actually guys, this is legit. it'* been checked out by wired mag and cnn. funny thing is, no-one believes it'* true. which sucks, because it makes it really hard to get 5 people to sign up. go ahead and try it. it'* hard.

anyway, it works something like google adsense - where site owners get paid cash for clicks. but in this case, the people who own the site get money every time someone signs up for one of the offers on their site (always for legitimate companies, might I add). when they do that, owners of the site get paid cash. given how hard it is for you to get 5 people to actually sign up for something like this, it'* only a very small percentage of the people who sign up for offers (and get others to sign up for offers, making the owners more money) that actually get iPods. and when they do get their iPods, the owners of the site actually loose money. but in the long run, they make off like bandits.

anyhew, it'* pretty sweet, and there'* plenty of people online who have gotten theirs for free (and because so many people say it'* not true, they include pictures of the shipping invoices with the parent company of freeipods.com on it). it'* legit, and it'* cool, but it'* darned near impossible to get anyone to sign up for it.

*whew*

that took it out of me. i've been giving this speech now for about 3 weeks, and still only have one person signed up underneath me, and they haven't even filled out an offer. sure you're guaranteeing a certain amount of spam to your email account, but since email accounts are free, i usually keep one around just for spam anyway...

so give him a shot, and help him out. it takes 5 minutes of your time, and no money (the offers are always changing, but the last i looked at least 3 didn't require any money at all), i signed up for AOL, and 3 days later, it was credited to my account as a completed offer - bam. cancel AOL. no charges at all.

not to shabby a deal, but again, it'* hard. so help him out. and if you get done helping him out, i wouldn't mind either

well that'* the thing. while you're struggling to get 5 people to sign up, they're making money hand over fist. and laughing a lot at people thinking it'* a scam.

there'* plenty of people who've gotten their iPods - this isn't a scam. sorry, i know it sounds like one, smells like one, but it'* not *shrugs shoulders*

there'* money to be made these days in internet advertising, which is all this is.
