Is Freebiejeebies A Scam?



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.
  • They take their privacy policy very seriously and you will never receive any spam from them.

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:

  1. You register with the referral site
  2. You complete a free trial offer
  3. The referral site gets paid from the advertiser for you completing a free trial offer
  4. You refer X amount of friends/family to do the same through your link
  5. The referral site gets paid from the advertiser for each of your friends/family who complete a free trial offer
  6. 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

    I just got a new phone and am DIEING to get an Iphone, no contact. I’ve searched yahoo, and all scam sites and this seems pretty legit. Next thing to do is convince my dad to let me do it 8-O ;) Tysm I believe it is legit now. :-D :wink: :roll: :-? :idea:

  • admin

    No problem, hopefully you can convince your Dad. When convincing people I always think some proof helps:
    http://www.exceem.co.uk/forums/i-got-my-free-item/

    That forum is filled with posts from people who have received their free items, so if he has any doubts show him some posts on that forum… and good luck getting your free iPhone! :D

  • Kia

    I want to get a macbook pro, but my dad doesn’t want to do any of the offers, because he’s afraid of giving his credit card out to these offers……… :(

  • admin

    The offers are from very reputable companies like Lovefilm, there is no need for him to worry at all!

  • bob

    :!: i dunno wether to do it or not !

  • admin

    Check out the proof page here and exceem. Now get started and get your free gifts and gadgets! :)

  • Jordan

    Thats a great article! and exceem looks really cool!

  • ray

    the thing is i don’t have enough money to do the trial referral thing, so i can’t really do it. so yeah, i’d really like the macbook for school, cause i’m broke and trying to get a job. :cry:

  • admin

    if you can’t afford it you can get some extra referrals instead. 2 referrals = completed offer. simply email support and ask them to credit you with a completed offer for the extra referrals. that said there are some free trial offers so you are probably best completing an offer. good luck!

  • Heather

    on average how many people would i need to refer to get a macbook?
    many thanks

  • admin

    A free macbook is one of the top gadgets you can get from freebiejeebies, it’s 39 referrals. Maybe start at something a bit lower then have a go at it! :)

    Your referrals have not completed an offer yet, just like yourself they also have to complete an offer. There are some free offers which you can complete, there are also a few others than only cost very little.
