IPod Anyone?

Okay guys, here's the deal. I recently found a promotion for a free ipod. Like you're probably thinking right now, I first thought it was all just a scam. But after doing some research, I found quite a few success stories on the net.
CNN, Wired, and Geek.com all have articles on this promotion.



The premise is simple. You must sign up for one of ten available free trials, including aol, netscape, etc.
After they process your order you can immediately cancel your trial, apparently this only takes about 3 days.

Next ask 5 of your friends to sign up as well and you'll have a brand new IPod. No Shipping and handling, no nothing.

You probably want to create an email address specific for the free ipod account because the company (gratis networks) that runs this deal does sell your email address to 3rd parties. So be ready for some spam in your inbox. But if you can stand the spam, then you'll be rewarded with a free ipod.



As you can probably tell, I'm in the process of getting my IPod. If you're still afraid it might be a scam then all I can say is don't try it. But to all the rest of you, good luck.

You couldn't pay me any amount to sign up for AOL. Sorry Bud.

I'd sooner have one of these babies:

MP3, video, photos and a 3.5" colour display.

Even if they were giving these away I would not sign up for AOL.

I'd have to format my PC after using AOL just to remove all the crap. Not worth an IPod. Not worth 10.

You don't have to sign up for aol if you don't want to, there are other choices including ancestry.com, blockbuster, netscape, etc.
Though, from my experience, aol seems like a good choice. I called aol to make sure the site was legit. The customer service rep assured me it was and five days later I canceled the trial without a hitch.

And yeah, I'd settle for an AV400 , but you can't go wrong with a free ipod

Pitch, there's no need to install aol's software. Just opt out from the download after signup.
