The logistics behind getting your free iPad are pretty straightforward… Companies simply pay FreebieJeebies for every offer that gets completed. You – the customer – are attracted by the offer of a new iPad for free, and as part of the process, you must sign up to one of their offers. This makes you a new, and potentially long-term, customer. They give you a free trial in the hope of securing your future business. It’s really just clever advertising.
I started with these reward sites back in 2007, by signing up to FreebieJeebies and the free offer back then was a 2-week free trial with LoveFilm… and I’m still a customer! So that’s 4 years I’ve been paying LoveFilm £10 per month, which has more than paid for the free PS3 I received. And the good news is, at the time of writing this, the free trial back! You won’t be disappointed as LoveFilm is an excellent service.
So basically, the freebie sites make money, the companies who supply the offers to the freebie sites make money, and you get a free iPad or any other gift you fancy… so everyone’s happy.

Click on the ‘Sign Up Now’ button below. The FreebieJeebies sign-up page will open in a new tab/window. Fill in your email address in the sign-up box, then fill in the rest of your details in the following page. Remember to verify your email address from the registration email.
NOTE: You’d be surprised by how many people create a new email address for this, as they’re concerned about spam. There’s really no need – these guys don’t do spam. You will get an email after 72 hours if you haven’t completed an offer. The email will recommend some offers to you. And that’s it. You can also sign up for their newsletter. But you won’t get any spam mails, and your details will NOT be passed on to any third parties. If they send you an email, it’ll be something you want to read. So it’s safe to use your current email address.
As part of the registration process, you will be asked to choose your gift. And if you don’t want an iPad, you can change your chosen gift at any time. You can also create a custom order, for anything that isn’t listed, and even just for cash!
Once registered, you’ll need to complete an offer. There are a selection of free offers available, but if one doesn’t suit, most of the paid offers are between £10 and £20. You don’t have to complete one straight away, but you will at some point, so it’s always best to get it out of the way. Always keep any emails you get from the advertiser following your registration for their offer.
My advice: pick something that interests you, and which you may get some benefit from now or in the future.
Depending on the offer, it can take anywhere between 2 and 45 days to track, but most offers track within a short period. Check out this video of me doing an offer, and see it credit in 2 hours:
Don’t panic if your offer hasn’t tracked. FreebieJeebies offer fantastic support, and as long as you have proof of your offer completion (in the form of registration emails, for example), they will resolve your issues in double quick time.
Sign into your account at FreebieJeebies to get your referral link. Now you need to start referring others to complete an offer of their own. You can ask friends, family, work colleagues; anyone you want.
There are many ways to do this, from a simple email, to social networking (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc), or even your own website. The number of referrals needed will depend on your chosen gift. The higher the retail price, the more referrals you’ll need. That free iPad, for example, will require 20 referrals.
Have a look at our Referrals page here the more information.
And recently, FreebieJeebies introduced a brand new feature on their Apple site – Rewards! You now don’t have to wait for others to complete offers – you can do multiple offers yourself, each worth up to 200 reward points. You can then redeem these reward points for referral credits, with 200 points per credit. Currently, this is only available on Apple.FJ, but will be rolled out across all sub-sites in the near future.
Once you’ve completed your offer and gathered the required number of referrals, it’s time to submit your order. Your account will be verified; this just means that all the completed referrals will be checked out to make sure the rules have been followed. Once this verification is complete, you’ll be given an estimated delivery date. And of course, delivery is free!
So that’s how to get a free iPad. It’s a simple process, doesn’t take too long, and anyone can do it. Millions of pounds worth of free gifts have been given away just like this, so sign up below and join in!
