Sony Wega Received: Free Flat Screens Proves To Be True
When the free iPods site became known, many were quick to write it off as a scam, even after proof was presented to show otherwise. Soon after, the free flatscreens promotion started, and again people cried foul. Well, to all the doubters (along with the hopefuls), Gear Live brings you proof of the validity of this promotion. Click for more.
So my freeflatscreens.com account had been in a "Pending" status since 7/19. On 7/26 it finally changed to a "Shipped" status. I expected the unit to arrive in about a week or two - however, this showed up today:
This package arrived today via DHL. The driver recruited my wife to carry the box up the stairs, since apparently, DHL doesn't believe in handtrucks.
Another view of the box, shipping label and J&R Music World catalogue attached.
This is the invoice from the box. As you can see, it shipped from Maspeth, NY. It was billed to an Amazon Payments account, and shipped to me direct. The invoice shows the Sony KV-27FS120 costs 379.99 plus $82.96 shipping and insurance - a total of $462.95, and I didn't pay a cent.
A view of the open box, brand new TV inside along with the remote.
Out of the box, and unwrapped - a brand new Sony Wega 27" Trinitron Flatscreen TV.
If you want to get in on the action and pick up a free flatscreen monitor or TV yourself, check out the Gear Live Boards to grab some referals.

Hey did the tv arrive ok? by the looks of it they send it with the original box which you should never do! You always put the original box inside a bigger box!
Well was it beat up? or did it arrive ok??
Thanks! I just completed my referals so i have to wait 2 days for it to approve..

Yeah good point, Chris. Despite all the insurance and whatnot, did the TV arrive in good shape?

Argh - now why can't we have an offer like this in the UK?

Looks like FFSGuide.tk linked to you too. There needs to be more good FFS sites out there.
