    I heard about a website called "freeusipad.com" on the radio.
    They ask you to fill out a bunch of surveys and such, then it takes you to a screen.

    They ask you to sign up for 2 free trials.
    The company definitely gets paid to bring in customers to those sponsors, so maybe it could be legit. Maybe the money they get from sponsors pays for the iPad?

    I'm very very hesitant though, because I highly doubt this will work.

    Anyone think this is possible?

    Thanks for the feedback.
    I was pretty sure it was, but just looking for validation.

    How do they get away with scams without being illegal?

    Well, if you click 'gift rules' and then click the 'sample offers link' in that new window, you can see what you have to do to get an iPad (so they say). The idea is that you sign up for all of this stuff with auto renewing subscriptions. However, the tend to make it VERY difficult to actually cancel the subscription(s) to services in time before you get charged. They get away with it because they have it written properly. It's definitely deceitful, but as far as I know it's legal.

    Definitely stay away. Save your money and pay cash for your iPad.
