Sorry for Not Writing, I’ll Try to Soon

This week is one of my busiest of the year at work. Y’know, my real job. Not this hobby of mine called miles and points. I don’t get paid for this, y’know!

So if I want to keep getting paid well enough to have spare time to share my thoughts on travel with you, I have to pay attention to pressing concerns with my job.. at least this week.

In the meantime, I did order my free desktop computer and monitor this afternoon. My free flat screen TV finally shipped and is on its way. And my free iPod is truly amazing.

For those of you working towards completing these same offers, reader David Caplan shares the following tidbit:

    tickle.com is really easy. The sign up form is
    short, the cost is $1 and you can cancel online under your account
    preferences. Credit is also instant.

I still like Infone as the best offer if it’s available to you. And AOL gives you 45 days to cancel and is completely free. But if you’re willing to spend a buck, Tickle.com might be for you.

Update: David Caplan clarifies and extends his advice.

    Unfortunately the tickle.com offer appears to be gone now. The good ones seem to disappear fast.

    As an aside, on the the freedesktoppc.com, if you have pop-ups “on” you will see the details of each offer, specifically which ones are instant and which ones aren’t. For instance, you will find out that you can’t cancel the Blockbuster offer within the 2 week trial period and still get credit for completing the offer.
