    Where have you seen the iPod Shuffle used as a giveaway?

    Resident Satisfaction Survey
    I got a letter from my apartment complex, stating that residents will be recieving a Resident Satisfaction Survey called REACT. The survey is produced by the consulting firm of CEL & Associates, Inc....
    By filling out this survey, you will recieve a set of raffle tickets to win a FREE Apple iPod Shuffle.

    1) Apply online for a Regular Checking account with the Citibank® EZ Checking account package
    2)Fund the account with $1,500
    3) Pay 2 bills online each month for the first 12 consecutive calendar months at citibankonline.com. You will receive your iPod® shuffle* within 90 days after you pay your first 2 bills online at citibankonline.com

    I guess the iPod Shuffle is the new Toaster when opening an account for banks :p

    Um, :rolleyes: we do too.

    The Shuffle is an attractive prize or premium, it isn't too expensive but it has outrageously good brand recognition and desirability.

    With any advertising promotion, the price is just a cost of the promotion. So when we give away a Shuffle for each 500 quote requests, it means a cost to us of CAN$0.38 per lead. Combined with the $0.15 or so we pay Google, that's pretty reasonable value for advertising.

    Look out for that first one though, it is a popular trick to make the prize a set of tickets for a chance at another prize -- but the pool of contestants is usually much larger than implied (city or province wide, rather than just your building's residents as you might assume) so the value of that chance is very small.

    In MacMall I saw one software company offering a new Shuffle for every purchase of their software. My friend got lucky and won one at PostProm, I got to get my hands on one!

    in the uk, t-mobile had an offer whereby if you sign up for a contract, they would give you a shuffle.

    the promo's ended now i think, but they still sell ipod shuffles in t-mobile stores.

    when you sold back your book at my school this year, you could enter to win one of the three iPod shuffles. I didn't win :(
