Although there are obviously a couple of scammers out there that have made plenty of money out of people wanting a free ipad, people shouldn't let one scammer put them off getting what is there for the taking on the internet.
Companies like HSBC, Alliance and Leicester, Lovefilm, Netflix, Blockbuster, Sky and BT pay incentive sites like FreebieJeebies (mainly UK but kind of international) good money for you to try their product (and there genuinely are free trials of products from household name companies, there are also paid ones, but obviously the free ones are the most popular and the ones that you want to go for) and FreebieJeebies then pass this cash (well, most of it) onto you in the form of any reward you want.
This will also include 'free ipads'. The BBC, CNN, NBC and tech magazine T3 have fully investigated and found this to be all legitmate, backed by some of the largest worlwide companies around, the free ipad is simply a different form of the marketing via the internet that started with the free iPod sites. You can now get anything you want.
Be sensible, do your research. For goodness sake don't get scammed, search the internet, you can find out pretty quickly if something is legit on the internet nowadays.
Find something genuine and you'll soon see that you can get all the gadgets you want for free, you just have to be a bit savvy about it and not get conned.
