I have been looking into the Free Ipod thing for a while now and I am convinced its a good deal!
I saw a piece on one of my favorite shows The Screen Savers, a show on Tech TV. He did it with his girlfriend and they successfully received their Ipods after 2 months!
I did a google search too and found this article on Wired!
Looks cool! You sign up for 1 service (I signed up for the Blockbuster Online rental program) and refer 5 friends and bam u get a FREE IPOD! You can get a Mini or the new 20 gig! Keep in mind the minis are only 4 gig, but look mighty fine! Or you can get a $250.00 buck gift certificate to ITUNES, which is rather cool as well.
I am warning everyone now. you may not get the Blockbuster Offer, I got It but one of my buddies DID NOT get that offer. Here are the other offers for your enrolment
Complete 1 of the offers: Blockbuster Online, USA Today, BMG Music Service, Video Professor, Ancestry.com, MyInks, GM Card, The Literary Guild, Nexiderm,AHA Property Tax Reduction, Columbia House DVD
So be prepared to get something else!

Making Free IPods Pay Off – Wired.com

Unless you’re extremely gullible, the promise of getting a free iPod from FreeiPods.com looks extremely dubious.
But surprisingly, the site appears to be legitimate. The program almost certainly isn’t a dodgy pyramid scheme; it’s a new form of online marketing supported by companies like eBay, AOL and Columbia House.
Here’s how it works: FreeiPods.com promises an iPod or a $250 gift certificate to anyone who signs up for various online promotions and persuades five other people to participate.
Subscribers are given a choice of 10 different offers, including a 45-day trial of AOL and a two-week trial of Ancestry.com’s genealogy service. Typically, the offers are free and easily canceled.
Once the trials are over — for both the main subscriber and the referrals — the free iPod is dispatched.
Again please do me a solid and sign up off my link
From Alex’s Site From The Screen Savers:
Alex Albrecht: “FREE IPOD’s Works!!!
Well it’s official… I got my free ipod in the mail!!! Actually both my girlfriend and I got them in the mail! Freeipods.com really works…
It did take close to two months but hey free freaking iPods!!! This is great.
After Sarah did some great iPod software segments on the show I was starting to get jealous. Now I’m Podcasting and using iPod Agent with the rest of the enlightened world…
Thanks and good luck getting 5 people!
