This is a question that gets asked a lot when it comes to getting free gadgets from the referral site FreebieJeebies, so I thought I would address it in this post.
Anyway the quick answer is no, FreebieJeebies is not a scam. Unfortunately when it comes to referral websites many people just assume they are a scam, and fail to believe they aren’t no matter how much evidence is put in front of them. Even I was a bit sceptical at first until I received my first free gadget in the post.
So what exactly is FreebieJeebies?
FreebieJeebies is a worldwide independent rewards program. Since they started in March 2007 they have sent out over $1,000,000 in free gifts and gadgets, ranging from iPhones to Gaming Consoles to Fridge Freezers. Using the custom order feature on the site you can get just about anything you want.
It is owned by Richard and Alex who regularly post on eXceem, which is one of the worlds largest referral based freebie forums. Their usernames on the forums are Moviedrome (Richard) and Monkeyegg (Alex).
- FreebieJeebies were one of the first referral site to allow users to ‘roll-over’ their referrals. With FreebieJeebies you carry forward all unused freebiejeebies referrals when you order a gift.
- No time limits, ever. You can take as long as you like to get your free gadget
- They also offer tracking features on your referral list that shows you where the referral saw your link, the date and time they signed up and the country they signed up from.
- The ability to choose which item displays first when your referrals visit the site.
Since February 1, 2010 they started trading as Freebiejeebes Limited (Company Number: 7097671)
How can they afford to give away these expensive gadgets for free?
It’s quite simply really, it’s called affiliate marketing. Each time someone signs up to the referral site and completes a free trial offer or one of the other offers, the referral site gets paid from that advertiser. Here’s how it works step by step:
- You register with the referral site
- You complete a free trial offer
- The referral site gets paid from the advertiser for you completing a free trial offer
- You refer X amount of friends/family to do the same through your link
- The referral site gets paid from the advertiser for each of your friends/family who complete a free trial offer
- You then receive your free gadget
Let’s take the free Intuit offer for example. Every time some signs up to the referral site and completes it, the referral site gets paid $30. So if an iPod Nano is 5 referrals and each of your referrals complete the Intuit offer, then the referral site earns $30 x 6 (5 referrals + you) = $180. This money pays for your free gadget.
Intuit are earning potential customers and is an easy way of advertising for them. The referral site is making money and you receive your free gadget so everyone is happy.
I’m still a bit sceptical, where is the proof?
To check out the proof take a look our own proof page here. You will find pictures, videos, links and more. Also when people ask for proof I make a habit of sending them to this forum on eXceem were people post daily about stuff they have received from FreebieJeebies: I Got My Free Item
By this point if you still think it’s a scam then then there’s not much more I can say to convince you. If you aren’t already a member you can join now using this link: freebieJeebies
