DIY Site Recommendations (for help choosing where to start)
This thread should help those new people who are considering where to start, and those vets who are looking for what to do next. It should also help clear some clutter.
I'll start us off with some basic info.
The two biggest are YF Direct, and Nuitech.
Nuitech = Incredible turnaround, steep offer requirements (couple OOD, and high offer amounts).
YFD = Slow turnaround (3-5 months) but very low requirements (usually NO OOD, and low offer amounts).
Good idea. Although when you say Steep offer Requirement, do you mean a lot of offers, or expensive offers, same with Low Requirements.
Does anyone know of any DIY (legit) sites that have newer unlocked GSM cell phones (preferably the ones that can be used in other countries, like triband 900, or quadband)
I saw some hot cells, like the Nokia 7370
or the O2 XDA Mini S
Any help appreciated.
I know NUItech and YFD have some sites for baby phat phones, moto razrs, and some mobile phones running windows mobile or palm. But I havent seen any that have hot mobiles that noone really has around here. RAZRs are overrated.
(if this is in the wrong section, can a mod move it? or tell me and i will)

you're right. fixed.
moksha -- Nuitech has a site for a treo, and also for the p910. Now I don't remember if you saw my phone at the party, but that's the p910
I'm lookin for the best YFDirect laptop for my sister to do. Any suggestions?
I can't speak for their other sites, but I did the InternetOpinionGroup HP. Pretty high end. There's also the iBook at gadgetcity..
I saw your p910, it was hot, but check this out, p970 is just announced
6 my friend.. and moksha I think they made a mistake, its the p990
Sweet, thanks for the input Airkat. Anyone else do one for a different laptop? The thing is my sister is a complete freebie virgin, so she could probably easily do up to 18 offers if it means she gets an even better laptop. (I'm still thinkin YFDirect though, just to avoid OOD. But if you know of a nice Nuitech with some decent last page offers, I'm all ears!) I've been huntin myself, but a lot of them don't put any specs, which is why I'm askin yous guys.

Wow, that is a pretty good deal. Did you get the Laptop yet and what's their turnaround like?
IOG? If so, no laptop yet. It's a YFD site.. but I've printed out 5/6 certificates already. I really wanna change to a gift card tho since I got a laptop already.
As for nuitech, lemme search my stash )
Nice, you're kickin ass right now Airkat. Right now I'm thinkin the HP, but didn't you get that 8 offer Acer? How is it?
Good cept it needs more ram (comes with 256)
can you do any offers on nuitech? or do they have to be on the page that is says they're supposed to be on?
i'm looking for a laptop, but i'm thinking i'm going to be going with this one
which one shoud i get, the Sony or the Tobisha?
probably cheaper than nuitech..although both are 8 offers and i guess the only difference bigwin has over nuitech is no OODs...thanks
They have to be on the page they say.
that's what i was afraid of....
well i have 3 options. go for the nuitech acer for 8 offers, the bigwin sony for 8 offers, or the nuitech sony for 18 offers.
i think i'm gonna go w/ the bigwin on this one. it'll take longer, but as long as i have it in time for college i'll be happy. thanks P
BigWin has a powerbook for only 2 more than the standard ibook (8 total)
If I did the everyfreegift.com 1000 dollar visa. What kind of info would I need to send them when I send in the voucher? What kind of tax stuff would I need to do? Ive never done a DIY site.

But Ive been reading if its over 600 dollars you need to send in a W9.

Not for YFDirect. They don't comply with IRS Regulations I guess.

i'm not looking for a mac
Can anyone suggest a good site with fairly quick turnaround of either money or a gift over 500ish?
DId you even read this thread?

Yes yes I did. I plead laziness. I'll go back and figure out for myself. oops
Sweeney just look around and read a little and you'll see whats the best for ya...
There is a new sticky with network info to help you choose which network to do.
With the downfall of YFD (well not the downfall, but i can't do that many cc offers), what's the best site for a laptop? the nuiteck acer? vaio? does nuitech have an iBook? thanks for the help, and if someone could gimme links that'd awesome. the nuitech master list was taken down a while back, and now i can't find anything.
I'll try to look later but YFD isn't dead, they are just taking a break IMO. They'll come back around and start offering decent page 3s again...

The offers I had available to me on page 3 were decent and hardly any CC offers. This was on Feb 27th when I signed up.
