Free iPod Update (and Free LCD Monitor or Television)

Thanks to referrals from friends and LHB readers, I was able to place an order Friday for a free 20 gig iPod through The order is being processed, and should be released to the vendor ( in the next day or two. Many thanks to all who helped, I'm just hoping the company remains solvent and reputable until everyone who jumped through the hoops is rewarded. I'll be rotating free iPod referral links as my referrals fill their requirements.

I have started the company's other promotion, a free 17" flat screen monitor, LCD television, 27" television or TV/VCR/DVD player at This is a similar promotion, but you need 8 referrals instead of the 5 required for an iPod. I'm giving this a try, fulfilling my offer obligation with the 99 cent Real Rhapsody trial (which I will probably cancel after getting credit). If you are in a particularly giving mode and want to try this promotion, please use my referral code. I'll rotate people who sign up under me once I fulfill my 8 referrals on both the LHB main page and on my individual archives. Thanks again. One warning: after signing up for the Free Flat Screens offer, spam messages started piling up in the mailbox I used to sign up, so use a spamtrap e-mail address or something with a good spam filter.

Addendum: the company has started a Free Desktop PC promotion!

Definitly post a picture of the ipod's arrival - even though I'm halfway through my referrals, I'm still skeptical!

Okay, I jumped on this free ipod bandwagon a little late but I have a couple of questions. Do the people that you refer just have to sign up or do they have to complete an offer as well? And how are you all trading your referrals around, because I could help as being referred if someone else wouldn't mind me refering to them. Its like a big circle of free-stuff love.

Can us Irish readers participate?

The people who sign up have to also complete an offer, then once five referrals are credited with completing an offer (and you complete an offer), you can order an iPod. Then, the company verifies your referrals, places your order with their vendor (where I am now), and the vendor ships the iPod.

Feel free to post your referral link here.

The promotion is currently limited to the US, but I'm sure an EU variant will pop up soon.

This pyramid scheme has infiltrated my gmail with more spam than I care to admit. Enjoy the iPod, LHB. It was the least I could do for all the cool free downloads you link me to.

thanks for the update. I signed up last week and it's good to know that this is actually working.

Well, if this works I'll eat my hat... or something. I signed up for an account using someone's referral link from the last post - if anyone could help me out I'd be eternally grateful! I've had a very difficult time trying to explain all of this to my friends...

Ah man, they're totally going to run out of iPods by the time I get enough referral.

But I just signed up and if anybody else wants to sign up now I would appreciate it if you did it through my referall link:

I'll return the favor to people who want flat screens since I can't fit one in my apartment or whatever.
