I was googling around, and found the site below. It says "See for yourself just complete any three offers for your free Plasma TV! Complete any four offers for your free Plasma TV and $500 cash. We will receive confirmation via email from the selected sponsors that you have completed their offers." I saw that and thought all offers would be the worst OOD's. They are

Columbia House
BlockBuster
Gotta Play
Wild Blue
American Express
Vonage
Stamps.com
TrimLife
Super Foods RX
Cigarrest
Shutterfly
Diet.com
GameFly
Comcast
USA Today Sports Weekly
Hughes Net
Jillian Michael Diet
South Beach Diet
Assurant Health
Verizon

Not very dificult offers. Thoughts? Seems too good to be true.

The site looks very ghetto. lol They didn't do a very good job of photoshopping the tv onto the background picture. lol They also stole some of the stuuf from the top part and the bottom with the black background from a ProductTestPanel site. For some reason their kind of blurry lol

I would avoid this site like the plague.

I signed up just to check it out. The offers are your typical $40-$50 payout offers, just like I-Deal and most ref sites. There is NO WAY they can afford to give away a 58" Plasma for 3 offers, or an additional $500 for one extra offer. Just doesn't make sense. I smell scam. At the least they're banking on a VERY high breakage rate (like 201 or something).

Ah, that explains it then. I looked at the terms but they were so poorly formatted (one big run-on paragraph) that I got a headache trying to read it. Completely glossed over that, apparently. Way to misrepresent a freebie site, losers!

This site is bullshit
I just signed up to look at it and i took a look at the offers page. I dont think there is a way of them tracking you. the link goes directly to the affiliate site without any user tracking information
