When it comes to getting a free iPhone online, there is some good news and some bad news. The good news is that it is entirely possible. There are legitimate ways to become a proud owner of an awesome piece of technology without having to pay an outrageous price.
However, there is a catch. Many ads like to make it seem as simple as typing in your email address so they can send you a coupon. This is not the case; they make you work for it a little bit. But if you make it to the end, it is worth the hassle.
First, you will have to sign up for some sort of affiliate site. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it’s free. These websites are generally survey or opinion poll sites that are used for marketing research.
Second, you will have to complete one or multiple offers from the advertisers on the site. This usually includes signing up for a free or reduced price trial for product or service. Common advertisers are NetFlicks, Blockbuster, and Reunion.com. You do not have to commit yourself to the product or service, but you will likely be asked to fill out a survey at the end of the trial period. Be sure to read the fine print regarding recurring payments to avoid unnecessary charges.
The next step is where it gets slightly tricky. Many times you will be asked to refer several friends to the same affiliate site from step one. This could be the end of the line where you will then begin filling out the address form so your iPhone can be shipped, but certain tricky sites will not consider the transaction complete until those referred friends go through the process themselves.
While your iPhone will not technically be free if you take into consideration the cost of the trials, paying for a $7.99 trial to get a $400 phone seems like a fair trade.
