My Success Story

As I mentioned yesterday, my iPod from shipped. The estimated arrival date was between one and two weeks, so imagine my surprise when I went outside today to find a box hanging on my gate from Apple!

I took it inside, opened it up, and indeed, my brand new 20G iPod was inside. It's got engraved on the back, but that's a small price to pay. Plus, there's still plenty of room to get other things engraved.

This is perfect timing since I leave on Friday to visit Mac, LT, and any other bloggers that want to meet me.

I was beginning to be very skeptical of the whole thing, but I'm proof that it does work. I'm rotating links out for people still needing referrers, so if you haven't signed up for it or for the free flat screen tv or the free Dell Dimension 3000 desktop computer, please go here to sign up.

Do not post your own referrals links here! I will delete them. If you want your link added, go here and follow the instructions.

*grumble, grumble* I'm still bitter that they shipped yours first - I placed my order what, 2-3 weeks earlier? *sigh* Hopefully soon...

I'm sorry I'm going to miss your trip. :-( We were just in NY last weekend, and it's too much to make the trip down again, especially after hell week this week at school. I really would have loved to have met you! :-( I'm sure you're going to have a faaaabulous time.

.: gealan said on December 10, 2004 01:35 PM :: link it :.

is there any site/or other place besides here that you guys can reccomend me to post my referral link and get people to sign up fast? I tried ebay, and that worked for a while, but they soon found out and ended my auction. Email me at if you have any advice. Thanks a lot!

It really is a scam. I've known two people who went through the painstaking process of referrals and signing up for offers and 7 months later, they did not get their freeipods even though they fulfilled their requirements. I don't doubt that some people may have actually received an ipod from this fraud company, but even if they ship 1 ipod for every 10 people who meet their requirements, it's still a scam!

The free mini mac offer is legit! Several of my colleagues have received theirs in the past couple weeks and I received mine today! Don't believe? Pics will be posted shortly to my blog!
