Sounds good so far yeah ?.....well, not quite.....let me explain why.........
This is an example of some of the FREE gifts on offer:
A Neoprene laptop sleeve."Worth £13.99" + £2.99 postage. I bought one of these in the POUND SHOP 2 weeks ago....yes, for a pound !
An HDMI Cable. "Worth £12.99" Err...sorry again ! £1.99 actually in Home Bargains ...less than the postage for my "FREE" item !
A 12-in-1 card reader. Worth £9.99 (as they tell you) ? No.Bought one the exact same from the POUND SHOP...for a pound (Strangely) 2 weeks ago! And yet again you have to pay £2.99 for their postage !
A 4GB MP3/4 player. Foehn & Hirsch W180 Groove MP4 Player 4GB FM Radio G-Sensor and Charger with 1.8 TFT Screen Black.£ 27.99 (SRP £59.99)+£2.99 P&P. Erm.........Ebay says you are wrong
So be warned, all that glitters is not gold, and all that is "free" may actually be being sold !
Suffice to say that I won't be "buying" any of these "rewards" :-)
