If I'd checked more carefully I would have seen that all of this person's auctions close for a penny and then they charge $3.95 for shipping.

Presumably this is an ebay account that you set up just for this free ipod. Which means, you don't care too much about your user rating, so you could just never contact the seller for shipping/payment info.

On the other hand, $3.96 still isn't a bad price for an ipod.

There are people who have been disqualified. One person said the reason was he used the same IP to sign up multiple ebay accounts.

For the first time ever, I see a reason to be excited about having a dynamic IP address.

But that would be horribly dishonest, being that the seller still has to pay fees....

I just had to jump in on this! Reminds me of 1999 when www.reel.com was around and you could get all those DVDs for free by signing up for this and that and using coupon codes!

Looks like the only people getting screwed in this are the eBay folks.. I mean, who doesn't already have an eBay account?

Here is mine:

Ah, I wasn't aware the seller still had to shell out.

Just and update. I got 5 referals for the ipod deal. And my account status is:
Congratulations! You have currently completed all requirements to get your totally FREE iPod. We now need to confirm your account and referral offer completions. Please check back after 2 business days to see your status.

Now for the freeflatscreen

Congratulations! I think I speak for all of us when I say we're looking forward to seeing how this goes.

Myself, I'm at 4 referrals (thanks everyone!), so I'm close!

Just curious, how long did it take you to get credited for the ebay bid? I bid on items for the ipod and the flat screen right away, but haven't been credited for it. I thought it might have something to do with my using Firefox, so last night I went through it for both accounts in IE as well. I don't expect those to go through immediately, but I'd like to know how long it might be.

Also, I think they have changed their requirements for ebay. Now the popup when you go there says you just have to make a bid.

I had all my referals for the ipod done on sat. But all the ones my friends bid on were ending in like 40mins. So all the auctions were completed by then as well.

I can't edit my post any longer.. but I now have 1 referal. Thanks!

Oddly, I got an email saying that I have completed the eBay requirement, but when I check my status, it says that I have not... I guess I have to wait for the auction to end.

Aug-01-04 09:14:17 PDT : My initial bid.
Aug-02-04 13:57:00 EST : My "Congratulations, you just received credit for completing the eBay offer! " email was sent.
Aug-05-04 13:55:17 PDT : The auction ends.

As of now, I still show no credit when I log in to see status. "Your Status: You have not completed your requirements. Click here to participate in any one (1) of the offers to be eligible to receive your free iPod!"

Maybe, try sending them an email with their online form. I can image their email is swamped though ;(

Here's an idea... cause I definitely see where you're coming from. It's happening on hundreds of forums, people just signup to add their link and have nothing to do with anything else. Anyways, I have http://freeipods.us and http://freeflatscreens.us ... maybe we can just put a link in here (and the other thread), close the threads, and forum members can send me an email and I will put their links on the site. That way anyone who is interested in the deal can just go there, and that will prevent people from signing up on the bbs to just post their referral link. I'd really hate for this to get out of control, especially if it were to hit google.

Iím adding everyoneís link right now. Anyone else can pm me. (Note: I will check to see if you are a current member, so donít signup to the bbs just to give me a link. There will be a submit section on the site pretty soon.)

Crap, well that ends the deal for me (and a lot of other people, I'm sure). They never did give me credit for my bids, and now I'm stuck with cheap-ass $10 sunglasses that I accidentally forgot to check the shipping on

Oh well. At least I signed up with email addresses I can easily add to my spam filter

*edit*
The ebay offer is still available for the flat screens, though

I got five accounts signed up, but they didn't get assigned to my account. Looks like a database error on their end. I've got in an email to tech support now. How much do you wanna bet that that'll get resolved?

I'm still at the 'verifying' stage. Now it has changed from 'check back in two days' to 'check back in 7 days'. I still only have 1 completed from the freeflatscreens though so i'm not sure if that site works slower then the freeipods. The good news is that lots of people have been getting thier ipods.

Another update. I've been moved to progress 3... which basically means once they are in stock mine should ship Now I just need to get referals for the freeflatscreen.. hehe still only have 1.

Btw... I have someone else running freeipods.us and freeflatscreens.us. They are going by donations, but I can stick any of us empegbbs members in there without having to donate if you want.

I would appreciate being added to the site very much. I have 4 referrals, though two of them from here haven't completed yet.
