Hi - I will be happy to assist you with this.

Is it a rip-off? Sort of. Is it a scam? Not entirely.

Basically, in order to get the iPad, you need to complete a lot of surveys, offers, trials, and sign up for a few credit cards and other services, like cell phone or TV service.

There are some reported success stories, but those are rare. It's just too much work, too much to keep track of, and too much to try to prove to make them actually send it to you.
