Free? Nothing is free.

Free Xbox? No way!While searching for an image I happened across a blog discussing free Xboxes, iPods and iPhones. Free Xboxes and iPhones? Preposterous! The blog had a link to some random youth pastor that chronicled the time line of events that led up to his receiving a free Xbox.

Naturally, the skeptic in me needed to see proof. Sure enough, there was a photo of him sitting smugly behind his newly unwrapped Xbox.

“He probably bought it and took a photo of it to scam us.” I thought to myself.

After reading more, I discovered links to youtube videos of CNN, MSNBC, Fox, Wired and G4 reports about these “freebie” websites and how they work. More reading revealed that the process was quite simple.

  1. Create an account
  2. Sign up for one of their free trial offers from various big-name companies like Netflix, Blockbuster, Gamefly etc.
  3. Keep or cancel your free subscription at the end of the trial period.
  4. Get 9 others to sign up for a free trial too.

Well, hell. I’m convinced. So off I went, created an account – and signed up for the free stamps.com offer. What a great trial offer, you just download their software and enjoy the free postage printing service for a few weeks. A free xbox and stamps? What has this world come to?

Try it out yourself and send me a photo of you and your new Xbox.

  1. Damn i cant believe i payed for mine! and i didnt even get stamps…
    The link to the “youtube videos of CNN, MSNBC, Fox, Wired and G4 reports” doesnt work because the movie has been removed due to violations blah blah blah. Im working on a plan to get a free ps3 that only requires a crowbar and a balaclava its still under construction though.
