Reader Samir emails some useful advice for the free iPod offer:
- I got the blue iPod mini – I’m VERY happy with it. I’ve only got about 3.6GB on my computer at home, so it works for me – but I can see running out of space soon – they didn’t have the 15GB one available when I ordered mine!
It takes about 4 weeks to get it – you can e-mail free iPods & they’ll send you your Apple order number – then just go to Apple.com & set up an account there & check your order status.
I actually called them up & had them change the order from freeipods to my name (that way, I’d get the e-mail confirmation receipt which is required for warranty work in case it break – if you don’t have the receipt, the won’t do warranty work apparently & I wanted to track my shipment).
Also I’ve noticed that the ancestry.com offer is no longer available at the freeipods.com and freeflatscreen.com websites. Too bad, that was one of the easiest ones. But the AOL offer is still a free, cancellable trial (thus you won’t pay anything to complete your offer and get your reward).
