Years ago i was visiting a website and saw an offer for a "free" laptop, you know one of those annoying blinking ads you see everywhere. Just for kicks I filled out the form to see what would happen. I figured worst case I get some junk mail, big deal. As months pass by I completely forget about filling out that form until one day I come home from work and see a package at my door step. To my surprise it's a shiny new Dell laptop. Ever since then I have been hooked. I fill out at least a couple offers everyday and have accumulated some pretty sweet loot that didn't cost me a penny.

I won, I won...a broken tv!!

Long story short, a few months ago i fill out an offer for a free sony 40" lcd tv. The weeks pass by and I totally forget about it since i normally only end up getting products on about 1/4 of the offers I sign up for. I come home from work one day and see a giant sony box on my porch!  I drag the box inside, open it up to find my beautiful new tv with a giant crack in the screen.  I called sony & they said they are not responsible, UPS says they didn't do it.  Now I have a brand new 40" hdtv that is broken and I can't afford to fix it.

Here is the form in case anyone is interested.  It had to have been the shipping companies fault.  I see how they throw those boxes around.    

I've tried selling this on Craigslist with no luck.  Too many people say they are going to show up and never do so I'm giving it away.  It'll be out on the curb if anyone wants it.
