Okay, so when I first tried to get a free iPod, just like everyone else in the Blogosphere, I was laughed at by my friends – ridiculed for getting something from a ponzi scheme (my sister’s particular phrase).
Well, ponzi scheme, schmonzi scheme. I just got word that my referrals are all done to qualify for my 80-Hr Tivo. But upon reading enough negative reviews on the 80-Hr Tivo at Amazon I’ve opted to take the other offer – for $275 in cash. According to the website I’ve been using to get my referrals, I should receive the money in my PayPal account by Wednesday of next week.
I’ll then contact DirecTV and order an upgraded DVR for $99 and pocket the remaining $150 or so that’ll be left after installation.
As an added bonus, the offer I did to start my account at DVRs4Free was Vonage phone service – which should be activated in the next few days. Cheaper phone service, cheaper Tivo, and some cash in my pocket.
How is THAT for a ponzi scheme, Jen?
Update: I just got an email from Vonage saying that our phones would be switched to their service on March 28th. Yay!
