Nothing for free is really for free.

Just wanted to point it out in case if you didn't already know: Those offers that say they give you a free shopping card for hundreds of dollars, or a free electronic gadget or TV or camera, they really aren't free. Once you get into the application process you will find out they are going to ask you for a valid credit card number to complete "offers" that will validate your eligibility. You may also need to promote their program to other potential customers, which may cost you for advertising, etc. Granted, there is a lot of free advertising out there, but you still won't get around the credit card demand.

I remember getting hooked into this when I first got online. I had no idea what these things were and thought it was really free. Luckily I didn't have a credit card and even if I did, I wouldn't have done it, but I did give out my e-mail address at the time and I got SPAMMED right out of that account. Luckily I am way more careful and your right nothing for free is really free.
