    I wouldn't bother. By the time you actually get to finishing all the "offers" (it's usually 6 or so, not 2), you've spent so much money on garbage you didn't want that it's cheaper and faster to just go buy whatever you were after in the first place.

    I seem to remember older offers like that (haven't clicked on a 'free ipod' gimmick in ages..) requring you to both sign up for and then be accepted for several credit cards. Also subscribing to magazines etc. Easier to get a job at a gas station for two weeks then quit when you get paid.

    Its not so much where you are as when you are.
    My wife went to do that once for me. She signed up for 3 credit cards and a ton of spam before she decided she didn't want to get involved in MLM diet products or get a new 3 year plan cell phone.

    Yes it works, gets you banned on MacRumors. :D

    Try it, we'll enjoy the show.

    Have to watch out for a lot of those "free" offers these days -- the $5 30-90 trials quickly lead to $100 bills being slapped against your credit card -- and a long war trying to get the charges removed.
