it's completely legit....that site (www.gratisnetwork.com) has been on numerous news channels and there are stories about them...even g4tv had the ceo of the company on i think the show ScreenSavers.....in fact i'm doing http://www.FreePSPs.com/?r=17495261 ....you can help me out by clicking on it and following the directions...later bro
This is how it works....The advertisers such as blockbuster, aol, comcast, buys thousands or millions of products (psps, ipods, tv's, etc) and basically send them to gratis, in return gratis offers these products for free for people who sign up for the advertisers offers...so for instance i sign up for blockbuster online and then i have to refer 5 friends to do the same (or another offer). Blockbuster (or another company) gets all these subscribers (therefore more customers and more profit) and we get a $250 psp or $250 ipod or $500 tv or computer, etc..........now as with any subscription you can cancel you subscription to the advertisers site within 30 days without being charged a dime, so you basically win out....the way the advertisers turn a profit is because out of the millions of people signing up to get the free product there is bound to be hundreds of thousands who stick with their subscription....having the ability to order movies online (like netflix) is something that appeals to a ton of people so some people say "hey i'd like to keep my subscription, it is only like $10.00 per month so why not...even at the end of a year you still have paid less for your subscription than if you were to actually buy your free product...so it's win win...........to sum this all up this is really like a promotional tool to raise awareness about a product or service.....
Yeah i thinks its legit. Its for promotion. I remeber I was gonna stay at this resort in Massachusetts and it was normally like $200 something a night, and they were offering $50 a night and all you had to do was take one 30 minute tour. They are hoping that when people see the tour, they might actully want to stay longer, or you know. I couldnt go there cause there were no more rooms left. Same thing with this. They are hoping you keep you subscription and they make a profit. If you think about it, say i sign up, and get 8 other people, so thats 9 right there, why would the other 8 sign up if there not gonna get another 8 so they can get a 360? So 8x8 is 64 x 8 is.. well i dont want to figure it out, but thats a lot of customers, and a lot of money.
Make sure you read all the fine print before signing up on these things. A lot of the sites out there require to sign up for trial versions of magazine subscriptions or antispam software before you "qualify" for getting your free system. You need to know what will be required, and in the case that you do have to sign up for trial versions of things to earn points, you're going to want to stay on top of them in order to cancel them before they hit you with actual susbcription charges.
Remember, ain't no such thing as a free lunch. Read carefully, or you may find yourself subscribing to a year's worth of Basket Weaving Weekly and The Gentleman's Guide to Faking Bowel Movements.
