Who wouldn’t want a laptop for free? Even those who already have a laptop or two at home will certainly appreciate acquiring a new one without paying a single cent!
Recently, AtCheap.com announced a contest offering the opportunity to win a free HP laptop, and it’s still open. AtCheap.com is a site which offers comparison services. It does what it says on the tin – you basically search for a product that are looking to purchase. The site then does the tedious task of comparing product prices from more than 60,000 stores. All that is left for you to do is to look at the cheapest prices shown in the search results.
AtCheap.com covers not only laptops but other gadgets such as digital cameras, televisions, mobile phones, mp3 players, and watches. You can also search for and compare products such as clothing, make up, sunglasses, and so on.
The contest is simple. You just need to go the AtCheap web site and sign up. The thing that I am not too sure about is that you need to log in using Facebook. I am a stickler for privacy so when it comes to logging in on other sites, I prefer not to link my Facebook account. Also, you need to invite 25 friends to qualify for the contest. I am not sure, but that sounds a little spammy. Still, if you want that chance to win the laptop, then you might as well go for it.
Based on a press release published by the company ((Press Release)), there are 1,000 laptops up for grabs, and only 500 have been given away so far. After signing up and inviting friends, you simply have to wait for the guys at AtCheap to get in touch with you via e-mail. They will ask for your shipping address, and you just have to wait for that freebie.
It sounds too good to be true, to be honest, but it just might give you that extra laptop to play around with. Or if you really need a laptop, then joining the contest is a no-brainer. Unfortunately, this seems to be a US-only promo, so those of us in other parts of the world will have to sit this one out.
