  • Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it isn't true (at least 99.9% of the time).

  • To even find out if it's legit, you have to purchase items from their "offers"...2 each of silver, gold, and platinum offers, each incrementally more expensive and requiring more personal information from you. Then you have to wait 4 weeks for the "sponsors" to report that you participated and met all the requirements, and you're not allowed to cancel the "free" offers (which convert to paid offers when you don't cancel), for at least 60 days. You must complete all 6 offers within 60 days, and then there are additional Program Requirements steps you have to complete as well...If the Sponsor doesn't follow up with them by reporting that you are fulfilling their obligations (which you can likely count on them not doing), then you have to provide records of all transactions, receipts, names & dates, etc before they will even consider you eligible. This is in addition to copies of your driver's license for "verification".

  • cont..
    If you manage to get the gift redemption voucher after all of this, you will still have to wait 6-8 weeks additional time to get the actual certificate. Then after all this, they reserve the right to substitute another gift at their discretion, and tell you it is your own responsibility to keep your personal information safe while telling you that your information will be given to third parties and you are consenting to this by signing up. Oh, and, everything is sold to you "as is" so if it doesn't work the way it should, you have no recourse.

    Not worth it, in my humble opinion.
