a lot of people, including myself... until today.
While doing a Google search, I saw an advertisement on the right side of the page that caught my eye. It said, in not so many words, that I could get my very own iPod Touch for only $20.00.
Intrigued, I clicked on it.
I got directed to this website where it carefully explained how to get an 8GB iPod Touch for $20. I read through the easily explained how-to page, and it seems very simple, and if it works, it's an amazingly cheap way to get a pretty cool iPod.
Call me delusional, but I want to put this program to the test. I want to see if it actually works. I've always wondered if these "Free" ads actually work, so I figured if all I'd be risking is $20, why not go for it?
I'm all set to try it out, but I need help doing it. According to the website I linked to above, after completing one promotional offer (where you'd spend the $20) you have to get five friends to do the same. Once all five friends complete the promotional offer, the advertising company sends out the iPod.
Would anyone else be willing to wager $20 bucks to see if this program works? I know that not everyone has $20 to just throw away if this doesn't work, but I'm willing to make your $20 investment risk-free.
If you agree to help me out with this, you of course have the option to refer five friends to do the same for you to get your free iPod. If you don't want to, though, and just want to help me get mine, I'll send you a matted 5x7 print from my photography collection (I'll let you pick between a few different prints), which is valued at $20.00.
This may be all for naught, but I'm willing to put some of my money (and my inventory) on the line to see once and for all if these "Free" ads truly work.
This may be crazy, and I may live to regret it, but I think I'm going to go for it.
So... How about it?
EDIT: I'm going to be away from my computer until Tuesday, so if you're interested, please wait for me to get back to you before you do anything.
