I have seen alot of them, and all they say is that there ad guys pay for it or something, but than i thought.... how can they pay so much for almost free porducts....IT NOT POSSIBLE! Also i have never really heard of anyone getting one of these free ones... so can some1 tell me if i can trust sites like these cause i'm planning but just too scared... Any who got stuff off one of these sites tell me or post here please

    Read the fine print, there's always some catch that makes u NOT get it for free.
    Like you have to use a coupon FROM the 'ad guys', then have 15 or 20 friends also use that coupon.

    THEN you can get it for free, but ya sometimes it's legit.

    Its a scam. Usually they ask for money for ebooks and promised to send you the item within 6 months. Its usually some sort of pyramid scheme. Maybe the first 10 people may get a free wii, the rest won't.

    FreePay works, I know someone who got his iPod last week from them...it took FreePay like half a year to send it to him, though...

    Many of them are NOT SCAMS. It's ridiculous too see some people saying it's a scam when they know anything about it.

    scammed, scam·ming.
    –noun
    1. a confidence game or other fraudulent scheme, esp. for making a quick profit; swindle.


    Yup, these guys aren't gaining any quick profit at all...
    Filling out and referring numerous coupons and trial offers is just for fun [​IMG]

    freepay and the ones off the gratis network (freeipods.com etc) are legit. i received psps from these guys before. it's just a pain to get referrals

    PUt it this way, getting a part-time job will get you a Wii faster than this. I've tried it...and plus, it makes you crazy to start spamming forums.

    depends on the site.
    freepay is legit (used to be called gratis). i know because i have gotten a freeipod and a 17'' samsung monitor which i still use right now. this was wayyyy back when they were freeipods.com
    a few other sites are legit, but i'd stick with freepay if i were you. and yes its a pain to get referals. but if you are determined you'll get refs eventually.
    the best way to go about this is to find one of the "free" sites where you dont HAVE to get refs, and you can do all the work yourself. then you go and get yourself a $25 prepaid gift card (visa or mastercard). use that and do all the trial offers and you should have completed enough offers to get your wii and you never risk your real credit card info and you dont have to bug anyone [​IMG].
    i did this for a while, but i think i prefer to just pay the amount. less hassle.

    freepay is legit BUT DON'T DO THEM. they impose a 90 day time limitation, after which if you dont have site completed they delete your acct.
    trainn is always good, got an ipod from them. the site i posted is non credit card.

    everyone, check out the forums at www.scam.com to see what sites are legit and which ones aren't. I'm getting my Wii from www.gadgetcity.com
