These days, one can find countless websites claiming to offer free laptops and other gadgets to consumers without anything in return. Most of us already know that many of these websites are scams that try to lure unsuspecting surfers into handing over sensitive data, such as credit card information, with promises of free merchandise. Despite the plethora of websites with offers that, quite frankly, are too good to be true, there are a handful of legitimate sites offering a variety of consumer electronics in return for minimal participation in certain promotional offers.
One website that has quickly become popular among Internet users is Free Laptops 4 All. Even though this site specializes in free notebook computer offers, it also contains sections with offers for smartphones, video games and consoles, and gift cards. The main page on which the laptop offers are located opens with an explanation about why the offers located on the site are legitimate. As explained at the site: “Companies are ready to give away free products such as laptops, smartphones, video game consoles and other electronics just to get some exposure. This is a common advertising strategy that is used to attract potential customers.” With this opening statement, the site aims to put aside any doubts that the visitor may have about the legitimacy of the offers posted. The laptop offers that follow provide a wide selection of models and are divided into Macintoshes, PCs, and tablets. A particularly popular model offered among the Macintoshes is the MacBook Air, which claims to be the world’s thinnest notebook computer. Also available among the tablet computers is the new Apple iPad, which many people have been eager to get their hands on since its release.
The page with offers to free smartphones is similarly divided into three sections: iPhones, BlackBerrys, and Android phones. It should come as no surprise that the most popular phones with the site’s visitors is the iPhone, and most particularly, the iPhone 4. There is a variety of offers in which one can choose the model and color of their iPhone. Other popular choices on this page are the BlackBerry Bold, including an offer for his and her BlackBerry Bolds, and the Motorola Droid.
The free video game and console page is especially mouth-watering for the gaming population. As expected, the models of consoles offered include the Xbox 360, the Sony Playstation 3, and the Nintendo Wii. The site currently provides a whopping 12 different free video games to choose from. Many of the free video game offers also throw in a free game console.
The added bonus on the website is the page with a long list of offers for free gift cards. Topping the list are gift cards for Best Buy, The Home Depot and Sam’s Club. In addition, the visitor can obtain free gift cards to other retail outlets, restaurants, and specialty stores. With Christmas just around the corner, this is sure to be a highly visited page since gift cards are becoming a popular gift item. Finally, the site also has pages with offers for residents in Canada and the United Kingdom. While they do not contain a wide variety of products, they are nevertheless attractive to residents in those countries that unfortunately cannot participate in the rest of the offers at the website.
The overall design of the website is not particularly remarkable, but it is clean, simple, and straightforward. At the end of the day, it is the quality and legitimacy of the offers that make the site attractive and is the main reason as to why it has become so popular.
