Free iPod Touch, iPhone, Xbox 360, cash and more: How to get it all for free!

It’s been a couple months since I’ve posted about this and, since Life In Student Ministry has hundreds of new readers since then, I wanted to share this with everyone again, especially the new-comers. Welcome!

For over a year now I’ve been getting free stuff from freebie sites online. The list of prizes I’ve received is too long to name each item individually, but here’s a start:

Check out those links above for pictures and screenshots of the free iPod Touches, Xbox 360 Elite, and PayPal cash payments as proof that I really do get this stuff for free. For example, here’s the 16 GB iPod Touch I got for free and the Xbox 360 Elite I also got for FREE (click to see full-size):

Interview with co-owner of Bonus Network

Recently I was fortunate enough to be able to interview a co-owner of the Bonus Network, the company I use that gives all this stuff (and more) away. Watch it below:

List of Bonus Network sites

*The login you create at one Bonus Network site is valid for all the other sites.

Prizes Sign-up Link 100% Legit
Free iPodiPod Touch, Nano, Classic, Shuffle, cash
Free iPhoneiPhone, Apple gift card, cash

Free PlayStation 3PlayStation 3 (40 GB), PlayStation 3 (80 GB), cash
Free MacbookLaptops from Apple, Sony, HP, Dell, more, cash
Free Plasma TVPlasma TVs from Samsung, Sony, LG, more, cash

How it works

Bonus Network1. Click one the sites listed above and sign up there to create an account.

2. Complete 1 or 2 trial offers (like Blockbuster, Netflix, a credit history check for $1.00, etc.) to reach 100% credit (found under the “Offers” tab when logged in to the Bonus site).

3. Use the your referral link found on the “Status” page of your account to give to other people to sign up for the site and also complete 1 or 2 trail offers.

4. Once they do so, receive your prize for FREE!

My story

It honestly isn’t any more difficult than that. I know it sounds too good to be true, but I promise it is 100% credible. I’ve received so many prizes that I actually stopped blogging about each one as to not annoy you all with it each time. Seriously, just try it out. I guarantee it works and is completely legitimate.

My total out-of-pocket expenses for all the trial offers combined that I’ve completed is about $100. Not bad for an Xbox 360 Elite, Xbox Live Gold, Halo 3, two iPod Touches and thousands of dollars in cash! Some of the offers are even completely free and others cost only $1.00. Just try out an advertiser’s service for a period of time, get some friends to do the same through your Bonus Network referral link, and you get your free prize. Here’s a summary I wrote a while back about my experiences with some of the trial offers I’ve completed so far. (Note that not all of the offers I mention are still available.)

Here are 10 ideas for getting referrals, which is exactly how I earn them myself. And after your first prize shows up, it becomes very easy to earn more because now you have proof for anyone who is skeptical. After I got my Xbox 360 Elite, I tried for an iPod Touch and it took only 5 days to get all the referrals I needed because everyone actually saw my Xbox and knew it would work, because it does!

And as Fehz said in the video above, Bonus Network guarantees that you will receive credit for any trial offer you do with an advertiser through them, even in the rare case that something goes wrong with it. All you have to do is send Bonus a copy of your confirmation email from the advertiser and they will gladly give you full credit for your efforts, so there’s really no risk in trying it.

Common excuses

Most people would love to earn some of these free prizes, but there’s three common excuses:

  1. It’s a scam!
  2. I’ll get hit with a ton of spam mail.
  3. Completing offers costs more than the prize itself!
  4. I don’t think I can get others to complete referrals for me.

For #1, check out the links above. I’ve done it several times and received several prizes, so I know it’s not a scam. Concerning #2, I have not received one single shred of spam as a result of completing these trial offers or freebie sites, not via email nor postal mail. These companies actually have pretty aggressive privacy statements. Number 3 also is not true. As I said above, I’ve paid about a total of $100 out-of-pocket for all these free things combined. The most I ever paid for a single offer was $24.98 for a sheet of photo stamps. Most offers cost between absolutely nothing and $5. And about #4, check out this post I wrote that gives 10 ideas for how to earn referrals for your freebie site. They work for me, anyway!

If you have any questions about the process, I’ve done it many many times, so feel free to ask in the comments below. Fehz, a co-owner of the Bonus Network, will also be around this post in case you have any questions for him, too.

  • Awesome post! And yes, anyone can contact me at any time via my email (

  • TimJ

    Ive tried this before but couldnt get anyone to complete the offers- if any other Life In Student Ministry readers want to collaborate on this to help each other out please email me

  • @ TimJ: Sorry to hear you couldn't get any referrals. Either you didn't try hard and long enough (the first prize took me several months to get because people are naturally skeptical) or you communicated it in such a way that left people feeling that maybe you weren't too confident about it either. It does take time to get that first prize, but after that they roll in like crazy, once you have physical proof instead of, "I know a guy who got this all free."

  • I finally signed up to get my free iPod Touch. I already got five people to sign up and I've completed my offers. I trust Tim and know this is not a scam. Give it a try. I can't wait to get my iPod Touch!

  • Hey TimJ, as long as you are confident in the way you present the idea of freebies to your possible referrals, most will be willing i’ve noticed. If they are still skeptical, you should have them do some research on freebie proof themselves. On our sites, we have a few testimonials up and are constantly adding as we get them. As said by Tim S., once you obtain your first gift, things get easier from there. Definitely check out his article about 10 methods of obtaining referrals. If you need any more help, feel free to email me.

  • Great idea. I’m going to try to earn an extra PS3 to give away at our big New Year’s Eve Youth Group event!

  • Good luck Jeff!

  • Tim –
    Finally signed up this time. Completed my first offer. Waiting for referrals and for another worthy-offer for myself.

    Hoping for the best!


  • @Stevan: Excellent! I found that people who reach 100% completion of the offer requirements right off the bat are A LOT more motivated to get referrals than people who stop at 50%, and thus they actually end up cashing out on prizes. I have never seen someone stop at 50% and later reach 100% and cash out, maybe because they figure they haven’t invested too much yet? Hope you do it, though!

  • Adam

    Do the offers rotate in and out? I’m not seeing stuff like that others mentioned. It would be cool and helpful to see a few more things i’m interested in :-)

  • @Adam: Yes, different offers come and go. It’s not based on a rotation or anything, just depends on the agreements and advertising opportunities available.

  • I signed up for the bonus network but so far have not been impressed. Their sites are down a lot and I have yet to hear back from them regarding a question I had with an offer and my account.

  • @Jeff: Sorry you’re having trouble with it. I’ve never had an issue with them about anything. I doubt your experience is typically the norm. Try contacting Fehz directly using the email address he gave in the video:

  • Bonus Network Fehz

    @Jeff: Our sites have been done for 0 minutes since September 23rd, 2008 literally so i’m not sure what’s going on. Also, all support questions are taken care of within a few hours as long as they are submitted via a support ticket.

  • Roc

    Hey Tim, great post. I’m currently working on getting my first free gift from bonus network.

    I would like to know, how you were able to created/insert the table with the site in a Word Press post. Its pretty neat.

    Thanks for a reply.

  • @Roc: WordPress posts can handle HTML just fine. I just coded it into the post using HTML, that’s all.

  • How many referrals did it take to get the TV?

  • @Dustin Wilson: You can sign-up for the Plasma TV site above to check out more details, but it’s about 20 referrals.

  • Lots of of bloggers are not too pleased with this new iPad.There was just 2 much hoopla about it and lots of blogers got turned off.Quite frankly, I for one see great deal of the awesome potential uses of the gadget. Third-party applications for working with tunes, games, papers and magazines and books, all sorts of neat stuff, but IMHO they failed to sell it properly (aside from the books). It smells sort of undercooked

  • This post was very nicely written, and it also contains a lot of useful facts. I appreciated your distinguished manner of writing this post. You have made it very easy for me to understand.
