    I signed up several weeks ago and have about 4 people 'still pending' and need one more. Pretty annoying. I hope I havent gotten scammed. :mad: How many of you have actually gotten an ipod through this?

    I got mine a couple of weeks ago. I'd take pics and all that, but I've found that if people don't believe you in the first place they won't buy into it even if you have pics.

    If you have the 5 referrals, my best advice would be to sit tight for a while. I had to wait over a month before my status went from Waiting on Vendor to Shipped.

    Got mine as well. It was stuck on "Waiting on vendor" for like 3 weeks. I logged in to check, and they said switching to the new HP iPod could speed things up. I did, and a week later, it arrived at my door. It took exactly (to the day) one month from the time I completed my 5th referal to the time I was unpacking it.

    PS - sure, the iPod is free, the arm band, cigarette lighter adapter, cassette adapter and screen protectors aren't :)

    I'm still waiting on getting credit from the 4 people who signed up. I suppose it could take a month if they have to complete a month deal.

    I was going to buy this, but now costco has them for $267. Pretty soon they're going to go to about $200-225 which is what I feel I could pay for them.

    so I take it I shouldnt worry if its been 3 weeks then? Guess it is a legit thing then. Just have to hope the people who signed up dont cancel :) Just need ONE more to sign up then, and to get credit for the others....

    I think there is something fishy. I've been waiting well over one month for 4 people to go completed. I know for a fact at least 2 of them did complete offers (one of them was BMG, and he even received his CDs already!)

    i got a 20gig 4th gen. took 5-6 weeks but that was because they were out of stock and whatnot. the HPod definitely sped up the process

    if you have people that have completed offers bu tnot gotten credit, have them send their offer confirmation emails to freeipods and they'll give credit. or just have them do another offer that takes 2-3 days to verify. i think ancestry and infone are pretty quick

    waiting on my last referal to get approved so i can get another ipod for my sister :D

    how?

    just curious, how do you guys who have more than one iPod through freeipods.com do it? do you just give another home address? I thought they check all that?

    If anyone got more than one and would like to sell me one for a reasonable price drop me a line. I'm sure we can work something out.
