    They're frauds, they require you to open lines of credit, be approved and use them and buy different products. You have to complete 10 pages of offers with multiple offers on each page paying for every one that wants money. You can read this in the small print before you sign up. They do this on many topics depending what site the ads appear on.

    Seriously, who is going to give you an $1100 bass for filling out a survey.

    Always remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Here endeth the lesson.

    Although on the other hand, when FreeIpods.com had the Ebay offer, that was sweet.

    I havn't checked this out, but I'm going to make a judgement based on an article I read once.

    It was a video game magazine (I forget which. I think the Xbox one). What they did was took up one of these offers to see if it's too good to be true. They actually did get a free Xbox, but there was a LOT of work for it. They're tips were basically:
    1. Keep track of all the offers you do. It'd be easier to have a large calender or something so you'll know when to cancel the offer things.
    2. Cancel the trials on the day it expires, or a day before

    It took them somewhere around a month or so of doing that. Really, it'd be much easier to buy a new bass. And if you don't end those trials then you'll have to be paying for it. That's not good.
