Trials and tribulations
IPod Promoters Feel the Heat
FreeiPods.com is one of several "customer acquisition" websites run by Gratis Internet of Washington, D.C. To get a free iPod, subscribers must sign up for various online promotions and persuade five other people to join up as well.
Subscribers are given a choice of about 10 different offers, including trials of The New York Times, America Online or Boca Java's coffee club. The offers are typically free and easily canceled, the site claims.
Once the trials are over -- for both the main subscriber and their referrals -- the free iPod is dispatched.
However, Wired News has been inundated with complaints about spam, mishandled accounts and shipping delays.
The company explains that they are a victim of their success: "between 100,000 and 150,000 people have signed up for FreeiPods.com since August. To date, they have dispatched more than 4,000 free iPods, and another 1,000 are pending, they said."
