Free stuff from Microsoft

Post by bizzle » Sun Aug 08, 2004 6:41 am

From what I heard, this works, you just can't get enough points for XP, the mouse/keyboard combo/Office XP. You can still get the free Microsoft Wireless mouse, Encarta, and Flight Sim 2004.

I searched, but didn't find that it was already posted, so here ya go..

http://www.overclockinghq.com/articles/ ... nswers.php <-- All the answers. The URL to sign up is there, too. It takes about 15 minutes to do all the tests, and its worth it for the few free things you can get.

THIS IS NOT A REFERAL THING. YOU CAN NOT EVEN REFER PEOPLE ANYMORE.

Why do I have the feeling I've seen this before... :o :?:

Hmmm, I can't remember.

Anyhoo, is it worth it?

Yeah, I guess. You can get a free Microsoft Wireless mouse for 10 minutes of work, and Flight Sim 2004. BTW, only valid in the USA.

Yeaa I think I've posted these before:

http://retail.microsoft.com

and

http://retail.xbox.com

Those are both the same kindof thing, only with xbox games/attire, and Microsoft stuff (not hardware). THere is no quick and easy answer site for that though-- but you can really get a ton of xbox games 8-)

Wal-Mart won't work for that ... but Target will (which is where I worked)

Store numbers can generally be found through google. 8-)

Yes, Wal-Mart is on the list to do the xbox and Microsoft training, but Wal-Mart has a policy that you cannot get any free stuff. =\

I think I remember everyone talking about this when I worked at Staples. Is this only for retail employees and, if so, can you get in trouble with MS through this?

If there's one thing I don't want it's to tick off MS. They might disable my copies of Windows XP and make Office not function anymore.

It looks to be for anyone with a company. You can ad your own company, so I doubt its only for retail stores.

Anybody else getting stuck in a loop signing up for a Hotmail acct? I signed up, filled out all the info, then they take me to a screen that has info about their extended email services, or click to sign up for a free one. The title bar at the top of the screen says...
MSN Hotmail - Complete Hotmail Account Sign-up
I click on the "free email" button, and it starts me over from the beginning..

WTF?????

You were 500 short? I and most people I've talked to get to 100 short of them. Sure you filled all of them out?
