This is our current position on the X Box 360s

Microsoft's decision to conduct a non-staggered, worldwide launch for the Xbox 360 has made it extremely difficult for all Xbox 360 suppliers (including Gratis Internetís) to obtain them for order fulfillment. Therefore, we are unable to fulfill our customers' Xbox 360 orders until January 2006. We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your continued patience, while we continue working hard to fulfill your orders as soon as possible.

Sorry about this guys. We have been going crazy trying to procure a supply of these things and it has not worked out for us. If anything changes, we'll be sure to let you know.

I suspect that a massive supply of X Box 360s will just 'appear out of nowhere' right after Christmas.....

What's the difference, if there is no info on shipping, then there isn't any shipping either.

Microsoft will be shipping out large supplies every week, according to their spokespeople. Local best buys and other stores here already got roughly 20 in each this week. They go fast but you can get them if you know where to go and when they are getting them in. I expect a couple more weeks before they are relatively easy to get.

Drummer16161616

06-12-2005 18:39:06

MS better still release packages with the remote. That's rather rude if they give out such a small supply with the remote, then decided not to fpr the rest.

This will happen with the ps3 too just like it did with the psp and 360 (assuming that the PS3 will be a hot item). If the manufacturers don't put out enough items, there won't be a supply for freepay to get cheaply.

[quoteed055543a5="Airkat"]

I disagree.

We deal with several vendors of electronics. Those vendors told us that they would be able to procure at least a limited supply of the 360s upon release. Since we were dealing with several vendors, we figured that if one fell through, another would at least be able to help.

Obviously, this wasn't the case....

Sorry guys, we did what we could. Now we all have to wait...

If you want to blame anyone blame IBM's supply chain management as they are the compnay who is in charge of the release and supply of the 360 and they are who will be in charge of the release for the ps3 and the revolution so if you plan on doing those sites expect more of the same when they get released because this has all been planned long in advance to create more hyp eand buzz

I feel the same way exactly. But, as freepay is a company and trying to maximize their profits, they felt that they could increase profit margins by ordering in bulk for cheaper. They would have to pay retail price if they put in 300 preorders. Im going to be annoyed if we don't get a remote. I don't care about waiting (as all the current games blow), but I think we should get what was promised (.

[quotee08fac1f8d]When some companies say they put their customers first, they don't always back it up with real action. Some companies don't even say it (not mentioning the names of other companies that claim to give away free products). Here at FreePay we put the customer front, square and center. That's why customers who get a FREE Xbox 360 from us [be08fac1f8d]when it launches[/be08fac1f8d] will get the whole deal, not the basic 'core' system - you'll get the full works[/quotee08fac1f8d]

HA, I never read that before. Mainly because I wasn't interested in getting a free xBox but this is pretty sad. So I guess Freepay falls under those companies that don't back their shit up. Of course, I am just pissed off for shit that I am getting from them about my iPod reffs. A little help would be nice since you, "Put your customers first."

JesusNerd

08-12-2005 00:14:16

Appreciate the update Jake, I was expecting Jan. to early Feb. shipments anyway.

To all questioning about the remote, considering it [i9b3d076153]is[/i9b3d076153] listed on the website as included, I wouldn't be too worried.

crazyates

08-12-2005 07:34:22

so does this mean it'll be the same with the ps3?? If gratis couldn't get thier hands on any 360s, why should it be the same with the debut of the ps3? If it comes out in march, i dont want to be waiting till july or however long it'll take just to actually get my ps3. by then the hyp will be down, (and i wont be able to sell it on ebay for nearly as much... cry ) lol Does anyone think it'll be different, or does this 360 backorder think look like a picture of things to come in the future.

cyberpunk243

08-12-2005 07:46:46

Probably the same thing. Wouldn't surprise me. Then again, there may not be such a shortage since it won't be debuting near Christmas.

crazyates

08-12-2005 10:40:35

but debuing before christmas is part of the 360's big hype. coming out in march may mean faster delivery for freepay, but that also means they won't be worth as much and people won't be paying $1300 to get them for christmas gifts. kinda a trade off, i guess

Airkat

08-12-2005 11:23:11

yeah, but I dont think it matters much to people who actually want it for themselves

Think Freepay has any ordered? I doubt it.

I don't even have approval yet (waiting 3 weeks), so I know mine isn't coming anytime soon. However, I'd still like to see Freepay making some effort to pre-order and at least send a few out. This is my first freebie, and it isn't giving me much confidence in the system.

Actually, if you total up the amount of time you probably spend dealing with everything, you probably could have made enough just working to pay for the item. I don't complain because they have been good to me in the past. However, I will be mad if I don't get a remote lol.

I think a lot of you guys that are upset are directing your anger at the wrong place. I'm sure if M$ weren't trying to create artificial shortages to hype the 360, we'd all be playing our PDZ or watching DVDs with remote controls )

The really funny/frustrating part for me is reading blogs like majornelson.com where it devolves into fanboys trashing each other. There is almost no acknowledgement from Microsoft that they messed up this launch. Or maybe it went just as planned....

Freepay didn't say "We will get your Xbox's if there is an abundant supply." Companies have to rise to the occasion and deal with the circumstances and still deliver on time. That is what makes the great companies great and the crap companies crap.

You're not really leaving any room in the middle there. I don't think you can say that just because we didn't get our xboxes on or around launch day that Freepay is a crap company. I would imagine based on the volume they would need in order to fulfill people that completed the site that they probably have at least some preorders in that can't be cancelled. Maybe their funds are tied up in preorders.

I'm not saying I wouldn't mind a $400 check, but it hasn't been that long yet and it's not like you can just run down to the Best Buy and get one there.

Jake is here as a freepay representative, right? He can easily email his boss and say something like, "People want checks. Should we give them that option?"

I don't even want 360 Xbox. I was going to sell mine, so having this option would be great. I don't see how people can tell us to shut up; we're the customers; Jake should be glad to see we're giving suggestions as to how freepay can be better suited for its customers; that's his job.

Please stop trying to blame "M$" for another company's shortcomings. Whether M$ did this so called shortage release is debatable but not many companies could've produced so many units on a worldwide release like M$ has done. I'll be still waiting for mine but I'm tired of people blaming M$ for this. If Freepay uses that as their excuse, and it's legitimate... fine. But please stop sucking the freepay pole. Bottom line is we do our service, they get their money, we get a product without paying straight cash (nothing in this world is free). I saw a quote which said they were supposed to send upon release, they didn't... I ain't trippin but I'm just tired of seeing people blame it on M$...

Don't you think that Best Buy (the largest electronics retailer,) has a little more buying power than Freepay. Best Buy and Microsoft are working hand in hand with the release of the 360. Of course they are going to have more priority than any one else.

And if Freepay doesn't have any news, why should Jake post on this thread everyday. He said they will have news in Jan. So fuckin wait like the rest of us, or go buy one yourself.

Knowing FreePay still hasn't gotten around to sending any of these out is a little disconcerning since they promised to have them out when it was released. At the very least they owe people an apology. Every system that has come out in the past 8 years has had a "shortage" at launch, it is manufactured intentionally to create artificial hype for the system. Hopefully FreePay learns from its mistake and preorders some PS3s because I promise there will be another "shortage" when it is released.

I guess I have a little less patience with them. If they were very professional about crediting on time and without manual credit as well as prompt about sending out the gifts then less people would call it a scam. I had a few friends do offers a while back that never got credited, I told them to write a customer support ticket etc but they would rather just be done with it because they thought it was all a scam. I can't blame them since they say you get credit in a certain amount of time (2-3 days a lot of times) and then they don't always follow through, same thing with delivering the 360s. If you say you are going to do something and don't follow through with it then people are going to call it a scam especially in this area of business because people are so sceptical already.

TimTheSloth

03-01-2006 12:15:57

From what I understand Trainn got 360s out to people, they could have pre-ordered some, or at least make some kind of information known to the general public on their site. They should have seen it coming and done something about it. Every system that launches has a "shortage", the manufacturers do this on purpose to create hype. n64, dreamcast, ps2, GCN, PSP, DS have all had shortages when they came out. I promise you that ps3 will too.
For a first time user, going through the process of doing an offer is a decent sized hassle. After following through with all of the requirements and still not getting credit it can be frustrating. Maybe the advertisers aren't giving credit, that isn't our fault. If they aren't giving credit then they shouldn't be on the site. The end users can't tell the difference between "advertisers aren't giving credit" and "we got money for you but we didn't turn you green". Add to this the jumping through hoops you have to do in order to contact customer service which gives the impression that they don't want you to contact customer service and resolve your issues. Don't get me wrong, I don't think it's a scam, I think FreePay is a great company with a great idea. I just think their customer service could be a lot better and it would help their company in the long run, especially when the company's reputation is so important to getting new customers.

It is free. Just because you have to pay for refs doesn't change that. My first few gifts were 100% free.

Yeah I'm sure if they had 5 or 6 360s to send out, they'd be on the way but considering they have hundreds to ship, I'm sure they are waiting until they can fulfilll at least a chunk at a time. There is 0 obligation for them to ship within a certain timeframe. If you don't like it, go buy one at the store. Oh wait, there are none...

The least they could do is start getting some approvals done. I'd hate to wait this long, and then when they [bcc2b219f77]finally[/bcc2b219f77] start shipping out, find out 1 or 2 of my refs didn't go through. With this long of a wait, there's no reason I shouldn't know my status.

It's not "free." I paid for my referrals and for my offer, and freepay got paid from clickbooth or whatever, and freepay isn't getting Xboxes for free.

Nothing is free, that's just what's used to gain attention.

It is free. Just because you have to pay for refs doesn't change that. My first few gifts were 100% free.

Yeah I'm sure if they had 5 or 6 360s to send out, they'd be on the way but considering they have hundreds to ship, I'm sure they are waiting until they can fulfilll at least a chunk at a time. There is 0 obligation for them to ship within a certain timeframe. If you don't like it, go buy one at the store. Oh wait, there are none...[/quotea89ef5de45]

I expect it from the noobs but come on ilanbg you cant understand whats going on here? Wolfeman's right it's free, if you choose to pay for it that's your business not freepay's.

Their reputation is on the rise not the downfall cause you have to wait as long as anyone else to get a 360.

I dont think trainn has shipped one since the initial shipment. Now think how big freepay is and how redicolous it is to suggest they ship 360's one at a time.

Oh I got 20 here, I can go to best buy and get 10 here, that is crazy.

Just chill everyone Jake will come on here and say information when he has it

He said none will ship out before January...so yes that means in one week when he says none untill february he didn't lie, he just didn't know there would still be a shortage still.

prepare for the worst and if the best comes be plesently surprised

Knowing FreePay still hasn't gotten around to sending any of these out is a little disconcerning since they promised to have them out when it was released. At the very least they owe people an apology. Every system that has come out in the past 8 years has had a "shortage" at launch, it is manufactured intentionally to create artificial hype for the system. Hopefully FreePay learns from its mistake and preorders some PS3s because I promise there will be another "shortage" when it is released.

Most people who preordered the Xbox 360 didn't even get theirs on the first day it was out. The local Game Crazy had 50 preorders and only recieved 10 Xboxes. 6 premium / 4 core

I probably sound a lot more pissed than I am. I'm actually more annoyed with other people saying stupid things in this thread than at freepay.

Still, they're [u9e1c66ab7e]not[/u9e1c66ab7e] free. Just because we didn't paid for them with cash doesn't mean they weren't paid for. Freepay made money from us because we offered services in exchange for goods; a barter exchange. Now it's freepay's responsibility to do well on that.

There may not be anything they can do for the mass, but I would be happier knowing a few orders are going out every week than knowing none are going out at all. This comes from someone who completed getipod4free (which, for those who don't know, have a three month processing time, but slowly and surely make their way down the line).

The success/growth of sites like Freepay depends on getting new customers. This may be 3 customers but how many friends do you think they will tell not to use it? and do you think they're really the only three to do an offer, not get credit and say screw it? Freepay makes its money off the testimonials of others bringing in new customers, that's why they have testimonials and pictures of customers all over their site. I think it would make a little more business sense to try and keep the customers on their side by providing a little better customer service. If they or you disagree that is fine, it's just a suggestion.

ok you've been here a week

do you think you know how everything works?

sometimes offers don't credit on time

why?

because of the script, because the advertiser didn't credit the lead, because your friends didn't accept cookies, because they used different emails or a CC.

this happens all the time

wait 15 days

submit support ticket

if they did the offer they will get credit


also me personally i did and completed freeipods before i ever saw this forum. Meaning anything I knew or learned about the site was on my own

I didnt get credit for my first offer, but instead of thinking it a scam, submitted a support ticket asking what I should do. Low behold I got credit, got my ipod later.

Airkat

05-01-2006 15:16:36

It's nto our fault your friends were too lazy to write a support ticket. Does it cost them anything? Before calling it a scam they shouldve verified that it was. They didn't bother to contact freepay to recify the situation and now think it's a scam.. yeah.. the kind of users I'd love to have /sarcasm

TimTheSloth

05-01-2006 15:59:04

I don't understand why you guys are getting so upset at me. I've been doing this for much more than a week, I'm no newb to Freepay. I recieved my free ipod in April and have been lurking on this site but just recently decided to sign up because I get most of my referrals from people I know. I also know sometimes the credits don't go green for various reasons. I also know it's not a scam.
My friends dont think the whole site is a scam, they know I've gotten free stuff. They just think that it's shady that they don't get the credit when they follow all of the very detailed instructions, including ligitimately trying out the service to see if they would like it. The offer says "do this and you will recieve credit in 2-3 days" not "do this and you might recieve credit, if you don't you will have to go through 10 pages to submit a customer service ticket that will take 10-15 days to be answered".
I myself of course would submit a ticket and follow up but for them it just isn't worth all of the hassle. It's kind of like when you see something advertised at a certain price then when you get to the store and it rings up for more. Sure you can go track down the ad, bring it back, and get the right price but for a lot of people it just isn't worth it. They will just put it back on the shelf.

In my opinion, in the long run Freepay could use the more casual customers that they lose in the frequent hassles. I posted in this topic to say that I think things like not shipping 360s and launch and offers not going green are costing FreePay customers. Like I said if you guys disagree there really isn't a need to argue about it. I'm going to continue doing the sites regardless, you will too. I'd suggest we just drop it and agree to disagree, start a new topic or take it to PMs because this is getting pretty off topic.

Wolfeman

05-01-2006 17:59:55

Freepay would love it if everyone on here never did a site again. We complete them and help others to do the same thing. They do fine getting new people and your just going to have to wait for your 360...

ilanbg

05-01-2006 18:26:58

I know in theory we hurt the freebie game, but plenty of sites do fine without advertising anywhere other than forums like FIG, A4F, etc.

Their TOS also states they cannot guarantee credit for any offer and also state things can interfere with the crediting process.

It comes down to your friends not understanding/knowing the full situation and jumping to conclusions. Which is where the "their loss" comes in. I stand by it.

I like the way you think
+kma for being an intelligent...well noob for lack of a better word

also wolfeman is right, while Im sure freepay is really happy we are getting our gifts, as it rises their popularity, they wouldn't miss us if we vanished

but ilanbg they assign someone here to control scamming of their sites, and to keep us happy, we represent a sample of their population. So they ask us for suggestions, trends, keep track of what we are doing at the same time and keep us from doing anything that will hurt their business in the long run.

that's my idea at least.

They're here to please their customers. If they didn't want us as customers, they wouldn't pay a rep to come here.

I think they may still make money from sending out gifts, albeit very minimal amounts. They send out so much that they must get decent deals on bulk ware, and they have lots of offers that rotate and probably pay decent as well, and they have the survey at the beginning. Maybe they break even, or maybe they lose money, who knows.

Exactly. Would you be happy if they shipped out 24? The chances you'd be the one to get one would be pretty slim and you'd all still be here bitching that they aren't shipping and why didn't they send you one...

Good point, if they can't ship them all at the same time they should just ship none. That would make people bitch way less.

Wolfeman

11-01-2006 12:27:53

Or wait until you can get a decent amount with more coming soon after so you can start shipping consistently instead of 24 because that wouldn't have solved a damn thing...

1)Most stores only have a 30 day return policy. Since we don't have any idea when Freepay will start shipping, who would want to risk passing the 30 days?

2)Stores now check the barcodes and know if it came from their store.

Drummer16161616

I wonder if freepay could give us the invoice for the 360's since lisomeli of them have issues and I would like to have a warranty (

Alien Zulu

11-01-2006 17:47:11

a warranty does not come from the store it comes from the manufacturer
your 360 will have the same warranty as any you just don't have a store to return it too

Keep in mind that warranty doesn't mean shit with XBOX.. If an XBOX 1 is sitting on store shelves for a month and someone picks it up.. Guess what? Your warranty has been deducted by a month. It goes by manufacture date, not purchase date..

Not sure if the XBOX 360 is treated in the same way..

Drummer16161616

12-01-2006 12:24:45

You have to send in your receipt and show proof of purchase in order to get the warranty. At least, that's how it was for the psp.

Sunday is the begining of a week. If you call Monday the beginning of a week you're talking business weeks in which case Friday is the end of the week.

I would be happy if they shipped some out, as long as they did it in order of who finished first. It would be 24 less 360's they'd have to ship out to us and worry about.

And it would show that they are trying to get them for us.

[quote65de4623d8="h3x"]I have a feeling the news will be that XBOX 360s will not ship until February.[/quote65de4623d8]

I think they should keep thier mouth shut till they get them or say something when they are 100% sure when they are going to get them.If they say Feb. and Feb. comes and they delay again. People will skitz even more and there will be 4x the amount of posts as there is now and even more hell will brake loss.

On the other hand as Ive stated before. They are providing us a service by providing free products and we provide them the offer completions so they make thier money. Its a symbiotic relationship in which we both benefit. The thing that has ticked me off though is that we follow thier guidelines and they almost always get thier money up front for our offer completions yet rather than evolve to the incresing popularity and demand of thier free sites they fail to hire more personel, fine tune thier processes of approval and crediting, or provide consistant customer support

Will you guys STFU and stop acting like fucking babies!!!

Seriously -- there are enough people here like me that have gotten 5+ items already from freepay. How can you be such an idiot and think they are gonna scam us?

As for Jake -- he works for a company and has been real good to me and others here -- Just be patient and STFU!

And last but not least -- No one is gettng quantities other than BestBuy. And thats because they have a "special" contract with microsoft. They can get quantaties -- BUT NO ONE ELSE CAN.

Were "some" of you guys so fucking stupid that you actually thought you were gonna get one from freepay if no one else was gonna get them?

GROW UP AND SIT ON YOUR THUMB and just wait ... Spin if you need too

psss -- been waiting for quite some time too and I dont care if I got to wait another 2 months -- Im gonna sell it either way. As for the PS3's -- hope you idiots who are whining here dont think you are gnna get that on the release too. This rant was also only meant for the whiners ...

Well that's all well and good, but last I checked, freepay wasn't some shit little company that had to stand in line at Best Buy to get their copies to ship. Freepay has some stroke and could atleast start sending them out to people that finished first...

I'll help you out because I know your a noob to this. There have been other companies just like freepay that we all held our trust in that fucked us over time and time again, so I dont think it's unreasonable to hear some bitching from people when we're being held out of information. There comes a time when pushing that month back just isn't good enough.
